Good health is not a prerequisite for Renaissance Personhood; however, seeking to bring harmony to mind and body, and to find harmonious ways to maintain or restore health, is.

This page offers links to information which is alternative to that of the medical Establishment. It also contains essays I have written on various topics, drawn in part from my own personal experience. It consists of my opinions. I am a person who has used natural healing alternatives for three decades.

Multi-level Marketing Important: many businesses that sell supplements and other things to help with our health are business scams! Not to mention the fact that the products are usually overpriced and of inferior quality anyway. What's the point of restoring health if you destroy a person financially???

Natural News Excellent health information. But some of his political views are pretty whacked out. And he does multi-level marketing. MLM is giving natural medicine a VERY bad name!

Beware of Additives in Supplements
Additive-free Supplements - Why We Use No Additives

Coming soon: an article about my PERSONAL experience with magnesium stearate. Do you think your symptoms are due to aging? Not necessarily! If you find you are being harmed, raise a stink! The supplements people think magnesium stearate is safe! IT MOST EMPHATICALLY IS NOT, and it's a pain in the neck to find supplements free of it, and if you have to take a pharmaceutical drug, you might as well forget about trying to find one that's free of it. I have put hundreds of hours into research on this, and all I was trying to do is locate an antibiotic I can take. Wow! You wouldn't BELIEVE how impossible that is. Look for eyes drying out at night (maybe implication in cataracts?), dry skin, and impaired circulation. And while we are on the subject, check out the obnoxious, dangerous substances and manufacturing processes used to make VCaps for the vegetarians! I have to empty most of my capsules and take the contents in liquid to avoid this. Links provided when I have time.

The Amazing, True Cost of Smoking Ignore the advice to use the Emotional Freedom Technique. It may be a religious practice with serious spiritual consequences.

Please note: I violently disagree with Dr. Mercola on whether people should be encouraged to stop smoking. I think he's all wet! But he does have some good information. Ignore the advice to use the Emotional Freedom Technique. It may be a religious practice with serious spiritual consequences. There are natural remedies for stress.


Please note: I do not endorse the religious views on most of these web sites. If the religious views expressed on those web sites are not in substantial agreement with the religious views presented on this web site, please do not pay any attention to them! And please note: some natural healing modalities contain hidden religious implications. I will talk more about that in the future.

Please be aware that I knew a family where the daughter received polio vaccination. Shortly thereafter, her father caught polio and died. They attributed his death to the fact his daughter had been immunized with live polio vaccine.
