Alkaline Soup

This is a strong soup which is heavily laden with plenty of minerals and is especially good to start a basic diet with. It will also correct a poor diet or can be the liquid to drink in a crash diet.

Ones body will become more alkaline, and the raw egg yolk yields fat of a high quality, which the body needs for hormone synthesis, e.g. adrenaline synthesis, which is very important during a time of exhaustion and recovery.

This explains why there is an extraordinarily stimulating effect from having a coup of soup in the morning. It eliminates acid and will help to improve day and night rhythms, which are often very much disturbed in cases of adrenaline exhaustion.



  • Celery
  • Green Beans (Fresh or quick frozen)
  • Zucchini
  • Eventually potatoes (especially in wintertime)

Take equal amounts of all vegetables and cut them in small pieces.

Cook the vegetables for about 15 to 20 minutes. Take them (the vegetables, toss out or compost) out of the water and add some vegetarian broth to it. Never use meat broth or salt.

Add a raw egg yolk to it, after the liquid has cooled down to 85 - 105 degrees so the valuable egg yolk components will not become denatured (half an egg yolk per person or big cup of soup).

The soup should be consumed the same day or at latest the following day.

Try this. You will be surprised by the stimulating effect.

Hippocrates Soup Causes Knee Pain

My knee began to hurt on November 11th. But it wasn't because of anything physical that I did. It turns out I was hurting it by drinking Hippocrates soup!

This is how I figured out it was due to drinking Hippocrates soup:

On August 4th my friend, Elizabeth, started buying from me my homemade green soup and Hippocrates soup, which I have been making and drinking since I began the Fast Diet in March.

Then, on August 25th, Elizabeth told me she just wanted the green soup because she is allergic or something to night shade vegetables and the Hippocrates soup is mostly night shades (tomatoes and potatoes).

As November went by with no improvement in my knee I was wracking my brain about what on earth could be causing my knee pain. I could hardly bend my right knee without excruciating pain and had to go up and down steps one step at a time. I was limping when I walked and getting down on the bathroom floor for my daily coffee enema was a real challenge.

Then, last Saturday, December 7th, I was visiting with Elizabeth and, just to make conversation, I asked her what her sensitivity to night shade vegetables was exactly. She said it gave her joint pain.

I thought, My God, I've been drinking 8 ounces of night shade vegetable soup (Hippocrates soup) daily for nine months! Could that be why my knee is so sore?

I thanked her for telling me and said I was going to stop drinking it to see if helped my knee.

Elizabeth was certain it would and she was right! As soon as I stopped drinking it (I had already had my 8 ounces that Saturday) my knee gradually got better and today, Sunday December 15, 2013, my knee is back to normal.

There's a good write-up about night shade vegetables at:

Needless to say, I will no longer be making or drinking Hippocrates soup.

Dr. Gerson’s Hippocrates Soup

  • 1 big or 2 small fresh organic leeks
  • 1 pound fresh organic potatoes or several small ones
  • 1 1/2 pounds organic fresh tomatoes
1 large organic onion or 2 small onions
  • 1 sm/medium organic celery knob (I have found that
the smaller, fresher knobs are more delicately flavored)
or 3 to 4 stalks organic celery
1 small parsley root (if unavailable, can substitute
 3/4 of a bunch of sprigs of organic parsley)
  • You can add small amounts of fresh pressed raw organic garlic to taste
  • Note: Instead of (or in addition to) garlic you may add the contents of one (or more) of Cayenne Company's Heart Food Caps capsules (each one contains 100,000 hu Cayenne fruit, Garlic, Hawthorn Berry, Onion and Ginger Root). This adds such a wonderful flavor that every time I drink the soup I'm thrilled that I tried it. Everyone at our house agrees that it was a terrific idea.
  • PC200

  • Note #2: When adding the contents of the Heart Food Caps capsule mix it first with a small amount of distilled water and then add it to the soup.

 Don’t peel any of the vegetables as many of the minerals and nutrients are stored directly beneath the skin. Scrub vegetables carefully, cut into small pieces, place them into a stainless steel pot, add enough distilled water to cover the vegetables, cover, bring to a boil and quickly turn down heat and cook SLOWLY, covered, at low heat for 3 hours, then mash and eat.

Every week I make a double batch of soup in a 8 quart (or larger) pot and Dale (or Sandy) helps me grind it in our VitaMix (it takes several VitaMix cups to get it all ground and, after each cup is ground (we grind each cup for 90 seconds) we mix it all together in another stainless steel pot). After it's thoroughly mixed I ladle it into quart mason jars, put the lids on, allow the jars to cool, and freeze six jars and put two jars in the refrigerator.

Everyone at our house eats a bowl of this soup or the green soup at least once a day.

Note from Another Hippocrates Soup Lover: "It’s hard for anyone to say why this soup holds such particular power. I have attempted to creatively alter the recipe and not received the same results. Is it the placebo effect? I’m not sure. But even Dr. Gerson remarked that this soup was very special and highly effective in his (cancer recovery) regimen even if he wasn’t absolutely sure of the dynamics."

Anna’s Perfect Green Soup

Makes 8 servings, about 1 1/4 cups each

Total Time: about 1 hour

    • 2 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish
    • 2 yellow onions, chopped
    • 1 tsp. salt, divided
    • 1/4 cup arborio rice
    • 1 lb greens: green chard, kale, mustard greens, or beet greens
    • 14 cups gently packed spinach (about 12 oz.)
    • 4 cups vegetable broth (Click here for Bonnie's Organic Vegetable Broth Recipe)
    • Big pinch cayenne pepper (Note from Bonnie: I use the contents of one capsule of The Cayenne Company's Heart Food Caps)


  • 1 tbs. lemon juice, or more to taste

1. Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Add onions and 1/4 tsp. salt; cook, stirring, until onions begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add 2 tbs. water, and cover. Cook stirring frequently, until onions are greatly reduced and have a caramel color, 25 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, combine 3 cups water, remaining 3/4 tsp. salt, and rice in soup pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover, and cook 15 minutes. Trim ribs and tough stems from the greens and spinach; discard. Coarsely chop greens and spinach.

3. When rice has cooked 15 minutes, stir in greens. Return to a simmer; cover and cook 10 minutes. When onions are caramelized, stir a little greens' simmering liquid into them; immediately add them to rice along with spinach, broth, and cayenne. Return to a simmer, cover and cook until spinach is tender but still bright green, about 5 minutes more.

4. Puree soup in pot with immersion blender until perfectly smooth, or in regular blender in batches. Stir in lemon juice and garnish with olive oil.

I modified the recipe to be vegan as Dale is strictly vegan (no oil) and I found like it best made that way (I skip the part where you caramelize the onion and just put it into the pot with the other vegetables). For the garlic I use the contents of one of The Cayenne Company's Heart Food Caps capsules (contains 100,000 hu Cayenne Fruit, Garlic, Hawthorn Berry, Onion and Ginger Root). To save time I make a double (or triple) recipe and, while it’s hot, I pour it into quart Mason jars (8 quarts) and, after it cools, I freeze six of them and take one or two out of the freezer daily or as we need them. All three of us eat the soup at least once a day and I eat it two times a day on my fast days.

Alkalizing Soup Recipe

This is a strong soup, which is heavily laden with organic minerals and is especially good when starting a basic weight loss diet. It will also correct a poor diet or can be the liquid to drink in a crash diet.

One’s body will become more alkaline, and the raw egg yolk yields fat of a high quality, which the body needs for hormone synthesis, e.g. adrenaline synthesis, which is very important during a time of exhaustion and recovery.

This explains why there is an extraordinarily stimulating effect from having a cup of homemade alkalizing soup in the morning. It eliminates acid and will help to improve day and night rhythms, which are often very much disturbed in cases of adrenaline exhaustion.

Preparation — Ingredients:

Caution: Do not “soak” vegetables when rinsing as soaking leaches the minerals from them.

  • Celery (Organic, if possible)
  • Green Beans (Fresh or quick frozen) (Organic, if possible)
  • Zucchini (Organic, if possible)
  • Potato skins, (cut the skin off the potato leaving one inch of potato under the skin, then toss out the center of the potato and cut the potato skins into cubes.) (Organic, if possible)
  • Greens (Optional — for variety): 1 or 2 large leaves of any greens, such as collard, mustard, kale, turnip, carrot tops, beet tops, or a half bunch of parsley (Organic, if possible)
  • Leeks (Optional) as many as you like (Organic, if possible)
  • Cabbage (Optional) ½ head (Organic, if possible) (Note: “A rib of celery in the pot will reduce the smell of sulfur,” Judith Hiatt, Cabbage Cures To Cuisine, 1989)
  • Three to four quarts distilled water (Use more water if you are using more than 4 cups vegetables)
  • Take equal amounts of all vegetables and cut them in small pieces.
  • Place one cup each of the cut up vegetables and several quarts distilled water into a stainless steel pot (Never use aluminum or teflon coated cookware) and turn on heat.
  • Bring pot to a light boil, and then reduce heat. Simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Allow pot to cool, strain and throw away or compost the vegetables, keeping only the organic mineral-laden liquid. (Place the pot in cold water in the kitchen sink to cool the soup, which will allow you to bottle and refrigerate it more quickly.)
  • To each cup you drink add half of a raw egg yolk, after the liquid has cooled down to 85 — 105 degrees so the valuable egg yolk components will not become denatured (Half an egg yolk per person or per one big cup of soup). (When drinking soup at a later time, bring each cup of soup to a boil before drinking.)

The soup should be consumed the same day or you may store the leftover soup — that does not have raw egg yolk in it — in glass bottles or in Tupperware bowls in the refrigerator and drink it, after bringing it to a boil, no more than five days after making it.

This alkalizing soup is good without the egg yolk as well. Some prefer to add the raw egg yolk to the soup only in the morning and drink another cup or two between meals without the raw egg yolk added.

Try this. You will be surprised by the stimulating effect (and the improvement in your digestion, especially if you have digestion problems).

Note: Drink Alkalizing Soup three hours after eating a meal containing protein and wait an hour after drinking it before eating a meal containing protein. The stomach, to produce stomach acid for protein digestion, uses organic sodium, but when alkalizing minerals are consumed too soon after a meal containing protein or too soon before a meal containing protein, they will neutralize the stomach acid and stop the digestion of the protein.

The chef at the Foxhollow Clinic in Kentucky gave us this wonderful recipe in 2002 and gave credit for it to Dr. Thomas Rau, Chief Medical Director, Paracelsus Klinik, Center for Paracelsus Biological Medicine and Dentistry in Lustmuhle, Switzerland.

We have been drinking this soup for several years. We drink it in the morning and we also use it as the base for a vegetable soup with fresh vegetables added and cooked slightly.

Everyone has a favorite optional vegetable added to the original recipe. Mine is the leek; without it the soup just isn’t as tasty. I also like to bring out more flavors by simmering the vegetables for up to an hour and I like to eat the vegetables, so I don’t always “toss them out.” Sandy likes the cabbage and potato skins added. And Dale goes outside the recipe altogether and includes peas and carrots. So, over the years our recipe has changed except for the basic three: celery, zucchini and green beans. The only optional vegetables we do not use are the bitter greens. Our advice is to experiment and find out what tastes best to you.

Organic Sodium is Abundant in Homemade Alkalizing Soup

Found only in food, organic sodium is needed for utilization of oxygen.

Lack of organic sodium can cause the following problems: lack of hydrochloric acid, indigestion, weak muscles and tissues, stiff and misshapen joints, arthritis, osteoporosis, difficult breathing, catarrh or mucous, lack of saliva, sleepy during the day and awake at night, feeling good one day and bad the next, slow digestion, constipation, gas in stomach and bowels, palpitation, liver trouble, weak eyesight, nerves on fire, judgment unreliable, stiff joints, bloating, gas in bowels, dry skin, confusion, frontal headache, offensive breath, poor concentration, weak heart, emotional ups and downs, and a poor complexion.

Lack of organic sodium is the forerunner of most chronic and degenerative diseases, such as AIDS, cancer blood diseases and many other diseases, because it is one of the most important, if not the most important buffer of acids for the body. Ninety-nine people out of 100 are lacking organic sodium.

Good sources of organic sodium are celery, black mission figs, carrots, beets, all greens (collard, mustard, kale, turnip, carrot tops, beet tops), and parsley.

Sodium chloride or table salt has the opposite effect of organic sodium

Stay away from sodium chloride as if your life depended on it.

Table salt causes organic sodium to be taken out of the body, and causes more damage to normal intestinal mucosa than any other substance! The body cannot use the inorganic minerals found in sea salt, table salt or sodium chloride. These inorganic minerals are extremely harmful to us — they cause hardening of the arteries, heart trouble, digestive problems, and they extract helpful organic minerals from our bodies! Some people may temporarily feel better taking in certain types of sodium chloride, but only because of the stimulating toxic effect it has on the body — similar to refined sugar.

A doctor-prescribed low-sodium diet will cause more harm than good, unless it only restricts intake of table salt and encourages the eating of foods containing organic sodium.

The sodium in table salt pushes calcium into the urine and increases the risk of developing “calcium citrate” kidney stones. You might think someone with calcium kidney stones should stay away from calcium-rich foods such as cheese, milk and other dairy products. However, that isn’t necessary, and, in fact, it promotes stone formation. If you develop calcium citrate kidney stones you can — and should — eat cheese and drink milk. The best way to get rid of calcium kidney stones is to increase your intake of organic alkalizing minerals.

Organic calcium is abundant in Homemade Alkalizing Soup

Calcium is a vital mineral that helps maintain strong teeth and bones. Calcium has also been known to assist in alleviating the chances of certain types of cancers.

A study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, June 2007, reported that women taking 1,400 to 1,500 mg of calcium per day had a 47% lower incidence of cancer when compared with those taking a placebo. (Note: Better results were achieved when Vitamin D was taken with the calcium.)

The Washington University School of Medicine found in another study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2007 that calcium from food is better absorbed by the human body than calcium from supplements. Women who took an average of 830 mg of calcium from food had higher bone density in their spines and hips than women who averaged 1,030 mg of calcium daily from pills.

For most people, a daily intake between 1000 and 1500 mg of calcium is recommended. Dairy products are good sources of calcium. An 8-ounce glass of milk contains about 300 mg of calcium. Two slices of firm cheeses, such as American, Swiss, cheddar or mozzarella have about as much calcium as a glass of milk. Softer cheeses, like cottage cheese, most often contain ? to ½ this amount of calcium per serving. Almonds contain 100 mg in a 2-ounce serving (soak raw almonds in distilled water for 5 to 8 hours before eating as this will remove their enzyme inhibitors making them easier to digest).

Calcium from supplements or added to juice and cereal can cause more harm than good as the body cannot use inorganic calcium due to the molecules being too large.

The only supplemental minerals that are recognized by the body as organic are those found in food (the result of the photosynthesis action of the sun on growing plants) and Water Oz colloidal minerals (made by a highly technical, revolutionary process with a laser and then treated with ozone gas, which produces an angstrom size mineral that is water soluble and able to grow crystals as are minerals from plants). (Please see our Product List for Water Oz Minerals. Water Oz “Water of Life” contains 72 colloidal trace minerals.)

Organic potassium is abundant in Homemade Alkalizing Soup

Potassium is the principal positive ion inside of the cells of the body and is used in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, and normal kidney function.

Potassium is effective in lowering blood pressure. Just a one to two percent reduction translates into a reduced risk of strokes. Potassium also helps reduce the incidence of kidney stones, heart arrhythmias, and decreases the risk of cancer.

Potassium benefits bones by neutralizing acids in the bloodstream, which stops the leaching of calcium from our bones.

There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for potassium. The minimum amount per day for adults is 2,000 milligrams, although many experts advise that a better minimum level would be around 3,500 milligrams. A low intake is defined as about 2,500 milligrams a day or less, while 4,000 to 4,500 milligrams a day is considered to be high. The typical U.S. diet provides about 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams a day.

Bring the Body’s pH into Balance with Homemade Alkalizing Soup

Drinking mineral-rich homemade alkaline soup is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your health. It is one of the best methods of bringing the body’s pH into balance, increasing cell respiration, and improving digestion. Alkaline soup will greatly assist the body in bringing both excess acidity and alkalinity back to normal. It will give the body many different organic angstrom size minerals especially the big three — organic sodium, organic potassium, and organic calcium. These are the most important minerals in today’s society, because we take in too many acid-forming foods as well as acid-forming chemicals in our food and air. All drugs, whether prescribed or over-the-counter, and all infections, whether acute or chronic, cause a dangerous acidic condition in the body. Acids are also produced by worry, stress and other emotional problems. An over acid body exhausts our adrenal glands, which leads to a compromised immune system. The best way to solve the problem of over acidity is to drink at least two cups of alkalizing soup every day.

Drink Homemade Alkalizing Soup

If we are to avoid disease, including cancer, the most important step we must take is to take in enough alkalizing minerals to keep the body free of wastes and toxins. The easiest and quickest way to do this is to drink homemade alkalizing soup containing only food-derived organic alkalizing minerals. (Food-derived alkalizing minerals are referred to here as, “organic” sodium, “organic” calcium, and “organic” potassium, whether or not the food has been “organically” grown.)

Too much acid in the body is due to:

  • Normal oxidization of the food we eat
  • Drinking beverages containing acid minerals (colas, etc.)
  • Inorganic minerals in food, beverages or supplements (tap, well or mineral water and/or mineral supplements as pills or added to food and beverages)
  • Eating or drinking acid containing foods and beverages (citrus fruit, other acid fruit, tomatoes, vinegar, mustard, catsup, chili sauce, barbecue sauce, soy sauce, salad dressings, pickles, etc.)
  • Chemicals and soot in the air we breathe
  • Food additives [Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Aspartame, (Equal, NutraSweet), High Fructose Corn Syrup, etc.]
  • Waste products created by bacterial and/or fungal infections
  • Drugs (prescribed or over-the-counter)
  • Emotional stress

Not eating or drinking enough food-derived organic alkalizing minerals to remove the acid (acidic wastes and toxins are disposed of by the body in liquid form, as urine or perspiration, after first being dissolved into the blood. They are ultimately placed in the body by the blood and can come out of the body by first being dissolved into the blood and then being carried out in the urine and perspiration. This process can only be accomplished when there are enough food-derived organic alkalizing minerals in the blood).

An over acid body causes our teeth and bones to lose density and our bones and joints to develop osteoporosis, arthritis and gout (arthritis and gout are caused by uric acid deposited between the joints, non-dissolved due to the low alkalinity of the blood); our digestion to be impaired; our liver, spleen, and pancreas to weaken; our immune system to falter; and our adrenal glands to become exhausted.

Our blood must maintain a pH of 7.4 (pH stands for “potential of Hydrogen” and measures how acidic or alkaline our body fluids are on a scale of 0 (100% acidic) — to 14 (100% alkaline).

For the body to remain healthy every cell must stay within a certain pH range: when they have a pH lower than 7 it means the body is too acidic, which is dangerous; when they are between 7, which is neutral, and 7.5 it means the body is slightly alkaline, which is good.

However, even neutral is not acceptable for the blood. If the blood pH becomes even slightly more acid than it should be, and drops below 7.2, the body will be near death. If you do not pass pH saliva and/or urine pH test(s), your blood pH usually still remains balanced, because the body does everything in its power to prevent death.

To prevent an imbalance in the blood pH, the body will ‘rob’ alkalizing minerals from other areas of the body where there is a supply (the teeth and bones). This then weakens those areas.

When we consistently accumulate more acid than alkaline minerals, our bodies use up our alkalizing minerals, which are primarily organic sodium, organic potassium and organic calcium.

The body must have these minerals to carry the dangerous acids out of the body. Most people have run short of these valuable minerals and have become dangerously over-acid (pH is too low), or even worse, over-alkaline (pH is too high). An over-alkaline problem only develops after a long-standing over-acid condition, and both problems stem from a deficiency of organic alkalizing minerals.

Using "The Clark Method" Newsletter

by Bonnie O'Sullivan
July/August 1997 Number 16

Dear Friend,
Dr. Clark lets nothing interfere with her on-going research and keeping her readers informed. Her August 1997 updated book The Cure For HIV and AIDS is now available. This is the second time the HIV and AIDS book has been updated and it now contains 543 pages (to order your copy please see The Road To Health Order Form enclosed).
The updates include a 24 page conversation between Dr. Clark and Dr. Jerome about teeth with pictures of teeth and panoramic X-rays of teeth, a list of foods that do and do not contain malonic acid (and an explanation of why malonic acid is bad for humans), directions for using Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for killing tapeworms, and a "Mop-Up Program" which was developed for those who did not get well after using the herbal parasite program, the zapper, and CoQ10. The Mop-Up Program deals with survivor Ascaris (round worm) eggs and/or leftover tapeworm larvae that until now seemed shielded from all things that might harm them. Dr. Clark has found that unless you kill every grain of the leftover shielded Ascariseggs and/or tapeworm larvae, you cannot get well. The Mop-Up Program consists of ozonated olive oil and L-cysteine. (Please see Dr. Clark's Parasite Elimination Program, Revised 8/25/97 enclosed. For further supplements, new tests, recipes, and case histories please see the updated book)

Dr. Clark Answers Your Questions
1st Question: When will updates of The Cure For All Diseases and The Cure For All Cancers be available?
Dr. Clark: I'm working on The Cure For All Cancers now. Can't give a date.
2nd Question: Are you going to offer an Addendum to The Cure For All Diseases and The Cure For All Cancers until they are updated?
Dr. Clark: No Addendums are planned at this time.
3rd Question: Are you now accepting new cancer patients at your clinic, The International Diagnostic Center, in Tijuana Mexico?
Dr. Clark: No. We are still on hold until the new location is ready.
4th Question: Is your telephone number in Mexico still 011-526-630-8732?
Dr. Clark: No. When we have a new one I will let you know for publication.
5th Question: I understand that Self Health Resource Center has moved to 1055 Bay Blvd., #A, Chula Vista, CA 91911. Telephone: (619) 409-9500 and fax (619) 409-9501 but the 800 number for ordering products is the same: 800-873-1663. Is this correct?
Dr. Clark: Yes.
6th Question: Has Oxycal, makers of Ester-C, has dropped their lawsuit against you?
Dr. Clark: No. We reached a settlement in which I would not refer to "Ester-C." I will talk about "esterified" or analogs of Vitamin C.
7th Question: A researcher by the name of Terry Choy, of San Francisco, has announced that he has discovered that better results are achieved when treating parasites if the herbs are started exactly five days before a full moon. Have you experimented with this theory?
Dr. Clark: No, but there are numerous influences of the moon on living creatures. This deserves further investigation.
8th Question: Since MSM [Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (CH3)2 SO2] is a "methyl compound" a reader wants to know: Do you have any objections to people taking MSM?
Dr. Clark: I have not worked with it, so cannot give an opinion.
9th Question: Does aluminum seep into the milk from the lining of the containers (it looks like they are lined with aluminum foil) of 2% milk?
Dr. Clark: Yes, choose a non-metalized container.
10th Question: I am successfully growing the wormwood plants but the leaves are all different sizes. 1) Can you be more specific in how much to use? 2) Do the leaves have to turn silver before they are potent or can you use them when they are green? 3) Do you have to dry them first?
Dr. Clark: 1) No. 2) You can probably use them when they are green. 3) Probably not.
It is important for someone to do this kind of investigation and let all of us know.
11th Question: Which is the better chelator EDTA or Thioctic acid? Does one remove more toxins than the other?
Dr. Clark: Thioctic acid is not described in the literature as a chelator, so EDTA is undoubtedly "better." But thioctic acid is described as capable of removing unusual and potent toxins. These are complicated issues with no simple answer.
12th Question: For a person with clogged arteries where there is calcium buildup, do either EDTA or Thioctic acid help remove the calcium? If not, what would be best?
Dr. Clark: Such a buildup is thought to be due to primary damage to the artery wall. Chelation therapy has a good track record for this.
13th Question: There is a doctor in Ohio who follows your advice and thinks you are brilliant. He said that sometimes blood clots are actually clumps of parasites. Do you know anything about this? If you do, would you use the Zapper to clear the blood clots?
Dr. Clark: This is certainly possible. But I have not researched it and can't comment. Zapping should be useful here.
14th Question: Does the Zapper kill viroids (they are much smaller than viruses)? If not, do you have any suggestions on how to kill them?
Dr. Clark: I wish I could get a specimen! I would try it at once. Does anybody know a source, like a veterinarian, who would provide a specimen? (See my enclosed letter.)
15th Question: Are there any illnesses or situations where you would not use the Zapper? For example, in cases of "edema" where the lungs fill with water, or with heart diseases?
Dr. Clark: I have not seen any bad effects with either of these situations. Consult with health practitioner if worried.
16th Question: I have a tooth that needs a root canal but I seem to be able to keep the pain under control with zapping. I believe you would say to have the tooth pulled instead of having a root canal, but if zapping will do the job, why have it pulled?
Dr. Clark: No tooth ever needs a root canal! An infected tooth should be pulled. Don't rely on zapping because you might erroneously think the problem is gone.
17th Question: Can a person zap (the 61 minute 3X cycle) more than once a day?
Dr. Clark: Yes. No harm seen on indefinite zappings.
18th Question: I am a physical therapist and saw you, along with my child, in December 1994. I had psoriasis and my child had a harsh chronic cough. You tested us and said we both had round worms and that I had kidney stones as well. You recommended that I do the kidney cleanse for six weeks and then do the liver cleanse. I was also to use the Zapper three times per week. I have tried doing the kidney cleanse over and over but it does not agree with me. Each time I have to stop after three days because of uncontrollable gas and diarrhea. Consequently, I have never gotten to the liver cleanse. Can you recommend another approach?
Dr. Clark: When the kidney cleanse "does not agree" it usually means there are bacteria in the herbal preparation. Try a fresh batch, bring to a boil each morning to kill new bacteria. Start by sipping slowly throughout the day. Let me know how this goes.
19th Question: I have been doing extensive malonic acid food testing with my syncrometer. I have come to the conclusion that the problem is in the soil the food is grown in or the water it is irrigated with. I have found both good and bad tomatoes, carrots, papaya and cantaloupe. I found bad white potatoes (the kind with the very thin skin). The bad papaya and cantaloupe had the problem in the seeds and the flesh of the seed bed. Carefully scraping out these parts and rinsing left a lot of good eating in these large fruits. All southern grown watermelons have tested good. Locally (Roswell, GA) grown cantaloupe also tested good. All watermelons from California have tested bad. Here again, if you can get the seeds and surrounding flesh out, the rest is good. I found if you leave the dirt on the food you will get a negative reading. Have you experienced this in your testing?
Dr. Clark: Yes, it is the watermelon seeds, not the flesh: this will be in next printing. Your work is most appreciated. Results like these should go into a separate "Malonic Newsletter." Let me hear from you.
20th Question: I have a reflexology clinic in Canada. I have a young patient (a boy of 15) who, in the past, had a meningococcus infection and bled through all of his orifices and skin. The result was his kidneys died (presumably from lack of blood?). He still passes water through the kidneys but is on dialysis. With time and reflexology and by using the Zapper (the rest of the family has not used the Zapper, nor their large dogs) he has grown beautifully and is very healthy. He prays to regain the use of his kidneys and get off dialysis. His kidney specialist won't consider cutting down his time or frequency of dialysis to see if his kidneys are able to work better on their own. Do you have any ideas, suggestions or case histories like this?
Dr. Clark: It is not a good idea to "see if his kidneys can manage on their own" because harm to his body could result. My suggestion is to get off malonate-foods since methyl-malonic acid is a well known kidney toxin! Also do the new ozonated-olive oil treatment.
21st Question: What strength Vitamin D do you use at your clinic?
Dr. Clark: 40,000 I.U. per day for 3 weeks, then taken twice a week.
22nd Question: Is blue-green algae okay to take?
Dr. Clark: The concept is fine but how can you get an unpolluted product? Unless the manufacturer reveals the processing chemicals, it is not worth the risk.
23rd Question: Is benzoic acid harmful?
Dr. Clark: Not in small amounts, it is a component of natural food and can be detoxified in these amounts.
24th Question: Is sorbitol harmful?
Dr. Clark: It is used in food, but I have not studied the literature on it.
25th Question: What would be a good preservative for a face cream?
Dr. Clark: I presume this is a homemade face cream. Make a 50% glycerol preservative as described in my books (recipe section). You would need to experiment with amounts. Most glycerine (which is the same as glycerol) has isopropyl pollution so get it from Self Health Resource Center. END

A Letter From Dr. Clark
Dear Bonnie, August 25, 1997
It was good to hear from you. And, thank you for your patience, and of course, your great service to society.
Someone in England is following your example with a similar newsletter for people there, you have probably heard from her already. (Bonnie: Yes, Christine Doyle, United Kingdom, see Success Stories Using The Clark Method, Case #1.)
Regarding question #14, I have an improvement for the parasite program, that is perhaps effective against viroids. I am still working out the details but the broad picture is already in the new HIV book. What is not in the book is that it seems to reach some intracellular parasites like Toxoplasma, and Malaria. If this is true, we might expect viroids to be vulnerable, also. We are in the beginning stages of our research so don't wish to claim any results that might not materialize. The improved treatment is 1 tablespoon ozonated olive oil, simply eaten with food in the usual way. This is followed in a few days by a 2 tablespoon dose and in a few more days by a 3 tablespoon dose. Mixed with vinegar as a dressing or with a vegetable like mashed potatoes is fine. Measure carefully. Don't waste it. These graded doses let you cope with the die-off, since eyes may itch and tear, head feel dull, etc. as the dead matter waits for elimination.
Of course one should do the regular parasite program regularly once a week if the person is ill, and zap daily as well.
But this improved treatment with ozonated olive oil is a one-time treatment at this point. Make it yourself as described in the book.
This treatment is recommended as a "mop-up" for everybody, not just special cases. The results can be remarkable.
Best wishes, Bonnie, Hulda Clark

Success Stories Using The Clark Method
Case #1
Dear Bonnie, June 17, 1997
I have been feeling unwell for some time. The week prior to my period I would have excruciating pain resulting in me being confined to home a lot. My periods were very heavy. My heart was palpitating and irregular. Last October the area under my left breast hurt/stung severely. Clothes hurt if they touched it. The pain went through to my back and I felt stiff around my mid-back. I couldn't bend because I could feel `something there' that I was squashing. I was hot most of the time and lost bladder sensation. If I needed to urinate my tummy would feel uncomfortable around my navel area. I felt sick a lot. I had upper back pains and the muscles in the upper part of both arms seemed useless. I couldn't lift them for more than ½ a minute. I couldn't hold the hairdryer long enough to dry my hair, which was falling out in clumps. My eyesight was blurry at times and I started getting dizzy and falling over. At my worst I was sleeping up to 20 hours out of 24! The pain under both arms and in my breasts was vice like.
My MD was concerned and sent me to hospital as an emergency, they wanted to take X-rays which I refused (my father is dying of radiation sickness). The wait for the alternative ultrasound scan was 2 weeks so I was sent home, the Christmas holidays fell in the middle of this. So my MD funded me to go to a private hospital to have the ultrasound. These were on the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, spleen, and ovaries.
Two weeks before this, I had received Dr. Clark's book The Cure for All Cancers, and my husband made me a Zapper. I got Black Walnut Hull Tincture (BWHT), Wormwood, and Cloves, and started self treatment. The ultrasounds were clear.
An endoscopy followed from which a biopsy was taken of a large area in my stomach (I said it felt the size of an orange the specialist agreed.) They said it would be caused by bugs, and they would find which type and give me drugs. The doctors were amazed when the biopsy showed it was sterile! I was so pleased and feeling better that I kept on with the self treatment.
At one stage I took Dr. Clark's advice and, thinking I had a Tapeworm, downed 20 teaspoons of BWHT, (we could only get 1:5 not 1:2 which would have been 8 teaspoons) and 1 hour later the second 20. I reasoned that if it nearly killed me then it would surely get a worm. Well, after that my symptoms were still all there but lessening in severity. Daily I felt better. I zapped my ovaries each month prior to my period, and all period pains went and the blood flow lightened to a normal level.
I am now working full time and doing two degree courses in Iridology and Nutrition. Friends and family said they thought I was dying. I had been feeling I was dying too! My normally bright green eyes had dulled, now they're back as they were. People were stunned. So I told them what I was doing and they all started on it. Some amazing stories have transpired . . .

Ritalin Discontinued By Use Of Zapper
My 10 year old daughter was diagnosed in October 1995 as having ADD without hyperactivity, and was put on Ritalin which helped her no end, but I didn't like her taking drugs. The Zapper 3 times weekly has eliminated the need for Ritalin and she is fine now without it. A friend has since had the same experience with her 10 year old daughter.

Severe Mouth Fungus Cleared By Use Of Zapper
Another friend has had a marvelous turn-around in her health by using the Zapper. She suffered with Lichen Planus of the mouth. Her tongue had a ½" coating (green) on it and was swollen 2-3 times normal. The insides of her mouth had bubble blisters that broke when she ate, again full of the green pus/slime. She had taken to drinking soups through a straw. At night whilst she slept this green stuff dribbled from her mouth and in the morning she had to peel it from her neck like a thick face mask!
The hospitals tried everything to no avail. The last resort would have been lazer treatment to the tongue, which wouldn't have cleared the mouth sides, but this would have stripped so many layers off the tongue, the taste buds would have been effectively burnt off, and even so, in time the fungus could have re-infected the tongue from the mouth sides.
She started zapping three weeks ago and began to put Lugols on her tongue, and rinsing her mouth with it. In three weeks her tongue has shrunk to its normal size and looks almost clear, and the bubble blisters are drying up. She is thrilled and is trying to get hospital photos of before zapping to send copies to you.

White Cell Count Decreased By Use Of Zapper
Another friend, zapping only, who has had a reoccurrence, after five years, of Non-Hodgkins Lympoma was pleased to find that her white cell count (38) had reduced to 28 and now 16 (normal is 9) in approximately four weeks. She is zapping twice daily.

Case #2
Dear Bonnie, July 1, 1997
My tropical fish had a white fungus around their mouths. The pet store manager said they were as good as dead. I experimented: I put one Zapper handhold in the tank and dipped the other one up and down in the tank rapidly for a minute or two. The fungus disappeared and has not returned in three weeks. The fish are fine! Flora, San Jose, CA

More from Bonnie, August 1997
I'm still taking Neways' Maximol (I've been mixing it with mineral water instead of orange juice for the past two months because the OJ was too acid and it also caused a drop in blood sugar an hour after I drank it). As soon as my twice daily drink was more alkalizing (it includes Cell System One by Body Electric and MSM) I began to have cleansing reactions (headaches). The headaches gradually stopped during the first week and I've been feeling great ever since. (Please see the enclosed article Prevent Disease by Equalizing Your Intake of Acid (H+) and Alkali (OH-) Substances.
The Body Electric company has an essential oil tooth brushing product; Pristine. It's responsible for the improvement in my husbands gums. His gums used to bleed when he brushed but that stopped immediately when he started using Body Electric's Pristine. As well as taking Body Electric's Cell System One (by the way, it's now available in capsules called Beta Matrix) twice a day in our drink, both my husband and I take Body Electric's The Minerals That Work capsules. We know these products help us get the best results when using the Zapper. (We both use the Zapper three times a week.)
Body Electric also has an essential oil for the face: Le Visage Complete. My daughter loves it and even tried to duplicate it using the same ingredients from Young Living Essential Oils but decided the Le Visage Complete was too good to give up.
After the mention, in newsletter 15, about how Clear capsules, the Awareness Corporation's parasite eliminating capsules, are more suitable for cats than Dr. Clark's program, (cats may be allergic to wormwood and the Clear capsules do not contain wormwood), I have had numerous requests for more information. If you want the Awareness Pet Program please write or call me and ask for the Awareness pet information and I will send a new Awareness tape, an article from Veterinarian Magazine about the Awareness Pet Program for dogs, cats and horses, plus a letter to a parrot owner from a Canadian doctor about how to de-parasitize birds.
My newest discovery is Emu oil. I've been using it for two months and I've had wonderful results. Once a day I dab a few drops of emu oil on the backs of my hands and on my face. Several years ago I had several pre-cancerous spots burned off the backs of my hands. The doctor warned me that I would keep getting the spots and that there was nothing I could do about it. He was right about my getting more spots but he was wrong in saying there is nothing that can be done for them. The Emu oil softened them and faded them away during the first month that I used it. Researchers say it's also good for removing scars and varicose veins! Please see Emu Oil: The Undiscovered Secret at the back of this newsletter and, to order Emu Oil, see the Road To Health Order Form.

Note: There was a mistake in the #14 newsletter on page 13: "Tetrazine," a yellow food coloring, was misspelled. The correct spelling of the yellow food coloring is "Tartrazine." (Thank you, Denise Rubens, for spotting the error!)

Dr. Clark's Extra Strength Black Walnut Tincture Recipe
(This recipe is four times as strong as the regular Black Walnut Tincture.)
· Your largest enamel or ceramic (not stainless steel, not aluminum) cooking pot, preferably at least 10 quarts (This sits in a cool, dark place, not the refrigerator!)

· Black walnuts, in the hull, each one still at least 50% green, enough to fill the pot to the top (rinse only with cold tap water and use a brush to get off dirt)

· Grain alcohol, about 50% strength, enough to cover the walnuts (Everclear)

· Vitamin C powder, 1 tsp. plus 1 tsp. per quart of tincture

· Plastic wrap or cellophane (this should never touch the walnuts or the alcohol)

· Glass jars or bottles (Freeze unused walnuts in double plastic ziplock bags)

_ The black walnut tree produces large green balls in the fall. The walnut is inside and we use the whole ball, uncracked, since the active ingredient is in the green outer hull.
_ Rinse the walnuts carefully, put them in the pot, and cover with the alcohol. Sprinkle on 1 tsp. vitamin C. Seal with plastic wrap (with the plastic not touching the nuts or the alcohol, but with very little air in pot) and cover tightly with a lid on top of the plastic. Let sit for three days. Pour into glass jars or bottles until full, discarding walnuts, and add more vitamin C (1 tsp. per quart). This will keep the color green. If the glass jar has a metal lid, first put plastic wrap over the top before screwing on the lid. Potency is strong for several years if unopened, even if it darkens slightly.
_ Refrigerate after opening. Due to oxidation the tincture turns brown quickly when the bottle is opened. Add a little more vitamin C to the bottle as soon as you open it and, if possible, pour it into a smaller bottle so there is no air in with the tincture.


Dr. Clark's Parasite Elimination Program Revised 8/25/97
· Extra Strength Black Walnut Green Hull Tincture (BWT): Measure 2 teaspoons (if you are over 150 pounds, take 2½ tsp.) of the pale green (brown or black is not potent) tincture (extracted using ethyl alcohol only) into a glass with ½ cup of water, add ¼ teaspoon of powdered vitamin C, and drink slowly within 15 minutes (you may add honey or cinnamon). The seriously ill person should initially take this dose several days in a row. After the daily dose regimen, the ill person may skip every other day. After further health improvement, take 2 doses per week. A maintenance level of one dose per week is recommended indefinitely. (Use lukewarm water, not hot, to evaporate the alcohol and take niacinamide 500 mg. to counteract the toxicity of the alcohol.) Family members should also treat themselves with a single dose of BWT every other week to avoid reinfecting the ill patient.
· Clove and Wormwood Capsules: 7 capsules (size 00 or 0) of cloves and 7 capsules of wormwood once a week, in the same day that the BWT mixture is taken. Store-bought ground cloves do not work. The ground cloves must be fresh, so grind your own in a blender or grinder. The wormwood capsules are available as a combination of Artemisia (wormwood) and other herbs. The seriously ill person should initially take this dose several days in a row. After the daily dose regimen, the ill person may skip every other day. After further health improvement, this can be reduced to 2 doses per week. A maintenance level of one dose per week is recommended indefinitely. Family members should also treat themselves with a single dose of clove and wormwood capsules (as well as the BWT) every other week to avoid reinfecting the ill patient.
· Zap with a Zapper: A Zapping session takes 61 minutes (7 min. on, 20 min. off, 7 min. on, 20 min. off, 7 min. on). Zap daily until you are well. No harm has been seen with indefinite zappings (more than one session daily). For maintenance, one session once or twice a week.
· CoQ10: 3-4 grams of the powder, mixed with a little water, once, or every fifth day until you are better. Maintenance dose: 400 mg. daily. Prevent reinfection by eating only well-done meats and boiling milk and butter for 10 seconds (on stove, add a pinch of salt to raise temperature, then, after cooling, add 1/8 tsp. each of baking soda and vitamin C per pint).
· Ozonated Olive Oil: 1 tablespoon ozonated olive oil, simply eaten with food in the usual way. This is followed in a few days by a 2 tablespoon dose and in a few more days by a 3 tablespoon dose. Mixed with vinegar as a dressing or with a vegetable like mashed potatoes is fine. These graded doses let you cope with the die-off, since eyes may itch and tear, head feel dull, etc. as the dead matter waits for elimination. Drink lots of water, take vitamin C, and vitamin E, 400 mg., one a day, two or more hours after the ozonated olive oil (Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants). As a maintenance dose once a week take two tablespoons of ozonated olive oil (including vitamin C, and vitamin E two or more hours later). You must not take this dosage on a daily basis due to the risk of the ozone jumping across from the oil molecules to your fat molecules, aging them too soon (oxidizing them).
· L-Cysteine: 500 mg, 2 capsules, 3 times a day for three weeks, then go off it completely for one week. Cysteine should be the L-variety, not D-cysteine which is unnatural. It may be cysteine hydrochloride or simply free cysteine. You may want to alkalinize yourself during the initial three weeks with ½ tsp. baking soda at bedtime since all sulfur compounds will acidify you. A maintenance dose is 3 capsules daily in divided doses after the one week off.


More About Dr. Clark's Parasite Elimination Program
· Extra Strength Black Walnut Tincture (BWT) and Wormwood: BWT and wormwood kill the adults and developmental stages of at least100 parasites.
· Cloves: Cloves kill the eggs of at least 100 parasites.
· Zapper: Although the herbal parasite killing program is highly effective against parasites, you should also kill them electrically. The Zapper kills all bacteria, parasites (including flukes) and viruses that the Zapper current can reach. Each method (herbs and Zapper) has its own area of greatest effectiveness: the Zapper reaches everywhere the bloodstream travels and the herbs reach into the bowel contents and into gallstones, kidney stones and abscesses.
· CoQ10: CoQ10 is effective against most tapeworm scolices (heads) and eggs.
· Ozonated Olive Oil and L-Cysteine The "Mop-Up" Program:
If you do not get well after the herbal parasite program, Zapping or CoQ10, you can assume you have either survivor Ascaris (round worm) eggs or leftover tapeworm larvae.

· When you kill Ascaris worms by zapping or with the herbal recipe, they are mortally wounded. They are dying, but the eggs inside them are not. They were sheltered. The eggs may do even more harm than the worms. They bring 3 very important pathogens with them: Rhizobium leguminosarum, Mycobacterium avium/intracellulare, and the common cold virus, Adenovirus. Fortunately, two things can penetrate Ascaris worms, whether dead or alive! They are ozonated olive oil and L-cysteine.

· A few varieties of tapeworms have larvae inside their larvae! And even these second generation larvae can have more larvae inside them. The innermost larvae are called hydatid sand. E. granulosis is the most common variety to survive herbs, Zapper current and even CoQ10. Streptomyces fungus is one of the things that is found inside the hydatid sand.Streptomyces weakens your thymus gland! It makes protease! It uses up your nucleic acid bases, adenine and hypoxanthine; it makes nitrites out of nitrates; it makes ammonia out of your urea; and it has powerful immune suppressant action on T-cells. Unless you kill every grain of the hydatid sand and other leftover shielded larvae, you cannot get well. At the same time, the cyst must not be opened to let out the harmful bacteria and viruses, but merely penetrated to kill the contents. Fortunately, ozonated olive oil and L-cysteine also can penetrate a succession of tapeworm larvae membranes to kill the larvae within, as well as any trapped eggs.

Directions for Making Ozonated Olive Oil
Purchase your "PortaZone" ozonator (gray plastic box, 13X7X5, with carrying handle) from The Road To Health, 1547 Palos Verdes, #314, Walnut Creek, CA 94596. Send check or MO for $205.95.

· Pour out an inch or so of olive oil from a newly purchased bottle of olive oil.

· Attach an aerator to the end of your ozonator hose and drop it to the bottom of the olive oil bottle. Use a ceramic or wood aerator, available at any pet store (they are used in aquariums), the plastic aerators release benzene!

· The bubbles may make the olive oil flow over the top. If this happens pour more olive oil out of the bottle.

· Turn the ozonator on before dropping the hose in the bottle.

· Ozonate for 20 minutes or longer.

· When done, cap the bottle and store in freezer until you are ready to use it. It melts quickly when needed. (For best results ozonate only 2 ounces of oil at a time.)


Prevent Disease by Equalizing
Your Intake of Acid (H+) and Alkaline (OH-) Substances
by Bonnie O'Sullivan

Does the water you drink and use for cooking test acid? Do you eat mostly grains, eggs, dairy, meats and sugar all acid forming foods? Do you ingest oil that has been hydrogenated (margarine, shortening, partially hydrogenated peanut butter) which causes the formation of trans- fatty acids1? Do you ingest oil that has been heated to a high temperature (French fries, potato chips, commercial salad oils) which also causes the formation of trans- fatty acids? (Trans- fatty acids test acid while natural, unheated and un-hydrogenated oils test neutral.)
Foods and liquids that are acid forming (yielding a large acid residue in metabolism) deplete our reserves of electrolytes which are the alkalizing minerals (having the power of neutralizing acids): sodium, potassium. calcium and magnesium.

Does Anything Else Cause Acid To Form In Our Body?
Stress/trauma, overeating, infections of bacteria, parasites, yeast, fungus, and other harmful microorganisms, metal toxicity (such as mercury in fillings in our teeth) and air pollution all cause acid to form in the body. Exercise increases acid in the body as well, but rapid, deep breathing reduces it. A high acid environment (in the body) causes a low-oxygen environment and a high oxygen environment causes a low-acid environment.

Our Blood Must Be Kept Slightly Alkaline
Normal human blood, according to the Merck Manual, has a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, a very narrow range and very slightly alkaline. Every metabolic function of the body depends upon maintaining the blood pH in this range. (A pH of 7.0 is neutral. Numbers higher than 7.0 are alkaline. Numbers below 7.0 are acid.) The maintenance of normal blood pH is second only to breathing! A blood pH of 6.95 results in coma and death. A blood pH of 7.7 causes convulsions and death. With acid blood, the heart relaxes and ceases to beat, and with too alkaline blood it contracts and ceases to beat.


Electrolytes Remove Acid From The Body At A Cost
When our food and/or drink is acid forming our blood pH drops. The good news is that when this happens, the buffer of sodium bicarbonate that is always in the blood binds with the acid, diluting it. If the acid keeps coming, the body can and does draw alkalizing minerals from every cell of every organ and/or bone in the body to keep the blood at the perfect 7.4 pH. The bad news is that in doing so the alkalizing minerals are lost (they go out with the acids in the urine and the feces). It is in this way that we gradually drain ourselves of these minerals. This causes radical metabolic imbalances:
· If the body removes sodium from the stomach, then the stomach can no longer create hydrochloric acid.
· If it removes sodium from the bile, then the bile turns acid and this causes the formation of mucoid plaque in the intestine and plays a part in every serious bowel disease (such as cancer, colitis, etc.).
· If the body takes potassium from the heart, then heart disease can develop.
· If it removes alkaline minerals from the liver, then hundreds of problems can occur.
· If it takes calcium from the bones, then osteoporosis and arthritis can occur, etc.

Water pH Is Extremely Important To Your Health
Most discussions of water quality ignore whether your drinking water is very acid, alkaline or neutral. This is a terrible mistake! You can test your water with pH litmus papers and a color chart. Order the pH litmus paper from Lab Safety Supply, 800-356-0783. Their catalog number TL-23890 Combination Dispenser gives you two rolls and color charts, one for acids 0.0 to 6.0 and the other for almost neutral to alkaline, 6.5 to 13.0. With these strips you can read your water's pH to within 0.5 pH almost as accurately as a water lab can record. When you get your pH paper you will find you will want to test all kinds of liquids you drink, and you will be shocked at how many of them are acid. Coffee, tea and virtually all soda drinks are extremely acid. I found tap water and all bottled water, including distilled, to have a pH of 5.5 (very acid). Continuing to drink water this acid would require several grams of absorbable calcium a day, more than provided by any mineral supplement on the market. Drinking water is supposed to be between 6.1 and 7.6 according to most health information available today.

Eating and Drinking and To Preserve Electrolytes
Alkaline forming foods include all fruits and vegetables, provided they are ripe. Exceptions are spinach, cranberries, plums, prunes, citrus and pineapple. All foods become acid when sugar is added. (Unheated, un-hydrogenated nut and seed oils have a neutral pH.)
Acid forming foods include grains, rice, oatmeal, corn meal, tofu, eggs, dairy products, butter, all animal products including birds, fish and sea foods, nuts, seeds, legumes, lentils, chickpeas, chocolate, alcohol, aspirin, honey, distilled vinegar, canned vegetables, canned, glazed or sulfured fruits, pepper, soft drinks, tea, coffee, beer, mustard, niacin, vitamin C (and spinach, cranberries, plums, prunes, citrus and pineapple).
Mineral water in glass bottles is the best water to drink provided it does not have contaminants in it (test with a syncrometer). At Wild Oats in Berkeley (510-549-1714) I found a great tasting mineral water from Germany called Gerolsteiner Sprudel. It has a pH of 6.8.

1 Trans- fatty acids are formed when nut and seed oils are either hydrogenated or heated to high temperatures. When ingested, hard and altered oils lower oxygen levels in the body which increases acid levels. Trans- fats cause animals to eat six times as much food as does natural fat in their feed but then they die of heart attacks before they reach maturity farmers learned in the 50s not to feed their livestock trans- fatty acids! However, mass marketing companies are still selling trans- fatty acids to uninformed people because heating and/or hydrogenating nut and seed oil extends its shelf-life.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) (essential nutrients are those that the body requires, cannot make from other substances and must therefore get from foods) as found in seeds of flax, hemp and evening primrose oil, increase metabolism/oxygen levels, enhance immune functions, and feed the brain. Liver and gall bladder problems have been healed by taking flax seed oil with a sulfur containing protein (2 ounces of low fat milk). Store flax seed oil in opaque containers, protected from light, oxygen, and heat.
Butter, and tropical fats coconut, palm, palm kernel, cocoa, and shea nut are safest for frying, because they contain only small quantities of EFAs. The saturated fatty acids contained in these oils are inert and therefore heat-stable. Heat does not destroy them in the same way as it destroys EFAs, which heat turns into poisonous breakdown products that interfere with EFA functions.
Do not use olive oil for cooking, it turns into a trans- fat if heated. For salads use olive oil from Italy. The Italian government passed a law that olive oil must be protected from heat and hydrogenation.

Tomato Warning

On December 7, 2013 I realized I may have been causing myself to have a painful, swollen right knee joint by drinking a daily cup or more of Hippocrates soup. After not drinking it (and not eating anything else made with tomatoes) for just one day my knee felt better and by the end of the week my knee was back to normal.

Tomatoes are in a group of vegetables called night shades. They include tomatoes, potatoes and peppers (but not black pepper). I have experimented by eating potatoes (they are also in Hippocrates soup) and have had no return of the knee pain, however, I ate an enchilada on December 19th and the pain returned immediately. By the next day my knee was feeling better and the next day it felt normal again. Even though I love tomatoes, I will not eat them again.

Here's a good write-up about night shade vegetables:
