top 10We’re still compiling the list of our readers’ favorites. If you haven’t already sent us your Top Ten, there’s still time to do so!
A few weeks ago we noted that the Mayo Clinic had listed its “Top Ten Alternative Therapies,” which we found a little weak on nutritional therapy and science-based studies. We shared our very different list, and ask you what your favorite therapies are.
We’re still compiling the list and want to publish it soon. So please tell us which complementary and alternative medicine modalities are most important to you and your family. Give us your choices in the Comments section below.
We’ll tally the results and publish them in a few weeks. No need to stick to ten—just give us your list of favorites, no matter how long or short.

    This therapy is not integrated. It stands alone to replace the medical paradigm as how to eliminate all diseases. The Natural Healing Paradigm by Dr. Kenneth R. Sutter 11, DC if applied will eliminate all diseases and bring a person back to complete health. It works for everyone. I came back from “terminal” cancer and diabetes. I can testify that it works.

  4. First, Get my clients on Vitamin “D” rehabilitative therapy; then add in an Alkaline Diet, and demand THAT THEY TURN OFF THE TV, COMPUTER, AND VIDEO GAMES.
    Only after that do I take a complete nutritional history, including medications, and start helping their bodies to HEAL!
    I am not a doctor; I am a well-Decorated Combat Medic of the Viet Nam Era, and I do not take B.S. from people who want to be cured but don’t want to heal; I’m sure you know the difference.
    Merry Christmas!!

  13. PJ Thompson says:

    For over 30 years now, I’ve been “helping” people with cancer of every type and AIDS utilizing the proper administration of oral Essiac tea, and out of the over 35 “clients” I’ve “informed” of this helping hand, within one year total, all but two, were able to live free of this disease and still do to this day by changing their daily habits which brought on the problem to begin with. As Dr. Charles Brusch, John F. Kennedy’s doctor declared to the FDA regarding this fabulous discovery, “I find Essiac tea to be a 98% “cure” for any cancer of the body.” In 35 yrs, I’ll have to render my vote to be in full agreement with this assessment.

  17. John Nicol says:

    Two summers ago, I started to put Black Salve on what I had diagnosed as melanoma on my left forearm and forehead. I ordered it from a supplier in Guayaquil, Ecuador, who is no longer there. I say that I had diagnosed it, for I had no money to pay for a dermatologist, and good photographs of its different forms were available to me on the internet.
    The Black Salve is very selective, affecting only cancerous tissue and leaving the healthy tissue alone. I put it on some moles about which I had doubts but which were not cancer, and the Black Salve did nothing to them. As for the melanoma, there is no sign that the cancer was ever there.
    Without Black Salve, what would have been my alternative? Melanoma is known to be a fast and nasty death, as cancers go. I am alive today because of Black Salve.

  18. I find the above website interesting, but I have been under the care of alternative medicine for over 32 years. I had received intensive intravenous vitamin C and supplements from a Dr. Corsella until my immune system became stabilized. I could not tolerate antibiotics and regularly had harsh side effects. After this regime was completed, I was on my own for a while since this doctor was forced to shut down her office. For the last several years, I have been under the care of a homeopathic physician which has worked very well for me. I am now 81 years of age and am often confused by others to be in my early 70’s. I have always watched my diet and found that a low intake of sugar and artificial additives worked best.

  20. Celeste Yarnall, PhD says:

    My favorite therapy is a powerful omega 3 anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutraceutical
    called Moxxor. It is a new category of Omega 3 as it is cold pressed and organic and comes from the pristine waters of the New Zealand Marlborough sounds region. It also contains super antioxidants from Sauvignon blanc grape seed husk extract and kiwifruit seed oil. I use this product successfully personally and in my anti-aging protocols for both people and pets. This along with probiotics and a traditional foods type diet, (www.westonaprice.org) which includes raw meats and bones for pets,(www.celestialpets.com) and raw milk and dairy for people along with free range and pasture raised meats, dairy products, wild caught fish and free range/organic poultry,organic, nuts, fruits and veggies and pure spring water from Figi!
    I also use and recommend The Wiley Protocol for bio-identical hormones, for men and women. http://www.thewileyprotocol.com
    And I also use and recommend a device called Active Air by http://www.eng3corp.com
    For superior skin care, I use Electric Body http://www.electricbody.com
    I use and recommend Far Infra Red sauna’s and FIR pet beds.
    I strongly advocate organic farming and local markets in order to eat that which is locally grown in the season in which it is grown!
    Thank you for asking!
    Live, love and light the way!

    After 30 years of suffering with Fibromyalgia and Vertigo along with all the side effects the medications I was prescribed I found some nutritional supplements without side effects that control both issues. Dr. Wayne Garland’s formulas along with a balanced minerals complex has kept me well since 1995. Life Transfusion Ionic Liquid Minerals, Structural Lubrication formula of a multitude of antiinflammatory herbs and Skeletal Support another formula with a multitude of skeletal supporting herbs and a host of herbs and nutrients in Mind Power that took away the vertigo and keeps my world steady and no longer moving.

  30. Peggy G. says:

    1. Nutrition – it is astounding how many people, including physicians, don’t link nutrition to health/disease, let alone disease treatment.
    2. Nutrition support with quality supplements – I don’t buy supplements in the grocery store; instead, I work with an integrative doc and acupuncturist to get quality products.
    3. Specifically, vitamin D – I thought I was developing fibromyalgia after a complete hysterectomy; my integrative doc found my D levels were low, and supplementation has made me feel younger and more pain free than I was before the surgery.
    4. Bioidentical hormone replacement – it has taken some time and tweaking to find the right doses, but it truly works.
    5. Mind-body connection therapies – I’m just beginning to explore this topic; the field of epigentics is fascinating, and I hope it flourishes.

Instead, I received FELDENKRAIS METHOD work and regained even better mobility than I”d had as a young person. FELDENKRAIS is effective with everything from stroke paralysis, to brain damage to normal injuries.

  37. Dawn Kosec says:

    I don’t know if everyone will think this is integrative medicine — but it is not popular and considered strange by so many — going vegan! A vegetarian diet has always served me well and I generally (knock on wood!) never get sick! When I decided to try to make the transition from vegetarian to vegan, I dropped 20 pounds without even trying!!
    When I went to the gynecologist for a regular checkup, they gave me a long questionnaire, every question imaginable — but not one question on nutrition! Why don’t physicians ask their patients about what they eat or if they are by chance vegetarian??
    I think that staying away from GMO foods is also a big plus for one’s health — but physicians never talk about that either!

  41. Lucy Mauterer says:

    My family and I visit a naturepathic doctor who uses BioEnergeticAssesment to assist in locating areas in the body which are either inflamed or degenerating. This program, using an Avatar machine, can assess the energetic signatures of literally hundreds of items, such as specific bacteria, viruses, fungi, heavy metals, emotional stress and the like. It has been an incredibly accurate tool for pinpointing areas where problems are gestating before the presentation of obvious symptoms. Also has been very helpful to identify areas that are under stress in the presence of symptoms. The program suggests specific remedies useful for supporting the body as it works to heal itself. Can also be used in conjunction with Western Medical treatments, but not many M.D.s are familiar with its use.

  42. Julie Falco says:

    I’ve lived with multiple sclerosis for over 20 years. Pharmaceuticals did more harm then being helpful. Prior to 2004, I was contemplating suicide. Then I started eating cannabinoid brownies 3x a day, every day in a 1″ cube size piece. Those little bits saved my life. I stopped having suicidal thoughts and by 2007 was off of all intense pharma medicine. I always tried alternatives though once on cannabinoids I completely stopped the pharma tinkering. I feel better than I ever did, and found that cannabinoids are neuroprotective and anti–inflammatory. And that we have an endo-cannabinoid system that regulates and modulates all other systems of the body! Myself and some colleagues are writing a book, “The Cannabis Papers, a Citizens guide to Cannabinoids.” Essays are free to read online cause the info is so important. You can check it out at http://www.illinoisnorml.org and click on the Cannabis Papers link. No email registration needed… just
    read. Now, here’s my latest top 10!

    1 – Supplementing the silver sols from American Biotech Labs (visit my website) 10 years without infection.
    2 – Maintaining correct upper cervical alignment. I use only NUCCA certified chiropractors for this. You don’t want just anyone messing with your upper cervical.
    3 – Detox – heavy metals and food additives.
    4 – Remove all amalgam fillings.
    5 – Eliminate all dairy/gluten/soy from the diet. Difficult but do-able.
    6 -Meditation and proper breathing. This one is free and has worked wonders for me : http://eiriu-eolas.org/
    7 – Eat local organic foods whenever possible
    8 – Supplement vitamins, minerals, probiotics and digestive enzymes
    9 – Stop drinking fluoridated water and eating the processed foods made from/with municipal water supplies. Real mountain spring water for all cooking and drinking. Make certain that the source is authentic. Lots of bogus bottled water companies marketing spring water that isn’t.
    10 – DO NOT GET VACCINATED and Fire your quack… you won’t be needing him if you do the above.

  44. Uliana says:

  45. John Edmondson says:

    Vitamins E, C (4-5 grams a day), B complex, CoQ10, D, a multitude if other supplements, minerals and food extracts. Plus, l-Arginine and various recommended amino acids. In addition, chiropractic and massage are regular therapies for me and my wife. We are both 78 years old and in excellent health. We also have a complete blood work-up every year, but neither of us has a regular doctor. That may be the most important thing we DON’T do – see an M.D. for a “check-up.”.

  48. Caren Crocker says:

    The superior health products are from Standard Process, Palmyra, WI. These products are truly therapeutic foods. They have healed each “malady” I have needed to cure, and have successfully eliminated my need for drugs and family need for drugs as well. Specific maladies healed are: hypothyroidism with antibodies; arrhythmia; prostate high readings reduced and declining for the first time in 20 years; flu/cold. I am sure they are removing the risk for atherosclerosis, a family mal-health tendency. The source of the information for healing from these therapeutic foods is http://www.healthalert.com. There, one can subscribe to the newsletter written by Dr. Bruce West. A 2-year subscriptions yields not only the excellent monthly publications with articles that include reasons for disease, scientific studies supporting non-allopathic cures, and protocols using the therapeutic food supplements from Standard process (product list and daily quantity required to heal), but also the two-year subscriber receives a copy of Dr. West’s Encyclopedia for Pragmatic Medicine. The encyclopedia alone is worth more than the $77 in true, healing, remarkable remedies and descriptions in great detail. These remedies not only save one from becoming a pharmaceutical drug invalid, but can help one wean from the toxic drugs safely as one truly heals one’s body with these supplements; and literally save lives from doctors and hospital conventional medical protocols. I’ve seen it first hand…. especially with heart patients. It is not possible to say enough positive things about the work that Dr. West does and the importance of his writings for anyone who is fortunate enough to learn about them, read them, and apply the lessons he presents… using his protocols for Standard Process therapeutic foods. This is truly the gold standard for healing.

    6. Organic foods
    7. Whole food supplements for macular etc
    8. Health newsletters from a variety of Integrative Doctors

    1. HOMEOPATHY!!!!

    The above is my winning combination.
    Other protocols that I have some respect for:
    4. classical Osteopathy which uses energy movement
    5. physical therapy
    6. hands on healing
    I have not been impressed with acupuncture as practiced in the USA
    and Chiropractic has shown itself to work paliatively but not had any curative ability on my back issues.
    7. Tai chi and Chi Gung are terrific healing modalites while also providing safe physical exercise.

    i think one of the best approaches would be a preventive medecine. patience have to accept the faact that doctor is not the god and time has the power to hill.
    the other important thing is an education. the doctor could be more like a teacher explaining how a patient can avoid or prevent certain illnesses. for example, a doctor could show how to do a breast manual exam so the breastfeeding mom could do it to herself. i would pay a lot to the doctor with educational approach. it rather anoying when doctor is ALWAYS trying to prescribe anything rather than giving a practical advice.

      I believe cancer and other degenerative diseases are the result of exposure to highly toxic materials and chemicals used in agriculture, dental materials, home anc bulidling materials, body care products, water treatment, and emissions from industrial plants that go into the air that we breathe. For a person to heal they would need to eat a diet that strengthens and detoxifies the body, drink purified water and air, and have all toxic dental materials removed from their mouth including extraction of root canals (or dead teeth). Putting money into research is a waste of time, since the cure for cancer has been found in demonstrated by the macrobiotic, Clark, and Huggins protocols. The medical and dental associations will never find a cure because theya re funded by the drug and insurance industries that are profit motivated and seek only to promote drugs and surgery.
      To cure all diseases we would need to clean up the world and all the corrupt government agencies.

    For those of us whose endocrine systems have been torn up by celiac disease, the top therapy that gets us well (besides getting rid of gluten) is the combination of T3+T4 or desiccated thyroid hormone, accompanied by DHEA and hydrocortisone therapy to correct adrenal fatigue (insufficiency) and/or arrhythmia. This actually is an “alternative” therapy because most MDs won’t treat thyroid with anything but synthetic T4, and virtually no MD will have anything to do with treating adrenal problems. (Good adrenal function is required for thyroid treatment to be successful; they are interconnected.)

    My children’s food and airborne allergies are being treated with NAET – my son can already eat eggs, drink milk – and will soon be able to eat peanuts if he wants to. He was severaly allergic to all three. Hopefully no more need to carry epipens and take albuterol/steroids. My daughter is no longer allergic to her cat, and will soon be free of her allergies to EVERYTHING that grows outside, and to mold, etc. No allergy shots for us, thank you.
    The chiropractor has relieved and I think cured my son’s ‘asthma’, or what we were told was asthma, by using an adjustment to his diaphram – he hasn’t used his inhaler for over a month when he had to use it 2-3 times a day. No more activity induces asthma attacks.
    Taking probiotics and extra D3 hasn’t made us bullet proof, but over time we hope it will help protect us more.
    My next project is to find a doctor or alternative medicine practitioner for my children who won’t lay guilt trips on me for stopping all vaccines and for not medicating with antibiotics and tylenol!

    Thank you for contacting me about food safety legislation. I understand your concerns.
    I am deeply troubled by a food safety system that has failed to protect too many Americans. I am concerned about unsafe imports, a lack of accountability, and the need for better oversight. That is why I voted for the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. This bill will allow the Food and Drug Administration to recall contaminated food for the first time and allow inspectors to trace back contamination to the source. It will also make sure that imported food is held to the same standards as food made in America.
    Agriculture is Michigan’s second largest industry, and that is due, in large part, to the strength of our family farms. As the incoming Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, I want to protect our farmers from unnecessary or unfair requirements, which is why I introduced the Growing Safe Food Act (S.2758). My legislation will provide grants for training, education, and technical assistance for farmers, processors, and wholesalers to meet new safety standards. I am pleased that this provision was included in the final food safety law.
    Please know that I will continue to fight for the needs of Michigan’s farmers and communities.
    Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

  69. Johann says:

    I have ulcerative colitis, and have been prescribed sulfasalazine and Asacol at different times. I found both of them very short of a solution. My problems continued unabated. Then I talked to a friend from England, and he said that doctors there hand out little packets of powder to put under your tongue to be absorbed sublingually. The powder is balanced electrolytes. I tried taking calcium tablets with magnesium and other electrolytes, and they do work. Because they have to go through a digestive system that’s currently not continent, though, it takes them longer to work, but they DO work, and MUCH better than the prescription drugs that were costing $400 per month!
    Thirty years ago, I acquired “Harley knee” from kickstarting my motorcycle. Now I’m 67, and have also gotten some other joint pains. I’ve asked several doctors, and basically got back “That’s a shame.” I tried glucosamine, and got some relief, but now I take MSM and get almost total relief. Unless I forget to take it, I can walk with no joint pain unless I drastically overdo it.
    I have osteopenia, and over the years have been suffering from more and more bone pain. Some of that may have the Paget’s disease of the bone as a contributing factor. My doctor recommended that I start taking a LARGE dose of vitamin D, and it was as if someone waved a magic wand over me and just got rid of the pain!
    I heartily recommend all three of these treatments!

  70. ana chulian says:

    Chiropractic. For 10 years I saw an MD for sciatica and pain in the shoulder and arm, Ten years of NSAIDs and Xrays which revealed nothing significant and did not improve my condition. I self referred to a Chiro clinic and after about 25 visits (less than 1 year)I was fixed. And it has been 8 years since that session with the Chiropractor.
    Now THAT is success.

  80. Janice Smith says:

    My favorite therapy is greenpasture.org’s Skate liver oil. One of my patients took it for 8-9 months and documented on cardiac cath that his coronary artery disease had totally disappeared. He had changed nothing else during the previous year other than adding the skate liver oil to his supplement program. Notably, he started the year with a second M.I. requiring the placement of multiple stents. I have asked many of my remaining patients to give it a try; most are eager to do so.

    Connection to a higher power to understand we are not these finite bodies, we are so much greater than that
    Being politically free to have access to one’s own choice of healing modalities
    IV Chelation therapy – if you are burdened with heavy metals, you cannot improve your health adequately without removing heavy metals first!

    Not necessarialy in the above order; but I have used all of the above in my natural healing of Breast Cancer (1992) without chemotherapy or radiation. I did have to eventualy have a lumpechtomy because I disobeyed my “Macrobiotic” counselor’s advice and ate a salad at a local restaurant. There, I received an unwanted condiment: Hepatitis-A, which caused my tumor to regrow. It took me 18 months to recover from the virus and the surgery. Today, thanks to my Osteopathic PCP, I have 18 years of wholistic healing from both diseases, cancer and hepatitis-A, and at age 80 feel better than I did at 30- 40-50- or 60. I am grateful. Please keep up your good work to save our freedoms to practice the type of health therapies in which we believe. thank you. Marge Lyles

  93. Omega-3 fish oil EPA/DHA to reduce incidence of my atrial fibrillation. This requires 3,000 mg net EPA and DHA. It seems that products that are higher in DHA work better. I used to have 10 – 15 events per year that could last from an hour to a day. Now I might have two and they are weak and resolve quickly. For over twenty years I tried many nutritional supplements that had little effect. EPA/DHA has several published studies showing this effect. I encourage reading about them at: http://www.michaelmooney.net/mt9.html

    Interestingly, a Bowen Method practitioner I had the pleasure of having a session with yesterday told me that he knew of a medical doctor who worked at Kaiser who used Bowen.

No question, the very best of the bunch is the new advanced form of the essential mineral magnesium (Mg) known as: POTENTIATED MAGNESIUM (pMg), which has demonstrated in human research studies (not just in lab animals or test tubes) and in its worldwide patents (U.S., Canada, Japan, China, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom) to reduce the physical presence of CALCIFIED arterial plaque buildup – thus reducing the well-known precursor to heart attack and stroke. pMg has also demonstrated other profound health benefits, such as chronic asthma control and supports normal respiratory function, helps normalize blood pressure, prevents endothelial cell damage and inflammation, supports normal glucose uptake and insulin secretion, and helps prevent cellular damage and demise thus extending the human health span.

  112. Ivy Mc Queen says:

    As far as alternative therapies: I HAD cancer, learned alot & it is TOTALLY gone so alot of my therapies have to do with this subject. Essiac, black walnut tincture along with cloves & woodworm, accupuncture along with herbal tea from my Chinese Dr, modified citrus pectin
    & more. Very important was a lifestyle change. A balanced diet from organic foods, no sugar,no dairy products, no pesticides nor hormones. Along the way I added several supplements to aid in the process. Selenium, vitamin D3 which I already had been taking but uped the dosage, pancreatic enzymes +more. Chlorella, iodine, beta-carotene plus liquid B complex took care of
    hashimotos desease so I no longer take synthroid. Krill oil, lutein, zeaxanthin & Bilberry improved my vision with results noticeable within 1 week. If suffering with hay fever or allergies, bee
    pollen will clear your eyes & head immediately If you continue to take it, you won’t have the problem in the first place. Alfalfa does the same.

    • Elizabeth Kim says:

      Hi Ivy,
      Your writing really interested me as I have vision problems. Can you tell me how you took (how much, how often, etc.) the krill oil, etc., that improved your eyesight? I also have cataracts for which I’m planning to buy some stuff off the internet that will dissolve them. I’m big into Naturopathy, especially herbs and homeopathic cell salts, which I swear by.
      Thanks loads,
      Elizabeth

      • Bruce says:

        I used the N-Acetyl Carnosine eyedrops developed by the Russian Mark Babizhayev. They didn’t appear to change anything for me. They are flown in from out of country, and apparently not approved in the US. I asked my Optometrist who said he couldn’t comment on the subject. (Which might mean that the drops do work and the AMA doesn’t want them approved.) Don’t know. But I used 8 bottles and didn’t order more.

    • Ashley says:

      Your comment regarding Hashiomotos disease was particularly interesting. Could you post the amounts of Chlorella, iodine, beta-carotene plus liquid B complex that were used and how long it required before you were able to discontinue taking synthroid. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Vanadyl sulfate for sleep apnea. 10 mgs at night before bed ought to put the fire out. For people with sleep apnea, carbonated cola drinks may exacerbate symptoms. Phosphoric acid in colas seems to aggravate apnea in susceptible people. High levels of vitamin D may also raise phosphorus levels and cause apnea type reactions. I have taken vanadyl sulfate for 10 years. No uncomfortable CPAP machine for me. Snoring and apnea symptoms are controlled with vanadyl sulfate.

  125. Mike James says:

    My top therapies are:
    1.Nasaleze which restores/maintaines the largely unknown air filtration system built into ones nasal tract. With clean germ free air being inspired into the lungs there is then nothing to cause allergic reactions such as Asthma,Hay Fever etc and there is then far less likelyhood of catching other peoples germs.There are no known side effects.
    2. A safe and most effective replacement for antibiotics. A specific extract from garlic which inhibits bacteria from becomiing virulant. Allicin, when applied in several ways, gives time for ones own immune system to kill off all known bacteria. Even the so called super bugs do not stand a chance of doing any harm. There are no known side effects.

  126. Joan Hathaway-Sheldon says:

    EFT – definitely my favorite, it works for so many problems: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. Incredible for pain and getting to the “root” or “core” of a condition. There are a couple of specialties within the EFT community that are also wonderful: Matrix Reimprinting and “Ask and Receive”
    Flower Essences – I raised my children with these and they were two of the healthiest kids around
    Microbial Balancing – a fabulous alternative to anti-biotics
    Theta Healing – I’ve had some extraordinary results with Theta.
    Sedona Method – once you start “releasing” there’s no need to manifest dis-ease
    Nutrition – getting rid of sugar and sugar producing starches has helped me on all levels and I feel more vibrant and alive
    Aromatherapy oils – these are my go-to for wounds and topical applications. Properly used they are wonderful and you smell good too.
    Cleansing – I use Dr. Schultz products for week long cleansing of bowels, kidneys and liver Keeping the processing and elimination systems cleared out on a regular basis has made my body feel so much better – clean from the inside out.
    Massage – good for what ails you!
    Reiki – 20 minutes of Reiki will smooth out stress and tension as well as balancing the body energetically

    There is only one hope for our health freedoms and choices. Get rid of the FDA.
    I repeat 10 times Get rid of the FDA. That is the only answer. They are a rogue bunch of
    thugs, out of control, and criminal in their actions. They have become over the years Gestapo
    like in going into companies and ruining their businesses and often later the courts find the businesses did nothing wrong.
    So lets see, they go in like Nazi’s and destroy everything in their path, and later it is discovered that the person, or company is found innocent, but a oh well too bad I ruined your life and there is nothing you can do about it attitude by these rogue thugs calling themselves the FDA.
    Yes the only answer is to get rid of the FDA entirely. And for that matter the EPA, Dept of Education, State Dept and most of these thugs who are totally criminal in forcing insane laws
    on all of us.
    These Senators and Congressmen who voted for this “Fake” Food Safety Bill should be tried for high crimes and treason against the citizens of the U.S.
    I would love to be on that jury. Verdict Guilty, Sentence Death by a firing squad. The worthless swine!!

    • Only Organics says:

      Switching to organic food has helped with menopausal symptoms and GERD and probably helped my immune system since I am rarely sick or have need of a doctor. I cannot say enough good about eating organic, along with calcium citrate, vitamin D, magnesium, C, and B12

  132. Marie Lewis says:

    When I was newly diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I found a Chiropractor who is trained in NAET (www.naet.com). He used this energy technique, while he had me eat according to the Blood Type Diet. Within 3 months, my blood work was normal……no rheumatoid arthritis! That was about 12 years ago…..I think NAET is awesome!

    4. Change of diet is important also
    5. acupuncture and I still do it about once a month.
    6. Chiropractic help as needed about 12 times a year.

    8. I take 10,000 units of D3 daily. No colds in 5 years.
    9. Try to walk 2 miles about 3-4 times a week at 3 dmiles per hour rate.
    10. I lost 40 pounds in 4 months and had no hunger problems

  142. Erika Alvarez says:

    I have used Dr. Hulda Clark Protocol to get rid of my gallblader stones, I have droped about 600 of them in a couple of cleansings, I don’t have cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, or any disease but, her findings and treatment are focused in eliminating the cause of this horrible diseases. The treatment is done at home, is not complicated and not expensive, herbs can be purchased online, in two different websites, tools for healing is one of them.
    The other therapy I know is The Gerson Therapy which is based mostly in the same principles that Dr. Clark talks in her books. The Gerson Institute has a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, thanks to to FDA that forbides their operation in this FREE country. In their website there are testimonials from some cancer survivors, like pancreatic cancer, which is unheard of, using traditional medicine.
    Another good one is Quantum Touch, healing through energy.
    I hope one of our diying movie stars can discover any of these therapies and survive, to get the attention of the media and the public. In the meantime, we like little ants, work hard to get the word out there. Thak you for reading.

  143. 1. Nutrition Response Testing is energy medicine, finding weak organs and supplements that strengthen them. One supplement does not work for everybody so testing is the best way to find what works for you.
    2. Hormone testing, then using nutrition, herbs, homeopathy to balance, and if needed, hormone therapy using bio-identical hormones.
    3. Cleansing programs that touch all the body systems.
    4. Nutrition as presented by the Weston A. Price Foundation, going back to traditional foods, God and nature made.
    5. Being patient and taking your time to get well. It took years to get sick, give it time to get well.
    6. Emotional healing through various modes, such as yoga, flower essences, and movement as described in the book, “The Fourfold Path to Healing” by Dr. Thomas S. Cowan MD.
    7.All whole food supplements (especially if you are not seeing a practitioner) instead of fractionated supplements from food, and definitely not synthetic supplements.
    8. Practice forgiveness, think happy thoughts, pray for those who hurt you, and always give thanks.
    9. Using homeopathy in place of flu shots, both for prevention and for therapy. Influenzinum 30 and Oscillococcinum are my favorite. Also, keep Congaplex from Standard Process on hand at all times in case of illness.
    10. Castor Oil packs for detoxing specific organ systems.

  144. Linda Hosay says:

    homeopathy, flower essences, fermented foods, RAW MILK, farm fresh organically grown food

  145. Sherry Moore says:

    1. Lugol’s Iodine fulfillment therapy – for heavy metal detoxing, low thyroid treatment that doctors used to do before synthetic hormones were invented, killing pathogens, stopping free radical activity, detoxing synthetic molecules or xenoestrogens. Look at Japan’s health stats, they are the best in the world because of high 13mg average iodine intake daily from seaweed. Iodine was removed from bread supplementation in the 60s and 70s causing our health epidemic.
    2. Intestinal yeast cleansing – causes protein deficiency, one of the main causes of all symptoms and diseases. Yeast overgrowth affects 30 to 80 percent of the population depending on what kind of health practitioner you ask. Spurred on by high fructose corn syrup.
    3. Leaky gut healing – causes inflammation from foreign bodies leaking out of intestines. Otherwise known as auto-immune disorder. Inflammation is the other main cause of all symptoms and diseases. If you have yeast overgrowth you have leaky gut.
    4. Coconut oil – daily amounts of 1-3 tablespoons kill pathogens and provide the body with medium-chain omega 3 fatty acids. Coconut oil aids the thyroid with metabolism.
    5. A healthy low glycemic diet – no simple carbs, plenty of white meat. Eat enough health food to build plenty of proteins and enzymes, don’t count calories.
    6. Exercise – weight training and interval cardio for weight loss and control.
    7. Daily nutritional supplements – even with a healthy diet, we still need supplements: multi vitamin/mineral, D-3 (5,000 +- daily), fish oil, vitamin C and vitamin E.
    8. Deep breathing several times a day – builds proteins since oxygen is an ingredient in proteins, detoxes the lungs.
    9. EFT – tapping for emotional freedom.
    10. Prayer – first be thankful for what you have, then ask for what you want.

  146. Karen Bump says:

    Not in any particular order:
    1) Acupuncture — GREAT results for soft tissue injuries
    2) Massage
    3) Chiropractic
    4) Whole foods and grass fed, free-range meats
    5) Echinacea for cold / flu prevention — warding it off
    6) Eniva’s VIBE — liquid full spectrum vitamin / mineral supplement — has helped me sleep better, evened out my energy
    7) Psyllium for those times when digestion gets out of whack
    8) Rhodiola — using a great tea with this to help my mood
    9) Sun and fresh air
    10) Swimming!

  147. Dr Nydia L Welles says:

    1. Home made foods (bread included) made out of fresh ingredients, olive and grapeseed oils, whole grains, fresh vegies, etc.
    2. Nutrients (vitamins. minerals, herbs) Paw D’Arc, Epicor for the inmune system. Avoid allopatic medicines, mushroom compounds are my “penicillin”, Feverfew will take care of any slight headache (I seldom have them), also White Willow will replace aspirin. I take Armour thyroid. Dr Whitaker and Vitamin Research products have provided a lot of guidance for the needs of my family.
    3. To test for food sensitivity, iodine, vitamin D (many allopatic physicians are now testing Vitamin D routinely).
    4. Homeopathic help. I underwent three cancer surgeries and as soon as I was able to talk I requested the removal of pain medicine from my IV. I successfully used homeopathic medicine following the doses recommended by my homeopathic physician.
    5. Osteopathic medicine for body pain, balance. All seniors should have access to this type of care, some good chiropractors can do some of this work.
    6. Tai Chi and Chi Gong exercises and principles. Learn accupressure, learn breathing exercises, learn to relax and relieve tension.
    7. Spiritual development. Eliminate sources of stress, confront fears. Eliminate TV if harmful, create an environment of balance and peace. Do not feed from the stress of others, develop confidence, compassion, understanding, be helpful to others, but get out of harm way, learn how to protect your emotions and spiritual wellbeing.
    8. To keep up learning about our bodies, how they function and what we can do to keep in the track of prevention such as to learn about new developments in integrative medicine.
    9 To welcome the offerings of chinese and ayurvedic medicine. For example Triphala (a group of three herbs) from the ayurvedic medicine helps to regulate intestinal function and they will work
    wonders when paired to some probiotic to add beneficial bacteria to the intestinal walls.
    10 Work to keep our freedom to choose our own medical treatments. We are now invaded by adds that make us believe that we are in control, in reality they just brainwash us with the names of medicines for us to “tell our Drs” to prescribe them. Stand firm about treating symptoms, we need to treat the root of sickness and exercise more preventative medicine. Allopatic medicine can give some short term answers, but if our condition is chronic we need to look somewhere else.
