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 billons of dollars into the economy. No, that was when the Federal Reserve Board was under Chairman Ben Bernankes's leadership. Following the freeze ion 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. They purchases were made with Fed money which was created with the stroke of a pen. It was called quantitive 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 metoric 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, 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

September 1 update

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. Traditional Cod Liver oil (Garden of Life Old World Cod Liver Oil) or

2. Fermented Cod Liver Oil

3. 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.

4. 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.

Finally, Mary has set up an email address so you can write her with your questions or comments. Go to maryfrombrook@gmail.com

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

[See my latest newsletter on the newly discovered differences between vitamin D3 Sulfate that comes from sunlight and man made vitamin D2 or D3 than is not sulfated.]

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.

*"The network behind this coup had actually started planning for the coup back in 2011. That’s when Eric Schmidt of Google, and Jared Cohen,

movements’ to overthrow both Yanukovych in Ukraine, and Assad in Syria
http://washingtonsblog.com/2016/09/three-big-lies-pervade-americas-news-media.html.*

*"Then, on 1 March 2013, the implementation of this plan started: the first

mass-demonstrations against Yanukovych, was held inside the U.S. Embassy in
Kiev on that date http://washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/new-video-evidence-americas-coup-ukraine-means.html, which was over nine months before the Maidan demonstrations to overthrow Ukraine’s democratically elected President started, on 20 November 2013.*

*"The American scholar Gordon M. Hahn has specialized in studying the
evidence regarding whom the actual snipers were who committed the murders,
but he focuses only on domestic Ukrainian snipers and ignores the foreign
ones, who had been hired by the U.S. regime indirectly through Georgian,

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.

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.

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.

    Feb 17 Update - Seasonal Flu Remedies

    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

    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.

    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.

    August 1 Report

    "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. I once took vitamin D for 3 months from january to march 2017. I just resumed vitamin D10000 i.u last week. 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.

    Email on a hybrid (integrative) therapy for HIV received from a spanish reader on May 25, 2017 Note - We corrected some of the spelling errors in this email

    "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. "

    * Editors Note: Triumeq is a combination of abacavir, dolutegravir, and lamivudine. Go to drugs.com to read the side effects. They are of significant concern if you have liver disease. Alex is getting some liver protection from the daily use of black seeds. Also, Milk Thistle and natural selenium found in Brazil nuts would add additional help to protect the liver and will also help support normal immune function.

    Additional Note: "Mary from Brooklyn" update lab tests are awaited. Out last newsletter focused almost entirely on her remarkable recovery story. She indicated in February that she would have new lab tests in May. We had a message from her left on our phone around May 15th asking what my schedule was this summer and indicating that she would like to come to Wisconsin to visit me. She apologized for not answering my repeated phone calls and said she did not have the privacy to speak to me about her condition at the time. What are her latest lab results? Is the HIV virus still in remission or has it returned? We will provide an update if and when we can speak to her and see a copy of her lab tests.

    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.

    References:
    1. Analysis: report of drugs side effects increase fivefold in 12 years Milwaukee Journal Sentinel March 18, 2017 by Matthew Wynn and John Fauber of MedPage.
    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. I did some searches in the medical libraries on the products they black listed in their press release. First, here are a list of the 14 companies to whom their letters were directed:

    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.

    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.

    10. Vitamin D3. 10,000 i.u. daily. This Brand used was made by Solgar. By August, she stopped using the Vitamin D2 that her doctor prescribed and bought her own Vitamin D3 OTC. She took 3 capsules twice a week.

    [The Solgar brand of vitamin D 3 is dissolved in a base of oil that helps with the assimilation. A nutritionist I spoke with recently advised only using the D3 form dissolved in oil. She stated that the dry Vitamin D3 in powder form is poorly assimilated]

    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, the vitamin D3, 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.

    [Note: Mary and I both agree that the high dose of Vitamin D3 caused a rapid spike in the CD4/CD8 ratio. Based on my latest interview I did in February 2017, I learned that Mary did not take 10,000 i.u. daily as I reported earlier, but rather took 3 capsules of D3 each with 10,000. i.u. twice a week about 3 days apart. Total weekly intake of D3 was about 60,000 i.u. By June 2016, her serum levels of vitamin D3 were 88 ng.ml, and her CD4/ CD8 ratio was 2.5]

    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.

    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 realFeb 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 - Vitamin D in high doses may
    have helped to remove the last of the HIV viruses

    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 10,000 i.u. of vitamin D3 daily, 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

    Did high doses of vitamin D flush out the remaining viruses?

    Without diminishing the importance of the HIV drug Complera, the Black seed powder and the beet root juice she used in this combination protocol, her lab results indicated that she had increased her blood serum levels of vitamin D to 88 ng/ml.

    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."

    "She has continued taking 10,000 i.u. of vitamin D3 daily, and her latest vitamin D serum level was 88 ng/ml. This is on a scale of 30 to 100 so her vitamin D levels are more than adequate. Did her high vitamin D levels have more to do with her sero-conversion than her previous use of black seed powder or had she already sero-converted by Dec. of 2015 and did not know it because no antibody test was taken in December?"

    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.

    My own thinking about this is that for the millions who are taking prescribed meds is to continue taking them and add one 10,000 i.u. daily of vitamin D3 to your routine. After doing this for 2 months or longer, ask your doctor for a serum test for vitamin D. You will definitely need a test result higher than the minimum of 30 ng/ml. You will want to increase the serum levels to a range of 80 to 120 ng/ml for maximum immune regulation results.

    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 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.

    [My own theory is that long term HIVers who have been taking prescribed meds for many years and are PCR negative, is that, if they raise their blood serum Vitamin D to the upper quadrant (80 to 120 ng/ml) that they might just flush out the last of the remaining HIV viruses and effect an outright "cure" through total viral eradication. It would take vitamin D supplementation in the range of 10,000 to 20,000 i.u daily to attain these serum levels. While most doctors will oppose taking vitamin D3 at these levels, there is no published research that this supplemental level in adults has harmed anyone.

    See a book by Jeff T Bowles titled "Vitamin D3 Miracle." In his book Jeff discusses his experiences taking doses of vitamin D3 up to 100,000 i.u daily and reports not only no adverse effects but amazing cures for many of his life long health conditions. ]

    Jan 26 Update

    A reprint from FDA Law Blog

    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.

    Jan 16 update

    U.S. V. LeBeau update

    Jan 9th 2017 - In a surprise development, The Dept of Justice (DOJ) filed with the U.S. Supreme court a notice of waiver of their right to reply to my Petition for Certiorari. No reason was given. Having spent the past 6 years arguing in brief after brief the FDA position, this silent response is stunning. Normally when a plaintiff files a complaint in court, the opposing party denies the complaint and pleads "not guilty."

    When no response is given, it could mean that the respondent, in his case the attorneys for the DOJ have had a change of heart and now agree that I have legitimate issues to present to the Supreme Court. By not responding, they have left the door wide open for the Supreme Court to certify the 4 questions I presented in my petition.

    The next step is for the justices on the Supreme Court to read my petition and decide if they want to review the case. Since I am seeking to have the court reverse nearly 100 years of incorrectly defining what a drug is and substantially narrowing the definition of a drug to be based on the "composition" of the substance, and not what is written about it in labeling (a first amendment issue). The ultimate decision, whatever it is, will be a substantial and far reaching.

    Until this legal proceeding runs its course, all I ask for is one prayer a day for the justices to be given the wisdom to make a decision that is consistent with both the rule of law and the best interests of the American people.

    If certiorari is granted, it means that this case has immediate national importance and falls in the 1% of the 7000 cases submitted annually that is reviewed by the Supreme Court. [In a typical year, opinions are written in about 70 cases; the rest are denied and no explanation is offered] If certiorari is denied, all the efforts I placed in this case for the past 6 years will have been for naught.

    Copies of the latest Journal of Immunity (Vol 14, No 4) have been mailed to President elect Trump and 15 of his cabinet appointees in 16 separate USPS Flat rate priority envelopes within the past 5 days. I hope to get a response to my proposals for a direct government health care program that utilizes non-patented and natural holistic remedies. Readers can help individually by printing out copies of this latest newsletter v14 n4) and mailing them to their elected leaders and ask for their support for this low cost health care plan to replace Obamacare.

    Jan 18, Breaking News - an analyst at the U.S. Supreme Court told me earlier today that a conference to discuss my case was scheduled for Feb 17, next month. Since this is a Friday, I don't expect any news until Monday Feb 20th. I hope to find out then if certification of the case will be approved or denied.

    In other news, within the past 4 days, I mailed out 96 copies of the latest newsletter Vol 14 No 4 to Donald Trump, plus 14 of his cabinet appointees and selected members of Congress with my ideas on how to replace Obamacare and have the government through the VA provide low cost health care directly to Veterans, indigent Americans, and persons with pre-existing conditions. So far, there has been no reply, but with the Pres. inaugural just hours from now, it is possible no one has opened the mail yet. All the newsletters were sent USPS in Priority Flat Rate envelopes with a cover letter. Conrad

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.

    Dec 27/28th Post Christmas Message
    Aron (Patient R releases his lab tests)

    .

    First, I want to wish everyone reading these messages a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. One day after posting Aron's (patient R) labs on Dec 16, our computer (an Imac) malfunctioned and had be be sent to the repair shop. Yesterday, it came back fixed for now.

    The Dec 16 News Bulletin is n the good news of black seed powder mono-therapy but it is only one case. There are 3 sets of tests - one in January while he was still using hiv meds; one in July when he stopped using the HIV meds. The July tests are his baseline. He started using the black seed powder capsules on August 9th and the December 10th test encompasses a 4 month period. Besides significantly increasing the CD4 count and reducing the viral load, a reading of the lab test shows several blood parameters moving from High or Low positions to within normal reference ranges. Some of these lab results indicate improved liver function.

    Dec 28 email received from a reader:

    Conrad, I started the black seed regimen in June. I had some trouble finding the correct dosage (the clinical trials are vague), but I eventually settled on 2T of NS ground into a powder, with honey and a little bit of water (to make it edible). I saw a couple of big changes. All lymph node swellings disappeared within three to four weeks (except for one that appears to be a solid tumor and will be removed). Also, the white toenail discolorations disappeared after a few weeks. I haven't had any blood work done in that time period. I plan to get my blood drawn after the holidays. I'm sure my doc will have a fit when he finds out what I've been doing, unless, of course, the test results are good. I am 46 years old with few medical problems. I do not smoke at all, and drink alcohol rarely. My diet isn't the greatest, but I'm not obese. Generally, I'm healthy (perfect blood pressure, etc). So my little miniature clinical trial might be of some use here. R.D. (name and email address withheld per request)

    Case report M: Black Seed oil not as effective as the whole seed powder

    An email from Europe by a HIV+ female (Case M) on Dec 27 indicates that Black Seed oil was used as a monotherapy for 13 weeks (from Sep to Dec 20th). She wrote: "As you can see after 3 months of the oil of Nigella Sativa, the results were not as good as Arons. Next week we intend to do a ARN (viral load count) and lipid profile again. All the best." M (name, email and actual lab results withheld per her request). She indicated she used from 30 ml to 50 ml daily (about 2 or 3 tablespoons of the black seed oil). From a cost analysis alone, the oil was more expensive ($200 to $300 per month) than the black seed powder capsules Aron used that cost less than $30 a month. More over the results were not as good. For example, the CD4 count declined about 20% during this period. However the oil had some benefits - the HDL cholesterol increased, total lipids decreased, CD8 decreased and triglycerides decreased. We will await to see what happened to the viral load.

    This is a single case report and we should not draw general conclusions from one report. Based on results indicated in this email, it could be that the non oily part (the black pigments) of the black seed (black also called Black Cumin) is where most of the therapeutic value exists. In the original Nigeria test case, it was the whole black seed powder, not the oil, that led to a cure of HIV in a 6 month period.

    What about Patient P from Illinois whose husband used the oil of Nigella Sativa this past August? In this case that we reported in the Journal of Immunity Vol 12, No 3, an Illinois man used 6 capsules of Black Seed oil daily along with a high dose of prednisone and antibiotics after an initial diagnosis of AIDS and pneumonia in August, 2014. In a lab test taken just before starting HIV meds, his viral load dropped from 174K to 100K while his CD4 count remained the same at 54. At the time, we thought the black seed oil was responsible for the viral load drop but we failed to consider the anti-viral properties of prednisone. More than a decade ago, published on this website are both case reports and clinical studies that demonstrated the efficacy of using prednisone to treat HIV. Example: Prednisone was used by Mark Milano for 15 years without using any AIDS meds to control his HIV. Thus, in rethinking what happened to Patient P, the prednisone may have had a greater role than the black seed oil in reducing the viral load. We have no new updates from Patient P but will contact them in the near future for more information.

    Editor's comment: [I have used both the black seed oil and the powder at different times. The powder proved better than the oil at reducing my cravings for sweets, and the black seed powder improved the skin appearance in my feet. Other than that, when you taste the oil vs. the powder, the powder has at least a ten fold stronger taste than the oil. If the taste and color equate with medicinal value, the whole seed powder would be a better value for your money. What concerns me about black seed oil is that it is clear and since it is pressed from whole black seed, I ask this question, where did the black go?]

    [We know that in processing cane sugar, the black in the cane sugar ends up on the blackstrap molasses and what ends up being nutrient depleted is the white sugar. Molasses is a powerhouse of nutrients. Whole black seed is a complex treasure trove of medicinal value for many health conditions. Let us not sell ourselves short by trusting black seed oil to be a good as the whole seed. The problem with many clear oils [including many cold pressed oils] is filtering. Filtering removes the cloudiness, and the color, and with it the phytonutrients. Too much processing can sometimes deplete a supplement of its original medicinal value. Conrad]

    Other news: I am still waiting for Federal Judge Charles Clevert to finish his review of my legal case with the FDA so the substantive issues can be reviewed by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. Still, there is no word when his decision will come down. Feb. 13 2015 will be 2 years since the final briefs were filed. Meanwhile, the Ebola epidemic continues to advance albeit more slowly - this could be due to the use of anti-malaria drugs and experimental remedies being tried. More news on black seed will be published soon in the last quarterly edition of the Journal of Immunity for 2014. Check this website weekly for updates.

    2015 Happy New Years!

    Dec 16 2014 News Bulletin

    Patient R's test results came in this morning and the results are an early Christmas present. The CD4 cells are up and the viral load is down significantly after 4 months of Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) monotherapy. Patient R started black seed powder monotherapy on August 9th, 2014 and continued through Dec 10, 2014. Here are the key lab numbers -

    July 23, 2014 Absolute CD4 Count was 262
    July 23 HIV-1 RNA copies 10571

    Dec 10, 2014, CD4's are now 417
    Dec 10, 2014 HIV-1 RNA copes are now 3054

    Other numbers also fell into line or moved into normal reference ranges including ALT, ALK Phos, and absolute lymphocytes. Consider that these results are remarkable coming from a person who smokes cigarettes and drinks Vodka every day. Also, there were several dosing interruptions during this period of 4 months. The original schedule was to take 2 capsules with meals 3 times a day. Patient R changed this to 3 capsules twice a day. Based on the actual amount of Black seed capsules he used, we estimate his daily average intake was 5 capsules per day. (Source: Amazing herbs - Original Formula - paid for by Keep Hope Alive)

    Today in an email he wrote: "Hello Conrad, Well, here are the results. I've only been taking the black seed and no other preventative medication for the past few months and the results here look promising. My t-cells are up and my viral load has gone down dramatically. I hope this helps with your research and I really appreciate the chance to participate in this study. Email me back when you get this :-)"

    Dec 11 update - Black seed powder update
    HIV - Patient R's lab test were finally done on Dec 10th

    Conrad LeBeau

    by Conrad LeBeau
    After using Black seed powder as a monotherapy for HIV for the past 4 months that began on August 9th, the lab tests that were originally planned for Oct 9th were delayed 4 times; they were last set for Dec 4th, 2014. This past weekend, I received an email from Patient R asking me to give him a ride to ARCW, the Aids Resource Center of Wisconsin, located here in Milwaukee, on the morning of Dec 10th for his lab test that he had rescheduled a week earlier. I accepted his request and asked that he abstain from any alcoholic beverages the night before. We spoke by phone. He said he would set his alarm clock for 7 am.

    I arrived at 8 am and he was ready to go. We drove to 810 N Plankinton Ave where the appointment was scheduled. While I sat in a lobby reading a magazine, the ARCW nurse drew several vials of his blood, and by 9 am, he was finished. On the way back to his apt, Patient R told me he had set up with ARCW to have his lab results sent directly to him by email. He told me he expects the labs to arrive either on monday (Dec 15th) or tuesday (the 16th) next week. The last labs were taken around July 18, 2014. The CD4 absolute count then was 262 and the viral load was 10, 571.

    Note: He did not meet with his doctor on Dec 10 and is setting up another appointment to do this. His doctor, who took him off all HIV meds in July to see how his immune system would handle the virus, does not yet know of his use of the black seed powder.

    Besides looking at the two most important numbers, the CD4 counts and the viral load, Keep Hope Alive will look to see if the black seed powder had a protective effect on his liver, as Patient R is admittedly a daily drinker of Vodka, and smokes daily more than pack of cigarettes. This case is not perfect but it is the only monotherapy case we are aware of at this time where black seed powder was a sole therapy for HIV based on a single case from Nigeria where the patient was apparently cured. The Nigerian researchers could not detect any HIV virus for 2 years even after the black seed powder treatment was discontinued. The goal here to duplicate the case in Nigeria. Whether or not total viral eradication of HIV will occur remains to be seen - however we will all soon find out.

    If there is anyone reading this on the worldwide web that is using black seed powder as a monotherapy for hiv or any other disease, please share your results with the world by writing to us here - we will publish them. Together, let us now pray for good news next week [not the Grinch that stole Christmas]. Stop back here on monday (after 9 pm) for the latest news and results.

    Next week I will discuss my annual fight with the seasonal flu that started this past sunday. The experts are right - this one called H3N2 is tough. I used oral hydrogen peroxide drops (7 drops of 35% H2O2) in water every 4 hours - nasty tasting stuff. I also used 5000 mg ascorbic acid in water two hours after using the H2O2, along with zinc lozenges and pleurisy root tincture - a shot glass full in a cup of hot water. I drank lots of water, sipped on low sodium organic chicken broth, got lots of rest, and monitored my temperature. I would advise any one not seeing immediate improvement with this or any combination of home remedies to go to the Emergency Room, especially children and the elderly. Pardon any typo errors - it is late and computer eyestrain affects the length of these articles.

    Micaell Thomsen reports his latest labs indicate Black seed powder combined with HIV meds increased his CD4's and improved most other immune parameters

    Nov 25, 2014
    Hello Conrad -

    I have just picked up my latest blood test from the 11. of. november since changing hiv medicine and starting Black seed the 13. of october. My printer/scanning machine is out of order, so I write the most important to you. My Viral load is still undetectable and my CD4 is raised from 630 to 770. I know we have other blood test Ref. niveau, but I hope you understand the Danish way.

    My CD3 pos is raised from 1,7 (normal 0,69-2,70) to 2,4. My CD8 pos is raised from 1,0 (normal 0,39-1,03) to 1,6 My Hemoglobin is raised from 10,0 (normal 8,3-10,5) to 10,9 (now over the ref. niveau)

    My ALAT is Down from 153 (normal 10-70) to 66 All other test is fine. But my creatinine is still a slight over ref. niveau due to the Tivicay, WHO is know to raise creatinine. But it has been up to 130 but is now Down to 116 (normal 60-105) So I must conclude, that Nigella sativa is very well tolerated with the HIV medicine, and promotes great benefits. best regards. Micaell

    Note - Contact info for Micaell Thomson, send an email to him here Note: Today Dec 4, we are in a waiting mode to hear from Patient R. Meanwhile, the latest results from Micaell who has been using black seed powder (combined with HIV meds) since Oct 13 are very encouraging. In a separate follow-up email from Micaell, he also reported that several subsets of white blood cells increased toward normal reference ranges in his latest test.

    OREGON'S GMO LABELING VOTE IN RECOUNT MODE WITH 892 VOTES SEPARATING THE TWO SIDES

    From Organic Bytes, a publication of the Organic Consumers Association is the following statement on the Nov 4th referendum on the mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods in Oregon:

    Nov 28th - With only 812 votes separating the YES and NO on 92 campaigns, Oregon’s Measure 92, an initiative to require mandatory labeling of GMOs in food products, is now in recount mode. We could still win this. And we aren’t the only ones who think so. Oregon’s KGW Channel 8 initially called the Measure 92 race for the No side. But now, long-time KGW political analyst Len Bergstein says that he believes the YES side will be victorious! That news has sent Monsanto and Big Food into overdrive. They already spent a record-shattering $20.8 million on the campaign to defeat GMO labeling in Oregon.

    You can bet they’ll dig as deep into their pockets as they have to in order to try to manipulate this recount. Right now, the YES on 92 campaign is building a team of legal experts and volunteers to ensure that every vote is counted fairly and accurately. The kind of team we need is going to cost money. That’s why we’ve pledge yet another $25,000 to the campaign, through our 501(c) 4 lobbying arm, the Organic Consumers Fund. If you’re one of the thousands of people who have already donated to pass this historic initiative in Oregon, thank you. Today, we’re asking you to protect your investment by making one last donation to help with the recount. If you haven’t yet donated to support Measure 92, now’s your chance. The YES on 92 campaign has done an incredible job so far of keeping this fight alive. The recount is our last hope—and it’s not just a stab in the dark. We have a real chance of winning this. Please donate today to fund a fair and accurate recount of the votes in Oregon on Measure 92 to label GMOs.


    Nov 20th - Black seed News Update

    Email report states Black Seed powder lowered liver enzymes

    micaell 2014-11-13 10:44 GMT+01:00 Micaell Thomsen <micaell.thomsen@gmail.com>:

    Hello Conrad - you are always welcome to post my comments at your keep hope alive website. I live in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is very simple, and here is exactly what I did:

    In September 2014, I changed some of my medicine from Sustiva/Stocrin to the new Tivicay. So my combination is now Epivir, Viread and Tivicay. For that reason, I had blood test done one month after in October 2014, that showed a raise in my liver ALAT to 152 (the normal range is 10-70). I was told about the raise in my ALAT the 13th of October 2014. The same day I was told that, I started taking the Black seed (Nigella sativa). Morning and evening I took 1½ teaspoons of the Whole Black seed (3 teaspoons total per.day). I ground the seeds in a mixer to a fine powder. I put it in a glass and mixed some fresh orange juice with it, and drank it 10-20 minutes before eating breakfast and dinner.

    I started the Black seed with a liver ALAT of 152. Because of the raise in the ALAT, my doctor at the hospital had followed it. The 20th of October my ALAT was 107. The 4th of November I also went to my local doctor who checked my ALAT. My doctor phoned me the 5th of november and told me my ALAT was now in the normal range. It was 67. The 11th of november I again had an ALAT test at the hospital, and also this time the ALAT was in the normal range like the test from the local doctor the 4th of november. The ALAT was 66 on the 11th of november. So, as you can see, my ALAT has gone down from 152 to normal range in just 22 days, from 13 October to the 4th of November. I have not had any side effect from the Black seed. I will write you when I have picked up a copy from all my blood tests next week. But in the mean time, you are welcome to post about my ALAT results. Best Regards. Micaell Thomsen

    World Health Organization (WHO) director Margaret Chan, blames "greed" as the primary reason for lack of an Ebola cure

    11/4/14 - The New York Times quoted the leader of WHO as stating that "A profit -driven industry does not invest in products for markets that cannot pay." The New York Times reported that Chan said her organization (WHO) "had long warned of the consequences of greed in drug development and of neglect in public health." According to the WHO latest figures, 13,567 people have been infected with the Ebola virus and 4,951 have died. These numbers change by the day and continue to increase.

    Today , Nov 11, New York doctors celebrate the cure and release of the latest Ebola doctor who has recovered and state the United States is now Ebola free. However, a CNN commentator cautiously added - "that could change as early as this afternoon with the next airplane flight from West Africa." Last week on PBS News hour, a WHO official told Gwen Ifill that about 150 people travel to the U.S. each day from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the three countries most affected by the Ebola crisis. It is only a matter of time, and not that much time either, before new cases will arise here in the United States.

    The Big Drug companies and their marketing allies in the U.S. government including FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, Anthony Fauci of the NIAID and Thomas Frieden of the CDC are not doing studies with the low cost generic drug Lamivudine that Dr. Logan found reduced the death rate from Ebola in his patients by 93%; this low cost generic antiviral drug won't make the billions that can only be made with a new patented drug. Hence, a conspiracy of silence and neglect exists about low cost treatments for all diseases from Ebola to Cancer to AIDS to heart disease and everything else in between. It is a failure of leadership in our own government All three branches of government share some blame for incompetence, corruption, and a lack of moral courage.

    The CDC will recommend the use of ozone and hydrogen peroxide vapors on its website (cdc.gov) to disinfect medical laboratories that may be infected with biohazards including Ebola but won't lift a finger to study how to use ozone or hydrogen peroxide directly to treat patients infected with this and other biohazards; nor will the FDA or Fauci's NIAID lead any effort to find low-cost treatments for Ebola or any other disease. Turning human tragedy into profit is not only bad government policy, it is actually a form of genocide.

    Nov 11, 2014 - Black seed for HIV

    Patient P from Illinois - Nov 7th lab tests for a mixed combination protocol. In this test case that we reported on earlier, Black seed oil was used - the latest lab results are: CD4 105 (up from 54 in Sept) and the PCR is 500, down from 100,000. These test results are from a combination of 6 black seed oil capsules taken daily plus antiviral meds including Reyataz and Truvada plus Bactrim to prevent PCP. While the black seed oil has been in use since August, the antiviral HIV meds have been is use only for the past five weeks (starting around Oct 1st) , according to his wife. This week the doctor added 100 mg of Norvir to the protocol to boost his recovery.

    Patient P told me he plans to continue to use both the black seed oil and the prescribed meds until his viral load is undetectable and his CD4 count is over 600, then to start doing monthly HIV tests to see is he sero-converts back to a negative status. We will continue to follow this case, and any new case reports as they are conveyed to us.

    For public or private comments or questions, send me an email. Thanks Conrad


    Liberian doctor uses Lamivudine, an HIV drug to cure Ebola

    The following is reprinted from the Daily Observer in Monrovia, Liberia. This story was also reported on CNN by Elizabeth Cohen, Senior Medical Correspondent on September 29, 2014. Since then the mass media has been silent on this treatment

    "HOME / NEWS / DR. LOGAN WANTS SUPPORT FOR HIS EBOLA TREATMENT PROTOCOL’, WHICH HE HAS USED TO ‘CURE’ 10 EBOLA PATIENTS"

    Dr Logan

    Dr. Logan presents a package to one of the Ebola survivors

    Dr. Logan seeks support for his Ebola treatment protocol’

    .

    .

    "10/05/2014 - By: Alvin Worzi
    "The County Health Officer and Co-chair on the Bomi County Taskforce, Dr. G. Gorbee Logan, has told the Daily Observer that he needs more support for his experiment, which he has used to “cure” at least 10 persons who once tested positive with Ebola.

    "He, however, stressed to the Observer that it was yet too early to say that his experiment was working or works effectively against the deadly disease, which has so far killed over 2000 persons in Liberia alone. He said he determined to carry out the test on as many as 500 patients so as to validate his claim that his self-invented protocol works well against the virus.

    "Dr. Logan administered Lamivudine drug through his protocol to cure the 10 Ebola patients in Bomi County, with several others on medication in the Ebola Treatment Unit.

    "Speaking on Friday at the reunification and certification program of the Ebola disease survivors in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Dr. Logan said, the using of Lamivudine drug on affected Ebola patients was due to some similarity between the Human Immuno Virus (HIV) and the Ebola virus.

    "He explained that HIV is a single stranded ribonucleic acid virus (SS-RNA) while the Ebola virus is the same.

    According to Dr. Logan, “If this Lamivudine drug can be used to cure hepatitis and also in combination with Zidovudine to treat HIV, and the question then asked was, would this help to cure Ebola virus? When would this research and study be conducted when our people are dying? I decided to try this medication on 15 persons.”

    "According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, Lamivudine is in a class of medications called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). It works by decreasing the amount of HIV and hepatitis B in the blood. Although lamivudine does not cure HIV, it may decrease your chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer.

    "Dr. Logan continued that along the way of trying the medication on 15 patients who blood samples were tested positive at the Liberia Institute of Biomedical Research (LIBR) earlier, 10 survived and the treatment continued up to date for other patients, who still are in the ETU.

    "According to Dr. Logan, the Lamivudine drug is in the list of World Health Organization (WHO) essential drugs that is approved for use and he did not manufactured the drug.

    "He explained that only people who come for early treatment can be provided the Lamivudine drug especially from the first day of the symptoms of Ebola to the fifth day, adding that, “Not only Lamivudine drug that is needed to cure Ebola patients and anyone who comes late cannot be given the drug.”

    "According to him, blood samples of the 10 were taken and tested by all professional doctors and nurses including people from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as other international partners working in collaboration with the County Task Force in Bomi."

    The 10 persons who survived of the deadly Ebola virus disease include: Promise Galakemene, Kula Coleman, Patience Kamara, Susan K. Kamara, Bendu Kamara, Fatee Sheriff, Elizabeth Kundo, Jowel Khovoy, Tenenie Golafaley and Charles Roberts.

    Editorial - A Failure of Leadership
    by Conrad LeBeau 10/29/14

    Lamivudine is also known as Epivir or 3TC. The patents on this drug have expired so it is a low cost remedy which means there is not much profit in it for the big drug companies. Lamivudine has been used to treat hepatitis B and has long been used as part of HIV drug cocktail combinations. It has a reputation as one of the safest HIV drugs to use long term. About 12 years ago or longer, I recall a phone call from a reader who combined Lamivudine with Olive leaf extract. The lady reported her viral load was reduced to zero. Since then I lost contact with her so there is no followup.

    According to experts, Lamivudine alone works effectively against HIV for a few weeks then viral resistance develops. That is why it is only used in combination therapy when treating HIV. For Ebola, viral resistance does not matter, since you only need the drug for 5 days, then you are cured.

    No one in a leadership position including Anthony Fauci who heads the NIAID has ever expressed an interest in funding research into low cost remedies for any disease. Fauci says: "follow the science." Great, but does that also mean you have to follow the money trial led by Pfizer, GSK and the other big drug companies as well? Today, there is a complete failure of leadership at the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, and NIAID to lead the way to find safe, effective, and affordable treatments, not only for Ebola, but for cancer, AIDS and other diseases as well. Employees at government agencies are suppose to represent all the people, not just the very rich and well connected. All the attention and money is always on new patentable drugs.

    There is no attention or commitment to find affordable or low cost remedies from any source, whether it be generic drugs, food based remedies, bio-oxidative, and herbal remedies as none of these can be patented. The charade continues as safe, effective and low cost remedies for major illnesses continue to be swept under the red carpet that parades, instead, new high priced drugs for every disease imaginable. The entire leadership of the Department of Health and Human Services, the NIH, the FDA, the NIAID and CDC should all be fired. They are in the back pockets of the big drug companies.

    Updated instructions on making the Hawthorn leaf decoction for Ebola and other conditions (Oct 20, 2014)

    These instructions are being updated because several variations of the original method of making the hawthorn extract have been tried and some improvements have been made in the past two months.

    First you need to find a source of hawthorn leaves. I found a source of leaves and flowers at herbco.com 800-500-6148. One pound of a blend of leaves and flowers c/s (cut and sifted) was purchased for $9.00 plus shipping charges. Note: I noticed today they were sold out of the leaves and flowers. Try Google or any search engine for "hawthorn leaves" to locate other sources. A source of bulk organic hawthorn leaves, flowers and berries is Michelle Kalevik 303-322-7930.

    While the fruit is the most widely used part of the Hawthorn bush, I decided to use the leaves and flowers. After reading the instructions given to Marie Julie Jahenny by the Blessed Mother on Aug 5, 1880, on how to prepare the Hawthorn remedy, I am left with a few unanswered questions, they are -

    1. What quantity of Hawthorn leaves should be added to what quantity of water? Should the leaves be whole or cut? Should it be a teaspoonful of leaves per cup of water or a tablespoon of leaves per cup or some other measurement?

    2. After adding the Hawthorn leaves to the boiling water, should the mixture continue to A. be boiled for the next 14 minutes, B. be simmered for 14 minutes, or should the C. the heat be shut off while leaving the lid on for 14 minutes before straining and drinking the remedy?

    3. Will the method vary depending on the heat source - gas stove, electrical or wood stove?

    My first attempts at making the Hawthorn leaf decoction

    Decoction: Decoctions are usually made by boiling a herb or food from 5 to 20 minutes. The temperature can reach 212 degrees fahrenheit equals 100 degrees Celsius. In my first attempt, I placed a full cup of water into a pan and brought it to a boil. Then I added one heaping tablespoon of the dried hawthorn leaves and flowers (c/s) into the boiling water. I stirred it and boiled it for one minute, then reduced the heat and placed a cover over the pot and simmered it for 14 minutes. I did not want to cook it on high heat for the 14 minutes as excess heat could reduce the medicinal value of some of the ingredients in the remedy. I removed the pot from the stove and left the cover on to cool it for about 10 minutes. I then strained the mixture to remove the cooked leaves and flowers. The color of the decoction was brown although partially cloudy with sediment from the cooked leaves. It was mild in flavor.

    Infusion: The infusion method is usually used to make a tea. Infusion temperatures may start at the boiling temperature of water but quickly drop to below 160 degrees F and down further to 120 degrees F which is basically warm water. In another experiment I placed the hawthorn leaves in a cup of boiling water, turned off the heat, and let it alone for 10 or 15 minutes. I tried this and found that the resulting tea was lukewarm, light in color and had little flavor, indicating that much of the medicinal ingredients were still inside the leaves and flowers. I concluded that an infusion would not make a good remedy. After discussing both methods with a trained Herbalist, she stated that it would take a higher temperature of the leaves in the water to draw out the medicinal properties of the hawthorn leaf. She suggested combining the Decoction and Infusion methods.

    My latest method of making a Hawthorn decoction doubles the herb and water used and simmers the mixture rather than boiling or steeping it

    The Hawthorn extract I currently make is based on the following method: I use a 1.5 qt (1 and a half quart) stainless steel pot with a lid. I place two cups of water plus 1/4 cup of water into the pot and bring it to a rolling boil. I then add 2 heaping tablespoons of the cut hawthorn leaves and flowers to the boiling water and stir it while shutting off the heat for one minute. I then place the pot with the lid on the smallest burner on the stove with the lowest possible setting. I set the timer for 14 minutes. [You may add some Hawthorn berries to the mixture if you want, but this is not necessary.] At the 3 or 4 minute interval, I lift the lid to check on what it is doing. It should be simmering, not bubbling at a full boil.

    By simmering, I mean there should be some churning motion to part (not all) of the hawthorn leaves and water in the pot. Most of the herb and water mixture should be motionless or just slightly moving. The temperature of the simmering mixture can be as low as 160 degrees F but less than the boiling temperature of the mixture. The ideal range is more than 160 degrees F but less than 190 degrees F. The resulting decoction I made was a deep golden brown color that looked like a clear maple syrup. The liquid also had a slight thickness (viscosity) and very smooth taste. Its physical effects are noticeable as a diuretic, and in promoting restful sleep. [Do not add any honey, sugar or other herbs to this remedy. Use it by itself.]

    If you use an electric or wood stove, you will need to move or adjust the temperature to simmer (not boil) the mixture for the 14 minutes needed to make the remedy.

    After 14 minutes the resulting decoction is strained and divided into two servings. If only one person is using the remedy, one cup is immediately consumed and the other is set aside or refrigerated for later use. In using the remedy for one Ebola patient, the entire day's remedy can be made at one time using 3 and 1/2 cups of water with 3 heaping tablespoons of the cut leaves and flowers. The resulting extract is divided into 3 portions that are taken about 5 hours apart. Note that this remedy must be taken early in the disease process or it may not work.

    What about using Hawthorn extracts and capsules?

    Why not take hawthorn berry capsules? The use of capsules is an experimental possibility and could be considered if the capsules primarily contain extracts of the leaves and flowers. However, not knowing the details of how the product is made leaves open questions about its efficacy. An experimental dose for an adult would be 3 capsules 3 times a day. Personally, I prefer making my own extract on the kitchen stove. At least you know what you got.

    [I have found that one cup of this Hawthorn decoction taken before bedtime helps promote longer, deeper, and more restful sleep.]

    I might add at this juncture that the use of the Hawthorn leaf decoction for treating Ebola is an act of faith as there is no scientific research (yet) that would support its use for treating Ebola. [My own theory is that the Hawthorn leaf decoction increases the availability of oxygen to the heart, and other body organs, and tissues.]

    October 7. 2014. The latest issue of the Journal of Immunity covers the rapidly emerging Ebola epidemic, how the virus is transmitted by direct touch or through the air, its symptoms, and treatment options, and an 1880 prophecy from a French mystic who received a message about this disease from the Virgin Mary nearly a century before scientists discovered it. The Virgin Mary recommended a hawthorne leaf decoction as a home remedy to stop the progression of the disease. The African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine has an article about a man who achieved a sustained seroconversion for HIV as a result of using black seed powder as a monotherapy. Two test cases are now underway- one in Wisconsin and one in Illinois in an attempt to duplicate these results - one using black seed powder and one using black seed oil. Read more here

    Oct 9, 2014 : Email to me

    Hello, I just happened upon your website. I live in Houston,Texas. As you probably already know,ebola is in Dallas, TX. I have the remedies, but I had a question. All of the symptoms do pretty much match for the plague, Marie Julie-Jahenny spoke about. I don't understand what it means that it will attack the word, the heart and spirit. I would sort of guess, the heart would be affected, but what does she mean when the word is affected? Also, how can your spirit be affected? Please email soon. I eagerly await,more information Thank you and God bless you, Selena McPhail

    Reply from Conrad LeBeau <conradlebeau@gmail.com> 12:02 PM (1 minute ago) to Therese Selena,

    The original quote was in French, and while I am a descendent of French ancestry, I did not do the translation. Marie Julie Jahenny died in 1941 and before the Ebola virus was discovered. If she were alive, she wouid be the one best qualified to answer your questions. However, prophetic revelations are not without merit because some details seem out of place or are not understood.

    My impression of those words is this - the heart is damaged first and heart failure is a primary cause of death from Ebola - (Hawthorn helps protect the heart). The disease attacks the "spirit" by a loss of "hope" that recovery is possible. [spirit refers to state of mind, not the soul] It then attacks the "word" by undermining "faith" in the "Word of God."

    One bit of information I did not mention but is significant is the date of the revelation which was August 5th, 1880. One of the visionaries at Medjugorje recently asked the Virgin Mary on what date she was born. She replied it was August 5th. By the way, the visionary asked this question on August 5th. I believe that the remedy of Hawthorn decoction was a gift from the Mother of Jesus to a future generation that would suffer the plague of this disease.

    The last secrets of Medjugorje have to due with end time chastisements that can be alleviated but not entirely eliminated with prayer and fasting. As I stated in my article, the use of Hawthorn decoction is based on faith, not science, at least, until some future scientist decides to test this remedy as an early treatment for Ebola. Read the prophetic revelation carefully. The Hawthorn remedy must be given within the first few days when symptoms appear, or it may be too late to stop progression of the disease. Conrad.


    September 29th, 2014. New Developments in the case of the FDA (U.S. Government) vs. Conrad LeBeau (Case No 10-CR-00253), U.S. Attorney Gordon Giampietro wrote a letter today to United States District Judge Charles Clevert requesting a decision in this case. Under Federal Court rules, U.S. Judge Charles Clevert is to review Magistrate Callahan's decisions and write his own opinion before it can be appealed to the 7th Circuit of Appeals in Chicago. It has now been19 months since the last legal briefs have been filed and still there is no letter indicating when a decision may be finalized. U.S. Attorney Gordon Giampietro letter is filed as Doc 104.

    The letter Doc 104 filed today is welcome news as it now places the U.S. Government in agreement with me in my earlier request (Doc 103) filed in April, 2014, to Judge Charles Clevert requesting the status of his review.

    In a nutshell, I am asking the Federal Courts to narrow the definition of what is classified as a drug to its original meaning in the FDC Act of 1906 which would exclude food and food-based dietary supplements (defined in DSHEA) from the drug definition based on speech about its intended use to prevent or mitigate disease. It would limit the definition to narcotics and the other category specified in the FDC Act of 1906. If successful, my appeal would end the FDA policy of dual classification where the FDA arbitrarily classifies a substance as both a food and a drug at the same time based solely on words or speech.

    In FDA mind-speak, it is words on labels about the intended use of a food or nutritional supplement to prevent illness that the FDA claims is criminal behavior because the words magically transform (through legal fiction) a food into an unapproved new drug, However, reality is not that words are creating drugs, but rather that the FDA is simply censoring speech. FDA's arbitrary branding of a food as a drug is not based on the composition of a food or a food-based nutritional supplement, but rather on how words are used to describe its intended uses.

    Current FDA enforcement of the FDC ACT tramples on the First Amendment, the 9th amendment right to Freedom of Choice in Medicine, and intrudes on rights reserved to the States under the 10th amendment by assuming powers not enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution. FDA even treats as criminal behavior a reference to a scientific article published at the United States National Library of Medicine. It only takes one FDA employee to disagree with a scientific article, and how it is distributed along with a food or nutritional supplement, to create an alleged violation of the FDC Act.

    This censorship of speech and the press by some employees of the FDA unabashedly violates the First Amendment rights of all Americans and does irreparable harm by depriving millions of people of life saving scientific research, opinion and information. You can read the rest of my legal arguments in the Forum link in the right column. Go to #18 for the original brief and replies.

    Next monday - the latest issue of the Journal of Immunity will be posted online. This issue focuses on new developments in growing Ebola epidemic, and new case results on the effects of black seed powder or oil in the treatment of HIV. An update on Ebola planned for today has been delayed until next monday.

    Did you know that today, September 29, each year, is a feast day in the Catholic church to celebrate the work and contributions of three archangels - Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael and Saint Michael?

    LIPITOR can cause serious side effects

    by Conrad LeBeau

    Within the past year, I have spoken with two local senior citizens, Don W. and Earl D, (both over 80 y.o.) who live in southeastern Wisconsin, and took the cholesterol lowering drug, Lipitor, and who have reported as a side effect muscle wasting and weakness.

    Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is a statin drug used by millions of people to lower the bad LDL cholesterol and increase the good HDL cholesterol. Drugs.com reports about 2% of the people have side effects. However, the side effects of Lipitor and most prescription drugs are vastly under-reported as doctors rarely discuss adverse effects with their patients. Patients who develop new symptoms are left to guess whether or not this drug or that drug is the cause and whether the symptoms indicate that some new health problem is emerging. It is a fact that one drug alone can have dozens of side effects. It is not uncommon for some drugs to have 50 or more side effects. Adverse effects can occur immediately or after several months or years.

    A long list of the many side effects that may be caused by Lipitor are available from drugs.com. Read the adverse effects and the rest of the article here. [This includes a list of 12 foods and supplements that will improve your heart and circulatory health.]


    An HIV patient in Milwaukee began using Black Seed powder (sometimes called Black Cumin) on Aug 9th, 2014, in an attempt to duplicate the results published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2013.

    The article was posted on this website on 8/3/14 (See link below).

    Milwaukee, WI - On August 9th, 2014, Patient R, a caucasian male began taking 2 capsules of Black Seed powder with meals three times a day. The local experiment is based on a case study of 4 years duration done in Nigeria. The first 6 months of the Nigerian study involved the use on Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) as a monotherapy for HIV. Local testing in Milwaukee and emails from the author, Dr Onifade, led to the initial observation that about 3000 mg of black seed powder was consumed daily in the Nigerian test case. The Nigerian patient had restoration of normal CD4 helper cell counts and a consistent non-detectable hiv viral load for more than 2 years after the treatment was discontinued. Equally surprising was a consistent non-detectable antibody test for HIV that began in the 6th month of treatment. At that time, the treatment was discontinued and two years hence, the HIV virus remains non-detectable and the patient has a fully restored CD4 cell count.

    The difference between the Nigerian case and the current ongoing Milwaukee test case is that no honey was added to the Black Seed powder and the dose was divided into 3 portions taken with meals 3 times a day. Like the Nigerian case, no pharmaceutical anti-virals for HIV are being used while the Black Seed powder study is underway. The baseline CD4 count and PCR viral load test was taken in July, 3 weeks before starting the Black Seed protocol - Patient R's baseline labs are an absolute CD4 count of 262 and an HIV viral load of 10,571.

    The first test results after using the Black Seed powder (in capsule form) will occur sometime next month in October (about 60 day after starting the herbal remedy), and the results will be published on this website.

    Note: This local experiment is possible because patient R's doctor took him off all HIV antiviral drugs due to adverse side effects; the doctor is currently monitoring his viral load and immune status every 3 months while he is on this "drug holiday." Patient R plans to inform his doctor at their next meeting in October on his use of Black Seed powder at the same time blood is drawn for new labs tests. Anyone reading this report who has questions or wants more specific details on what patient R is doing can email me. Write "Black Seed" in the subject line.


    from the archives of the Alliance for Human Research Protection - America's Healthcare Crisis--7 Scientists Quit Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas

    The Associated Press reports that "at least seven scientists resigned in protest from an embattled Cancer Prevention Research Institute in Texas (CPRIT) that was backed by Governor Rick Perry and Lance Armstrong. The scientists, among them Nobel laureates, Dr. Phillip Sharp, and CPRIT's chief scientific officer, Dr. Alfred Gilman who resigned in protest after the institute approved a $20 million grant for an incubator project at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston without scientific review of the merit of the project.

    Dr. Gilman told colleagues in e-mails that he was trying to prevent misuse of taxpayer dollars and funding decisions based on political considerations. The scientists object to the politically driven agenda that puts commercial interest before science. CPRIT has received $3 billion in taxpayer money. Dr. Brian Dynlacht, another scientist who is leaving, warned that the agency was headed down a path of systematic abuses. It is worth rmembering that Gov. Perry has shown his predilection for commercially influenced policies.

    Gov. Perry had instituted with lightening speed, a mandatory HPV vaccination policy that would have forced school girls to expose their young innocent bodies to Merck's controversial vaccine. It was public uproar about the commercial ties that underpinned the mandatory policy that led the legislature to overturn it.

    As we have often decried in our various Infomails, the scientific foundation of medicine and America's medical policies have been corrupted by political and commercial forces that undermine both the integrity of medical science and the therapeutic raison d'etre of medicine.

    Americans suffer from commercially driven healthcare policies whose corporate beneficiaries have denigraded safety and respect for individual human lives in favor of high volume, mega profits. As a result. Americans' health status has declined compared to citizens in the rest of the industrialized nations of the world.

    Ebola - Symptoms, Transmission, Treatments and Prophecy

    August 12, 2014
    Conrad LeBeau

    The Ebola virus derived its name from a river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), in Africa, where it was first recognized. (1) There are 4 subtypes of Ebola virus, three of which can infect humans. The virus is believed to have originated in the tropical jungles of Africa and may have an animal host (fruit bats and monkeys) for its origin. Ebola belongs to a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic viruses. Hemorrhagic virus are known to cause bleeding and may cause death by excess bleeding.

    Other types of Hemorrhagic viruses

    On March 1, 1952, an article in the British Medical Journal discussed an epidemic of a hemorrhagic virus in Korea known as "Songo Fever" where it attacked United Nations forces in Korea. In 1939, the Japanese reported the same disease and called it "Kokka" disease. The British Medical Journal said the origin of this disease was thought to be a mite that was transmitted by a field mouse. Symptoms include fever, rash, myalgia, and albuminuria that lasts about 7 days. In severe cases there may be haemoptysis, haematemesis, haematuria, and melaena. The Japanese report the fatality rate at 13%. It is reported that antibiotics did not work.

    Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are of animal and human origin and may be caused by RNA viruses including Arenaviridae, Filoviridae, Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, and Rhabdoviridae. "All types of VHF are characterized by fever and bleeding disorders and all can progress to high fever, shock and death in many cases." (2)

    Wikipedia also reports:

    "Signs and symptoms of VHFs include (by definition) fever and increased susceptibility to bleeding (bleeding diathesis). Manifestations of VHF often also include flushing of the face and chest, small red or purple spots (petechiae), frank bleeding, swelling caused by edema, low blood pressure (hypotension), and shock. Malaise, muscle pain (myalgia), headache, vomiting, and diarrhea occur frequently. The severity of symptoms varies with the type of virus, with the “VHF syndrome” (capillary leak, bleeding diathesis, and circulatory compromise leading to shock) appearing in a majority of patients with filovirus hemorrhagic fevers (e.g., Ebola and Marburg), CCHF, and the South American hemorrhagic fevers, but in a small minority of patients with dengue, RVF, and Lassa fever."

    The Ebola outbreak currently affects Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Ebola was first identified in 1976 and initially affected the Congo and Sudan. To make the diagnosis, malaria, cholera, typhoid fever, and other viral hemorrhagic disease must be excluded, The mortality rate of Ebola is from 50 to 90%. Recently the CDC reported that the incubation rate is from 8 to 21 days.

    Published reports on symptoms of Ebola.

    First symptoms (1, 2, 3) are -

    1. fever, sore throat, muscle pains and headaches quickly followed by

    2. nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, a red rash may cover part or all of the body, leading to

    3. decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys and bleeding from multiple body parts.

    4. advanced symptoms - tongue and mouth turn red, skin turns red, whites of eyes turn red, yellowing of the skin and red areas at the same time, bleeding from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, rectum, vagina and penis. Where the virus was not treated, the skin turns black looking like severe burns.

    How this Virus is spread

    Direct contact with a patients bodily fluids. This not only includes touching a patient, but touching any clothes or objects they have touched or handled. Touching a door knob that an infected patient grasped could pass on the infection. Unlike HIV that requires body to body transfer of fluids, Ebola is spread easily. One person got Ebola by stealing and using a cell phone from a deceased victim. The cell phone had Ebola virions on it and passed it on to the user who then developed the disease. Thus, door knobs, water fountains, any public place could provide contact with a contaminated surface. How about a table and chairs? Public restrooms? Public swimming pools and recreation areas?

    Airborne Transmission of the Ebola virus

    While in the wild, there is no evidence of airborne transmission of Ebola, the news media reports that Ebola is not transmitted through the air. However, the media does this while offering no explanation why several doctors who are expertly trained not to pick up the Ebola or other infections are, in fact, coming down with the illness. The only obvious source of transmission was the air. Possibly, an Ebola patient could transmit the virus through the air just by talking. An unexpected cough or clearing of the throat could easily spill thousands of Ebola virions into the air. Don't believe CNN and other media outlets that continuously repeat the statement that Ebola is not airborne. One infected person on an international airplane could, by coughing and hacking, spread the Ebola virus to everyone else on the plane. No major city anywhere on this planet is even slightly prepared on how to handle an Ebola outbreak.

    August 1, 2014, naturalnews.com reported the following:

    In fact, a 2012 BBC article entitled "Growing concerns over 'in the air' transmission of Ebola" states: (3) Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised. Read more here:

    Nigella Sativa (aka Black Cumin) induced a sustained sero-conversion in an HIV patient

    This study was published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (2013) 10(5):332-335. The authors are Abdulfatah Adekunle Onifade, Andrew Paul Jewell & Waheed Adeola Adedeji. The email address to reach the author is abdufattah_sa@yahoo.com

    Immunology unit, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.

    Black Seed (Nigella sativa) is also known as Black Seed, Kalonji and Haba Al-Barakah. The medicinal uses of Black Seed have been written about in both Islamic and Christian literature for thousands of years. Black seed is used as a spice in Mexican, Spanish, Indian, and Asian cooking.

    This study was brought to my attention by a reader who recently emailed me a link to this article. The abstract states the following:

    Abstract Nigella sativa had been documented to possess many therapeutic functions in medicine but the least expected is sero-conversion in HIV infection which is very rare despite extensive therapy with highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). This case presentation is to highlight the complete recovery and sero-conversion of adult HIV patient after treatment with Nigella sativa concoction for the period of six months.

    The patient presented to the herbal therapist with history of chronic fever, diarrhea, weight loss and multiple pruritic lesions of 3 months duration. Examination revealed moderate weight loss, and the laboratory tests of ELISA and Western blot (new blot 1 & 2) confirmed sero-positivity to HIV infection with pre-treatment viral (HIV-RNA) load of 27,000 copies/ml and CD4 count of 250 cells/ mm3 respectively. The patient was commenced on Nigella sativa concoction 10mls twice daily for 6 months.. He was contacted daily to monitor side-effects and drug efficacy. Fever, diarrhea and multiple pruritic lesions disappeared on 5th, 7th and 20th day respectively on Nigella sativa therapy. The CD4 count decreased to 160 cells/ mm3

    Repeated EIA and Western blot tests on 187th day on Nigella sativa therapy was sero-negative. The post therapy CD4 count was 650cells/ mm3 with undetectable viral (HIV-RNA) load. Several repeats of the HIV tests remained sero- negative, aviraemia and normal CD4 count since 24 months without herbal therapy. This case report reflects the fact that there are possible therapeutic agents in Nigella sativa that may effectively control HIV infection.

    The full article which I obtained discusses a 46 year old man who had fever and diarrhea started treatment with a herbalist in August of 2009. He was monitored daily. The only treatment the patient used was the Nigella Sativa and honey mixture (60% Nigella sativa and 40% honey). He used no prescribed drugs. He started with a viral load of 27000 and a CD4 count of 250. Within the first 20 days of treatment, all his symptoms had disappeared.

    At the end of the first month, his viral load dropped to 1000 and his CD4 count declined to 160. At the end of the second month, his viral load was less than 50 copies and his CD4 count increased to 190. At the end of the 3rd month, his viral load was non-detectable and his CD4 count was 270.

    For the first 5 months, his Elisa and Western Blot test were positive for HIV. At the end of the 6 month his CD4 count had increased to 650 and for the first time his antibody test was negative.

    His herbal treatment was discontinued after 6 months. After 12 months, his CD4 counts were at 840 and his antibody test was still negative. At the 47th month, his CD4 count was 880, his viral load was nondetectable and his Elisa and Western Blot were still negative. To me it appears this patient was cured of AIDS with 6 months use of Nigella sativa.

    This was a single case, well documented, and with impressive results. However, there are some unanswered questions and I emailed them to the authors earlier today. They are.

    1. Was the mixture of 40% honey and 60% Nigella sativa based on volume or the weight or each ingredient?

    2. Since 10 ml (about 2 teaspoons) was used twice a day, was the mixture made of ground Nigella Sativa seed mixed with honey or the Nigella sativa oil (Black seed oil) mixed with honey?


    Reply received August 5th from:

    abdulfatai adekunle onifade 10:32 AM (1 hour ago) to me

    "It is based on volume. Honey is to make it easir for nigella sativa seed. Seed is the most preferred. Thank you" Dr AA ONIFADE


    The authors concluded their article with this statement:

    It was concluded that the sustained sero-conversion induced by Nigella sativa concoction in this HIV patient means that all HIV cells at all stages in infected cells in the body must have been lysed. Therefore, there is need to further study more HIV patients on Nigella sativa therapy and its virucidal effect on this pandemic virus.

    Hillary Clinton ignores the poisoning of America's food supply by Monsanto's GMO corn and soybeans as she accepts $225,000 in speaking fees before a biotechnology convention in San Diego.

    Fooddemocracynow.org reported that in her recent speech in San Diego "Clinton went on to say that she supports "[GMO] seeds and products that have a proven track record." In particular, she acknowledged the type of drought-resistant seeds that she touted during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. During her speech, which took place at the San Diego Convention Center, some Americans who know the truth about GMOs' "track record" protested outside; they noted that at least 26 countries have banned GMOs from their agricultural production and food marketplaces.

    Note: Drought resistant corn and soybeans is not what people are protesting about - it is the Bt pesticide and herbicides from GMO corn and soy that have contaminated our food supply. I guess Hillary is just like any other professional politican - accept the cash and ignore the science that gets in the way of generous campaign contributions. Why doesn't she and her counterparts in the Wall St Wing of the Republican party just put a "For Sale" sign on their back? Both political parties have a Wall St wing that needs clipping.

    The following article and petition is by Katherine Paul of the Organic Consumers Association -To be delivered to Hillary Clinton-

    Hillary Clinton could be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Do we really want someone in the White House who protects Monsanto's profits at the expense of public health? Scientists, medical professionals and climate experts warn us that a food and agriculture system built around poisons like Monsanto's Roundup and Dow's 2,4-D, a system that promotes soy and corn monocultures instead of crop diversity, is unhealthy for humans and the environment. Genetically engineered agriculture has failed. It has created superweeds that require increasingly toxic poisons, and those poisons are showing up in the blood, urine and breast milk of humans.

    The United Nations last year issued a report entitled "Before It's Too Late," stating that not only will genetically engineered crops not feed the world, as the biotech industry claims, but they are a huge contributor to global warming. Polls show that 93% of Americans want GMO labeling laws. Yet politicians like Hillary Clinton, whose ties to the biotech industry run deep, continue to pander to Monsanto. Even Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who claims that he is pro-states' rights, has said he would not defend states' rights to label GMOs.

    The next leader of the U.S. needs to take a stand against huge corporations that are devastating the environment and human health. If Hillary Clinton is not that leader, consumers will look to candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has a proven track record of supporting states' rights to label GMOs, and the transition to organic, sustainable, regenerative agriculture.

    GLUTATHIONE  –  A  LIFE  SUSTAINING  MOLECULE    

    Ron Peters MD

    Your  life  depends  on  a  very  small  molecule  called  glutathione  (GSH)  that  is  found  in  every  cell  of  your  body.    It  is   made  of  three  amino  acids  and  it  serves  three  life  sustaining  functions:

    1. Glutathione is the most  important  and  abundant  antioxidant  inside  all  the  cells  of  the  body,  serving  to  neutralize  free   radicals.  
    2. Essential  for  the  immune  system  to  fight  infections  and  kill  cancer  cells.
    3. Detoxifying  chemicals  and  heavy  metals,  and  removing  them  from  the  body.

    What  medical  science  knows  about  glutathione

    Intracellular  GSH  plays  a  central  role  in  the  functioning  of  all  immune  cells  and  is  required  for  T  and  B  cells   to  differentiate  into  fully  active  cells.   Glutathione  plays  a  critical  role  in  maintaining  cellular  energy  (ATP)  production  by  protecting   mitochondria  from  the  oxidative  damage  from  oxygen  metabolism,  and,  reducing  the  damaging  effects   of  mercury,  lead  and  other  heavy  metals  that  can  disturb  and  even  destroy  mitochondria.  

    The  highest  concentration  of  glutathione  is  found  in  the  liver,  making  it  critically  important  in  the   detoxification  and  elimination  of  free  radicals.  Accumulation  of  these  dangerous  compounds  can  result  in   oxidative  stress,  which  occurs  when  the  generation  of  free  radicals  in  the  body  exceeds  the  body’s  ability   to  neutralize  and  eliminate  them.

    Buyer’s Guide for Health Foods – Part 3
    (excerpts from the latest Journal of Immunity)

    Conrad LeBeau

    Acai frozen pulp – 2 to 3 ounces daily added to a fruit smoothie with 20 grams of whey protein helps burn abdominal fat. Use once a day in the morning.

    Apple Cider Vinegar – raw and organic – One teaspoon in water taken with or between meals helps with digestion and weight loss.

    Bee Pollen – contains 25% lecithin, a fat emulsifier, and is a natural source of probiotics, and trace minerals. Local bee pollen helps promote natural immunity to allergies from grass and trees. Start off with a few grains daily and gradually increase the dose.

    Bitter Melon – supports normal blood sugar levels, and liver health.

    Blackseed powder (Nigella Sativa aka Black Cumin) – Adult dose – 2 or 3 capsules twice daily. (helps with weight loss by increasing insulin sensitivity )

    Castor Oil – used topically or orally – supports white blood cells function and counts – detoxifies the liver and other organs, kills parasites. Castor oil packs with a heat pad over the liver helps to reduce hepatitis viral loads; over the lungs – clears them of most chronic infections, kills parasites, improves breathing, promotes thymus gland function when done over the upper part of the chest.

    Cayenne – helps with digestion, warms the body, combined with kelp increases body temperature, improves the action of other herbs. Daily use helps to prevent heart attacks. One teaspoon in a glass of water will stop most heart attacks and strokes in progress. Cayenne dissolves a blood clot, and unlike aspirin, will not promote bleeding.

    Note: the longer you wait to use cayenne after a stroke or heart attack, the less effective it is. See your doctor before taking cayenne if you are on blood thinners.

    Cinnamon – the spice to lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin resistance. Adult dose: 2 or 3 capsules twice daily.

    Coral Calcium - fossilized from ancient sea coral beds. A great natural source of calcium and trace minerals. Often magnesium oxide is added to create a 2 to 1 ratio of calcium to magnesium. Taken before bedtime, it promotes sleep, stronger bones and teeth, dissolves calcium spurs, helps to prevent osteoporosis.

    Curcumin with Turmeric – a powerful anti-inflammatory – reduces pain from multiple sources, used for arthritis and rheumatism.

    A local resident shares his experiences with an Oriental Medicine Doctor (O.M.D) June, 2014, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    (This article is an excerpt of the latest Journal of Immunity - now at the printers. Check back by 7/15 for the online version. )

    by John Doe

    Flu season is usually in the winter when the northern hemisphere is devoid of the sun’s virus killing UV rays. However, with days and weeks on end of rainy weather, and lack of daily sunshine, some kind of stomach flue bug began appearing locally.

    Symptoms were stomach discomfort, chest congestion, low-grade fever and aching joints. Seeking to locate a store that sold Indian meals, I happened by chance upon a store brimming with Chinese herbs, most of them with labels written in the Chinese language and unreadable to me.

    As I walked along the aisle, a Chinese man approached me and asked me if I needed help. I told him I had some kind of a cold or stomach virus and was looking for some spicy Indian meals that I could take home. He then invited me to sit down. He told me he was a doctor of oriental medicine. It was my first such encounter. Read more here


    Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers of America (GMA) sue Vermont to try to overturn its recently enacted law for GMO product labeling

    A wide range of organizations are reporting the filing of this lawsuit that was promised by the GMA and Monsanto when Vermont's Gov. Peter Shumlin signed the nations' first ever GMO labeling law on May 8, 2014.

    Support for GMO labeling laws by members of moveon.org is important and crucial as the organization has 8 million members and can generate a lot of petitions and email to state officials as well as Washington.

    The following are excerpts from an email by Anna Galland of MoveOn.org on Jun 22, 2014. - Read more here.


    June 16 - AT and T removes Wi-Fi (microwave signaling) from our modem

    modemOn March 10th, 2014, I reported in this blog that modems from AT and T, TWC, Comcast, and other internet providers area major source of microwave radiation, and equivalent to standing in front of a constantly running microwave oven or living near a cell phone tower. I verified the reading outputs with a Cornet Electrosmog Tester. Routers used for wireless connections also emit equally significant amounts of microwave radiation when actively in use.

    Today June 16, our phone line with AT and T went dead and a technician was sent out to repair it. While the old modem was rebooted and uploaded with software, the technician decided to replace it with a new one. I showed him the box lined with double aluminum foil (that I had surrounded the modem with) to block the microwave signals. With the Cornet tester, I showed him exactly how much radiation was emitted by AT and T's modem and compared it to radiation leaking from a microwave oven. Both readings were in the red zone exceeding 180mw/m2.

    He said he could disable the wireless WI-Fi signals from the modem. He made an internal adjustment to the new modem, and then entered it on my computer at AT and T's website. When the modem was turned back on, I no longer needed the aluminum box. The wireless microwave signals AKA WI-Fi was zero, just the way I like it.

    If you have a modem from any of the major internet providers (Time Warner, AT and T etc), and use ethernet or cables to connect to your various devices like printers, fax machines, etc, you can call your internet provider and have them disable the wireless signals (the Wi-Fi) signals being emitted out of the main modem so you don't need to be microwaved while you are working on your desktop computer.

    I have observed friends that use laptop computer, and 99% of the time, they stay on a desk at home when they are being used. At home or office, people using wireless laptops are in locations where it is just as easy to use a wired connection. I would also give up wireless television (Uverse), and would only using wired connections instead.

    My own theory is that the overload of high frequency energy in the form of microwave radiation is taking its toll on the human body and is especially affecting the brain, and the adrenal glands is an adverse way leading to fatigue, insomnia, and contributing to many of the diseases of civilization.

    marijuanaA poison pill (FDA approval) kills medical marijuana use in Wisconsin

    The Milwaukee Journal stated this morning (6/16/14) that a derivative of marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) used to treat seizures was approved by the State of Wisconsin, and signed by Gov. Scott Walker two months ago. In spite of this, no doctor in Wisconsin has prescribed it. The reason is that someone in the State Senate inserted the requirement for "FDA approval." This was done without understanding the legal and financial burdens created by this "poison pill" would be insurmountable. Read more here.


    VACCINE INDUCED OVERLOAD AND RELATED SERIOUS HEALTH IS BECOMING THE NORM NOT THE EXCEPTION IN US CHILDREN

    May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — A new peer reviewed paper was published in a recent issue of Molecular and Genetic Medicine (S1:025, 2014) that presents convincing evidence that the rapid increase in the number of vaccines given to US children has now created a state of immune overload in the majority, or close to the majority, of young US children and that this is being manifested by related health issues including epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and autism. The new paper is authored by immunologist J. Bart Classen, MD.

    "We have been publishing for years that vaccines are causing an epidemic of inflammatory diseases including diabetes, obesity and autism. However the number of vaccines given to children has continued to rise to a point where we have reached a state of immune overload in roughly the majority of young US children. The new paper reviews the evidence of immune overload and the plethora of different health effects the children are developing because of the immune overload," says Dr. J. Bart Classen, MD.

    Dr. Classen's research indicates that the large number of vaccines given to patients is leading to an epidemic of chronic inflammation resulting in epidemics of autoimmune diseases, allergies, and a comprehensive inhibitory response manifesting as obesity and metabolic syndrome.

    "The best data indicates that vaccine induced chronic disease is now of a magnitude that dwarfs almost all prior poisoning of humans including poisoning from agents like asbestos, low dose radiation, lead and even cigarettes. Most patients don't even realize that they are suffering from the adverse effects of vaccines. Even more concerning patients and or their parents are being harassed, accused of practicing poor dieting and exercise habits leading to development obesity and diabetes when in fact they suffer from vaccine induced obesity and diabetes," says Dr. J. Bart Classen.

    May 22nd. Congress restricts mass NSA data collection of Americans with the USA Freedom Act

    Report 21 (June 2, 2014)
    Conrad LeBeau

    Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, (my Congressman) who sponsored the original Patriot Act that started the mass collection of private data by the National Security Agency (NSA) has strongly criticized the agency for exceeding the powers granted to it by Congress after 911. Rep Sensenbrenner was a leading sponsor of the USA Freedom Act. The following was his statement on 5/22/2014.

    Sensenbrenner

    Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the House for bringing the USA FREEDOM Act to the floor. I was Chairman of the Judiciary Committee on September 11, 2001. In the wake of that tragedy, the Committee passed the PATRIOT Act with unanimous, bipartisan support. The bill easily passed in both the House and Senate, and President George W. Bush signed it into law. I believe the PATRIOT Act made America safer by enhancing the government’s ability to find and stop terrorist attacks. We were also careful to maintain the civil liberties that distinguish us from our enemies.

    We’re here today because the government misapplied the law and upset the balance between privacy and security that we had fought to preserve. In a feat of legal gymnastics, the Administration convinced the FISA court that, because some records in the universe of every phone call Americans made were relevant to counterterrorism, the entire universe of calls must be relevant. The decision opened the floodgates to a practice of bulk collection that Congress never intended.

    Senator Leahy and I introduced the USA FREEDOM Act to end bulk collection, increase transparency, and re-establish a proper balance between privacy and security. After months of input and negotiations—in a historic echo of its vote on the PATRIOT Act—the Judiciary Committee unanimously passed the FREEDOM Act. Read more here.


    Saturday May 24th Worldwide March Against Monsanto.

    208 events are planned in the United States alone. Click here to locate an event in your area. [Click on the second column to select your country, then the state or city, and scroll to the far right column for the event and time, or go to facebook page link for your local event.]

    May 24th update - go here to see photos of the protest against Monsanto from around the world. The mass media continues to ignore these street protests. On May 24th, I watched NBC evening news with Lester Holt. It was brought to viewers by "Roundup" (Monsanto's notorious herbicide). Apparently NBC is more interested in protecting its bottom line than to report the truth. Ditto for the other mass media whores (ABC- FOX and CBS).

    In spite of this, we must continue the battle against Wall St's economic oligarchs that continue to poison our food supply for their own profit. The policy of letting big corporations poison the US food supply for their bottomline has the active support of Wall St lawyers (e.g. Michael Taylor - former VP Monsanto) working within the FDA and USDA.

    IRH3rdDr Ronald Peters MD co-authors a new updated version of the Immune Restoration Handbook

    May 19 2014
    The Immune Restoration Handbook was updated last month. It is now co-authored by Dr. Ronald Peters MD. Three articles he wrote on MindBody Medicine, Wisdom of the Body, and one on Nutrition have been included in this latest printing, which is an updated version of the third edition. The book has been reformatted into two columns with smaller paragraphs for easier reading.

    A chapter on "Balance your Blood Sugar" has been added and an updated index is included. Every chapter in the book including the sections on GMO's, Symptoms and Remedies, and Hepatitis have been carefully reviewed and updated. By eliminating repetition, the number of pages and price remains the same. The gill sans font, which is easy to read, was retained. Although Ron Peters MD's name is on the front cover as a co-author, the book's cover looks basically the same as in the last printing.

    Since the 3rd edition was introduced in 2010, all printings have been done in small lots so reprints can be updated twice a year. This is why there has been some gradual changes in content over time. In a constantly changing world, no edition will ever be the final edition until it is the final edition. Your purchase of our lifetime's work, the Immune Restoration Handbook, supports our mission to educate the public on many issues, and create a better world for all of us. Thank you for your support.
