Keep away old man, you won’t fool me
You and your history won’t rule me
You might have been a fighter, but admit you failed
I’m not affected by your blackmail
You won’t blackmail me.
–Pete Townshend, Slip Kid
There is an elephant in the room and I am not one to ignore elephants.
Nor is this a laughing matter.
But it does, if you stay till the end, have hope and light in it.
When you write about a subject long enough, you become what you write about, dissolve into it, finally, and are asked to own and take full responsibility for it, like it or not.
The so-called “dissident movement,” in the US which is not a “movement” so much as a body of objections and critiques, has urged people to leave the ARV (anti-retroviral) based ship of the orthodoxy, but not provided any reliable lifeboats. That is a simplification, but I will elaborate.
The time has come to put a new flag up. One of total surrender to all that can be observed, with no defenses of calcified beliefs. To stick to beliefs that are not open, alive, and evolving, is to betray people who are in a life or death situation.
I began in late 1987, reporting and writing about dissent to the mushroom cloud of terror that was the Robert Gallo-based “hypothesis” that what he self-servingly named “human immunodeficiency virus” (after naming it HTLV-lll) was the single and sufficient cause of the syndrome the CDC called Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. (A paradox. Did one “acquire” it or did one “catch” it?)
I reported with youthful zeal, with the full backing of my editor, Bob Guccione Jr. on a subject he gave monthly feature length “column” space to, at his magazine, SPIN, namely AIDS. Mr. Guccione considered the subject worthy of a monthly column because it was, as he said, “the Vietnam of our generation.” I interviewed, of course, Dr. Peter Duesberg, Dr. Robert Root Bernstein, Dr. Joseph Sonnabend, Safe Sex inventor and AIDS activist Michael Callen, and many other voices of “dissent,” which was a symphony of voices objecting to various parts of the mushroom cloud.
Duesberg cleanly said retroviruses are not pathogenic. Root-Bernstein and Sonnabend argued a multifactorial model. Dr. Michael Lange at St. Lukes Roosevelt told me AZT was killing patients. (And that his career would be terminated if I revealed his identity.) (That’s mute now.)
Sonnabend and Callen joined the chorus of AZT dissent. Root-Bernstein pointed out things like scientific papers that showed “HIV” (pro-virus) was absent from seminal fluid. They all agreed that the “heterosexual AIDS explosion” was a cynical plot driven by AmFar to raise funds from terrified heterosexual Congressmen, that had no basis in the emerging statistics, or reality. When, in the early 1990s, The Perth Group wrote their first stunning paper in Bio/Technology, demonstrating that the “HIV test” was not proof of infection with “HIV,” things got more complex. The closer you held a magnifying glass to any one truism of the AIDS juggernaut, the more it dissolved in front of your eyes.
“I think time is my greatest ally.”
We were all caught up in trying to unravel a mass of pseudo-scientific assertions that sprang sui generis from…what seemed to be a propaganda factory. Where were these psychologically devastating proclamations about mass death from sex coming from? Everything was post-classical, meaning “proof” was considered somehow filthy, because people “were dying.” And this was the biggest problem: The orthodoxy managed to be “right” even when it proved to be “wrong.” Those who said things were “wrong” were declared murderers, even when they were proven right. It was incredibly difficult to function in this inverted universe.
Over the years, and then decades, camps splintered, hatred grew, careers were crushed, condemnations flew, and people died. On both sides, people died. I have a lot of love and respect for just about every single person who tried to sort this nightmare out. Let me just say that, first. The purpose here is not to condemn anybody for not having “all the answers.”
It is an act of abuse to demand answers in advance of due process.
In the Beginning
My first article was a breathless feature article about an egg lipid compound called AL-721 that was being cooked up in basements by gay men trying to save their brothers. I believed it was possibly the “cure for AIDS,” at the time. It wasn’t. It didn’t work.
The dissident movement actually grew out of the gay community in New York: Michael Callen, Richard Berkowitz, and Dr. Joe Sonnabend. They formulated the multi-factorial model for AIDS and pushed for a ruthless honesty between the gay community and the straight world. Larry Kramer and Act Up were the opposition to this. They prevailed. I don’t have time or space to get into that here and now. But the fact is, AIDS dissent began with gay men, not with a heterosexual cancer virologist in Berkeley. This was swept from the history in order that the Czars of AIDS could make dissent appear to be “homophobic.”
(Sonnabend, in turn, denounced Duesberg and other dissenters, as did Berkowitz. Callen never did. I welcome any persons named here who may read this to comment, or issue any corrections or embellishments.)
Michael Callen was my number one influence. He informed my thinking, and we were great friends. He died of AIDS, in 1994. He told me, and even left words to this effect in his will, that I would have my “head handed to me” by the gay community if I pursued this reporting on AIDS, and he urged me to do it anyway. After his death, his legacy has been scandalously transformed into conventional AIDS kitsch. None of his true “dissent” is honored.
He left me his archives, in his will, but I have never gone to try to retrieve them. His survivors and “loved ones” have decided to speak for him, by changing his message into something unrecognizable. Without Michael here, I can’t persuade them to take an interest in what he was really trying to say. But I will re-publish some of the old interviews and correspondences, as my energy returns.
AZT killed off a generation of gay men–the figure often quoted is 300,000.
AZT alone killed them–not AZT and HIV. The deaths were swift and gruesome. People were left sometimes with half a face, like survivors of Chernobyl.
Arthur Ashe, Rudolf Nureyev, Elizabeth Glaser–Kimberly Bergalis narrated her own drug-death by three nucleoside analogues, one being AZT, in Time Magazine. The artist Keith Haring died within two weeks of being persuaded by activist friends to take the “fast tracked” new nuke DDi. He died of renal failure, as gay activist and writer Jim Fouratt bravely went on record to admit.
When, after the 1993 Concorde Study‘s results were revealed in Berlin, AZT fell from its bizarre pedestal as “the only drug that can save lives,” the new drugs were about to be launched. Protease Inhibitors. David Ho. The math model for HIV. Andrew Sullivan’s cover story in the New York Times Magazine. The Lazarus Effect.
This was a hairpin turn in the history of AIDS. The despised “dissidents” and “AZT refusniks” saw their objections to the deadly AZT folded into a triumph, and made to disappear. The new drugs “worked.” Dr. David Ho was named Man of The Year by TIME magazine. We learned, the hard way, that orthodoxy types can kill 300,000 people with their “views” and still go after “deniers” with accusations of strongly held views “killing people.”
Sean Strub, founder of POZ Magazine, is a notable exception. He has always been capable of conceding that AZT dissenters “saved countless lives,” though he remains certain HIV causes AIDS and ARV drugs save lives. We get along just fine–because he is honest.
Here’s what happened next, in broad strokes: AIDS dissenters had nothing to offer, while the establishment had a Lazarus Effect to offer. Answers.
By default, and under the relentless pressures of bullying, abuse, censorship, libel, career destruction, and psychological torture, the dissidents formed a defensive posture: It came down to “don’t take drugs.”
If HIV was only a random collection of proteins, if “it” had never been proven to cause AIDS, if it said in the test inserts of all HIV tests that they can’t demonstrate either the presence or absence of HIV, if nothing could be trusted, the dissenters argued, why not free yourself instead from the “lie” and the “myth” of HIV’s deadliness. Break the chains. Just live your life.
Here, I need to state plainly: It worked for some. It did not work, generally. There was, and is, a blind spot. I titled this post “Dead Dissidents,” to own and deal with the spiteful phrase and the accusation inside it. To say that yes, it’s true, dissidents continued to die, having broken the chains (to some extent) and having gone off toxic drugs. They also died having gone ON toxic drugs, but after becoming inexplicably ill, often after some 20 years of relatively stable health.
A new and baffling pattern emerged: Does HIV cause AIDS after 20 years?
People who did not buy into the orthodox model were not by any means immune from sudden plummets in their health. In many cases, they agreed to take ARV drugs and this is probably what saved them. In other words: The truth was complex. It was still at large. Elusive.
There were others who did succeed in staying healthy with no interventions, 10, 15, 20 years on. But the important thing was those who got sick.
A positive HIV antibody test meant something, but what?
I want to get a real proper lather going here–a true Stalinist denunciation, of myself.
This is what I want to do.
I denounce myself, and I don’t speak for anybody else. I do this so that I may be considered free of calcified beliefs and open to new solutions. My notion of denouncing myself comes from an urge to metamorphose, to be free of old armor and blinders.
I don’t know how to transition, without this denunciation. It’s very important: I don’t want to be patted on the back. I want to be free.
I want to die (in terms of what I became branded with) and then come back in a new form. A form that allows for the “you people were wrong” rock thrown. Let me receive it, head on. Then we can carry on.
Here’s what I see: The dissenters were correct about the important and large critiques, but did not solve the matter of why people got sick, or how to reverse immune collapse. There was a greater interest in collecting “wrong” from the other side than in solving the problem. The other guys being wrong did not adequately help those who needed answers.
If I take a “ruthless moral inventory,” I can acknowledge that I myself was in defensive posture, and somewhere deep inside, I was too exhausted to open my eyes and keep them open, to the emerging patterns. Truth was not pooling obediently on one side. I fell asleep. I tended to my inner wounds. Then I realized that there was something I needed to SAY.
“Let’s talk about what we have been wrong about.”
(Imagine how much joy we could spread to the hearts of our enemies, in time for Christmas.)
It grew in me. I lost friends. Or were they? I was raw and angry. We had worked SO HARD and some of us were still alive after all the pogroms. Why couldn’t it just work out, solve itself like in a movie?
My outlets had been eliminated, following the orchestrated attacks on my journalistic veracity following an article I wrote in 2006 in Harper’s, (which was not denounced by Harper’s, or any of the sources quoted in it, but was attacked by both orthodox forces and dissidents, mostly for things that were not in it.)
I am often told my journalism is “irresponsible,” and here I must object. This is a Maoist concept. It is false. Journalism in a free society can never be “irresponsible.” It can only be correct or incorrect. The sole responsibility is to be accurate and correct. In today’s world, works of journalism can be accurate and “irresponsible.” We’ve severed the ties to observable reality.
I will never allow servant of public health or activist agendas to tell me what “journalism” is. Instead, the Nobel Committee has spoken, by awarding the prize this year to journalism’s savior: Svetlana Alexaevich.
“I’ve been searching for a genre that would be most adequate to my vision of the world to convey how my ear hears and my eyes see life.I tried this and that and finally I chose a genre where human voices speak for themselves. Real people speak in my books about the main events of the age such as the war, the Chernobyl disaster, and the downfall of a great empire. Together they record verbally the history of the country, their common history, while each person puts into words the story of his/her own life… The document brings us closer to reality as it captures and preserves the originals… But I don’t just record a dry history of events and facts, I’m writing a history of human feelings. What people thought, understood and remembered during the event. What they believed in or mistrusted, what illusions, hopes and fears they experienced.”
–Svetlana Alexaevich, Nobel Laureate, Literature, 2015
Human voices can’t be “wrong” and there should never have been a body of “authority” that eclipsed the voices of HIV positive people themselves, speaking for themselves.
If you think HIV science is anti-science, you should see the deranged ideas people have about what “journalism” is. They don’t realize it but they view journalism as a propaganda medium.
You have to fight this every step of the way. Sometimes you have to blow yourself up just to clear the debris and start over, fresh and new.
Nothing in my work–which relied always on voices, quoted at length, verbatim– is in need of retraction. Nothing that I am aware of. However, lacking an outlet, I have not had a chance to report on the failings, if you will, of the so so-called dissidents. Of myself too.
What I saw happening was neglect and abandonment. Not really listening. Not really dealing with the problems that were emerging. There was an entrenched refusal to evolve and keep moving. The discussion grew repetitive and stale. And people were exhausted and demoralized by the total absence of justice, rhyme or reason. No matter what, come or go 300,000 AZT dead or the failure of 90 million dead from heterosexual AIDS to appear, dissidents were still, to use a very accurate term– niggers.* (Carriers of abjected guilt and knowledge of crimes.) (One reader has objected strongly to my use of this word. I decided to keep it. I even plan too use it in the title of a book about women in journalism.
Zero points accorded for huge rights, in the face of an accusation that formed a choking shadow.
But in another country, far away from this one, dissident groups were approaching the problem differently, and arriving at real answers. In Korea, Raymund Ban and labor activist ‘Bara’ founded a website to help Koreans diagnosed HIV positive, 50% of whom committed suicide almost immediately.
In 2010, they published a translation of my book, Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS. Raymund came to New York twice in recent years, and we had two serious discussions. Also in Korea, Raymund and Bara came under fire for failing to keep people alive, once they were disabused of certain orthodox notions–most urgently, that life was already over, and suicide was the only good option.
Raymund told me, to my delight, that people had literally come off the ledge after being handed my book. In one instance, a man who was engaged tested positive after a flu shot (which can cause a “false positive”) and planned to commit suicide. He read my book and changed his mind. Today he and his wife have a beautiful, healthy 2 year old girl, who Raymund sent me photos of. The whole family is healthy and well. THIS is why the “dissident movement” matters. This piece is about where it went wrong, but there is much to say also about where it went right.
Raymund revealed to me that he had found the “eureka” moment in the writings and observations of Tony Lance, (who may since have adjusted his model) who argued that leaky gut syndrome correlated 100% with advancement of symptoms. The answer, then, to AIDS, was to fully heal the gut, and also re-mineralize the body with all 90 of the critical minerals the human body requires. I asked him to put this in writing, and he did. This, he told me, is working, and people are, yes, reversing and truly healing their immune suppression syndromes.
(It should be noted that Dr. Roberto Giraldo tried in vain for many years to assert the importance of chronic, systemic malnutrition in AIDS. He tried to open my eyes many years ago but in some way I was only a half-prepared mind. I had not gotten gravely ill myself yet. (With CFS/Thyroid collapse/Electric radiation, etc.) I did not respect the gut–yet.
It was Raymund’s frequency I was most interested in. It was a place of kindness, humility, and bereft of accusation. I wanted to be in this frequency, to heal myself, of the deep lash wounds of both sides of this inflamed, hysterical war. I told him, and Bara, that I needed a family, a constructive and trusting one, and we made a pact of sorts. To start over. I asked Raymund if he would share his information with the US and other global dissidents, and he agreed.
When, last week, it was announced that Lindsey Nagel had died, my phone rang with worried people, who wondered if the dissidents were wrong. The Nagels themselves wondered if HIV may have contributed to Lindsey’s failed health. (You can find Cheryl Nagel’s story in a previous post.)
Two gay men I know approached me with their anxiety. They were doing well, ignoring the orthodoxy’s dictates, but they weren’t “perfectly healthy,” and I decided to connect them with Raymund.
Things began to get very interesting, as we looked at ill health–and I include my own–through the prism of two things: Gut health and mineralization.
Raymund wrote a comprehensive text explaining what was working, in their dissident group, in Korea. You will be able to read it in full at the and of this post.
As of this writing, I have no allegiance to any camp or group. Truth be told, the beatings I’ve taken from dissidents has been more severe than even those inflicted by the orthodoxy. I myself want to live, and have been stuck in a kind of purgatory. I couldn’t quite “be here” until the questions I had posed had been resolved. They kept me in exile.
Love Is The Absence Of Accusation
I have been treated over many years for symptoms of PTSD, and my interpretation is this: Anything that is not love is trauma, vibrating at a level that causes dangerous cortisol release. (I broke the record for high cortisol and measurable body trauma at two different clinics, one in Minneapolis and one in New Mexico.)
I had to heal myself, or I would die. In 2008, with a very severe case of bronchial pneumonia, I came close.
Dr. Christian Fiala probably saved my life. He said, on the phone, “You’re really very sick. You have to take an antibiotic.”
I did, and I recovered. But it was the sense of caring in his voice that I recognized as life calling out to me.
I have learned a lot, since then– a lot– about detoxification, gut repair, re-mineralization, and self-acceptance. I agree with Robert Gallo about one thing: We all have AIDS.
I have seen people cry out on dissident pages on Facebook: “A healthy person doesn’t get pneumonia!” (Often called “PCP pneumonia,” for uncertain reasons, rarely properly diagnosed.) I have seen people say that a mother and child separated, persecuted, and poisoned, would not be enough to explain it.
When I was 6 years old, I was traumatically separated from my mother, and developed a pneumonia that took 9 months to clear up. I was also hospitalized with malnutrition, and fed intravenously. I had turned to sugar, to comfort myself.
You might say I had “AIDS” when I was a child. There was no HIV test then.
Fear, separation, trauma, social alienation, sugar, poor diet–YES, these things alone can kill a human being. So, the most important thing is to focus on the frequency: Love is a measurable frequency, (528 hz) shared also, allegedly, by chlorophyl. Grass.
Show me “AIDS” where there has been: Love, protection, nourishment, community, safety, joy.
This is not the “poetic space” of the “dissident movement.” This is the emerging science of quantum physics and the teachings of inspirational healers, who never heard of Peter Duesberg or The Perth Group. Similarly, you won’t hear many “dissidents” quoting Wayne Dyer or Anita Moorjani. (Author of Dying To Be Me.) Everybody, these days, seems to know that microbes don’t “cause” disease and that healing is a matter of being self-accepting, well nourished, and de-toxified. It’s mainstream.
The “dissident movement” as it came to be known, formalized, and attacked– was mostly academic, secular, rational, and fairly cool, emotionally. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But it rejected, in its way, the importance of “nutrition,” on the emerging health epiphanies of the alternative health movements. I have lived to see first hand that yes, sugar can kill you. Intestinal health is everything. Make that: Everything.
No, it was not enough to ask what if everything you thought you knew about AIDS was wrong? But it was a great, great start.
I stand here as one voice, one person. No movement, no nothing. If you convey to me any version of accusation, or tell me you now blame Peter Duesberg and the dissidents for all they were “wrong” about, because somebody close to you died, yet you took no steps to research or implement gut repair, or to take personal responsibility for said health–well….
I don’t receive accusations anymore. I don’t receive shame anymore. I don’t take responsibility for any “movements” or scientists, what they said or didn’t say. I take responsibility only for my own utterances. I can tell you only what I think and have observed.
The most painful trauma I uncovered in my own trauma healing journey was how it felt to be “accepted” only when I held certain positions. To be made into a thing, an object. To be mistaken for a propagandist. The notion that there are shards of “belief” that, when modified, or changed, can turn a person into what Orwell called an “un-person,” is the most offensive thing I can think of between humans.
I am not what I reported. My value is not embedded in the answers to questions I posed or forged. There is no shame in an open journey from ignorance to knowledge, and if you try to shame me, because you’ve changed your mind or what have you, I will consider it your problem, and enjoy the time suddenly freed up by not being in a false friendship with you anymore.
Strong words, but shame is not something I allow in my house of healing anymore.
You honor people’s process of discovery, if you honor them at all.
NOBODY IS GUILTY OF ANYTHING.
A new healing discussion opens in this space, today, here at The Truth Barrier. Come join us if you:
–Take full responsibility for your health and healing.
–Do not consider that any outside forces either made you sick or can make you well
–Abstain from verbal and mental violence in all forms
–Are willing to help in an active way, the formation of a model of health in the post AIDS world, for the syndrome called AIDS, and many other related syndromes
–Accept that there is one universal human body, governed by biological laws, and no special “gay” body or “straight” body.
–Speak your mind in the moment something occurs to you. No hoarding resentments quietly and then springing them on people in times of stress.
–Keep an open mind
—Commit to health regimens with a proven track record, or, if you don’t, don’t blame anybody else.
–It’s your ship.
Now I share Raymund Ban’s email, as he wrote it:
What Is Working In Korea In A Group Who Previously Experienced Failure
Below is my personal study of the link between the gut health, gluten intolerance, mineral deficiency and HIV issue based on long time inspection of HIV positive people in Korea.
Why do some of HIV positive people get sick and their health deteriorates day by day? You can get a first clue if you read this. This is from the RA conference 2008, by Tony Lance. I shouted ‘Eureka’ when I heard this. It stroke me like a flash, “Yes, Mr.Kim in our community (Korean dissident group) was suffering the chronic, severe constipation. Ms.Lee was always suffering the diarrhea….with no exception.”
Since then, I recommended probiotics and fermented food to our community members. YES, it worked. But had a limit. They could slower the deterioration of health. But they could not perfectly avoid deterioration.
Now I carefully say:I got the final solution.
You have to read this first. (cited from Dr. Peter Glidden’s THE MD EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES)
…The digestive tract in a human is called the alimentary canal. It is basically one long tube that starts in the mouth and ends in the butt. The part of the alimentary tract that is immediately downstream from the stomach is the small intestine. The function of the small intestine is to absorb the food that we have eaten and deliver it into the blood stream.
Approximately 20 feet long and 1.5 inches in diameter (in an adult male), the small intestine is lined with millions of structures called “villi.” They number anywhere from 6,000-25,000 per square inch! The villi look like octopus tentacles, and at their tips they are covered with hundreds of “Micro-villi.” The micro-villi grab onto passing food molecules and transport them into the blood stream. Kind of like an octopus tentacle reaching out and grabbing onto a passing fish. This is how we absorb nutrients into the body. This is also why our belly gets warm after we eat a meal – the friction caused by the action of the villi creates heat.
Individual amino acids are handled by the villi with no problem at all, and are transported into the bloodstream easily. But long chains of undigested amino acids (proteins) are a BIG problem. Imagine a vacuum cleaner trying to suck up 18 strings of pearls that have been twined together and you will get the picture. The villi become damaged from the mechanical action of trying to suck up molecules that are much bigger than they are used to handling. An undigested protein in the intestinal tract is like a “one-two punch”, because, in addition to mechanical damage, it also causes electrical damage, but we have to look at thunderclouds to understand how.
Little puffy white clouds in the sky do not create lightning. BIG thunderclouds do. In the creation of the electrical discharge commonly known as lightning, it is the size of the cloud that matters. Thunderclouds are thousands of times larger than their non-electrical counterparts. The same thing applies with an undigested protein – as above, so below…
An intact, undigested protein is thousands of times bigger than a single amino acid. The relatively large size of the protein gives it an electrical charge. So, as a large undigested protein tumbles through the intestinal tract, it acts like a live wire – zapping every villi and micro-villi that it touches.
If you remember, the function of the villi is to absorb nutrients into the body. So when we destroy villi by the simple act of eating wheat, we impede nutrient absorption.
Then we eat some more wheat. Then we eat some more wheat. Then we have some wheat with dessert. Then we eat some more wheat. Then we get sick and die. It is really that simple. All chronic disease is caused by multiple nutrient deficiencies. Our food DOES NOT CONTAIN all of the 91 essential nutrients that our bodies need in the first place. Now, to add insult to injury, when we eat 100% organic whole wheat bread, like our knuckleheaded nutritionist told us to, our intestinal tracts become damaged, and it becomes harder and harder for us to absorb the limited nutrients that are in the food! If this happens every day, eventually we will end up with multiple nutrient deficiencies – even though we are eating 3 square meals a day! It is only a matter of time until these deficiencies get so big that something breaks. This is how an illness is born. Then we go to our MD, who gives us a symptom suppressive synthetic drug to manage the problem. We feel a little better but we still have multiple nutrient deficiencies, so a little while later, something else breaks.
Back we go to the MD for another prescription drug, or unnecessary surgery. This cycle happens again and again and again…and then we die. Then our MD chalks it all up to a bad gene, and takes a snort of the prescription grade cocaine he has become addicted to. Oh! The humanity!
Inquiring minds want to know – Why is the gluten protein so hard for the stomach to digest?
Other proteins like eggs, meat, chicken, fish and rice are very easy for the stomach to digest. Even a dead person can digest rice! So what is the deal with wheat? I don’t know! Nobody knows!
That’s just the way that it is… It is one of history’s greatest ironies that the “staff of life” is one of the worst foods that humans can eat on a regular basis. There are many theories as to how this has come about. It is a fact that the wheat of today, having been genetically manipulated by agri-business for the last 100 years, is quite a bit different from the wheat of our ancestors.
It is also possible that it is the lack of minerals and nutrients in the diet that contributes to this problem, as these deficiencies have become so epidemic that EVERYONE’s stomach acid is weak as a result. It is also possible that wheat has always been a problem, but the population just never lived long enough for the trouble to come to fruition. Whatever the reason, the sad fact remains that the gluten protein contained in wheat, barley, rye and the protein found in oats, are very dangerous foods to import into the human body, and we would all be better off to avoid them completely. Here is a partial list of the foods that contain gluten and oat protein(this is probably the last time that you will like me…):
· Pie Crust
· Beer!? Beer!
This is more or less EVERYTHING that we eat, most of the time! Then we wash it all down with a Coke. This is why we are all sick, all of the time. Sherlock Holmes was right: “…when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Chronic illness is not caused by a bad gene, or a Gypsy curse, nor is it a function of aging. Chronic disease is caused by chronic nutrient deficiencies. Period! Nutrient deficiencies are accelerated by the destruction of the intestinal villi. Undigested proteins destroy intestinal villi. Therefore the consistent consumption of wheat, barley, rye and oats leads to the generation of chronic disease.
This can be applied to every people. But especially for GLUTEN INTOLERANCE suffering people. My friends who are HIV positive are all suffering from diarrhea after taking ramen, bread, pasta, beer, etc. I got the conclusion that they are all gluten intolerance patients. Then, why does gluten intolerance emerge in such a various symptoms? Nobody knows. You have to read by Stephen Wangen to get the more detailed information about gluten intolerance.
Anyway, you have to get off gluten. ‘Obsessively’ get off gluten with no cheat. It is the first step to recovery of health. After getting off gluten, we need nutrients. As I’ve cited, All chronic disease is caused by multiple nutrient deficiencies. If our body is supplied with enough nutrient, our body fixes itself. I cite my friend Alison Tomlinson’s personal experience. She is not HIV positive, but I saw a miracle in her. I observed similar miraculous improvement in one friend(HIV positive) after taking Youngevity mineral product, and another fascinating improvement in other friend(also HIV positive) after just getting off gluten and taking probiotics.
Here I cite what my friend Alison Tomlinson had said.
HEALTHY HAIR, HEALTHY SKIN, HEALTHY COMPLEXION, HEALTHY HEIGHT, HEALTHY WEIGHT, HEALTHY SHAPE, HEALTHY POSTURE, LEVEL HIPS.
IS THIS ME?
I’ve been in ill-health since the day I was born. I’ve never been able to function at the same level as other people. In 2012 my health completely crashed. I was permanently bent over to the left with my left knee bent in, I could barely walk and I was in pain 24/7. I felt like my life was over. I prayed and prayed. Then I started listening to Dr Joel Wallach:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dlrb-XrMOwE (Celia, you have to hear this, this lecture contains more clear information than the Youtube video I cited last time. I recommend you listen to this lecture with Jeremy again.)
He says that chronic disease is caused by nutritional deficiencies and EVERYBODY is nutritionally deficient, because the food we’re eating does not contain the nutrients we need. When we give the body the nutrients it needs, it FIXES itself.
I took him at his word and did his diet and nutrition programme and LOOK AT ME NOW. At 55 I feel better than I have done in my entire life.
If you’re suffering with ANY chronic disease, please listen to him.
If you’re NOT suffering with any chronic disease, please listen to him.
If the gluten intolerance patient’s gut is destroyed by taking the gluten, the various indigested proteins including gluten would infiltrate into the porous gut and will create the antibodies responding to it. And if the antibodies increase to some level which can result in HIV positive test, they can be diagnosed as HIV positive. It is my conclusion from observing many HIV positive people in Korea for a long time. Most of them are not gay, they have no particular reason to be diagnosed as HIV positive. But they show one common thing-no exception since I began to observe them. Their gut status is the worst. They are showing constant diarrhea or constipation. Nearly every one of them suffers diarrhea or typical gluten intolerance symptoms when they eat the ramen, beer, bread. etc. All of this food contain gluten.
If they do not get off gluten, their gut, their health would deteriorate day by day. That explains why some HIV people get sick as time goes by. The solution of it could be to get off gluten and take the nutrients including indispensable minerals and vitamins.
Our body needs 91 nutrients. Below is the list of that nutrients. If it lacks for even 1 nutrient, our body will suffer from adverse effect.
60 Essential Minerals

16 Essential Vitamins
Vitamin A, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin), Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Biotin, Choline, Flavonoids and Bioflavonoids, Folic Acid, Inositol
12 Essential Amino Acids
Valine, Lysine, Threonine, Leucine, Isoleucine, Tryptophan, Phenylalanine, Methionine, Histidine, Arginine, Taurine, Tyrosine
3 Essential Fatty Acids
Omega 3 (EPA, DHA, ALA)
But as I’ve cited, it is nearly impossible to absorb this 90 nutrients by eating food, because the food lacks for minerals. Our soil is deficient in minerals. When we cultivate plants in the same soil for 3 years, the soil would lose all of its mineral. Then, how can we get the 90 nutrients? I strongly recommend to take the Youngevity Basic pack(It contains all of the 90 nutrients). It’s the second step for recovery of gut and immune system. Since one HIV positive member in our community began taking this product after getting off gluten, he has experienced great improvement in his health. I believe if the gut-destroyed HIV positive people completely get off gluten and take the Youngevity mineral product for a long time, their gut and immune system will recover day by day.
Besides getting off gluten, I strongly recommend to get off 10 bad foods. Here is the list of 10 bad foods you should never eat. You can refer to the appendix III of attached file ‘THE MD EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES’, and below video to know why we should evade these 10 bad foods.
· Oats, oatmeal – even if it says that it is Gluten Free.
· Fried Food
· Oils—cooking or salad. Yes, this includes Olive Oil! NO canola, NO coconut, etc… If it has OIL in the name don’t use it. This also includes anything made from oil, like salad dressing. Dr. Wallach recommends using salt and lemon juice as a salad dressing. No margarine or combo spreads. No mayonnaise. Nothing made from oils.
· Well done meat (rare or medium-rare is ok)
· Deli Meat, any nitrates added to meat – tell your butcher NO NITRATES
· Soda/Pop/Any carbonated beverage with a meal. OK between meals, but should be used rarely.
· Skin of a baked potato (or yam, or sweet potato). If you boil a potato, yam or sweet potato, you can eat the skin.
And I mention the special immune boosting protocol of Dr Joel Wallach. The bolded words mean the name of individual Youngevity products. This can be additional therapy to Basic pack for the immuno-supressed people,
Dr. Wallach’s Immune Support Protocol
75% of our immunity is located in the gastrointestinal system. As a result, when an immune
problem is present, we need tofocus on both digestive and immune support.
(1) Healthy Digestion Pack 2.0 per 100 lbs. –One pack is a must to get all 90 essential nutrients. If budget is an issue, add extra BTT 2.0 as appropriate for body weight.
(2) 3-5 Selenium per 100 lbs. of body weight and up to 1 bottle of Selenium per 50 lbs. per month stopping at 4 bottles a month regardless of weight. Make sure to listen to the “Selenium” CD by Dr. Gerhard Schrauzer—a world renowned expert on Selenium.
(3) Imortalium–6 per day in most cases. Imortalium has nutrients shown to increase the glutathione activity (the body’s repair mechanism particularly for soft tissue) by over 300%. Visit www.imortalium.comand listen to this recording with Steve Wallach and Richard Renton http://tinyurl.com/nrrkuzlfor more information.
(4) Restart Your Life Beta Glucan–These products help to boost the immune system’s ability to identify invaders and fight them. With our immune system, not every cell responds when there is an invader. One way the researchers explain this is that only 30% of the immune system “sees” the invader. But with the Beta Glucan, now up to 70% of our immune system can “see” and respond to the invaders without increasing the inflammation response. The RVB 300 is used for Daily Immune Support at 1 capsule per 110 lbs. The RYL 500 is for those who want or need additional immune support at 1 capsule per 55 lbs. These products are best takenon an empty stomach–30 minutes before eating or 2 hours after. Visit www.vitawithimmunity.comfor more information.
(5) 50,000-100,000 ORAC points per day-BTT 2.0: 8,000 per 2 scoops, Triple Treat Chocolate: 16,945 per piece, Cell Shield RTQ: 8,000 per capsule, Imortalium: 10,500 per 4 tablets.
(6) 4 bottles of Zradical or Fucoid Z —do as much as budget allows even if only one bottle. Zradical does contain natural fruit sugar, caution is advised with blood sugar challenges—but these fruits are also well known for their immune boosting properties. Listen to this recording to learn more: http://tinyurl.com/ozhp3ql
(7) Oxybody1 oz. 2 or 3 times a day taken on an empty stomach. This product can increase oxygen levels in the blood.
(8) Support the tissue or organ that is affected by the cancer. Examples: If bone is being affected, add in the “secret sauces” of GlucoGel and CM cream for hard tissue support; if the pancreas is affected, add the Sweet-Eze for pancreas support; if the thyroid is affected, add Ocean’s Gold for thyroid support.
(9) Ocean’s Gold -recommendations range from 6 to 12 a day. Research shows that 1 mg of the FrondosideA (found in Sea Cucumbers) reduced cancerous tumors by 40% in only 10 days –without the side effects of radiation.
(10) Extreme Diet Clean-Up to maximize absorption and results. Start by listening to the “Cerial Killers” CD. The basics are gluten free, oat free, and high fiber free, no fried foods, and no vegetable oils or margarines. Do as much organic food and produce as possible, and limit or avoid GMO’s.
Education on Immune Support:
The person affected needs to be a participant in their own healing. The best place to start with somebody new to Dr. Wallach and 90 For Life is with the “Best of Dead Doctors Don’t Lie CD” and then use any of the following tools to learn more (don’t forget the Selenium CD!)
(A.) Go to www.pubmed.govand do a search for Fucoidan and cancer—Fucoidan is the active ingredient in Zradical and Fucoid Z. Also search for Selenium and cancer to see the thousands of published studies on these two amazing substances.
(B.) The Clemson Report –independent research by Clemson University testing for safety, toxicity, and the affect of BTT and Classic on cancer cells: http://tinyurl.com/clemsonreport
(C.) Research on sea cucumber (found in Ocean’s Gold)
(D.) Ask the person who shared this protocol with you for the videos “Understanding the 10 Bad Foods” and “Against the Grain” by Dr. Peter Glidden to learn more about the Good Food Bad Food List and Diet Clean-Up.
Lastly, I’d like to say this.
You can take the probiotics and fermented food to enhance the gut health. Yes, it is desirable. But If you don’t get off gluten completely, just taking the probiotics and fermented food can be a meaningless endeavor. It is like throwing the small pebbles towards the rushing elephant to you.
Dr. Joel Wallach, Dr Peter Glidden are not HIV skeptic doctors, and as far as I know, they have never said that their protocol can be of help to HIV positive people.
But I know they are the best in the world as to the nutrients(mineral) issue. The link between gut health, gluten intolerance, nutrients(especially mineral) deficiency and HIV issue is just from my personal study based on long time observation of HIV positive people in Korea.
I’m not a doctor and I cannot prescribe any specific treatment to any person, but I strongly feel, and carefully say that my findings can be fundamental solution to the HIV positive people, whose health is deteriorating day by day. And I really saw great improvement in some of my friends who are HIV positive.
