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 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 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.

    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

    Jan 17th Update

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

    Conrad LeBeau

    In December 2017, we became aware of various search engine messages to Internet browsers using Safari or Internet Explorer that Home page at 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 -  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 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 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 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 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 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 for additional information. It is an honor representing you and all the people of Wisconsin.

    Sincerely, Ron Johnson United States Senator


    My Reply to Senator Johnson email is the following-

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

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

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

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

    Pain and Love
    Our Lady's Message to the world

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

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

    Posted on August 10, 2017 at Natural Health News

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Zimbabwe -A report on Blackseed and home remedies for HIV

    Nyasha Dhliwayo July 30 (2 days ago) to me

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

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

    However, everyday I take about 3T raw honey with raw Propolis. I also take 2T twice per day raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. But all these supplements I just started taking around May 2017. Before I just took normal diet and black seed herb. Every morning before brushing my teeth I drink 1 Litre hot water with 6 or more slices fresh lemon in it. I drink lots of warm water during the day. Once in a while I chew 4 dandelion leaves. 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


    [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.”


    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.


    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

    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 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.

    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:

    The FDA letters were sent to -

    • AIE Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Cevrogin, Cholestrien, ImmunPro, Livral Complex
    • Amazing Sour Sop, Inc. Sour Sop (Graviola) Capsules, Sour Sop Leaves, Sour Sop Tea Bags
    • BioStar Technology International, LLC Angiostop, Ashwagandha, Asparagus Extract, Olive Leaf Qi, and Revivin
    • Caudill Seed & Warehouse Inc. Vitalica
    • Freeda Vitamins – Garlic 400 mg, Freeda Vitamins – Quercetin 50 mg, Freeda Vitamins – Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 50 mg, Maxi Health – Livamax with Milk Thistle, Maxi Health – Maxi Omega-3 2000, Maxi Health – Triple Maxi Omega-3 Concentrate with D3 2000IU, and Maxi Health – Maxi Resveratrol – Kosher Heart & Memory Formula
    • Everything Herbs Cleavers, Inkberry, Korean Ginseng, Lapacho, Red Clover, and Whole Apricot

    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 (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 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 and is located in Dallas Texas. Ph: 1-877-379-1179. 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 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 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, 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.

    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. ]

    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

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

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

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

    Jan 5th 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.

    Latest Medjugorje Message, December 25, 2015

    “Dear children! Also today I am carrying my Son Jesus to you and from this embrace I am giving you His peace and a longing for Heaven. I am praying with you for peace and am calling you to be peace. I am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”

    The Virgin Mary's annual message to Jakov and the world was posted at one of two websites I access. The other is

    9/12/98 Medjugorje - Jakov Received the 10th Secret

    It was announced today in Medjugorje that Jakov, one of the six visionaries, received his 10th and last secret from Our Lady. Currently, Mirjana, Ivanka, and now Jakov have received all 10 secrets. Vicka, Marija, and Ivan have received 9. What follows is the official announcement from the Information Center in Medjugorje...


    While on his journey in America, Jakov reported the following text to us from Miami. "On Friday September 11th during the regular apparition Our Lady told me to prepare myself specially by prayer for tomorrow's apparition because she will confide the 10th secret to me. On Saturday September 12th Our Lady came at 11:15 (local time). When she came she greeted me as always with 'Praised be Jesus'. While she was confiding the 10th secret to me she was sad. Then with a gentle smile she said to me:

    Dear child! I am your mother and I love you unconditionally. From today I will not be appearing to you every day, but only on Christmas, the birthday of my Son. Do not be sad, because as a mother I will always be with you and like every true mother I will never leave you. And you continue further to follow the way of my Son, the way of peace and love and try to persevere in the mission that I have confided to you. Be an example of that man who has known God and God's love. Let people always see in you an example of how God acts on people and how God acts through them. I bless you with my motherly blessing and I thank you for having responded to my call. (The apparition ended at 11:45)"

    P.S. In a short telephone conversation with Fr. Slavko Barbaric, Jakov said that he cried for a long time and that he is very sad. Last Modified 11/22/2001

    [12/25/15 Editor's comment - On 9/11/1998, three years to the date before the attack on the World Trade Center Towers, the Virgin Mary asked Jakov to prepare for the next day's revelations of the 10th secret by praying. It is well noted that the events of 9/11 plunged the United States and other nations into war in Iraq, a war that has now spread across the crescent of the Middle East from Libya to Afghanistan. Were these events foretold to Jakov in 1998? Today's message of peace to mankind is more hopeful, Peace begins in the heart with prayer, love, and the foregiveness of both friend and foe]

    Dec 15, 2015 Bi-Weekly Report

    An Open Letter to Janet Yellin, Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, appeals to maintain low interest rates

    Conrad LeBeau
    The 7 member Federal Reserve Board meets Dec 15 and 16 to discuss and consider whether any changes should be made in the Discount rate or Federal Funds rate that the Federal Reserve Banks charge member banks who borrow funds. Currently, pressure to increase interest rates is coming from Big Eastern Banks, talking heads on TV, but not from the general public. The middle class, the working class, students who borrow for an education, credit card users, renters, home owners, and small businesses have not only nothing to gain but a lot to lose under any change in monetary policy that increases interest rates on borrowing.

    So far, Janet Yellin, who has followed in the footsteps of her predecessor, Bernard Bernanke, has kept interest rates near zero. Last week, in my letter to Ms. Yellin that I mailed in a USPS flat rate priority envelope, I presented, from a consumers point of view, several reasons why raising interest rates at this time was a bad idea not only for the U.S. economy but for the world economy as well. In this letter, I made 4 specific proposals:

    1. To maintain the Fed's discount (interest rate) at near zero as a permanent monetary policy.

    2. To resume the purchase of U.S. bonds and securities at a rate of 100 billion dollars per month until the Fed owns most if not all the national debt. Federal Reserve Banks, unlike privately owned banks, must return their profits to the U.S. Treasury at the end of every year. Those profits are approaching 100 billion a year and are income for the U.S. government to fund its budget without the need for additional taxes. Under Quantitative Easing since 2008, the Federal Reserve Banks have paid over 500 billion dollars into the U.S. Treasury, as reported by the Associated Press (AP). This is a huge financial benefit for the Federal Government and for taxpayers. For 2014, the Federal Reserve paid $98.7 billion into the U.S. Treasury.

    3. To substantially reduce the interest rates borrowers pay on credit cards, I asked the Federal Reserve to establish a Credit Card Discount Rate lending program to help consumers pay off high interest rate credit card debt with low interest rate funds from the Federal Reserve Banks.

    4. To substantially reduce the interest rates borrowers pay on student loans, I asked the Federal Reserve to establish a Student Loan Discount Rate lending program to help college students pay off high interest rate credit card debt with low interest rate funding from the Federal Reserve Banks.

    The Federal Reserve can do all this because Congress gave them an unique power: that is - to write checks against no funds and thus create bookkeeping entry money as a medium of exchange. A loan of Federal Reserve bank "credit" is electronic money, and exists entirely in the hard drives of the banks computers.

    Example - Credit as "money" is "a promise to pay money" but is not "legal tender" coins or currency as defined by Congress for the payment of debts public and private. Borrowers use "credit" created by private banks every time the banks make a loan. [Credit as "money" circulates through the use of checks, money orders, bank drafts, credit cards, debit cards, and electronic funds transfers. Today, 90 to 95% or more of our money supply is a cashless exchange of numbers called "dollars" that are transferred between checking and savings accounts.]

    Fractional Reserve Banking is Fraudulent Reserve Banking

    Five dollars in cash is typically used as leverage to create and lend $100 in credit when the leverage is based on 5% reserves. Using $5 in cash to make a $100 loan of "credit" is called fractional reserve banking - Critics of this practice call it what it really is - fraudulent reserve banking. The interest collected on loans of bank credit is why most of the nation's wealth is now concentrated in the hands of the stockholders of major banks. Scroll down to the reprint below "Big Bank Probe Urged - Handful Controls Industry"

    The effect of banks lending their credit as money is that they are exercising a power (to coin money) originally delegated to Congress in Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. It is both the ignorance and the corruption of elected members of Congress that this practice has continued for more than 200 years, since the establishment of the First United States Bank by Alexander Hamilton.

    The First United States banks as well as the Second U.S. banks typically issued their own currencies. In 1913, the Federal Reserve Act signed by Pres. Woodrow Wilson delegated to the Federal Reserve Board regulatory powers including for setting the cash reserve requirements of all banks. The total amount of "credit" that banks have loaned to the government and the public in the past 100 years is unknown, but amounts to several trillions of dollars. It could be argued that the lending of credit, a form of money created by banks, is both illegal and unconstitutional.

    [Big banks realize that Federal Reserve Banks, as non-profit institutions, are their competition when they lend credit to the government. With 4.5 Trillion (out of a total national debt approaching 20 trillion), in bonds and securities owned by the Federal Reserve Banks, the Federal Reserve banks own slightly over 20% of the national debt. The Federal Reserve returns about 98% of the interest they collect from the Federal Government back to the U.S. Treasury in December of each year, thus converting these bonds into virtual non-interest bearing debts.]

    My 3-page letter to Fed Chairperson Janet Yellin is double spaced and easy to read. I urge everyone to not only read it but to make copies and send copies to your elected leaders in Washington. Copies may also be sent to individual members of the Federal Reserve Board. Click here to read my letter to Janet Yellin in its entirety.

    [Become a volunteer for change by reprinting this letter and personally presenting it to your Congressmen and U.S. Senators at their local public meetings. When contacting your elected leaders, sending them an email is almost a complete waste of time. Just think about the number of emails you get every day that you simply delete because you don't take the time to read them. If an idea is worth bringing to the attention of an important person, why not invest $5 for a flat rate priority envelope and send it along with a short concise personal letter? This small investment will bring your message 1000 times more attention than sending an email to your Congressman or Senator.]

    HIV, Vitamin D sufficiency and immune restoration

    Denis from Croatia (orgonitash) sent the email group a link to this article originally published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Here is an excerpt from the author, Amara Ezeamama of the University of Georgia:

    "Ezeamama conducted an 18-month longitudinal study in which the immune status of 398 HIV-positive adults was measured at 0, 3, 6, 12 and 18 months. The researchers, through observation, related the rise in immune function to whether or not individuals had adequate levels of vitamin D."

    "Specifically, Ezeamama found that vitamin D helped the adults' CD4+T cells recover more quickly. CD4+T cells are a type of T cell that helps the immune system fight off pathogens. For HIV-positive adults, CD4+T cells are critical because of their weakened immune systems. Ezeamama found that participants with sufficient levels of vitamin D recovered more of their immune function -- on average 65 CD4+T cells more -- than those with vitamin D deficiency. The benefit of vitamin D sufficiency seemed greater for younger and underweight HIV-positive adults."

    An article published in Science Daily has more information on this study.

    Vitamin D update - personal

    After taking 10,000 i.u. of vitamin D daily since July of this year, it has barely moved my numbers that were 47 ng/ml in July and are now 48 in December. About 3 months ago I stopped taking Coral Calcium along with the vitamin D. While studies have widely reported that vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium, could the reserve be true: that calcium helps with the absorption of vitamin D? Published studies indicate that magnesium assists vitamin D in immune function, and absorption may be improved by taking it with the evening meal instead of on an empty stomach. [After the latest test results I decided to take one vitamin D(10,000 i.u.) capsule with the evening meal along with one magnesium oxide (500 mg), vitamin A, 10,000 i.u. and one coral calcium capsule. In a few months, I will retest using the Life Extension Fdn Labcorp test and see if this improves the serum levels.

    Life Extension FDN has dropped annual membership fees

    The $75 dollar annual membership fee has been discontinued. Now you can join for free. The cost for the vitamin D test is just $47. LEF provides a list of local labcorp offices where the blood draw is made and results can be emailed or mailed to you within a few days. Since 75% of the population is deficient in vitamin D and it impacts the functional activity of your entire immune system, and as a hormone, vitamin D is involved in the prevention or treatment of over 100 health conditions, it should be considered a priority investment. For more information contact the Life Ext Fdn at 1-800-544-4440 or at Note: Medicare and most insurance companies will pay for doctor ordered tests for vitamin D serum levels.

    The historic split between Sunni and Shiite Muslims is along religious fault lines

    National Public Radio has an excellent article called Chronology - a History of the Shiite- Sunni Split, by Mike Shuster. The article documents the history of the birth of the Islam and historic divisions between the majority Sunni branch and the minority Shiite branches of the Muslim religion. It begins with the birth of the Prophet Muhammad in 570 and lists major events up to 2007.

    With a Shiite dominated government in Baghdad and a Sunni population in Anbar province in the western part of Iraq and no reconciliation between the two factions, the Iraq and Syrian conflict is complex with multiple parties that have both similar and competing interests. The U.S. invasion of Iraq that removed the moderate Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein has now left the world a more dangerous place than it was before this ill advised invasion.

    Recently, Daesh aka ISIS or ISIL with its fragmented caliphate in both Syria and Iraq have taken credit for its recent murderous rampage in France that killed 130 civilians and for the downing of a Russian aircraft in Egypt that killed 224 civilians who were on a vacation. ISIS has also decapitated American news reporter and photo journalist James Foley and has threatened the United States directly.

    The conflict in Syria that started out as a street protest against President Assad has evolved into a Sunni vs. Shiite muslim war. President Assad and a majority of his followers are alawites - considered a branch of Shiite Islam. The battle lines are evolving along a major split in the followers of Muhammad. In a publication "The Commentator" is an article about Sunni and Shia Jihad by Valentino Colombo.

    She states that Sunni and Shia Jihad in Syria today is clearly split along religious lines and could have serious consequences for the West. The Syrian conflict has moved past mere anger at President Assad. Valentino Colombo adds:

    "In 2011 after the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia and the Lotus Revolution in Egypt, Syria proved that it was not immune to regional unrest. Syrians directed their anger against the secular Assad regime and, at the time, sectarianism did not play a role. Today, however, the battle in Syria is clearly split along religious lines. It is no longer about freedom versus dictatorship, but about Sunni versus Shia. According to Syria’s constitution, “freedom of religion is guaranteed” and “the State respects all religions.”

    In Syria and several other countries, the conflict between Sunni and Shiites has spread. The fault lines are as follows. Two extreme factions exist on the fringes of the Sunni branch of Islam- they are al-qaeda and ISIS (aka Daesh). Both of these terrorist organizations support global jihad; the most violent and extreme group of the two is Daesh (ISIS). ISIS actions in killing unarmed civilians is well documented. They have video-taped their own savagery and crimes against humanity and posted their atrocities on social media like Utube and Facebook.

    Countries with significant Sunni Muslims are Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, Tunisia, Turkey and Chechnya. The 19 hijackers who flew civilian airplanes into the World Trade Center on 9/11 all came from Saudi Arabia.

    ISIS or Daesh is getting financial support, money and military supplies smuggled to them from wealthy oil sheiks in bordering countries - most likely -Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

    Countries with significant Shiite Muslim populations are Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. Hezbollah and Hamas Shiites are also allied with Syria, Iran and the current government in Baghdad, Iraq.

    Since the U.S. invasion of Iraq, thousands of Shiite muslims have been killed by bombs hidden in open markets, at Mosques and in any area where a concentration of Shiite muslims has occurred. These attacks have been going on for a decade or longer and are led by al-qaeda and other Sunni extremist groups like ISIS. The moderate Sunni's who oppose these extremists have been unable to get the upper hand or have themselves been killed by the Sunni Jihadist terrorists.

    A reader wrote the following in reply to Valentino's article in The Commentator:

    from Hassan Ali
    Muslim Shias are peaceful people. They are being killed, on daily basis, in their mosques , markets and other holy places. Killing and taking revenge are not part of Shias' religious literatures. They constantly seek to bring other Muslim sects to be unified as one Islamic entity. Most Islamic sects agree upon this aim except the Salafi, Takfiri and Wahabi groups. Shias fled their countries because of these terrorist groups. Even in their unwanted Diaspora! they lack some insecurity due to sporadic threats from such kind of people. In Australia, England and other Western countries, Shias are targeted mainly because they are Shias. Shias, in their original countries; such are Iraq, Syria, Egypt and some other Arab countries , suffer from suicide attacks, slaughtering, kidnapping and other violent acts. Western nations should enact laws (to) criminalize such instigation's and threats.

    Today an effort led by France to unite the United States, Russia, France and other western democracies against ISIS is now underway. Whether this effort will also be coordinated with other natural allies against ISIS and al-qaeda like Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas remains to be seen.

    Should the U.S. Accept Syrian Refugees or should we provide financial aid to resettle them in the Middle East?

    Jordan, a small muslim country bordering Syria, is the home to several hundred thousand refugees from that worn-torn country. According to Dr. Ben Carson a Republican presidential candidate who recently visited Jordan, he stated there is a 3 billion dollar shortage in funding to support the basic needs of the refugees already there.

    The United States should contribute an annual donation of 1 or 2 billion dollars to help support the refugees already there. Funding to help refugees stay in the Middle East or Europe is preferred to opening the door in the U.S. to a flood of refugees who may not feel welcome here. A few more mass shootings by suicidal Moslems will further poison the well of public opinion.

    Funding for helping refugees need not involve taxpayer money or borrowing credit from Big New York banks. Congress could coin a single one-ounce platinum coin with a legal tender value of ten billion dollars and deposit it in a newly created special account at the Federal Reserve Bank to pay for food and housing for refugees of the Syrian civil war. Congress then can draw funds from this account with appropriate legislation and spend it on helping the refugees and for other worthy purposes.

    In fact, since Congress has both the power to coin money under Art 1, Sec 8 of the U.S. Constitution, and also the power under Art 1, Sec 8 to borrow money on the credit of the United States, it should amend the U.S. Constitution to repeal the clause that gives it the power to borrow money. By exercising its power to coin money, Congress can pay off the entire national debt, and never have a deficit again or ever again need to borrow bank credit. It is a dereliction of duty for Congress and the President that a national debt was ever allowed to come into existence in the first place.

    Note. I have had no response from the six presidential candidates that were mailed the Big Bank Probe packets a few weeks ago, except that Ben Carson's fund raisers called and asked for a donation. In the coming presidential candidate debates later this month and next, we will find out if these packets have had any effect on any of the presidential candidates.

    Pour France - nous partageons votre douleur en cette période de deuil. Nous ne les oublierons pas. (To France - we share your pain in this time of mourning. We shall not forget.)

    The face of senseless terrorism reared its ugly head in Paris, France, slaughtering over 129 innocent civilians in the name of islamic jihad. While there is plenty of mental illness to go around in this crazy world, the leaders and members of ISIS show blatant disregard for human life, and exceptional brutality not seen since the middle ages. The law of Karma will yet come full circle - what they do unto others shall be done unto them.

    "Democratize the Banks" plan sent to 6 Presidential candidates.

    Information packets with reprints of the 1968 Milwaukee Sentinel front page article with a 5 page letter outlining solutions to the credit, debt and money issue were mailed in priority mail envelopes to six presidential candidates this past week - the packets were sent to Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Ted Cruz, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump. It now remains to be seen if any of the ideas proposed will surface in upcoming presidential debates in both major parties.

    Nov 1st 2015 Report
    Reprinted from the Milwaukee Sentinel July 9 1968

    Conrad LeBeau
    Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont stated in the nationally televised Democratic debate (Oct 2015) that less than a fraction of 1% of the population owns over 90% of the wealth in this country. Today, more than 47 years after it was published in the Milwaukee Sentinel on July 9, 1968, the above reprint of the findings of the House Banking Committee in 1968 is photographic evidence that the Senator from Vermont is right.

    I have retained possession of this newspaper with its explosive headline since 1968 and have chosen this month to republish this most informative of articles. The yellowing of original newspaper shows in the photographic reprint I made this past week. This photographic reprint and important proposals for monetary and banking reform are published in the Forum section of this website and offer several solutions on how to deal with the debt crisis, and keep interest rates low or near zero. Coming soon - a proposal to democratize the banks to redistribute their wealth.

    On that historic July date in 1968, while President Lyndon Johnson was in the White House and the Vietnam war was raging, the headlines read - BIG-BANK PROBE URGED "Handful Controls Industry". The article quotes from a letter by the Chairman of the House Banking Committee, the Honorable Wright Patman of Texas, who wrote to then U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark asking for an antitrust investigation of a handful of banks which the committee found controlled more than half of the nation's trillion dollar investment industry.

    Today, nearly half a century later, that figure may well be over10 trillion dollars. A copy of the headline page article (upper part photo and the lower half of the Sentinel article plus the balance of the article on page 3 is on the Forum link.) A written transcript of the Sentinel article is part of this report - it is easier to read than using a magnifying glass to read the Sentinel's front cover.

    Debt and Credit - two side of the same coin

    The sole reason why commercial banks have accumulated most of the wealth of the nation in the past 200 years is because of trade secrets that the bankers have closely held that have allowed them to make loans way beyond their customer's deposits. The collective effect is that banks, especially the biggest banks, have created trillions of dollars through book-keeping entries with the use of bank checks and credit cards. The interest collected on these trillions of dollars in loans of credit have created a mountain of debt for the Federal Gov't, State governments, private industry, farmers, small businesses, student loans, credit card holders, and individuals. The result is economic slavery. At the same time, the bankers have made $trillions in profits as stock holders of the banks and as major stockholders in private industry. [to better understand how banks create money, read the article in the right column under "Money Creation - from the Knight's Templars to Wall St."

    What to do about it all?

    I am calling on everyone who visits this website to not only read, but to reprint this article, the photographic images, and get copies of selected Forum articles on solutions to this growing debt crisis into the hands of all political leaders of both parties, but especially all the presidential candidates in both parties.

    The Forum articles are divided into 11 sections. The most important articles to reprint are in the first 2 sections. In the first section is Banking 101 under the [Coin, Credit, Currency and Banking 101] section and the first two articles under the next section titled ["Mint those Platinum Coins"] and ["Congress can authorize low interest rate credit cards...."] for the American People. It is important to educate our leaders and to reprint and mail all this material together to one or more presidential candidates of your choice and to include a personal cover letter.

    I highly recommend reprinting the 3 articles I highlighted here and mailing it using a USPS priority Mail envelope to a presidential candidate of your choice and to your Congressman.

    Watching the presidential debates in both political parties shows how incredibly ignorant the moderators of these debates are as well as most of the candidates on the subject of money, banking and the Federal Reserve. The number one issue should be reduce the future growth of both the public and private debt of the nation through monetary reform that restores an honest money system that keeps interest rates near zero as a permanent policy, refinances all high interest debt to lower interest rates, and to level the playing field with the super rich.

    The job of taking our country back from the Wall St bankers, and the billionaires who reside there, belongs to all of us. Click here for the 3 photographs and the Forum articles. If we don't take Washington back from the billionaires on Wall St, and reclaim control over our own government, who will?

    B-12 deficiency is widespread

    Dr. Ronald Peters MD

    A recent study done at Oxford University and published in the journal Neurology, suggested that up to 40% of the population may be deficient in vitamin B-12. Vitamin B-12 deficiency is especially common among vegetarians and vegans, but it's also surprisingly common in meat eaters as well. Again, this is likely due to common intestinal absorption problems.

    Symptoms of B-12 deficiency

    1. Chest pain or shortness of breath
    2. Fatigue or unexplained weakness
    3. Dizziness, trouble with balance, and fainting
    4. Confusion, memory loss or dementia
    5. Coldness, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
    6. Slow reflexes or diminished nervous system function
    7. Pale skin or yellowing of the skin
    8. Sore mouth and tongue

    To read Dr Peters complete article on vitamin B12, click here.

    Editor's note: B12 deficiency is common in people with cancer, diabetes, hiv/aids, cardiovascular disease, dementia, eye function, nerve damage, neuropathy, people over 50, elevated homocysteine, and people with chronic problems with digestion.

    October 1, report

    September 15th - A Case Report

    Conrad LeBeau
    This report is about a female from Harlem, NY. I will call her “Mary” not her real name. Here is a shortened version of her latest phone call to me on Sept 14, 2015. She is a married and her husband is HIV positive. Mary became infected in January 2015 after having had sex with her husband in an event that resulted in the breakage of a condom.

    At the end of 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 being 0.42. The viral load for HIV was about 21000 in the February test.

    In evaluating the effectiveness of any HIV treatment protocol, the usual lab numbers most of us look at are the viral load and the CD4 counts. Patient M’s original lab results from using a pharmaceutical HIV drug would be usual– CD4 counts increase and the viral load declines to a non-detectable level. No one would think these results are extra-ordinary if they missed this observation – after 3 months on this combination protocol, Patient M’s CD4/CD8 ratio returned to normal.

    The significance of this is as remarkable as a bolt of lightning coming out of a clear blue sky. The immune system's initial response to the HIV virus is to flip or invert the CD4/ CD8 ratio. A typical example of a normal CD4/CD8 ratio before HIV is a CD4 count of 800 and a CD8 count of 500. If you divide 800 by 500, you get 1.6 and that would be a normal CD4/CD8 ratio. A few months ago, on May 15th I wrote why I thought we needed to pay more attention to the CD4/CD8 ratio; the main reason being that this ratio must return to normal before an evaluation of a possible cure for HIV/AIDS should be undertaken.

    The usual reference range for a person who was never exposed to the HIV virus is between 1.0 and 2.0. However, after infection with HIV, the ratio flips and the CD8 counts increase while the CD4 counts drop until the ratio falls below 1.0. After HIV infection, you get the opposite – an example is a CD4 count of 400 and a CD8 count of 800. When you divide 400 by 800 it is 0.5 that is a typical ratio for someone who has active HIV infection. A CD4/CD8 ratio of less than 1.0 occurs when active HIV infection is present somewhere in the body.

    The return of a normal CD4/CD8 ratio is important in HIV/AIDS because it likely indicates that, as the immune system sees it, the enemy is gone and the HIV virus can no longer be found. What I am saying is that a return of a normal CD4/CD8 ratio may be an indication that total eradication of the AIDS virus has occurred. In Dr. Onifade's et al studies in Nigeria, we were not given information on the CD4/CD8 ratios and how black seed therapy changed those ratios.

    In my opinion, of the 7 reported cures of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, none of these cures would be possible without a return to a normal CD4/ CD8 ratio. This is because CD8 cytotoxic lymphocytes are activated to control and suppress HIV activity. Except for a few rare cases, the immune response does not clear the virus from the body.

    Timeline of events in the past 6 months

    Around March 11, patient M's doctor prescribed the pharmaceutical drug Complera, a once a day complete HIV treatment regimen in one pill. Patient M started on it immediately. The ingredients in Complera, its benefits and side effects, can be found at The website states that Complera is not a cure for AIDS. However, patient M's protocol involved more than using Complera.

    On March 19, she used a coffee grinder to grind 4 teaspoons of whole black seeds into a powder which she mixed with water and took this twice a day for one month - then she reduced the dosage to two teaspoons twice a day.

    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 since March of 2015.

    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 Patient M 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 D which she has taken once a week since the middle of June.

    On August 28, 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.

    I told her my opinion that when the CD4/CD8 ratio returns to normal, it likely means she has been cured of HIV infection and that no active virus remains in her body. I asked her to get a standard HIV test for the Elisa/western blot to see if any antibodies remained.

    In the first week of September, she went to CVS Pharmacy and paid $50 for the Oraquick HIV Test. It is a saliva test and it is reported to be 99% accurate. The results for HIV infection came back negative. Then, questioning those results, she went to a local hospital and had a blood test. There was an unexpected delay in the results getting back, and she was told the testing equipment had malfunctioned, and the test results were delayed 4 days. The results came back positive for HIV antibodies from this hospital blood test.

    In the first week of September, Patient M called and told me what had happened. I told her that in more than 20 years, I never heard of anyone with HIV or AIDS having a normal CD4/CD8 ratio. I told her more testing needed to be done as two standard tests now contradicted each other. Her doctor told her the same thing and has now ordered a special PCR test to try to get to the bottom of her most unusual lab results. The test will seek to determine if she has or does not have any active HIV virions remaining in her body.

    Her doctor said if the combination protocol she was on actually cleared the virus from her system, the HIV antibodies could still remain in her blood for up to one year. Her doctor also said that he has never heard of another case where the CD4/CD8 ratio in a person with HIV has returned to normal. We will follow this case closely as it develops.

    Editorial - Choose Peace- not War
    The Iran Nuclear Agreement Deserves our Support

    Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution reads, "The President ... shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur." The issue of whether or not the Iran Nuclear Agreement is a treaty or an Executive agreement may be a matter to be decided in the courts.

    The agreement has the support of all five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council that includes the United Kingdom, France, Russia, China, and the United States, plus Germany, and the European Union. Ninety two nations have now endorsed this agreement. The only real opposition in coming from right wing factions in Israel, particularly Benjamin Netanyahu, and also diehard right wing opponents in Congress who patronize the current foreign policy of Israel for domestic political support. In spite of Netanyahu's opposition, there is significant support inside Israel for this agreement, and this also includes both present and former Jewish members of Congress as noted below.

    The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports that -
    "President Barack Obama is leading efforts to keep Congress from killing the deal. Leading opposition to the deal, in addition to Republicans, are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Much of the focus has been on the 27 Jewish lawmakers caucusing with Democrats in both chambers. Of these, six have said they will oppose the deal, 13 say they support it and eight are undecided."

    Wikipedia has an extensive article on Iran, the history of the country, and its nuclear energy program. Here are two excerpts-

    "Mohamed ElBaradei, former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, wrote that "the only way to resolve the Iranian issue is to build trust...... it's about time now to understand that the Iranian issue is not going to be resolved except, until and unless we sit with the Iranians and try to find a fair and equitable solution."[361] "If this deal is followed up with a broader engagement of the IAEA and the international community, it can be a positive step.."

    "Attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists. In a January 2012 article in Salon magazine, Glenn Greenwald noted the killing of at least five Iranian nuclear scientists during 2010 and 2011, by unknown attackers, with no apparent outcry in the Western media.[363] According to Iran, and privately confirmed by unnamed U.S. government officials, the attacks on the nuclear scientists and facilities are being carried out by an Iranian dissident group called the People's Mujahedin of Iran. According to the officials, the group is financed, trained, and armed by Mossad.[364]"

    Iran is a nation of shiite muslims who have a history of peacefully co-existing with christians and other religions, unlike some extremist factions of the Sunni branch of Islam - the ISIS, who decapitate and murder Christians, Shiite muslims, members of all other religions, and engage in barbaric, unspeakable, and inhumane behavior not seen since the middle ages. We should remember that the 911 attackers were all from Saudi Arabia and were members of Al-Qaeda - an extremist Sunni Islamic group. It should be noted here that the vast majority of Sunni muslims are not violent extremists and do peacefully co-exist with other religions. Religious tolerance is something we must all practice.

    We urge readers to support the Iran Nuclear agreement and choose peace, not war. We urge readers to call or write to members of Congress in both political parties and support this carefully structured agreement that has adequate safeguards built in to protect the best interests of all parties, including Israel.

    Vitamin D Update

    Conrad LeBeau.
    My personal test results, after increasing my intake of Vitamin D3 to 10,000 i.u .daily from 5000 i.u. for the past 6 weeks is that my blood serum level has increased from 31 to 47 ng/ml. I also tan indoors 20 minutes a day 3 times a week. The florescent tubes in the sun bed I use emit both UVA and UVB rays that parallel the sun's radiation output. It is only the UVB rays that cause the production of vitamin D in the skin. It took six weeks (from around July 7th to August 20th) to accomplish this significant increase in serum levels of vitamin D. The result of these tests have convinced me that I have been deficient in vitamin D all my life and that this has had significant adverse consequences for my immune system and health in multiple ways.

    Here are some of the benefits from increasing my intake of vitamin D that I have observed in the past 3 months.

    1. 95% of the psoriasis I have had on my knees and elbows for the past 50 years is gone.

    2. Periodic bouts of asthma have stopped.

    3. Joint pain is gone. I no longer need to take Turmeric, Curcumin or Glucosamine Sulfate. A pain in my right foot that has periodically bothered me for the past five years has simply vanished.

    4. Sleep interruptions have decreased from 3 times per night to just once per night and the quality of sleep has improved with the restoration of dreams, pleasant dreams at that.

    5. Sinus infections have all but ended. (I still have to restrict my intake of milk and ice cream, but I tolerate cheese, yogurt and cooked milk much better than before vitamin D supplementation.)

    6. Hay fever due to rag weed intolerance ( a life long problem) has been barely noticeable this year.

    The next issue of the Journal of Immunity will focus on research about the role of vitamin D in immune activity, balance and restoration. There will also be updates on a few case reports with interesting results and there will be an update on my legal saga with the DOJ and the FDA that has been going on for the past 5 years. New briefs were filed by myself and the government in August. Judge Charles N. Clevert's decision in the case is now awaited.

    August 15 update

    Witch Hazel – a traditional remedy used by American Indians has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and anti tumor effects based on scientific research as well as case reports

    Conrad LeBeau
    Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) is a small tree that grows up to 15 ft in height and has elliptic leaves. The deciduous shrub has crooked branches. It blooms with yellow flowers in the fall when the leaves are falling. The seeds or pods ripen the following autumn. Its branches have been used as diving rods. The colonists obtained Witch Hazel from Native American Indians who used a decoction made from Witch Hazel bark or leaves for it many health properties.

    Witch hazel was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia from 1862 to 1916 as an astringent and anti-inflammatory. The bark and leaves are the usual part used for their medicinal properties. The effects of Witch Hazel are astringent, tonic, sedative, diuretic, demulcent, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic (1,2, 3. 4). Witch Hazel has been used both externally and internally. The alcoholic versions of Witch Hazel are often preferred for topical or skin application as it penetrates more effectively than water based versions. The non-alcoholic extract is usually preferred for oral use.

    Thayer’s makes both versions - an alcoholic and a non-alcoholic one. The non-alcoholic Witch Hazel is in a base of aloe vera; Both types are sold in health food stores. Witch Hazel bark or leaves may also be used to make an herbal decoction for oral or topical use.

    Witch Hazel’s Historical Use as a Folk Remedy

    Topical use: Alcohol based Witch Hazel may be used topically or as a mouth rinse for gum inflammation, hemorrhoids, and infections including yeast based athletes foot, vaginitis and jock itch. Witch Hazel may also be used for varicose veins, peripheral neuropathy, skin cancer, boils, internal bleeding, burning or tingling feet, inflamed nerves, numbness sensations in the skin, and inflamed skin conditions. Webmd reports that Witch Hazel has been used topically for – itching, inflammation, skin or muscle injury, insect bites, bruises, burns, varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Witch Hazel as an alcohol extract is available in drug stores and in health food stores.

    Internal use: WebMd reports that witch hazel has taken by mouth and used for diarrhea, vomiting, coughing up blood, colitis, colds and fevers, tuberculosis, tumors and cancer. .Its effectiveness in rapidly shrinking hemorrhoids makes it a plausible candidate for shrinking internal tumors and cancers. The bark of Witch Hazel contains the anti-oxidant (proanthocyanidins found in French Maritime pine bark). Witch Hazel is reported by all available sources to be safe to use and well tolerated. Side effects: Witch Hazel like Thayer’s that is not distilled has natural tannins in it and may cause an allergic reaction in some people. To test your self for a possible allergy, apply some of this or other brand named Witch Hazel solutions to your hand or arm for a day or two and observe if any rash or allergic reactions occurs. If a reaction occurs, consult a health care professional for advice.

    Case Reports: A local resident reported that he cured himself of hemorrhoids by soaking a cotton cloth in the extract and holding it against the hemorrhoids for about 3 minutes. This person reported the Witch Hazel he used had alcohol in it and burned for a few minutes, but that he was cured over 10 years ago with just one treatment.

    Another person I talked to also reported similar results using Witch Hazel topically for hemorrhoids. In another local case, the use of Witch Hazel applied over the feet stopped a burning sensation caused by athlete’s foot.

    In yet another case, nerve pain, thought to be neuropathy, was substantially alleviated with a few applications of Witch Hazel poured directly from the bottle over the affected area, then massaged in.

    Additional case reports wanted on the use of oral Witch Hazel decoction for pain relief anywhere in the body, viral infections like HIV, HCV, HBV, EBV, tuberculosis, and any other chronic infection including influenza A virus. We are also very interested in learning about the effects of Witch Hazel on arthritis, cancers and tumors when it is applied topically to the diseased areas of household pets. Other conditions we would like to hear reports on are arthritis, rheumatism, back pain, both lower and upper, neck pain, and pain in any other areas of the body.

    Indicate whether you got better results with the alcohol extract of Witch Hazel or the non-alcohol versions or got no results at all or if you made your own decoction. Your name will be keep strictly confidential unless you want to go public with your story and authorize us in writing to release personal information (name, phone or email?).

    How to make a decoction using Witch Hazel bark

    Witch Hazel decoction may be made from the bark by placing 2 tablespoons (about one ounce) in a pint of boiling water. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer with cover on pot for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and leave cover on pot for an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and drink in 3 or 4 divided portions throughout the day. Witch Hazel bark may be located at an herb shop, health food stores or found online using a search engine.

    Sources: Witch Hazel bark cs (cut and sifted) is available at For purposes of making a water or alcohol based extract, I would avoid buying the powder as you could end up with a paste. The cut bark is preferred for ease of making an extract. The website is operated by Monterey Bay Spice Co. in Watsonville, CA. Ph 831-722-3400 You can also use a search engine to find other sources.

    August 1 2015 update

    CDC scientist alleges a coverup of research linking MMR vaccines to Autism in young black boys under 3 years of age.

    Source of this report: Weston A Price Foundation forwarded by Rita Bradley

    On July 29, 2015, US Congressman Bill Posey spoke on the floor of the US House quoting CDC whistleblower Dr. Bill Thompson. Dr. Thompson is quoted as stating that CDC destroyed documents to conceal their tracks when they covered up their own study's findings that MMR vaccine caused a huge risk of autism in black boys when given before 3 years of age. A link to the unofficial transcript of Rep. Posey’s speech as well as a link to the C-SPAN video can be found below.

    Mr. Posey: "Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise today on matters of research and scientific integrity. To begin with, I am absolutely, resolutely pro-vaccine. Advancements in medical immunization have saved countless lives and greatly benefitted public health. That being said, it's troubling to me that in a recent Senate hearing on childhood vaccinations, it was never mentioned that our government has paid out over three billion dollars through a vaccine injury compensation program for children who have been injured by vaccinations.

    "Regardless of the subject matter, parents making decisions about their children's health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth. For these reasons I bring the following matter to the House floor:

    "In August 2014, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention worked with a whistleblower attorney to provide my office with documents related to a 2004 CDC study that examined the possibility of a relationship between mumps, measles, rubella vaccines and autism.

    In a statement released in August 2014, Dr. Thompson stated, "I regret that my co-authors and I omitted," OMITTED, "statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the Journal of Pediatrics." [end quote]

    "Mr. Speaker, I respectfully request the following excerpts from the statement written by Dr. Thompson be entered into the record. Now quoting Dr. Thompson:

    "My primary job duties while working in the immunization safety branch from 2000-06 were to lead or co-lead three major vaccine safety studies. The MADDSP MMR Autism Cases controlled study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome. There were several major concerns among scientists and consumers advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000 regarding the execution of the Verstraeten study. One of the important goals that was determined up front in the spring of '01 before any of these studies started was to have all three protocols vetted outside the CDC prior to start of the analyses so that consumer advocates could not claim that we were presenting analyses that suited our own goals and biases. We hypothesized that if we found statistically significant effects at either 18 or 36 month thresholds, we would conclude that vaccinating children early with MMR vaccine could lead to autism-like characteristics or features. "

    "We all met and finalized the study protocol and analysis plan. The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in '03. At the September 5th meeting we discussed in detail how to code race for both the sample and the birth certificate sample. At the bottom of Table 7, it also shows that for the non-birth-certificate sample, the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge.

    "All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September '02 not to report any race effects for the paper. Some time soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.

    "However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office, and I retained all associated computer files. "I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper." [end of quote of the doctor]

    Mr. Speaker, I believe it's our duty to insure that the documents Dr. Thompson provided are not ignored. Therefore, I will provide them to members of Congress and the House committees upon request. Considering the nature of the whistleblower's documents, as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a thorough investigation is warranted. So I ask, Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the appropriations committees to please, please take such action. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I yield back.

    Below is the unofficial transcript of Rep. Posey's comments as well as a link to his speech from C-SPAN beginning at 1:02:25.

    7/29/15 C-Span - Rep. Poseys statement to the House (5 minutes)

    What can you do to get the word out?

    Please ACT NOW to preserve our rights or they WILL be taken away. ACTION TO TAKE: Please send an email to Congressman Posey AND your own Congressperson. The email does not have to be long, just say: I support Rep. Bill Posey and thank him for his testimony today regarding the CDC's intentional destruction of documents. I am grateful William Thompson, MD retained hard copies documenting the truth and as a US citizen I am requesting a full investigation into this issue. Remember to include your name and address.

    1) Email Congressman Posey: Send emails of support directly to Bill Posey’s assistant Patricia Febro at Email Patricia Febro

    2) Email and callyour own Congressperson. Include the link to the C-SPAN video. Find your Representative here: Find your U.S. Representative here Emails become permanent records, unlike faxes or postal mail, which might become 'lost'.

    Emails do not have to be long, just say "I support Bill Posey and thank him for his testimony today regarding the CDC's intentional destruction of documents. I am grateful William Thompson retained hard copies documenting the truth and as a parent of a vaccine injured child. I am requesting a full investigation into this issue." or something like this. Request that Congress subpoena Dr. Thompson to testify in front of Congress. Please ask your mom, your grandma, your uncle, and all of your friends to email today. Please take 2 minutes of your day.

    Sunshine and black seed for HIV - a case report
    (M.Z. a member of our email group shares results - name withheld)

    Hello friends, I started my black seed (capsules) around beginning of May 2015. Initially I was taking 3 capsules twice daily but in June I increased to 5 capsules twice daily. I am also taking Neem Leaf and I just finished Transfer Factor. As I told you I also did biomagnetic sessions (9 of them, around one weekly). I am in Florida and I go out in the sun daily. As I promised my test results:

    15 May 2015

    1. viral load: 15,046 copies/ml
    2. CD4: 593
    3. CD8: 813
    4. CD4/CD8 ratio : 0.73
    5. White Blood Cells: 4,200
    6. Platelets: 252

    20 Jul 2015

    1. viral load: 6,800 copies/ml
    2. CD4: 691
    3. CD8: 922
    4. CD4/CD8 ratio: 0.75
    5. While Blood Cells: 5,500
    6. Platelets: 304

    Let us keep our faith strong because the cure is close. I have not taken ARVs yet. I think under normal circumstances the viral load should have gone up. I have been very depressed because of personal issues and I think my results would have been far more better had I been calm and happy. I would like your feedback. Thank you. (M. Z.)

    My comment to M.Z. and the email groiup: "The results you achieved are rare for someone not using prescribed HIV meds - your CD4 went up and your viral load went down. I wish I knew how the amount of time you spent outdoors in the sun increased your serum vitamin D levels. Any plans to test vitamin D levels in the near future? Your results support my theory that an effective black seed treatment for HIV also requires the component of adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood. We need to chart blood levels of vitamin D with the rise or fall of CD4 counts and viral loads. It is too early to draw general conclusions from your case but it keeps our hopes alive for a possible cure in the future. Conrad."

    My personal Vitamin D test results were 31 ng/ml
    (just above the low end of the reference range)

    Conrad LeBeau
    After taking 4000 i.u to 6000 i.u of vitamin D3 daily as a supplement combined with 20 minutes of sun tanning in a indoor salon 3 times a week for 5 weeks, my test results done on July 10 showed I was at the low end of the normal reference range at 31 ng/ml reports that blood serum levels less than 30 ng/ml (nanograms per milli-liter) are considered as deficient. Considering that I developed a nice tan from the use of the indoor tanning light machine plus I was taking an average of about 5000 i.u. of vitamin D each day for 5 weeks, I wonder now just how low my vitamin D levels were in May of 2015 when I had a very severe sinus infection that lasted nearly a month and required me to take antibiotics for 10 days to get rid of it. It would not have surprised me if the numbers were in the teens or less.

    The benefits I have experienced from sun tanning and vitamin D supplements in the past 5 weeks is that my psoriasis of 50 years duration (on my knees and elbows) is 95% gone and my reoccurring sinus infections have vanished, although I still must avoid milk and most milk products to prevent excess mucus production. I sleep much better and have more energy during the day time than I had before. My vitamin D test was prescribed by a local immunologist and paid for by Medicare. The doctor listed hypertension as the reason for the test. With over 100 million Americans living with high blood pressure, and with research indicating that adequate Vitamin D3 levels helps keep HBP in a normal range, everyone with HBP should request a blood serum test for vitamin D levels.

    At the same time, everyone with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, sinusitis, allergies, candidiasis, lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, HIV, HCV, TB and HBV and any other chronic infection also needs to get their vitamin D levels tested and find out what they are. It will take retesting every couple of months to determine the amount of sunshine, sun tanning in a salon or supplements needed to get their vitamin D numbers back into a normal reference range. Ideally, you want to be in the middle or the upper part of the reference ranges for vitamin D. What are the normal reference ranges?

    30 to 100 ng/ml are normal reference ranges for serum levels of vitamin D

    Based on published studies, the bottom of the reference range is 30 ng/ml. Published studies on the upper safe limit of vitamin D in the blood are 100 ng/ml according to Dr Michael Holick MD who stated that up to 100 ng/ml have been reported to be safe. Dr. Holick states an ideal target range for blood serum is 40 to 60 ng/ml. Dr. Holick discusses the role of vitamin D in a full text article on Pubmed titled - Vitamin D - a D-lightful Solution for Health. I urge everyone to read this article. Dr Holick is the author of two books on Vitamin D - "THE VITAMIN D SOLUTION" and "THE UV EFFECT."

    Several published estimates are that over 50% of the world's population is deficient in vitamin D and most of the people with the health conditions listed above are in the tank with severely low levels of vitamin D, some even in the teens and single digits. The anti-sun propagandist with their scare tactics have damaged or diminished the health of millions of Americans for several decades. The only real beneficiaries are the big drug companies who will have a bigger market of sick people to sell drugs to.

    Test Kits for Vitamin D are available from Life Extension Foundation

    The Life Extension Foundation offers a home test kit for vitamin D. It is Item # LC081950 or the Vitamin D Hydroxy 25 Blood Test. The foundations website is The cost is $62.67. You can order a test kit by calling 1-800-208-3444. They provide instructions on where to go locally to have blood sample drawn for the test. The kits are not available in Maryland. Note: Life Extension Foundation recommends taking 5000 i.u. of vitamin D 3 daily for one month before taking the test. They state that 50 ng/ml for vitamin D blood serum levels is an ideal target goal.

    Note: A few people are now taking 10,000 i.u daily of Vitamin D along with Black Seed powder for their health conditions including HIV. I am convinced that Black Seed powder alone [even with honey added] won't do its magic if Vitamin D levels are low (below 30 ng/ml). It will take some time for results of this combination protocol to trickle in, so keep your hopes alive and your powder dry.

    Betulinic Acid from White Birch Bark kills Melanoma cancer cells

    Clin Cancer Res. 2003 Jul;9(7):2866-75. Betulinic acid-induced programmed cell death in human melanoma cells involves mitogen-activated protein kinase activation. Tan Y1, Yu R, Pezzuto JM.

    The following are excerpts from this Abstract -

    "Abstract Betulinic acid, a naturally occurring triterpene found in the bark of the white birch tree, has been demonstrated to induce programmed cell death with melanoma and certain neuroectodermal tumor cells. We demonstrate currently that treatment of cultured UISO-Mel-1 (human melanoma cells) with betulinic acid leads to the activation of p38 and stress activated protein kinase/c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase [widely accepted proapoptotic mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs)] with no change in the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases (antiapoptotic MAPK). Moreover, these results support a link between the MAPKs and reactive oxygen species (ROS). As demonstrated previously, cells treated with betulinic acid generate ROS. Preincubation of cells with antioxidants blocks the process of programmed cell death, and prevents the phosphorylation of p38 and stress activated protein kinase/c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase."

    "These data suggest that ROS act upstream of the MAPKs in the signaling pathway of betulinic acid. In addition to mediating these responses, treatment of cells with betulinic acid resulted in a gradual depolarization of mitochondrial membrane potential, a phenomenon established to contribute to the induction of programmed cell death. Interestingly, p38 was capable of partially modulating this perturbation, and investigations of mitochondria-associated apoptotic events indicate no involvement of known caspases. These data provide additional insight in regard to the mechanism by which betulinic acid induces programmed cell death in cultured human melanoma cells, and it likely that similar responses contribute to the antitumor effect mediated with human melanoma carried in athymic mice."

    Supplement Sources - Betulinic acid comes from the Chaga mushroom that grows on wild white birch trees. It is becomming increasingly popular as an anticancer treatement for melanoma. A search on the internet will reveal several sources. North American Herb and Spice Co has wild crafted Chaga mushroom powder from White Birch trees. They state: "Chaga mushroom contains many beneficial active compounds such as sterols, polyphenols, betulin, and betulinic acid, the benefits of which are well published." A synergistic trio: Chaga mushrooms with betulinic cid, Vitamin D3 and Black Seed powder.

    Note: Being that it is a natural product and is not patentable, it will never be approved by the FDA as the law requires a [synthetic] patentable compound. To treat a disease such as cancer with Chaga, see a health care professional knowledgeable in herbal medicine. Research shows that high doses of anti-oxidants (vitamin C etc) will cancel the benefits of Chaga and also conventional chemotherapy as these remedies release ROS (Radical Oxygen Species] to kill the cancer cells.

    July 1st 2015. The latest Journal of Immunity Vol 13, No 2, focuses on the role of sunlight and vitamin D in health and immune restoration

    Article Summaries: Vitamin D from sunlight improves and restores immune function. Vitamin D as a co-factor with Black Seed to activate its benefits. Case reports - Black Seed improves blood cancer markers. Three case reports for Europe and the United States where Black Seed was used as a monotherapy for HIV for 6 months failed to duplicate the impressive Nigerian studies. Keep Hope Alive's analysis at this stage is that vitamin D levels in the Nigerian HIV patients was likely several times higher than in the US and European test cases and may account for the differences in results.

    Five scientific studies have found a positive correlation between vitamin D and CD4 counts. Studies also found that most persons in the United States with HIV are severely depleted in vitamin D. The same researchers have found that the drugs AZT, efavirenz and tenofovir are linked to lower serum levels of vitamin D.

    June 30, 2015: San Diego, CA. A case report on Sun light exposure increasing CD4 counts over a 3 month period.

    The name Rob is used to protect his identity. I have known Rob for over 20 years - talked with him hundreds of times although we never met in person. He has been HIV+ since 1993. As long as I can remember Rob had CD4 counts in the 250 to 300 range. He has been on the same drug combination for the past 10 years with a non-detectable viral load and no adverse effects. He had been living in Seattle, WA for several years but found the lack of sunshine depressing. He said he usually did not spend more than one hour outdoors daily due to the rainy and cloudy weather in Seattle.

    Last fall he moved to San Diego and began to spend about 3 hours a day outdoors. Within 3 months of his moving to San Diego and spending time outdoors in sunny California, his CD4 count increased about 200 points from 300 to about 500. He said he did not use suntan oil or lotion. There were no changes in his diet or meds. We discussed the 1997 case of Chris Dafoe whose viral load became non-detectable after spending almost 3 months in the jungles of South America with friends. His case was reprinted from Report No 14 and emailed to the Black Seed users group within the past 2 weeks. In 1997 we thought at the time it was the coconut he ate daily that brought his viral load down from 600,000 to non-detectable levels in less than 3 months but now believe his all day exposure to the sun was equally or even more important than his daily consumption of coconuts. His comment to me that he had acquired a nice tan after spending nearly 3 months in the jungle was not printed at the time but I did recall it in the past month while analyzing why test cases did not duplicate the amazing results using Black Seed that was so effective in the Nigerian case studies. It is never too late to find the missing piece to a puzzle, even if it is a puzzle called AIDS, and the Sun in our bright blue sky is the missing piece.

    A six month Black Seed mono-therapy case report from Europe fails to duplicate the Nigerian case studies

    Conrad LeBeau

    A case report from Europe, (relayed by Denis of Croatia last month) where the HIV meds were stopped for 6 months to use Black seed as a mono-therapy failed to duplicate the results of the Nigerian studies by Dr. Onifade et al. After 6 months of using black seed powder mixed with honey (2 or more teaspoons three times a day) CD4 counts were lower than baseline while the viral load for HIV had increased. This occurred even though the person reported he was asymptomatic, had more energy, better lipid blood levels, than before using the black seed. Here is an excerpt -

    May 26th from Denis of Croatia -

    My friend has been taking black seed honey (made by Onifade's recipe) and his new results are worse than ones from the beginning. Somewhere about christmass: CD4 1100 and ViralLoad about 800 This is the time he stopped with meds and started using nigella powder honey New results from may 26: Cd4 300 and VL 150 000

    According to his email, his friend has gone back to using the HIV meds. The disparities in results raises some questions including the following -

    1. Did the Nigerian patients have HIV-1 or HIV-2 in Onifade's study? The HIV-2 strain is known to be disseminated in some parts of the world. Was the strain of HIV in the Nigerian studies HIV-2? [a weaker strain.] June 7th - A search of the medical literature today found both HIV-1 and 2 prevalent in Nigeria. One study found about 60% infected with type 1 and 40% with type 2. This does not answer the question of Onidfade's patients but it is unlikely all his patients had the type 2 HIV virus. Therefore, we need to look at other reasons as to why he got such amazing results with the Black Seed and honey remedy.

    2. Immune System priming with Treatment interruptions: When there are no drugs used, the person’s own immune system is challenged to defend the host. Treatment interruptions both test and challenge the immune system simultaneously to defend against germs, viruses and other pathogens. How many of these Nigerian patients had one or more drug treatment interruptions? How many never used any drugs at all since becomming infected with HIV - leaving the sole defense of their body to their own immune system?

    3. Drug Virgins - There are a handful of cases in the United States where HIV+ persons have refused to take prescribed HIV drugs from the onset. When using the Black Seeds or the Black Seed powder as a mono-therapy, there are several who report rather amazing symptomatic relief like swollen lymph nodes returning to normal, and more energy, in fact, they report most symptoms vanish within 2 or 3 weeks. Is the hypothesis that Black Seed may work better when the immune system is under challenge (attack) a valid one? Do drug virgins respond to the black seed remedy more effectively because their immune system is under challenge?

    4 The Sun – Does Black Seed therapy also require the person to have significant daily exposure to the sun to activate the benefits of using Black Seed? Could the sun have a significant role and be a co-factor in strengthening and balancing the immune response to HIV? In Nigeria, a country closer to the Equator than is either the United States or Europe, Dr. Onifade’s test patients probably received significantly more exposure to the sun than had they lived in either the United States or Europe. Was daily exposure to the sun a factor that helped produce the results reported in the scientific articles he co-authored? Would increasing the levels of vitamin D from exposure to more sunlight or supplementation with vitamin D3 help the immune system in its battle against HIV as it has against other diseases like hepatitis B?

    Finally, did increased daily exposure to sunlight improve the immune response of Onifade's patients even from the onset of his studies where the base line of HIV was surprisingly low - usually less than 50,000 (as measured by pcr)?

    The following abstract published earlier this year raises the possibility that daily sunlight exposure was a co-factor in the Nigerian patients that was missing in the random Black Seed test cases here in the United States and Europe. The following abstract is reprinted in its entirely. [We have not yet obtained the full text article of this study.]

    An update on the association of vitamin D deficiency with common infectious disease.

    Authors - Watkins RR1, Lemonovich TL, Salata RA.


    "Vitamin D plays an important role in modulating the immune response to infections. Deficiency of vitamin D is a common condition, affecting both the general population and patients in health care facilities. Over the last decade, an increasing body of evidence has shown an association between vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk for acquiring several infectious diseases, as well as poorer outcomes in vitamin D deficient patients with infections. This review details recent developments in understanding the role of vitamin D in immunity, the antibacterial actions of vitamin D, the association between vitamin D deficiency and common infections (like sepsis, pneumonia, influenza, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV)), potential therapeutic implications for vitamin D replacement, and future research directions."

    All of the test cases in the Onifade Black Seed studies had unusually low level of HIV infection at the onset of using this remedy. Published studies on the prevalence of HIV-1 and HIV-2 in Nigeria indicate they are about equal with slightly more HIV-1 in the general population. It is plausible to that some of the Nigerian patients had HIV-1 and others HIV-2 and a few may have had both. Considering how much closer to the Equator Nigeria is than Europe or the United States, the Nigerian patients daily exposure to sunlight was probably greater than the individual test cases here in the United States and Europe. Because the research on vitamin D is so exhaustive, and this research supports the need for more vitamin D in many subsets of illnesses, I refer you to this link at Pubmed to read to your hearts content on the association between vitamin D and immunity. It has links to 2292 scientific articles.

    Update June 8th. I located the following article this morning on the status of vitamin D levels in Nigerian children. Although this article shows that Nigerian children spend an average of 8.3 hours a day outdoors, all have vitamin D levels in excess of 10 ng/ml.

    Conclusion - inspite of their dark skin, African children in this study were not deficient in Vitamin D. This also provides proof that inspite of their pigmented skin, Nigerians who spend several hours day outdoors are making vitamin D that impacts their blood serum levels. While this article does not provide positive proof that Onifade's test patients spent 8 plus hours a day outdoors and also had adequate serum levels of vitamin D, this article does show that other Nigerians tested were converting sunlight into vitamin D at adequate levels. [The abstractbelow states that a calcium deficiency, not a vitamin D deficiency, is what contributes to rickets in Nigerian children]

    Absence of vitamin D deficiency in young Nigerian children.

    J Pediatr. 1998 Dec;133(6):740-4.

    Pfitzner MA1, Thacher TD, Pettifor JM, Zoakah AI, Lawson JO, Isichei CO, Fischer PR. Author information Abstract

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in young Nigerian children residing in an area where nutritional rickets is common.

    STUDY DESIGN: A randomized cluster sample of children aged 6 to 35 months in Jos, Nigeria.

    RESULTS: Of 218 children evaluated, no child in the study had a 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) concentration <10 ng/mL (the generally held definition of vitamin D deficiency). Children spent an average of 8.3 hours per day outside of the home. Twenty children (9.2%) had clinical findings of rickets. Children with clinical signs of rickets were more likely to be not currently breast fed and have significantly lower serum calcium concentrations than those without signs of rickets (9.1 vs 9.4 mg/dL, respectively, P =.01). Yet, 25-OHD levels were not significantly different between those children with clinical signs of rickets and those without such clinical signs.

    CONCLUSION: Vitamin D deficiency was not found in this population of young children in whom clinical rickets is common. This is consistent with the hypothesis that dietary calcium insufficiency, without preexisting vitamin D deficiency, accounts for the development of clinical rickets in Nigerian children.

    [Note: I am including this article because of an email I received this morning in response to yesterday's postings on this website on my theory that sunlight and adequate vitamin D levels in Onifade's test patients helped their immune system keep HIV viral loads under 50K and that vitamin D levels resulting from exposure to the sun was a co-factor withthe use of Black Seed in the experiments impressive results.

    Now, here are a few things to consider doing now and taking notes on:

    1. If you are under a doctor's case, ask for a blood serum test of vitamin D levels and while you are at it, ask for selenium levels as well. If you have AIDs or cancer, you want these numbers to be on the upper end of the reference range to maximize their immune enhancing and anti-inflammatory benefits.

    2. If you cannot get 30 minutes or more of daily exposure to the sun from 11 am to 2 pm, then consider 15 to 20 minutes using a sun tanning bed 3 to 5 times a week, or, if you are allergic to sunlight, then take Vitamin D3 as a supplement at 5000 to 10,000 i.u daily while your doctor monitors your blood levels. Take adequate magnesium (500 to 1000 mg daily) to insure proper utilization of the Vitamin D.

    3. Keep track to determine if a rise in blood levels of vitamin D3 (and selenium) correlate to an increase in CD4 counts and a decrease in the viral load while using Black Seed or prescribed meds as a remedy. Note - you can increase selenium levels by eating 4 to 8 Brazil nuts daily - they are the world's richest source of selenium.

    I will have considerably more to say on the subject sunlight, sun tanning and immunity in future postings and in the next Journal of Immunity.

    Update on Patient D - local female with bone cancer I reported about on May 1st on this home page. She told me last week that her CA 27.29 test now indicates it has declined to 45 down from 47 last month. It was 103 last year and gradually declined to 62. When she added Black Seed capsules early in April, it dropped to 47 within 3 weeks. She also undergoes periodic treatments with low dose chemotherapy along with several other protocols. She also says she takes 10,000 i.u. daily of vitamin D3.


    May 15 2015 News and Updates

    United States Dept of Agriculture (USDA) introduces a GMO-free certifcation program for non-GMO foods. The Non - GMO labeling program is voluntary.

    Conrad LeBeau

    The Associated Press (AP) reported in this mornings Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the "Agriculture Department has developed a new government certification and labeling for foods that are free of genetically modified ingredients."

    The certification by the USDA would be voluntary. - Companies that requested this service would have to pay for it. Foods approved for the Non-GMO label would carry a "USDA Process Verified" statement along along with the a label that says they are free of GMOs.

    The Journal article stated that "Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack outlined the new certification in a May 1 letter to USDA employees, saying it was being done at the request of a "leading global company," which he did not identify."

    I have observed two marketing phenomena that are sweeping the country. Within the past two years, there is a growing nationwide movement for mainstream grocery stores to add and expand their list of organic foods. Increasingly, more companies are also placing GMO-free labels on foods they produce and market. Recently "Smart Balance" that makes a buttery spread that competes with margarine has added a "non-gmo"pledge to several of their products and "I Can't Believe it's not Butter" has just also added a non-gmo label to one of their products. Many private companies also use a label developed by a nonprofit organization called the Non-GMO Project. The organic label also verifies that the food is GMO free as GMO ingredients are prohibited from being used in foods that are certified as Organic.

    The AP article in the Journal Sentinel also wrote that -

    Gary Hirshberg, chairman of the Just Label It campaign and co-founder of the organic yogurt company Stonyfield Farm, said the labels were a small step in the right direction but more is needed. "Mandatory labeling of GMOs would allow consumers to vote with their dollars and have a say in the type of agriculture they would like to see in this country," Hirshberg said.

    Phone Calls and Emails from the Black Seed Users Group

    I receive emails from anxious readers who wonder if the dose they are taking is sufficient. At this juncture, every dose anyone uses is experimental. Based on 6 out of 6 cases, the only consensus so far is to not use the black seed oil as the results are disappointing. Doses being used range from 1.5 teaspoons of the powder which is about 3 grams in one case to 6000 mg (6 grams) in another case to 4 teaspoons (8 grams) of the powder twice a day in another case.

    The person taking 6 grams daily takes 5 capsules of the Swanson Vitamin Black Seed powder capsules 3 times a day with meals. So far everyone reports that the use of Black Seed is well tolerated. Black seed users report their symptoms are going away and they feel better. However, lab results from persons using black seed powder as a mono-therapy for 3 months or longer are lacking. Two persons who are using black seed as a mono-therapy emailed their results after 30 days and the CD4 counts declined in both cases, which was not unexpected. We are waiting for follow up test results and in particular at the 3 month mark. In some cases in the African studies, the CD4 counts initially declined then rebounded a few month later.

    My theory on why this is happening is that Black Seed is more effective as an immune modulator for HIV than as a strict anti-viral. By balancing the Th1/Th2 branches of the immune system and restoring normal immune function, Black Seed therapy may eventually enable the body to handle the virus without prescribed drugs. The anti-AIDS and anti-cancer effects of Black Seed are most likely due to its ability to correct deficiencies and defects in the immune system.

    Some tests that are not being done to measure the effects of Black Seed and other immune modulators are Natural Killer Cell Function, antigen presentation, interleukin 6 levels (il-6) Delayed Type Hypersensitivity - type 4 and DCH for the skin prick test that measures the immune system's reaction to a foreign protein or virus. IL-6 is an inflammatory immune protein that is elevated in AIDS, cancer, hepatitis and many other chronic conditions. Tests for selenium levels, Glutathione and oxidative stress are also important markers for the body's defense against inflammation that is associated with elevated IL-6, C-reactive protein and Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). Note - Chapter 3 of the Immune Restoration Handbook has detailed information on Immune Diagnostic tests and a list of immune modulators are provided.

    The best initial lab results being reported are when Black Seed is used along with prescribed Meds. An example is a female from Harlem, NY, who used prescribed meds and black seed powder for 2 months. She used 4 teaspoons of the powder which she mixed in water or juice and took this twice a day with meals along with her HIV drugs. The result after 2 months was an increase in CD4 counts from 390 to 600 and a decrease in viral load from 21000 to 300. However, these number alone do not tell us how extensive the immune restoration is or if the CD4/CD8 ratio has improved or returned to a normal reference range. A normal range would be from 1.0 to 2.0 - an average being 1.6.

    The reader from Harlem did not know what the CD8 absolute number was and did not know what the CD4/ CD8 ratio was either or the importance of these lab numbers.

    Note and updated suggestions: It would be prudent for persons with a CD4 count below 200 to stay on a combination of the prescribed meds and the Black Seed for 3 months or longer until the CD4 counts are above 300 before dropping the HIV meds and going solo with the Black Seed powder. The 90 day period of using Black Seed with the HIV meds is to allow for some immune restoration to take place before the antiviral drugs are stopped or interrupted. Otherwise, you may see a spike in the viral load and a decline in the CD4 counts.

    For those diehards who won't use any HIV meds, I would suggest starting off with a higher dose of Black Seed powder from 6000 mg (6 grams) or even more. Five Swanson Black Seed caps 3 times a day would provide 6 grams as would 4 Amazing Herbs Black Seed caps 3 times a day. For the users of the powder - one level measuring teaspoon is about 2 grams. Doing the math - that would be one tsp with meals 3 times a day.

    Why paying attention to the CD8 counts and the CD4/CD8 ratio is important in HIV/AIDS.

    It is important to remember that AIDS is a condition of imbalance and exhaustion of the immune system, not simply a viral infection. The immune system's initial response to the HIV virus is to flip or invert the CD4/ CD8 ratio. An example of a normal before HIV immune status is a CD4 count of 800 and a CD8 count of 500. If you divide 800 by 500, you get 1.6 and that is a normal CD4/CD8 ratio.

    After HIV infection, you might get the opposite - a CD4 count of 400 and a CD8 count of 800. When you divide 400 by 800 it is 0.5 or one-half. 0.5 give or take 4 points is a set of numbers that indicates active HIV infection somewhere in the body, probably in the lymph nodes. In Dr. Onifade's et al studies in Nigeria, we were not given information on the CD4/CD8 ratios and how black seed therapy changed those ratios. In my opinion, of the 6 reported cures of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, none of these cures would be possible without a return to a normal CD4/ CD8 ratio. This because CD8 cytotoxic lymphocytes are activated to control and suppress HIV activity. Since many of the CD4 cells as the generals of the immune system are infected, there activity is thus suppressed. Except for a few rare cases, the immune response does not clear the virus from the body.

    The TH2 response is the antibody branch of the immune system. Unless the immune system is balanced TH1/TH2, and activated, the persons is susceptible to a wide range of infections and cancers. Most of the immune system is in the peyer's patches and lymph nodes of the intestines. It is in the byproducts of digestion where most of the HIV viruses are activated. In the past, we found that a diet high in fiber and probiotics produced stools that were large in diameter and floated on water in the toilet bowl. Those whose stools were large in diameter and floated had rising CD4 cells counts and those whose stools were small in diameter sank had declining CD4 counts. (The small diameter stools indicate inflammation in the intestines and the sinkers indicate too much unfriendly flora like e-coli and candida). Natural sources of probiotics include raw bee pollen, raw cabbage, raw vegetables, yogurt, kefir, raw apple cider vinegar and kombuchu tea.

    Next update June 1st

    May 1, 2015 News

    West Allis, WI. Black Seed powder reported to have improved blood cancer markers in a local patient.

    On April 27, a local female cancer patient (Patient D) told Keep Hope Alive that she has been treated for bone cancer with chemotherapy since July of 2014. Patient D who walks with a cane and is in her 50's said that she has osteocarcinoma (bone cancer). She said her oncologist has been tracking her progress with a blood test called CA 27.29. Last summer this marker was 103 and with chemotherapy it has dropped to 62.

    However, on April 7th, she added 3 Black Seed powder capsules taken twice a day to her chemotherapy regimen. A follow up test 14 days later showed the CA 27.29 marker had dropped from 62 to 47. This is an encouraging sign indicating that the cancer activity was declining. In, they report that "CA 27.29 is a mucus-containing protein that is produced by the MUC-1 gene." Breast cancer cells and some other types of cancers will shed copies of the CA 27.29 protein into the bloodstream. When CA 27.29 numbers decline it indicates the cancer is less active or declining and that the treatment is probably working.

    She (patient D) continues using the Black Seed powder along with the chemotherapy and will have a follow up test in another 2 weeks. She told me she also started taking 800 mcg daily of Phytosel - a plant based selenium distributed by about the same time. Selenium's role in the prevention and treatment of cancer is well documented with numerous scientific citations in the Immune Restoration Handbook.

    However, in our conversation, she said she thought it was the Black Seed capsules that contributed to the decline in her cancer blood markers leaving her hopeful that more good news will follow.

    Immunology - Dispelling Myths about HIV by Jay Levy

    Jay Levy from the University of California in San Francisco authored an article on the immunology of HIV progressions that discusses the role of innate immunity in controlling the virus. His article was published in Trends in Bimolecular Medicine. The article Dispelling myths and focusing on notable concepts in HIV is worth reading.

    37 people are now on our Black Seed mailing. list. So far, a total of six persons have reported that they were disappointed with the black seed oil and have switched to the black seed powder. No one to date has reported satisfactory results using the oil. Also, lab results trickle in slowly, and at a pace we do not control. We will report them as they arrive. I note that protocols from various readers almost never duplicate each other exactly. A majority mix conventional medical treatments with Black Seed powder and other natural remedies. This confuses how to interpret the many positive results reported.

    It is notable that no one on our email list has reported that the black seed powder did not help them. The few who are using black seed powder as a monotherapy are urged to update us frequently with their results. One reader wrote that he thought that buying the whole seeds and grinding them with a coffee grinder would produce the best results. Another reader was sceptical of the quality of some of Swanson's products due to their rock bottom prices.

    Another reader wrote recently that he found the Life Extension Foundation distributes Black Seed powder in capsules. This now makes 4 sources for the capsules - the other three being,, and Northern Herb and Spice Co. ......................Next update May 15th

    A short summary of supplements and drugs used by readers since 1994 and reported on this website to increase CD4 helper cell counts. This summary was sent to a reader who decided to try the Black Seed powder remedy for HIV.

    To (name withheld) I do remember talking to you last fall while you were in New York and homeless. If I was in your shoes, I would use both the black seed - 1 tsp of powder in water or fruit juice twice a day, and the prescribed HIV meds, at least until my CD4 count was 200 or higher before dropping the meds. and going solo on the Black Seed powder. I've read that when your CD4 count get real low, like yours, it takes a long time for them to come back or increase dramatically.

    However, there are some remedies printed at that do this and there are 20 years of writings here - a ton on information on immune restoration and increasing CD4 counts for anyone who takes the time to explore it. Here are a few off the top of my head ideas to increase CD4 Counts. To learn more - go to and type in the first word in bold lettering into the Search Box at the top of the right column. Add the search term "CD4" without the quotes may help you select more relevant links. Search each of the 18 items listed below. Be creative - try this search term "increases CD4 counts" with the quotes included. Plan to spend a few hours reading and taking notes.

    1. Thymus tablets - dissolve one daily under the tongue

    2. Zinc supplementation - 50 mg zinc once daily or eat a handful of pumpkin seeds.

    3. Castor oil - one teaspoon daily by mouth or do castor oil packs over the liver once day

    4. Sun tanning until you get a nice brown tan or take up to 5000 units daily of vitamin D3.

    5. Maitake mushrooms - 3 to 6 capsules daily

    6. Iquilia - homeopathic remedy ordered from Austria . This low cost remedy increased CD4 counts rapidly but when used with HIV meds. Without HIV meds, it had little effect. To date, Iquilia has not yet been tested with the use of Black Seed powder.

    7. Prednisone - 10 mg daily in the AM (prescribed anti-inflammatory)

    8. Naltrexone - 3 to 4.5 mg once daily before bedtime.

    9. Astragalus - chinese herb - take 1000 mg daily

    10 Whey protein - 10 to 20 grams dissolved in fruit juice once a day. - increases glutathione levels

    11. Plant based selenium - 4 Brazil nuts daily or take Phytosel - two tablets 200 mcg each twice a day (Total 800 mcg daily) or use a selenium product derived from yeast. (there are no live yeast in these products). Selenium derived from plants including yeast increase immunity to candida albicans and pathogenic fungal activity.

    12. Black seed powder - 1 tsp in fruit juice twice day or 3 or 4 capsules twice day.

    13. Solgar Brewer's yeast powder (it is grown in blackstrap molasses) - a potent source of natural B vitamins, DNA and RNA, trace minerals, protein, and phyto-nutrients. This product does not contain live yeast and increases immunity to candida albicans and pathogenic fungal activity.

    14. Raw garlic - 1 clove on rye bread or crackers three times day.

    15. Coconut oil and/or eating cultured or pickled foods.

    16. Probiotics - L. Plantarum and or L. Rhamnosus.

    17. A High fiber raw food diet will get your stools to float on water (See the Immune Restoration Handbook section on diet). In one survey we done in the early 1990's we found that when the stools float, the CD4 counts rise and when the stools sink, the CD4 counts would also drop.

    18. Follow a hypoallergenic diet if possible. (common food allergens are pasteurized milk products like ice cream and milk, also eggs, soy, sugar and refined sweets, too much chocolate, gluten from wheat and white pasta and breads, GMO corn and soy. Search common food allergens at

    Avoid toxic foods and common food sensitivities and to much sugar. Sugar, corn syrup and soda depress the white blood cells and immune response. Hard liquor also depress the immune response. Beer that is naturally brewed does not depress the immune response and is a source of B vitamins and beta glucan.

    Walking and water. Don't walk on water unless you are Jesus. Taking long slow walks while exposing your skin to the sun and drinking lots of clean water detoxifies the body and helps to rebuild the immune system.

    Note: Norvir - a prescription drug that is used to boost HIV med treatments - ask to add Norvir (100 mg) once or twice a day to boost the immune response that includes DTH type 4. Naturally almost no one will do all the above, so read the published research and do what you can fit into your budget and schedule. Take Care. Conrad.

    Note: Sources of Black Seed powder capsules. "Blackseed Plus" product in capsules is also available from Northern Herb and Spice Co.

    As for the Black Seed Oil, two sources have reported that Black Seed oil from Saudi Arabia has the most therapeutic value. The oil from Saudi Arabia is reported to have a dark oil and a more bitter taste than the oil from other countries. Since all the black seed oil used in the 5 HIV cases did not come from Saudi Arabia, and did not have noticeable benefits, I located a source of Saudi Arabian black Seed oil from the and ordered a small sample for testing purposes.

    A local cancer patient (Donna) who has osteocarcinoma (bone cancer) recently added Blackseed powder and plant based selenium to her daily regimen. She is taking 3 Amazing Herbs Blackseed powder capsules twice daily along with two Phytosel Natural Selenium tablets each containing 200 mcg of natural selenium. Results will be followed.

    Note that most selenium supplements sold in health food stores and drug stores are syntheticly made and not derived from either plant or animal. L seleno-methionine is not of natural or plant origin and should be avoided due to a lack of safety studies. Adverse effects from using seleno-methionine in doses above 200 mcg daily have been reported on this website.

    Use the search box in the right column and enter the word phytosel, to learn more about this plant based selenium derived from Indian mustard greens. Other plant based selenium sources include Brazil Nuts and yeast grown selenium. Selenium supplements labeled "yeast free" are usually synthetic in origin and should be avoided.

    World Health Organization officials announced on Friday that the active ingredient in Monsanto's herbicide Roundup was "classified as probably carcinogenic to humans." The announcement was made by the WHO's cancer arm, the International Agency for the Research on Cancer. The agency had examined glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, according to Reuters.

    In addition, the group said there was "limited evidence" that glyphosate could cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Monsanto responded by saying the scientific data did not support the WHO finding and called the group to hold a urgent meeting over the matter. Read more here

    Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) – A review of the scientific literature finds unparalleled therapeutic potential for many health conditions

    Conrad LeBeau

    More than 600 scientific articles published in medical journals support the hypothesis that black seed has a range of medical and potential medical benefits possibly unparalleled in the history of medicinal herbs. In the last two issues of this journal, we have written about the use and benefits of Black Seed powder in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. More than 60 cases have been written about in medical journals where HIV+ persons used Black Seed powder and increased CD4 counts while a majority reduced their viral loads to non-detectable levels in about 4 months. Also, six outright cures are reported in published studies where sustained sero-conversions have occurred.

    We are also interested in finding out if this low cost remedy will cure Hepatitis C and cancer. Standard treatments for cancer cost $10,000 or more per month, and there is reported to be a $86,000 cure for hepatitis C ( Of course, these patented remedies are FDA approved and the market monopolies thus created are protected by FDA attorneys with their regulatory schemes.

    In this report, we will review the published scientific research on the use of Nigella Sativa for a wide range of other illnesses and conditions as well as new developments in case reports. An article (1) published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine in May of 2013 offers one of the most thorough reviews of the scientific literature on black seed research and its therapeutic potential that has ever been published. [This article is now posted at as a full text scientific article. Depending on the font size you use– it prints out anywhere from 15 to as much as 38 pages.]

    A Review on therapeutic potential of Nigella sativa: A miracle Herb” is written by Aftab Ahmad, and 7 of his cohorts from Saudi Arabia and India. The article is referenced by 117 scientific citations on clinical studies, experiments, and research of Black Seed’s medicinal properties. In their review, they reported Nigella Sativa is a widely used plant in traditional systems of medicine including Unani, Tibb, Ayurveda and Siddha. In the Tibb-e-Nabwi (Prophetic Medicine) its use has been recommended on a regular basis. Historically, black seed as a medicine. It has also been used as a spice for seasoning for soups, breads, and pickles.

    1. Asian Pac J Trop Biomed. 2013 May;3(5):337-52 Nigella Sativa’s Historical use as a Medicine.

    In the Asian Pac J Trop Biomed, A Ahmad et al state: “The seeds of N. sativa are widely used in the treatment of various diseases like bronchitis, asthma, diarrhea, rheumatism and skin disorders. It is also used as liver tonic, digestive, anti-diarrheal, appetite stimulant, emmenagogue, to increase milk production in nursing mothers to fight parasitic infections, and to support immune system.”

    On its therapeutic properties, the Biomed article states: “N. sativa has been extensively studied for its biological activities and therapeutic potential and shown to possess wide spectrum of activities viz. as diuretic, antihypertensive, antidiabetic, anticancer and immunomodulatory, analgesic, antimicrobial, anthelmintics, analgesics and anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic, bronchodilator, gastroprotective, hepatoprotective, renal protective and antioxidant properties.”

    Active compounds in black seeds include a long list of scientific names like thymoquinone, P-cymene, carvacrol, and saponin a potential anti-cancer agent. Listing 100 or more scientific names won’t mean a lot to the average reader. With more than 100 compounds identified in the literature, I decided not to list them here. They are listed in the full text article on our website. Unlike single compounds that are patented, whole black seed is one impressive collection of pharmacological chemicals in unique proportions to one another that no scientist has ever duplicated.

    Black seed as a folk remedy

    Black seeds have a long history of use in Indian and Arabian civilizations as both a food and a medicine. A. Ahmad reports on the traditional the use of black seed for “respiratory system, digestive tract, kidney and liver function, cardio vascular system and immune system support, as well as for general well-being.” The seeds have also been used traditionally for asthma, bronchitis, rheumatism, and other inflammatory diseases.

    [The full review article will be published in the next issue of the Journal of Immunity and should be available here online by April 1st. By then, I hope to have some updated results on the use of black seed powder in the treatment of HIV.]

    Therapeutic doses used in case studies reported thus far range from 500 mg of black seed powder per 25 pounds of body weight to double that amount used in some of the Nigerian studies. In other words, a person weighing 150 lbs would use 3 capsules or more twice daily - usually with meals. A higher dose could be 3 capsules taken 3 times a day with meals. Based on body weight, a 100 lb person would take a total of 2 capsules twice a day (4 total) each day and a 200 lb person would take 4 twice a day (8 total). When the seed powder is used, a level measuring teaspoon equals about 1900 to 2000 mg or about 4 capsules when using the original formula. There are many other good sources available on the internet that anyone can locate with their search engine. As the saying goes - Google it. ]

    Dr Ahmed's article in the Asian Pac J. Trop Biomed. 2013 May;3(5):337-52 Nigella Sativa's Historical use as a medicine is now available here as a full text scientific article. For all full text articles published on this website, use the link in the green column on the right or click here.

    Other news: Our supply of Miraculous Water from San Damiano, Italy, ran out about 6 weeks ago. Even though we have a tracking number, a shipment of San Damiano water to us has been lost somewhere in the U.S. mail. We have requested another shipment while attempts to trace the Feb. 1st shipment have been undertaken with the Italian postal service in San Damiano. At this point, we don't know when we will have more water to ship out. When we do, we will post a notice here and at our page for ordering books and other religious articles.

    FDA vs. me. My legal tussle with the FDA over whether they should continue to have the legal authority to classify foods as drugs based solely on their intended use to prevent or mitigate disease is still being reviewed by Federal Judge Charles Clevert. It is now 2 years and counting, and there is still no indication that a decision will be coming anytime soon. Justice delayed is justice denied.

    March 1, 2015 Report - Dr Moskowitz critically evaluates mandatory vaccines

    An article in Health Impact News by Richard Moskowitz MD discusses "The Case against Immunizations." Dr. Moskowitz discusses his views and experiences as a practicing physician. What follows is an excerpt and a link to the original article. The article also has links to 13 additional health care professionals who have written treatises questioning the safety of some of today's vaccines.

    By Richard Moskowitz, M. D.

    "For the past ten years or so, I have felt a deep and growing compunction against giving routine vaccinations to children. It began with the fundamental belief that people have the right to make that choice for themselves. But eventually the day came when I could no longer bring myself to give the shots, even when the parents wished me to. I have always believed that the attempt to eradicate entire microbial species from the biosphere must inevitably upset the balance of Nature in fundamental ways that we can as yet scarcely imagine. Such concerns loom ever larger as new vaccines continue to be developed, seemingly for no better reason than that we have the technical capacity to make them, and thereby to demonstrate our right and power as a civilization to manipulate the evolutionary process itself.

    "Purely from the viewpoint of our own species, even if we could be sure that the vaccines were harmless, the fact remains that they are compulsory, that all children are required to undergo them, without sensitivity or proper regard for basic differences in individual susceptibility, to say nothing of the values and wishes of the parents and the children themselves. Most people can readily accept the fact that, from time to time, certain laws may be necessary for the public good that some of us strongly disagree with. But the issue in this case involves nothing less than the introduction of foreign proteins or even live viruses into the bloodstream of entire populations.

    "For that reason alone, the public is surely entitled to convincing proof, beyond any reasonable doubt, that artificial immunization is in fact a safe and effective procedure, in no way injurious to health, and that the threat of the corresponding natural diseases remains sufficiently clear and urgent to warrant the mass inoculation of everyone, even against their will if necessary. Unfortunately, such proof has never been given; and even if it could be, continuing to employ vaccines against diseases that are no longer prevalent or dangerous hardly qualifies as an emergency." - See the entire article at: Health Impact News

    Today's Medical Care by Ronald Peters MD
    The Problem: The “Medical Model” – Focus on Disease

    American medicine is based on the “medical model”: when you get sick, you go to the doctor and it is the doctor’s responsibility to find out what is wrong with you and give you the right medicine to make the problem go away. This simplistic approach was birthed in the first half of the twentieth century when infections were the most common medical problems. The discovery of penicillin allowed doctors to give a “magic pill” that cured infections such as pneumonia. At that moment the drug industry was born as well as the “medical model” of care and both are thriving to this day.

    The “medical model” works well for infections, but not for the chronic diseases that plague modern society. High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, depression and many more are diseases of lifestyle and mind style, not infections. These “diseases of civilization” were not found nearly as much in the past and they do not respond to the medical model of “take a pill and make it go away”. Drugs do not cure these problems; they most often only reduce the symptoms and must be taken for a long time, often indefinitely and often with side-effects.

    The medical model of healthcare costs us 1.4 trillion dollars annually, which is 14% of our current overall budget. This amount is expected to double in the next 8 years to 3 trillion dollars. In spite of this enormous expense, the United States ranks 12th out of 13 industrial nations recently compared using 16 health indicators, such as life expectancy and age-adjusted mortality. In other words, we spend more and get less.

    In addition, there side-effects to the “medical model”, Dr Barbara Starfield of John Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health published an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association in July of 2000 which showed the following number of deaths per year due to medical practice in the USA: 12,000 die from unnecessary surgery 7,000 die due to medication errors in hospitals 20,000 die from other errors in hospitals 80,000 die from infections acquired in hospitals 106,000 die due to non-error, negative effects of drug therapy The total is 225,000 people dying each year from modern medical practice. Iatrogenic disease is the scientific term used for “doctor caused” health problems.

    Although not listed in the CDC 10 leading causes of death in the USA, iatrogenic causes of death ranks number three behind heart disease and cancer:

    Heart disease 852,486

    Cancer 553,888

    Iatrogenic causes 225,000

    Stroke 180,074

    The American medical system is sick. Complex chronic illnesses cannot be properly treated with 10 minute office visits and expensive symptomatic medications. The drug industry has undue influence in basic research and doctor prescribing patterns, while federal and state regulators too often succumb to the powerful directives of big business. Read the rest of Dr Peters article here.

    Black Seed Powder (Nigella Sativa) Updates:

    In February, Patient P's wife who is from Illinois said her husband who has consistently used Black Seed oil along with anti-hiv drugs (Norvir, Reyataz and Truvada) since Sept 2014 was disappointed in the latest lab test for the CD4 counts. The latest test after more than 4 months of using the black seed oil along with the hiv meds is that her husbands CD4 counts slightly decreased from 105 to 104 although the viral load is non-detectable. He has decided to discontinue the black seed oil and switch to black seed powder capsules* ( 3 twice a day) along with neem leaf capsules* (2 twice a day) while continuing on the anti-hiv meds to see if this will increase the CD4 counts. The lab test are done only once every 3 months.

    *Patient R (Aron) protocol. He continues on his mono-therapy regimen of 3 black seed powder capsules twice a day and two Neem Leaf caps that are taken along with the Black Seed Powder. Aron stated he would get new lab tests sometime in March (later this month). He has not taken any HIV meds since July of 2014.

    Micaell Thomson of Denmark emailed his latest tests that were basically unchanged. His HIV status remains positive in his 4th month of using Black seed powder therapy (started Oct 13, 2014) with CD4 counts about 600 and a non-detectable viral load. To reach Micaell Thomson, send an email to him here if you want to follow his latest protocol and results.

    Case M from Europe. M has written that she has abandoned the use of the black seed oil that failed to increase her CD4 counts and will soon be starting the use of black seed powder to treat her HIV condition. Due to her confidentiality request, we will not provide an email link or more information at this time.

    There are other emails we receive from persons who are trying or considering the use of Black Seed powder for HIV, HCV, cancer, and other conditions with a surprising number of these emails coming from foreign countries (Europe, South Africa and one from Nigeria). Suggestion: to locate sources on the web, use your search engine with this term. "nigella sativa powder" Sometimes it is also called "Black Cumin Powder" but its botanical name "nigella sativa" must also appear on the label to be the real thing. The powder is black (not brown) and has a peppery taste. We welcome your comments and maintain strict confidentiality of all emails unless you write to us and indicate otherwise.

    Vaccines, Measles and the Media

    Conrad LeBeau
    The current mass media campaign to frighten the general public into getting vaccinated is to stop the spread of measles that has now affected over 100 children. However, measles, even if it were an epidemic, is no more of a threat to the public safety than the seasonal flu.

    Several politicians are now pandering for media support including Hillary Clinton who said of vaccinations: "the sky is blue - the world is round" - suggesting that all vaccines are safe. What the sky being blue and the world being round has to due with the question of whether or not vaccines are safe is a connection I cannot figure out, but it tells me something about Hillary Clinton's absolute trust in the infallibility of federal employees at the CDC, FDA and NIH. She also happens to believe in the safety of GMOs - genetically modified foods. Tony Fauci of NIAID has called MMR a no-brainer. Tell that to the parents of children who became austic after they received the MMR vaccine. (MMR stands for Measles - Mumps - Rubella.)

    Live Attenuated Viruses in MMR

    Notice the words "LIVE" and "ATTENUATED" in an actual photo of the MMR vaccine vial on the left. That is definitely not sterile. The word "attenuated" means the viruses in the vaccine are still living but in a diluted or weakened state. What the "experts" do not consider is that even a weakened virus that gets inside a person with an immune system that does not produce neutralizing antibodies, it could linger as a chronic infection and could cause problems in various parts of the body like the intestinal tract. The intestinal tract, in particular, is where lymph nodes reside that contain most of our immune system with millions of white blood cells.

    A chronic infection in the intestinal tract, and worse yet, one that reaches the brain or crosses the blood brain barrier could become a lifelong problem as in autism, intestinal disorders, or an inflammation that impairs brain function. Why does a virus have to be "live" to be effective? A virus that is killed quickly leaves dead proteins intact that could safely be injected allowing the immune system to produce neutralizing antibodies without the risk of creating a lifelong chronic infection that occurs in some recipients. Researchers need to get to work to produce safer vaccines.

    [The Flu vaccine that is administered in the nasal membranes is a safer method than injection as it allows immune cells in the mucus membranes to react with the foreign antigens and produce antibodies. This method also reduces the risk of severe allergic reactions that can sometimes be fatal with injections.]

    Recently, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the NIAID stated in an interview on public television that the Ebola vaccine could not give you Ebola as the viruses in the experimental vaccine are dead. He cannot say this about all the vaccines currently being used. Does that mean, Dr. Fauci, that there is a risk to the public to inject them with live (attenuated, diluted, crippled or partially dead) viruses? Your answer please: ( ) It should be noted that since Dr Fauci believes that a sterile or dead Ebola virus can give you immunity against its live counterpart, then why should any live viruses be used in any vaccine?

    There are plenty of cases in the history of vaccines where live viruses either were deliberately used or accidentally ended up in vaccines. These include the famous hepatitis B vaccine given to hundreds of gay men in the United States in the early 1980's - a vaccine that was co-infected with HIV. As a result of these nationwide vaccinations, the HBV vaccine spread the HIV virus into every major city in the United States.

    About the same time, the World Health Organization (WHO) innoculated millions of Africans with the Small Pox vaccine that was also co-infected with the HIV virus. Collectively, these millions of vaccinations spread AIDS to millions of people and directly caused millions of deaths. It is one of history's ugliest coverups. If it was an accident, it indicated incompetence that had the most severe of consequences; if it was done deliberately, it was genocide and mass murder.

    The following excerpt is taken from an article about dirty vaccines printed in April, 2001, in Positive Health News - Report No 22. The newsletter can be read in its entirety on this website.

    April , 2001 - from Positive Health News, Report No 22 - a reprint
    Unsterilized vaccines linked to digestive disorders and food allergies in children

    "What is an unsterilized vaccine? Most vaccines used today in hospitals are unsterilized (dirty) because they contain live or attenuated viruses. This practice, that has been going on for decades, has already infected over 20 million Americans with SV40, a simian virus scientists have linked to cancer. According to medical reseracher, J. Beldekas, SV40 may cause Alzheimer’s in millions of baby boomers about to retire. He said this virus is linked to dementia in monkeys that have symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s. Already, Alzheimer’s is an epidemic in the United States with 4 millions cases and growing. Where did SV40 come from? It came from the live oral Salk vaccine for polio given in the late 1950’s to around 1962. In fact, in March, 2001, Peter Jennings of ABC News ran a special report on SV40 and the debate on its adverse effects ongoing within the scientific community.

    In 1976, the US Public Health Service wanted Americans to get vaccinations to protect them from the “Swine Flu,” an epidemic that never materialized. Several of our readers have told us that they acquired “CFIDS” as a result of the Swine Flu vaccination and have never been normal since.

    In 1981, a vaccine to prevent Hepatitis B was given to hundreds of gay people in the US that was contaminated with the HIV virus and spread the AIDS virus all over the country while the World Health Organization gave millions in Africa small pox vaccinations also contaminated with HIV that spread the disease all over the continent of Africa. (See the London Times article). But it doesn’t end there; within the past few months, I have spoken to 3 different parents of who said they have traced the current health problems of their children to recent vaccinations. These health conditions include food allergies and intolerances.

    The solution to this ongoing problem of causing illnesses with vaccinations is for the Food and Drug Administration to stop allowing pharmaceutical companies to market “dirty vaccines.” All the pharmaceutical companies have to do is to pass their vaccines through a flat glass tube subjected to a high intensity ultraviolet light and this will kill all the live viruses and mycoplasmas in the vaccine and leave them in a pristine form so the same immunological protections can be passed on to the patient without the risk of acquiring a permanent new life long infection.

    Many parents have traced the health problems of their children to vaccinations for MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) as well as other vaccinations. Many children develop chronic digestive disorders within their first 6 months of life after they receive multiple vaccinations. These vaccines are recommended by physicians with the full backing of hospitals and the US government. In fact, the United States may end up, if we haven’t already done so, with millions of chronically-ill handicapped children because arrogant and short-sighted decision makers at the top impose their medical views on the population and do so with a lack of understanding of the serious adverse consequences of the vaccines they endorse.

    They are unaware of how to make a safe vaccine that is sterile and still protect children without subjecting them to new infections that come from the vaccine itself. Haven’t any of them heard of how water and blood can be disinfected with ultraviolet light?

    The problem of children being infected with new illnesses from dirty vaccines could also be avoided if the principle of “transfer factor” from the mother’s breast milk to her child was understood and applied. If a mother want to immunize her child without putting the child at risk of acquiring a new infection from a unsterilized vaccine (dirty vaccine), then she should get the MMR shots and all the other vaccinations herself while she is pregnant or even while she is breast feeding the child. Her developed immune system will produce all the necessary immune factors to resist these diseases and transfer them to her child through her breast milk. This filtering system will provide her child with a clean vaccination, via orally the breast milk. It is unhumane and unconscionable to give these dirty vaccines to babies with undeveloped immune systems. Is there anyone at the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, DC, with enough brains to figure this out?

    My suggestions to readers as regards vaccines: Do not obtain any vaccination, except under life threatening emergency conditions, unless the physician or hospital obtains from the pharmaceutical company a letter that is signed by a company official that the vaccine in question is sterile and does not contain any live viruses, mycoplasmas or other pathogenic agents. Second, insist on a small vial of the vaccine for personal storage for future testing in the event they lied to you and your child gets sick so you can go to court and sue the pants off of them.

    Mothers: Always breast feed your children. Do not deprive them of a normal immune system by giving them “formula.” Mothers who breast feed their children transfer their acquired immunity."

    The London Times is one of many sources that reported the link between the small pox vaccine and HIV in an article published on May 11, 1987. The article quotes Dr Robert Gallo who told the Times:

    'The link between the WHO programme and the epidemic in Africa is an interesting and important hypothesis. 'I cannot say that it actually happened, but I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV.'

    However, the dormant HIV virus Dr. Gallo referred to had to be in the smallpox vaccine as it was not already in the general population of persons immunized by WHO. The article also states:

    "Although no detailed figures are available, WHO information indicated that the Aids league table of Central Africa matches the concentration of vaccinations. The greatest spread of HIV infection coincides with the most intense immunization programmes , with the number of people immunized being as follows: Zaire 36,878,000; Zambia 19,060,000; Tanzania 14,972,000; Uganda 11,616,000; Malawai 8,118,000; Rwanda 3,382,000 and Burundi 3,274,000. Brazil, the only South American country covered in the eradication campaign, has the highest incidence of Aids in that region. About 14,000 Haitians, on United Nations secondment to Central Africa, were covered in the campaign."

    Killing viruses in dirty vaccines with ultraviolet light or H2O2

    There are other methods of dealing with viruses in dirty vaccines. One is to use oral hydrogen peroxide before, during and for a few days after receiving a vaccination or to use the bath method with H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) added to the water as I described in the current issue of the Journal of Immunity. I also described this method in the Immune Restoration Handbook and my booklet on the use of Hydrogen Peroxide and Aloe Vera Home Remedies. There are other anti-virals that could also be considered. The other major problem with vaccinations are severe and sometimes fatal allergic reactions. The first 24 hours after receiving a vaccination are critical. Parents should watch their children for signs of breathing difficulty or severe discomfort. If in doubt, check the pulse rate - if it is over 90 beats per minute or the child feels cold or clammy, take them to the Emergency Room of your local hospital and ask them about your child's condition, and to check for a possible severe allergic reaction to the vaccination. Ask for an immediate antidote to turn off the allergic response. Before agreeing to have your child receive a vaccination, ask the doctor or the local Health Dept if they have an antidote for an allergic reaction.

    This is important because a few months ago in neighboring Waukesha County here in Wisconsin, a teenage girl was given the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus vaccine) and within 48 hours she was dead. The medical examiner said she died from an overdose of anti-histamines. Was this the real cause of her death or was it a cover up? The unanswered question here is: what caused this girl to take so much antihistamines in the first place after she received the HPV vaccine? Did the HPV vaccine cause an allergic reaction that in turn caused her take an overdose of antihistamines? Was it really the antihistamines that killed her or was it anaphylactic shock - the most severe allergic reaction possible caused by the HPV vaccine? We cannot get her side of the story as she died.

    A local friend, R. Boda, told me of a cousin who was going to college and had a bright future ahead, then she who got a vaccination for Meningitis and within 24 hours, she was dead. Is there any wonder that millions of people no longer trust the federal government and their parade of "experts." Trust yes, but you must first earn trust by telling the public the truth and stop hiding your failures. The government cannot even protect us from unsafe airbags in cars that have exploded and killed several people. Stop lying to the public to protect the backside of your biggest political contributors from Wall St.

    Two candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination have defended the rights of parents to decide whether or not to vaccinate their children. This includes Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky who is himself a medical doctor. For this, both candidates have gotten a lot of flack from the press.

    Feb 1, 2015 Update Report

    Conrad LeBeau
    Milwaukee, WI. Patient R (Aron) whose case we have followed since August started a job this past week as voice recognition interpreter. Aron told me that he will obtain new lab tests in March. If his viral load becomes undetectable from his use of Black seed powder as a mono-therapy, he will get an HIV antibody test to see if he has sero-converted (from HIV+ to -).

    A slight change in his protocol of using black seed capsules occurred on Jan 10th when he added 2 capsules of Neem Leaf to his regimen. He now takes 3 Black Seed powder caps with 2 Neem Leaf caps twice a day with meals. He continues to remain asymptomatic, uses no prescribed drugs, and has stopped his use of alcohol during the work week.

    We both agreed that there would be no point in taking the standard elisa/western blot HIV test now if there remained a detectable viral load. The purpose of adding the Neem Leaf caps was to further increase the CD4 counts and hopefully speed up the date where sero-conversion takes place.

    Patient P from Illinois update- I was told in January that her husband who had been using black seed oil with the prescribed drugs tried to get an elisa/western blot HIV test and was refused. He made the mistake of going to the same clinic where they knew him. The clinic told him that the results of his test would be that he was still HIV+. New lab tests for viral load and CD4 counts are about a month away.

    A mixture of Black seed and Honey called A-zam is tested on 51 HIV+ patients in Nigeria with significant increases in CD4 counts and declines in viral loads.

    An article published in Afr J Tradit Complement Altern Med. 2011; 8(1): 37–44. Published online 2010 Oct 2 by A. A. Onifade et al discusses a mixture made of Black Seed and Honey called A-zam given to 51 HIV+ patients. The results were a significant increase in CD4 counts and decrease in the viral load. A few of the patients used the Black Seed remedy (A-zam) along with hiv drugs. The abstract states the following:

    This study was to determine the effectiveness (CD4 count and viral load) of a safe herbal concoction, α-Zam used by clients seeking herbal remedy for treatment of HIV infection in Nigeria. 51 patients taking α-Zam as complementary and alternative therapy through the herbal therapist were studied for a period of 16 months. Preliminary medical and laboratory examinations using WHO and CDC criteria were done after confirmation of HIV infection by Western blotting in the nearest teaching hospitals to the residence of the patients. Regular visits were paid to the patients after commencement of the α-Zam to assess the side-effects, drug interactions, toxicity and effectiveness of the herbal remedy. There was a statistical significance (P<0.05) between pre-treatment and post-treatment CD4 count. 4 (7.8%) of the patients had average increase in CD4 count of 262±16 cell/µL, 23 (45.1%) patients with average increase 310±16 cell/µL, 16 (31.4%) patients with average increase 456±25 cell/µL and 8 (15.7%) patients with average increase 510±36 cell/µL( %) were at WHO staging I , II, III and IV respectively within 4 months on herbal therapy. There was very marked reduction in viral (HIV-RNA) load with 41 (80.4%) [had undectable viral loads] and 10 (19.6%) HIV infected patients had <1000 copies/ml respectively after the therapy. All symptoms and signs associated with HIV infection in all patients fully subsided within 4 weeks of commencement of α-zam therapy and there was no evidence of negative drug interaction in those HIV patients using both the herbal and highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). The study is in progress to determine periodic immunological outcomes of post therapy in all patients.

    The full text article with charts is available as a pdf file. The mean average CD4 at the start of treatment was 262. After Black seed therapy, the mean average CD4 count increased to 703. Of 51 patients, 41 had undetectable viral loads and 10 had detectable viral loads less than 1000. The study reports that all symptoms of all the patients were gone within the first 4 weeks.

    Some facts about Black Seed (Nigella Sativa)

    Black Seed is sometimes called "Black Cumin." However, the species of "Cumin" is "Cuminum syminum" while the species of Black Seed is "Nigella Sativa." Wikipedia states that the term "Black Cumin" is somewhat misleading. The Cumin spice is used in Chili, Salsa, meats and bean dishes. It is usually brown in color and has a very strong flavor. It is commonly stocked in grocery stores. Black seed on the other hand has a mild peppery taste and is sometimes substituted for black pepper. Black Seed is used as a spice in soup, naan breads, some artisan cheese and specialty dishes. Nigella sativa is one of several species of Nigella and has the most promising medicinal properties. 40% of whole black seeds or ground black seed powder consists of oil. Most of the more than 600 published studies on black seed have been in a laboratory setting. There are very few controlled studies with humans.

    Note: Feb. 5, 2015, today we have corrected on this website statements where we previously calling Black Seed powder "black cumin." The problem of calling Black Seed "Black Cumin" is that black seed is not the same species as regular "cumin" a brownish colored spice used in Mideastern, Asian and other ethnic cooking. Of some 14 Nigella species, the primary species being investigated for its medicinal value is "Nigella Sativa.", the website where we obtained the Black Seed powder capsules also adds to the confusion by calling its Nigella Sativa powder "Black Cumin" powder. I also searched the web and found one site that incorrectly labeled its brown "Cumin" seeds NIgella Sativa. The amateur source apparently thought that all "cumin" was nigella sativa. I only found one source that made this mistake but there could be others. Caveat Emptor - let the buyer beware.

    Historical use: Nigella Sativa was found in King Tut's tomb and has been in use for thousands of years for its medicinal value. (1) In islamic writing, a hadith by Abu Hurairah states: "There is healing in black seed for all diseases except death" (1)

    Clinical trial tests black seed for Hepatitis C (HCV)
    Volunteers wanted to test Black Seed powder for treating HCV or HBV

    A study was done in Egypt to test the effects of Black Seed oil on patients with HCV. While viral titers for HCV declined on this study, the dose used was one 450 mg capsule 3 times a day. We have posted the full text article here. The black seed oil clearly has shown efficacy in this trial although we believe that the whole black seed powder would have shown even better results.

    From published clinical studies and our experience with using black seed for treating HIV, the black seed powder was much more effective than the pressed oil. With ground whole black seed powder, you also get the oil as 40% of black seed by weight is oil. With the oil alone, you are only obtaining trace amounts of the immune modulating proteins found in the whole seeds. Since the whole seed powder has shown more efficacy than the oil, we are interested in hearing from persons who want to try using Black Seed powder for treating HCV or HBV. Black seed powder by the pound is available from While the original black seed powder in capsules is also available, the bulk powder is much more cost effective.

    Example: if one teaspoon (the equivalent of 4 capsules) of the black seed powder is mixed with orange juice and taken by an adult person twice a day, one pound would last about 4 months. It would cost about $5 a month. That is as low a cost as most generic drugs. There are over 3 million people with HCV in the United States alone. The Egyptian study that we have posted is a full text article. If you have HCV or even HBV, show this article to your doctor and discuss with him or her the use of whole black seed powder for your condition. For your questions or comments or to let us know if you plan to use Black Seed for your health condition: send us an email.

    The latest Journal of Immunity v12 n4 2014/15 Winter Edition is now online

    • Black Seed Powder is reported to have cured* 5 persons of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria in published studies- performing beyond any HAART protocol and without any adverse effects or viral resistance. Published studies show that the Black Seed remedy (Nigella Sativa) for HIV is safe, effective, and very low in cost. There are no patents, no market monopolies, and no FDA approval is required. Symptoms disappear within 30 days. CD4 counts significantly increase while viral loads drop to non-detectable levels - usually within 5 months or less. It does so at a small fraction of the cost of existing drugs. Black Seed powder is readily available everywhere. Read this 5-page report

    * Cured means sustained seroconversions (HIV+ to -) have occurred in a number of cases after the Black Seed remedy has ended. Update: May 2015 - attempts to cure HIV/AIDS in the United States using Black Seed as a monotherapy failed to duplicate the results of the Nigerian studies. [One emerging theory is that blood levels of vitamin D were not sufficient to duplicate these results due to limited exposure of the skin to the sun's uvb rays. There could be other dietary and lifestyle unknown factors as well.]

I am in the Kingdom but am also here with you. My Son is sending me anew to help you. Therefore, do not lose hope; instead, follow me – because the victory of my heart is in the name of God. My beloved Son is thinking of you as he has always thought of you. Believe him and live him. He is the life of the world. My children, to live my Son means to live the Gospel. This is not easy. This means love, forgiveness and sacrifice. This purifies and it opens the Kingdom. Sincere prayer, which is not only words but is a prayer which the heart speaks, will help you. Likewise fasting (will help you), because it is still more of love, forgiveness and sacrifice. Therefore, do not lose hope but follow me. I am imploring you anew to pray for your shepherds so that they may always look to my Son who was the first Shepherd of the world and whose family was the entire world."

    Jan 3, 2015 update on the Black seed remedy for HIV

    Hi Conrad,

    I have received several emails in response to my HIV results that were posted on December 16th. I thought I would send you an email that answers these questions so that you could post them to your website. I have been taking three 475 mg capsules of Whole Spectrum Black Seed Original Plain powder twice daily. I take the first 3 when I wake up and the last three after dinner for a total of 2850 mg of the Black Seed daily. Let me know if I left out anything.


    Reply -
    Aron. The blackseed you used came from It is the Original Formula Plain (not the oil). Their phone number is 800-241-9138 The best price is to order 3 bottles or more. There is 100 caps per bottle. Each capsule contains 475 mg. Also, I just measured the quantity of black seed powder in the capsules. It takes 4 capsules (475 mg each) to fill one level measuring teaspoon. The measuring teaspoon is the same one used for baking purposes, not a soup spoon or a dessert spoon. If anyone grinds up their own nigella sativa seeds, 1 level teaspoon would contain 1900 mg total. Two teaspoons daily would be more than you used or was used in the case from Nigeria. What you used Aron with the 6 capsules was the equivalent of 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of black seed powder each day. Conrad LeBeau email

    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.

    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 <>:

    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 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 ( 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.

    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


    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 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 <> 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. 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 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

    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, 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:

    Aug 6th - Mike Adams of asks 21 questions about the Ebola pandemic that are not being addressed by the mass media.

    Posted August 3, 2014.

    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

    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. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.


    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.


    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.

    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.

    Our origin began with publications as early in 1989. In 1991, a book on diet and the immune system soon followed and in Feb..,1995, it was replaced with another book on "How To Reverse Immune Dysfunction." Six editions followed along with several publications including "Progressive Health News" , "Positive Health News" and the current "Journal of Immunity." All are part of this legacy. Back issues and writings dating to 1994 are on this website. A treasury of various articles and publications can be found here on a wide variety of health topics.
