Q & A: Food Matters, Gerson, High-Dose Vitamins, Raw Diet, Prescription Drugs


Question:

Hi Chris, I just watched Food Matters last night. What are your thoughts/overall views on:
– the Gerson Therapy.
– high-dose vitamin therapy (to prevent and treat cancer), if viewed positively, aren’t vitamins contained in chemical-laden capsules with harmful preservatives for the average budget-conscious consumer?
– raw food diet
– being prescribed medication by doctors

I’m always disturbed by the suspicion that big business, government, and some doctors are profiting off our our illnesses and deaths. Sad and scary.

Thanks in advance for your time.

-Jenn

Answer:

Hi Jenn!

I like Foodmatters a lot. It’s a great film about raw food and natural medicine.  I own it and think everyone should watch it.

I love Max Gerson and the Gerson Therapy.  He was a pioneer in cancer therapy by using natural methods to detox the body and boost the bodies ability to heal itself.  Survivors like me are the fruit of his labor.  Huge fan.  There are several books and movies about Max Gerson and his therapy HERE.

High Dose Vitamins
I actually did high-dose Vitamin C IVs, where I sat in a chair for four hours and got huge amounts of Vitamin C pumped straight into my veins!  A lot of alternative therapy cancer clinics use this treatment as an immune system booster.

As far as supplements go, you have to be careful, there are a lot of crappy quality vitamin and supplement brands that I wouldn’t touch.  Vitamins can be synthesized in a laboratory.  That’s not the kind you want.  Look for Organic Whole-Food Supplements.  Not isolated vitamins.  Vitamins work synergistically and are more effective when they are combined in proper ratios like you find them in fruits and vegetables.  Here’s the easiest way to understand whole food supplements:  Imagine juicing some organic veggies, then dehydrating that veggie juice into a powder, then putting that powder into a capsule.  That is a whole food supplement.  The nutrients are not chemically altered and basically remain in an absorbable state.

My favorite whole food supplement brand is Garden of Life.

The Raw Food Diet
I’m a big fan of the raw food diet, especially if you are sick, or just want to detox.  I adopted it strictly for a time in my anti-cancer plan and still consume a lot of raw food now.  I wrote a post about it HERE.  Some metabolic types don’t do as well on a 100% raw food diet and need a little animal protein like me.  I recommend everyone try the raw food diet for at least a few weeks or months to see how they feel.  It may be something you do for a season, or for the rest of your life.  Either way, the more raw fruits and vegetables you can incorporate into your diet every day, the better.

Prescription Drugs
This deserves a huge post and will get one someday, but generally speaking most prescription medications do not help your body heal.  They only alleviate symptoms.  Those are the type of medicines that I believe can do more harm than good in the long run.  75% of diseases are diet related, but most people would rather take a pill for their indigestion than stop eating Burger King and drinking Pepsi.  Many medications create a lifetime of dependance and cause additional side effects the longer you take them, which require more medications, which cause additional side effects, and on and on.   Read my rant about Restless Leg Syndrome HERE.

Chemotherapy is the worst of all “medicines” because it is pure poison and actually causes cancer.  See my post Why I Didn’t Do Chemo.

I personally know a woman who had Crohn’s Disease.  The doctors told her they couldn’t stop the Crohn’s Disease and prescribed medication to help with the pain and discomfort.  They also told her that in a few years, as the disease got worse, she would need to have her intestines removed and have a colostomy bag put in.  She got on the raw foods diet ten years ago and is fine today!  That’s just one example of thousands.

I do not take any medications, nor does my wife, or our children. This is a sensitive subject as we all know lots people who take prescription drugs.  If anyone reading this is taking something meds now, don’t quit cold turkey.  Please let me encourage you to research natural healing methods and work with your doctor to get well and get off the drugs.

Coming full circle here, God’s Way To Ultimate Health is a book full of testimonials from people with every affliction imaginable who have see incredible healing results with the raw food diet.  The information in that book was profoundly influential in my decision not to do chemotherapy.

Big Business
You are abosolutely right.  The pharmaceutical and medical industry definitely profits off of sick people.  They wants us to believe that drugs and surgery are the only solution to illness, because they can’t patent and sell natural remedies.  And simply telling you to change your diet and exercise definitely doesn’t make them any money.

That being said, If I ever break a bone, somebody better get me to a hospital and on some pain pills quick!

    Chris, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed response. Thank you especially for your information on vitamins and suggesting a specific brand like Garden of Life (although a bit expensive). I’ve asked about vitamins to numerous people, and no one seemed to want to take a specific point of view or give specific advice. So thank you.

    Regarding prescription medication, I would love to read your post on it someday. I believe some medicine is useful; however I get infuriated when we are used as human test trials. For example, my mom was one of those women who took hormone replacement therapy for almost 10 years, then was told “oops, we have to take you off it now because it’s now dangerous.” Sorry, but I don’t want my mom to be the long term trial. She’s also been on osteoporosis medication for 9 years now and her bones have still gotten worse, and the doctor advises her to continue taking it or it will keep getting worse. She also has arthritis, for which they also prescribed her another high-risk medication to help with the pain. My fiance (and his father) has been on statins for many years for their elevated cholesterol – I’m treating to get him off it. So, it’s a very confusing and sticky situation for many Americans right now that want to do the right thing but are told so many contradictory information. I like coming to your site for at least some sense of clarity.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      You’re welcome!
      Yeah Garden of Life is pricey, but you’re paying for quality.
      Thank you for sharing your moms story.
      Sad, but unfortunately not uncommon.
      There’s a long list of medications approved by
      the FDA that have since been removed because
      they weren’t safe and caused severe health problems and even death.

      1. Jenn

        Hi Chris, sorry to bother you again, but a couple more questions about the Garden of Life Vitamins. Do you take the Living Multi ones or the Vitamin Code ones? Also, it doesn’t appear that Garden of Life is organic or GMP registered. Does this matter for this particular brand?

        I found some vitamins on Amazon called New Chapter – and they appear to be organic and GMP registered – have you ever tried these? Thanks in advance.

        1. chrisbeatcancer

          I like living multi and vitamin code and alternate between the two. They do have a lot of organic ingredients and follow GMP.
          You can find supplement ingredients and gmp info at http://www.gardenoflife.com.
          New Chapter is also a great company with quality products that I would take.
          I’m a big fan of Jordan Rubin, Garden of Life’s founder and figurehead.
          He has an amazing story and is the author of The Maker’s Diet, Patient Heal Thyself, and a bunch of other great books.
          That plays into why I like Garden of Life so much.

          1. Jenn

            Thank you Chris. I think I’ll begin with the Garden of Life’s multi and try the Vitamin Code later as well. I’ll also be trying New Chapter’s Turmeric since it’s organic and has 95% curcumin.

            I’ve forwarded this site to several friends, healthy and ill, and they love it.

            I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas!

  2. Jeanne

    Chris, In the past I have used Amway’s vitamin supplements because the information on them is they are pure….how in the world do you find out if they are pure or what they are saying about their or any other company’s claims are really true?

    There is a new ‘diet’ called HGC and the research I’ve done just doesn’t ring true. Have you heard of it?

    Two questions….sorry.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Jeanne
      I don’t know about Amway’s vitamins specifically, but I can tell you that the highest quality vitamins are
      made from whole food concentrates with organic ingredients listed on the bottle.

      HCG is a pregnancy hormone that signals the thymus to mobilize fat stores.
      This diet is pretty controversial, although it may help the body to burn fat, it is a short term solution,
      and may have side effects.
      A long-term, sustainable, healthy lifestyle change always produces the best results.

  3. Jeanne Newberry

    Good information Chris. I’m totally making a trip to Whole Foods after the first of the year after things settle down. I’m feeling the need to get back to some normal roots of eating fish, fresh vegetables and fruits. I’m going to pick up the book you suggested and some vitamins – I’m ready for it.

  4. Terry Strand

    Chris,
    GREAT JOB! We read your article and followed up with your site. I look forward to reading everything and passing the info. on to my family.

    Hey Chris, I’ve started drinking organic teas because they are purported to have great health benefits. I have substituted Mate in place of coffee. What’s your take on that? If you get the time maybe you could do an article on the subject.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Rodney that’s great! Teas are definitely superior to coffee.
      Yerba Mate is a bit controversial. Some studies have shown it to have great health benefits, while others have linked it to cancers of the lung, kidney, esophagus and bladder because of high concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
      So I don’t drink it.
      I actually have a post about the teas I drink, which are Matcha Green Tea, Red Tea, Jason Winters Tea, and Tulsi.
      You can read more about them at http://chrisbeatcancer.com/tea-up

  6. Patrick

    Hi Chris, just found your blog through ‘Natural Awakenings’. Your story is truly inspiring. I have been eating just like you for quite some time and am thrilled that it saved your life, I tell friends of mine that you are investing in yourself by buying the slightly more expensive organic fruits and veggies. Ok, I usually microwave my sweet potatoes. Is this a safe method of cooking?

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Thanks Patrick! You’re absolutely right. Quality food is an investment in your health.
      It’s a matter of priorities, and I personally can’t think of anything I’d rather spend money on.

      I don’t believe microwave radiation is a safe cooking method, so I warm up cold food, like leftovers,
      in a pot or a pan on the stove, and we usually bake sweet potatoes in our toaster oven.
      I plan to write a post on microwaves soon.
      :)

  7. Katerina

    Hi Chris,
    This is sort of a random question – have you ever tried to poor any liquid solution into your ear to get the extra wax out? I read about it from time to time, but I’m extremely afraid to try it. What have you tried? (hydrogen peroxide? a solution from your local pharmacy?)
    Thank you!

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Katerina
      I’ve put hydrogen peroxide in my ears as a cold remedy, but not to get wax out. It definitely won’t hurt to try.

      1. Katerina

        Thank you for your answer!

  8. Pam

    Hi Chris — I have been reading your website and find it very informative. You indicated that you initially followed the Gerson program. I have been following another person’s blog who follows the Gerson plan and she was told not to eat avocado and almond butter (for the fats) and also no curry or turmeric. However, your site encourages the use of these herbs. Do you have any thoughts on that?

    Also, your site indicates that apple cider vinegar is great for salad dressings. Since the vinegar is made from apples, and you are not supposed to use any fruits with vegetables, isn’t this contrary to that rule?

    Thanks for your thoughts! Pam

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Pam
      As you can see there is a lot of conflicting information out there!
      If you have cancer, Gerson recommends no animal protein, no fats, no spices, no sugar/carbs.
      Only raw fruits and vegetables. That is as hardcore as it gets.
      When I initially went raw I didn’t eat any of those things for some time,
      but after researching and found out about their health benefits, and with the blessing of my naturopath,
      I added them to my diet. My high metabolism needs more fat and calories.
      There are a few voices in the natural health world saying don’t eat them,
      and many voices, like Dr. Russell Blaylock for example, that say you should.
      The more you read up on health and wellness, the more you’ll find a common thread of true health promoting food.
      Listen to your body and your gut. Follow the advice that resonates with you.

      The reason fruits and veggies should be eaten separately is because they require different digestive juices
      and can cause excess acidity in digestion.
      Apple Cider Vinegar is a fermented food loaded with beneficial bacteria that actually aid in digestion.

    Hi Chris. I was checking your web site looking to see if you eat soy products, including miso soup as there are conflicting reports on whether these products are healthy or not. Thanks for the info. Pam

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Pam I rarely eat soy. The healthiest versions of soy are miso, natto, and tempeh. Avoid tofu or any processed soy products like fake meat.

  10. Penny

    Hi Chris,
    I have a question about alphalfa sprouts i heard that they did a recall on organic ones not long ago and wondered how do you know when it is ok to eat them again? i love them on sandwhiches and salads and am concerned now
    thank you

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Penny
      I have no idea. Let me know if you find something out on this.
      :)

  11. Lisa

    Hi Chris,

    I have just been diagnosed three days ago with stage 4 colon cancer, at 29 years of age. I am in complete shock. I have My question is, do you think that your methods could work for stage 4?? Is there anything else you would add to the protocol to fight a very aggressive stage 4 cancer?? Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Lisa
      So sorry to hear that. Alternative methods have worked for all types of cancers.
      Get the book “God’s Way to Ultimate Health” immediately.
      It is the first book I read and it was written by a colon cancer survivor
      who beat it naturally.

      If you would like to chat on the phone, email me your phone number through the site.

      Chris

  12. Amanda

    Hi Chris,
    This is Mark, Amanda’s husband. We were devastated when Amanda was diagnosed with breast cancer last Tuesday, much fear, stress, worry, anxiety etc, etc! She felt she was being rushed into treatment, via a mastectomy within two weeks (now 8 days away) then the ongoing treatment which they will no doubt push on Thursday’s pre op meeting. Amanda found your blog and loves it, she really believes that diet can change things, and we have always eaten fairly healthily. I suppose we may have had too much alcohol, wine and a few beers of a week, we also ate quite a bit of meat…. my fault as Amanda was a veggie when I first met her, then went veggie again for a while. Anyway, we are both onboard with your thoughts, and would like to avoid chemo at all costs. We have purchased loads of veg, berries and nuts, plus soy milk. Are there any items you’d suggest she doesn’t have right now? Or any combinations that may work better than others. She wants to know should she be avoiding fruit, and sticking to veg? What nuts would you consider safe. We have also been eating alot of lentils, what are your thoughts? Any pieces of advice would be greatly appreciated Chris.
    Many thanks.
    Mark & Amanda x
    PS. Well done mate.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Mark. Sounds like you’re on the right track, but I would avoid soy.
      Mostly raw veggies and some fruit. No cooked food, meat or dairy during my hardcore detox phase.
      My strategy was basically eating the same thing everyday: 8 glasses of veggie juice, giant salads, and a coconut/fruit smoothie.
      There are posts about each, as well as the healthiest nuts here on the site.
      Eating the same thing everyday might sound boring, but there are worse things, like chemo.
      I did many juice fasts as well to speed up detoxing my body, there’s a post about that too.
      I ate a ton of lentils but I sprouted them and ate them raw on my salads.

      Chris
      Definitely get the book God’s Way to Ultimate Health.

  13. Penny

    Hi Chris, I started juicing not long ago and had originally been doing carrots only, sometimes a quarter of an apple in it also. Well, Saturday I did about 10 carrots and an entire head of a medium size green cabbage head, it made 2 cups of juice and I drank it. Not even 5 miniutes and I started feeling nausea, 10 min later headed to the bathroom- not vomiting- the other thing- then I felt so terrible- bent over and nauseated like never before. I drank a bottle of water thinking it would help but 4 min later I ran to the bathroom and hurled like there was no tomorrow. I don’t know why is happened. I did drink it on an empty stomach. But I hear of alot of people drinking juice on an empty stomach and having alot of green veggies in their juice and this nit happening. I want to continue to juice but this has kind of dampered me from it. If you have any advice I welcome it. Thanks.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Penny that’s crazy!
      I’ve made all kinds of concoctions but never had that experience.
      But I’ve also never juiced cabbage…
      Maybe a bad batch?
      Carrot, celery, and beet is the most popular combo at our house.

      1. Penny

        Thanks chris

        1. J Chris

          A lot of people that get nauseated, etc., due to a virus and then get sick mistakenly believe it must have been the last thing they ate.

  14. Pam

    Hi Chris. I know that you believe in the Gerson therapy. I am wondering if you actually went to Mexico or Hungary and learned about the therapy first hand, or if you read the book and then used what you learned? I know that Gerson tells you to avoid avocados, mushrooms, cucumbers, spices, and several other anti-cancer foods. I do not believe that you avoided these things, did you? Thanks for your thoughts! Pam

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Pam
      I learned of Gerson therapy from book research and based on further research decided to eat the foods you mentioned.
      I followed the basics tenants of Gerson: raw foods, juicing, etc.

      1. Kelly

        Hi Chris,
        My mom has been told off and on for years that her calcium is too high. She does not drink milk, has an occasional yogurt, tris to avoid calcium since this is what her doctors have advised. My feeling is there must be some natural food/flavonoid something out there that can help lower this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
        Kelly

        1. chrisbeatcancer

          Hi Kelly
          I have not had experience with this, but here are my thoughts:

          If she is highly acidic her body could be leaching calcium from her bones
          to neutralize the internal acidity, or to compensate for a diet that is actually too low in calcium.
          It could also be a hormonal imbalance.
          This calcium ends up in the bloodstream and show up in blood tests.
          So the answer could be more calcium.
          I would definitely avoid processed dairy products. I drink raw milk but it’s hard to find.
          Non-dairy sources of calcium are spinach, broccoli, peas, salmon, and almonds.
          This is not medical advice, these are just ideas worth exploring.
          :)

    Chris,

    I have a large range of intestinal issues and have been recently inspired, by you, to try a raw foods diet. So far I feel pretty good but was wondering if this diet is going to make a thin girl thinner? My whole life I have tried to put weight on and I was wondering how you’ve managed to maintain a healthy weight?

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Julie
      Glad to hear you’re feeling better. The body doesn’t heal overnight so be patient and stick with it.
      Raw foods might make you thinner if you aren’t getting your body’s daily requirement of calories.
      Nuts, avocado, coconut, and even a cooked sweet potato at night will help sustain your weight.
      Check out my posts on nuts and coconuts for more info.
      :)
      Chris

      1. Judy Seeger, ND

        I definitely agree with Chris that adding natural fat foods like nuts, avocado, and coconut will help keep the weight on.

        However, you also mentioned that you’ve had a ton of intestinal issues. That’s a sure sign that you’re not absorbing your nutrients. I would encourage you to look into some digestive enzymes to take before EVERY meal. This will also make you feel better overall.

  16. Laura Bray

    Hello! I have an underactive thyroid that is not quite severe enough to take medication, though I have taken medication for it in the past. I keep thinking that there has to be a natural way to help prevent the issue from worsening and wanted to know if you could recommend anything that may help me discover alternative medications that are natural or diet related… Thanks and I absolutely love your blog! So inspiring.

    Blessings!

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Laura, that is something I’ve never dealt with.
      My advice to to google it and also look for a local Naturopath in your area.
      :)

  17. Susan Marie

    Chris,
    what, if anything, have you heard about bio-oxidative therapies — real healing there or what?

    Susan

  18. Laura

    Hi Chris!

    There are several questions I have been wanting to ask you because I trust your opinion.

    1. I have had great difficulty finding organic produce that is not grown in California or in other areas along the Pacific Coast. Considering the crisis in Japan ( and how this is affecting the rest of the world), I have been trying to put effort into buying food that has not been affected (to the same degree) by Fukushima. What are your thoughts on this and have you altered your produce/other food buying habits?

    2. I have stopped drinking commercialized milk (drinking coconut milk at present). I have a three year old and a fifteen month old. They are drinking organic milk at present though I am interested in switching them to something else. I have a strong feeling my pediatrician will not agree with this, yet I am curious about what your daughters drink.

    3. Finally, I know you are big on Garden of Life brand supplements. Can you recommend others you trust that are somewhat reasonably priced? I bought Nature’s Bounty
    Super Greens yesterday and don’t know how I feel about it. Basically I am a total novice in the supplement department!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share vital information. I know we all appreciate you!

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Laura
      1. I’ve been researching Fukushima and I’m really concerned.
      I am almost to the point of investing in a Geiger counter to test food and supplements we buy for radiation.
      This may be the way of the future.

      2. Our kids and family drink raw milk. It is one of the healthiest life-giving foods on the planet.
      I don’t drink any other milk.

      3. In my opinion Garden of Life is highest quality whole food based supplement.
      We do buy other brands for certain things, but I would need to know specifically
      what you are buying to make a recommendation.

      :)

  19. Ari

    Chris, I found your website while looking for healthy eating choices. I want to know what kind of diet your kids eat and how do you get them to eat the healthier diet you propose. We have a two year old and we do get a lot of veggies into her and are raising her vegetarian but, I do want to understand what more I can do to help her eat a healthy diet. She does get sick in the fall with daycare allergies and such and I want to help her beat that naturally. I would like to know what kind of diet your children eat with you guys.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Ari, as you know, kids are picky. We have to skinny little kids and it’s hard for us to get them to eat anything!
      They would rather play than sit at the table.
      We buy organic produce. They both like different types of fruit, they like baby carrots, they like cooked green beans,
      we buy them sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter, for some reason they like that better than almond butter.
      I like almond butter better. They will eat almonds and cashews though.
      They both drink raw milk, which is easily the most health promoting food they eat. They eat raw cheese from whole foods.
      They also eat clean meat: free range organic chicken and grass fed beef.
      One word of caution about vegetarianism, many vegetarians eat way too much grains and carbs: bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, corn, etc.
      A diet with a large percentage of these foods is not healthy. It’s too much sugar.
      Clean meats and vegetables actually provide more nutrients per serving than any grain.
      Organic Pasture-Raised Eggs are great too, but mine don’t really like eggs yet.
      They also love iced Jason Winters Tea, which my wife and I are thrilled about. We all drink it every day.

      This will eventually be a lengthy post with more details, but hopefully that helps!

    hi.

    regarding garden of life- i cant find it on nsf site. plus it had past legal issues for false claims. plus read rubin is not qualified nutrionist etc etc.can you plz clarify cuz i saw rubin who seems very good but the company’s ethics conflict with its nice products & founder. finally i dont believe until its from legit source but until now my research continues & am confused regarding garden of life.

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Garden of Life produces high quality organic whole food supplements.
      Jordan Rubin is a great guy with an amazing heart who has helped alot of people
      including me.
      They got in trouble for making some health claims on their products, which were true,
      but not allowed on supplements by the FDA.

    Hi Chris!

    I was wondering if you use an air purifier and if so what brand? My mother in law has Lymphoma and I am thinking of getting her an air purifier just not sure which one to get. Thank you!

  22. Maram

    Hi Chris

    Been reading your blog for the past two days, very interesting and inspiring..my father(70years) is battling esophageal cancer he had finished chemos and 29 radiation 2 months back. He will be having his first pet scan post chemoradiation next week and by the grace of God hopefully we will get a good news.

    Just wanted to ask you about mushrooms supplements..I have been doing quiet a lot of research on it and it seems to be a must for cancer patients

    I read that at some point you’ve taken RM 10 (which i heard about) but you’ve not written much about it
    I am getting my father AHCC, My Community and Turkey tail (Fungi Perfect) by Paul Stamets which has good reviews..what is your take on these products?
    And also have you heard of Pectasol C and Fucoidan?

    Will be definitely getting some of the things you recommended specially Udo’s oil and the Yes brand if I can find someone who can ship it to India..he needs to put on weight

    Best wishes
    Maram

    1. chrisbeatcancer

      Hi Maram, yes I took an advanced dose of RM-10, three pills 3x per day for many many months.
      I still take 3 per day now.
      I don’t have any experience with any of the other things you mentioned.
      The coconut fruit smoothie that I make should help him put on weight.

    Hi Chris–I so enjoy this site and visit often to gleen all I can in my “treatment” of uterine cancer. I am on the Bill Henderson Protocol and use organic unsweetened coconut milk in the small cartons for my daily “Budwig smoothie” Is this ok to use or should I switch to your choice of fresh or canned?

      I’ve never bought it in a carton, but as long as the only ingredient is coconut it should be ok.
      You really should try fresh coconut though. It’s so delicious and you don’t have to wonder the nutritional value has been affected by processing.

    Hi Chris, I am new to your website. I’m 43 year mom and was diagnosed with liver cancer a few months ago. Initially I was a surgical candidate but now that is not the case. Tumor is too big (16cm). I have a friend who has stage 4 breast cancer who introduced me to your story. I find your story and committment very inspiring. I’m am buying a juicer and plan on changning my diet and lifestyle as well.
    Do you have any info specifically on liver cancer? And do you have any info on the Japanese seaweed, manufactured as Fucoidan? I have found many sites and stories about it’s benefits and tumor reducing abilities.
    Thank you much,
    Gen

    “The pharmaceutical and medical industry definitely profits off of sick people.”

    And Chris how are you different? All I can see are affiliate links, and it seems to me that your blog started with reason to help people but I his reason was lost somewhere in the way and only thing that’s left is making money just like medical industry.

      Clearly you’ve mistaken me for someone who is independently wealthy with unlimited resources…

      I don’t profit off of sick people.
      I share free information on nutrition and natural therapies.
      Doing what I do here takes a tremendous amount of my time, energy, and effort.
      It also costs me money.
      Revenue from ads and affiliate links help offset those costs.
      If more people donated, I wouldn’t need affiliate links.

      So here’s my donate page
