Chapter 1: Introduction


Prepare to be healed — because I believe that's what can happen.


I've never seen anything like this.


I've never seen specific information on curing terminal diseases.


I've heard theory. I've heard about prevention. But I've never known how to get natural cures for these conditions. But now I do, I you will too. The answers are here.


The answers in this SAVE YOUR LIFE Herbal Video Collection and User Manual come from two great healers: the late Dr. John R. Christopher and his leading student. Dr. Richard Schulze.


These two men learned what they learned in clinics. They learned on real people. They learned it by curing the sick — not by talking about them, or by reading about them. They weren't scholars, and they weren’t trying to be. They were healers. What's wrong with that?


If you are looking for medical references, you've come to the wrong building. But if you want to know how to cure what is incurable, you will find it nowhere else but here.


This User Manual supplements the videotapes. There is plenty of formation on the videotapes that is not in the Manual, and there is plenty in the Manual that is not on the videotapes. Neither one stands alone. The two are designed to work together to give you an education, until now, no layman has ever received.


Read the entire manual and see all the tapes. Do not focus in only on your specific condition. That's because information that applies all illnesses is tucked away inside different chapters and in different histories on other conditions. If you go into this looking for one herb or one single cure, you are still a victim of medical thinking.


This SAVE YOUR LIFE Collection presents programs, and they are to be used as full programs. Do not pick and choose and decide which s will cure you. The pieces of this total incurables program were assembled because Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze found that ALL the “parts” were necessary together to cure the incurable.


Why the information in this Collection is unknown.


No one is curing the incurable patients — because they don't know how. That's why you won't find the information in the Collection elsewhere.


Everyone is afraid to get into it. They are scared of government and afraid of the medical review boards. But that's not all: today's healers are uncomfortable with terminal cases. The possibility of the death of their patients frightens them. They would rather take patients who are pretty much healthy and tune them up.


In addition, we now have a generation of natural healers who don't think you can cure the incurables.


These herbal “experts” talk big about holistic healing — but it's just talk. Deep inside, they themselves DON'T REALLY BELIEVE that herbalism and natural healing can cure the incurable. Even if they did believe it, they have no idea how to do it.


Today's natural healers use the phrase “complementary” medicine. They see natural healing working to supplement today's medical techniques.


Let me be as blunt as I can be: The techniques in this SAVE YOUR LIFE Collection are not a supplement to modern medicine. They are a replacement. In many cases, it is much harder to heal patients naturally because of the damage already done by medical practices.


A lot of the suffering of patients is caused not by their diseases, but by the stupid and barbaric treatments of the stainless-steel world of medicine. You decide which way you are going to go: medical or natural. Riding the middle ground may leave you without the dedication to pursue either approach wholeheartedly as you need to.


This collection is an answer to my dreams for you.


Ever since I entered natural healing over 20 years ago, I have been looking for cures for incurable and terminal conditions. Regular diseases just bore me. Others can handle them. I only want to find information to cure the people who will die, or suffer for a lifetime, without my help.


I knew a man in New Jersey who had a beautiful wife he loved but she got cancer and he didn't know what to do. By the time he learned the methods that could have cured her, she was gone.


I don't want you to ever have to be in this position. When someone's time is running out, I don't want you to have to waste time on natural methods that can't save you — or with natural practitioners that have any experience or track record in curing the incurable.


I don't want you to have to live with regrets.


For me, finding Dr. John Christopher, and his leading student Dr. Schulze, was an answer to my prayers, and it will be an answer to yours too.


You can cure what others believe to be hopeless and incurable diseases, but you CAN'T do it with the weak products and inadequate methods of today's natural healers. You're going to need the knowledge you will find in this Collection — and nowhere else I know of.


We taped the first five of these videos in September of 1994, outside my home on top of Afton Mountain in the Blue Ridge. The other tapes were filmed in February of 1995, and in October of 1995.


While the first tapes were being edited, Richard Schulze had to leave for France and England, where he was teaching. During the two months he was away, I made 31 phone calls to him, many well over an hour long each. In these calls, I asked him more and more questions on the details of curing different hopeless diseases. All the information I learned off-camera is included in this User Manual.


I have found that the right question is like a key that opens a safe. Just because a healer has learned something doesn't mean you will ever know it — if you don't ask the right questions. I knew that if it weren't for me, you couldn't get this information, so I asked questions until there were over 700 pages of transcripts of our phone calls.


As you'll learn, Richard Schulze is no longer in practice. This Video Collection and Manual is the only chance you have of learning how to produce these cures for yourself.


I knew you were depending on me, so I made sure the details you needed were not missing from this Collection.


Now, let me give you the background of your two teachers, Dr. Christopher and Dr. Richard Schulze. Let's begin with the man who started it all, Dr. John Christopher.


Dr. Christopher was a man with a mission, to cure the sick with what he believed were God's natural methods of healing.


To the medical societies, he was a charlatan, a fraud, a quack, teaching a pack of lies about weeds to stupid, uneducated, gullible people. But to those he saved from death after doctors had shrugged their shoulders and given up, he was the greatest herbalist of the twentieth century.


As a young boy, he said to his Mother, “You know, Mamma. I would like to be a doctor when I grow up”. “Nonsense,” she said. "Doctors have to cut people when they operate, and you can't even stand the sight of blood when we kill a chicken for dinner.”


“Well, Mamma,” the young boy prophetically replied, “I am going to be a doctor who doesn't cut people.”


And that is what he became.


One snowy night in Utah, John Raymond Christopher was frightfully ill in bed with the croup. A knock came at the door. His father answered it to find, standing in the cold, a bearded man in shirt sleeves (no coat) who announced that a young child was ill, but was not to die, because he had an important mission here.


“Now do thus and thus to cut the phlegm,” he said. They turned to do his bidding, then turned back again to thank him, but he had gone - and no footprints were found in the deep snow.


As a boy, his mother suffered from both dropsy and diabetes, and she was not responding to conventional medical treatments. As Dr. Christopher recalled, “A wandering medicine man came to our house to treat my mother. He recommended several herbs, which seemed to make my mother feel better and give her more energy. However, soon afterwards, this man was put into prison because he was not a medical doctor, and did not have a license to practice. Since we were not able to gain any further advice from him, my mother started losing ground, got worse, and eventually passed away.”


His family remembers that the young boy watched his mother suffer a slow and very painful death. Her skin would stretch to bursting and gangrene would form. From that time on, John Christopher determined he would learn all he could about herbs — hoping he could eventually use them to prevent others from sickness and suffering like his mother's.


When he grew older, he enrolled in the law school at the University of Utah. But God held up His hand and said “NO” to law. John's career as an attorney came to a crashing end when he was a passenger in a horrible automobile accident, and he was pronounced dead, and taken to the morgue.


His family was called to identify him, and they saw a flicker of an eyelash. He was then rushed to the hospital. He suffered amnesia for many weeks which often recurred throughout his life. The medical doctors said he would do well to live to the age of 35, due to the concussion, amnesia, and back injury as well as the crippling arthritis he was born with. (The doctors were wrong; he lived till the age of 73.)


He survived not only trial by illness, but, as his sister-in-law Jane Steiner said, “I do not personally know of another man of this day and age who has suffered as much persecution and slander as Ray has — probably because of his two main faults: Too generous and too trusting, to the point of gullibility.”


As she said, “It's one thing to be judged and persecuted by nonbelievers and enemies, but to have so-called 'friends' turn away and slander his name for their own gain is another story.”


Many people, even the natural healers, were jealous of Dr. Christopher's miraculous cures. In Utah, the naturopathic physicians took him to court. They told him privately that he was curing people too fast and that he was costing them business. But he refused to change his ways.


Throughout his career. Dr. Christopher spent his life in and out of court and in and out of jail. He was handcuffed and taken away after one of his lectures for giving herbs to ease the suffering of a woman with terminal cancer.


Usually, the jury acquitted him against the judge's instructions. Finally in 1969, he was not so lucky and was convicted and given a suspended sentence. Because prescribing (suggesting herbs) without a license was a felony, Dr. Christopher was stripped of his citizenship and forbidden to vote. By what standard was he a criminal?


A surgeon once called up with a very sarcastic voice, saying he had heard about Dr. Christopher's “reputation”. He said he had a woman patient who had a blood clot. The surgeon said he had examined it, and decided to operate. But it was discovered that the woman had gangrene in her ankles and foot. So the hospital committee decided to remove the leg itself.


The woman's daughter was furious! She told the surgeon NOT to cut her mom's legs off. She ordered the surgeon to call Dr. Christopher. The doctor finally gave in. When he called, Dr. Christopher told him what herbs to use for the blood clot. He predicted the clot would be gone in three days. It was!


He also told the doctor what special herb to soak the mother's legs in to cure the gangrene. The doctor called back one week later and was so grateful. He said that, in a matter of days, the gangrene had disappeared. It was completely gone except for a little in the toes.


Desperate people, the “orphans of medicine”, beseeched him at all hours, even during his dinner. He knew how to help them.


One night, he says, he received a call in the middle of the night from his uncle: “Your favorite niece is going to die by morning. You had better come now to see her before she goes.”  For fourteen years, the father had ignored Dr. Christopher's methods, even though the child had been frail and sickly. But now, in his hour of crisis, he said, “By the way, Ray, can you bring some herbs?”


Dr. Christopher did, the girl was healed, and she grew up to raise two beautiful children of her own.


Dr. Christopher told about a woman who had broken her hip and both of her legs. The bones were broken so badly, they didn't think she could possibly heal. After all, the woman was past eighty. But she had heard about Dr. Christopher's recommendations for broken bones. She had no choice but to try them.


She put the herbal fomentations on six nights a week. After three months, her legs were perfect. Where the bones were shattered, they came together. Soon after that, she went out square dancing! I myself have witnessed bones regrow themselves by following his methods (You almost have to see the bones re-form for yourself to understand how great his methods truly are!)


Back then, around 1981, I was afraid Dr. Christopher's knowledge would be lost forever.


I personally believe he was one of God's great messengers of herbal healing. I know that much of his knowledge came from a higher source. He told me that often when he had an impossible case, and regular formulas were not working, he would pray to the Creator, and in a flash, he would have a new formula, often using herbs he had never used before.


He himself was a humble man. He used to call himself “just a little guy, not the big John R.” because he knew that his vast knowledge was but a scratch compared to the “heavenly” herbal wisdom that was released to him in bursts all during his lifetime.


The final curtain for the beloved Dr. Christopher began on February 25, 1982. He fell on the ice in his driveway, and the severe blow to his head caused amnesia again, and later brought on a stroke.


From then on, it was like a tug of war. His family would get him nearly well, and on his feet, then arthritis, or a fall, or another stroke or flu would knock him back down. When a newsletter from back east printed the story of his accident and resulting illness, he received hundreds and hundreds of touching letters from all over the U.S., Canada, and England, pleading, “Please Dr. Christopher, you must get well. Don't leave us, we need you.”


Dr. Christopher told his family he would stay to see two of his grandchildren christened. The children were blessed on Sunday. February 6th, 1983. That afternoon, Dr. Christopher became very restless and chilled and prayed aloud constantly, “Please let me die. Let me go home.” According to the family, “After a warm bath, he bid us all goodnight and said, I love you.” The family talked for awhile about the subject of God's will, and decided that they should not be selfish and hold him here.


In their own words: “We entered the room again to check his covers and found him dying. I am grateful we could all be there with him, hold him in our arms, tell him that we loved and appreciated him, and remind him that we WILL be together again.”


According to Bishop Callis Harms, speaking at the funeral of Dr. John Christopher:


“Like the Savior, he was despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.


“Like the Savior, Dr. Christopher went about doing good and healing the sick.


“And like the Savior, his teachings were opposed by an established profession who, because of their position and status, were threatened, and used the existing legal system against him and sought to stir up popular opinion in opposition.”


As one of Dr. Christopher's friends said, “Once in a great while, the Earth is blessed with an enlightened son who is able to raise the consciousness of his fellow man by his love, wisdom, and humor. It is as though a person has come from an angelic rank; someone who has a direct connection to a divine source of information.”


Dr. Christopher knew that man of today is out of touch with the herbal knowledge that was meant to be our heritage and our protection. We feel more comfortable with little white pills than with the bark or root of a healing tree. As Dr. Christopher says, “No matter what disease you have, there are herbs growing somewhere which can get you well.” The Collection shows you what these herbs are, and specifically how Dr. Christopher used them to cure diseases and conditions that others could not heal.


The story of Richard Schulze — Dr. Christopher's leading student, and your second teacher.


I've just discovered an herbalist who specializes in curing the so-called incurable cases — the cases everyone else sends home to prepare for their funerals.


This is precisely the kind of healer I have been searching for ever since the master herbalist Dr. John R. Christopher passed away over ten years ago. Now my search is over. I have found him.


Unknown to me, this man was Dr. Christopher's leading student. He actually went way beyond what he learned from Dr. Christopher — and created formulas and procedures no-one heard of because he had to. What this healer learned didn't come from old herbal books or weekend seminars. It came from 20 years of real-life experiences in a healing clinic that saved the anguished and ill.


While other herbalists took healthy people and helped them with their indigestion, he took the dying — and cured them.


And while other healers wrote books, gave speeches, and served on committees, he healed the medical throw-aways. They were his life.


The people who came to his door were so thin they were skin wrapped around bone, holding bandages of kotex and diapers to stop their tumors from leaking pus and blood, from their necks, their breasts, their thighs, anywhere! These people weren't just ill— they .were supposed to have died months ago, according to their doctors.


No one wanted to help these people. No one!


Not doctors, and not natural healers either. These patients had made out their wills, and talked to their families. They were ready to depart from this world.


Often, they came to him, like the lady with pancreatic cancer — not for a cure, but merely for relief of something like incontinence, so she could die in dignity, without diapers. He cured her kidneys, and her cancer too. In this SAVE-YOUR-LIFE Collection, I'll tell you how.


Other healers ran away from these cases in fear — but not him. He prayed for them to come. He told God, “I want to make regular cancer wards look like a party. I want the dying, the hopeless, the worst cases, because I want to put natural healing to the test.”


He was NOT AFRAID. Somehow, God's dying ones heard his prayer, and they came, and he SAVED them -- thousands of them. Some were rescued from breast cancer or uterine tumors, others from runaway liver cancer, or from brain tumors that filled half their skull, or from oat-cell leukemia.


Still others were cured of Lou Gehrig's disease, and 16 patients totally recovered from full-blown, last-stage AIDS.


This healer knew he had a mission to go where no natural healer had ever gone — to heal those who Mankind deems beyond help — and to break through all limits to discover the true, unused healing powers of the sick human body. And he succeeded.


But he paid a price.

He had to live as an underground man — a fugitive in his own country. He couldn't talk about what he was doing, because the authorities could take him away in handcuffs.


He knew every patient he talked to could be a government agent — preparing a case to put him away. He knew every phone could be tapped, and his even/ move under possible surveillance. To conceal his true identity and protect his life, he lived in a “safe house”— the location unknown to his family and friends.


He blacked out the windows on his secret clinic in California so that no one could see inside. There was no sign on the house, to avoid suspicion by neighbors. He only took referrals, and made patients sign massive legal forms to protect himself from counter-attack by the government and the A.M.A.


But out of a generous heart, he took a careless risk. He should have known better. To help others, he gave a public talk on his healing methods at a convention. It was too late. They heard him.


Within weeks, government agents with battering rams, bulletproof vests, and machine guns broke down his doors and took him off to jail in the middle of the night. Miraculously, by the hand of God, he escaped on a technicality and didn't have to go to the penitentiary — to serve time with dope dealers and child molesters.


He knew he couldn't count on winning on a technicality a second time. And he knew he couldn't heal the sick from prison, or see his new wife and their four-month-old baby boy from a concrete cell.


So instead, he quit his secret practice and decided to spend the rest of his life teaching his methods of curing incurable diseases. To protect himself and the identity of his patients, he's shredded his private files. They're gone. I was the last to see them. All that exists is now in his head — and he wants you to know it, in case anything ever happens to him.


Thank God, for you he's blowing his cover and going public — because what this man knows can save your life, and now you're about to learn it.


What has been lost in our country and in Europe and in most areas of the world is holistic practitioners dealing with degenerative disease. — Dr. Richard Shulze


Let's listen in to one of my many conversations with Richard Shulze and see why it's so hard to learn these kind of cures.


SCHULZE: Everybody knows that meadow-sweet is good for an upset stomach, or a little pain in the stomach; everybody knows that ginger is good for motion sickness, but nobody deals with anybody who is terminally ill. That's the bottom line. They don't even know how. And really what we're talking about is that it's a lost art.


If it wasn't for doctors like John Christopher and a handful of great natural healers in our country during the 30's, 40', 50's and 60's this would be dead in our country.

What I found interesting is when I first started working over in Europe, I thought, “Oh my God, traditional European medicine, that's where Jensen, Christopher, Airola and Stone got their information, that’s where it came from. I thought when I would come over to Europe, I would find that this kind of healing was gigantic.


But you know, it was dead, if not deader than the United States. And certainly, there are a lot more herbalists over here and they're allowed to practice, and they can take insurance. But what's happened: is that herbalism has degenerated to savory teas for minor complaints.


The methods that were used to keep people alive a hundred years ago; I mean, when I talk about some of these methods like hydrotherapy to “wash the blood”, people have never heard it before. You can find it in the antique stores in the old books, but it's not being taught anywhere. I don't know anybody else getting down and dirty with this the way I do. God, if I did, I'd go listen to him.


Why this information is banned at many herbal colleges.


BISER: You said you were banned from teaching at lots of herbal colleges here and abroad?


SCHULZE: You know there had been a lot of flack about various things. One of them is being involved with Dr. Christopher, certainly.


BISER: That causes flack?


SCHULZE: Oh, certainly. His system is looked at by a lot of the herbalists as being kind of folksy and unbelievable, and that type of thing. They think it's a lot of fish stories, and although they've never attempted to work with anybody using that holistic or intense type of a program, they still deny it and don't believe it.


BISER: They haven't seen it, but they deny it?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. You know, they're non-believers and they haven't made any attempt to learn or use what he did. So it's considered just more of the “unsophisticated” form of herbology by many in herbalism today.


I was speaking with one of the students at a top herbal college in England recently, and he told me, “Dr. Christopher was a folk hero, but those stories of miracle cures weren't true. They were just for inspiration — that's all, because herbs don't really do that.”


Unfortunately I get the same treatment as Dr. Christopher when I discuss my case histories. That's why they never mention my name to the public. They're embarrassed at what I do.


They don't even want to look me in the face when I tell them these stories. But I don't see THEM treating and curing terminal cancer and the other cases I've mentioned to you.

The public has no idea how the “professional” herbalists actually mock and laugh at the methods your readers are going to learn in this Collection. They have almost a contempt for the serious use of herbs for critical diseases.


If you look at one of the top naturopathic colleges, the Director of Botany at that college designs formulas for many companies and he doesn't put any herbs in them, they are all glandular extracts. It's horrifying.


BISER: So, if a person goes to the top herbal schools today, they are not going to hear about anything you do.


SCHULZE: Oh, no. There is no doubt about it, a lot of the herbal schools have gone the scientific route, because again they are trying to get recognized...


BISER: So you don't get recognized by talking about Dr. Christopher?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Not at all. Or by talking about things beyond herbology, talking about food programs, talking about changing their attitude. Most of your strict herbalists say that has nothing to do with herbology. They are using herbology the same way a doctor would use a drug; they are not even using it in a natural way.


BISER: In other words, herbalism for them is just a matter of different “drugs”, not a different philosophy of healing?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. At many of these schools, there's ash trays on every desk. Not a lot of dedication to natural living!


BISER: Has anyone ever said, “Richard, we don't want you teaching”?


SCHULZE: Oh, yes. I taught at one school where the first day during the break, I thought the building was on fire. And it was all of the students smoking in the hallway, so I gave them a strong lecture about that and they didn't want me back.


BISER: What did they tell you don't come back?


SCHULZE: Yes, they were saying that this was a school of herbology, and what did that have to do with whether a student smokes cigarettes or drinks beer or whatever?


There have been other situations at places I have spoken. I spoke at an herbalist college in Canada and they invited me to teach most of a semester, but after one week of my lectures, they told me to go home. I make people uncomfortable.


BISER: What was the problem?


SCHULZE: Again, they think I'm too radical. They think what I talk about is beyond herbology.


To many people who are involved in herbs, herbology is just kind of a quaint thing you do to feel a little bit better.

They hear the stories of the miracle cures, but they don't understand what is necessary to get them. You and I talked about an author who just wrote a big book. He is a very good herbal author, but he is also 150 pounds overweight, drinks a quart of wine a day and smokes five packs of cigarettes. There is a big difference between that and natural healing. You don't hear stories from authors like that about people with cancer or AIDS or neuromuscular diseases, etc. getting better.


When these authors and herbalists hear me, they want to bury their heads in the sand. It makes them uncomfortable, because it makes them reflect on what they are doing. The bottom line is, I had to develop programs and use programs for patients who came to me with very serious disorders. These people won't work with anyone like that.


I don't know anybody else who worked with someone with malignant cancer or AIDS. I can't think of anybody but me.


BISER: Have they ever said that you really have no business treating things like that?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I've had them tell me that I am going to hurt the profession.


BISER: How are you going to hurt the profession, by curing people?


SCHULZE: I've had them say, “Well, if you do so many things, how do you know what herb it was that cured the person?” I don't care. My focus from the beginning, and until this day, has always been, “Get the patient well. I'm not doing double-blind studies on rats here.”


BISER: They are concerned with getting accepted, not cures.


SCHULZE: I'm not afraid to say that herbs are only tools of natural healing. They like to see herbs stand alone.


In other words, echinacea boosts your immunity. But I'm sorry; if you are smoking cigarettes, popping down a six-pack of Bud with a pepperoni pizza, echinacea doesn't stand a chance. Let's get real. They don't like to hear that. They think these herbs will stand alone.


Red clover thins your blood, but forgive me, it doesn't stand a chance at thinning your blood if you are powering down a Big Mac cheeseburger every day for lunch. These herbs were designed to be part, like Dr. Christopher said, part of the whole program.


One of the things people have always said to me was, “How could you have worked with so many people who were dying? Weren't you scared?” It's not so scary, because you have nothing to lose.


BISER: When patients walk in, they are just about dead, so you can't mess them up!


SCHULZE: They have already been given the death sentence. The only place they can go is up.

You know what we have lost in the last hundred years?


We have lost natural healers with balls. I think that's the best way to describe it. These natural healers of 50, 60, 70 years ago, they knew what they were up against. The natural healers and herbalists today are using herbs that are impotent, they are making products that are weak, and they are using singular programs that are mild and can't cure.


I was talking to an herbalist over in England, and he was telling me about an herb that he has research on, that is good for killing cancer. I asked him about dosages, and he goes, “Well, I assume. You know, we started getting into the 'assumes'.


He goes, “So I assume you would take it internally.”


And I said “Oh, OK, how much?” And he goes, “Well, I'm guessing the average tincture dose.” And I say “What kind of cancer?” and the more questions I ask, the more he's fumbling, and of course, the reason is, because he's never, ever, used it. And this is what we've got out there. The herb books that are written are not worth the paper they're written on. They're not much better than blotting paper.


BISER: What it comes down to is this: the professional herbalists are afraid of stepping on toes. We're afraid of stepping on dead bodies — of the people who could have been cured if only someone had told them what to do.


Final words before you begin...


In most cases, the cause of your disease is not coming from where you think it is. In other words, you may have a head pain, but the problem may be a clogged bowel. You may have a kidney disease, but the real problem may be in your liver.


Therefore, if you go right to the section discussing your problem — and skip learning and doing the rest of the programs, you may likely stay sick. If you just take herbs for your diseased organ, and don't cleanse your body, and don't do the hydrotherapy etc., you may never get the full benefit that Richard Schulze or I intended for you to get. Beware of thinking medically while using natural healing.


Chapter 2: The Complete Program for Incurable Conditions


This is the program that has cured the medical throw-aways.


This is the program that can cure the cases that natural healers cannot heal. This is the program to use when everyone says it's all over— but-you still want to live.


The program was created many years ago by the late Dr. John R. Christopher at his healing clinics in the Southwest. The program was further developed by Dr. Richard Schulze at his “underground” clinic in California.


The program includes herbal formulas that are described in coming chapters and on the videotapes. The program also includes special routines that are described later. The only purpose of this chapter is to give you the essential information, and to answer certain questions that have appeared.


How long must you stay on this program? For at least 30 days. You may need to be on it for up to six months, depending on the severity of your condition. You can also do the 30-day incurables program as a touch-up when your health is running down again. Also, depending on your condition, you may be able to take a week break in-between the 30-day cycles. In that week break, you don't dive into junk food. You can just eat a quality vegetarian diet.


However, in severe cases, a break in this routine may not be advisable. Do not discontinue this program the minute your disease symptoms disappear. Continue until long after they are gone. Otherwise, you may be only partially healed.


Here is the program:


First is the food program. If you are seriously ill, you are to discontinue food immediately. You will be drinking one gallon a day of water and fresh juices. No food.


Dr. Schulze recommends a juicer with a pulp ejector, such as Champion or Juiceman. You want a juicer that lets the juice come out one side and the pulp out another. Otherwise, you'll always be having to stop and clean out the pulp from the juicer. (You can order juicers by calling this independent distributor: Champion Juicers (800) 882-0157. They have juicers from other companies too.)


According to Dr. Schulze, “I like the Champion juicer because it's versatile. It's a couple hundred bucks and you can make nut butters, frozen fruit desserts, and juices in it. Now supposedly the best one made is the Norwalk, but it's $2000. Who needs that? The Champion works great. Now the Juiceman, which is about $300, some people say it's a little easier to clean. I got my Champion 20 years ago, I've still got the same one — and no one is as hard on a juicer as I am.”


In any case, in far less serious cases, fast at least one day every week. Also, drink at least 8, if not 16, ounces of fresh carrot juice daily. So that you know, carrot juice is an excellent source of absorbable calcium.


You need a lot of nutrition to heal — but you don't need it from potatoes; you don't need it from heavy grain dishes that take you 6 hours to digest. And all that blood and energy is going to your digestive tract. JUICES ONLY - during the most critical phases of healing.


If you don't have a juicer, buy one. Richard Schulze refuses to work with patients who won't get a juicer.


Once you are off 100% juices, you will be eating a 100% total vegan vegetarian raw diet. This includes all vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, and soaked and sprouted beans and grains. Eat fresh organic produce that is locally grown and in season.


The only liquids are distilled water (never make herb teas without it) and herbal teas (non-caffeine) and fruit and vegetable juices. The only precaution is that some sick people have to be careful with fruit juices — not to get too much sugar. I myself use only a tiny quantity of fruit juice combined with a lot of water.


No alcohol, coffee, black tea or sugar.


No animal flesh, eggs, milk or milk products (cheese, yogurt, butter) can be consumed. No cooked foods (bread, baked potatoes, tofu, etc.). Eat only fresh, organic produce that is grown locally and in season.


Now we come to the herbal nutritional program. Dr. Schulze doesn’t believe in vitamin pills. As Dr. Schulze told me, “These are :chemicals, not foods. For example, did you know that niacin is made from boiling sulfur in the presence of asbestos? And vitamin B-12 is made by using treated sewage sludge as a raw ingredient. Can anyone really call this natural healing?”


Here is a formula for superfood. You take 4 tablespoons a day, two tablespoons in the morning, and two in the evening. The ingredients are: spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa grass, barley grass, wheat grass, purple pulse seaweed, beet root, spinach leaf, rose hips, orange and lemon peels and non-active nutritional yeast. If you are missing any of the ingredients, just do the best you can. Use whatever is available to you.


The best food yeast to get for making your own superfood is called, “Red Star T-6635 #12 Large Flake.” This is food yeast that is grown on beets as a food source. Ask your healthfood store to order it for you. If this doesn't suit you, try another type of yeast. We will be speaking about yeasts again in our chapter on neurological degeneration.


If you are under a great amount of stress, you can increase the amount of superfood per dosage, and you can take the increased dose four to six times daily. The food yeast in the superfood will give a lot of energy that can lift depression and often reverse symptoms of neurological damage.


You can make this yourself or purchase it. Ordering sources are included at the end of the Manual. Make the following nutritional drink:


8 ounces of fresh-squeezed fruit juice, or less if the sugar content does not agree with you. Some people may find apple juice suits them better than citrus juices, and is less drying to the skin.


8 ounces or more of distilled or pure water.

1/2 to one cup of fresh seasonal fruit.

2 ounces of food mixture from above recipe.


If adding fruit to a superfood mixture gives you too much sugar, you can mix the superfood in water, or in carrot or other juices.


My wife noticed that her skin got too dry on the vegetarian program, so she learned that she could add two tablespoons of flaxseed oil from Spectrum Natural to her superfood drink. It worked. She also put castor oil on her dry, cracking hands, which helped also.


One minor problem with adding any oil to superfood is that it can make some people sluggish. You may have to take the flaxseed oil in the evening, when any energy loss wouldn't matter as much. Another possibility is to add ground-up flaxseeds to your superfood drink, instead of flax oil.


Also, because of differences in metabolism, some people may do better on different oils. Flaxseed is not necessarily the best for everyone. I myself prefer sunflower seed oil.


Also, my wife noticed after several weeks that she was getting somewhat depressed on the program. Since she was not ill, she learned that she needed to add some beans and more calories to her diet, and since winter was coming, she needed a slightly heavier diet to help her adjust to the cold weather. Salads and fruit were no longer enough, as they were in summer. This solved the problem.


The liver/gallbladder flush.


Every morning must begin with either this liver/gall bladder flush or the kidney/bladder flush (described on the next page). You can alternate between the two flushes on a weekly basis.




Fall and Winter: 8 ounces organic apple juice or organic grape juice, or...


Spring and Summer: 8 ounces organic orange juice or citrus juice combination (juice of one lemon or one lime and enough orange, grapefruit or tangerine juice to make 8 ounces)


8 ounces distilled water


One to four clove(s) of garlic (start with one clove and increase daily) I myself take 4 huge cloves each time with no problem.


1 to 4 tablespoons of organic, virgin, cold-pressed olive oil (start with 1 tablespoon and increase daily)


One small (1 inch) piece of fresh ginger root (to avoid nausea)




Blend the ingredients in a blender and drink. Fifteen minutes after this drink, consume 2 cups of Detoxification Tea (formula given in the chapter on blood-cleansing) or a strong digestive tea such a peppermint leaf or ginger root. Drink an additional 1 to 2 cup(s) of tea in the early afternoon and 1 to 2 cup(s) in the early morning.


Also, during this flush, consume 2 dropperfuls (70 drops) of a Liver/Gall Bladder Tonic (see the chapter on liver cleansing for this formula) four times daily. It can be taken in a few ounces of water. Certain people may need to use this liver formula as a base and add more of an herb like chaparral, wormwood, or barberry for extra punch.


I myself find I need lots of extra chaparral tea, more than a typical person. What I do is take chaparral tea, and add the liver formula to it. Also, buy some large paper cups to drink your herb tea out of. The chaparral and other herbs can be difficult to clean off of glasses. Also, by using paper cups, you are reducing the amount of kitchen work you'll have to do, and this helps when you're not well.


Use an old pan to make chaparral tea. Its sticky resin ruins pans, unless you have the time and energy to use steel wool every time. With chaparral, you are better off making a tincture.


Feel free to add to these basic formulas to find what works for you. Never be afraid to intensify your program, or try different things.


The kidney/bladder flush. Do it every other week.


It doesn't matter if you have a kidney condition or not, do this kidney cleansing routine every other week, all week long.


Dr. Schulze has seen medical photographs and autopsies of kidneys that had objects in them that looked like coral, sea anemones with spikes, and deer antlers three or four inches in size. These are crystallized wastes — from the bodies of people who didn't necessarily have any kidney disease. The urine from some of his patients was full of bacteria, pus, and blood.


If you are on the incurables program, every morning you should do either the kidney/bladder flush or the liver/gall bladder flush described earlier. Ydu can alternate between these flushes on a weekly basis.




Juice of one lemon and one lime

16 to 32 ounces of distilled water

A pinch of cayenne pepper

Maple syrup to taste (optional)


Fifteen minutes after drinking the kidney/bladder flush, drink 2 cups of a kidney/bladder formula, given in the chapter on kidney cleansing. Also drink 1 to 2 cup(s) of this tea in the early afternoon and early evening.


In each cup of the Kidney/Bladder Tea, add 1 dropperful (35 drops) of a kidney/bladder tincture. The formula will be given in the chapter on kidney cleansing.


Herbal detoxification programs for incurable patients.


You must use an herbal cathartic formula every day to keep your colon active. Start with one capsule just after dinner and increase by one capsule daily until you get the effect you want. Ingredients for the formula will be given in the chapter on bowel cleansing.


You also take an intestinal healing formula each day. Take one heaping teaspoon in 4 to 8 ounces of distilled water or juice 3 to 5 times daily. The formula for this is in the chapter on bowel cleansing. It is the second formula given.


Also, every day, take 2 dropperfuls (70 drops) 4 times daily added to 2 ounces of juice or water of a blood-cleansing formula. The formula will be given in the chapter on blood-cleansing.


In addition, you alternate every other week with an echinacea root concentrate. Use two dropperfuls (70 drops) 4 times daily. The formula is given in the chapter on immune-system formulas.


All these dosages are starting points. I have taken two to five times as much with no problem. Don't be afraid of herbs, especially when you are on a complete program.


Optional nerve formulas.


People who are critically ill may be stressed-out. After all, how would any man feel if the doctor said he was going to cut off his testicles and that in three months, he would be dead anyway, and die in pain?


There are two different nerve formulas and different nerve herbs covered in various chapters, particularly in the chapter on nerve regeneration. The two basic nerve formulas are the nerve sedative formula and the nerve restore formula.


You may find the nerve sedative formula essential to calm down. Failure to calm down may inhibit your healing. Use two dropperfuls three times a day of the nerve sedative formula. You can increase that to double the dose. Also, you can take up to four dropperfuls at one time, as needed. The nerve sedative formula is given in the chapter on nerve regeneration.


Most sick people don't use enough cayenne pepper, and the pepper they do use is pathetically weak.


On the incurables program, you need to take three to six teaspoons of cayenne pepper per day. Start slowly and work up.


Also, you need to be taking cayenne that is at least 100,000 H.U. in strength. Most cayenne sold is only 40,000 H.U. strong. This is not what Dr. Christopher used in his clinics.


This is one more reason why people no longer get the healing results that Dr. Christopher used to get. They use lower doses of cayenne, and they use commercially available cayenne that is only a fraction of the strength he used to recommend.


A few people have a hot, dry metabolism and can only use cayenne pepper occasionally — and not regularly. I am one of these people. For these people, cayenne will make them run too hot.


SCHULZE: The best place that I've found to buy fresh peppers is any ethnic area of your town. Like in Los Angeles, I can get them in an Iranian market. They have good hot peppers. If you can find any Caribbean ethnic area, or Chinese, or Japanese, Korean or African, you'll get a better pepper than you can at the healthfood store.


All you want to say is, “What's the hottest?” If you don't have an ethnic area, try to find a grocery store that has a great produce section and just ask the produce manager, say “I want some hot peppers”, and they'll pick some up for you next time they go to the market.


Some peppers rate at 200,000 and the top of the line is 300,000. : I've never seen anything rate higher than that, and that's what habeneros are. They're just a Mexican chili pepper. It's an orange pepper that's shaped like a pumpkin, but it's only about the size of a nickel, and that's about the hottest one known.


BISER: What do you do? Do you dry them out in the food dryer?


SCHULZE: Oh yeah. Or you can just throw them on the counter on a paper towel or piece of cloth and they'll just dry out on their own. I've got bowls of them at my place. And when I buy them, I just toss them in an area that's going to get a lot of air. Or put them in one of those nets you can hang in a kitchen and put food in. And when they dry, they shrink down to about a Q-tip head. A little goes a long way. Wow!


There's another variety called pequin, which is called the African Bird Pepper. That's 300,000 also. Those are the two hottest peppers on the planet. I personally travelled with Dr. Christopher, and he always talked about African Bird Pepper, and that's what that is. Very few people have that or sell that. What the herb shops sold forever was 40,000 heat units chili pepper, but that was not the African Bird Pepper that Dr. Christopher used.


BISER: I can take the 40,000 unit regular pepper and hardly feel it?


SCHULZE: Yes, and see, that's not what Dr. Christopher talked about, there's another one of those missing links. Like I said, when Dr. Christopher used to talk about cayenne, he called it African Bird Pepper. That was the first time I'd heard that name. It was from Dr. Christopher.


BISER: So he was using 300,000 H.U. pepper?


SCHULZE: Oh yes. He was using really, really, hot stuff. The hottest he could get.


BISER: So, if he said 3 teaspoons a day, he wasn't talking about 40,000 units?


SCHULZE: No, he was talking about that big heavy-duty stuff.


BISER: And that got watered down to 40,000?


SCHULZE: Well, unfortunately, that's what the standard now is.


BISER: Yes, but that’s only a little more than a tenth of what he recommended.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. And this is why...I just did the eyewash on students. When I did this on students in England, we'd do the eyewash with no cayenne, then we'd do it with Dr. Christopher's recommended mount of cayenne with 40,000 H.U. peppers.


Then we'd do it with Dr. Christopher's recommended amount of cayenne with the 300,000 H.U. peppers, and when we use the 300,000 tuff, people have involuntary eye closure and they can't see for five minutes. And when they open their eyes ten minutes later, they say they see things they didn't even see before.


The key is we all want the hottest cayenne pepper we can get. The cayenne pepper that's sold on the commercial market nowadays, a lot of it, would have been considered junk by native peoples.


[Note from Sam Biser: Here is something I just learned: With these extra hot Mexican peppers, you need to start with a tiny part of a teaspoon and work your way up as you get used to it. Flush it down with plenty of water, and always have some food in your stomach.


I tried a teaspoon on the first day, and it hit my poor stomach like a hot brick. After ten minutes of terrible cramps, it passed, and I felt a lot better than before I took it. I find it was easier to take multiple doses of half a teaspoon during the day, rather than a full teaspoon at once.


Do not get this on your fingers and start touching your eyes. It will burn. Especially be careful not to touch your genitals after getting this on your fingers. If you do, you will be in agony for awhile. I realize this sounds contradictory, since hot cayenne is used in the eyewash. However, in the eyewash, the cayenne is in a liquid solution, and you are using it for a therapeutic purpose.]


Consume at least three extremely large coves of raw garlic every day. Eight cloves a day is preferable.


SCHULZE: In all the reports I've ever read on garlic, the least amount that was ever used was three cloves a day. So if anybody thinks that with one or two cloves a day, they're going to cure something, they're wrong.


BISER: When you say cloves, you don't mean those little tiny cloves?


SCHULZE: No, never. You need a clove an inch long and a half an inch wide.


BISER: Wow, that's a big clove!


SCHULZE: Yes, that's sort of standard, an inch long and a half an inch wide. They sell a lot of junk garlic today. And the junk garlic, of course, is when in one bulb of garlic, there are about 50 cloves of little slivers of a string bean. That's garbage garlic. It wasn't grown properly.


You can juice that, but who is going to sit down and peel that kind of garlic? A good kind of garlic bulb is about the size of a small lemon and should have about 15 large cloves of garlic in it, and you want to use one of those large cloves. Sometimes garlic cloves can be even bigger. They can be like an inch wide and an inch high, but generally an inch high, half an inch wide. One of those 3 times a day is minimum. That's a starting place.


BISER: But what's optimum when you're frightfully ill?


SCHULZE: Oh, about eight to ten cloves a day. There was a flu going around Los Angeles, and the minute a friend of mine felt it, he did twelve cloves, and that was it. It was gone, and so we need to get up around eight to twelve cloves in a day when we're talking serious disease.


You know, we had a lady call the other day and she said, “I don't like garlic.” My wife just said, “Don't get well.” If you want to undertake natural healing, don't be whining about the garlic odor in your breath with your social friends. I mean, we're talking here about saving someone's life.


BISER: What I did this morning for an energy drink, I just chopped up a whole 5-8 cloves of garlic, a handful of ginger, and mashed it up on a plate. Dumped it in some apple juice, stirred it and let the juice soak in for 10 minutes, and then drank it down. For me, the apple juice reduces the sting of garlic. I have this once or twice a day.


Other times, I put lots of garlic in the superfood drink in the blender, which grinds it up. I think I get more out of it by using a blender.


SCHULZE: Now, there's a drink! The ancients, the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, when they used garlic, they would use the whole bulb, ten or fifteen cloves. In fact, we bake garlic here and so we bake the whole bulb, and we never eat less than one per person.


BISER: When you bake it, do you have to clean it all up before you bake it?


SCHULZE: No, all you do is take that garlic clove, you can baste a little olive oil on it, put it in the oven and bake it like you would a potato, skin, everything and all. You don't have to do anything to it, and then when it comes out, you just squeeze the cloves and it come out kind of like peanut butter.


Now, it's lesser strength that way because the heat has destroyed some of the properties, but when you use it in that way, you can eat twenty-thirty cloves of garlic easily, and spread it on whole grain bread. You can put it in with vegetables, so that's a nice way for people when raw is a little bit tough on their system. They can just bake it a little bit. But not if you're on the incurables program. Then, it's raw only.



The water therapy program.


High enemas: You must use a high enema every other day with an implant afterwards. Use only distilled water for the high enema. The implant can be: eight ounces of Aloe vera gel and 8 ounces of distilled water (soothing).


You can also use: two ounces of wheatgrass juice with 16 ounces of water. (This is detoxifying.)


Another possibility is: 1-2 cloves of garlic blended into eight ounces of raw apple cider vinegar and eight ounces of distilled water (this would be anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal).


Use your imagination: If you feel you need a blood-cleansing tea as an implant, use red clover, or use echinacea root tea for its immune-enhancing abilities.


Hot and cold showers: This is the most effective way to move the blood and create circulation. This procedure is covered in much more detail in the chapter on using water to cure. Once daily, you must do a complete hot and cold shower. You will start with hot water for one minute, then cold for one minute. Repeat this seven times, so the shower should last about fifteen minutes.


Another time daily: You can do a complete hot and cold shower routine again or just a partial one just by applying the water directly to the affected area, such as the breast, or the head, or the genitals. Massage the area vigorously while you do the hot and cold shower.


If the shower is impossible, then use hot packs and ice packs.


Castor oil packs nightly are critical. There's no excuse for skipping them.


Every evening, do a castor oil pack over the affected area and leave on all night long. You can do multiple castor oil packs over different parts of the body. They can be kept warm with a hot water bottle. Let's soak a minimum one-foot square piece of flannel. Heat the castor oil pack before you put it on.


Don't be stingy with the size of the castor oil pack, or with the amount of oil you put on it. It is better to cover more of the area of your body than less. If you use more, you are cleansing the nearby areas which are probably infected or congested also.


According to Richard Schulze, “You just go to your local fabric store and get some cotton muslin that's used for making baby diapers. They have it in big bolts, and you can just buy a whole bunch of that. Cut it up as you want.”


“It helps if you seam the edges, and if it isn't thick enough, you can actually buy heavier weight cotton and put it in. and kind of sandwich it in-between two pieces of this. Then you can soak it in some castor oil and you have a really nice, thick pack. Or you can sew multiple layers of this together, or you could even put cotton batting inside.

“Get some good cotton batting or cotton felt, and put it inside, like one layer of cotton batting and one of muslin on each side and stitch together around the edges and that holds a lot of castor oil.”


Cover the pack with plastic to keep it from soaking into your blankets and sheets — which may get stained anyway. I put the plastic over the castor oil pack, and then I put on a thick, terry cloth robe, and then have the plastic on top of the sheet.


Baking soda can help in getting the oil off you in the morning, in addition to soap. The baking soda seems to soak up the oil.


Eventually, the pack may get stained with colors from drawing out toxins. Change it with a fresh pack. It is not necessary to refrigerate the castor oil pack during the day.


Some critically-ill patients have done castor oil packs over their entire body, and I heard of one terminal cancer victim who was saved by his son doing this. He soaked a sleeping bag in castor oil and put his Dad in it.


Be careful with castor oil, because it can spoil all your bedding and furniture. I use huge plastic garbage bags laid out flat underneath me on top of the sheets. When I do a castor oil compress on my head, I cover the whole pillow, and the headboard of the bed, with plastic. When you are doing castor oil packs, use underwear and T-shirts that you keep separate from your regular underwear. Castor oil can leak into your undergarments, and you will never really get all of it out.


If you need to do castor oil compresses on your head, cover your head with a plastic sheet, or wrapped-up plastic garbage of the proper size. Then, place over that, a winter cap to hold it all in place. If you are doing a castor oil pack on your genitals, use disposable adult diapers, with plastic underneath, to keep it from getting on your bedding. It still will— but not as much.


When you get castor oil on your hands, wipe them off with paper towelling before you wash them. Otherwise, you will get the oil all over our bathroom fixtures. What I do after putting the compresses on, and you can have several on in different parts of your body at the same time, so put a terry cloth robe over you to help keep the oil from brushing on to anything in your house.


The cold sheet routine must be done by all patients.


Finally, the cold sheet treatment -- the artificial fever routine: Do a cold sheet treatment once a week. The second or third time you try this or any procedure, you will know what to expect and be more comfortable with it. Do NOT skip the cold sheet routine and do everything else.


There is NO herb or physical exercise that substitutes for this treatment. If you wimp out, your body loses. Full instructions are included in my chapter on water cures. Also, special instructions for children are included in my children's chapter later on.




Get all electronic devices out of your bedroom.


One researcher said, “Because of electronic stress, the bedroom is often the most dangerous place in the home.” That means, get rid of televisions in your bedroom, electric clock radios, any electronic devices.


According to Wolfgang Maes, German researcher into electromagnetic stress, “The electro-magnetic fields in bedrooms are often worse than under high-tension power lines.” In addition, he claims that people are more than 100 times more vulnerable to electro-magnetic stress during sleep.


He said that since you spend one third of your lifetime in your bedroom, it should be a temple, not an electronic warehouse. TV screens radiate all night long, even after you unplug them.


In one case, a two-year-old child was very sick with headaches and severe muscle cramps all over her body. She was nearly dead. She was lying in her bed at night with a radio alarm clock directly under her pillow. The child took to the alarm clock every night because it was so warm. She liked the temperature.


When Wolfgang Maes measured the field directly near the alarm clock, it was 30,000 nanotesla. This is thirty times more than under a high tension line. (The level under a high tension line is from 800 to 3,000 nanotesla.)


The parents took the radio away immediately. The little girl got better week by week. About three to four months later, the father called and said that about 80% of the girl's problems had disappeared.


You can test your bedroom for electrical pollution with an electro-stress meter. To get them, write or call, The International Institute for Bau-Biologie, PO. Box 387, Clearwater, Florida 34615. The phone number is (813) 461-4371.


Another critical thing, and you may laugh at this, but you may have to move the position of your bed inside your bedroom.


The entire earth is threaded with an invisible grid of energy lines every 6-8 feet. If your bedroom or work area lies over these lines, or, if they intersect over your body while you sleep, there is a great chance you will have health problems such as heart attacks or cancer. These were discovered by a German medical doctor, Ernst Hartmann, M.D., who named them Hartmann lines.


Cats love Hartmann energy lines, so if your cat loves a certain area of the bed, make sure your body never lies over that point. A woman in Germany had three cats. They all slept in one tiny spot on the bed when she wasn't there. The woman also slept on this same spot. It went right through her chest area. She died of breast cancer.


Ants love to build hills on Hartmann lines. Dogs and horses avoid the lines. Birds in nature rarely build a nest on a Hartmann line. A lot of pet birds die because their owners unknowingly put the cage right on a Hartmann knot — an intersection of two Hartmann lines at right angles.


In different generations, three different people slept in the same bed. The bed was where two Hartmann lines crossed. They all died of stomach cancer. Dr. Hartmann once told a woman, “You're lucky you don't sleep on that spot.” She replied, “Oh, God, that's where my grandmother died.”


It takes a trained and sensitive dowser to locate these energy grid lines. These people are often impossible to locate.


The best thing to do is what I did: use your intuition. Ask yourself if this is contributing to your disease. I moved my bed and now I sleep much sounder and feel stronger in the morning.


Physical exercise and bodywork.


Massage the entire body every day with special emphasis on deep foot reflexology and all around the problem areas. Do not be afraid to touch sick parts of your body. Put some life back there. You must not avoid the parts of your body that are hurting.


Alternate castor bean oil and olive oil for your massage oils. Forget wheat germ oil. The wheat germ oil that Dr. Christopher used to recommend may now be rancid, or fortified with artificial vitamins.


Use a natural bristle skin brush and SCRUB yourself thoroughly every day. It stimulates the lymphatic flow and your lymphatic system is the clear fluid of your body. It doesn't have a pump like the heart. It's the white blood and it's what contains pure immune cells. Skin brushing moves the lymph tissue. You can move the lymph just by rubbing your skin. It's one of the best ways to move that lymph around the body.


Exercise: you must exercise every day. Do whatever you can, but push yourself. Increase the amount every day. You should breathe hard and work up a sweat. One hour each day is to be your eventual goal. If you rest, you rust. Or worse, you die.


Your mental attitude.


Richard Schulze highly suggests that anyone who has been diagnosed as incurable or hopeless do the following: throw out the diagnosis and start on a healing program immediately. The incurables program has no power unless you put all the time and energy you have into it. You must give it 110%.


Here is what you need to do or understand:


1.  LOVE: giving it and receiving it is the most powerful cleansing and healing tool.

2. Be responsible for yourself. You created this problem and you can get rid of it. No one ever got better by feeling sorry for himself.

3. The doctors were wrong. You can get well.

4.  Forgive everyone in the past, including all your doctors. See Dr. Christopher's personal story on hate and cancer on Volume Three of the videotapes.

5. The main function of your body is to repair and heal, so let's get started. There are NO incurable diseases. Get positive, right now. Believe. Start NOW.


When your doctor says, “You have six months to go.” What does it really mean?


BISER: What does it do to your immune system when they say you're going to be dead in six months?


SCHULZE: Well, you know, the scientific end is that, by depressing yourself, you're depressing almost every function of your immune system.


BISER: So, they just killed your immune system by saying that to you?


SCHULZE: That's right. Your mind is now sending chemical messages to your immune cells, “We're going to die. We're going to die. Stop fighting.”


BISER: What do you tell patients?


SCHULZE: One of the things I always tell people is that everything that you can create in your body, you can get rid of.


That keys them a little bit to think, “OK, wait a minute. I got myself into this mess, I can get myself out.” I let them know that what the doctor means is that you're going to be dead if you're an average American. The doctors aren't talking about the vegetarians who exercise, who clean their bowels regularly and who do a liver flush. They don't know anything about that.


BISER: That’s how they look at it. It's six months— if you’re going to do like everybody else.


SCHULZE: Yes, if you're going to go home and continue the six-pack of Bud every night, watch Roseanne on the color TV from four feet away and get that radiation, not exercise, sit in your easy chair, have your negative thoughts, be constipated like the average American, then in six months you'll die of pancreatic cancer.


You know, they're right, they're absolutely right: You will.


But they don't know anything about if you go home, throw the color television away. Get the blender out, make liver flushes, start exercising, read inspirational books, use high enemas, and herbs, and a vegetarian food program, and use hot and cold showers. There’s not a book written on what will happen if you do that.


So, because they don't know and they don't know anybody that's done that, they say you're dead in three to six months.


BISER: Then your people feel better when you talk to them?


SCHULZE: Of course. It makes sense to them. All the test subjects the doctors are referring to are New York City taxicab drivers or something like that. They take a group of typical diseased, rotten Americans and base their deadly comments on that. Ignore them, and get on the incurables program immediately.


Additional routines for the incurables program.


Every day, strip naked and take a sun and air bath for 10 to 15 minutes. Everyone has been brainwashed into believing that the sun is a killer. The sun heals — when used wisely. There were entire clinics in Europe in the early 1900's that healed serious diseases with the rays of the sun. They called it Heliotherapy.


Every day, take a walk outside in your bare feet and shuffle them in the grass or dirt, even lie down on the earth. Do deep breathing while you are outside. Fresh air will help you heal faster.


Take naps. One to three short naps a day, more if you need. Don't make naps too long; you can get groggy if you lay there too long. Better to take more naps and shorter ones. Many patients ask Richard Schulze for a formula to give them energy, and they tell him they are tired after lunch. What's wrong with that? In Europe, everyone rests after lunch. In America, people take coffee to force their glands back to work when all they need is rest.


Use only natural soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. Never use deodorants, perfumes, colognes, etc. You may use pure essential oils if you smell. Wear only natural fiber, cotton, wool and silk. No polyester, nylon or even blends.


Have this potassium broth as much as necessary: This broth will flush your system of unwanted salts and acids, while giving you a concentrated amount of vitamins and minerals. Fill a large pot with 25% potato peelings, 25% carrot peelings, and whole chopped beets, 25% chopped onions and garlic, 25% celery and dark greens. Add hot peppers to taste.


Add enough distilled water to cover vegetables and simmer on very low temperature for a minimum of one to two hours. Strain and drink only the broth, put the vegetables in your compost. Make enough for two days, refrigerate leftover broth. It is important to use organic vegetables. We do not want to consume any toxic insecticides, pesticides or organic chemical fertilizers while we are on a cleansing and detoxification program.


Finally, and this is my opinion (Sam Biser), consider using Celtic salt, the only natural, unheated ocean salt I know of, in your food. You; can obtain this from: The Grain and Salt Society, EO. Box DD, Magalia. California 95954. Without sufficient salt in your diet, your body will remain dehydrated, no matter how much fluid you drink, because you cannot retain water without salt.


Learn how Dr. Schulze heals patients whom other healers cannot help.


BISER: What is the basic mistake other healers make in not getting results with incurable cases?


SCHULZE: Not enough intensity. That's the big problem.


You know, when I'm over in Europe, the greatest healers line up their worst cases for me in the hallway. These are the people who they haven't been able to get well. The big problem is that everyone is afraid of hurting someone. They don't want to break the patient.


BISER: The big problem is death!


SCHULZE: Absolutely. They didn't want to push the patient too far.


BISER: So what do they do, keep the doses and routines moderate?


SCHULZE: That's right. And yet, I find when I look into the lives of these patients, the way that they took care of themselves before they got sick was very intense. These people were drinking pints of wrong beverages, and smoking cigarettes and on a steady diet of animal foods. And people are afraid that a bit of natural healing is going to overdo it. So I turn up the volume on everything.


I have gathered a great sense that the human body is incredibly strong — and I have yet to kill someone. I have yet to do a treatment, like put someone in an ice bath, or give them a cold sheet treatment, and see them die. No one has died on me. I dare them to die on me. People are so much stronger than anybody can ever imagine.


And so I get these patients, and I do in a day what these healers were having these people do in two weeks' time, and everybody breaks into a sweat and stands back and thinks, “Oh wow, I can't believe what he's doing to Mrs. Jones.”


Herbs could not heal one man of a kidney stone until the patient had a tough, painful session of foot reflexology.


BISER: And what might you be doing to Mrs. Jones that they hadn't done?


SCHULZE: Oh, I might be getting right down to give her a colonic myself, but with some deep muscle work in the gut.


Or I might just work on those feet with some heavy foot massage and some deep reflexology. Once, I saw Dr. Christopher work on a guy who had a kidney stone and he had done the herbal routines and he couldn't pass the stone. And Dr. Christopher got on his feet, and the guy felt like Doc was putting a nail through his feet. And the guy passed the stone within an hour. The man had done all the herbs, he just needed his nerves stimulated to make something happen.


“When a person hasn't gotten results, then I know I have to go in there and intensify everything.”


SCHULZE: Most practitioners are a little afraid to do that because of their insurance, and even if they've been in practice for ten years, they're still frightened for themselves and for the patients. What they don't understand is that they're hurting the patient by being timid.


Usually the healers are not doing enough of everything. Their treatments are lightweight.


You know, so many people are afraid to care for their patients, but in my first twenty years, I've had it all happen to me — so I'm not afraid of anything. I've had my butt kicked, so what's the worst thing that could happen? I've been beaten up a dozen times.


What are these patients going to do to me? I'm not afraid of them. You know what I'm saying?


This tooth right here got knocked-out or kicked out. I did kick-boxing for two years. That's probably one of my weak points, that I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid of anybody or anything. I don't have those kind of fears. I'm not afraid of the patient.


What are they going to do -get mad at me, cry, call me a jerk? I've been called a jerk. They can't hurt me, so I'm not afraid to just drill them. I'm not afraid of their tears; fine, cry, when you stop crying, we will continue. If you want to yell at me, if you want to slam the door, fine. Don't let it hit you on the butt on the way out. I just turn up the volume. So I think that is the biggest thing.


BISER: What if the healer gets the patient to a plateau and can't get him all the way healed?


SCHULZE: It means the healers are afraid to do more. They are thinking, “Oh gosh, I can't say that to them.”


But I don't care. I'll ask them about things, like, if I see their husband, I'll say “What is he like? Do you love him? Do you have a good relationship? Do you enjoy sex?” I just go and go. I want to know everything. If I see a little something, I want to pick into it. If I'm asking a question and I see them go blank, I say, “What are you huffing about? Does this make you mad what I'm saying here? I'm saying you can be well. Is that a problem?”


I don't let up and I keep making it tougher and more intense. They just love it. This is where my reputation in Europe has gotten big.


BISER: As a butt-kicker?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. And I don't give up. More cayenne, more tinctures. More everything. On my last trip, I saw a woman with a brain tumor. I took the entire program of what the herbalists were giving her all day long, and for me, that was only one morning dose, and I repeated that 6 to 8 more times that day.


I found out she worked in a dry cleaning place, and was getting all those toxic fumes. I told her to quit her job and get in a less toxic environment, but all the healers had been too embarrassed to tell her.


I take people in these clinics and I say, “Get me twenty pounds of ice in the tub upstairs,” and if I get a patient who says, “You don't understand.” Then I say, “Fine, let's go upstairs and get in the tub of ice .water. Let's see if that brings us through the situation.”


“Why I throw people in buckets of icewater.”


BISER: Why throw people in ice? What does that do?


SCHULZE: You can't be cool and aloof when you are in a tub of ice. You can't hold on to your stubbornness. You're being stuck and being mad. You cry. It's very painful. It's a shock, shock treatment. I've taken people that have been in the clinic and grabbed them by the back of the hair and held them in the shower. It's great to know the martial arts. They end up loving it, because no one else would do that to them. But they get well.


Of course, we have miraculous healings. And again, one of the only reasons we have these miracle healings is because I crank up the volume and turn up the juice. The thing is, too, I don't quit. I don't run out of things to do.


There is so much. How can you run out of things to do? I think: if I ever did, I would start at the beginning again. Or do them in a different sequence — or add more together. There is no shortage of natural remedies or treatments. That's what your readers have to understand about the healing process: don't hold back.


BISER: In other words, it's not a place for timid little ants.


SCHULZE: You got it. Everybody thinks they are doing something intense, and I tell you, give it to me and I can do it 10 times more intensely. And nobody gets hurt, and everybody gets better. I have never seen a person break. One of the things I do best is just feel secure enough to turn up that volume.


BISER: So, if you did not turn up the volume, the family was heading for the funeral home?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Then it's time to carve in the second date on the tombstone.


I get some people in my office, and I'll say, “I think you need to drink a couple of glasses of carrot juice a day,” and they go, “I did that.” And I go, “Well, you need to take hot and cold showers,” and they go. ; “I've done that before.” You go through the list of herbs, and they tell you, “I've done that before.”


But they have never done it all at once. They haven't put this entire program together — and they haven't done it every day. There is incredible power in having the program together. These people have never experienced that kind of healing power.


How you can tell whether a person is having a healing I crisis, or whether they are going to die.


BISER: When people start dumping toxins or feel sicker, how do they know if it's a healing crisis, or their disease getting worse?


SCHULZE: There is only one way. You know, if someone is throwing up bile, okay how do I know if that's healing or disease? Well, what did they do last night?


If they tell me they went to the bar, had four light beers, a couple of shots of Tequila, and ate a pepperoni pizza, that's a disease crisis. But if they tell me they have been fasting for a week, it may look identical, but it's a healing crisis. A simple way to tell if they are getting worse or better is what you have been doing. You know that if you have been taking care of yourself, your body is responding in a positive way.


Your body will push and push, and it will eliminate, and you will think it's going too far, but there's one thing you learn in first year immunology: the major function of your body is to survive — not to die, not to fall apart if you cleanse your liver and then terminate itself. It will do everything necessary to live.


BISER: But how do you know if the person isn't just getting ready to die — and it's not a cleansing at all?


SCHULZE: Let me tell you a story. I've been working with a little girl with a brain tumor. We went through to a point where the parents thought she was going to die. And the parents were panicking and getting worse. The mother was crying, the dad was depressed. And then I went out of town yesterday and all of a sudden she had some miraculous healing.


Old-fashioned doctors used to call it a healing crisis. That isn't a good enough term, the term should be: You think you are going to die.


Remember that guy I told you about who had the bone cancer and we thought he was going to die? His family his wife, thought he was checking out. And then he turned right around. And then right after he looked his worst, he got better, and then all the bone cancer was gone. Sometimes I think that when the body is in its healing process, you just get worse and worse, and then all of this stuff seems to kick in all at once.


I tell patients not to get too attached to these ups and downs.


I do believe, like Dr. Christopher did, that everyone has a time to die. And you have to be enlightened enough to feel it and know it. I have a real hard time with that. I see these people and they look like they are dead. I don't know what is keeping them alive. I think to myself, “This is it. They’re not going to be one of the many lucky ones.”


And then the next thing I know they are well. And so I would have done them a real disservice if I would have said to go to the St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and eat chocolate and wait to die.


I'm a bad person to decide who should live or die. That's not for me to say. I try to empower the patients into that and let them decide. Maybe they will get some signal. Maybe God will talk to them. I've had patients who absolutely knew. They said, “I'm not going to make & through this. Let's have a party.” And they had a party, and a day late they were dead.


BISER: So patients actually tell you that?


SCHULZE: Yeah, they tell me. So I have never, ever told a person they are not going to make it. Even when they are dying. Even when they are vomiting blood. I go, “well, let's just take one day at a time”. I have never said, “This is it.” How could I say that to someone?


BISER: You don't know.


SCHULZE: No, I really don't. And unless God speaks to me personally, I'm not going to write anybody off as dead. So I always say, “Keep going.” And that's how I cured so many that others left behind.


Chapter 3: Getting Rid of static Electricity


Both Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze believe that you have to “ground” your body electrically by having periodic contact with the planet. They did this by having patients take their shoes and socks off and walk on the grass. You may think this is trivial or nonsensical, but these two great healers didn't think so [see video: Grounded].


SCHULZE: I've done that with lots of people and have seen great healings. It's the absolute cure for insomnia. Quality sleep is what sick people need.


I have people with chronic insomnia and I have them meet me down at the beach for their session. I have them come in their swim suit, whatever time of year it is. I take them out to the ocean and throw their butt in the waves.


I roll them in the sand until they look like a sugar donut. I dump seaweed on them. I make them run up and down the beach, and go in the waves again. They're getting the sun, the fire, the air energy, the water energy, the earth energy. It's what they call the four elements. They're getting it all.


These people always call me and say, “I almost passed out on the way home.” They never have a problem sleeping.


Dr. Christopher said the body has to be grounded, and it doesn't get grounded through sneakers, and it doesn't get grounded until you take your shoes off and you touch the planet. We have electrical energy going in our body. Our heart beating is electrical energy. Our brain impulses are electrical energy. We need to ground that electricity.


So to get rid of this excess electrical energy that we generate, you have to touch the planet. I have seen people grow plants on the 30th floor in New York, and those plants don't grow. Then, they ran a copper wire down 30 stories and put it into the ground. It was unbelievable what happened to those plants.


How a woman with uterine cancer helped cure herself by getting back in touch with the earth elements.


BISER: Have you ever had an incurable case helped by getting them to walk on the ground barefoot, or is that a technique for insomnia?


SCHULZE: No, it's part of the whole incurables program. I had people with cancer that it helped, because they were so stressed out. Anybody that's stressed out needs to get back in touch with the simple things in life. All the old nature cure clinics used 5 minutes of sun bathing and 5 minutes of air bathing and then hot and cold water. Getting your clothes off is a big part of this.


I've had people who were stuck and weren't getting rid of their cancer — and then this turned them around. I had a woman with uterine cancer. I remember that the big thing that started her whole cleansing process was just getting in the ocean, or getting in some water outside, and taking some walks at the beach, letting go of that stress.


The power of the sun and air is incredible. But we don't use it.


“I take people down in the wintertime with colds and flus and throw them right in the ocean. And they get cured.”


BISER: Don't the people say you are going to kill them?


SCHULZE: But it doesn't kill them, it cures them.


I had a lot of people who had flu for three months, and they think they are going to die. They have used every antibiotic and I would say. “Come on down to the ocean; let's take a little walk on the beach.” Now we are talking January, and the water temperature is 55 degrees.


BISER: They think they are going for a walk?


SCHULZE: They tell me, “I'm so sick, I shouldn't even be out here.” And I go, “How about this?” and I throw their ass with all their clothes on right into the ocean.


Oh, they gasp for air, you know, but they are not drowning, they are in two feet of water. They say “I can't believe you did this. I'm going to die.” You know what? They just get better.


And one reason I do this is to show them that 98% of their body is working fine. People who are sick focus on their sickness and not on the thousands of functions that go on every hour that are working.


BISER: Is it like shock therapy to go in the water when they are sick?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It's the cold sheet treatment. Now they are in their wet clothes, and they have got to walk a mile back to my office off the beach. I make sure we walk a long way. They are shivering, they are shaking, and they are getting the cold sheet treatment with salt water. There couldn't be a better therapy. They walk home in cold, wet clothes. They go home in their car after walking a mile in these wet clothes, and by the time they get home, they probably have a 103 degree fever. I have them get into a hot tub, drink some hot herb tea and it's brilliant.

I used to do that until I got famous for tossing people into the ocean. I mean, I tossed owners of banks into the ocean. You wouldn't believe it, but they loved it. I used to “torture” them.


But it really is effective therapy because it makes everybody sleep better. Why? Because you have finally released the static electricity. You've grounded out your body. Think about it. Every time they have walked outside they have been in rubber-soled shoes, they are in their house on a nylon carpet on the third floor. I know people that in a year's time haven't touched the earth.


You have to touch the planet every day. That's part of the incurables program. When people get that much static electricity, everybody's mad and yelling at each other. Everybody's pissed-off. They can't even think straight. But put them back in touch with the elements and that anger and that stress drain away back into the earth.


You know what's absolutely brilliant is to take a hot shower, get it really hot and then go out naked in the snow. I've done it a thousand times. Turn around a little bit, jump in the snow drift, and get in the house. The first time you do it, you think it will kill you, but it's the greatest hydrotherapy.


Chapter 4: Using water to cure: the power of hydrotherapy.


This may be the most important chapter in this manual.


Water therapy can produce cures that are not possible with herbs.


Cold water stimulates and hot water relaxes. Together, they are like a universal pump that makes blood flow. Circulation produces cures.


Herbs cannot cure if blood cannot circulate. I call this Riser's First Law of Natural Healing. Memorize it.


When I speak of water therapy, I am not talking about soothing baths to relax tired and tense healthy people. I am talking about water treatments so strong that cancer tumors can shrink by half in four hours. I am talking about physical transformations that make the "old, sick you" seem like another person.


If you avoid these water cures out of timidity, you are cheating yourself out of a cure.


What you are about to learn here is NOT taught in more than one major herbal school. The herbal leaders are afraid of lawsuits, or as one of their wives said, “Do we have to mess up the kitchen with herbs?”


“Yes, Virginia, I'm afraid we might have to get some messy herbs on the countertop. Try to pull yourself together. And, I don't know how to break this terrible stinky secret to you, but we might actually have to get some sheets dirty (I know; an awful thought!), and heaven forbid, throw them out and buy clean, new ones. Now there, try to calm down, it's just the poisons from the cancers being removed.”


Cowards should leave the building. I am now about to teach you how to cure like they did hundreds of years ago.


Do this Cold Sheet Treatment once weekly if you are doing the incurables program. Here is the procedure:


STEP ONE: First, you take a cold enema to clear loose fecal matter but of your colon before you begin the procedure. You can add herbs to the water, such as catnip or red raspberry A cold enema causes the rectal area to contract, which helps you retain the fluid longer before you expel the tea and the fecal matter. After expelling it, proceed to Step Two.


STEP TWO: After expelling the herbal tea, the second step of the cold sheet treatment is an ‘injection’ of a garlic mixture. You will need rectal syringe from the drug store to do this; an enema tube will get clogged up. Put eight to ten large garlic cloves in a blender with 50 percent apple cider vinegar and 50 percent distilled water. Dr. Schulze gays it's like Napalm in your rectum. Put it in with a rectal syringe — and you have to get it in all at once, because once you get it in, it will come right back out.


According to Richard Schulze, “It's powerful. It burns. That person lights up. They will run to the toilet, but it doesn't all come out. In about 2 minutes, the burning and the cramping go away. I think it's incredibly grounding. It seems to break any psychological armoring the person has. The person knows immediately that this is something that they have never had before.”


STEP THREE: Get in a hot bath, as hot as you can make it without hurting the flesh. The water is kept at its hottest for as long as the patient can stand it. Before you enter the tub, have your helper place in the water, an ounce or more of cayenne pepper, an ounce or more of ginger, and an ounce or more of dry mustard. Get good high-potency mustard. A lot of the American mustard is quite weak. Coat your genitals with plenty of vaseline to protect them. Herbal oils will not do the job.


The cayenne, ginger and mustard you use in the cold sheet are not loose in the water, they are in a bag.


If you put them in loose, you'll plug up the drain and it's a real mess. So the best way to do it, if you don't have any cloth, just cut a square out of an old T-shirt, put a level handful, which is about an ounce, of cayenne pepper, an ounce of ginger root, and an ounce of mustard seed, preferably powdered, but anyway that you have them. Put them |into this piece of square cloth, tie it up with a piece of string, and just toss that in a very hot bath and then squeeze it, so you kind of activate it multiple times for about ten minutes before the person gets in the bath. The water will turn a yellowy orange, and it'll choke you. The fumes will choke you a little bit because of the volatile oils coming out of the cayenne. The hot herbs in the water will help build an artificial fever.


To further accelerate the fever process, drink hot, herbal tea while you are in the bath. According to Richard Schulze, “For adults, the best bitter diaphoretic (fever-producing) tea is yarrow. That's what Dr. Christopher suggested.


I prefer ginger instead. Ginger is a tea that most people like the taste of. It really activates the digestive system; it makes you sweat, it's a diaphoretic, and it's common. Yarrow's great, but I'm always looking for what can I get out of, you know, Save-on or 7-11, or Alpha Beta, or Piggly Wiggly? I mean, yarrow's great, but suppose it's winter time in Virginia? Well then, what can I get from the grocery store?


And usually, you can always get ginger, even if they don't have fresh ginger in the produce department, just go to the spice section and buy a can of ginger. In fact, in the spice section, you can get the cayenne, you can get the mustard, and you can get the ginger for the bath and you can get the ginger for the herbal tea.


You can get minced, dehydrated garlic cloves, if you have to. Now you've got the garlic there for the rectal injection; and so everything you need for the cold sheet treatment, you can get right in the grocery store.


Drink as many cups of tea as you can get down, but the minimum is six.


If you get light-headed and feel like fainting, have your helper place a cold towel or washcloth on your forehead. Also, there are two herbal tinctures you must have on hand: cayenne tincture and lobelia tincture. Cayenne prevents people from fainting and lobelia stops-full body spasms that sometimes occur.


Have your helper squirt cayenne pepper tincture in your mouth if you feel like fainting. It will bring you out of it.


When you get to the point where you know you can't stand it a minute more, your helper should push you for about 5 more minutes. By then, you may be in tears. Most people are. Once you're out of the tub, your helper should wrap you up in a sheet that has been soaked in ice water. This is a sheet that has sat in 20 pounds of ice. It isn't cool. It has to be ice-cold. You won't even notice it. You'll be on another planet. Then your helper should put you to bed and proceed to the next step.


STEP FOUR: You should be wrapped in a double bed-size, clean, white cotton sheet (no synthetics) that has been soaking in ice water. The sides of the sheet are pinned so you cannot throw it off. The sheet will draw out the poisons that have come to your skin's surface as a result of the hot bath.


A bed is prepared by putting a plastic or rubber sheet over the mattress, then a cotton, wool, linen, or silk sheet (any material that breathes — no synthetics) is laid over that. You lie down while wrapped in the cold sheet, and another dry, non-synthetic sheet is put over you. Then you are covered with non-synthetic blankets.


STEP FIVE: Last, your feet are uncovered, the feet and ankles oiled with olive oil, and the garlic paste that you made with vinegar is applied to the bottoms of your feet to help get rid of any infections in the system. Use 2-inch gauze or torn, white cotton strips as a bandage to hold the garlic paste on the sole of the foot. White, cotton or wool socks are placed over the bandaged feet.


The feet are re-covered with the cold, wet sheet. The bottom of this sheet is pinned, so you will be in a wet sack. Then the dry sheets a blankets are pulled over your feet for warmth.


If you have to pee, just pee right where you are, and don't take the cold sheet off. The pee won't hurt anything, and it's not worth rewrapping the person in cold sheets and re-applying the garlic paste.


You are left in the sheets overnight, and by morning, the sheets have turned multi-colored from all the poisons they have drawn out of the body. Dr. Christopher said that sometimes the sheets turn all shades of purple, yellow, black and green. These are toxins that have been in the person for years — sometimes the person's whole life.


In the morning, you are sponged off with warm cider vinegar and distilled water (half and half) to get the remaining toxins out of the pores. Then you are put into clean clothes and sent to bed.


You should only be given fruit and vegetable juices, herbal teas, and lots of distilled water to drink and fruit to eat for one to three days to provide a total cleansing.


What you must know: From the man who has given more cold sheet treatments than any other human being in the world.


Let's listen in to my conversation with Richard Schulze about the cold sheet treatment, hot and cold showers, and the unused healing powers of hydrotherapy.


BISER: In the cold sheet treatment, what does the temperature get to?


SCHULZE: It can vary. I've had people who didn't gain any fever at all; I've had people who had their temperature lowered, and I've had numerous people who had fevers of 102-103 degrees.


BISER: But it never got out of control?


SCHULZE: Oh never! I've never seen a fever get out of control in or out of the cold sheet treatment as long as the person is drinking enough liquids. If you dry up, it is like a radiator in a car running dry. But if you just keep hydrated, there is no problem at all.


One patient with bone cancer had a continuous fever of 101-102 for two months at a time, and it was fairly debilitating.


BISER: Did he have to be in bed from it?


SCHULZE: No, he did things; he went out and golfed and things like that, but he felt he had no energy. It's how you feel when you have a fever, a bit delirious, a bit weak.


The cold sheet treatment can accelerate the speed of your white blood cells by up to 64 times.


BISER: Why did he have it?


SCHULZE: It's the body's way of responding to speed up the white blood cells, to stimulate the immunity and to make you eat the invaders, which can be infections or even cancer.


Most people don't realize it, but with the cold sheet treatment, we are using a principle of medicine called leuco-taxis. That is where the activity and motion of white blood cells increase in response to heat.


Here is how it works: For every degree of temperature, the speed at which your white blood cells travel is doubled. At a 104 degree fever, your white blood cells are moving 64 times faster than normal. They kill things faster, eat them faster, and travel faster.


So a fever of 103-104° means the white blood cells are going sixty-four times faster than normal. It just keeps doubling and doubling and doubling. Your normal temperature is supposed to be 98.6°F. We say 98.6°, but that was designed in the 1800's. And so it's going to be changed in the next couple of years to normal human temperature as a straight 98°.


So that means that 99 degrees would be 2 times faster than normal and 100 degrees would be 4 times faster than normal and 101 would be 8 times faster than normal and 102 would be 16 times faster and 103 degrees would be 32 times faster and 104 degrees would be 64 times faster. And so 105 degrees would be 128 times faster.


BISER: How is this different from hyperthermia treatments, in which they put you in a machine and heat you up?


SCHULZE: With the cold sheet treatment, the body is setting the temperature. That is different from some machine that doesn't know where it should be. What is great about the cold sheet treatment is that you are just aiding the body in doing what it wants to do anyway.


Using the cold sheet treatment for drug-resistant pneumonia.


BISER: What is the most cold sheet treatments you have done on a really-ill person?


SCHULZE: I would say twelve.


BISER: And how bad were they?


SCHULZE: They were dying of pneumonia. And so we just kept repeating the cold sheet treatment about every day...sometimes we left one day off in-between, sometimes two and just kept repeating it. And then with other people I did probably a dozen for a period of six months, like a couple a month.


BISER: How did you know they were dying from pneumonia?


SCHULZE: They had lung problems all their lives. They were, I'm going to say, early 70's, and they had numerous bouts with pneumonia and finally, they had serious bouts of pneumonia that they couldn't get rid of. The doctors had already used all their drugs.


BISER: So it was drug-resistant?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: That means there were no more drugs to use?


SCHULZE: That's right. Nobody could help. Of course, this is when numerous elderly people succumb and it's from pneumonia. It's a common cause of death in nursing homes.


BISER: What happened, noticeably, when you did the 12 cold sheets with that person?


SCHULZE: They got better each time. One or two just wasn't quite enough and this person was quite weak. So the first couple of treatments we did were kind of modified, and then once they were a little bit stronger, we went ahead and did the regular cold sheet program.


BISER: What came out of them?


SCHULZE: A lot of stuff out of their lungs. I've seen scabs, like blood scabs, come out of the lungs. Tons of mucus. It usually looks green, bright green, dark green, brown to black. I've seen black, lots of tar and black strands come out of the lungs. And scabs and blood.


BISER: What are those from?


SCHULZE: Blood clots, usually from bleeding lung tissue. The lungs get so irritated, and so inflamed, that blood vessels actually break. And, of course, the mucus is just the infection and the immune war that is going on in the lungs. It's a good sign and you just want to keep it flowing. Keep it coming.


BISER: Nobody would even know they could use the cold sheet treatment twelve different times.


SCHULZE: No. A lot of people think that all these things are a one-time deal. So to many people I work with, I say, “We ought to do this.” They go, “I've already done that.” And I think to myself, “Where is it written that you can't do it twice, or three times or four times?”


Usually, like the first time through a routine, you have some fear and anxiety. You are holding back a little bit. You don't use quite enough or you are afraid it's going to kill you.


A lot of times the first experience with a natural healing routine, whether it be lobelia or the cold sheet treatment, people don't relax and do it totally because there is fear there.


But once they have done it and they haven't died and they realize that they survived, then the second time they are relaxed a little more, and they go into it totally. By the third or fourth time, they are getting the maximum benefit from the cold sheet routine, or from any other new healing procedure.


When doing this treatment, you must protect your genitals with vaseline.


BISER: Any practical advice you want to give our readers on the cold beet treatment?


SCHULZE: Yes, don't just put a little vaseline on your genitals, put the hole darn jar on. This is one time you don't skimp. If you get that hot cayenne, ginger and mustard on your testicles, your penis, or your vagina, it will take the skin off.


I've had it happen to me. Just take gobs of vaseline in your hand and coat your entire private parts. For example, your anus, make sure you get it above and below your anus and all the way through and under or a woman, slop it all over the vagina.


BISER: Anything else before we move on?


SCHULZE: Yes. I don't think people are aware that the cold sheet treatment is not only physically intense — it can also cause emotional transformations, as if the person was undergoing an emotional cleansing along with the physical.


I remember how one young woman, after I put her in the cold sheets, started screaming at the top of her lungs, “Stop, you're killing me.” She remembered her mother beating her on the head when she a child. She always had this scar on her head, but she didn't know what it was from. During the cold sheet treatment, she remembered her mother beating her on the head with a vacuum cleaner. When she went back to her home town, her mother told her how severely she had beaten her daughter.


The cold sheet treatment brings out buried emotional trauma, this one woman said it was the cold sheet treatment that was the turning point in her life. I've even seen women go into false labor as they repeated some traumatic experience with the birth of their children.


I've had people with nervous disorders, like epilepsy, not have the nervous disorders after the treatment. It's a life-changing treatment, yet other herbalists are terrified to have me teach it to students.


It's messy and dirty and time-consuming and, what they're really afraid of is that someone might die. But I've done this hundreds and hundreds of time, and I've only cured people.

Whatever the herbalists are afraid of, the opposite is true: To me an adult or a child who does not do the cold sheet treatment has a much greater chance of dying.


The cold sheet treatment is like a 30-day fast in a half-hour.


BISER: It's obvious from our conversations that you are very much into hydrotherapy. It's not just something you do as a side show.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I think it's the most powerful treatment I can do to patients — often more powerful than herbs themselves.


I have been to the best hydrotherapy spas in the world — to Luxemburg, to France, to Belgium, to Malvern in England, and to Hot Springs, Arkansas right here in the United States. Hydrotherapy has been an obsession of mine.


I went to Hot Springs, and I was a bit fearful, because there were all elderly people on the porch and they were all hunched over and kind of drooling on the ground. I said, “Oh God, this is a sanitarium.” But a sign said: “The Original Bath Treatment”, so I went in.


The first thing they did to me was put me in a hot tub — a gigantic hot tub filled with this hot thermal water. And while I was in it, they made me drink about 8 cups of this same hot thermal water. So I was cooking from the inside and out. Fifteen minutes later, they stood me up and put me in a steam of this hot thermal water and steamed me. Then they stood me up in a room with about 20 shower jets, turned the valve and ice water hit me from every direction.


BISER: What was that like?


SCHULZE: I thought I was going to jump out of my skin, I thought it was gonna kill me. I thought I was going to have a heart attack, but nothing happened.


They took me out of the ice water, put me back in the hot tub, then into cold plunges, then they put me in a room that had radiators all over the wall, soaked me in the hot water and then put ice packs on different areas of my body to increase my circulation.


After 30 minutes of these therapies they put me in the wheelchair and wheeled me out onto the porch where I sat there hunched over, moaning, and I drooled on the floor.


And I could see my car parked across the street. For two hours I couldn't get out of that chair and get to my car. That's when I realized the power of hydrotherapy — of hot and cold water. This is what the old people knew. This is what they knew in Germany, in Europe and in the old nature clinics. They knew they could get a change in your body that you couldn't get with anything else — using just hot and cold water.


BISER: Did you feel better when it was all over?


SCHULZE: God, I felt like someone had taken all the muscles out of my body and put new muscles and joints in my body. I felt like I was born again. I felt like I was 15 years old. It was unbelievable.


When you keep this up repeatedly, it heals organs, and it will heal tissues.


The best way to increase blood flow throughout your body is that hot and cold water. In fact, they have shown tests where doing this detoxifies your blood. Just having that blood flushed! Because it's going through your liver more, it's going through your kidneys more, and then you are drinking that water and it's going through you.


After one of these rough sessions at a foreign hydrotherapy clinic, I thought my blood was going to come out through my skin. You know we don't do any of this.


But if we did, there would be powerful, powerful healings. But hydrotherapy is messy, it's not in vogue in this country. Nobody uses it. And it is one of the greatest healing tools I can say. In fact there are clinics that heal people of all sorts of diseases exclusively using hydrotherapy and that's all.


Ancient documents showed that all kinds of life-and-death disorders were cured by hot and cold water therapy—but, healers in the U.S. refuse to use it.


BISER: Not even using the rest of your program?


SCHULZE: That's right. Not even using the rest of my program. I think if I picked one therapy above all others, it would be hydrotherapy.


Benedict Lust was one of the greatest natural healers of the 1800's. He had a blood-washing method where you stayed in the shower for 8 hours while you took detoxing herbs. And he had dramatic healings. But today, I can't get someone to stay in the shower for 8 minutes in this country; and back then, it was 8 hours with waters of various temperatures pounding on you.


In England, the whole town of Malvern was built on hydro-therapy. They had a bucket that would be 30 feet in the air and the pressure of that water would come tumbling down and hit you right can the top of the head. They didn't have pressure hoses in those days, so they had to do that.


But they were famous for curing incurables. For example, they healed people with mental disorders; these patients couldn't even think straight. They also cured people with brain tumors — just by increasing blood flow with these water treatments.


BISER: And they cured cancer? Are you sure?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I know, because I've used these treatments to cure cancer in my own patients.


And then these old people gave hot herbal packs and things like that. I travelled to where they did this and got the old antique herbal books, and this is the kind of therapies they did.


BISER: But if you tell people about this, what do they say. “Those are fairy tales from the old days?”


SCHULZE: Either that it's fairy tales, or that it's a bit radical. But to these ancient people, death was radical. What's amazing is that when I started practicing, the only information I could get on this was in the ancient books, because there was nobody writing about it — even today. Healers like Christopher and Jensen talked about it, but they didn't get into it heavily in their writings. All of the good stuff came from the old days.


I'll tell you, in these clinics in Arkansas, they let me take a tour of the building that they didn't use anymore. Unbelievable. Granite and marble stands with valves which looked like fire hoses with nozzles on them. Up against the wall were things that you could hold onto. They would even strap you in because the pressure of the water was so strong. It would dent your skin. I let them turn it on for me and it was unbelievable and it dented my skin an inch and a half.


BISER: Did it rip it?


SCHULZE: No, but it dents it, it goes in your pores even. And it dents your skin, you're talking about a massage with hot and cold. I mean my spine felt like it hadn't felt in years. I was the only one down there for two days.


BISER: Today we think it's a quaint idea from the past, right?


SCHULZE: If you ask me what was the most powerful thing that helped my patients recover from their cancers, it was the hot and cold therapy.


You can't get blood to move in and out of different areas of the body with any therapy that even comes close to hydrotherapy's power.


The second closest thing for circulation would be cayenne pepper. It's the only herb I know that you can eat and it can make your face red with blood. Cayenne pepper and body work are good for blood flow. But body work and cayenne, as great as they are, are still a joke compared to hydrotherapy.


Practical advice on hot and cold showers.


BISER: How long do you recommend a person stay in hot and cold showers?


SCHULZE: When they are terminally ill, I will have them do it for forty-five minutes three times a day. These people who did this were dying. They were checking out. I had to do anything necessary to stop that.


These were cancer patients who didn't even have a month to live. You know, they had two organs missing and just needed to stimulate than blood in any way they could. We didn't have any time left.


BISER: When you said forty-five minutes three times a day, how long hot? How long cold?


SCHULZE: Oh, usually a couple of minutes cold and five minutes hot. and a couple of minutes cold and five minutes hot, and do about seven, repetitions of that. But that's exhausting and then they'd do it 3-4 times.


One of the things that helped me out a lot is reading these old documents and realizing that even if I went to the extreme. I wouldn't be reaching what was done a hundred years ago.


You know what I'm saying. As far out as I appear to my colleagues. I'm not even approaching the intensity of what the old healers knew they had to do.


That's kept me going when I was out there, going far beyond the-greatest patient nightmares of most modern-day natural healers and herbalists. I knew I still wasn't getting up to some of the basic levels of what was done 100-150 years ago. These old people had no choice. It didn't seem extreme because, to them, it was much more extreme to die. So nothing they did seemed extreme.


Chapter 5: Cleansing the Bowel


The colon is the cork in your bottle. If you don't cleanse it, the wastes from your head to your lowlands can't get out of you.


Unless you have worked in a clinic with dying patients, you just won't "get it" how many diseases come from bad colon function.


Later on in this chapter, I will give you the herbal formulas you need. But right now, I want to give you a case from the private files of Dr. Richard Schulze, and some other information he shared with me.


A 67-year-old man suffered from massive depression that cleared when they emptied the 'warehouse' in his colon.


SCHULZE: Emotionally, the man was dead. He was a retired teacher and a guidance counsellor in a public school. He had a normal life and was an intelligent man. Sixty-seven years old, and all of a sudden, they go in his room one day and his head was down.


He said, “I don't want to get up. I don't want to go to school. I don't want to get up or do anything.” They diagnosed him with clinical depression in January 1993. They took him to four different hospitals, they had him on three different drugs, Prozac, Valium and other similar Valium-like substances to keep him sane.


His relatives brought him here and he wouldn't come in the office. He sat on the couch in the living room with his head down and he goes “No.” He goes, “I just want to get out of here, I don't like this, there is going to be bad traffic.”


I made him take mouth drops. I said, “Has anybody ever told you that your breath stinks?” He didn't answer.


You know, his condition was like coming home and finding that your toilet is overflowed with poop. When it comes to their own bodies, do you know what people do? Instead of cleansing their colons and “calling the plumber or the Roto-Rooter man”, they burn incense and put Airwicks in. That's what they do.


The underarm deodorants, the mouthwashes, the toothpastes, the gels, the breath fresheners, the sprays, the colognes, the perfume business is gigantic. It's a billion-dollar industry to cover up their stink because they are rotten inside and they are filled with crap. And if they would just clean out their bowels, this industry would be gone. I could smell this man 10 feet away.


So I recommended two colon formulas you'll learn about in a moment. His family didn't contact me for the next month and a half, so not knowing any better, or wanting to help him, they went through an entire bag a day of the formula. That's ten days' supply in a day. They were going through more intestinal formulas than I think any patient ever did.


This was an incredible family. They gave their father liver cleanse every single day for 30-40 days. And they had him on the juices and everything. They kept pouring that colon formula into him to flush him out, and he was having 5 to 10 bowel movements a day.


When I found out, they said, “He's on the toilet all day long.” In fact, his psychotherapist called me and said, “I don't know what you're doing, but it might be to the extreme.” And I go, “Why?” And he says, “Because I can't even do a psychotherapy session with him anymore. He's going to the bathroom every 15 minutes.”


And I said, “You know, we could cut it back.” And he goes, “Oh no, he's healed.” He says, “We have no more valium, no more drugs, nothing.” They brought him back to my office and this guy was totally out of this depression, totally healed from just doing major bowel cleansing.


BISER: You didn't even do herbs for his depression?


SCHULZE: Nothing. I never even got to it. I was expecting to see him in 3 weeks, but here's the greatest part: His first visit to me was February, and he had already been a year-and-a-half chronically depressed and the doctors couldn't help him. And then the family put him on the herbs and programs I recommended. August 2nd, he came for his appointment himself. He walked in here a happy-go-lucky individual. He wanted more bowel cleanser. He'll never stop using it.


BISER: What came out of him?


SCHULZE: They just said it was unbelievable. He blocked the toilets, they had to crush it out.


He was full of poop. I could smell it. They said it was disgusting. In fact, the psychotherapist said he can't stand to have him come because he stinks up the whole office for hours.


BISER: And they had to crush it up?


SCHULZE: Oh yea. And they said it blocked the toilets. They said he used whole rolls of toilet paper, they said that it was a disaster, but this's another one of those stories that goes back to John Christopher and Bernard Jensen — you just don't know the power of getting that bowel cleaned out. I mean, this guy was impacted. We're talking about severe impaction.


BISER: And yet his stomach didn't protrude?


SCHULZE: Oh, not at all. He was a thin man. I finally sent him to a colonic therapist, and they said that after an hour's colonic, the built-up sh.. was still pouring out of him. They said they just had to stop and say, “Look, you're going to have to come back more times.” They said, “It was treatment after treatment and the stuff was pouring out of him.” Obviously, they didn't even know where it was coming from.


The bottom line is that in sixty days, that man was calling for his own appointments and driving for himself, and he would come to my office himself and say, “Hi, I'm so and so, and I'm here to see Richard Schulze.” Of course, we used the brain herbs with him later on, but he was cured pretty much from colon cleansing and liver cleansing and nothing else. When this guy first came to me, he hung his head between his knees, shaking it saying, “No”.


He just said “No, no,” I think one time, he said “We've got to get out of here,” and he was gone! It was three years ago when it started and he was diagnosed with “severe clinical depression”. Now eventually, they would have said it was Alzheimer's disease.


He was in retirement. He came out of retirement. His life has changed. He says he only has one fear left and I said, “What's that?” And he goes, “That I won't be able to get the herbal bowel cleansers. And that's his only fear in life. I said, “Don't worry.”


If you don't cleanse the colon, the other organs can't cleanse their wastes.


BISER: Any of the herbalists you know would have put him on a brain formula.


SCHULZE: They would have started him on it right away. But I could smell his breath. I knew where it was coming from. You can't treat symptoms. Most people do, and I have always called that, “Allopathic herbalism”. As Dr. Christopher said, “You have to get to the cause behind the cause.”


BISER: Everyone thinks it's a wellness thing, cleaning the colon. They don't really think it changes health.


SCHULZE: They don't think that it will affect them if they have a tumor, or if they have kidney infection, or if they have heart disease.


They don't understand that even if you can clean the plaque out of the arteries — if you can't get the bowels cleaned out also, it's going to go right back in the body. You'll just re-absorb it.


The body doesn't want to dump wastes unless it knows the colon is working. These bodily systems are connected. When your appendix is giving information to your bloodstream, that's picked up everywhere.


BISER: The body appears to know when the colon is blocked?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. But when you get that colon brand-spanking clean, it's unbelievable the catharsis that's going to take place. Your body will start pulling poisons out from everywhere. Because it knows it can.


Also, you have to remember that wastes from the colon, as we'll see in a moment, can overflow the colon and pollute other organs. You can treat those other organs with natural methods — with only partial results — because these organs keep getting re-infected or re-irritated by particles from the colon.


The Merck Manual says that all Americans — if they live long enough — will have herniation of the large intestine.


SCHULZE: I find that most medical books nowadays back up natural healing. I quote from The Merck Manual daily to my patients. This is from Merck, Sharp and Dome, the largest drug manufacturer in the United States.


According to the latest edition, Merck, 16th edition, I'm quoting, “Every person will have many.” That's many herniations. It's a hundred percent now. It says that if they live long enough, every American adult will have herniation of the large intestine. They say that it increases rapidly over age 40 and in every person.


Now Dr. Christopher said this 50 years ago! And they laughed at him. They ridiculed him. He said that the bowel has pockets in it. And that these pockets contain fecal matter. They laughed. They said this is the most ridiculous thing. They said, “We know the bowels don't have this.” And he goes, “The bowels have pockets, they contain fecal matter.” And then he went on to say that if it stays in there long enough, it will leak into your body and cause what he called auto-intoxication. Again, the doctors laughed. They swore at him. They ridiculed him.


I saw people who were natural healers go, “This is ridiculous”. They said, “We have looked in bowels and we don't see this. We don't see these sacs of poop.” I'll tell you why they missed them.




SCHULZE: Doctors used to always miss these because they are not inside the bowel, they are actually outside the bowel. So from inside the bowel, you can hardly see them, so when you go into the bowel with a scope, they look like little black dots. And that could just be a piece of fecal matter. They think that's only a small piece of fecal matter stuck on the wall of the bowel.


But behind that fecal matter is one of these bowel pockets.


How constipation causes appendicitis.


BISER: So, the pockets are outside!


SCHULZE: Yes. In 1991, they came out with this, their newest chart, diseases of the digestive system, and it shows right here diverticulosis of the colon, and how the external herniations are filled with poop.


But what's even better is over here in the book; fecal obstructions are causing appendicitis. They are now saying that appendicitis is caused by fecal matter stuffed down into the opening which doesn't let the appendix release its fluid, and so it inflames. So this isn't some faulty organ, this is constipation causing appendicitis.


BISER: Do any natural healers keep up on these things?


SCHULZE: No. Nobody reads this. The Merck Manual is the Bible of diagnosis and treatment for the medical profession in the United States. Medical doctors don't even read these. I buy every edition and read from front to back. It gets better as the years go along.


They basically say that diverticuli occasionally are responsible for rectal bleeding and they often become inflamed causing diverticulosis. It says they are asymptomatic, so people don't know they have them, and…here's the best part, what do you do?


“Treatment: a bland diet is not indicated for persons with diverticulosis. For normal colonic functions, the diet should include a sufficient intake of fluids and roughage from whole wheat bread, bran cereal, fruits and vegetables.”


This is what Dr. Christopher said, “If you get constipated, then you will get bowel pockets, and the best way to get rid of them is a mucusless diet, whole grains, bran, fruits and vegetables.” They are just quoting Dr. Christopher right in the modern medical books. Isn't that incredible!


And then it goes on to discuss diverticulosis, the inflammation of the diverticuli, of those sacs protruding from the colon wall. It says that small, even minute, perforations of the thin-walled diverticuli due to inflammation or high colon pressure from constipation leads to —guess what — bacterial and fecal contamination of the inner tissues.


BISER: Inner tissues?! There you've got it seeping out and that is in The Merck Manual. What edition? Page what?


SCHULZE: This one here is page 813 and 814 of the 15th edition of The Merck Manual. They only publish them every 5 years. This was the 1987 version. And here we have something that Dr. Christopher claimed for years and every medical doctor I have met said it was ridiculous. Now, this is in the 1992 Merck Manual. Most people can buy these in Crown Books. But I was shocked, and I have to say my jaw dropped when I saw his next one:


“Diverticuli, acquired sac-like mucosal projections through the muscular layer of the colon/rectum. Occur anywhere in the large bowel, but usually in the sigmoid and rarely below the rectum. Vary in diameter, most diverticuli are multiple, they are uncommon in persons younger than forty but increase rapidly then after that, so that essentially every person will have many.”


That's the bottom line. Essentially every person, so forget the 10%, the 20%, the 15%, the 30% that they quoted in earlier editions, essentially every person will have many. That's the bottom line.


According to The Merck Manual, these bowel pockets leak pus, blood, and fecal matter back into the bloodstream.


BISER: That means people are full of pockets.


SCHULZE: Sure. Full of bowel pockets, that's right. Patients will say to me, “I had a couple of bowel movements today 'every day'. Do I really need to clean my bowels.” According to The Merck Manual, every person will essentially have many herniations — and there are no symptoms. So just because you're regular doesn't mean you don't have these little sacks of poop bulging on the outside of your colon walls.


BISER: And inside of those protruding sacks can be inflammation, which means pus.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. When that fecal matter comes out of there, and Dr. Christopher used to say it too, it's not just going to be clean, healthy tissue. There is going to be worms under there, there is going to be pus under there, it's going to bleed.


That's why even in his colon formula, he put cayenne for the bleeding, goldenseal for the pus and for the infection. He designed it because he knew that these infected sacs were there.


Now the question I've always had is: How did he know these were there? How did he know that everybody had them in their bowel because, according to medicine, they didn't know that until 1992. That was nine years after his death.


“Leg ulcers never heal until you cleanse the colon. The body creates them as a second rectum which leaks wastes out of a clogged-up body.”


SCHULZE: We've had people with leg ulcers where you couldn't stop the leg ulcer, it was just pouring. Blood and pus. They couldn't stop it. They wrapped bandages around it and it would leak through the bandage.


I learned with leg ulcers that they are like a second rectum. When your body can't get elimination out through the normal channel, it will burst it through anywhere. It's impossible to heal a leg ulcer treating the leg ulcer. I learned that. You cannot get a leg ulcer better when your body is dumping poison it can't get out.


BISER: Older people can even die of these ulcers.


SCHULZE: The only way to treat a leg ulcer is to clean the bowel. Cleanse the bowel and then you treat the leg ulcer and it goes away. But with a constipated bowel or a congested bowel, you try to treat the leg ulcer and it will never heal.


Tumors can be the body's way of trying to dispose of wastes. Sometimes these external cancer tumors have little holes in the end, where they leak pus and blood. Sometimes the skin turns redder and darker in color, and then splits open. It did on this one woman.


This lady had a tumor on her neck. She had a band-aid on it, and a cloth around her neck, and she would have to keeping changing the tissue, it was leaking so much. I said to her, “What do you mean, it's leaking?”


She goes, “Look.” And she took the band-aid off and it was like a stream of water. This water was pouring out of her neck, it was murky, stinking water. And you know, this is classic. Dr. Christopher said that your body will get out wastes any way it can if the channels of elimination are not kept open.


Richard Schulze's two formulas for cleansing and detoxifying the colon.


The first bowel formula causes the colon to move — even if the nerves to the colon are damaged or non-existent. You can make this formula at home, or purchase, but as I will tell you over and over again, I urge you to learn how to make your formulas at home.


Here is the first formula: Dosage information is on page


2 parts Curacao and Cape Aloe Leaf. [If not available, use one part Buckthorn bark or two parts Turkey Rhubarb.]

One part Senna leaves and pods. [Start with one-half part.]

One part Cascara Sagrada aged bark. [Start with one-half part.]

1 part Barberry root bark

1 part Ginger root, or Peppermint leaf, or Fennel

1 part Garlic bulb, or Goldenseal root

1 part African bird pepper, or the hottest cayenne or black pepper you can find.


Don't be afraid to make this or other formulas, even if you are missing an ingredient or two or three, or if you have to substitute ingredients. Over time, this formula strengthens the walls of the small intestine. It destroys Candida overgrowth, and destroys and expels parasites, and relieves gas and cramps.


The second bowel formula is to be used in conjunction with the first colon formula. This formula is a strong purifier and intestine vacuum.


Here are the ingredients: Dosage information is on page


2 parts Flax seed

2 parts Apple Fruit pectin [Optional, but available only in large quantities from wholesale suppliers. Difficult for layman to get. Minimum quantities are 50 lbs.]

2 parts Pharmaceutical Grade Bentonite Clay [Aztec Clay, available from Aztec Secret Health and Beauty. RO. Box 841, Pahrump, NV 89041. Their phone is (702) 727-1882.]

7 parts Psyllium seeds and husks

2 parts Slippery elm inner bark or Marshmallow root

1 part Fennel seed or Peppermint

1 part Activated Willow charcoal [This can be obtained from Charles Wilson, (704) 622-3671, RO. Box 693, Leicester, North Carolina 28748.]


This formula will draw old fecal matter off the walls of your colon and out of any bowel pockets. It will also draw out poisons, toxins, heavy metals such as mercury and lead and even remove radioactive materials such as strontium-90. This formula will also remove over 2,000 knows chemicals and pharmaceutical drug residues. Its natural softening and soothing properties will soften old hardened fecal matter for easy removal and soothe inflammation in the stomach and intestines.


Special instructions: This formula can sometimes be constipating. Therefore, all you have to do is to increase the dosage of formula number one to compensate.


Reserve special days for cleansing your colon.


SCHULZE: Once in awhile, like maybe once every couple of weeks, reserve a day or two for colon cleansing.


Maybe four times or more, have a day where you don't eat any food at all, or if you do eat, eat incredibly lightly and try to stick with fruit. And on that day drink a gallon of liquids; water, herb teas, fruit and vegetable juices.


On that day, it will be easy for you to stir around a teaspoon of the intestinal formula number two into those juices or liquids five or six times a day.


How to do a high enema.


BISER: These were required every other day for those on the incurables program, and obviously less often for those who are not so ill. Richard, what do readers need to know to do this right?


SCHULZE: A high enema is designed to wash and clean out and empty the entire colon, the large intestine. By comparison, a regular enema only washes fecal matter out of the area near your rectum.


In fact, if you are patient enough and persistent enough with a high enema, you will introduce so much water into your bowel that it will go all the way to your appendix. Of course, that's at the lowest part of your cecum, the beginning of the colon, all the way to the illeo-cecal valve which is where the small intestine ends.


BISER: Can readers do this at home?


SCHULZE: You can do this at home and it's easy. The first time you have to be a little patient. The way you begin is you just take a regular enema.


You introduce 8-16 ounces of water into your rectum, and usually most people will feel like, “Oh, gotta get this out of here now.” So you hop to the toilet.


You're introducing the water or herbal tea while you are lying on your back on the floor. I always say it's best to have an enema party; it's much easier if you have two people, one person giving the enema and one person receiving.


Otherwise, you've got to work and move and strain and all of that. On your bathroom floor, put a couple of old towels, because chances are you are going to get a little water on the floor, but possibly a little bit of fecal matter, a little bit of herbal ointment or different things.


BISER: I always thought it was better to do a quick little insertion of a little water, and get out whatever is there.


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely.


BISER: Otherwise when you try to put the big one in you, you won't hold it at all.


SCHULZE: That's right. You have to take at least a two or three just-rectal enemas. Make sure you are lying on the towels, make it nice and comfortable, put a little heater in the bathroom, get it warmed up.


BISER: Play some enema music?


SCHULZE: Yes, play some nice enema music, spray some essential oils or light some incense, because this is going to smell a bit, because you have old fecal matter coming out. So make it a nice experience. Lie on the floor, make sure you put on some herbal ointment, grease up your rectum really good. This is one of the few times you may want to use some vaseline — because you are better over-greased than under-greased. Fill the enema bag with nice warm water, body temperature or a little bit less.


If you want, you can add some catnip to that if you are prone to having your bowel be a little spastic. Lie back and have the person introduce just a little water, you'll usually feel an initial cramp, get up onto the toilet, let that fecal matter out of the bowel. And do that again.


You can do a rectal flush like that two or three times. After awhile, water comes out.


Now, you want to start introducing water into the colon itself and it's very simple. The first thing you want to do is just lie on your left side. Lie on your left side, and have the person put the enema in. Now you want to refill the enema bag, and have at least a couple of quarts of water if you can get it in the enema bag. You can have some filtered herb tea in there, too. Lie on your left side and have the person unclip the enema hose so the water starts flowing.


You'll feel it go into the rectum; breathe. You need to breathe. Take some deep breaths, relax. You might feel a little cramping. If you do say, “Stop.” Your helper will shut off the flow of the enema bag. Let them keep that off for awhile until the cramping subsides.


BISER: You're on your left side.


SCHULZE: You're on your left side, and you'll begin to feel the water, especially if you use a little bit cooler water, you'll begin to feel it on your left side. It's entering your sigmoid and descending colon. Again, if you feel a little cramp, or, like, "Oh, I can't hold this", tell them to stop the water and just relax and breathe, but try to get as much water in as possible.


BISER: What's the trick to not dumping the water as fast as it goes in, and all the water goes and you never get anything accomplished.


SCHULZE: You may have to do that. But remember, you're going to take about an hour to do this procedure of a high enema.


There's no hurry to get up. You'll empty your rectum, but you'll also have some emptying out of your descending or sigmoid colon. Lie back, use a little more bland herbal ointment or vaseline, fill the enema bag again, and then lie down on your left side. This time, you'll probably find the second or third time you'll get a lot of water in. You'll probably drain that enema bag.


You'll feel the water on your left side, and you'll think it's gone all the way up under your left rib, which is called your splenic flecture, because it's the bend right near your spleen. Roll over and lie on your back now.


It helps if you can put an old pillow under your butt. It will elevate your butt a little bit. Get on a little slant, and now you'll start to feel the water enter your transverse colon and go from left to right, going backwards through the colon, the opposite way the fecal matter goes.


Now you'll feel that water, and when you feel it go all the way above your navel at the base of your rib cage through your transverse colon, you may feel as though you have a belly or lower abdomen full of water; it will feel a little heavy — great! Now move over onto your right side.


As you move, you might have to have a water change at this point. Have the person pull the enema out. You know, in Europe, they have enema bags that have open tops, and so you can keep adding water as this is going in. But in this country, we have these sealed enema bags, so you have to stop, pull out the enema, fill the enema bag again and then restart. Now we are filling up the right side; you'll feel that water especially if it's a little cool, going down the ascending colon all the way down to that cecum and appendix, which is down half-way between your navel and your hip bone.


If you drew a line between your navel and what's called the ileac crest of your pelvis, that's about where your cecum is. You'll feel it all the way there. When you've had enough, stop. Say: “I'm full of water,” and lie there. Maybe even get up into a higher slant where your butt's even higher, if you've got support under you.


BISER: That will help you hold it?


SCHULZE: Well, it will help just get the water around more.


You know, if you've done yoga, maybe try even a little bit of a yoga shoulder stand or a modified one, or if not, maybe put your feet up against the wall and let your feet climb up a bit. Try to get upside down a little bit. Lie there and relax.


Try to be there for at least 5 minutes, if not 10 or 15 minutes, and then get up on the toilet. Just relax. You may find that, at first, nothing comes out. Then, as you relax more, you'll have water come out and you'll think, “Was that it?”


Relax a bit more, and you'll have a real flush of water. You'll get a tremendous amount of water and a lot more fecal matter now. Now what you can do when you finish that, if you are up to it, is start again.


You won't have to do any more rectal flushes; your body will accept a high enema immediately the first time. So do it again. You'll find that you can do two or three of these before the water starts looking somewhat clear.


If you're lucky, you'll get what's called a cecal flush, which means you're sitting on the toilet and, all of a sudden, you'll feel a cramp in your bowel. The whole bowel contracts at once; you have what's called a cecal flush, meaning, at once, all the water from your cecum all the way through your bowel is out of you. On the way into the toilet, it will feel very hot and very warm and you’ll feel a peristaltic wave from your right side to your left side. It’s tremendous. Now you know you've done some deep cleansing. In the Colonic industry that's called the cecal flush, and you can get it at home with a high enema.


BISER: In other words, you don’t need the hundred gallons of water or whatever you get in a colonic.


SCHULZE: No, not at all. A colonic is about 20 high enemas in an hour, because they can put it in fast; they can operate faster than you can at home with an enema bag. That's all it is. It's the same thing.


When you're a little more advanced in this, you can have your friend do a little abdominal rocking, putting their hand on your abdomen while you are on your back, and rocking you a little bit. That relaxes you sometimes.


If you are more advanced, you can even have them do a light massage on your abdomen. What be more beneficial is if they do a little foot reflexology on the colon points, or a little bit of a neck rub. Anything to help you relax. Any type of body work works well. At the end, when you're done, if you want, you can empty out all the water and you can introduce what's called an implant. This could be aloe vera to soothe the tissue of the bowel if there is colitis.


How to use an herbal implant after your high enema.


BISER: Or if you have cancer could it be red clover?


SCHULZE: Red clover, chaparral, and the most famous is wheat grass juice. You can take two, three, four ounces of wheat grass juice. You can take plantain juice, if you can find plantain growing around your area. You can use any herbs that you want for whatever you want to do.


Introduce them into the bowel, but in a small amount. We're talking about 16 ounces.


BISER: Because you don't want to dump it?


SCHULZE: That's right. You don't want to let it out. And then just leave it in there. Just relax and leave it in, and you'll find it a little absorbed. Your colon absorbs massive amounts of water, okay, that's one of the jobs of the colon. It absorbs liquid. If you're putting red clover, chaparral, wheat grass juice, aloe vera in your bowel, it will absorb it and take it right into the bowel tissue.


BISER: What about the criticism that by doing all this high enema, you are washing all the mineral nutrients out of your colon?


SCHULZE: You can resupply your body with a little bit of sea vegetable, an almond, a couple of Brazil nuts, the amount of minerals that you are taking out are not significant, plus we're not talking about doing this every day of your life. We're talking about every other day until you get well, and then at much greater intervals for those who are not as sick.


Why Dr. Schulze is against coffee enemas.


BISER: Some of these people do coffee enemas twice a day.


SCHULZE: They do it forever.


BISER: You are not in favor of that?


SCHULZE: No, not at all. Sure, coffee will stimulate the bowel to excrete more, but I would use coffee enemas as an extreme because, when you do a coffee enema, you get a high from the caffeine because your colon absorbs that coffee.


I know this because I've done them, and I've had patients do them, and they are absorbing tremendous amounts of caffeine. For the average person this might be okay, but for a heart patient, it's going to cause cardiac arrhythmia, tachycardia, flutters of the heart. In these bases, caffeine is contra-indicated — the same way I am against using salt as a bowel flush. Because large amounts of salt, if you are hypertensive, can give you a stroke.


I don't like to use things that can cause problems in other ways. So, I would suggest to use your detoxification herbs. Like we mentioned, your chaparral, your yellow dock works very nicely; a good cleansing herb is wheat grass juice.


You can't get a better detoxification than wheat grass juice. I'd rather have that than coffee every day because it's loaded with chlorophyll. I find that most people who do coffee enemas are enema-addicts. They do two coffee enemas a day for the rest of their lives.


BISER: You mean they have to do it.


SCHULZE: Yes, and then without it, their bowel doesn't work at all. This is typical of my clinic: A person comes in. I go, “How does your bowel work?” They go, “Hey, I have no problem with my bowel. I have two, three bowel movements every day. I go great.”


“Do you drink coffee? Do you drink tea?”


 “Yea. I drink about four cups a day.”


But if they stop the coffee, that bowel never works again. Okay, coffee is a great bowel stimulant. Most of America thinks their bowel is working normal. If there was a coffee shortage in this country, we'd have constipation so bad, we'd need nuclear weapons to clear America. I mean, you know, it's a false sense of the body working.


Catnip and lobelia for high enemas.


SCHULZE: Some people have spastic bowels. You put a little water in and you can never really get the high enema going because it's cramping; and it's always coming out. The way we always solve that is with lobelia-Add a little lobelia tincture to the water. You can even make it with catnip, which Dr. Christopher did.


Always have cayenne and lobelia on hand when doing enemas.


SCHULZE: Cayenne is used if the person is feeling faint, or if they are going to pass out, or if they are getting shaky and you want to get them stimulated, and if more blood to the head will bring them back to earth. Lobelia is useful if they are going into some type of a spasm. Maybe the bowel is spasming, or their hands are going into tetany, and it works the other way; it kind of slows things down a little bit.


The high enema is something that everybody should do.


BISER: If you are on the incurable program, do you really have to do the high enema that much?


SCHULZE: Absolutely, and an important thing to remember is also when you're juice fasting, you'll have a tendency for your bowel not to work. And that's part of the incurables program.


So if your bowel doesn't work, the intestinal formula number one and number two will almost guarantee you a bowel movement. That's what you use when you're juice fasting. Also take an enema when you're juice fasting, to make sure that bowel is staying nice and clean, and that you're getting it out as fast as possible.


Parasites get removed from high enemas.


BISER: Ever seen lots of stuff come out?


SCHULZE: Unbelievable. Everything. I saw one patient dump a whole toilet bowl full of parasites, full of worms. She never, ever had any complaints, never had any problems, never thought she had worms.


BISER: You saw the worms?


SCHULZE: Oh, I saw the worms. A whole bowl full of worms.


BISER: Now this was the first high enema?


SCHULZE: The first high enema. Dumped a whole bowlful of worms.


BISER: Has it ever happened that you do a series of them and nothing happens — and then later you dump worms?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: Just because you didn't get worms the first time doesn't mean there's no worms?


SCHULZE: Oh no, not at all. Anybody who has had long-term constipation will just clean out what was in the bowel on the first high enema. They won't get the crusts, or the pockets or the diverticula, the old stuff, the ham sandwich you overate on Thanksgiving when you were 14 years old.


BISER: How long does it take you to expel worms?


SCHULZE: Two, three weeks later, after doing five, six, eight high enemas. You can get worms then.


BISER: Are there any herbs that would encourage the worms to go?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. You could be using what are sometimes called vermifuge herbs, sometimes they are called vermicides. A vermifuge flushes the worms out; a vermicide kills the worms. One of the greatest, greatest vermifuges and vermicides, and people are going to think I'm a garlic nut, is garlic. There are more exotic herbs you can use, but garlic is wonderful. And of course the bitters; wormwood, worm seed, which is famous for cleaning worms out of the bowel.


BISER: You could use that in the high enema?

SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. You could use wormwood in the high enema, but just be easy with the amounts because, remember, when you put it in your bowel, it's just like drinking it.


BISER: What kind of amounts?


SCHULZE: You would want to make a very mild wormwood tea. You could put a teaspoonful of wormwood leaves to a couple of quarts of water. That will do it. And you know, just remember one thing, garlic kills the worms and flushes them out of the bowel. No self-respecting worm wants to live near garlic. Don't put herbs in the enema bag, because they will clog the nozzle. Only use filtered herbal tea.


BISER: I can see natural healers who have their pet herb all saying that garlic couldn't kill those worms. They’ll say, “You've got to use some special herbs from South America.” or something like that.


SCHULZE: If you have one herb and one herb only in your house, make it garlic. It will save your life.


BISER: Last question on this, what else have you seen come out besides-worms?


SCHULZE: I have seen actual fecal matter encasements come out. It's not as common as people would like to think.


We have diverticulosis, but not necessarily casings of fecal matter.


In certain cases of chronic constipation for years, I have seen this: casing breakup and come out. I have seen quarts of mucus come out of the bowel. Long, stringy mucus that looks like cheese. I've seen blood come out of the bowel, fresh blood.


BISER: Was that from damage done during the enema?


SCHULZE: No, no, no. Absolutely not. A diverticulosis is like a bubble on the side of your colon. Fecal matter, due to constipation, pushes against the wall of that colon, and makes that bubble or that herniation.


Of course, that bubble is impacted with fecal matter. Now, when you clean that fecal matter out of there, it's not just nice, beautiful, clean, sweet, pink tissue. It's infected, pus-filled, irritated, possibly even carcinogenic, tissue in there.


That's going to have pus, that's going to have bleeding and, of course, that's the importance of doing the first intestinal formula; it has cayenne in it to stop the bleeding. The formula also has garlic in it for the infection that may be there. That's where the power of using herbs comes in with a high enema. My patients have also seen balls in the toilet — gallstones that were flushed out during the high enema.


Enemas to breakup fevers.


BISER: I remember that earlier in my life, I used an enema to stop a fever that could have killed my wife. It was the only thing that brought the fever down.

SCHULZE: Enemas can bring in cooling water, and they can also remove the wastes that are making the fever worse.


I remember when I used an enema of Bentonite clay on a patient who had massive inflammation in his bowel. The doctors wanted to do a resection of his bowel. They said there was something lodged in the colon and they couldn't get to it. The tissue was ruptured and it was leaking into the patient's abdominal wall. We put Bentonite clay in and it sucked the poisons and obstructions right out. They checked the man and said, “Whatever it was is gone now.”


BISER: What do you mean, you put clay in?


SCHULZE: Bentonite clay. We filled his bowel with large doses of Bentonite clay and water. Bentonite clay draws forty times its weight in fecal matter. It will suck the fecal matter out of the bowel pocket, out of a diverticula. It's been used for a hundred years in this country to do that, all the way back as far as I know. People have used liquid Bentonite to suck the bowel clean and it does it really well.


BISER: After you put that in, the enema was for how long — an hour or two?


SCHULZE: We kept it in for about a half an hour, and then once we expel it, it doesn't matter. It's all in there, and it's all dry.


BISER: Did you mix water with it or just straight Bentonite liquid?


SCHULZE: Bentonite and water. Use aloe vera too. When you have colitis and diverticulosis, you fill the whole bowel with aloe vera juice or aloe vera gel. It reduces inflammation.


The bottom line is: everyone is dying from rotten bowels.


SCHULZE: I just fired a teacher for telling my herbal students that cascara sagrada could irritate the colon and they had to be careful with it.


I find that absolutely irresponsible. What I said to him was, “Look, 100% of American adults, if they live long enough, have herniation of the bowel, and the #1 cancer among men and women together is colon/rectal cancer.”


The bottom line is that everybody is dying from rotten bowels. And I never heard of anybody, not one person, dying from cascara sagrada. The American Indians used to call it 'sacred bark’. They used it for everything.


It's this kind of irresponsible herbalism that comes out of the textbooks that just irritates me to no end. What good is that kind of information doing anybody? It's scaring them from using herbs. And all these herbs are going to do is save their lives.


Three-pound tumor coming out of the bowel.


SCHULZE: This case of the three-pound tumor leaving is a classic case of what the colon-cleansing herbs can do. These herbs are powerful, but they've been degenerated by the modern herbalists in the way that they've been described.


In other words, the old herbalists knew the power of these herbs was dramatic, but this has been whittled down by the herbalists of today with their talk about isolating one or more active ingredients. They've lose the big picture of what the entire herb can do — or else they just don't want to know.


The herbs I talk about for the bowel, like the aloes or cascara sagrada or senna, these are emodin-containing herbs. The chemical emodin is a bitter principle that stimulates the liver and aloe stimulates the bowel to work better.


Years ago, that was also considered an herb that removes cancer from the body, but people don't talk about that anymore and for a lot of reasons.


I mean, Dr. Christopher, after his last arrest, wasn't allowed to use the word cancer. That was one of the things he'd agreed to, and he just couldn't help himself. But he basically got himself into trouble so many times because he said this herb is for cancer, so it's all been dropped.


But the bottom line is just the chemicals that are in those bitters, aloe, cascara sagrada and senna, used to be known as not only increasing the peristaltic action of your colon, they were also known to get rid of colon cancer.


But no-one dares say that anymore. No-one dares say the big cancer word when it comes to herbs or juices or natural healing. No-one dares say that wheatgrass juice absolutely cures cancer, yet I've seen it do it a thousand times.


But just because no-one says it, the tumors are still dropping out of people. When I was over in England, I got a report of a three-pounder coming out. Yes, just coming out with the bowel movement.


It was a colon cancer, and the herbs I recommended to your readers earlier made it happen. It was like a deflated orange.


BISER: You mean it was that small? How could it be three pounds and just be like a deflated orange? An orange doesn't weigh that much.


SCHULZE: Tumors are very dense, like, I'd like to say they're like a side of beef. It's something that has grown in a concentrated form for years and years and so they can be the densest of the tissue. It's almost like solid leather.


You won't read about this in a book, because no-one will say anymore, but these herbs do that. And if you talk a pharmacist into a corner, he'll say, “Well, yes.” Because the National Cancer Institute has even done studies that emodin does destroy certain types of tumors. But no-one will dare talk about this. If your life depends on it, you can't get a handful of information about degenerative diseases out of herbal books or even out of herbalists any more. They don't deal with it, they don't know anything about it, they won't touch it.


BISER: We should call this Collection “Raiders of the Lost Art.”


Instructions for Bowel Formula Number One


Dosage: Take one capsule a day. If that gives you the bowel results you want, stop, this is your dosage. If it is not enough, increase by one capsule. Continue increasing the dosage by one capsule until you go to the bathroom in the morning and go “Wow.”


Instructions for Bowel Formula Number Two


Dosage: Mix one heaping teaspoon of powder with four to six ounces of fresh juice. After consuming this, drink an additional eight to sixteen ounces of water. Repeat this five times per day, or increase the servings and take a smaller number of dosages. Please note that this formula can be slightly constipating, so you may need to increase the dosage of formula number one.


Chapter 6: Cleansing the Liver


There are three methods of liver cleansing you will be using.


The first is the mild liver flush. The second is the strong liver/gallbladder flush. The third is the liver/gallbladder tincture. In the incurables program, you will be using all three.


1) The mild liver flush.


The mild liver flush is done daily. You can do this for one week, then do the kidney flush for the next week, then go back.


Some people, like the man who eliminated dementia with colon cleansing, did the liver flush daily for over 40 days without a break.


To do the mild liver flush, do it on an empty stomach upon arising. The proportions are for one person. Use 8 ounces of citrus juices. Fresh is best. Squeeze those oranges; toss a lemon in if you are brave.


If citrus is too drying to your skin, use organically grown apple juice with all the sediment left in.


Add 8 ounces of distilled water, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a chunk of ginger. The piece of ginger can be the size of the end of your thumb. Don't cut the garlic first. Just smash the garlic on the counter to get the outer skin off, then, put everything in a blender, liquefy, and drink.


As you can tolerate it, increase the olive oil to 4 tablespoons. Increase the garlic to four large cloves, and increase the size of the piece of ginger in proportion to combat any possible nausea from the garlic.


I have found that it sometimes helps to chase down the flush with a few ounces of fresh-squeezed orange or apple juice you have saved as a chaser — as a reward to yourself, and to cleanse your mouth of the garlic taste after drinking the flush.


Fifteen minutes after the liver flush, you cleanse your system by drinking two cups of the following tea.


The ingredients of this detoxification tea are:


2 parts roasted Dandelion root

1 part Cinnamon bark

1 part Cardamon seed

1 part Licorice root

1 part Juniper berries

1 part Ginger root

1 part Clove buds

1 part black peppercorns

1 part Uva Ursi leaves


If you are missing ingredients, do the best you can. It will still be better than not using the tea.


This is the complete procedure for the mild liver flush. In a moment, I'll give you the formula for the full-strength liver/gallbladder flush. First, the case history of a woman who used the mild flush.


Gallstones were stuck in her bile duct. The liver flush blew them out.


SCHULZE: I had a woman come to me crying in severe pain. She just got out of the hospital. Doctors told her, “You have gallstones, severe gall-stones in your gall bladder, stuck in the bile duct, and we are going: to have to do surgery now.”


She left the hospital and came here and I just started her on the-mild flush we just talked about. We used probably 2-3 cloves of garlic and 2-3 spoons of oil at-a-time. She did one that night, and did another one in the morning, and never had a pain since. She continued it for about a week and a half, and went back, and they said her gall bladder was clean.


As you can see, do not underestimate the power of the mild liver gallbladder flush.


2) The full-strength liver/gallbladder flush.


You should do this once or twice a week if you are ill. In severe cases, it may have to be done several days in a row. On the other days, do the mild liver flush that goes up to four tablespoons of oil. See the section on liver cancer in this manual for a case in which the large flush was done repeatedly, and learn what happened.


The formula is:


8 ounces of olive oil

8 ounces of fresh-squeezed orange juice


Mix in a blender. You consume 4 ounces an hour of this mixture for four hours starting at about six o'clock at night until ten, or about an ounce every fifteen minutes. Here are some comments from Dr. Schulze...


SCHULZE: Always have a ginger in your hand; fresh ginger root that you can chew on when you feel any waves of nausea coming. I have students who want to do it more powerfully and have actually done a quart of the same mixture. Sixteen ounces of oil and sixteen ounces of citrus, and kept that down and did just fine.


Normally, the gallstones that you get out are, oh, we'll say anywhere from the small where you can hardly see them, like sand, all the way to, oh, we'll say, garbanzo bean size. This person who did the double-strength had some come out that were more like from your thumb knuckle to the tip of your thumb.


When you've got a liver that's quadruple normal size and you're dying, this can be your liver flush instead of the small daily version. The only downside I've ever seen to it is, of course, it makes you feel quite sluggish because you're consuming a lot of oil that your body has to process.


It might give you a little bit of diarrhea, and the worst thing, of course, is you'll throw up. There's really no downside to it. It really is a tremendous feeling for most people once they take the pressure off that gall bladder and get it flushed out.


BISER: Now Richard, what's the most that you've done it, like three,. four days in a row?


SCHULZE: I think I'm going to say five.


Don't underplay what we might call the mild liver flush, or the liver-gall bladder flush, or whatever we w7ant to call it, because I've seen that work miracles, too. But a lot of times I let it be dependent on the strength of the person.


You get these people who, you know, my God, you can do anything to them. For example, I have students who sat down and drank, in one sitting, sixteen ounces of oil and sixteen ounces of fresh citrus juice, smacked their lips and said “What's next?” You know when I get-students like that, hey, I push it to the limit.


I would say for your average person, the 16 oz. mixture is fine. My experience is (because I do it a lot with groups of say, thirty to forty and, oh gosh, I'm going to say out of a group of thirty-five, we usually get eight or ten people who throw up. So what?


3) The liver/gallbladder herbal tonic.


Every day on the incurables program, you take the following formula. This is a tincture you can make at home, or purchase.


Here is the formula:


3 parts milk thistle seed

1 part dandelion root

1 part Oregon grape root   [or barberry rootbark. or wormwood leaf]

1 part artichoke leaf [or beet leaf, or chicory, or any bitter green]

1 part ginger root [or fennel seed]


For instructions on making tinctures, please see chapter nine.


The dosage would be two full dropperfuls three times a day all the way up to twelve dropperfuls a day in a severe case. As I said in the Incurables Chapter, you may want to use this as a base and add extra chaparral or wormwood, or barberry, or any other super-strong liver cleansing herb if you need an additional effect. Use your intuition.


Some people may have to back-off after four or five days of heavy liver cleansing to give it a rest, and then resume a day or two later. Other people may have to continue daily because of their condition.


One leading naturopathic doctor says the liver flush is dangerous. He is crazy and ignorant. Here's why...


Let me quote you what an ignorant natural healer is scaring people with, and then I will give you Richard Schulze's comments. Here is the doctor's first statement...


“Many people tell tales of passing huge stones while on the liver flush. However, what they think are gallstones are actually a complex of minerals, olive oil and lemon juice produced within the gastro-intestinal tract.”


SCHULZE: This is true — but only part of it. When you do a flush, you will see these stones that are clear to translucent-like green. These are soft and spongy. These are just congealed olive oil that you consumed.


But what about the black ones? What about the red ones that have blood in them? What about the ones that are an inch and a half long and have a brown, hard crusty outside, and when we broke them open, they were black and purple inside. That's olive oil??? Impossible!


Obviously, from this guy's statement, I can say that he has never done, or done with anybody — a liver flush.


BISER: Here is the man’s next comment. It scared one of my readers...


“The olive oil liver flush is not a good idea for a couple of reasons. First of all, consuming a large quantity of any oil will result in contraction of the gallbladder. It is quite possible that violent contraction of the gallbladder would increase the likelihood of a stone blocking the bile duct. This is a very serious condition that often requires immediate surgery to prevent death.”


Now, comment on that one.


SCHULZE: Why do we do the flush? It is to cause a contraction of the gallbladder, and purge out the contents.


I always tell people that the gallbladder is like the rectum of the liver. When we do a liver flush, it's like an enema. It flushes out whatever is in the gallbladder.


Notice how he says, “Quite possible.” This is his theory. I have done a liver flush on over 5,000 people and I've never had a person that got a gallstone stuck.


And what were his words again: “Quite possible.” This is why I say that an N.D. in this country nowadays, you might as well call them an M.D.


BISER: But what about his comment that this could cause death?


SCHULZE: This man is absolutely insane. That is my opinion of him.


I have had patients who have come to me from the hospital with gallstones (ultrasound) in their gallbladder, and stones entering and stuck in the bile duct, causing them extreme pain where they were doubled over.


I have many cases like this, and the minute they do the liver flush, they notice relief.


BISER: So the thing he says causes it, cures it.


SCHULZE: He's absolutely wrong. What an assh—.


You know what the bottom line is: this guy is coming from a fear standpoint like the medical doctors, and he also has no personal experience.                 


What he doesn't recognize is that the flush not only causes contraction of the gallbladder, but it also dilates the sphincter and enlarges this tube (the bile ducts) that go from the gallbladder to the duodenum. So that gets dilated.


And also, it's become slippery — you have olive oil in there. You are going to be able to pass stones much easier. Every patient who has ever come to see me….every one I have ever worked with, has been doing gallbladder flushes by the third or fourth visit.


BISER: Richard, this has been around for years. How come you get more results with the liver flush than anyone else?


SCHULZE: There are several reasons.


First, I do the gallbladder flush differently — as part of a program. Second, I do it much more often than anyone else.


By the time I have everyone do a gallbladder flush, they are on a vegetarian program. Even if they are not going to be a vegetarian, they are at least vegetarian for the time being, which means they are not continuing to take saturated fat into their body.

The second thing is I use herbs with it. A lot of people use the liver/gallbladder flush, but then they don't use the detoxification tea given in this chapter, which has bile-stimulating herbs, and they don't use the liver/gallbladder tonic.


I use the flush as part of a program, not as an isolated technique. The biggest promoter of this flush was Dr. Randolph Stone, and every morning at his school, 15 minutes afterward, you had 2 cups of hot, stimulating digestive tea.


I have people do the flush every day for five days, and then they go back to it a week later for another series of five flushes, and so on.


And I work up to it, one tablespoon of oil, one clove of garlic. I work it up. Anyone who is sensible works a program up.


And once you do the full flush on the incurables program, it's once a week. By contrast, other people in natural healing do it once a year. I'll do it every day when I am afraid the patients can die of their illness before I can help them. That's how lifesaving this flush is. It doesn't cause death. It cures.


Even in the most severe cases, when I have them do the flush right away because I am afraid they are going to die, I have' never, ever, ever, ever, ever had someone complain or even have a problem with having a gallstone stuck.


You can tell just by the way this man writes that he's not giving case histories. He's giving theories. What an ass. It's hard to believe this man is a professor of botany. Now you see why I can't recommend other healers in this country.


Chapter 7: Cleansing the Kidneys


Here are two formulas you will need for cleansing your kidneys. One formula is prepared as an herbal kidney tea. The other is a tincture which gets squirted into the tea before you drink it.


Here is the kidney/bladder tea:


2 parts Juniper berries

1 part Uva ursi leaves

1 part Dandelion leaf

1 part Kidney Bean pods


Add to this, one part of any of the following you can get:



a) Corn silk

b) Parsley root or leaf

c) Carrot tops

d) Watermelon seed and rind


Pour sixteen ounces of boiling distilled water over one rounded tablespoon of this herb tea, and let steep. Add four dropperfuls of the following kidney/bladder tonic.


Here is the formula for the kidney/bladder tonic:


2 parts Juniper berries 1 part Corn silk

1 part Uva ursi leaves

1 part Horsetail herb

1 part Pipsissewa leaf [optional]

1 part Burdock herb

1 part Goldenrod flower tops [optional]


On the incurables program, you are caking two cups of the tea three times a day, and you are putting a dropperful of the tonic in each cup of tea. If you need to, you can go to six cups of this tea a day, with twelve dropperfuls of the kidney/bladder tonic per day.


The reason one formula is a tea and the other a tincture is because some of the chemicals in the herbs are water-soluble and could come out in the tea better. Others could come out better in the tincture. When you use the tea and tincture together, you end up with a full-spectrum array of the chemicals in these plants.


Getting the herbal ingredients in this way is totally different to getting kidney herbs in a capsule full of dry powder. According to Dr. Schulze, when you're dealing with a capsule of dry powder, the volatile oil content is probably very insignificant. If you are taking herbs in this form, Dr. Schulze says he wouldn't expect anything to happen.


According to Dr. Schulze, Dr. Christopher carried fresh juniper berries in his first-aid kit. That's how he got his cures. He had people make teas and tonics. If you are getting your herb formulas in capsules. I'm not surprised that you're still quite sick.


I have never seen anybody whose kidney/bladder/urinary track infection wasn't gone in a week or less.


How to do the kidney flush. This is required on the incurables program.




Juice of one lemon and one lime

16 to 32 ounces of distilled water

A pinch of cayenne pepper

maple syrup to taste [optional]


Fifteen minutes after drinking the kidney/bladder flush, drink 2 cups of a kidney/bladder formula. Also drink 1 to 2 cup(s) of this tea is the early afternoon and early evening.


In each cup of the Kidney/Bladder Tea, add 1 dropperful (35 drops) of a kidney/bladder tincture.


SCHULZE: Every day on the incurables, for the first 30 days, they do a flush in the morning. I suggest that they alternate. They do one for one week, the liver/gall bladder flush (given in the liver chapter), then the next week the kidney/bladder, then the next week the liver/gall bladder. And they are doing both of those complete flushes regularly.


Poisons pour from your kidneys when you take these formulas made with fresh herbs.


BISER: You told me you've seen kidneys look like a Jacques Cousteau TV special inside of them with coral structures.


SCHULZE: There is no doubt about it. There are things that look like sea anemones, that are round with spikes kind of like toy jacks. It's everything from stones to small stones with spikes going out in every direction to big ones they call staghorn stones that look like deer antlers and that are quite big.


BISER: How big, an inch maybe?


SCHULZE: Three or four inches they can be. They can grow and encompass the whole inside of the kidney to where the entire kidney crystallizes and becomes plaqued and hardened.


BISER: And you have seen that?


SCHULZE: Oh, yeah.


BISER: How would you get to see things like that?


SCHULZE: Those you don't see unless you are looking at medical photography, or at cadavers and organ dissection.


BISER: But again, a person might just have bad kidney functions and not know it.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I think it would be rare to open up anybody's kidney and say that it was perfectly clean.


And these kidney formations I'm describing, these were people who didn't even know they had kidney problems. I've seen people who were marathon runners that thought they were healthy — who had gall-bladders the size of soft balls that were impacted with cholesterol and stones.


BISER: And they died from an accident or something?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: These people didn't even know they had kidney disease. Now you can see the joke when people take dried-out juniper berries, a few capsules, and say I didn't get well.


SCHULZE: You know, many of the principles that are in herbs deteriorate quite rapidly. In fact, some herbs are best off using fresh, and if you use them dried, you are just not going to get the activity. This is one of the advantages of tinctures. When you make a tincture, you can use the fresh herbs and get them right into solution.


BISER: And then you lock in the chemical properties of the plant.


SCHULZE: That's why liquid extracts are preferred by the majority of natural healers and herbalists throughout the world. Unfortunately, as I will say elsewhere, most of the extracts they prepare are so weak, they are useless.


Regarding kidney cleansing with great quality herbs, it's quite dramatic what can come out of the kidneys, especially someone who has had years and years of infections or inflammation or crystallization growing in there.


I've seen jelly-like stuff come out, with strands of things. A horrible, horrible stench.


BISER: How bad? Like what?


SCHULZE: I've had to hold my breath to get some fresh air.


You feel like you are going to be sick. That is why you have to carry your cayenne tincture for yourself, too. I have...many times had these people 'bring in their urine specimens just to show me some of the stuff that was coming out.


How to dissolve kidney stones.


This formula is famous for dissolving stones. It is a routine of Dr. Christopher's that was revised and updated by Dr. Richard Schulze. It will dissolve stones in the kidneys and the entire urinary tract. It is soothing to inflamed tissues and assists in the smooth and painless release of the stones.


The ingredients in the formula are:


2 ounces of hydrangea root

2 ounces of gravel root

1 ounce of marshmallow root


The instructions are to take 5 ounces of these combined roots, cut or powdered. Obtain organically grown or wild-crafted herbs, not commercial grade herbs.


Take two quarts of fresh-squeezed apple juice, organic if possible, but it must be fresh-squeezed. Put half of the herbs (2.5 ounces) into each quart of fresh apple juice. Let sit overnight and in the morning bring each to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.


Let cool, strain out the herbs from one of the quarts, and drink this entire quart during the first day. Consume about two fluid ounces per hour. The first day, you should also drink an additional 32 ounces of distilled water.


Let the other quart sit in a cool, dark place, shaking it a few times this day; and the next morning; strain and drink this quart at the rate of one ounce per hour that you're awake for the next two days. You will be consuming about 16 ounces per day.


On these two days, you should also consume 32 ounces of distilled water and 32 ounces of fresh juices. On the fourth day, a juice fast is suggested consuming 64 ounces of distilled water and 64 ounces of fresh juices.


Consume only distilled water and the freshly squeezed juices during this period, but only up to one additional quart the first day and up to two quarts the second and third days.


Usually, only one time is necessary, but you may repeat this procedure at one week intervals until all stones are dissolved. Remember, one large stone will dissolve slower than twenty small ones. In difficult cases, it may be necessary to repeat this routine 2 or 3 times.


The following is FORBIDDEN: Absolutely no other liquids are allowed, especially alcoholic beverages, sodas, or any carbonated beverages (even the natural ones), black tea or herb tea, unless prescribed, coffee (decaf or regular), dairy products and no minerals.


Food program: The diet should be animal-free (vegan) and best if the patient fasts on fresh juices for the entire 3-day period. If fasting is not done, then a raw food diet is suggested, consuming only fruits, fruit juices, vegetables, and vegetable juices.


Best juices are: orange, distilled water with lemon and/or lime juice, cranberry, watermelon and vegetable combination with carrot, parsley, garlic and ginger root.


The kidney and bladder herbal tea formula mentioned earlier may be drunk, 2 to 6 cups a day; during this program.


This procedure helped one rock star eliminate nineteen kidney stones.


SCHULZE: He was a lead singer in a rock-and-roll band, living on whiskey and junk food. He had started peeing a lot of blood while on the road.


He came to UCLA, they did x-rays, and x-rayed nineteen kidney stones around pea-size in his kidneys. And that was what was causing the bleeding. They suggested surgery.


That afternoon, he had to go pick up a guitar and went into the guitar .store and my brother worked in the shop. And the guy said, “I've got to have kidney surgery.”


My brother goes, “Look, I don't know, but my brother is some kind of holistic healer,” and he carries my card. He said, “Give him a call and see what he can do.”


I said, “Get over here.” He came over and we did the procedure I just gave your readers.


Dr. Schulze uses garlic to eliminate a man's urinary tract infection — when nothing else helped.


BISER: Did it work?


SCHULZE: He did a double-strength routine. I thought we'd do it twice over the period of a whole week. He did it for two-and-a-half days, went back to UCLA and they x-rayed him and he was absolutely clean. The blood was gone and there were no kidney stones at all.


Doctors had given him every antibiotic and every possible treatment and couldn't get rid of his urinary tract infection. I gave him 4-6 big cloves of garlic a day, along with the kidney tea and kidney tonic formulas we have mentioned earlier, and it cured him. I've never seen garlic fail.


They used to use sulfa drugs for kidney infections, and garlic has almost 80 different sulphur compounds in it.


In World War I, they used sulfa drugs. They had that packet of sulphur, and if someone got shot or burned, they just poured sulphur on the area because sulphur is an anti-infection mineral.


Well, the British ran out of sulfa the first six months of the war, and so they thought, “Well, which plant contains the most sulphur?” As I just said, there are 80 different sulphur compounds in one clove of garlic.


They started mashing up garlic and putting it on moss and applying that to the wounds. They had a 50% decrease in the amount of battle wound infections by using garlic.


It worked better than any sulphur they could ever use. So the they asked the English people to grow garlic in their backyards and they did a big garlic drive; that was the official treatment for battle wounds, for the English in World War I. Just chopped garlic on moss, dirty mass, applied to the wound.


They never had infection, and they healed the wounds. This has been something that has been in use for centuries. The only reason that we are not using it now is because there is no money to be made in it.


BISER: Is the organic garlic more potent?


SCHULZE: Yes. Organics generally have more medicinal ingredients in them. Plants can only grow and create chemicals from the richness of the soil. We've got garlic from the grocery store that was pathetic. The organic garlics we get are just absolutely unbelievable. There is so much sulphur and they are so rich. Garlic does it all. It's a broad spectrum antibiotic — for the kidneys and everything else.


False warning about juniper berries from popular herb books.


BISER: One book said that high doses of juniper berries causes kidney irritation or possibly kidney damage. They said, “This herb should not be used by anyone with kidney infection or a history of kidney impairment. Even low doses taken over a long period may cause problems.”


SCHULZE: First of all, juniper berries are not an herb that you would give someone to take nutritionally for the rest of their life. It's an herb that you use to clean the kidneys and to disinfect the kidney. I've had people use the fresh berries for months with no problems.


I wouldn't suggest it for more than a couple of months, because it should be clearing up your infection and making you pee. And if it's not, then there is something you are not dealing with that is going wrong.


If anyone has their kidney/bladder infection after a week of juniper berries, then we are barking up the wrong tree.


BISER: The book said that many elderly people suffer kidney impairment, and that those over 65 should consult their physician about their kidney function before taking this herb.


SCHULZE: They are absolutely barking up the wrong tree. Go back to your original statement about juniper.


BISER: They said that, “High doses cause kidney irritation and possibly kidney damage.”


SCHULZE: First of all, what the heck is a high dose? They were probably injecting a rat with straight juniper oil in lethal doses to make that statement. In other words, what is the high dose? One juniper berry or a wheelbarrow full? They don't quantify that statement, so it makes it absurd. They need to say 25 drops of tincture or 50, or 5,000 drops.


BISER: It also says juniper does not destroy fungi, and has never been shown effective for gonorrhea or bladder or kidney infections.


SCHULZE: You tell that to my patients who got cured. My answer to that question would be, “Can you show me the case studies that they have done?” Even medical journals and medical books say that the volatile oils in juniper and uva-ursi destroy bacteria. Juniper is listed in the British Pharmacopoeia as a urinary tract disinfectant. It was also listed that way in the old herbal dispensatories.


These medically thinking herb people give the herb only by itself, never as part of a formula, never as part of a cleansing program, and then say it doesn't work. I guarantee they have never even tried it. I guarantee they have never taken 20 people with kidney and bladder problems and given them the complete formulas and programs I do.


And no one is using fresh juniper berries. They are using dried-up berries that look like little pellets.

I wish you could be with me out in the fields here in Southern France. Yesterday, we made a juniper tincture. We just picked fresh juniper berries off the trees around here, put them in a blender with the cheapest vodka we could find at this French supermarket. Today there was a bright bluish-purple liquid that rose to the top and we tasted that; it's unbelievable. You can't buy anything like that in the U.S. This is the best I have ever had.


I think this is something that ties right in to what you were just talking about with herb quality. We need these people to know about getting things fresh off the trees. It will just blow your mind when you taste this. It's so incredible. And this is always the way. The fresher, the better. It's very simple. It's one reason I have been able to cure so people.


Chapter 8: Cleansing the bloodstream


This is the main blood-cleansing formula for the incurables program. You can make this formula yourself, even if you don't have all of the herbs.


Here are the ingredients:


2 parts Red clover blossoms

1 part Lobelia herb

1 part Cayenne pepper

2 parts Chaparral herb

1 part Garlic juice [make this in a juicer or blender]


To the above, add one part of any of the following you can get your hands on:


Burdock seed and root

Poke root

Yellow dock

Goldenseal root

 Oregon grape root

Bloodroot root sap

European mistletoe

Periwinkle flowers


Make a tincture of these herbs and take 4 to 12 full dropperfuls (35 drops each) of this tincture daily added to some juice or water.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure your red clover blossoms are deep violet purple. This is the color the blossoms have when they are at their peak. If the person you bought them from waited until after the blossoms started turning brown, this means the blood-cleansing chemicals have already begun to leave the blossoms and go back to the root, or have dissipated into the air. Someone's life can depend on the freshness of the herbs you get, and when they were harvested.


You can also obtain this tincture instead of making it. Addresses; are at the end of this Manual. Some of these herbs, such as mistletoe, poke root, periwinkle, lobelia, bloodroot and chaparral are not approved by the FDA for internal use. You can decide to use the FDA as your herbal advisor, or to listen to a person who actually cured the sick and dying. It’s your choice.


Making your own blood-cleansing tonic.


SCHULZE: This is very similar to the Dr. Christopher's popular red clover combination — but with added herbs from the Hoxsey and European formulas.


BISER: What if they want to make a tea, Richard?


SCHULZE: They could make a tea just of these particular ingredients.


On this formula, if they are going to make it a tea, about 25% of the tea should be red clover and chaparral. About half and half between them. The other 75% of the tea would be equal parts of all these other herbs.


Now the reason I've gone to liquid is because that's what used to be used; like back in the Lloyd brother's days, they used all liquid extracts. Their shelf life is 50 years; they are in your blood stream in 2 minutes. They are more concentrated because you are using alcohol and water as an extraction. Plus, you can use things like garlic juice or blood-root sap in there, and again the Hoxsey tonic was liquid.


Then, everybody started going to capsules to where this is almost considered normal. But it isn't normal, and it doesn't work.


But readers who want to could mix these herbs up in alcohol, and they could make a tincture of it. All they would have to do is mix these herbs up in that proportion that I gave earlier.


BISER: What did you say chaparral does?


SCHULZE: I said it makes tumors leap out of the body. It's incredible. Tumors leap out of the body. Indians used it for that. They knew. And they didn't have their positive-thinking tapes; they knew that when you took chaparral it made tumors go away.


When you get prickly ash for this formula, make sure it's prickly ash. Prickly ash should make your mouth go numb and prickly — or it isn't prickly ash.


Negative information on the cancer-killing herb red clover — from people who never used red clover.


BISER: In a book on herbs published by Rodale Press, they say that red clover doesn't get much respect among many herbal experts. Here is what they say, “The Food and Drug Administration says there isn't sufficient reason to suspect that there is any medicinal value to red clover. In the New Honest Herbal. Dr. Varro Tyler, Ph.D. dismisses claims that red clover helps treat cancer as, quote, 'Simply not factual.' ”  But the Rodale book goes on and says that the National Cancer Institute found several anti-tumor properties in the herb. What is your comment?


SCHULZE: These are such dumb comments. Again, if these people had seen red clover cure cancer in a clinic with live, real people, as I have many times, they would not make these stupid statements.


These are people who have never, ever treated patients like I did, yet they make statements they think herbalists should live by.


Even though a chemical analysis of red clover may or may not show anti-tumor compounds, that doesn't mean they aren't there. You can never discount the 400-year-old empirical history of how people used an herb.


Just because our current lab tools don't see something, doesn't mean it isn't there. For example, twenty years ago, scientists said that the polio vaccine was sterile, but now we know it wasn't.


When the polio vaccine was finished in the 50's, they cleaned it. It was made from pig pus; they cleaned it to where it was deemed sterile, except for the antibody to the polio virus. In the 70's, when they looked back at it they found 149 live viruses that the equipment of the 50's couldn't detect.


Science is limited by, and totally bound by, the quality' and the accuracy of the tools they have at the moment. That is why, as people develop greater research equipment, the rules of medicine go out the window. The scientific tests say that there isn't anything in red clover.


So what? Well, that is what they said 30 years ago with the polio vaccine and it was found to be wrong. Any scientist who takes their evaluation seriously is really ignorant. The information that you learn today; well, six months from now, there will be a new book written.


While the herbal armchair experts debate red clover, your readers can cure themselves of cancer by using it. Then, 20 years later, scientists-will figure out why it happened. Red clover thins blood and improves circulation; that's enough to cure cancer right there.



Chapter 9: Making Tinctures


Make your own herbal tinctures at home — and throw out the stuff you bought from the stores. You'll be a lot healthier for doing this.


To make your tinctures, do the following...


1) Get fresh herbs.


2) Put them in a blender in the proper proportions. You can mix them in a bowl first if it fills more than the blender can hold.


3) Add just enough 80 to 100-proof vodka to cover the herbs. For herbs that are resinous like chaparral, use pure grain alcohol, which is called Everclear and is not sold in all states.

4) You will now have an herbal vodka sauce. Pour this into a jar to let it steep from two weeks to many months.


Put a lid on the jar. Shake several times a day. If you can, start the tincture on the day of the new moon. Then, let your tincture sit a minimum of 14 days till the full moon, and press through some cheesecloth into a bowl, and then pour into jars and keep in the dark.


Incidentally there are some ingredients in herbs that have to come out in alcohol, and which may not come out in an herbal tea.


For example, one of Dr. Christopher's teachers, Dr. Shook, noticed that a water tea of black cohosh didn't have the same effect, or anywhere near the same effect, on epilepsy. But he discovered that an alcohol tincture of black cohosh worked very dramatically. Herbs contain thousands of chemicals, and some come out in water, others with boiling water, and many more of them extract with alcohol.


If the alcohol in a tincture is of concern to you, put the dosage of tincture in a cup, pour boiling water over it and the alcohol is gone in a second.


By the way, you may also extract herbs in oil. Garlic is done in this fashion. So is lavender and many other plants. A plant extraction in oil may not be as strong, but for the skin, it can be more soothing. Also, sometimes, as in the case of peppermint or lavender, an oil is what you are usually trying to extract.


It is important that you press out your tincture on the day of the full moon.


Richard Schulze says that Dr. Christopher, and he, found that tinctures were stronger when made this way. Dr. Christopher said you could smell the tincture NOT pressed on the full moon and they weren’t as strong. It makes sense, because planting crops is done with the phases of the moon. And different crops are harvested according to the moon. The tides change with the moon. So why would herbs not be affected by something that strong?


Also, please note: Letting your herbs soak in alcohol for fourteen days is an absolute minimum. Richard Schulze usually lets his tinctures stand for two to three months before straining. He has one false unicorn(?) tincture (for women who are threatening miscarriage) that has been sitting since the early 1980's. He dips into it occasionally when he needs some, adds more alcohol if it needs it, and lets it continue to soak.


Some of Richard's students make a double-potency tincture. They first make a regular tincture. Then, before using it, they add fresh herbs into the tincture as if it were clear alcohol, and then they let that continue to soak. When that is pressed, you have gone through two soakings with two different batches of fresh herbs. What a brew!


Please do not believe herb company advertising about their superior tinctures.


As I have said elsewhere, the only thing high-potency about these; products is their advertising and their labels.


I have seen labels that say “double or triple-extracted”; others say: “made with organically grown and wild-crafted herbs”, and in spite of what they say, you can make a far stronger tincture in your own kitchen.


Here is what appears to me that the herb companies are doing wrong: They are not using enough herbs, and they are not letting the herbs soak long enough. Both of these measures, herbs and time, cost money. You can always make more money if you use less herbs, especially at $22 per pound, and if you cut the time down to 3 days.


Herb companies say they are formulating their tinctures to something called the national formulary standard, and that more than a certain amount of herbs, usually one part herbs and 4 parts alcohol, is not necessary, because the alcohol becomes saturated.


According to Richard Schulze, “This is supposed to be scientific because the alcohol is supposedly saturated and can't possibly pull out any more.”


“You know what, someone with cancer doesn't give a sh- about saturation point. All they want to know is I'm giving them what will give them their best chance. So what's the worst case scenario? I'm wasting herbs. Well, there's no shortage. And I figure the more I buy, the better.”


“But if theirs is fully saturated, how come the way I recommend is more potent? Everybody is doing three-day tinctures, and with small amounts of herbs. I don't know anybody who does tinctures according to the lunar cycles.”


I have to agree with Richard. These skimpy procedures are pathetic — and people can die because of useless herbal products. If these lazy manufacturers are correct, how come tinctures made with more herbs, and made longer, have a full-spectrum “knock-you-out” flavor not present in commercial tinctures? When you taste a great tincture, it is almost like you put a handful of the herb in your mouth. You should taste the barkiness or the rootiness. It shouldn't taste like colored alcohol and a little bit of herb.


Another problem is that the companies may not be harvesting the herbs at their peak of potency.


For example, I got one bag of blood-cleansing tea from a nationally known company. The red clover blossoms in it are brown.


They should be violet, the color they have when harvested at their peak. If you don't catch red clover, or any other herb at its peak, the power of the plant goes back into the root.


Then, the effect you want, the blood-cleansing or immune effects will be weaker — or hardly present at all.

Another problem is that herb companies use the weaker parts of the plant, which saves them money. For example, black walnut is a potent anti-fungal herb. The most potent part of the black walnut is the gooey substance around the nut. Yet most companies harvest and use black walnut leaf or bark, which is far less potent.


Another example is wild oat seed. Now, the oat straw goes for $2.59 a pound. But to get the oat seed at its milky stage will cost you $13.75 per pound. Cayenne pepper is $2.20 per pound. But Richard Schulze had one man grow Mexican hot pepper organically for him and it cost him $40 to $50 per pound. Herb companies never see you — so they suffer no bad effects if you never get well.


Get your own herbs, as fresh as you can get them, then prepare what you need at home. Tinctures last almost forever. Richard tasted some tinctures made in 1919 and they were so strong, they curled his toes. A tincture goes into your bloodstream in seconds. Forget capsules of dried, ground-up herbs. The colon formula mentioned earlier is the only one you should make or get in capsules. For everything else, make-fresh tea, or tincture the herbs at their peak.


Stop trusting your life to herb companies. Make your own tinctures.


I can't tell you this loud enough or enough times.


Make your own tinctures. Make your own tinctures. The worst, biggest, and stupidest mistake you can make is not to do your own tinctures at home.


Richard Shulze says that if you saw the difference it makes in health, you would become a fanatic on herb quality too. He told me.


“When you run a clinic, you know what :he end result will be. I' m going to have even-body from the two-year-old kids who are blue and rattling so loud because they can't breathe, and parents can't sleep. If the lobelia doesn't work, the asthmatics don't breathe, the people with nervous disorders don't stop twitching, you know what I'm saying? If I don't have good lobelia, it isn't going to dilate those bronchials. I always have that focus on what's at the end of the road. Who cares how much we throw away? We throw 75% of it away and this is from the organic growers, the wildcrafters.”


If you think Richard Schulze or I are exaggerating on herb quality, go to the store and buy the top brands of echinacea tincture, even the ones marked organically grown. Then, get some echinacea root, and make yourself a tincture of it with even one hour's soaking. Use plenty of echinacea root. Or, use the whole plant, if you wish. Prepare as instructed at the beginning of this chapter. Then taste it and compare.


You should have a strong, tingling feeling in your tongue and whole mouth from your own echinacea tincture. The other tinctures will barely do this. You will see for yourself, the other tinctures will be so weak that you will be disgusted. You could drink a whole bottle of these top brands and feel nothing — and have nothing happen for your health.


Another example: Richard took one pod, one single seed pod, of a fresh lobelia plant, and in twenty minutes, he was dripping sweat, peeing, pooping and puking at the same time. He gave one pod of this to students and it made their heads spin.


Yet, at other times, he took 3 bottles of commercial lobelia tincture and one student drank all three and didn't throw up. Nothing happened. These people are selling you junk that, at best, is okay, but it is never great — and it is never the quality you should be giving to your spouse or to your children if they were dying.


I asked Richard Schulze to rate the herb tinctures on the market today and he said on a scale of zero to one hundred, most are between a 0 and a 20.


An important note on dosage: Many times, when you stare taking a new herb or formula, you may need 2, 3 or 4 times the normal dosage on the first day to get the effect. It's like you are opening up your organ system and you need to blast through. After that, you can reduce the dosage. Richard and I are the kind of people who like to feel the earth move when we take something. I always use enough of an herb or formula until I can feel something happening — even if the dose is 10 times anyone else's.


The power of a great tincture: the horses were dying from fungus, but this fresh black walnut tincture cured them.


Let me give you this herbal horse story in Richard's own words, as he told it to me:


“One thing about horse stories, horses can't imagine themselves well. Or they can't do positive affirmations, you know what I mean. When you get a horse well, you know you've got something that worked.


“Now, the Los Angeles equestrian center is the biggest equestrian center in LA, and they have thousands of horses there. About 12 year-ago, they had an epidemic of ringworm, which is a fungus, run rampant: throughout the barn.


“Now the ringworm was so bad that you could grab a hold of the horses and pull out clumps of their hair in your hand, and it would be pussy and wet, and you could just pull the hair off. They even had horses die from the secondary infections. The veterinarians were treating these horses with betadine solution, inorganic iodine, and it was burning their skin; they even had a couple of horses die.


“One of the owners of these horses said to me, “Look, will you treat my horse, the veterinarians are killing them?” I said, “Fine.” I went there and treated the horse and within a couple of days it was better.


“The owner of the equestrian center saw that, and called me upon the phone. He goes, “We have 150 horses here with severe fungus, it's an epidemic running through the barn, could you help them?”


“I said. “Yes.” And he said, “Could you come over here and help them?” And I said, “Now?” He wanted me the next day. Now, I've got 150 horses that need black Walnut and I hardly have any in the clinic. Luckily, this was September, it almost worked out perfectly, and I knew where all the black walnut trees are in Los Angeles. We went and gathered all night long. We made up gallons of tincture that had probably 8 hours only in them. Dr. Christopher always said, if it's a one-minute tincture, it's a one-minute tincture. So we had an 8-hour black walnut tincture.


“We went over to the barn and washed 150 horses twice a day for a week with black walnut tincture, and then we also fed them black walnut with red clover, and other good blood cleansers and they loved it.


“The owner then fired 12 veterinarians who were working full-time there, and took them off the cases of these horses. This had been going on two months. In 8 days after I came, there wasn't a horse in that barn with fungus.


“Nowadays, when you get black walnut, usually leaf powder, that's the weakest part of the plant. It may not even work very well. If you're lucky, you get black walnut bark, which is a little better, but what the Doc used himself was the inner hull of the black walnut.


“When you look at a black walnut growing on a tree, it's a green ball about the size of a cue ball in pool and it's green. At the end of the year, it starts getting brown spots on it, and then, once it goes almost totally brown, it will drop off.


“You want it when the brown spots have developed and when you grab it, and it’s soft and kind of rotten, and you just crack it open in your hands, and inside that green skin is dark black/brown goo.


“It's wettish, fibrous, material and if you smell it, it smells like iodine. Pure organic iodine. Inside that goo is what we know as a walnut. The shell and inside the nut. When a walnut grows, it doesn't grow like that. Outside is this goo and outside that is this green skin.


“Dr. Christopher used that goo and you just take that, you don't use the walnut, and you just take that skin off and you put it in jars and you tincture that, or make a tea, and that's the strongest part of the black walnut tree.”


Black walnut tincture for fungus on scalp.


SCHULZE: Dr. Christopher had a patient who, all his life, had a crust that would develop on the top of his head. Dr. Christopher said that in some areas it even became an inch thick.


And it was like a ringworm in some ways, but like a fungus in other ways. He talked about it even being cradle cap, you know.


Every doctor in the Army had treated him and they weren't successful (it kept coming back), so they would give Dr. Christopher the incurable cases when he was in the military, because he was a conscientious objector in World War II.


So he used the black walnut and he bandaged this guy's head and just kept soaking the black walnut into it. And I forget the period of time:, but he said that about in two weeks, he decided to lift it off, and not only did this cold bandage come off, but a whole helmet of crust came off. He said the guy had all pink skin underneath and never had the problem again. And that was one of his black walnut stories.


Dr. Christopher wasn't using the weak black walnut tinctures sold today. He even went and dug the black walnuts from under the snow, because he knew where the black walnut tree was. It was in the dead or winter, so under the snow he dug and found those frozen old rotty black walnuts and he used those.


You know, that's the whole key. You've got to know your area, you've got to know what's there and when to get it and so many people just have so much in their area. If they only knew what was out there. Your readers have got to stop relying on health food stores.


When you make ointments, don't use pig lard as Dr. Christopher suggested.


Dr. Christopher used pig lard as a base for his black ointment. That was because lard was excellent for absorbing poisons from the body. In Dr. Christopher's day the pig was a barnyard animal. But today; it is a feedlot animal full of hormones and antibiotics. It's not exactly what you want for absorbing poisons, when it's full of poisons itself.


Richard Schulze now uses Aztec sun-dried Bentonite clay to absorb toxins. Richard also has a new concept in ointments. Why use inert ingredients that take up space from herbs? Therefore, he uses only herbs and oils — no filler. For example, in his deep tissue repair oil, there is no petroleum — only wintergreen oil, and herbs that have been extracted in olive oil instead of alcohol. More about this formula later in my chapter on arthritis.


In Richard's version of Dr. Christopher's famous anti-cancer black ointment, the ingredients are bentonite clay, slippery elm (to hold it together) — an excellent base for any poultice, garlic, goldenseal, activated willow charcoal — another great substance to absorb poison, and other herbs. (Covered in more detail in the chapter on breast cancer.)


Whenever you need a mixture to put on your skin, you can always throw herbs in a blender, throw in some slippery elm, some garlic, some vinegar, some cayenne for circulation, and some poke root which absorbs cancerous poisons. Use whatever is available, and between your food processor and your blender, and some fresh herbs, you can cure a lot of serious disorders. More specifics in other chapters.


A special drawing clay to use as a base for your ointments.


It's called Aztec Healing Clay. Natives in Central America dig it out of the ground, and then just dump it on tarps and let it dry in the sun. Other clays are dried in furnaces and have hydrocarbon residues. Write to Aztec Clay, EO. Box 841, Pahrump, Nevada (702) 727-1882.


Chapter 10: Diabetes


A woman with diabetes was saved from amputation by the methods you are about to read.


SCHULZE: I had a lady named Helen come to see me. Her family actually brought her in. She was a hairdresser.


She had diabetes, she was using insulin intravenously for years and the only reason they came to see me was because the doctors were going to amputate her legs.


The circulation in her legs had degenerated to a point where she already had gangrene in one of her legs, and the doctors just wanted to cut her legs off. Which is something that happens in advanced stages of diabetes. I have had lots of people come to me but she was about as far gone as they get. In fact, they said she might not even survive the surgery because her blood sugar was so out of control.


We've talked about things that we can do for blood sugar and one of the major things is stop eating sugar. A lot of people don't get that, and they don't think of all the things that they're eating that have refined sugars or sweeteners in them.


Garlic has been proven in university studies to not only reduce your blood sugar, but it also increases your own insulin production.


SCHULZE: It's a great healing herb for people who have diabetes. It's an herb that a lot of people overlook.


This woman took loads of fresh garlic, because the incurables program contains at least three cloves of fresh garlic every day.


She used a lot more than that. We also treated her legs with hot and cold therapy; body work and fomentations of cayenne and ginger tea to increase the circulation and get the blood flowing again in those legs, especially some of the areas that were turning dark purple to black — because they were just dead. The blood flow had stopped.


For the tea used in this treatment, use two quarts water and one-half cup cayenne (again, the hottest you can find — not the 40,000 H.U. stuff) and one-half cup fresh, chopped ginger.


BISER: You mean her leg was going to gangrene?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. The doctors had actually used the term gangrene. It had started in her right leg, lower calf and her ankle, and they suggested that it wouldn't get any better and her diabetes was so out of control that they wanted to save her by just cutting her legs off.


And, at that point, she woke up. It's amazing. Some people have to go a ways down the road before they wake and go “Wait a minute, I don't think I'm going to do that.” And so she decided that she would do anything before she had the doctors take a saw to her legs.


And she did the incurables treatment. She mainly did it just to heal her legs. This is another example where people don't think they can fix the real problem, the diabetes. I said, “No, you have to monitor your blood sugar every day, and you're going to be taking less and less-insulin” Sure enough, even during the first 30 days, I think she reduced her insulin intake by one third, at least.


BISER: What did she want to do?


SCHULZE: All she wanted to do was mainly just increase the circulation in her legs, because the doctors were threatening her with amputation of her legs. One of them was going to gangrene and the circulation was bad, so the family just brought her to me to increase the circulation in her legs so they wouldn't be cut off. They never thought that she could get over her diabetes.


We got the circulation in the legs increased and that purplish-black area of gangrene went back to nice pink tissue. We got the blood to flow, of course, with cayenne and ginger internally.


BISER: How much cayenne and ginger with her?


SCHULZE: Oh gosh, we dumped a lot into her. I would say she was consuming a quarter cup of cayenne every day, which is a pretty good amount, but she really liked it and we also had her on a good dose of ginger, a good circulation stimulant. We also put her leg in a cayenne bath of very hot water with a lot of cayenne and ginger, handfuls of it, and she would put it in that and soak it for a few minutes and then take it out and plunge it into a tub of water filled with ice. And we went back and forth on that.


And I'll tell you, it was only days. Of course, that burns a lot, and she did some screaming and yelling because that cayenne gets very hot. But along with a little bit of body work, some skin-brushing and doing that hot and cold bath three times a day, that skin, the tissue was back in about 3 or 4 days. It was quite amazing. You know; gangrene, come on, no gangrene in the world is going to hang in when you're doing hot cayenne baths with ice plunges afterwards. I mean, it just isn't going to happen.


You're going to stimulate that circulation. You'll watch that area come back to life. I'm going to say that in 2-3-4 days, that area will come back to life. This does not take a long time. So she was thrilled, but I told her to hang in there and keep with it and she stayed on the incurables program.


The first 30 days, I think she knocked her insulin needs down by a third and she was off it in 3-4 months. This was someone who had been a diabetic for 15 years on intravenous insulin and was going downhill.


Garlic is powerful for anyone with diabetes, but you have to use enough.


BISER: Is garlic that powerful for diabetes?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. But you have to use enough. The incurables program calls for 3 large raw cloves minimum a day, and we could double that for someone with diabetes.


BISER: Does garlic actually lower sugar substantially?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It works two ways. It directly lowers your blood sugar without doing anything. It lowers the amount of sugar in your blood, but then it also stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, and of course, that's why you're shooting insulin because the pancreas isn't doing its job, so it's a good pancreatic stimulant, it also reduces your blood sugar level and it's a good one, obviously, for pancreatic cancer. Garlic is a brilliant herb.


BISER: But nobody talks about it, Richard.


SCHULZE: Oh, I know. And I've seen numerous medical reports for garlic, for diabetes. I would say I've seen 50-60 reports out of medical schools from universities where they've used garlic on diabetic patients. But then again, you're never going to see that anywhere because there’s no money in selling garlic.


BISER: Now, Richard, does garlic have a mild blood sugar-lowering action, or a strong one?


SCHULZE: I think it's incredibly strong. Of course, when you're testing for your blood sugar, you can test every day, and I've seen people reduce their insulin by half in a week. Really went at it with the juices and the garlic. Oh, it's very strong.


BISER: Richard, if it's in the medical literature, why wouldn't they use it? I know it's a dumb question.


SCHULZE: I know! I would say about a tenth of the research has been with diabetes. It's a very effective treatment for diabetics. But you know what it is too? It's too easy. Getting well with natural methods is simple. That would be the best way to describe it.


BISER: Richard, I have a friend who's got diabetes, but he says he gets diarrhea every time he eats garlic.


SCHULZE: Well, you know he may have a compound problem. He might have colitis or inflammation of the bowel, so a little bit of garlic goes a long way with him. You know, the best thing to do with him would be to find out what's going on with his bowel.


Maybe get his bowel soothed and detoxified with intestinal formula number two (given in the colon chapter) and then go in there with the garlic treatment, because it works very well for diabetes.


He might have an irritated or spastic colon or digestion, and .so he needs to start out with a little bit of garlic. Just a little bit, until he can tolerate that, then increase his dosage slowly.


Cayenne and blood sugar.


BISER: Does cayenne have any effect on sugar?


SCHULZE: Yes, just by stimulating the circulation, making your blood flow better. One of the things that happens with diabetics is that the circulation of their blood gets horrible. Sometimes, they even have their extremities amputated in serious cases.


So, sure, cayenne's a brilliant herb, and it is part of the program. Whether or not it absolutely lowers blood sugar, I don't know, but when your blood is circulating more efficiently, you don't need as much of the chemicals that your body produces in your blood. A little goes a long way. That's definitely to be part of the program. But garlic specifically, yes.


When you have better circulation, you have better hormonal communication between your endocrine organs, such as the pancreas. If your blood is thick, it takes longer for your organs to get the chemical feedback messages they depend on. One of the greatest herbs in the world for female hormonal balancing, Dong Quai, just happens to increase circulation. It is no accident why it works.


Cedar berries and blood sugar.


BISER: Dr. Christopher always mentioned that cedar berry would help the pancreas, but is that true, or only for a few people?


SCHULZE: It's a Dr. Christopher original only. I have talked with people world-wide and nobody else does that. Now Dr. Christopher swore by it. I won't argue against his case histories.


My own feeling is that the pancreas is an endocrine organ like the liver, and any organ can wear out. Usually, when the endocrine organs aren't working well, it's a sign of whole endocrine system dysfunction.


To simplify this a little bit. I've never seen anyone with diabetes who wasn't living a horrifying life-style eating program. I don't met people with diabetes who are vegetarian that don't drink Coca-Cola. I was in a video store last night and I had my son Arthur in my hands and there was a lady with a 2-year-old kid, and she was pouring Pepsi into his bottle.


BISER: A 2-year-old kid with Pepsi!


SCHULZE: Yea, you know what I'm saying? You can't live like this, and then go looking for an herb to control diabetes.


When it comes to children, or adults too, if they are going to consume fruit juice, they dilute it. Easy on the fruit juices. I always find that diabetics who come to me they are sugar addicts, they are eating sweets, they are drinking a little Coca-cola, and so on. I've never had a diabetic come to me on insulin that was living a healthy life, ever.


There are pancreatic types, people predisposed for that pancreas to self-destruct. You have an unhealthy diet, and it self-destructs. Then you get termed a diabetic. And what it is, is that's just your weak organ.


BISER: They don't need to do anything for that organ, do they?


SCHULZE: I've never had to do anything special. I've played with a lot of diabetic or blood-sugar herbs. But my feeling is that the whole program did more than the herbs. You know, Dr. Christopher used the cedar berries, but that was his icing on the cake of the program.


BISER: I'm sure the way they promote it now is, “Forget the program, take the cedar berries.”


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I use a few different herbs here that I played with, but to be quite honest, my feeling is that everybody likes to talk about an herb that is good for regulating blood-sugar. My feeling is the best thing to regulate blood-sugar is don't drink Coca-Cola. There's too much sugar in all that stuff, and it runs down the pancreas.


Most of these people who come to me...well, everybody wants to skip the work.


But I’ve seen many people turn themselves around with diabetes. Again, the key is to slop eating sugar, because your pancreas is getting worn out.


Get into more raw food. Your pancreas has to make a lot of enzymes when you eat cooked food. Anybody who's diabetic really needs to move onto raw foods and get away from cooked foods. And, of course, that's the incurables program.



Chapter 11:  Alzheimer's and Dementia


This woman had Alzheimer's, but the family was terrified when she started talking.


SCHULZE: I had a wealthy family come to me, and their mother had Alzheimer's. I approached one of the members of the family, who was my patient, and I said, “Hey, let's work on her. We can get her well. Anybody can be well.”


The family was really resistant, and I couldn't understand why they would resist her recovery. I found out later.


So I went right to work, because I don't know of any incurable diseases. She hadn't spoken a word in two years, and I had her talking on the first visit.


BISER: How did you do that?


SCHULZE: I did some deep body work and she started talking right away.


BISER: Deep body work, like where?


SCHULZE: On her feet. Dr. Randolph Stone, a great natural healer, and the founder of polarity, said that when you have people who have lost their mind, working their feet is the opposite pole of their head. It takes a lot of tension out of them and it will loosen them up.


I did some deep work on her feet, and she said, “Oh my God, you're killing me.” Now this is a woman who hadn't spoken in two years.


BISER: So you beat the dickens out of her feet?


SCHULZE: Not really. What you do is grab a hold of the person's feet and apply some strong steady pressure where it's tender. If you do the deep work that's needed, it can be tremendously painful, but it doesn't hurt anyone. It heals.


Dr. Stone believed that you could cure catatonic patients by getting these toes and feet adjusted. There's a book out there called Health Building by Dr Stone.  It’s been pathetically diluted over the years, but it's all that's available.


After we got that breakthrough, I started this woman on the herbal programs, the food programs, everything. Within two weeks, there was a dramatic change in her. She was responding. She was getting better. She was starting to say simple words and this screwed up everything.


BISER: What do you mean “screwed up everything”?


SCHULZE: Well, all of a sudden, I got a call from her psychiatrist. He said, “Don't go over to the house.” The family ordered me off the case.


You see, what the family had done, for tax purposes, was that when she first started showing signs of dementia, they put the controlling shares of the family business in this woman's name, and they did all kinds of estate-planning.


Everything was planned on her being nuts and dying. The thought of her getting normal was terrifying.


The attorney sent me a letter. He said, “Don't even show up at that address. We'll have you arrested.” The daughter came crying to me for help and said, “What do you think I should do?” And I said, “I think you should help your mother get well.”


You know, that's not something I ever lose sight of. I don't give .a sh- about stock and controlling interests and all that. But I didn't want so get arrested, so there was nothing I could do and that was my first case-of Alzheimer's.


Some advice on deep body work before we go farther.


BISER: Since you've mentioned body work to help the brain, any advice for readers?


SCHULZE: For openers, they can get a hold of both sides of the foot and the heel, you'll find hot points on either side, and you grab those sensitive points as you start rotating the foot with the other hand. Those are the spots for the prostate and testes on a man and on a woman, it's the uterus and ovaries.


You can use your knuckle. You can use the flat part of your elbow to get more force. As you go really deep, you'll actually feel sediment in the tissues; it feels like grain.


The person should be sweating when you're working on their feet. They should have a slightly traumatized look on their face. If you are easy on the patient, you're not helping them; you are leaving them sick.


How to cure people with dementia.


SCHULZE: I have had hundreds of people with dementia. Usually the relatives bring them in when they start to go. And usually it's pretty easy to deal with because the people with dementia don't have much choice. The relatives want to get them well, and the people with dementia have usually gotten to the point where they'll almost eat anything you put in front of them.


BISER: You can give them the whole program?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. The relatives can be relentless. And I would suggest anybody out there who is reading this, if their relative, their wife or their husband, whatever, is starting to have senility, premature senility, the bottom line is they are not going to turn it around unless you do something dramatic.


They're slipping away on you. You're losing them, and what you have to do is absolutely turn their life around. The incurables program is just the program to do that.


BISER: Do these people with parents with dementia play around with it?


SCHULZE: I see this all the time. They think, well, we're losing them, we don't want to make them uncomfortable. Most people with dementia don't even remember what it is they like to eat. You know what I'm saying?


BISER: So why worry about it?


SCHULZE: That's right, why worry about it. You can say, “This is what you like to eat,” and they say, “OK”, and they eat it.


I find that most patients with dementia, and I don't mean to make light of this, are very easy to work with. They're so confused that they don't even know what's normal. So, you can put the incurables program out in front of them and they'll eat it. They'll tolerate it. They don't make a big deal about it.


As soon as you start getting super nutrition into these people: you'll see such a change, and if I had to pick on one system of the body to clean out, it's definitely the liver and bowel. A lot of liver and bowel cleansing really helps clear these people's heads, and, of course, the brain herbs get that blood and oxygen circulated.


BISER: I noticed the main effect from cleaning the liver was better thinking in the brain. The strongest effect in me with cleaning the liver was mental.


SCHULZE: Yes, you know the liver processes and stores glucose and that is the absolute brain food. That's what our brain runs on, it's the sugar that our brain runs on. Our liver helps process that and puts it into our blood stream.


Our liver also cleans that blood of waste. The brain manufactures a tremendous amount of waste when it's going through its processes. The bottom line is that there is a direct liver-to-brain connection.


When you clean that liver out, it's going to be like the fog has lifted. You know, I've had patients explain it to me and they say, “Gosh, it's like the fog lifted. I can think better, my memory is better, I can think clearer and sharper.” If you have a dirty liver, you just can't think right. You know, Dr. Jensen used to say “You can't have sweet thoughts on x. sour stomach.”


And it's so true, when your digestion is off, you don't have any focus or any concentration.


BISER: Now, you've handled cases that would have been considered Alzheimer's?


SCHULZE: I've had people so bad they were howling like wolves. I had that woman who hadn't spoken a word in two years. She howled like a wolf.


BISER: You mean like a looney?


SCHULZE: Oh, gone! In fact, with some of these people, the doctors tried surgery on them; they have shunts in their head draining excess brain fluid. You can see the shunt going down their shoulder under their skin and it goes into their stomach, and drains excess brain fluids into their stomach. You wouldn't believe some of the horrors I've seen that medicine has performed. It's like Frankenstein.


BISER: Have you ever seen people in diapers and wheelchairs?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. They can't move, they're fidgeting, and having neurological disorders where their hands are shaking and they're howling like wild animals.


BISER: You mean, you've seen more than one person like this?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely.


BISER: Why do they howl?


SCHULZE: It's a good question. I think it's just because they've lost all touch with reality. They've turned basically into animals. Their brain has gone.


One thing is amazing: I've seen people who hadn't talked in 2 or 3 years talk in a matter of weeks, start putting words and sentences together when you turn around their program — especially when you get the nutrition in. The nervous system works off of nutrition.


You start getting these juices going — things like super-food, and herbs like alfalfa, and nutrition into the body. It's unbelievable. And, of course the bowel is an absolute key, too. A lot of these people with dementia don't have good bowel habits.


A big problem is if they are being taken care of by nurses, the nurses don't want them to have good bowel habits. The more their bowels work, the bigger pain in the ass to the nurses. They don’t want to deal with this.


They'd rather the patient have that one bowel movement a week that's big as a softball and hard as granite. That's what they want, because it makes their job easier. They don't want to sit there wiping this person, who's got a messy bowel movement all over him 3 or 4 times a day and then have to give him a bath.


One of the first things I say to people is, get rid of those nurses if they're like that, and get some nurses in there who are not afraid to work, because getting healthy gets a little bit messy. But you get that juicer going, you get the herbs in, the bowel and liver cleaned out and. those brain herbs in — my God, it's really unbelievable.


The relatives just thought there was absolutely no hope, you know, “Let's make them a little bit more comfortable,” and the first thing: you know is, they're talking. It really is dramatic. In fact, many times, I've seen it where the relatives get mad because they never thought this person was going to get better. Did you ever see the movie called “Awakenings”?


BISER: No. Was it good?


SCHULZE: Oh yes. Robin Williams was in it, and it's a true story of the doctor who started bringing people out of comas...who have been in comas for 20-30 years using a drug called L-dopamine. What happened was that the relatives got mad. They said basically; “How dare you? My son went to sleep when he was 15 years and now he's a 40-yr.-old man, and you're bringing him back?”


It was too painful for the relatives. The bottom line in the end was that everybody wanted to put these people back to sleep. And this is what I see in Alzheimer's disease. It's too painful for a lot of people to see their relatives slip away, but it's almost more painful to see them come back and heal. Not everybody wants their relatives to get well. They've already written them off.


BISER: You mean emotionally they can't take it?


SCHULZE: Right. So you know, don't start cleaning this person's bowel or liver if you are not ready for them to come back, because they'll come back. I've seen it. Hundreds of them come back.


BISER: Alzheimer's is not incurable?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely not. And again, I've been down to the Robert French Hospital in Orange County in Costa Mesa that's the headquarters of the world for Alzheimer's disease. I've taken a tour of their facility, I've talked with the doctors. It's a bunch of crap.


All it is, is putting everybody who has premature dementia or senility together. They're lumping them all into one category. They're getting millions of dollars’ worth of research money and the bottom line is you have hundreds of people in there with hundreds of different things wrong with them.


Oh yeah, sometimes there's brain toxicity and this is why we need to do our cleansing, because a lot of these people have toxic levels of metals in their body; and this is where the bowel cleansing comes in, especially like fruit pectin and the intestinal formula #2 to draw those metals out of the body. I've seen so many cases of people who were losing it, and then came back.


BISER: So you're warning the people, if you don't want your loved ones hack, don't start the program.


SCHULZE: Yes, if you're not ready. Don't think you're going to make them a little more comfortable, because the next thing you know, they're going to be walking, talking, asking questions and ready to lead a normal healthy life again. And, can you handle it?


BISER: One doctor in Long Beach, a Dr. Ward, told me that many of his Alzheimer's patients seemed to be committing emotional suicide. Have you ever seen that?


SCHULZE: Oh yes. I had a patient who had a premature senility; she was almost catatonic. They diagnosed her with Alzheimer's Disease. Interestingly enough, the daughter found letters when they were going through her stuff. It appears that she developed the disease within four months of discovering that her husband was having an affair. I have had a lot of patients where I think it wasn't a disease; it was that life became too intolerable for them, and they withdrew from life, and into insanity as where they decided to go.


Going inward or nuts was easier than dealing with life because their whole life was shattered. I found that with many of these people, their life was shattered and they couldn't deal with it. They didn't know what to do. They had a nervous breakdown.


If you are going to get them well, you just have to be prepared to deal with that. Because that's going to come right back to the surface again. So they might need psychotherapy and not just nutritional help.


BISER: So you're saying it's not just a brain problem?


SCHULZE: Oh no, not at all. Even the former schoolteacher I discussed earlier, who came out of it by cleansing his bowel. Well, when he came out of it, he was horribly depressed about his financial situation.


And then, everybody remembered that before he went into clinical depression and chronic depression, he was having financial trouble for the first time in his life. Whenever the brain is involved, there is always a lot of emotional stuff. Does that make sense?


If it's true senility, it's a lack of blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the brain. We've had a lot of people with senility who back right out of it. And it's just simple things. Two categories; toxemia and lack of blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the brain. Sometimes the body gets so toxic it just starts depositing this stuff in the brain the same way it would in any organ. Your blood, you know, dumps.


BISER: I heard of one case there was a man who lived in an apartment for years and he was just nuts about mothballs, always wanted to kill all the moths. And you walked in there and it just......


SCHULZE: That's a killer.


BISER: Well, now he's got Alzheimer's. Any relation?


SCHULZE: Yes. He just poisoned himself. Mothballs are classic poison. That's why they don't use them anymore. And so he just needs a lot of detoxification. He's just got brain shutdown.


If you've gone senile before you're 70 years old, they call that Alzheimer's, you know. You just get lumped into that category and there's a hundred different reasons for it.


Some people are there because they are toxically poisoned from the outside. Some people are toxically poisoned from the inside. It isn't getting out. Or it's from emotional strain they couldn't deal with. Some from metal poisonings like aluminum. I've met people who were just overdosed with aluminum from the fluorides to the antacids to aluminum pots and pans.


So I think you have to take each case individually. This is true with every person who is sick with any disease. There's no such thing as Alzheimer's Disease, that's what I've discovered. Every person has a different story, from mothballs to aluminum, to “I couldn't handle my life because my husband was cheating on me”.


And they are all lumped into this category and this hospital is making billions of dollars in research money. So, what you have to do is you have to take the case history in each patient individually and just start working with them.


But we've had numerous people diagnosed with Alzheimer's who got better; they just came out of it; they are living normal lives today. And then, of course, what the doctors say is that it's not Alzheimer's. You run into that Catch-22 all the time. They say, well, it was probably just a temporary premature dementia, and they write-off the recovery to preserve their ignorance.


A brain formula for dementia patients.


Make this formula yourself at home as a tincture or tea. The ingredients are:


15 parts Ginkgo leaf

1 part Gotu kola herb

1 part Calamus root

1 part Rosemary flowers

1 part Kola nut

1 part Cayenne pepper the hottest you can get.


Use 2 dropperfuls of tincture three times a day, up to double dosage. As tea, use 6 cups per day, one teaspoon of herbs to a cup of tea. See information on making tinctures in Chapter Nine.


Chapter 12: Appendicitis


Appendicitis is basically advanced constipation. The appendix is a collection of lymph tissue.


It is designed to excrete immune system material into the bowel. It detects if there is bacteria and/or fungus in the bowel. It detects something in the bowel, and it will excrete white blood cells and immune cells to destroy that infection.


When you cut out that appendix, that's like if your hand hurts, cut it off. It doesn't make any sense. We need to save these appendices. In fact, modern immune studies out of UCLA Medical School textbooks say that when your appendix is removed, other parts of your immune system don't work as well.


They have even done studies showing that your spleen won't work as well when your appendix is out of there.


Stop all food, and do a high enema immediately.


BISER: What do you do in a case of severe appendicitis?


SCHULZE: When someone has appendicitis, the first thing you do is you stop eating — because appendicitis is caused by constipation and your fecal matter being pushed into the orifice of the appendix. It inflames and it hurts, and it can get so infected it will leak pus, and, of course, that is very dangerous.


No more food, go only to juices. Drink a large amount like a gallon a day of apple juice and/or add some prune juice to it, too. Do the high enemas we discussed earlier. In fact, you wouldn't want to do a colonic — you don't want any pressure in there. You just do that high enema and get that constipation out of there.


At least do a rectal enema. If that goes okay, then you go on to a high enema. Basically, what you are doing is stopping any food from going in, and getting out what is in there.


BISER: You use this even in life-threatening cases?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: What if it's hours away from rupture?


SCHULZE: That's what happened to a friend of mine in Florida. He freaked. He was ready to take his daughter to the hospital because she had a 103 degree fever.


What to do if perforation has already occurred.


BISER: What do you do with the fact that it's swelling up? How do you deal with it?


SCHULZE: The thing is that appendicitis usually happens after the person has had some bout with constipation, or over-eating or something like that. The minute you stop eating and you give a high enema, it takes the pressure off. And, of course, if you flood yourself with gallons of juices, then you don't have to worry about the fever.


If you feel you have an infection, then load yourself up with garlic and echinacea. That is in case there has been some perforation, or if there is some pus. If you have a fever, there has been some perforation. So take a lot of garlic and echinacea. Echinacea, you can take a ton of like two dropperfuls of tincture every hour for the next couple of days. Half bottle a day.


BISER: How much garlic should you take?


SCHULZE: Six cloves. That would be over the course of a day.


You can go more, but you'd better take it easy, because some people throw up on that. Then you can also do a liver flush immediately. Flush that bile, get that oil in; oil is wonderful. Get some intestinal formula #1 in (see the bowel chapter) and get that bowel working. Then you have gone in and done all the enemas, so you have relieved it from upper and lower — meaning, no food from the mouth, and all wastes out of the colon.


Use castor oil packs 24 hours a day over the appendix.


BISER: What do you do right on top of the area?


SCHULZE: Castor oil fomentation. Definitely. They are a must. I heard one woman who just had it with her son who did it continuously. They did it 24 hours a day.


And why not! You are talking about a situation in which most people are hospitalized and have surgery. That's exactly right. Castor oil packs 24 hours a day. I also like to do light massage over the appendix — even though medical doctors say to never touch the area.


BISER: Don't touch it, it's inflamed?


SCHULZE: I like to do light massage, and you are doing massage from the hip bone towards the navel or the groin. You are going from your lower right hand side up towards your center, and from your pubic bone area up towards your center. You can actually drain it a little bit. Just lightly, with the palm of your hand.


BISER: It doesn’t cause a rupture?


SCHULZE: Again, you have to use your consciousness. If it hurts tremendously when you are doing it, ease up a little bit. But you are trying to work that pus and fecal matter out of the appendix. I've never ruptured one doing that. I don't know a natural healer who will even do that. I've had a lot of people on my table with full-blown appendicitis and I've done it and it has helped.


BISER: You mean the swelling goes down?


SCHULZE: That's what happens. I had one interesting story I'll tell you. I was needing some money to do some traveling and I didn't have it. Some woman called Dr. Christopher and said, “My husband has appendicitis and is in the hospital.” She said, “There are two surgeons there and they want to do surgery immediately.” Dr. Christopher gave her my phone number.


She called me and brought her husband over, and we worked on him for about four hours until he was relieved. Then I gave him a program for two or three days, and he got better. She was a very influential person and sent me probably a hundred clients in the next three weeks. The long and short of it was I got the money to go on trip. I've never had a person who had to be cut open.


You know, when my friend from Florida called me, she was pretty far gone. She was really sweating bullets. Her daughter had full-blown appendicitis, 103 degree fever.


BISER: What was she doing for it?


SCHULZE: She was doing some stuff, but she didn't turn the volumes up enough. She was doing a little of this and a little of that. She said her daughter didn't want to.


BISER: Didn't want to what?


SCHULZE: I don't know...drink something. I said, “Julia, there is no time. I said, “Either you do this, or you go to the hospital.” She had considered the hospital, and hey, I can understand it. I have a son now too. It's a scary situation. I said, “If you take her to the hospital, and then you don't want to do what they say, you are stuck because they can take her away from you.”


Any hospital in the United States— if you take your kid in with appendicitis and you say, “I want to take him out; I don't want to operate,” then they will arrest you for endangering the welfare of a child. She got so scared, she decided to get on with what I told her.


BISER: The little girl could end up not being her daughter anymore.


SCHULZE: Exactly. They could take all her kids away if she had pulled some stunt like that. That scared her enough to go to work intensely. And sure enough, in 24 hours, her little girl, Maxine, was fine.



Chapter 13:  Immune System Formulas


In this section, you will learn about three formulas for the immune system. One of them, a simple echinacea root tincture, is part of the incurables program. The other two are for when you need them.


Let's start with echinacea root formula. The ingredients are:


9 parts fresh Echinacea angustifolia and echinacea purpurea root juice.

1 part Siberian ginseng root

1 part Pau d'Arco inner bark

1 part fresh Garlic bulb juice


BISER: I'm looking here at your immune formula, what do you mean echinacea root juice? Do you mean tea?


SCHULZE: No. You get the echinacea roots and you soak them in alcohol, like you were going to make a tincture. If you can get the fresh echinacea roots, it obviously works the best. What you do is to get a good fresh echinacea root and just soak it whole, or sliced against the length of the root, like you'd cut a carrot in half against the length.


And let it soak in alcohol for 2-3 days until it absorbs that alcohol. Then take it out of the alcohol, because you're not using the alcohol, and then you run the roots through a Champion juicer.


BISER: What do you do with the alcohol you've soaked it in?


SCHULZE: You can use that as a base for an echinacea tincture if you want, but that isn't really what you need. What you're getting out basically is all the liquid that's inside that echinacea root, and that's much stronger than an echinacea tincture.


BISER: If they can't get a Siberian ginseng, can they use American?


SCHULZE: It wouldn't be for the same exact thing. A Siberian ginseng is more of a strengthener over the long term. The American wild ginseng is more of a quick stimulant, like right away. But the Siberian ginseng plant really doesn't grow anywhere outside of Asia.


You add these to a jar in the proper proportions and tincture and if you are missing the ginseng, or the Pau D' Arco, make the formula anyway. Even just 90% echinacea root and 10% garlic will create the greatest immune tonic.


Dosage: Two dropperfuls, four to twelve times a day.


The second immune formula.


The second formula is the Super Tonic, a formula by Dr. Richard Schulze. This is the 1990's version of Dr. Christopher's original anti-plague formula, which I will give you in a moment.


The Formula


1 part fresh-chopped White onions, or the hottest onions available.

1 part fresh-chopped Garlic cloves

1 part fresh-grated Ginger root

1 part fresh-grated Horseradish root

1 part fresh-chopped Cayenne peppers or the hottest peppers available.


Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way up full with equal parts of the above chopped and grated herbs. Then fill to the top with raw, unfiltered, unbleached, undistilled apple cider vinegar. Close and shake vigorously and then top off the vinegar, if necessary. Begin this formula on the NEW moon and strain and bottle on the FULL moon, approximately 14 days.


Filter the mixture through a clean piece of cotton, bottle and label. Make sure that when you are making this tonic, that you shake it every time you walk by it, a minimum of once per day.


Remember that all the herbs and vegetables should be fresh (and organic, if possible), and to use dried herbs only in an emergency. If you have a hard time finding any of these particular herbs in your local health food store or grocery, try asking the produce manager for a special order, and if this doesn't work, look for them in an ethnic area of your town, such as Asian, Indian, Southern European, South American, etc. where people use these herbs in their everyday cooking.


Dosage: 1 teaspoon 3 times daily to 1 tablespoon every 1/2 hour, depending on the patient's condition.


SCHULZE: A single dose is a half to one full ounce, and I suggest an ounce. That's like a shot glass. And people say, “Isn't that a bit intense?” Well, hey, people sit at a bar and knock down shots of tequila.


You take an ounce, you gargle with it thoroughly. Get it all over the right side and the left side and the tonsils and deep in the throat. Then, you kind of just let it slide down your throat, not with really a swallow, just let it slide down your throat.


And that's an ounce of vinegar, basically, what you're taking. If someone has a real sensitive stomach, they can take a half ounce, but it's really an ounce shot, and I would suggest up to eight times a day a person could take that. So literally, they're taking 8 ounces a day, if they really need to recover from something.


Dr. Christopher's Anti-Plague Formula


This is the famous formula Dr. Christopher created for fighting outbreaks of any plague, plus colds and flus and any rapid systemic infections. Dosage: Same as the dosage on the preceding formula.




4 ounces Black walnut concentrate

4 ounces Wormwood concentrate

4 ounces Marshmallow root concentrate

4 ounces Oak bark concentrate

4 ounces Lobelia leaf or seed concentrate

4 ounces Mullein leaf concentrate

4 ounces Skullcap leaf concentrate

4 ounces Uva ursi, Hydrangea or Gravel root concentrate

8 ounces Comfrey root concentrate

32 ounces Apple cider vinegar

20 ounces Honey [raw, unfiltered and local is best]

20 ounces Glycerine

8 ounces Garlic juice [fresh, raw, organic]




Each concentrate should be made individually. Start by soaking each herb for four hours or more in enough distilled water to cover them. After soaking, add more distilled water so that the total added water equals 16 oz. water per 4 oz. of herbs.


After adding the appropriate amount of distilled water to the soaked herbs, simmer on a very low heat in a covered saucepan or double boiler for 30 minutes. Strain this decoction and place into an uncovered clean pan or uncovered double boiler and simmer it down to 1/4 the original amount, in other words, to 4 oz.


Each concentrate should be made separately and then only mixed when the entire formula is blended together. Using the amounts in this handout 120 ounces (approximately one gallon) will be made, if you desire to make less, just reduce all the proportions equally.


To make eight ounces of garlic juice takes one full pound or more of fresh garlic. Fresh garlic juice is extremely potent. That's what makes the formula work.


Comments on making garlic juice for the formula...


BISER: How much garlic gives you how much juice?


SCHULZE: If you're going to make straight garlic juice, theoretically you take garlic and run them right through the Champion juicer. You have to peel it. You just run the whole thing through. Cloves, skin and all and you're just getting the juice out of garlic. And that is incredibly (I can't underline this enough) potent. Most people can't take that straight.


You can't even put that on the skin straight. It'll burn it right off. Now that's what garlic juice is, but what we do is we add that to the tincture bases. It's like adding an essential oil; it's very concentrated.


I like to use it because it's the most active and it's the most concentrated. You can also tincture garlic and that's very strong, but it's nothing compared to when you juice garlic. You can imagine, you can juice pounds of garlic and you get 2 or 3 ounces of juice. You don't get a lot of juice out of garlic. But what you get out is.. .nuclear weaponry.


BISER: So, you put it through the Champion juicer?




BISER: OK. What about a food processor?


SCHULZE: You can, but it won't come out in a food processor.


BISER: It'll come out like a slurry or something?


SCHULZE: It'll come out like a slurry and then you probably want to put that in a cheesecloth and really squeeze it out. But it's hard to juice garlic. It doesn't have a lot of juice in it.


Dosage: 1 teaspoon 3 times daily to 1 tablespoon every 1/2 hour, depending on the patient's condition.



Chapter 14:  Eyes


In this chapter, you will learn about a formula that has corrected vision problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, cloudy vision and other visual degenerations.


You will also learn about improvements to Dr. Christopher's original eye formula, and you'll find out why people are getting such erratic results with it.


If you use commercial herbs in your eyewash, you could be getting pesticides in your eyes.


BISER: Why have my readers got such disappointing results with Dr. Christopher's eye formula?


SCHULZE: The first reason goes to what we talked about earlier; poor quality commercial-grade herbs. You want to make sure the herbs are organically grown or wild-crafted. You cannot trust where commercial herbs were grown, and how they were treated when they were imported into the U.S. Why would you want to use a formula to remove toxins from your eyes, and then use herbs with poisons in them?


On top of that, people are getting the herbs in powdered form. I think there is hardly any of the volatile oils and potency left in the herbs they're using.


The second problem is that people are not using the formula enough, because it's been too difficult to use. Most people will not go through the trouble of making the eye tea every two days, straining it and heating it after taking it out of the refrigerator, and then making sure they don't heat it too much, and then repeating this whole process six times a day. As I'll explain later, I've made the whole thing much easier.


The third reason people aren't getting results with their eyes is that, again, this is a dedicated program.


Whatever results the patient gets are dramatically reflected by the amount of work that they put into the program. If someone just uses the eyewash by itself, they can expect some differences. But if they use it six times a day, they can expect better differences. But if they use it six times a day along with having that juicer going, and juicing themselves three glasses of carrot juice a day, and getting all that vitamin A in their system then it's even better.


If they use it along with brain herbs like ginkgo biloba and cayenne and rosemary to stimulate more blood and oxygen to the brain, then it's better still.


And if they use it along with getting on their slant board, or slant couch once or twice a day, now we are talking about seeing dramatic results. People just tend to do one thing and expect it to create a miracle and you really have to put the whole program together.


I might say that over the years, too much emphasis has been put on just the herb formula — and not enough on the other things that Dr. Christopher said and talked about.


If you just use the herbs and don't cleanse your body — you may never get the healing that others do.


BISER: That's a good point, Richard. Over the years, people took out of his teachings what they felt like.


SCHULZE: They just took the herbs. Basically, it's just the herbs.


And if you read Dr. Christopher's writings; if you look at his books. Dr. Christopher would spend hours telling people about what as-called the “mucusless” diet. It's a high-fat diet that causes eye disorders, cataracts, and cholesterol deposits in the eyes.


You can't expect to clean the mucus and bacteria out of your eyes and get your eyes clean if you are packing it in just as fast with your food program, and if your liver is clogged and dirty and your blood is filthy.


Dr. Christopher created all of these programs that were full-spectrum. The herbs were just to accentuate all the work that you are also doing on these programs. And somehow over the years this has been lost to where they think, “Well, to fix your eyes, you use Dr. Christopher's eyewash.”


BISER: And to fix your kidneys, you do this herb, and to fix your this, you do that, and so on.


SCHULZE: That's what happened. As I just said, the foundation of all of Dr. Christopher's programs was the mucusless diet. He was a fanatic about eating a clean food program that cleaned your body, fed you with supernutrition and also promoted better elimination of the poisons from your systems.


And, of course, that was his diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains. And people out there will stay on their diet of Budweiser, pepperoni pizza, and constipation, use the eyewash and say, “It didn't work for me.” Well, that wasn't the whole program.


BISER: So you saw the results that he used to talk about.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I saw hundreds of patients who had tremendous results with all his programs. But again, Dr. Christopher used a whole spectrum of natural healing programs. Yet, so many people today, out of their laziness, are so stuck with their current life-style that they only use the herbs. And what is amazing is that, many times, it works. I'm always amazed at the power of herbs, when people just use them on their own.


BISER: And it works when they don't do the rest, but they can't count on it.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. But you can't ever count on it. And where the power of these programs really comes through is when, as a foundation, you use the vegetarian food program; you add to that your bowel cleansing, which is the beginning.


Of course, Dr. Christopher was strong with everybody about cleaning the bowel, but he was just as strong about cleaning the liver.


Everybody who worked with Dr. Christopher got a good food program and the liver and bowel cleansing, even if it was just to work towards doing that eyewash. Unfortunately, over the years people have kind of picked and chose what they wanted to from the Dr. Christopher routines. That's one big reason why people aren't seeing the cures talked about.


BISER: So they say it didn't work, he was just telling big stories.


SCHULZE: He didn't make any of these results up. It's the people who have watered down his programs, and who have substituted commercial-grade herbs for the fresh herbs he got from around the state of Utah, or wherever he lived at the time.


I use 800 times as much cayenne in the eyes as Dr. Christopher — and people get results in one single hour.


BISER: What is the formula and what have you done to improve it?


SCHULZE: Dr. Christopher's original formula is equal pans of eyebright herb, bayberry bark, red raspberry, and goldenseal, and one-eighth part cayenne. What I do is increase the amount of cayenne in the formula. I've even made the formula with 800 times as much cayenne as Dr. Christopher did.


BISER: 800 times? Wouldn't that burn someone's eye out?


SCHULZE: No. Not at all. We put a hundred parts cayenne, so that's 800 times his original recipe. You put it in once and you have involuntary eye closure, it burns the students' eyes. They can't believe it. They are all standing around blind; nobody can walk anywhere. It's like a Chinese fire drill in the kitchen, but in three minutes, they open their eyes and they see better than they ever remember seeing and they are amazed that they can still have eyesight.


In five minutes, their eyes are clear and sparkling and they are: amazed. You know what that does?


BISER: What?


SCHULZE: It makes nobody afraid of an eighth part cayenne. And I do that on purpose.


BISER: What do you recommend our readers do?


SCHULZE: Start with Dr. Christopher's portion of one-eighth part, and then when you are comfortable with that, which usually doesn't take very long, you can go to one-quarter part, one-half part, but you can take it up even beyond that to 2 parts, 3 parts, 4 parts, and beyond.


Another thing I recommend, instead of preparing eyewash tea and then double straining it and making it lukewarm, is to skip all that and do a tincture. We've covered how to make tinctures in an earlier chapter.


One of the great advantages about having it in a liquid extract is you can literally wash your eyes out 6 times a day. It's very simple. You take out the eye cup, you put 5-10 drops of the formula in an extract in that cup, fill it up with distilled water, tip back and wash your eye.


You can wash both eyes out twice in less than 5 minutes.


I've had hundreds of patients with cataracts get better eyesight and get rid of their cataracts.


BISER: How long for really severe eye problems? How often a day should they wash it?


SCHULZE: Five or six times a day.


BISER: Most people are not doing that, what are they doing?


SCHULZE: Two to three times a day with the tea.


BISER: I doubt if they even do that.


SCHULZE: I doubt it, too. Most people just aren't dedicated. But my patients who have been dedicated with it have had dramatic results. I've had many patients lessen their prescription on their glasses and eventually throw their glasses away. I've had many patients with glaucoma recover.


BISER: Dr. Christopher said that cataracts used to flop off, is that true?


SCHULZE: I haven't seen it quite like that. But I have seen a lot of people with cataracts do the eyewash for 1 day, 2 days, 3 days and then I will get a call from a horrified person.


They wake up in the morning and their eyes are absolutely stuck shut. They can't get their eyes open, and they are actually calling me on the telephone with their eyes glued shut.


Of course, it's no big panic. I have them take hot washcloths with water and put them on the eyes. And what it is that during the night after doing all this eyewashing, their eyes eliminate poisons, toxins, pus, and bacteria from the tear ducts and so on. All this has glued their eyes shut during the night. That is not an uncommon thing to happen, especially with people who are using the routine for cataracts.


BISER: What about infection coming out of the eyes? Have you ever seen people whose eyes supposedly got infected from this? I've heard people say it caused a serious eye infection.


SCHULZE: Yes, but that's not true. Of course, your doctor may say that. But what's happened is these herbs are drawing mucus and pus out of the tear ducts and out of the eye.


So what appears to be that you got an infection after two or to be days of using the eyewash is just the purification process. If you keep going with it in another day or two it will be over.


I've seen the same thing with his vaginal bolus routine. I've seen women do it, and then all of a sudden they develop a discharge and have an irritation and discharge vaginally. And certainly if you go to your OB/GYN and say I've been putting herbs up my vagina —


BISER: They will say that you contaminated your vagina.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. But the bottom line is it's drawing this maternal out. If you continue the program, it will come out and stay out.


BISER: What happens if it comes out in their eyes; how do they deal with it? All of a sudden, they think there is a raging infection.


SCHULZE: It's not that bad, and of course, one thing that is in the formula is goldenseal. Goldenseal is a great anti-bacterial to the mucous membranes and especially the eyes.


So it is not a problem, you just use more eyewash the minute you notice that coming out. It's not uncommon in cases of serious eye disease. Once you are using the eyewash for 2-3 days or even a week, all of a sudden your tear ducts start opening up. Of course, this is one of the things that the eyewash does.


BISER: Have you ever had any infection get out of control?


SCHULZE: No, never. I just have people that have their eyes stuck. A hot washcloth is all that is needed to do the trick, and then you wash the eyes out again. I've never had anybody have a real problem with it except being a little startled from waking up with their eyes stuck shut.


BISER: How much cayenne do you recommend for maximum results?


SCHULZE: We put in 40 times more than Dr. Christopher. Instead of one-eighth part cayenne, we put in about 5 parts cayenne.


BISER: And it's causing pussing in one hour.


SCHULZE: In one hour, we had one of the girls bringing like a strand of mucus out of the corner of the eye.


BISER: It's doing cleansing that my readers aren't getting in months of taking junk herbs.


SCHULZE: That's for sure. And there is the thing, too, that your readers and other healers get stuck on — the irrational fear of cayenne pepper.


I think it's normal human nature to be afraid. But you always have to weigh out the alternatives. If I don't push my patients far enough, if I don't dare to put 50 times the cayenne in Dr. Christopher's eyewash— these people are going to have laser surgery on their eyes.


And in my mind, laser surgery is worse than a little temporary discomfort from cayenne pepper.


BISER: Have you ever had people who were almost blind?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I've had people who couldn't see anything. They describe it as though they are looking through vaseline. I've had patients like that.


BISER: And you got them cured?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: What happens when it comes off, what do they tell you?


SCHULZE: They just start seeing clearer and clearer. Then their eyesight regains itself. But it doesn't just happen with drinking a couple of cups of eyebright tea.


It just isn't going to happen. We are using 50 times the cayenne, you work up to that, but we are using 50 times the cayenne.


We are also using the other herbs to stimulate circulation to the brain, and we are taking large doses of cayenne pepper orally.


And it just begins there. People just aren't turning up the volume on these programs enough. What are they afraid of? I'd be terrified of having laser surgery on my eyes. I find that my colleagues out there are letting their own fear get in the way. They don't consider that the patient is backed up against the wall — so, they never take natural healing anywhere close to what it can do.



Chapter 15:  Arthritis


A cleansing routine that can cure advanced arthritis in three weeks — if you're tough enough to handle it.


SCHULZE: I've seen different natural healers cure arthritis with various juice fasting regimes, but the late Paavo Airola's arthritis people got better faster than anybody.


It's because Paavo Airola didn't mind the pain they would go through during their healing process. He fasted them on citrus juice and apple cider vinegar.


Now, the idea is that apple cider vinegar and the citrus juices are very high in organic acids and those organic acids wash and clean your joints. And there's a lot to that. They flush out the inorganic acids, the uric acids, etc. He would take people out of wheelchairs and I would see them marching in three weeks. He'd kick their ass, and they'd be crying.


BISER: What do you mean, kick their ass?


SCHULZE: I mean, he'd kick them in the ass if they wouldn't get up to help. He said, “Now come on, we're going to march today.” If they wouldn't, he'd kick them. He'd get them out of the wheelchair and throw the wheelchair down the hill. He didn't take no for an answer. He had that typical European intensity. And he'd fast them on orange juices and apple cider vinegar and you'd even hear them crying at night, some of them. They were in such pain.


BISER: How much vinegar and how much juice?


SCHULZE: A couple of tablespoons in an 8-16 oz. glass of water 3, 4, 5 times a day. And, along with that, a citrus juice fast. He didn't always just use oranges. I mean, we're talking lemons and limes, which are stronger.


My wife will take three whole organic limes and put them in a blender and fill it with distilled water and blend it, peel and all, and we'll have that as a lime drink. And that will do it. She's a gouty-type person, and when she goes out, she gets pain in her knees from running and stuff. This takes it right away. Dr. Jensen sometimes wouldn't use citrus with arthritics because he said it's too intense. He used other juices. It worked fine. His people got better in six months. See the difference!


BISER: And Airola got them better how fast?


SCHULZE: Three weeks. I saw the turnaround so quick, okay?


BISER: So that's why they say citrus promotes reactions, because it's too intense.


SCHULZE: Yes, it's too intense. It hurts as these joints are cleaning. So why do the slow program? If you're going to be uncomfortable, why near be uncomfortable for 3 weeks — and then be well?


We've had a lot of people come through here. They couldn't move their hands, they couldn't hold a pen, they couldn't hold their pen and write their name, and their hands were actually fixated claws.


And we cured them using everything I've talked about, plus the deep tissue repair herbs we'll get into in a moment. But the big thing with arthritis is that people are looking for that one magic herb that will cure them.


And it's true, one or two of these herbs work, but you have to add the programs with it. That's why I say to people, Dr. Christopher called his book The School of Natural Healing — not the Great American: Herbal. He used foods, cleansing, emotions, hydrotherapy— not just herbs.


BISER: What would you do in a hopeless arthritic case?


SCHULZE: The first thing is you've got to get off of all foods that are acid-forming. Which means the mucusless diet. Which I call the purifying or health building diet.


Raw foods, raw food until the arthritis is better and juice fasting and raw foods. You can't have any animals, any dairy, any fish, any beef anything that contains uric acid in the muscles or the fluids and that will build-up in the system. A lot of people get confused on the matter of ph. It doesn't matter what something tests as far as ph.


BISER: You mean what it does in the body?


SCHULZE: Yes, what it does in the body. The highest acidic ph foods, like lemons and limes, are the most alkalizing for the body. It doesn't have anything to do with the ph...


BISER: You put them on that diet?


SCHULZE: Yeah, I put them on a lot of citrus, and if you're not going to use that, apple and grape works very well. But a lot of juice fasting.


BISER: Even for weeks at a time?


SCHULZE: Yeah, I've done two 30-day juice fasts and one 60-day juice fast.


BISER: With whom?


SCHULZE: Myself, personally.


BISER: What was it like?


SCHULZE: On the 28th day of my first 30-day juice fast, I kick-boxed seventeen rounds and no one could touch me. I had more energy than I've ever had in my life. So forget this stuff about not having energy or being weak or whatever. Where did I get my B-12, my protein? Who cares, who knows? I lived on juices, twice, for 30 days.


BISER: And you didn't turn to skin and bones?


SCHULZE: I lost weight, but not a dramatic amount. You level off after awhile.


BISER: Have you cured hopeless arthritics?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely.


BISER: I mean what did they look like?


SCHULZE: Wheelchairs. When I taught out West, I saw people in wheelchairs. I would wheel them right next to a glacier that melted. A stream ran down, as wide as this house, of frozen water. I use to take people in their wheelchairs and wheel them right into that stream.


BISER: What did you do that for?


SCHULZE: Just to stimulate their body. Frozen water, just to stimulate their body. It's like a hot and cold shower, but better. It's a shock. Of course, it's great if you have arthritis: ice packs, heat packs, hot and cold water, Stimulate that circulation.


BISER: Shock treatment to the body?


SCHULZE: Oh, it was wonderful. Just wonderful, and we used to prescribe a lot of hot and cold showers. Hydrotherapy.


BISER: You used hot and cold showers? Was it too brutal?


SCHULZE: You know, all my patients do it. I got a four-year-old kid doing the hot and cold.


BISER: So you do the icepacks with the arthritis and then you switch to heat?


SCHULZE: Hot and cold on the joints works really well.


BISER: When you say cold, do you mean ice cubes?


SCHULZE: Ice packs. Eight to ten minutes of ice, then hot water or hot packs, for eight to ten minutes. You can do it a long time at nights-, for several hours if you need to. You still do the hot and cold shower routine. But this ice, then heat, stimulates the blood flow better than anything.


BISER: And it doesn't cause blood vessels to burst? Because of the violence of the temperature changes?


SCHULZE: No. No, not at all. In fact, they do it on animals. You go to a race track and they are icing the legs and heating the legs of the hordes-all the time for better blood flow. People just don't do it anymore.


I had one orthopedic doctor suggest a contrast bath for me once in my life. I said. “What's that?” Well, he goes, “A little hot and cold”. It was something orthopedic doctors used all the time, but they don't it any more. They now regard it as medical history, not something you actually do for people.


BISER: You mentioned deep tissue repair herbs for arthritis. What are they?


SCHULZE: Yes, but this is something that nobody even knows about except me. This is, you might say, a triple step beyond cayenne ointment for relieving arthritis pain.


As you know, cayenne pepper has already been proven to reduce pain and inflammation. The trouble is, traditional cayenne ointments you get in the drugstores are pathetically weak, and made of synthetic ingredients. The old-time heating and healing ointments don't exist anymore, so I'm going to show your readers how to make one.


In a moment, I'll give you and your readers the formula and instructions, but first, let me tell you how I got into this. I'm not an arthritic, but I did need something for myself. When I began, I made the ointment for myself; I wasn't even thinking about what it would do for arthritics.


When I first made the cayenne ointment, I took it because I was in Karate. I spent 22 years in the martial arts.


I got 3 black belts in different martial arts. I have broken and ripped everything. In 1971, I was the champion brick-breaker of New York State. So, I wanted a rub but I couldn't find one strong enough — or one made with natural whole herbs — not chemical imitations.


All the preparations today used to be made from wintergreen oil, which is scientifically called methyl-salicylate, because it contains about 95% salicylic acid. They also used to be made from peppermint, which is now called menthol. Now-a-days, they don't use wintergreen anymore, they make it from boiling coal in sulfuric acid. It's phenol or carbolic acid. And the peppermint oil is also synthesized.


First of all, you don't have herbs anymore, second of all, the amounts they are putting in are not effective.


So I wanted one that was made the original way, with wintergreen oil, peppermint oil, and also cayenne. In Europe, they use cayenne, ginger and mustard like Dr. Christopher did, to stimulate the blood flow.


In fact, when you go skiing in the United States, they have this warm feet powder you put it in your socks. It's just cayenne pepper and mustard. Cayenne pepper, mustard, and ginger stimulate the blood flow, internally or externally.


So I soaked wintergreen and peppermint oil in there and I put in cayenne, ginger and mustard and made a heating balm. I took it to Dr. Christopher and said, “Here, Dr. Christopher, here's my heating balm.”


He goes, “Great!” He opened it up, and it was a one-ounce jar and he put his finger to the bottom, and took the whole ounce and went and put it in his mouth. And I said, “Dr. Christopher, no, don't put it in your mouth.” And he goes, “Why not?” And I go, “Because it's for the outside of your body.” He goes, “Is there anything in this that I shouldn't be putting in my mouth?”


I knew right there it was a test. His rule was never make anything to go inside or outside that you can't put inside or vice-versa. I thought about it and I thought there isn't anything you can't eat. It's olive oil and beeswax, the base he taught me to make every ointment of.  And peppermint oil, wintergreen oil, cayenne, ginger and mustard. He said, “Very good.” He loved it.


The base of it is wintergreen oil, which is almost pure salicylic add, the greatest anti-inflammatory for arthritis.


You can find L.A. Dodgers pouring it on their arms. I also put pure peppermint oil and peppermint in because they are the greatest anti-irritants. So this formula stimulates blood flow to the area, and reduces swelling and pain.


But now it gets even better. You add arnica, St. John's wort, and marigold, three yellow flowers which are the greatest trauma herbs for damaged, bruised, or traumatized tissues — as you have in arthritis.


The key to this is really rubbing it in. If you want, take a hot shower before, and then you put this on. It may be uncomfortable for a little bit because it's seriously hot, but what a healing!


Just make sure not to get it in your eyes, or near your genitals.


This is a deep tissue repair formula for muscle, tendon, ligaments, cartilage, joint and bone healing. This drives the circulation better than anything you can use externally.


Here is the formula for the tissue repair oil. Every arthritic needs to know how to make it, if necessary. It not only reduces pain, but it actually heals hurting tissue.




32 oz. Wintergreen oil

16 oz. Olive oil extra virgin

12 oz. Menthol crystals

1 cup Arnica flowers dried

1 cup St. John's Wort flowers dried

1 cup Marigold flowers dried

1/2 cup Cayenne pepper, powdered (Habaneros, i.e., the hottest you can find.)

1/2 cup Ginger root, grated.


This recipe produces two quarts of deep tissue repair oil.


INSTRUCTIONS: Put all these ingredients in one big jar. Let it soak for at least two weeks, then strain on the full moon two weeks later, or, if you have time, let it soak for two or three months before straining on a full moon.


A word on obtaining ingredients: 1) Regarding cayenne pepper, the hotter, the better. Use African bird peppers, or habaneros.


2) Buy your menthol crystals at either a pharmacy or a lab supply house. That one can be a little difficult, but usually a pharmacy or a lab supply house can supply it. A lot of pharmacists carry it, because it stops itching.


What they do is they distil peppermint oil to make it, then they distil it a second time and it crystallizes. These crystals are pure menthol. Menthol is one of the active principles of peppermint oil. You have peppermint leaves, which have a lot of active principles, then you have peppermint oil, which is a more concentrated form, and then you menthol crystals, which is even more concentrated.


Make sure the menthol crystals are made from peppermint or thyme.


Chemists always know that. I get it from a chemical supply house in Los Angeles. But a lot of times, people can contact their university or school, and just ask them where they can purchase some chemicals. You need a chemical supply house that sells natural chemicals that are derived from plants.


This is at least four times stronger than anything you can buy, plus it contains trauma-healing herbs that nothing else contains. My experience with that formula is just unbelievable. I really love it.


BISER: How do you get the menthol crystals to dissolve into the oil?


SCHULZE: The way we've been doing it recently is once you put the menthol in we set that on the floor and then we have a radiant heater that has a coil inside of it on the other side of the room. We face it in that direction, and at the end of the day, it melts the crystals.


In the summer, just put the jar in the sun for a few hours, or put the jar in a double boiler.


BISER: That dissolves it into it?


SCHULZE: Yes, it just has to be warm. You could also put it over a heat register and it would work. There's a lot of ways to do it.


Emotional advice for arthritics.


SCHULZE: I have found that arthritis is a crystallized disease for crystallized people. In other words, a lot of healers feel there's a certain mind-set that goes along with arthritis — which is not being open. When your body starts freezing up, what's going on with you emotionally? Why don't you want to go forward?


Most of my arthritis patients have been pretty constipated up here in their head.


I think this is one of the reasons why people tend not to get well with their arthritis. It's like weight loss. You can take all the pills, you can eat all the Lean Cuisine, but if you don't move your ass, you don't keep the weight off. Okay?


With arthritis, you can take all the pills, you can take all the arthritis preparations, but if you don't follow the food program and stop putting inorganic minerals and acids into your body, your joints won't un-inflame.


You also have to work with healing the mind — being a more open person and a more flexible person. People with arthritis aren't flexible physically and/or emotionally. This is their challenge, physically and emotionally.



Chapter 16:  Cervical Cancer


“Pap smears were designed to get women back into a doctor's office.”


BISER: Don't you think pap smears protect women?


SCHULZE: No, not at all. They con women into either biopsies or surgery for their cervix before they really have any problem.


The pap smear itself can cause enough inflammation to give you a bad pap smear the next time.


The pap smears are classified into five categories...1,2,3, and 4 and 5. Class 1 pap smear means nothing: you are fine. A class 2 pap smear and the gynecologist says, “Well, you know we got a problem here.” All a class 2 pap smear means is inflammation is present.


These are not cancer grades. These are pap smear classifications.


You can have that inflammation from one sexual intercourse, because the penis might bump against the cervix. You could have that inflammation from using a tampon that may have some bleach on it that caused some inflammation. You could have that inflammation just from taking antibiotics, which gave you a little bit of a yeast infection...


You didn't even notice the cause of the inflammation, but a doctor goes, “Well, inflammation is present, we better go farther. Let's do a biopsy.” In the old days, a biopsy used to be, “We'll take a little piece of that tissue.” Nowadays, they do what is called a 'cone-biopsy', which means they freeze the cervix and just take it off.


“I suggest that women never get a pap smear. It's just a way that a gynecologist makes his boat payment.”


SCHULZE: They take the whole tip of the cervix off. Then they figure, “Well look, why do a biopsy? We'll probably find cancer. We might as well get rid of the cervix and do it all in one treatment. And if we don't, she'll probably get cancer eventually.”


If a woman is checked five years later and is full of cancer, she can sue for malpractice if the biopsy was not done, so a doctor has every reason to cover himself and do it.


I have had numerous women come who have had that procedure just from a class two pap smear.


Okay, the average woman who comes to me thinking she is riddled with cancer, it's because she's had a class two pap smear. I have to show them the medical books and let them read class two pap smear and it says, “Inflammation of the cervix.” Well, you can hit your arm and you have inflammation. That's all it means. I would say that 99% of the women reading this don't have cancer, they just have inflammation.


Even a class three pap smear still doesn't mean that you have cancer. It means that you have more advanced inflammation, and that there are cells that could be cancer. It still doesn't mean you have cancer.


A class four and five, of course, means that there are cancer cells present, but I've had hundreds of women with a class four and five pap smear who have turned it right around by cleaning that area and detoxifying that area of the body.


But rarely do I find anybody with a class four or five, because by the time they are class two, or at least by the time they are at class three, a doctor has already done a biopsy or taken that cervix right off the uterus. The cervix is the mouth or the neck of the uterus. It's the opening of the uterus, and it has to dilate when you are going to have a baby.


So this can not only affect your future pregnancy, it can affect sexual intercourse; it can affect birth control, if you are using a cervical cap, and it can set up all sorts of problems. Of course, it can cause inflammation and disease which could lead to cancer.


“I'm not a believer in medicine. If you saw some of the butcheries done on women, you wouldn't be much of a believer either.”


SCHULZE: I had a woman in my office who had a squamous cell tumor in the uterus. This is a serious cancer tumor. I suggested that we treat it naturally.


Her oncologist even said, “Okay, look, treat it naturally, but at least, let us do localized radioactive treatment. Okay, let us beam that x-ray right on that tumor and just shrink it, kill it, and then do holistic healing if you want to.” A lot of oncologists are saying that nowadays.


BISER: What's wrong with that? It seems reasonable.


SCHULZE: Localized, pinpoint radiation is like a shotgun blast. There's no such thing.


BISER: Why is it not localized?


SCHULZE: Because it damages the tissue all around it. This woman had the radiation treatment. I couldn't talk her out of it. It burned out the walls between her rectum and her vagina and fecal matter was pouring out of her vaginal opening. Okay, this is your localized treatment!


This is your pinpoint radiation - scientific, high-tech, laser-guided, smart bomb radiation treatment.


BISER: You burn a whole in their bottom?


SCHULZE: We would have been better off with a small charge of C4 plastic explosive. I mean, they blew this woman open. They took out that wall, and what do you get? You get fecal matter going to the vagina. That's going to be really nice for infection and cancer. Now, this woman never got the chance to do the natural treatment. She's not alive.


BISER: But doctors talk in such gentle terms it sounds good, even to me.


SCHULZE: The machinery looks good, the technology seems nice, the stainless steel is shiny, everything smells like isopropyl alcohol; I mean, they are the greatest salesmen in the world.


We're going to look back at this century in the future and we're going to laugh eventually, but we'll cry first. This is one of the most barbaric periods. It's going to be called the Dark Ages of Medicine.


I've seen people who, after the biopsy — just the biopsy, not even cervical surgery, got such an infection that they ended up having a complete hysterectomy. They were gutted. I saw that with a woman, who was 26 years old. They started out just saying, “We are going to do a biopsy because the pap smear came back a class two,” which just inflammation.


So, they did a biopsy and inflamed her, then she got an infection. She ended up in intensive care and they took out her uterus, her cervix and both ovaries. They gutted her.


There is no such thing as a simple surgery. You know, I've seen people go in for surgery on their knees, get an infection, be in intensive care for seventeen days and almost die.


I had a patient who had a fever that lasted for awhile, and doctors didn't believe that it was a good thing. The patient went to the hospital, the hospital gave him drugs to reduce the fever, the fever got worse. The person went into a coma, then he went into intensive care. His fingers and toes turned black, became gangrenous. Doctors amputated his fingers and toes; and he died a week later from a fever.


And this is why the late Dr. Mendelson used to say, “If you are sick, whatever is going on, don't go to a doctor, don't ever walk into a hospital.” And that's from one of the former top doctors in the United States. I believe him.


“The woman thought she was just having continual heavy periods.  Instead, it was cervical and endometrial cancer.”


SCHULZE: I had a woman come to me, a 34-year-old legal secretary. She thought she was just having continual heavy periods, but instead she had cervical and endometrial cancer.


She had a family history of it. She was in a lot of pain. They said the words, “advanced tumors”. They didn't even know how far the cancer had gone. They thought it probably had metastasized to other organs. They wanted to go in there, clean her up, do some exploratory surgery and probably do some chemotherapy and radiation.


Fortunately, she saw the light. She did the full incurables program, the special douches and suppositories we'll discuss in a moment, and we doused her hormone system with special hormone-balancing herbs that we'll also discuss. The first thing we noticed was that the bleeding started subsiding and that's a good sign — because we weren't doing anything to stop the bleeding.


The next thing we knew, she was having less pain down there, because uterine cramps can be quite painful, and within about 30 days she had no bleeding, no discharge, no pain.


She was doing all the things to create circulation down there, castor oil packs, douches. We had to clean out her bowels, she had a lot of constipation and this is an important one here. The uterus is wrapped by the bowel. The sigmoid colon comes up one side, wraps around over the top, comes up and the rectum is right underneath.


We think about all our anatomy as separate parts, but they are all touching each other. The uterus is surrounded by the bowel. Imagine if you or the average person has five pounds of extra fecal matter and some diverticulosis herniation spilled with fecal matter. They are all going to be pressing, flattening, squeezing and prolapsing that uterus. So now you go to have a period, or whatever, and the uterus starts to swell, and you have a painful period.


“In 80% of the women who come in with painful periods, after we clean their bowels, their periods are fine.”


SCHULZE: You've got to give that uterus a little space and you might notice a difference now that your bowel is clean, because your sigmoid has probably crushed your uterus down to half its size. You might even notice some changes in the way you feel and your period or whatever.


Part of your low energy could just be that crushed uterus and the way your hormones are responding. But, anyway, we had to do some dramatic bowel cleaning on her, the whole bowel cleansing and liver programs.


In two months, she wanted to go back to the doctor. I fought with her and I fought with her. In three months, I couldn't stop her. She went back and they said they did not see any cancer. She had a discharge, a lot of that chunky liver stuff again.


“She brought chunks of the dead tumor to my office in canning jars. Her body had expelled it.”


BISER: Chunky what?


SCHULZE: It looks like liver. At first, she thought it was blood clots, but then we saw that there were actual tissues. She brought them into my office in a canning jar. We have a lot of canning jars of that stuff.


They were chunks of reddish-black tissue with whitish chunky material. It looked like peas inside of it.


It was the cancer sloughing off. Her body was rejecting it. So we really fired up the program. Three months later, she went back to the gynecologist and the gynecologist said that they could not see anything.


They said they could not see any cancer on the cervix or the uterus, but they said, “Hey, you probably still have it down in there. We need to no some biopsies.”


They just don't quit. They don't give up. Even when they see a healing, and even if they did the biopsies and saw that there was no cancer there, and that there was a total healing, they go, “Well, it must have been a misdiagnosis or a spontaneous remission.” They will not admit that cancer can go if you are not using radiation, chemotherapy, or surgery. In fact, they will never say you are healed of cancer.


The bottom line is that this was about four years ago. The woman has never had a problem since. Now she's staying on top of it, you know, keeping healthy.


She was a fairly healthy person, but obviously, I think a lot of these cervical cancers are caused by waste not getting out of the body. You know we have a cesspool that's clogged-up down there. It gets back to that bowel. Those diverticuli fill with fecal matter, and once they're in there for awhile, they begin to leak. This is called diverticulosis and then it infects all the tissue around it.


BISER: How bad was her cancer?


SCHULZE: It was a bad case. Her whole cervix and the lining of her uterus was involved. They felt that it had gone deep enough to invade other tissues. In other words, it had metastasized, maybe into her bowel. But she's fine now.


And here's another thing: she was a legal secretary, and what did she do? She sat all day long on her butt. And when you sit on your butt, you're sitting on your uterus. She wore typical office wear — nylon pantyhose. There's no air getting to this area. You're blocking the circulation. Pantyhose cut off lymph. They are a lymph-constrictor.


You know, we probably should go back, if women want, to the era of garter belts and silk stockings. It was certainly a more healthy thing to do. Use more natural fibers. Don't forget that pantyhose is made from petroleum. That's made from crude oil. i.e. gasoline. We're talking petrochemicals here, right next to our bodies.


Step one in curing cervical cancer: herbal suppositories.


SCHULZE: On this program, women alternate between two different kinds of natural suppositories. One is just a simple insertion of a garlic clove. The other is an herbal mixture you can make at home.


Usually what I have them do is garlic cloves for a week and then that suppository for about a week. Or they could do 6 days of garlic cloves, a day off, and then 6 days of the suppositories. They could also do a garlic on Monday, a suppository on Tuesday, a garlic on Wednesday: however they feel they would like to do it. But at least, get 6 of the garlic cloves in and 6 of the suppositories.


Let's start with the garlic instructions. The garlic is done in three stages. In the first stage (the first night), you simply insert the garlic. On the second night, you bruise it. On the third night and thereafter, you cut slices into the garlic. Each stage is more intense than the previous.


In the first stage, you take a large garlic clove, peel it and insert it into the vagina at night and pull it out in the morning. To remove it, you just stand up; it drops down and you pull out the garlic clove. Use a piece of garlic at least the size of your thumb. Then...


The second stage is to peel a big garlic clove, press on it, and bruise it. You bruise the garlic to activate a compound called allicin. The allicin in garlic does not exist unless you make it. In other words, there isn't any allicin in garlic to begin with.


There are only dry fiber cells and liquid acid cells. When you cut or crush garlic, the acid pours on the fiber and allicin is the result of that chemical reaction. What works in the garlic really isn't there until we chew it, or slice it, or bruise it. That is why garlic doesn't have much off a smell until you really activate it.


The allicin is created by the acid cells being ruptured and mixing with the fiber of garlic. It's an immediate chemical reaction and allicin is produced. That's why a fresh garlic clove doesn't have much smell. But when you chop it up, boom, you're creating chemistry in your kitchen. So press that garlic clove and bruise it and then insert it.


After bruising it, 99% of women won't notice any feeling in their vagina from the garlic. You put that in at night and it comes out in the morning.


The third day, bruise the garlic and make some actual lateral slices with a knife in the clove. Now you're creating more allicin. Some women when they insert that, will feel a slight tingling for the first 5 minutes, but nothing major. That's okay; it won't hurt them at all. If it's too extreme, you can pull it out and make less slices and less bruises. Put that in and leave it in all night; take it out in the morning.


Do this for 6 days and no bacteria, no fungus, no virus will be alive in your vaginal area. It will reduce the inflammation, and for those with cancer, we know that garlic destroys tumors.


A third of the research that's been done on garlic by medical institutes in the United States has been done with the treatment of cancer — but you'll never hear about it. All you have to do is slam your foot into the ground, dig a hole, throw a clove of garlic in there and boom, you have your own medicine. Garlic is an official drug in many countries of the world. It's listed in those countries' pharmacopoeia for the treatment of everything from heart disease to cancer.


A formula for vaginal suppositories.


SCHULZE: Here is a formula for a suppository. You customize it to your needs. In other words, if you have cancer, you add poke root to the suppository. If not, you can skip it.


We use it generally for vaginal infection, but all the way up to cancer of the cervix, endometrial cancer or whatever.


Here is what you will need:


Coconut oil
Tea tree oil
Goldenseal root
Yellow dock
Poke root
Cayenne pepper


I would put in a bowl an amount of finely powdered herbs. Finely is a key word, because if you have a rough herb in there, it's going to get stuck in your bottom. Use 2 heaping tablespoons of yellow dock and goldenseal, one of each, finely powdered into a bowl.


I would squirt into that, 4-6 dropperfuls of tea tree oil, which would be 150-200 drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is a multi-spectrum antibiotic and antifungal. It's an Australian shrub in oil form that is available commercially.


Then add enough coconut oil to turn it into a dry pie-dough consistency. Put the jar of coconut oil in a pot of warm water. Coconut oil at room temperature is solid, but when you warm it up, it becomes liquid.


If it's too wet, when you go to make suppositories, they turn into pancakes. You form them into 12 large or 24 medium suppositories. You put them on a glass plate and put them in the freezer.


If you have cancer and are using poke root powder, you could use equal parts of yellow dock and golden seal. You have to be really careful with fresh poke root. You grate it through a kitchen grater. It is going to be like a wet root. Most people will sell it in powder, and the powder is the least active but also the least acrid or burning.


When you take the suppositories out of the freezer, they will be-frozen. But when you hold onto them they will start melting, just from your body heat. Grease up your vaginal area first with a little olive oil acid then put the suppository in. You want to make sure you grease up first or it's a pretty rough ride.


The key is you want it to have a dry consistency and if you make it too wet, which everybody invariably does, just add more goldenseal and yellow dock. And if it's too dry, add more coconut oil. Just keep playing; with it, back and forth, until you get a dry pie dough consistency.


Now, if you want to add something that's a little more dramatic, you can even put a slight pinch of cayenne in there. This is a powerful herb for really stimulating the blood flow. Remember, if we don't get the blood there, we are not going to get the healing we want.


BISER: It's not going to burn their bottom?


SCHULZE: It won't do any damage, but it will be a little bit warm at first. I am talking about a very, very slight pinch here. And, if we want to, we can add just a drop or two of garlic oil.


BISER: If you have cancer, how long would you do it?


SCHULZE: The best way to do it is to put that suppository in at night, let it be in all night long. You need to wear a sanitary napkin. Anyone who has any vaginal problems should not use tampons.


Tampons are made with bleached paper; they are known to contain dioxin. Dioxin is carcinogenic. There's a lot of people who theorize that the high rate of cervical cancer is due to the bleaches on tampons. You ought to get rid of tampons and go to sanitary napkins. There are tampons available in the health food stores without bleached fibers.


BISER: What do you think of the herbal vaginal products that are sold commercially?


SCHULZE: I find that the formulas on the market are just too impotent. Most of them taste like they are burnt and smoked. You need to make your own at home.


For example, what happens is that they powder oak bark to make the formula. It's hard enough to cut oak; it will dull your cutting blades. Well, you can imagine powdering it. They end up burning the herbs, and when you burn the herbs, you might as well cook the herbs. I find that most of the vaginal bolus material out there has hardly any of the original healing chemicals left in it.


When they powder herbs on a commercial level, the machines are smoking. Most of the oak bark I get should be white in color or very light tan, yet a lot of it is darker brown and I can smell it. You can smell the herbs got burnt in the process of powdering.


BISER: Can a man put this suppository right up the rectum, because it would get close to the prostate?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. When you make a suppository, you make them different sizes and the general rule is to put them in any hole of the body you can get them into. You can put them in the ears, you can put them in the nose, you can put them anywhere.


BISER: Could a person who had genital cancer or something like that, put it on the outside as a kind of poultice?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I've done it hundreds of times.


Cleansing douches after using the vaginal bolus:


SCHULZE: In the morning, you'll notice a bit of that bolus is coming out. That's fine. Leave it in all day long; then in the evening you want to do a douche.


There's a couple of douches that are great to clean you all out. One of my favorites is a pint of water with a couple of tablespoons of fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice. You can also use a couple of tablespoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar. Spectrum Natural is an excellent brand.


BISER: So, the bolus is in at night?


SCHULZE: Yes, and then all day long you just leave it in and then later in the day you do that douche, clean it out, and then in the evening you put another bolus in. You do that for 6 days-a-week. Now this is a part of the entire incurables program.


Use the entire incurables program for advanced cervical cancer.


BISER: What about advanced cervical cancer, what do you do?


SCHULZE: Make sure that the person is doing the absolute, entire incurables program with the localized things down there, such as castor oil packs. You can even use castor oil mixed with other oils, about 25% castor oil with 75% olive oil; that is a douche, too. Work it right into the area. It won't hurt you.


Also, you need to balance the female hormones. There are three herbs I think are the greatest and there's a formula that I make which is clinically proven to be a woman’s saviour. It contains equal parts of each herb. The first herb is called wild yam.


Wild yam is what the pharmaceutical industry used to make progesterone from. But it got too expensive, so they make it from horse urine.


BISER: Is wild yam grown in the U.S.?


SCHULZE: Yes, in the U.S. it grows, and also in South and Central America and in Mexico.


The second herb is chaste tree, which is the herb of Europe. It's used for women's problems from PMS to menopause all over Europe. It's the berry of a tree.


The third herb is Angelica. In China, they call it Don Quai. It's also pronounced Tang Kwai. This is the number one-sold herb in the world. The Latin name is Angelica Sinensis. We have species, of Angelica that are very similar that grow in the United States.


So I use these three herbs in equal proportions, either as a tea, or as a tincture. This is an endocrine-balancer.


I've weaned every woman I've seen off of Premarin/Estrogen and Provera/Progesterone, and got them onto this formula with no hot flashes, no problems. Ninety percent of women can take a month, wean off their Premarin/Provera every day and work onto this formula and never have a bump. Ten percent of women have a little bump; you have to adjust the dosage.


BISER: How do you do this weaning process? Weaning a woman off her hormones...


SCHULZE: I like to look at, “What is the full dosage I want this woman to be on.” Usually, for any tincture, it would be two dropperfuls, 3 times a day.


Then, I look at, “What is the dosage of the medication they are taking now?” Let's say, just for ease of thought, it's 100 mg. In the first week, I take them down a quarter to 75 mg., and some people say, “How do you do that?”


I don't care...grind the capsules up, separate the powder with a razor blade and a mirror like a cocaine addict. Break the tablets up, anyway you can. Open the capsule, pour out the powder, divide off a quarter. We are not building a nuclear weapon here. It doesn't have to be that exact.


BISER: Anyway, for the readers, they have got to do that with their doctor's approval?


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. They knock of 25% of their pharmaceutical drug. Then they start out with one dropperful of the tincture, we will say, AM and PM. Then, the next week, they go down another quarter on the drug. So now they are down 50% and then they start taking one dropperful 3 times a day of the herbal tonic. Then, the next week they go down another 25% so they are on 25% of their original dosage of the pharmaceutical drug.


BISER: So in a 3-week-period, they are down to 25%.


SCHULZE: Yes. By the next week, they are gone off of it, and they are on two dropperfuls 3 times a day of the herbs.


Out-of-control medical emergency: vaginal hemorrhaging stopped by cayenne.


SCHULZE: I had a woman who was working with a colleague of mine on her cervical cancer. What happened was gory, and I think it occurred because he was being too aggressive with the patient, in massage and kneading the area, kind of like picking a scab on a wound.


It's something that never happened to me, but I want your readers to know how they can handle urgent situations with herbs.


She had a little bleeding, a little dark discharge, and everything was going great. Then I got a call about 5:00 at night. Her doctor said, “I have this woman in my office and I think she's bleeding to death.”


And I go, “What do you mean?” He said, “She's hemorrhaging.”


And I said, “Well, this is what 9-1-1 is for.” You know, 9-1-1 is for that half a percent of medicine when we are dying, when the leg is off on the other side of the freeway. And he says, “She won't go.”


And I said, “What do you mean, she won't go?”


“She said she would rather die than ever go to a doctor or hospital.” I understand that, I respect that, and he says, “Can you come over right away?” Now this is 5:00 in Los Angeles.


This is why I own a motorcycle, because that would take 3 hours to get to Burbank at 5:00. I got on that motorcycle, I white-lined it. I was probably there in 25 minutes.


He said, “Just come in, the door's open.” I open the front door and there's a pool of blood in the living room six foot in diameter— and he's got a sheet in it, because they tried to soak it up.


I go in the bathroom; she's sitting in the bathtub, and her face is white. She looks unconscious and she's naked in the bathtub.


They put her in the bathtub because she's bleeding, and there is blood streaming out her vagina going right down the drain. Okay, she's hemorrhaging.


I run to the kitchen to get my first-aid bag with me. I run some hot water right out of the tap into a pot. I throw a couple of handfuls of cayenne peppers in it.


I grab a turkey baster and just suck it up in there. I run into the bathroom, and I put the turkey baster right in her vagina and I give her a full cayenne douche. And the minute I did that, I saw her eyes light up. Of course, it must have been extremely painful.


“I gave her a shot of hot cayenne tea in her vagina. The bleeding stopped in two seconds.”


SCHULZE: Now she's still in shock from loss of blood, so the first thing I did was I took my cayenne tincture and gave her a big mouthful of it because when the face is white, get the cayenne in the body.


Her face turned red and I thought, “Okay, she's going out of shock. She's looking better.” She's had loss of blood. The bleeding stopped within 20 seconds.


BISER: I thought you said two seconds.


SCHULZE: Two seconds for the bleeding here, but within 20 seconds her face was red, and she looked back to normal. I thought, “We've got to get some nutrition into her.” She's lost a lot of blood so we mixed some superfood with some juice and got it in her.


And she took it down, looked at me and vomited it all over me. It was like the movie, “The Exorcist.” So I took the cayenne tincture out and gave it to myself, because I was starting to feel a little sick. I gave her a little more cayenne tincture.


What came out of her vagina, not only in the blood, but the drain got clogged, because there were these chunks of, like, liver and flesh. This wasn't blood clots, these were fleshy parts.


She collected them, put them into a canning jar, took them to her holistic doctor, and he said it was cancer. These were pieces of cancer that had come out of her body. This was what I might say an extreme healing crisis.


She and her doctor were doing work that was probably a little too far, they weren't letting nature do it. As I said earlier, they were pushing it a little, almost like picking a scab, if I might say.


You just have got to let nature do its job. And they were going beyond that. Pushing too hard. A lot of this comes down to common sense, and they weren't using it.


Now this was twelve years ago, and that woman is a school teacher, alive, well, I'm going to say 65 years old.


Okay, you know, people are always saying, “You could have been sued; she could have died.” They always say, “Don't you think that was a bit much? The cayenne douche?” The woman doesn't think it was a bit much. Okay, I don't know anybody out there who would suggest filling a turkey baster; it's a non-sterile instrument. That's all I hear.


The bottom line is this woman is as happy as a clam; she will never go see a doctor now and all these natural healers are just paranoid. They're wimps.


BISER: These were not chunks of liver coming out of the woman — it was a lot of cancer?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: I thought cancer was white, but it's brown?


SCHULZE: Most of the cancers I see have brown on them. They also have sometimes little balls in there. Sometimes they have white strands that are stringy.


Sometimes they are like larger, saucer-kind-of-shaped, like a classic flying saucer, but with tentacles on them.


BISER: And you've seen that coming out of the uterus?


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. Coming right out of the vagina.


People need to be educated, because this is what doctors see all the time, but they don't tell anyone. They wrap it up, put it away, put it in the dumpster, and say, “You're fine, Mrs. Jones.” You know what I'm saying?


BISER: If you don't tell stories like this, then when something happens, a person could just pass out, out of fear.


SCHULZE: Oh, they call 9-1-1. They think this must be something unique. I must be dying, whatever. Dr. Christopher knew all this.


He knew that when you went to people's houses, you had to get down and dirty, you had to get your hands dirty. If someone was constipated, you might have to stick your ringer up their butt and pull the fecal matter out.


You might have to get your hands up their vagina, put your hands down their throat, up their nose, get yourself covered with urine, fecal, matter, and vomit.


BISER: What's better...seeing a woman naked or seeing a woman dead?


SCHULZE: I know. This is what I'm saying. If you're going to deal with natural healing, you have to be able to work with your daughter, your wife, your son, your husband. You know what I'm saying? This brings a family together. What can I say? I mean we are all humans; we're saving people's lives here. You can't be afraid of a little fecal matter.


“When you get stronger, disease will jump out of your body.”


BISER: If people are going to do this at home, they need to know what to expect or they will pass out with a heart attack seeing this stuff! You'll think you’ll have to go to a doctor, because this is abnormal.


SCHULZE: No, it's absolutely normal and I always see it with cervical and endometrial cancer. These tumors come out in parts. They don't all just pop out at once.


I have seen an elongated tumor that came out of the uterus that I thought was part of the uterus wall. It was like the whole side of the uterus, I mean, this woman thought she was doomed, but she was being cured.


The body knows how to do everything.


It knows how to do surgery, it knows how to dissolve tumors, and it will do it the most efficient and best way.


We have lost our trust in God and in nature, but they will cure us.



Chapter 17:  Breast Cancer


Follow-up on the 75-year-old woman with horrible breast cancer — from videotape Volume Ten.


This case was covered briefly on the videotape. It was the case of a woman who did not want surgery, because at her age; the operation could kill her.


It was the worst case of breast cancer that Dr. Richard Schulze had ever seen. On the videotapes, Dr. Schulze described the special poultices he uses to cure breast cancer. Here is what happened as the woman began her natural healing programs.


The details that follow are gory. So what? Would you rather die on a sanitary and sterile sheet as the heart monitor goes into a flatline, or would you rather excrete some disturbing wastes and dead cancer cells — and then live happily ever after?


Cancer had destroyed her breast. The tumor was like an alien donut attached to her chest. In the center was a huge hole that went almost down to her bones.


SCHULZE: The tumor on her breast started peeling off a couple of weeks after we started.


Corners of it started coming up and separating from the rest of her breast. You have to imagine there was no nipple anymore, and on the end of her breast, it looked like this alien donut had attached to it. This is gross, but this is the best way that I can describe it. It almost looked like a ring sausage.


Around the edges where she pulled on it, it would bleed.


It would hurt quite a bit. I said, “We'll just keep putting the poultice on it. Hang in there.” Then it really started getting very loose. Corners of it started detaching, and it got to the point where half of it was not attached. Where it did come off, there were little tentacles, kind of like white, sinewy tissue that went from this ring sausage down into her breast, and then, eventually, she kept working it and working it.


Then it was three quarters off; then just barely hanging on and then...she wanted to go to the surgeon because it got so disgusting. And I said, “No!”, because she wanted to cut into it, and cut the majority of it off. And I said, “No, just hang in there.”


I said, “Keep the poultices on it.” She did, and finally the whole thing came off. She pulled it a little bit prematurely, there was a little bit of excess bleeding. But you know, we used a lot of cayenne with her for the bleeding. You know she had a gaping hole when this came off.


BISER: Did it go almost to the bone?


SCHULZE: I felt it did. Her breast was, we might say, an average size, well maybe even a medium size or a little bit bigger breast. And you could have fit your fist inside it; it was that much tissue gone. But it eventually all came back with the poultices.


BISER: It grew back in?


SCHULZE: Oh yea. She has some scar tissue on there and her nipple does not exist.


BISER: The body did not regrow it?


SCHULZE: Her nipple is just like scar tissue over that area. It looks better than any mastectomy I've seen. The greatest thing is she knows that she did her healing. This was probably the worst gigantic tumor I’ve seen. It looked like the sausage my parents bought, we called it liver sausage. It was horrible stuff, but it came in kind of a ring.


BISER: If she had gone to the surgery they could have gotten the tumor out right?


SCHULZE: Yea, they would have gotten the tumor out. They probably would have cut out some of her lymph glands and everything would have probably been the same and a lot less, we might say, trauma and drama for her. The problem is, every time that happens, the next thing you know the cancer comes back in the other breast or in the uterus.


This way, at least she knew she killed the cancer. She was doing all the internal cleansing routines and everything to make her body reject the cancer.


All the tissue regrew in her breast. It filled in. You know, her breast is smaller on that side. It's not as big as the other one.


Regrowing a breast that has been disfigured by a tumor.


BISER: What poultices caused the regrowing?


SCHULZE: We used a lot of aloes, a lot of the same type of poultices, slippery elm and aloe. In fact, before the tumor was gone, the regrowing had already taken place.


When I first saw her, she had this donut that had formed. In the center where the hole was, it almost went all the way back to her rib. That is my guess. I didn't put my finger inside, but I could see the depth went back to her ribs.


But, by the time the donut came off, that had all filled in, for the most part. In fact, when it came off she almost looked like she had a normal breast, but with a round circle of tissue gone on it, if that makes sense. There wasn't that much to fill in by the time the tumor actually came off.


BISER: When it came off what did it look like?


SCHULZE: This one looked reddish. You know, it looked, if you can imagine, like an arm without skin. There wasn't any skin on this tumor. It was like a skinned human being. It looked like a stick of pepperoni or something like that. But not as red; it was more white with red in it. There was a lot of pus on it, and blood. And there were a few, very coarse black hairs on the tumor.


There was some bleeding out of that hole in the center and even around the edges. She worried about the bleeding a little bit, because at some points she was just running blood. Of course, you use cayenne internally and cayenne on the area.


My experience has been that cayenne, on a bleeding breast, just really doesn't burn like you think it would.


SCHULZE: Garlic will take you to your knees. But cayenne, I've used it a lot of bleeding.


I think I may have mentioned that when my wife gave birth to Arthur, she actually ruptured a vein. She was hemorrhaging quite severely. She bled a steering-wheel-size puddle of blood in less than a minute. That's a pretty good amount of blood; a pint we'd say.


I just took about 5 dropperfuls of cayenne tincture and squirted that right inside her vagina and all around her vaginal lips and everything. It went to a trickle in seconds and stopped in probably four seconds. She actually had a torn vein that split. Cayenne never fails; it works so fast.


A young woman cured of breast cancer in ten days.


BISER: Please give me some more details on the woman you mentioned on the videotapes who got rid of a tumor in days.


SCHULZE: Sure. Marianne was about 23 years old. She came to me with a malignant tumor in her left breast.


I'm going to say golf-ball size. She'd gone to three surgeons and all three surgeons at independent hospitals suggested a mastectomy. They said minimum a full mastectomy and one suggested a radical, including taking out some of the lymph nodes and muscle.


BISER: And how close was she to surgery?


SCHULZE: Days. They wanted to schedule her for two or three days, and I said, “Let's go to work.”


She was an absolute perfect patient. She worked hard, 19 hour-day, and in six or seven days, she noticed she could hardly feel the lump.


She went back to the doctors, and they said it was 50% reduced, but they did not change their diagnosis. They said sometimes these things go up and down. She came back home and worked even harden and it was 10 days when she finally went back, and they absolutely could not find it whatsoever in her breast. It was gone, period. And that was the end of that story.


Sometimes breast cancers dissolve internally. Sometimes they come out through the breast.


BISER: Richard, how often do you see breast cancers when they come out through the breast? Is that very rare?


SCHULZE: No, it's not rare at all. If I had to put an estimate on it, I would say 50-50. It seems as though half the time they can go right through the system and about half the time they don't.


This is true even though I do the same poultice on all of them whether they're coming out or not. What you're doing is just stimulating the body and the circulation in any way you can.


BISER: If the women weren't going to you, would the tumor come out of the breast anyway, as part of the disease?


SCHULZE: Yes, sometimes it comes right out through the body, regardless. The problem is, if they don't do the natural treatment, it doesn't separate from the body. It doesn't come off.


BISER: You mean it stays there and just continues to grow?


SCHULZE: There are people who have lived decades with malignant tumors hanging out of their breast. But these tumors will come to the surface and just be there. They'll even split the skin and come right out, but they tend not to come off. That's one of the biggest differences. They tend not to slough off or pop out of the body, unless you're doing something to make that happen.


How large can breast tumors get?


BISER: Have you ever seen breast tumors that are so big inside that they've filled up most of the breast?


SCHULZE: Oh, I've seen them when they came out; there was nothing left of the breast much besides skin. I've seen them that big.


BISER: So the breast had turned into one big tumor.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. What happens is that the cancer feeds off the healthy tissue and so the entire breast has become the tumor.


So when it comes off, I would say that maybe 10% of the breast is left, but very little. But what I find very interesting is after a period of time, certainly there's scarring where this has happened, but after time, it turns into more of a dimple there and the breast fills back out.


I mean, it's quite impressive. I've seen many women, after this has happened, where the majority of their breast tumor came out. What you see now is a deflated breast. Then, as 6-8 months go by, their breast returns to almost normal with, like, a little dimple in it.


How to cause a ravaged breast to regrow.


BISER: What are you giving them that makes it come back?


SCHULZE: Well, the main thing is really taking very good care of themselves. The key is not stopping their work on the breast. In other words, it's interesting how the same herbs have different effects on the breast depending on whether the tumor is still there or not.


The herbs that you put on the breast will pull the tumor out and remove it from the body.


But...when there's no cancer on the breast, they don't do anything. This is one thing that's so fantastic about herbs. The same herbs that will just cause dramatic removal of a cancer in your breast, once the cancer's gone — they won't do anything.


And so, you just keep using them until you're absolutely, positively sure that's everything's gone.


And then, you still continue your massage, your hydrotherapy, and, of course, this brings the blood and the new tissue to grow. The same programs that will destroy and remove the tumor also heal and regrow the breast.


A lot of people quit as soon as the tumor is out — and that's a big mistake.


BISER: Is there anything special that will make it grow. The aloe?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. A big key is nutrition. Making sure you've got that juicer going.


BISER: Do you ever use carrot juice compresses on the breast, or anything like that?


SCHULZE: Well, yes, I used everything. What I always tell people is that when you make juice in the juicer, the pulp that comes out, put that on your body. Put back a little juice on it just to moisten it.


BISER: So you even have them put that on their breast?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Carrot juice, wheat grass juice, apple juice, everything, why not? Don't throw it away. You get nutrition through that. These things are soothing to the skin, cleansing, and detoxifying.


BISER: Does poke root burn the skin once the cancers gone?


SCHULZE: Not really. You'd have to grate the fresh poke root, and use it fresh, to get the skin to burn.


And still, it won't burn healthy tissue that much. You can put poke root, garlic, whatever on a healthy breast and it just won't have that big a response. You'd have to put a lot on in a concentrated way to hurt healthy tissue.


These herbs scavenge cancer and go in and eat up the unhealthy tissue of your body, but when you're well, they just become very benign in their action. I've seen this a hundred times and it's quite impressive.


BISER: How do you know when a tumor is going to come loose?


SCHULZE: It's like a loose baby tooth. You don't really want to pull it off too soon.


You keep on applying these herbs and it'll keep loosening and loosening and, eventually, with a little bit of help (there's no doubt about it, sometimes you've got to do a little bit of pulling and tugging) you get a good sense of the feeling of when that time is.


You just play with it. You get a sense of time of when you can just yank it out. They get very loose and you can just yank them out. Usually when that happens, there's definitely some trauma to the area. Keep the cleansing herbs going on, but you can start adding some soothing especially aloe. Comfrey is also excellent and you can even get into poultices and pack the area with comfrey, aloe and slippery elm.



Chapter 18:  Brain Cancer


To begin this chapter, I include more information on a case of inoperable brain cancer mentioned on the videotapes, Volume Ten, Section #45. This man collapsed daily from seizures caused by the tumor. He followed the methods given on the tapes and supplemented in this chapter, and he completely recovered.


Doctors said, “Go home and enjoy what little is left of your life.” But he recovered, and if you have brain cancer, you can too.


SCHULZE: His tumor...I saw the x-rays and CAT-Scans on this. I'm going to say it was the size of a quarter. It was round like a walnut. It was in the center of his brain, and so inoperable, they couldn't get to it.


BISER: They couldn't operate?


SCHULZE: No, they said it would kill him to operate.


BISER: And they couldn't do radiation?


SCHULZE: They didn't want to. They knew the damage that would be done, with no possibility of a cure, so they said, “Go home and enjoy what little is left of your life.” He was a 35-year-old marketing executive.


He used to just fall down and have two grand-mal seizures a day. He was just covered with cuts and bruises.


BISER: From falling down?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Well, you know, he couldn't do his marketing work anymore. Obviously, you can't walk into people's offices and have a seizure, so he didn't have any money.


His father put him to work just doing odds and ends. His father was a painter. And this patient went up on scaffolding about 20 feet in the air, had a seizure up there and slid all the way down onto the ground and was lying in the snow.


That's when his father called me. He'd heard about me and sent him out to California.


I picked him up in a car once and, as I was driving, he started having a seizure. His body was straightening up and then relaxing, kind of like straightening and relaxing. Each time he'd straighten, he went all the way up against the roof of the car into the steel. I thought he was going to put his head through the roof of the car. I mean, it was just I thought he was going to break his neck, or have a concussion.


BISER: How long before there was any relief?


SCHULZE: I'm going to say within the first to second week. But he was a good patient. I mean, he stopped eating all animal products, got the juicer out, did juice fasting. We put him on large doses of the nervine herbs.


BISER: What do you mean large doses?


SCHULZE: I'm going to say four dropperfuls of tincture six times a day. At first, we put him on the nerve sedative ones. We put him on lobelia and a lot of lobelia, and Dr. Christopher's B & B, which is blue cohosh, black cohosh and lobelia. You can add skullcap and blue vervain, but it's not necessary. The main ones are black cohosh and lobelia. It's a classic. By the way, when I say B & B Tincture, I recommend you make it at home in your kitchen. The commercial sources I have seen have been weak.


BISER: What did you emphasize first?


SCHULZE: The first thing was changing his diet. It was loaded with Coca-Cola, sugar, and animal food. He had severe hemorrhoids because he was so constipated. So, we did bowel work to get that bowel clean, stopped the bad foods and then we went into the black cohosh and the blue cohosh and lobelia in large doses. And, at the same time, I weaned him off the Dilantin, the anti-seizure drug.


BISER: Did the lobelia and the skullcap help get him off that?


SCHULZE: There's no question about it.


BISER: What did you do to start getting at that tumor?


SCHULZE: Nothing really. The first thing I was concerned with was just getting him to stop the seizures, because I thought he was going to kill himself.


When he was in public and had a seizure, they'd call the paramedics. The paramedics would take him to the hospital. You know, it was just this horrendous routine, and he was beat up from head to foot. He was black and blue. And, of course, these weren't what are called petite-mal seizures where you have a little blackout.


These are what are called grand-mal seizures, where your body becomes rigid, you foam at the mouth, you bite your tongue off, you lose bladder and bowel control. Every time you have a grand-mal seizure, they think that you might lose a little bit of your brain tissue. It's that dramatic.


And so, his blackout periods were getting worse and worse. His memory was going, his brain was checking out. And so my main concern at first was, “We've got to get his body cleaned out, but also get these seizures under control.”


BISER: Did you start compresses immediately on his skull?


SCHULZE: Yes, everything. I think the first thing we did on his skull was we used the same, the black and blue cohosh and lobelia. We had him on those herbs and he was putting them in his ear with cotton and he was also putting them in fomentations over the head.


BISER: Did you do that 24 hours a day?


SCHULZE: In the evening — at bedtime. You know, one of the big things I have to say with him was that he stopped work.


Most people in this situation can't take any more stress. You know what I told him? I said, “Sit and watch the grass grow.” These people need to de-stress at a maximum level immediately. They can't have any more stress for awhile. These types of people don't know how to relax.


Within a week, he didn't have any seizures and he was still on the Dilantin. He was on the Dilantin before and he was still having seizures. We started a weaning-down process on the Dilantin. We knocked the dose down quite quickly and I'm going to say in 30 days he was off the Dilantin and on the herbs. With his new program, he became a complete vegetarian, started exercising moderately, cleaned his bowel out, because he had a lot of constipation.


BISER: That's where he was in a month — no seizures?


SCHULZE: No seizures. And now, this is 12 years later, and he has not had his brain reCAT-scanned. I don't suggest people go back and get MRIs and CAT-scans. His Dad just sent me a letter to say that he had had another child.


“I lost a 4-year-old with brain cancer because the parents did the incurables program but wouldn't take the child the drug Decadron.”


SCHULZE: This boy had all the side effects, and the swelling got out of control with the edema. These are all things caused by the drug.


BISER: The parents weren't making the natural healing commitments?


SCHULZE: No, it's tough. It's a tough place to be, because your child's life is in your hands. But I would suggest people either go to the route of the medical doctors, or go the route of natural healing, but don't try to do both. They don't complement each other.


BISER: Richard, that's the mistake of natural healing today. They want to get along with medicine, so they call it 'complementary medicine’. It's less offensive.


SCHULZE: Yes, that's what they're doing in England. They call it 'complimentary medicine', like we're complimenting medical doctors? Give me a break! What I am teaching your readers cures what doctors cannot. That's not complementary: That's a replacement.


You can use a clay poultice to draw poisons out of the brain.


Another type of poultice we haven't mentioned elsewhere is a clay poultice on the skull. Clay has strong drawing powers to pull out poisons.


In England, in areas of clay; there’s still radiation from Chernobyl that the clay has pulled into itself. You would use the Aztec Bentonite clay mentioned in the chapter on tinctures and poultices.


“The woman had a brain tumor, but the natural healers were wimping around, so I stepped everything up.”


The case given below demonstrates how Richard Schulze changes the treatments even by regular natural healers. Typical healers play around with critical conditions. They seem afraid to charge in with more intensity and higher dosages, as if they might hurt someone who is going to die anyway. In the following conversation. Richard Shulze is referring to a woman patient at a clinic in England, where he was recently teaching.


SCHULZE: I trained 16 professionals this morning on a woman with a 2 centimeter brain tumor that is pressed on her auditory nerve. She can't hear now out of her left ear.


BISER: What were the doctors doing in her case?


SCHULZE: Not much of anything. The doctors suggested to carve it out, of course, but said there was a great chance she would lose her hearing, and maybe even have brain damage and paralysis.


BISER: What about the natural healers?


SCHULZE: The natural healers were not doing enough. They hadn't turned the volume up enough.


BISER: OK what were they doing and what were they not doing?


SCHULZE: They weren't talking about her work environment. I discovered she works in a dry-cleaning factory. You can't get rid of a tumor when you're inhaling dry-cleaning fluid all day long. But nobody wanted to say that to her because that, makes it very uncomfortable. I also took a look at other things in her life, because they had written down on her chart that she was a strict vegetarian.


By the time I got done with her. I realized she was on steak one night a week, pork one night a week, chicken one night a week, fish one night a week and eggs one night a week, and that was kind of the vegetarian that she was. And, of course, to have good circulation, you can't be eating that much animal fat. And there were dozens of things that everybody had missed.


BISER: And what about herbs? Puny doses?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely (laugh).


BISER: What were they giving been giving her...tiny little bits of cayenne?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. We’re talking drops, like 5 drops in water.


BISER: That's the cayenne tincture, right? Instead of 60 drops?


SCHULZE: Yes, exactly. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, a little ginko and that's about it. I took what they had suggested for the whole day, of all the herbs, and that's what we used in the first hour. That was her dosage.


BISER: And you were going to give her how many of those dosages?


SCHULZE: Oh, 6 or 8 in that day.


BISER: What did they say when you did that? That it's too much?


SCHULZE: Yeah, and I asked them, "When was the last time they saw anybody hurt by taking too much cayenne, ginger, ginkgo, garlic or red clover?” None of those herbs are toxic. You can't take too many of them.


BISER: But they did tell you that's too much. Richard?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Yes, but see again, my reputation over here is that I get people well.


Today is the first day we are working on her. I got her juice fasting immediately. We have her doing hot and cold showers on the head and ear. We have deep tissue repair oil around her ear, neck and skull. I've got people doing body work on her ear and her head. She's also working on her psychotherapy right now, changing her emotions, you know. She doesn't know what hit her. She thinks she's being run over by a natural healing truck.



Chapter 19:  Prostate Cancer


In this chapter, we give additional information not covered on the videotapes. Together, the tapes and manual give you the full picture.


“The man's prostate was so encased by the tumor that doctors couldn't even see it. The tumor was wrapped around the gland.”


SCHULZE: This is why they had done an MRI. They were afraid if they started digging in there they would not only have to remove the entire prostate, but redesign and manufacture at least the urethra tube and remanufacture the bladder.


Sometimes they have to remove the whole bladder, and it's like you have stripped a person of their urinary tract. And you have to start over. This patient did not relish the idea of that at all. The man was an engineer in his early fifties.


BISER: How long did they give him if he didn't take care of it?


SCHULZE: No time at all. They said it would spread and metastasize. It could be only a matter of months before he was dead. What they suggested was a complete removal of the prostate, the tumor, the urethra and most likely the bladder. One thing this guy had going for him is he was very healthy. It sounds crazy but he did a lot of 10 kilometer races.


He was thin and was not overweight. This can be very deceiving, because he was a very big meat eater. Lots of red meat, lots of animal products and smokes a little bit. Even though he exercised, he still had a few cigarettes here and there. He had a cholesterol level of around 300.


At the same time, he had the kind of dedication that sometimes you get with runners. He was willing to do anything, “Tell me the program; I'll do it.” He was a good patient. He did everything. He did the rectal suppositories, the boluses we mentioned in connection with cervical cancer, and garlic, rectally, to work on that area because garlic will penetrate through the wall of the rectum and go right into that area. He did a lot of bowel cleansing.


Garlic implants for prostate cancer.


BISER: What kind of suppositories did he use?


SCHULZE: Mainly the garlic implant. He did a lot of garlic implants. He just took a garlic clove, peeled it and bruised it, and inserted it into has rectum.


BISER: One at a time?


SCHULZE: Once a day he put a garlic clove in.


Hot and cold castor oil packs for prostate or other cancers.


SCHULZE: He was constantly doing the colon-cleansing herbs. He dad the total incurables program, and did castor oil packs between the anus and the testicles, over that whole area. The first thing he noticed was that the tumor did not shrink in size, but it softened. It was very, very hard and, of course, this is what castor oil does.


He did the castor oil fomentations hot, but then cold in-between.


BISER: Say that again. What do you mean, castor oil hot and then cold in-between?


SCHULZE: If you put a castor oil fomentation on, you can just put that on the body and put the hot water bottle over it and keep it hot.


But, if you really want to activate the area, put a hot castor oil pack on for 10 minutes, pull it off, put an ice bag on there for 5 or 10 minutes, pull that off, and put the hot castor oil pack back on.


With the prostate, you really need to increase the circulation. It's at the bottom of the pelvis. That area can get stagnant, especially if you have a constipated bowel and all of that. That area really just gets very shut off. He had hemorrhoids, too, and he used to put the heating balm on his hemorrhoids. He had to be a bit brave to do that —  because it's an ointment made with cayenne. But that really stimulates the blood flow. [The formula for this cayenne ointment, now in oil form, is given in the chapter on arthritis.]


BISER: So the cancer softened?


SCHULZE: Yea, it softened, but it didn't shrink. And it got softer and softer and softer, but it still didn't shrink in size. He had gone back to the doctors, and the doctors were saying. “You are just letting it get bigger.”


He felt really good about the changes. It had felt like a baseball; it was that hard. And now it was starting to feel like a soft rubber ball. Same size. He just kept up using the incurables program. He was really into it.


He was really into the treadmill. I would say that it was about 4 months, 3 1/2 to 4 months into the program, when he said...he was doing a lot of his own massages too. Really working that area, stimulating that area. He was starting to say, “It's feeling very spongy. I think it's starting to get smaller and breakup. And, sure enough, I would say by 6 months, it was about 50% reduced in size.


BISER: Did you ever do the poke root poultices on it?


SCHULZE: Yea, absolutely. Everybody does that.


Hot and cold enemas.


BISER: How often compared to the castor oil?


SCHULZE: I think he did the castor oil on alternating nights. Castor oil one night with the hot and cold routine, the next night a poultice. He was even doing some extreme-temperature enemas to stimulate circulation that way.


BISER: What do you mean? Ice cold enemas?


SCHULZE: Not ice cold, but very cold.


BISER: And then he did hot enemas?


SCHULZE: Warmer than body temperature, like 103 degrees.


BISER: How long for each one?


SCHULZE: Just quickly putting the cold enema in, holding it for about a minute, letting it out, putting the hot enema in. That is a great way to stimulate blood flow.


He was very dedicated, and, of course, juice fasting is dramatic. That is one of the powers of the beginning of the incurables program, the 30 days of juice fasting. It's dramatic what can happen during that time. The tumor softened up. It got smaller, but his prostate still felt enlarged.


Over about 10 months, he couldn't feel anything there anymore. He was having constant PSA tests, and his PSA tests were very elevated. His oncologist finally started saying, “Hey, whatever you are doing, go with it,” because his PSA level was dropping.


When he started out, it was, I'm going to say 5,000. It was incredibly high. I think what is considered normal is 4. You don't hear of many cases of people with a PSA test that high. It started going down .and fluctuated up and down, but it was gradually, over a period of time, going lower.


When it got to about, I'm going to say 500, the oncologist finally had to say, “Look, I don't know what you are doing, but whatever you are doing, you are headed in the right direction.”


The PSA, eventually; absolutely normalized. The man never let them do any more invasive work, and he is alive and well now. Has no pain or sensation there at all, and I think his PSA count is like 3 or 4, right down into the normal range.


BISER: Did the doctors say thing significant or just dumb stuff?


SCHULZE: The doctor confided with him at some point, and said something like, “If I were you, I may have done the same thing.”


The surgery would have been so invasive. No man likes the idea of getting cut between the testicles and the rectum and having large amounts of flesh removed. You end up having colon surgery, and you could have had a perfectly healthy colon. That is a horrible thought. That has been done to many people. Even the oncologist at one point said something like, “More power to you.”


I've never met an oncologist who has sat down and said, “Wow, this program worked.” They just think you are lucky, that you are one of the lucky ones who went into remissions. They absolutely do not believe in the power of these programs. Doctors have no training at all in the body's ability to heal itself from degenerative disease.


It must have been a year later when he went off his program and diet and slipped back. Sure enough, he felt something down there again. He felt some twinges, some sharp pain. He had to get back in alignment with his program.


This is very common with people with cancer. Cancer comes and goes. People who have cancer have to know that, so they can monitor that area. It didn't necessarily mean that he had cancer again, but there was inflammation in the prostate. He just had to snap to it, and get right back on track.


This was quite a few years ago, I'm going to say 5 or 6 years ago. He has never had any problems since. He isn't on the incurables program, but he doesn't eat meat anymore, either.


“I've had prostate cases where you can't detect that there is a tumor. The patient doesn't feel one, but they are peeing blood. They are just filling the toilet with blood.”


BISER: You mean instead of pee, it's blood?


SCHULZE: It isn't quite full blood, like if you just pee total blood, but it doesn't take much blood in the urine for it to turn real red.


BISER: Why the blood?


SCHULZE: Because the tumor has broken into the urethra tube, and is leaking in there. So, they are hemorrhaging and they are urinating blood. This is a horrible sign, because now you have infection and cancer and everything else going back up into your bladder. The integrity of your urethra tube is gone.


I've seen blood coming out the rectum, pus coming out the rectum, and even discharges of material tissue out of the rectum. Again, all this anatomy is connected, and the prostate is touching the rectal wall. When an organ gets diseased enough, it tries to get that material out of there. If the prostate can't get its material out through the normal channels — through your colon, your blood stream, your kidneys, whatever — then it will push it right into the rectum.


I had one man who was in agonizing pain with his prostate cancer. I find that with many people, the agonizing cancer pain is gone within 7 days on the incurables program, usually less. This is something they never believe me on until they see it happen.


BISER: Not even pain herbs —just the program.


SCHULZE: No, not even pain herbs. Most people, I would say, the average would be 4 days, but it's a guarantee within 7 days. The pain of that cancer is going to be gone or so far reduced they are not going to need to take the morphine. This man was on morphine 3, 4. 5 times a day. And he was off his morphine in less than a week. [Editor’s note: More on pain in our chapter on pain.]


BISER: How bad was his prostate cancer, at its worst?


SCHULZE: His prostate cancer was malignant. He had no major outward signs of swelling that he could feel and/or he wasn't urinating blood, but he was in extreme pain. Obviously it had affected some nerve endings. He was in drastic pain in the genitals.


Of course, he had numerous warning signs. No one wakes up one day with cancer that he hasn't ignored. When it finally set in, this man was in drastic pain. This is the one thing that is so powerful about the incurables program. I've had people with liver cancer on morphine 4 or 5 times a day with liquid morphine — and I got them off.


“When a doctor prescribes morphine for you, and you have cancer, if he hasn't said so, that means he knows you are dead.”


BISER: So, if doctors give you morphine 4 or 5 times a day, they do not think you are going to get better?


SCHULZE: Yea. They do not prescribe morphine to people they are going to do surgery, chemotherapy, radiation on. They give it after all hope is gone and they have failed.


When the doctor gives you the big bottle of morphine liquid and says, “You can get all the refills you want,” he knows you are not going to be around too long. He is not worried about you becoming a junkie.


What I've always seen is a drastic and dramatic reduction in the amount of morphine — if not totally off. I would say 7 out of 10 of my patients in the first week are totally off the morphine. They are amazed.


The body is starting to applaud your efforts. For maybe the first time in your life, you've added all these wonderful things that are helping. You have taken the pressure off.


When you stop eating, you have so much more energy. Sixty percent of the body's energy, or more, is used to digest food. Three meals a day. You stop that, and all that energy can go to heal you. Boost your immune system. Eat up cancer tumors. It's dramatic. His pain was gone in less than a week.


BISER: Did his cancer go into remission?


SCHULZE: Yes, his cancer was a pretty quick I said, he had no tumor, palpable tumor, that he noticed. He was just in extreme pain.


They did a biopsy again. In fact, he was in worse pain after they did the biopsy. They said that he had malignant cancer of the prostate, and he was in and out of my office, I'm going to say for 3 months. He did the incurables program.


He didn't even stay on it the full 30 days, I think he was good for about 20 days, and then he had some pasta or something, and I yelled at him. I kept getting him back into alignment, but he felt good; it was hard to keep him on track. He was off the morphine, his pain was gone, and he had a couple of PSA tests, and then gave up on his doctors — which is what so many people do.


BISER: Have you ever bad prostate tumors that came out through the skin?


SCHULZE: No. I've never had them come through.


They are usually pretty encapsulated. They get big, and you can feel them in the rectum, inside the rectum. You can have pain there, and you can even feel them when they are bulging out in-between the testicles and the anus.


They will bulge out, but I've never had anything come or break through the skin. I think it's because the prostate is a gland; it's very encapsulated. It's a very muscular gland.


BISER: You never see pieces of the tumor come out?


SCHULZE: No. All the people who I have had with prostate cancer just kind get circulation going, it dissolves. Some of the people who were peeing blood have urinated out some pretty horrible-looking stuff. A lot of pus.


Richard Schulze's Prostate Formula


BISER: Have you ever put poke root just inside the rectum?


SCHULZE: No, but it's not a bad idea. I've put the poultices on usually between the testicles and the anus, castor oil there, too.


I also use a prostate formula for these men. The formula is:


four parts Saw Palmetto berry

one part Cleaver's herb

one part Nettle root — not leaf

one part Thuja leaf


Mix all these herbs together as a tea, and add a couple of squirts, 70 drops, of my kidney/bladder tonic. [This is the formula given in the chapter on kidney problems.]


You take this as a tea and take six cups per day. If you can't get any of these herbs, use saw palmetto as a tea and add kidney/bladder tonic and drink 3-6 cups per day. The saw palmetto tea tastes pretty strong.


Thuja is a quite-famous blood-cleansing herb that has been used throughout American history. It's quite famous with the old, eclectic doctors. It's really out of vogue with a lot of the new herbalists. For the old herbalists, it was one of their most popular blood cleansers. It's a conifer. Like a pine tree. And I like to use it as a blood cleanser, and I've seen it work really well with people.


Incorrect diagnosis of prostate problems.


SCHULZE: So many people come to me who are diagnosed incorrectly. I have men come to me who say, “My doctor says my prostate is enlarged and I have a PSA count of about 10 and that's abnormal.”


The patient is told to have a major biopsy, but if not, have their prostate reamed out, and maybe even removed.


I said to one such man, “What was your PSA count last year?”, and he said, “I don't know, I never had one before.”


And I said, “What was the size of your prostate last year?”, and he said, “I don't know; I never had it checked.”


Well then, how do they know that it's enlarged? And how do they know that his PSA count is elevated for him. They are comparing him to Gray's Anatomy. And we don't all fit that. You must use your own point of reference — not the normal American's.


So, if you walk into a hospital, if the two of us were to go into a hospital right now, run all the tests, we'd all be scheduled for some procedure.


You know why...we're not perfect. Oh, you'd be in there for liver work, and I'd be in there to have a valve changed on my heart, your wife would be in there for a colon resection. If you let them go far enough, they will find a problem. We're not all the same.


What happened with this man should be basic science. In order to deduce a direction, you have to have two dots.


In the past, this man had been involved with drugs, had been promiscuous, and was on a bad food program. With only one test is that PSA range, you don't know what's going on. I said to this man, “What have you been doing the last two years?” He says, “I've been a vegetarian. I've been exercising, my relationship has healed, I've gone through some psychotherapy.”


So I told him, “Personally, if I had to judge where you are right now, I'd say your prostate in the past was probably larger. And I'd say that your PSA count was probably higher.”


I said, “How dare they deduce that you were down here and you're going up. I'd say you were up and you're going down.” And he loved that so much that whatever was wrong with him healed instantly.



Chapter 20:  Lung Cancer


In this chapter, we give additional details on the man who had lung cancer. This was covered on Volume Twelve of your videotapes.


“If you have it in one lung, you can always take that lung out. But you can't have surgery on both lungs. You couldn't breathe; it would kill you.”


SCHULZE: This was one of the worst, because he had lung cancer in both lungs. Usually, it's in one or the other, but his travelled from one to the other. The cancer had gone to his bone, to his sternum, he was having obvious severe trouble breathing.


There were tumors in both lungs. They didn't even do anything in the hospital. When it's that bad, they won't suggest anything. And once it's gone to the's too late. Basically, he was a smoker for 30 years.


BISER: How long did they give him?


SCHULZE: Six months. They said to go home. His brother actually brought him to me. He wanted to see if there was anything to do. His brother was a swimmer, and the patient was already involved in treadmill exercise, which was good.


BISER: How could he do a treadmill?


SCHULZE: It was limited. He was on there, in a sweatsuit, getting a sweat worked up a little bit. Having a hard time breathing, of course. He didn't appear to be as bad as what the doctors said, but a lot of times you don't feel it when it's that bad. He was starting to notice some symptoms. So, we went to work.


We are talking about a man in his late 60's. We put him on juice fasting for 30 days. It was dramatic, the changes he went through. Here's an interesting part that will be good for your readers. We put a lot of poultices on his chest at night. Right above where both his lungs were, he was sweating profusely every night.


Then all day long, he was sweating a lot through that area. We put more and more poultices on. We put poultices like this black poultice drawing poultices, we put castor oil packs, and we obviously did lung herbs like lobelia.


BISER: Lobelia tea?


SCHULZE: Yes, tea and tinctures. And we did a lot of bowel cleansing. In fact, his brother was taking him for colonics 2 or 3 times a week.


BISER: Did he have to inhale anything to get herbs into the lungs?


SCHULZE: Definitely. They had brought a humidifier that you could actually put essential oils into.


BISER: What did you put in it?


SCHULZE: Eucalyptus is a great one. Eucalyptus and peppermint both dilate the bronchial and are also antibacterial. All tree essences like eucalyptus are antibacterial. And tea tree oil is a real nice one, too. These are my 3 favorites. And we had him on the whole incurables program.


BISER: Did you put chaparral in the inhaler?


SCHULZE: No. It is too resinous. It doesn't work at all. Nothing but light essential oils. They vaporize real easy. Chaparral would gum up the unit. I had him on high doses of the regeneration tonic.


BISER: How high, 6 dropperfuls a day or more?


SCHULZE: We had him on more. We had him on 2 dropperfuls 4 times a day. Like 8 dropperfuls a day. After about 3 weeks on this routine, they went back to two specialists. One specialist said, “I don't even know why you are back.” He said, "I want to have a lung x-ray and check my lungs.” And he did.


The doctor said. “What do you expect me to say? You're going to die.” But another specialist he went to said it was better.


This is a classic thing about x-rays. Even if doctors see a 10%. or I might even say a 30-40% change (anything under a 50% change), a lot of times they don't tell the patient.


That's because they think that maybe it was just the intensity of the x-ray, or the film exposed a little differently. The doctors are so convinced this person isn't going to get well, and they don't want to give anyone false hope. As far as I'm concerned, false hope is better than no hope at all.


The second guy they went to had another opinion. He said that it looked like it had reduced a lot. And, of course, by this time, this man had broken out in small pimples all over his chest.


This is the old Dr. Christopher thing about disease poisons — they can only go one of two ways; you are either going to absorb them, or they are going to come out through the skin. So we started applying more poultices on the chest, skin brushing, and drawing compresses.


“He got so much poison out of his cancerous lungs that he would soak his clothes every hour in sweat, and boils of poison would erupt.”


BISER: Drawing compresses, what would that be?


SCHULZE: Bentonite clay, poke root, garlic, and red clover are my favorites for cancer, along with a lot of bloodroot tincture, which is what Hoxsey did. It got to a point that he couldn't believe the sweats he was getting into every day. He got to where he would soak his clothes every hour in sweat.


BISER: That's just at night?


SCHULZE: No, it's all the time now. He said the minute he got on the treadmill it was like his chest was soaked. It was a lot of material coming out through his chest. It eventually got to where there were actually boils on his chest.


I would say olive size, small olive-sized boils of material being drawn out of there. So there were things coming out through the surface. He juice-fasted strictly for the first 30 days. And his brother was really paranoid that he was going to die. Fevers during cancer are important. The body eats the cancer.


His brother worked him like a maniac. After the first 3 weeks, there was a mild reduction according to one doctor. After 30 days, her went back to food and started getting a little crazy with the food, and I had to calm him down.


They were having overcooked meals and a lot of cooked food. I said, “You go to raw foods. 'Food' for you is over. You can only have good food when the cancer is gone. There is no fooling around.”


I had to get him back on track a couple of times. The long and short of it is that he noticed his breath really coming back and his brother had him exercising like crazy.


BISER: Did tar from the cigarettes ever come out of him?


SCHULZE: Yeah, he had some days when he would do the liver flush and he'd vomit all sorts of horrible mucus. Green, black stuff would come out of the lungs.


Just a ton of stuff came out. And a lot of sweat. It kept going on. And I'd say is was just about two months when he really knew that something dramatic was happening. He went back and had another x— ray, and he went only to the second doctor, and the doctor said that it was about 60% changed. Over half gone.


“If you stop the program before you are cured, you can die.”


BISER: What happened after that?


SCHULZE: He again wanted to get off the program since he was doing so well. What happens to a lot of people is they say, “Let me have a break.” But there is no break. My experience has been that if you take a break, you die. If you want to eat meat and cake, go to the hospital.


You don't, you just keep going. They said, “Gosh, it's been two months.” I said, “People have been held hostage for 5 years. And they probably walked out healthier than they did before they went in.”


So I said, “Let's talk about the rest of this year.” So he stayed on the program, I'm going to say 4-5 months, and it could have been as long as 6. I can't quite remember...once they are really into the program, I don't see them as often.


At some point after that, he went back to the doctors and they said, “This is unbelievable.” They even checked him again. At this point, he even went to the first doctor to make sure the machinery was working. But the doctors said they didn't see anything except some scar tissue on the lungs, like he had pneumonia, but no tumors, nothing.


I think a lot of this material came out through his chest. That was about it.


BISER: What happened when he did the cold sheet treatment?


SCHULZE: A lot of stuff came out of his skin. He stained the sheet badly. It looked like nicotine. Looked like if you smoked a cigarette and blew it through the skin.


It was just disgusting. He even smelled like cigarette smoke numerous times during this process. It was amazing.


In addition to the cold sheet program, I also did Dr. Christopher's routine, the lobelia purge. I always do that with people with lung cancer at some point, just to get them to vomit and see what comes out of their lungs. But, usually, I wait a while. I don't do that right at first. I wait until they are in the midst of a good cleansing, and then we toss the lobelia in to it.


“He had definite strings of tar come out with the vomit. I've also seen scabs, like bloody scabs, come out of the lungs. And tons of mucus.”


BISER: Did stuff come out of him?


SCHULZE: I saw strands of tar. He had some tar come out of his lungs.


BISER: How does it look different from normal mucus you get from blowing your nose?


SCHULZE: It usually looks green, bright green, dark green, brown to black. I've seen black, lots of tar and black strands come out of the lungs, too. And scabs and blood, like I said.


BISER: What are the scabs from?


SCHULZE: Blood clots, just from bleeding lung tissue. The lung gets so irritated, so inflamed, blood vessels break. And of course, the mucus is just the infection and the immune war that is going on in the lungs. It’s a good sign and you just want to keep it flowing. Keep it coming.


Lung cancer: how much lobelia to induce vomiting?


BISER: Is this lobelia tincture or tea and how much of it?


SCHULZE: It's tincture. And you want to use, depending on how weak the person is, a teaspoon to a tablespoon. And most people can handle a whole tablespoon every fifteen minutes until they vomit. The first thing you do is give them a cup of peppermint tea to relax the stomach a little bit.


Lobelia first dilates the bronchial tubes. It's the first effect of a compound called lobeline. The second effect is that it stimulates the 10th cranial nerve, the vagus, to such a degree that you vomit. The lungs get squeezed, and fluid from the dilation comes out into the vomit.


What we're doing now is creating a purge to really clean those lungs out. And everybody needs different amounts. I passed around those lobelia pods I showed you. I passed them around here with fifteen students, and one student vomited for an hour and had diarrhea for days on one pod. So everybody has their different tolerance level to lobelia.


A medical furor over supposed lobelia toxicity.


Ever since lobelia was introduced to healing by the herbalist Samuel Thompson, medical doctors have tried to attack lobelia on its supposed toxicity. Good herbalists know these attacks to be false.


The lethal dose of lobelia with rats was one alkaloid extracted from a whole bale of lobelia and injected into one single rat. According to Richard, “The medical boys had to go far into left field to cook up that one.”


SCHULZE: I'm so sick and tired of people pussyfooting around, being afraid of lobelia. Of course, in our country, it's against the law to use it for internal consumption.


Even over here in Europe now, the standard dose that therapists are not allowed to go beyond is not enough to be therapeutic.


We've had students in my class saying that the dosages of lobelia that I've been suggesting in school are dangerous and irresponsible. It came to a real head tonight when I was reading your page about the Herbalists pussyfooting around, and worrying more about being recognized by the government and not causing any trouble, than their patients' health. And that's the bottom line.


One student walked out of class over this issue. He told the dean the dosages recommended in my class were illegal and irresponsible. My comment was, “That's great — from a person who never used lobelia. How would he know?”


Lobelia is a brilliant herb for kids. It dilates their bronchials, it gets them breathing. I've had thousands of two, three and four-year-old children on lobelia to get them breathing better.


What they've said in some countries is, “Well, these herbs are dangerous, so you can only prescribe this amount of this herb.” And they enforce legal dosages that are so small they won't have any effect.


What I suggest is Dr. Christopher's routine where you take lobelia — a tablespoon even ten minutes until you vomit. We've had students over here drink whole 50 milliliter bottles, and that would equal about two ounces. Now, that's considered dangerous and illegal in Britain, that kind of dosage. Yet, that's what you would give some asthmatics to cause them to purge themselves of the wastes in their lungs.


The famous herbalist Samuel Thompson used two herbs mainly, cayenne and lobelia. And with those two herbs, it is estimated he helped 3.5 million people recover from their illnesses. Cayenne, he said, stimulated the circulation, and lobelia sedated and relaxed the body.


He used them like I use hot and cold. Back and forth, purge them and puke them, and then give them cayenne to bring them back to the planet. These two are unbelievable herbs. If using lobelia sounds radical, consider cutting and drilling a 4-inch incision through your side and inserting a probe to tap your lungs to drain the fluid out. I prefer lobelia.


So you can just accelerate that with all the natural healing grams. I've seen people who were wheezing and couldn't walk to emphysema — be better in six months.


Emphysema most of the time is caused by bad habits and an unhealthy life-style. The minute you turn that around, you're on the road recovery. The key factor would be, obviously, stop doing anything to manage the lung.



Chapter 21:  Emphysema and Other Lung Conditions


On the videotapes, lung cancer was covered. The treatments are similar, but for your information, here is one of Richard Schulze's emphysema patients who followed these methods and cured the disease.


SCHULZE: I had a man come to see me who was the worst case I've seen. He had emphysema. He also had what is called chronic bronchitis, he also had asthma and, according to his doctors, they said he would never return to normal. It's a nice positive statement you hear from doctors quite often.


BISER: But how bad was this man?


SCHULZE: Well, he basically couldn't do much. He was a movie actor. He first started noticing he had a problem when he was gasping for breath. He'd just get up and walk across the room and lose his breath.


Then the next thing he noticed was that they couldn't hear him. His voice wasn't coming out on the microphone, and so he had to go in and do voice-overs on everything.


He got to the point where they could never pick him up, no matter where they placed the mike. Finally, it got so bad he couldn't get off his chair, and he was basically bedridden. He was a cigarette smoker for about 30 years, and one of the really heavy smokers (2 or 3 packs a day). He had a family history of lung disease, and I think someone in his family also had lung cancer.


He didn't have lung cancer, but one doctor diagnosed him with emphysema, another with chronic bronchitis and another one with asthma, and then they diagnosed him with all three, which is not totally common — but it's not rare either.


Whenever you have two of these they consider it irreversible. His lungs were scarred and doctors said they wouldn't get better.


Well, the first thing he did was to quit smoking. He was scared at this point. He couldn't even get out of bed. Every time he took a breath, he'd start choking and coughing. He had a lot of inflammation in his lungs, and mucus, and he went on the incurables routine. He did the juice fast, and stayed on that for a long time. His wind came back, his breath came back.


In fact, he's still working today. He's still making movies, doing television, and he has no problems with his lungs at all. He does long power walks in the morning and has basically cured all three conditions they said he had. When he got started on this program, it was like he was sucking through a straw when he tried to breathe.


I've seen numerous other people with one, and sometimes even three, of these conditions, and of course, once doctors diagnose you with all three they put you in this group they call the X-group and that means that you're not ever going to get better.


I've seen these people turn it around. My youngest patient, too was totally asthmatic, was two and a half years old, had been on a year and a half of antibiotics. I think my oldest was in her 90's, and she had pneumonia so bad she sounded like someone was gargling when she talked to me. I mean, it was like the air had to go through liquid. It was bubbling. It sounded like she was talking through an aquarium.


Some of these people get so much inflammation and so much fluid on their lung. The doctors absolutely believe when you develop scar tissue in your lungs and your airway is obstructed, it doesn't ever reverse itself.


And they're very emphatic about this, especially the Lung Association, the Asthma Foundations, etc. They believe that there is no cure for this disease. But I've seen hundreds of people turn it around: -— once they stop their bad habits and do the incurables program.


One of the things medicine has done to discourage people from self-healing is saying, once an organ is damaged, it won't repair itself. But now it's proven that the minute you stop abusing your lungs, the white blood cells in the lungs start eating the tar up and the scar tissue, too.



Chapter 22:  Liver Cancer


In this chapter, we learn some practical details of curing cancer by reviewing the case of a woman with terminal liver cancer. Her case was covered on the videotapes, but right here, we will go into points not mentioned on the tapes.


“This 50-year-old woman had a liver tumor sticking out of her body.”


SCHULZE: She was beyond terminal!


BISER: How do you get beyond terminal?


SCHULZE: Well, when the doctors say you will be dead in a month, and now it's six months, and they can't believe that you are still walking — that's what post-terminal is.


BISER: How long would she be on terminal?


SCHULZE: I think she was 6 months past her maximum point of death, that they had thought she would never survive.


BISER: Did she look grey when she came to you?


SCHULZE: Horrible. She could hardly walk, she was hunched over.


BISER: Could you see the bulge?


SCHULZE: Oh God, yes. The tumor must have weighed 20 pounds. I mean it was sticking out her left side.


BISER: And they really can't operate when it's like that, right?


SCHULZE: No, because it's your liver. You only have one liver and you can't live without it. So when your liver is totally involved, that's it. You know, you're not going to live.


BISER: Painful?


SCHULZE: Yes. She was on liquid morphine. They usually put you on morphine when you are on the way out. They don't care what they give you, anymore.


“Two women came to me at the same time with liver tumors. The one with the milder tumor wanted to die— and did. The one with the gigantic tumor fought and lived.”


BISER: She didn't come to you expecting life, she was ready to go?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. There were two women like this who I had around the same time. One thing happened to one and one thing happened to the other. One of them wanted to die, just wanted to feel a little better. She did.


I got her feeling better, then she had a party and then she died. And then I had another one, the one we are talking about, that had the same kind of tumor. They were almost identical cases.


You know, Dr. Christopher always said that things come in waves. I used to think that was kind of weird until I started practicing. Things really do come in waves. But this other lady was a very similar case.


The one that had the party didn't have a tumor as bad. This one who got better had a tumor that was gigantic. We started doing a lot of work, but especially on the bowel and liver flushes.


BISER: What happened when she did a liver flush?


SCHULZE: The key is to start out with one clove of garlic and one spoon of olive oil and when she could tolerate that, she could do more.


BISER: Could she tolerate it?


SCHULZE: Yeah, she tolerated it fine, and once we got up to 3 tablespoons of oil and 3 cloves of garlic, I went right into the big gall bladder flush with her.


BISER: Which is what?


SCHULZE: 8 ounces of olive oil and 8 ounces of orange juice. I put a couple of lemons in. You consume 4 ounces an hour for 4 hours. The first time we did it, she probably got, I'm going to say, 500-600 gallstones out of her. It was such.. .that she filled the toilet bowl.


“This woman passed these green and medium-green congealed glassy-looking ones. She had black, brown, and blood-red ones.”


BISER: Critics are going to say they weren't gall stones — that the stuff that came out was just the olive oil you put in.


SCHULZE: They could say it was congealed olive oil and I don't necessarily disagree with that — up to a point. I think some of it is congealed olive oil. You can tell the congealed olive oil ones, if in fact that is what it is. They are light to medium green in color.


However, I have seen actual gall bladders on autopsies that have a lot of light to medium green stones in them. So, I don't think you can tell for sure if it's from olive oil, or from the person.


When you have the green stones, they can come from the olive oil, but then again, they might not. I've been right in the room when they cut a guy's abdomen open, then pulled the skin apart and they opened up the gallbladder, and it was filled with those things and the guy didn't even eat olive oil.


All I know is this: when she started getting blood-red and black stones, this is horrible stuff to be inside of her.


BISER: Did the one liver flush have any affect on the cancerous liver?


SCHULZE: Yeah, she told me it felt like she had a bowel movement from her liver. She noticed the swelling went down and the size went down.


It just makes sense. The liver's job is to detoxify the blood and clean the blood. But the liver has to “sh-” through the gallbladder, that's the bottom line. And if it can't, well, it's just like your rectum being clogged up. So, when we opened up that gallbladder, we took the plug out of it. It was just amazing for her. So immediately, we did another gall bladder flush.


BISER: How many days later?


SCHULZE: Oh, the next day. We did another one and we did that gall bladder flush, I'd say, for 3 or 4 days in a row.


BISER: What happened every day?


SCHULZE: We started getting less and less stuff, and eventually it was the 4th or 5th one. After 4 or 5 days in a row, I said, “Okay.” You know what the greatest thing is about working with people like this?


BISER: What?


SCHULZE: You have nothing to lose. What am I going to do, kill her? So many natural healers are afraid of this.


Why it's easier to work on terminal patients than slighter sick people — but healers are too frightened to see it.


BISER: She is not supposed to be here at all?


SCHULZE: She has already had 6 months of extra time. What am I going to do to hurt her? What I don't understand is why everybody is so afraid of it. To me, it's like such a challenge and it's so much fun, because I can’t lose. This person is already dead.


BISER: You're working on a corpse.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. So how can I lose?


BISER: Any fungus come out or anything like that?


SCHULZE: Slime. Strands of mucus, but almost beyond mucus, where it almost felt like rubber. I think her gallbladder was 2 or 3 times the size of normal, just from the amount of stuff that came out, almost like muscle tissue or chicken meat or something like that.


Strands of stuff that was not normal bowel material, but that I think came out of her gall bladder. After about the second one, she noticed the pressure go down; when she first came to see me, it was like her liver was going to explode.


She said that the pressure was gone. I think what happened is we cleaned out her gall bladder, and her liver started to work. Now at first, we are doing the full routine; she is doing a lot of massage, she was obviously getting the castor oil packs.


In fact, she decided to drink the castor oil. I don't suggest anybody do this, but she was putting it in her liver flush.


BISER: How much?


SCHULZE: Most people don't suggest castor oil internally, because it's strong, but also in the process of making it, there may be a lot of toxic chemicals used. Hut she started to drink it. Again, what have you got to lose?


Within 10 days, she felt like there was 25% reduction in her tumor. The swelling, the pressure, the pain was gone. In fact, she was off her morphine in about 5 days.


BISER: Did she know a miracle was taking place?


SCHULZE: Yeah, and again she really wasn't a believer at first, but a lot people start believing really quick.


One thing you can almost always do with natural healing is relieve the pain and the intensity. Because what we are doing is opening up the channels. The first law of natural healing is to open the elimination channels.


BISER: Did you ever do any other compresses on her other than castor oil?


SCHULZE: No. Not at first. Not during the liver flushes.


BISER: How long did you leave the castor oil packs on?


SCHULZE: She was probably doing 2 or 3 packs a day at this point. She was doing some good massage all around the right side, but also on the left side where that tumor was sticking out. Also, she was doing hot and cold showers two times a day over her liver.


BISER: Did she do cold sheet or didn't it apply to her?


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. As soon as I think they are thing I do first is just make sure the elimination channels are open. Now we did some severe bowel cleansing, also.


BISER: What does severe bowel cleansing mean?


SCHULZE: A ton of Intestinal Number One formula.


BISER: What does a ton mean?


SCHULZE: For her, I think she was doing about 8 capsules and having about 6 strong bowel movements a day. Then, we also had the intestinal Number Two Formula. We were really working that bowel, because when you've got the liver so ill, you really want to work the bowel.


“I would say in about 2 weeks, you could hardly tell that the tumor was on the left side anymore.”


BISER: How much Number Two were you giving her a day?


SCHULZE: She was doing about 6 heaping teaspoons a day. We were doing enemas, and then we went into the cold sheet, treatment, and she had a lot of response from that.


I would say in about 2 weeks, you could hardly tell that the tumor was on the left side anymore. It just...


BISER: In 2 weeks?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It went down to about the size of a fist on her left side, and it was now gone. You could not detect that she had a tumor at all. Now, what we were dealing with was just under her rib cage and her right side. She kept up the programs.


BISER: How long before something broke?


SCHULZE: She was one who didn't want to go back to the doctors. Most people want to go back. She didn't want to go back, because they had all given up on her and told her she was dead. And I don't think she ended up going back until four months later.


And then, she went to a whole new doctor and didn't tell him anything about her history. And he diagnosed her with hepatitis. He didn't even diagnose her cancer. He just said that her liver was inflamed, that's why she was feeling bad, and she said, “Well, you ought to test me for some cancer.”


He said, “I don't have any reason to do that, unless you can tell me a reason to do that.” So she said, “No.” She walked out with that diagnosis, kept working on it, and I think I heard from her about 8 months later. She had also gone down to a clinic in Mexico, gone on a couple of different programs down there — nothing much — I think Gerson's program -- and drank some juices.


I told her, don't drink any of the beast's blood, so she stayed a vegetarian. She just wanted to be around some other people, and I think, about 8 months later I got a call from her that she was clean. She has absolutely no tumor.


BISER: What did her husband and her family say?


SCHULZE: They were ecstatic. They couldn't believe it. I think part of her problem was she had a lot of anger towards her husband.


He was a bit withdrawn and wasn't communicating — their relationship was pretty much over. In fact, one of the things I suggested to her is to get a divorce as part of her healing. She was really pissed off at him, and I think that it was one of the starts of her liver problem.


She was a liver type, but she also was very, very angry. I think he had an affair or something like that, and she was just really pissed off, and that came out during the work. I had her express some of her rage to him, and he really didn't give a 'sh-'. But it was part of her healing, definitely, to unload her rage.


The thing that I remember the most was that she was in so much pain when she came — the morphine. She was on a maximum dose of morphine, but, of course, the problem with that is it's a dead-end street, because the morphine stops your liver and stops your bowel. It stops so many of your functions.


BISER: The morphine is a dead-end?


SCHULZE: Oh, it really is.


“At my instructions, she did a lot of bodywork to 'milk' the area of the diseased liver.”


BISER: You never saw pieces of cancer come out of her, right?


SHULZE: No, never. Just some chunky material from the flushes, but I never saw any cancer. What I am sure happened is her tumor dissolved slowly, and went right through her bloodstream and cleaned right out of her. I've seen this happen with a lot of people who have no major expulsions of tumor pieces, like occur when you cure cervical cancer.


BISER: But not her?


SCHULZE: With her, it was like the swelling went down and it went away. There were no major healing crises with her, unlike the guy with the lung cancer.


We did a lot of deep body work. I sent her to a bodyworker who did lots of compression over that spot, almost like purging or milking the area of the pancreas and liver. We had her do a lot of deep breathing. Any time you have a cancer under the diaphragm, you need to expand and contract the diaphragm a lot. That goes for the liver and the pancreas.


BISER: Castor oil over the area?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely.


BISER: Anything else in addition to castor oil right over it, to try to kill it. What kind of poultice?


SCHULZE: The poke root and garlic. With pancreas and liver problems, we use tons of chaparral. Of course, herbalists say that chaparral causes liver cancer. And here we are with liver cancer giving people tons of chaparral — and they get cured. Chaparral dissolves and destroys cancerous tumors.



Chapter 23:  Leukemia


Oat cell leukemia: the man had a clean bill of health within one year of starting incurables program.


SCHULZE: All the people who I tell you about, everybody who continues on the program, always get better. I can't think of anybody who comes to mind in the last 20 years who I have worked with, who we kept working with, and who did not respond.


People just have to learn to turn up the volume on their programs. And to keep going in that direction.


The man with oat cell leukemia had one of the leukemias that is considered terminal. The biggest problem with that type of leukemia is that they have heard from everybody that they are dead.


He came to see me just to get his blood numbers in line, he did not believe the leukemia was something he could deal with.


BISER: He knew he was dying, but he just wanted to improve his cholesterol? It doesn't make sense.


SCHULZE: A lot of people do that because they are feeling so horrible. It was not necessarily his cholesterol, but that he was overweight.


BISER: I mean, they just want to die in a better state?


SCHULZE: They have endured so much. He was breathing very heavy, a lot of abdominal pain, just aching, high blood pressure, high cholesterol. He was miserable and also had leukemia.


BISER: What does it feel like when you have leukemia?


SCHULZE: A lot of times, you don't feel anything. Eventually, you start getting anemic and then you have a loss of energy. Of course, a lot of people don't think they feel anything, but they have ignored symptoms for years like constipation, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and high weight.


BISER: Did he get out of the leukemia?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. The doctors didn't even suggest any treatment because he was in such horrible shape they thought the treatment would kill him. They were worried his heart would give out in the treatment.


When doctors give a patient chemotherapy, it is taxing to the: body. It takes your energy away, it depresses you further. On the other hand, a juice fast is energizing to the body. It is supplying the body with vitamins, minerals, enzymes.


It's just what the body needs but it takes 60% or more of your energy to digest food. So, when you stop eating food, you have more energy, and then of course, you add in the enzymes, vitamins and minerals from the juices.


This is one thing people don't get about the incurables program. They think if they stop eating they will get weaker. When they stop eating, they get stronger. And of course, it happens immediately.


BISER: Did he get stronger?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Immediately, his blood pressure started going; down, his blood cholesterol started going down. He was very overweight and very constipated. He had a bowel that was almost not working at all.


We were working immediately on getting his bowel movements happening every day or even more than once a day. The side effect of the first couple of weeks was the constipation was gone, the cholesterol level was starting to come down, his blood pressure was normalizing. In about 30 days all his numbers were normalizing. He was still overweight.


“The man lost 50 pounds in six months, and some of that could be from cleansing his bowel.”


BISER: What about that white blood cell count?


SCHULZE: His white blood cell count was getting better. Once you have oat cell leukemia, the doctors do not believe anything is going to change.


Sometimes the doctors don't even tell the patients the test results, because even if they see a 20 or 30% improvement, they think it's a variation in the test, or they think that maybe the first test was inaccurate.


They will say, “Well, there was a little deviation.” But they will never say, “Hey, you're getting better.” A doctor will never look a patient in the eye with leukemia and say you are getting better — unless they are doing chemotherapy. They will never say that when they are on a natural healing program.


He kept going. He was not concerned about the leukemia; he was concerned in just getting his breath back so he could walk and breathe and get in and out of the car without losing his breath. Within about 6 months, this man was in dramatic shape; he had lost about 50 pounds. How much of that was fecal matter, I don't know, because his bowel was absolutely stuffed. His blood pressure was normalized; he was off the drugs.


BISER: What about the leukemia?


SCHULZE: Within a couple of months, he had a 30% increase in his blood count. That showed he was responding, but again, the doctors said that was not what was happening. He felt the energy coming back, he felt stronger and I'm going to say, at 6 months, he had the 50 pound weight loss and he was getting very healthy and, of course,...


BISER: So he had a 30% blood improvement at 6 months and a 50 pound weight loss?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. And over the next 6 months, he pulled right out of it. He had no leukemia at the end of a year, and I find with most people you need to give it a year.


He wasn't on the incurables program this whole time. Only the first 30 days. Often, after the first 30 days, I give a person a little bit of a break to respond; they have done a lot of hard work.


He was on and off very good programs, he became an exercise fanatic. He used to walk around the block, and I got him to where he increased his walk by about 10 times and did it about 10 times faster.


At the end of a year, he was given a clean bill of health and, at that time, he didn't even want to stop. Most of these people don't. They are believers now.


Natural healing can regenerate diseased bone marrow.


BISER: What did his doctors say?


SCHULZE: Remission. They said that it went into remission. They said that you are one of the absolute lucky few, and of course, he was one of these guys who was really pissed off at medicine and he said, “I'm not one of the lucky few. I've done this with herbs and natural healing.”


Of course, there is no better way to make your doctor feel insecure and angry, when you start talking like that.


BISER: Have you had other bad cases of leukemia or is it a tough one to cure?


SCHULZE: I've had numerous people with leukemia. I personally feel that when we are talking about cancer of the blood, we are talking about the integrity of the bone marrow of the body.


The bone marrow is where all the immune cells are made and where the red blood cells are made. All the blood cells are made in the bone marrow. Up until a few years ago, doctors said that once your bone marrow turns from red active to yellow fatty that your bone marrow would not regenerate.


Now, in the last couple of years, the new science has shown bone marrow regenerates and you start creating new blood cells and healthy blood cells again. At this point, they will give a person a bone marrow transplant. They will replace that dead bone marrow.


BISER: Because it has become yellow and fatty.


SCHULZE: That's right. They take the yellow fatty bone marrow and replace it with red, so you can build new blood cells. But it has been proven in many people they can turn that yellow fatty back to red.


BISER: How? How do they do it?


SCHULZE: They are certainly not going to do it with drugs. Science says they don't know why, but with some people it has turned that way. Obviously, the way you do it is with the incurables program.


Dr. Christopher knew this. He had many patients with leukemia. One thing Dr. Christopher knew more than anybody is that you could change a person's blood.


Dr. Christopher would even take women that were the Rh negative factor on their second child. He did not believe they would need blood transfusions. Of course, science transfuses the children in those situations.


He said he never had to, as long as he cleaned the mother's blood. That is changing the integrity of the blood. It's dramatic and I've done that with many patients.



Chapters 24 & 25 missing



Chapter 26:  Lupus


“Burdock is the greatest herb for eliminating the poisons just underneath the skin.”


SCHULZE: A young lady in her mid-twenties came to see me. She had chronic lupus and she had it since she was 13 or 14 years old.


The doctors had treated her with numerous medications that lupus patients already know. And it got worse. The toughest thing she experienced was no energy. She had no energy to do anything. She told me she felt absolutely disabled. She couldn't go to school, she couldn't think, she couldn't work, she had been diagnosed from holistic practitioners with a lot of different things, including Candida overgrowth.


BISER: They couldn't help...


SCHULZE: No, they couldn't help. I got her off of her makeup. If you want to improve someone's skin, burdock root is the greatest herb for the skin. Everything that's under the skin, it pushes right out through the surface. You will look pimply for two or three days, but when that's done, your skin will glow.


I gave her burdock root tea and I had her do hot baths in burdock tea. And you can eat burdock root. It's a staple of the Japanese diet, but Americans don't eat it. They grow it like carrots.


BISER: Why is lupus so difficult to cure for the natural health community?


SCHULZE: Because no one gets to the bottom line. Of course, the bottom line with lupus, like any incurable disease, is you need to open up the elimination channels.


BISER: But don't the people in natural healing know that?


SCHULZE: No. They say they do, but they really don't. I rarely find that people in natural healing do anything effective.


To show you how stupid and ignorant they are, most of my colleagues have names for my intestinal corrective formula. They call it TNT, herbal explosive; they call it depth charges, they call it nuclear bombs, they think it's outrageous, they think that it will hurt people.


I think it's outrageous that every American, if they live long enough, will have bowel disease.


BISER: Dangerous? They think your formulas are dangerous?


SCHULZE: Yes, and that they cause herbal addiction. But they're crazy. My formulas were created in a clinic for real live people with real diseases.


Their formulas were created from reading books, and based upon the chemical analyses of herbs. But just because something should work based upon a 400-year-old herbal book doesn't mean it will work for the people living in the 1990s.


My formulas and procedures work — on lupus and everything else I treated. I know, because my patients told me, and I saw the results.


Basically, with lupus, we're looking at an immune system disorder. One of the greatest for that is echinacea. [For immune system formulas with echinacea, see the chapter on Immune System Formulas.]


BISER: But everyone knows about echinacea. That's no big deal.


SCHULZE: No, it isn't. But the echinacea most people are taking is so useless you could swallow a whole bottle and you couldn't cure anything. The truth is, most herbalists I know wouldn't know an echinacea root if they stumbled over it.


I think it's important to get that root and boil it at home, and drink that tea. I've seen miracles happen overnight with everything from lupus to hives to blood poisoning. Unbelievable cures from it. People with lupus also need to add the blood-cleansers we discussed elsewhere.


I had a businessman come to me, in his late 30's, a very stressed-out man. He wasn't aware that he had lupus, but his wife complained that he smelled, that his breath smelled, that his skin smelled, and the harder he was working, the less energy he had.


He started feeling sick and he had all the classic symptoms of lupus as diagnosed by the doctor. This doctor was giving him medication but he didn't make any changes in the man's life, so he just got sicker and sicker and sicker, and finally he couldn't go to work.


Of course, when he couldn't go to work, that created more stress. The lupus got worse and it's a real catch-22 situation. Finally, they tried holistic methods, natural methods, chiropractic adjustments, and the chiropractors were selling him vitamins, which didn't work.


What he did was useless, because he didn't make any major changes in his life.


BISER: So you got a hold of him and he started getting better?


SCHULZE: Sometimes, people who are the worst have the most immediate responses, and he did. It's not true that it always takes a long time to get well. Healers use that as an excuse when they don't know how to heal.


You'll know when you are on the right track, because you can feel better in two days. I mean, prepare yourself for a miracle, that's what I always tell my patients. And they get well. They all tell me, “I've done this before or done that before,” but they have never done it this intensely, or all at once. The incurables is a tough, full-spectrum program, and the people who stay sick are the ones who dabble.


BISER: What happened to this man?


SCHULZE: He got better in about two days. He felt dramatically better, and his energy came back. Sometimes it's hard for me to put the reins on patients, because the first thing was he wanted to go back to work. I said, “No, you need to take some time off here. Your body is responding very quickly but we need to rest.”


I have to hold these patients down, sometimes, because they are feeling so good. I forced him to go through the other incurable routines.


His lupus went away he went back to work, and went back to all his old ways. Okay, the coffee drinking, the pot of coffee, the cigarettes when he got really nervous; he forgot his exercise program, he stopped the bowel cleansers, he didn't do this, didn't do that. And the next thing, it came right back.


I've seen this with cancer tumors, they come right back. I'm not saying you have to stay on the incurables program forever, but you have to stay in a good, healthy life-style.


BISER: The lupus came right back for good?


SCHULZE: No, but it came right back, and hit him harder the second time.


He came back to me and he goes, “The lupus is back.” And I said “I know why.” And he goes, “Yea, I fell off the program.” I said, “You didn't fall off the program, you leaped off the program.”


The minute he got back onto the right ways, the lupus went away. With some people, we have inherent weaknesses, meaning that we have weaker parts of our body. You will find under times of stress, these areas will disfunction. This is a sign for you to get back to work on your healing programs.



Chapter 27:  Heart Disease


You ran cleanse your dogged arteries without drugs, surgery or massive doses of vitamins.


You don’t need anything but natural foods and herbs. Your circulatory system can be transformed in 30 days, but it takes hard healing work to make that happen. Here is how to do it...


“I healed people who a major heart clinic was too scared to work on. They were afraid these people would vapor-lock while on the treadmill.”


BISER: Richard, did you ever have people who should have had a heart bypass — and didn’t because of you?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. I've had patients who a famous heart researcher threw out. He said they were too far gone. In fact, I've had numerous patients from a major heart center. One of the people who works at the center is a friend of mine, and she's a nurse there.


People came in with severe artery blockage, and this was before the days of Dean Ornish. Dean Ornish is the first medical doctor to recently prove, via angiograms and CAT scans, that natural healing cleans out arteries. Dr. Christopher was talking about that back in the 30's.


A certain number of people would go to a famous heart clinic, and the clinic was afraid to put them on an exercise program and diet, because their arteries were so clogged — well say 80% or more clogged.


These clinics were afraid the patients would die on the treadmill. They didn't want to be sued.


And so, they would suggest they have coronary bypass surgery, and then come back. Well, this isn't what some of those people wanted to hear. This nurse used to refer them to me, unbeknownst to the clinic, for people who were willing...


You know, she'd do a little interview with them, and if they said, “Hey look, I'll do anything,” then she'd send them to me. Of course, what we would do was the 30-day juice fast or raw food program. But definitely the rest of their life, vegetarianism.


This clinic still served chicken and fish in the cafeteria there. This clinic believed that chicken had less cholesterol than beef, and it doesn’t. It has the exact same amount. Now, they were small portions, but the bottom line is, “Why screw around when you're ready to vapor-lock?” Why put any more fat into the body? Even Dean Ornish's program still includes dairy products. So, I had numerous patients from the heart clinics, and we'd go total vegetarian.


We'd get that cholesterol level down, as I said on the videotape.


BISER: Weren't some of them so bad the doctor said, “We’ve got to do a transplant.”


SCHULZE: Yes, transplants and coronary bypass surgery.


BISER: If they need a transplant is it too gone for natural healing?


SCHULZE: Absolutely not. If I was still in practice, I would love to have lots of patients awaiting transplants.


From what I've already seen, I know natural healing would save lives. I've saved numerous people whose arteries were so blocked than they had daily pain down their left arm.


It was just killing them from the angina and the pain in their heart. The angiograms showed massive artery blockage. And, of course, doctors believed in those days, and this was especially in the 80's, that there was no reversal of this. But we had reversal with everybody who followed the program.


BISER: Everybody?


SCHULZE: Yeah. You know, Dr. Christopher even used to say that alfalfa would clean the arteries. And, of course, nowadays they know that not only does alfalfa do it, but garlic does it, and so do many herbs and natural routines.


But even exercise alone has been shown to clean the arteries. It.'s just that Dr. Christopher was doing this program when Dean Ornish was in diapers, but nobody listened until Dean Ornish stated it — because he is an M.D. And now they still don't listen to it. Dean Ornish was shocked that the world wasn't going to sit up and take notice with healers had been saying for 50 years.


BISER: He couldn't believe they wouldn’t listen?


SCHULZE: That’s right. I saw it when he presented it live to the American Heart Association. They turned him down flat.


He said, “I can't believe it. I've got a program here that's proven, that's reduced coronary plaque in the arteries, with angiograms and CAT scans to back it up.” And they said, the average American was not going to adapt to a vegetarian food program.


They felt that the average American would opt for coronary bypass surgery. I couldn't believe it when they said that.


That's what stupid morons the American Heart Association thinks that Americans are.


They think we're so stupid, so constipated, and so stuck in our ways that we'd rather have a Skill saw cut through our sternum, cutting our veins out of our legs, stripping them out, cutting arteries out of our heart and replacing them. We would rather do that and be in Intensive Care for a week and a half and have a keloid scar from our throat down to our bellybutton.


If that isn't horrible enough, there's severe pain when you come out of the operation. They've cut your rib cage in half.


And, as Americans, we would rather do that, knowing that in ten years maximum we're going to be right back in the same place and knowing that every other artery in our body is still clogged. We'd rather do that than change our diet. I don't believe that.


My experience has been that the average American would rather change their diet and their ways. The American Heart Association has to be working hand-in-hand with the surgeons and medical doctors. They love each other.


Heart poultices for clogged arteries.


BISER: When patients had severe clogged arteries, what did you do?


SCHULZE: We did the castor oil packs right over the center of the sternum.


The best place is about a steering-wheel size castor oil poultice right over the center of your chest.


There is a part where two lower ribs come to the center. There is a little piece of cartilage called the xiphoid process. You can start it about an inch below that and take it almost right up to above your breast. .And put it in that whole area around the breast bone.


And then you can also work with fomentations in that area, of cayenne and ginger. Depending on the person's pilot light, you've got to be careful, because that is pretty fiery. What is even a little stronger is you can do the hot, really hot, water there in the shower, and then turn it down to the cold right over that area.


I've had people do all three of these, especially the cayenne and ginger fomentation: also the hot and cold and have it relieve their angina immediately at the same time that you are doing the cayenne.


“When I was ill with heart disease, I took five or six tablespoons of extra hot cayenne pepper a day.”


BISER: How much cayenne? What kind?


SCHULZE: At least two capsules, that would be minimum but I like a level teaspoon. I prefer three to six teaspoons a day of cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper, as I said earlier, should be at least 100,000 H.U. By comparison, the stuff in the healthfood stores is only 40,000 H.U.


You take that internally, and then apply some cayenne and ginger fomentation.


BISER: How much on the fomentation? How strong is it?


SCHULZE: Into 2 quarts of water, you would put a couple of heaping tablespoons of cayenne pepper, and a couple of heaping tablespoons of fresh, grated ginger. That will do the trick.


BISER: You said in some cases you even used mustard?


SCHULZE: Yes, mustard is quite a famous plaster, but it's just not as available to a lot of people now. A lot of the mustard today's very interesting, the American mustard you taste has very little to it. Come over to Europe, and the French and English mustard is very strong.


Our seeds are hybridized, so they are wimpy mustard. Mustard in War I was used to kill people. It's a very strong plant.


BISER: So, in other words, if they are going to get mustard, they need to get the strong stuff.


SCHULZE: Yes. You want some good strong mustard.


BISER: What does it do, provide heat to that area?


SCHULZE: It's the same thing as the cayenne and the ginger. It's a Counter-irritant. It goes into the pores, it warms; it burns and it brings blood; it moves the blood, especially if you have congestive heart failure.


BISER: So this goes right in if they have clogged coronary arteries.


SCHULZE: Absolutely, it goes right in.


BISER: Would they do it once a day, twice a day... depends how bad?


SCHULZE: Once or twice a day, depending on the severity. And it's really offered a lot of help to some of my patients. You can feel it right away, if you have angina. You take the cayenne internally and then put the poultice on. If you have angina pains, they will go right away.


BISER: Do you remember any really bad heart cases where you used this?


SCHULZE: Yes, I've had a lot of people who were pretty immobile, in wheelchairs. They couldn't do much — but anybody can take the fomentation. Anybody can take the castor oil pack. And then use the cayenne, internally. Then when they are up to it, they can go to the hot and cold.


BISER: How bad were some of the cases? How bad were their hearts?


SCHULZE: I've had people sent to me who were told they had eighty to ninety permit artery closure. And this was from their doctors.


They don't even do angioplasty with that much blockage because it's so much closure. If it were less, they would go in and either use the balloon device, or sometimes they escape with an angioplasty. But when it's that bad, it's cardiac bypass surgery. Doctors don't even fool around with it anymore. They just cut out the coronary artery.


BISER: If it's that bad, what is it like for the patient? What is their life like when it's that bad?


SCHULZE: Usually they have a horrible lack of circulation in their extremities. Cold hands and feet, probably have varicose veins in various areas. They might have pain in their extremities from the lack of blood flow. Other symptoms were gangrene, lung and kidney failure, and being mentally delirious.


BISER: But when it's 80-90% blockage, are they getting edema from a lack of blood flow?


SCHULZE: Yes, they are. There is not enough blood going to the kidneys, so they usually have swelling. I had a lot of people like that with very swollen ankles — swollen from their calf down to their heel. There is no indentation. In other words, it looks as big as the calf all the way down.


BISER: The only thing they give them medically is what? Digitalis?


SCHULZE: Yes, usually they don't do much. It depends. If they have a regular heartbeat, they will give them beta blockers. Nowadays, they are giving beta blockers even for hypertension.


They will give some diuretics, hopefully that helps. But they, pretty much, schedule them for cutting, because even though it's been, proven that in the coronary arteries the plaque reverses, and although doctors acknowledge that, they really don't believe that the patient's body is capable of doing it.


BISER: Have you ever, in your career, talked to a cardiologist on the golf course or anywhere and told them what you were doing?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I'll put it this way: I had a patient in my office, I think I might have told you this, who had two heart attacks, and he was wealthy. He went to five top cardiologists in Los Angeles at Cedar Sinai, St. John's, UCLA and USC and Kaiser-Permanente.


He sat in my office and I said, “What did they tell you, any of them, about your diet?” And he looked at his wife, and she looked back at him and she goes, “They didn't say nothing.” This is five top cardiac specialists. This guy has had two heart attacks, and he has severe artery blockage, and nobody suggested a dietary change.


I find this shocking. That just goes to show you how much into the cut-and-replace syndrome they are.


BISER: Has any doctor ever told you, “This is nuts, what you are doing?” Or do they say, “It's good stuff, but we can't do it?”


SCHULZE: No, they do acknowledge it. Almost every medical doctor in medical school learns about a contrast bath, which is the application of hot and cold to increase circulation — which reduces swelling and congestion.


And they are taught this, but it's the history of medicine. Even most orthopedic doctors around ten-fifteen years ago would suggest for all types of injuries, a contrast bath. But you never hear about it today.


Nowadays, it's like, “Why fool around when you can put Mr. Jones in the hospital for two weeks, throw him in intensive care, strip the veins out of his leg, cut his coronary arteries out and sew them in. And then he is back in action.”


So those people are told to have new plumbing and go off and enjoy their lives all over again. Of course, they are not told that the best they are going to get is ten years, and also about all the other arteries that are clogged in their body that nothing was done about. These people ready to explode.


When I tell this to cardiologists, I haven't had much of a scream as you would get, say, from an internist talking about diverticulitis or something, Cardiologists are usually pretty open to it and they go, “Well sure, if people would eat better...” They have no argument.


They even say today that most cardiologists don't have any argument that you can remove the plaque. About half of them I talk to are, like, “Oh yea, but that's an extreme situation.”


What they consider extreme (dietary changes) is what we consider normal. What we consider extreme (cardiac by-pass surgery) — they think is no big deal.


BISER: It seems like they just don't get it.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. What is unfortunate is that they think the average American is an absolute wimp.


BISER: They think we prefer to be diced up like Chinese food?


SCHULZE: My feeling is, “Let's, at least, give the people the choice.” Doctors say there is nothing that can be done.


They go, “Let's just cut them out.” They don't say, “Well, if you went on a vegetarian food program for thirty days, your cholesterol level and blood pressure would normalize. It would take the pressure off the system, and then if you used some cayenne pepper and fomentations and began on an exercise program and became a loving person...”


I find that most cardiologists I talk to don't discount this anymore. Especially after Dr. Dean Ornish blew the lid off. So they can’t say it's not true anymore. Especially after the American Heart Association won't put their little heart on a menu anymore next to anything that is animal products. It's just that they don't give the patient the option.


“Juice fasting is excellent for people with clogged arteries.”


BISER: Have you ever had people with the heart disease so bad, the family didn't think they were going to make it?


SCHULZE: Yes I even had one man where the doctors didn't even want to do the by-pass surgery. They said that he had to get stronger before they would do the surgery. And he was a bit puzzled as to how he was supposed to do that.


And that is where this type of work is beneficial. The first thing, the absolute first aspect is, “Stop eating all animals.”


You've got to thin your blood and reduce your cholesterol level. Juice-fasting is excellent for people with heart problems. It takes all the pressure off. Even a full stomach puts pressure on the heart. And you don't need pressure anymore. So juice-fasting is amazing. It's amazing what you will see in a heart patient two weeks after juice-fasting.


BISER: What do you see?


SCHULZE: Reduction of blood pressure, reductions of blood cholesterol levels, the blood is thinner and easier to pump, and they have more energy. You have a totally transformed person.


A fireman saved from congestive heart failure.


BISER: As you mentioned on the videotapes, this fireman was near imminent death when he came to you.


SCHULZE: Yes. And he took longer to recover. I'm going to say it was about a year before he was back up to full-on exercise. You know, he had been debilitated for some time. I think probably 10 years prior to my seeing him, he hadn't moved his body much.


He was a fireman, but he was very overweight. He lived on a diet of....just horrible food, junk food, white bread, refined flours, lots of meat. And he was, I'm going to say, 100 lbs. overweight.


And so we got him on the juices, and he lost some weight there. I'd say that 50% of his turnaround came in the first month or two on juice-fasting and a lot of garlic, cayenne and hawthorn.


And then I think the other 50% came in the second six months with his aerobic exercise and his workouts. At first, we thinned his blood, cleaned his arteries, got him stabilized, and actually in really good shape.


But then, once he started being able to get up and move around without blood pressure episodes and all of that, and started exercising; that's when he started really building his strength up.


BISER: But he was your typical congestive heart failure case?


SCHULZE: Oh, God, yeah. He was dead. He had so much cholesterol in his body, too. It was coming out his eyes. I could see yellow— the snotty yellow hunks coming out the corner of his eyes. It was actually coming out his tear ducts — fat.


BISER: That happens?


SCHULZE: Oh, yeah, it was disgusting.


BISER: But the medical label for him was congestive heart failure?


SCHULZE: Yeah, congestive heart failure, although he had high blood pressure, high cholesterol level, all of that. His kidneys were not at 100% and probably never were.


So, the kidney-stimulating was helpful to thin his blood and to also get his kidneys working more. A lot of times, with congestive heart failure, you don't even have a heart that's that bad, but you have kidneys that aren't working.


You need tremendous quantities of fluids to thin the blood.


Most doctors use diuretics to get rid of fluid, but the patients actually need plenty more fluids to flush the body out. Starving the patient of fluids endangers the person.


BISER: This is exactly what F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. says. He says that the body hoards water when it is dehydrated. To get rid of the edema the patients need plenty of fresh water, with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of natural salt for each 8 glasses of water drunk. Readers who need more information on this can get Dr. Batmanghelidj's book, ‘Your Body's Many Cries for Water’, $14.95 plus $3 shipping, from Global Health Solutions, P.O.

“Today, the quality of hawthorn preparations stinks. The dosages are so small they're useless. I use five times as much as anyone else — just to start — but my patients lived.”


BISER: How much hawthorn did you eat when you had your own case?


SCHULZE: A lot. I was having 6 cups of tea — a strong decoction every clay. I used it in a tea form.


BISER: What do you mean, decoction?


SCHULZE: I boiled it. I'd let the berries sit in the water all night long, and then in the morning, bring it up to a good simmer for 15 minutes and make a real strong cup. Plus, I was eating the berries just like — I'd drink the tea, and then I'd just eat the berries, too.


BISER: So, how much tea to how much water?


SCHULZE: Generally, I was putting in about a quart of water and, oh, a good rounded handful of hawthorn berries, which is more than what anybody would tell you. They'll tell you a teaspoon — a rounded tablespoon maybe — to the pint.


BISER: You just did a handful?


SCHULZE: Yeah, I did a handful. And then I would eat the berries too. I didn't strain it. I just ate the berries too. But I would suggest that people do that. Just eat the hawthorn berries.


Now you add daily doses of cayenne to that, and you add your hawthorn berries. Hawthorn berries I look at more as, like, they are strengthening to the heart and they are protecting to the heart. The cayenne is more to deal with the circulation. The hawthorn is more of a food for the heart — but it should not be underestimated.


BISER: Everybody in America in the herbal movement talks about hawthorn, but I don't think they are using it like you.


SCHULZE: No. I think they are playing with it. They don't use enough. They will use a few drops of the tincture. I think some of the hawthorn, tinctures out there say to use fifteen drops three times a day. That type thing.


BISER: And you will do what?


SCHULZE: When anybody has a problem, I think a minimum beginnings point is eight dropperfuls which would be.....


BISER: Eight times thirty.


SCHULZE: Yes, eight times thirty-thirty five. At least 250 drops a day, instead of this 15 drops 3 times a day.


BISER: So they are doing 45-50 drops, and you are doing 250. And for you that is a start point. How high do you go up to in “Life-or-death?”


SCHULZE: If it's really bad, we could double that. We could go up to 500 drops a day.


The one thing good about hawthorn is that hawthorn is a food. Cayenne is a food. You can't overdose on hawthorn because there are chemicals in it that are like flavonoids; they are like vitamins, but they happen to protect the heart muscle from damage and cause the heart to be stronger.


BISER: Not only are they using one-fifth the dosage that you do, but their tinctures are like water, and they use commercial berries.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. You have to make your own strong tinctures, and make them with organically grown or wildcrafted berries.


All you have to do is crack the berries in a food processor or blender, soak them overnight, put them in your blender with 80 to 100 proof vodka, blend all this into a mash, let stand in a covered jar for two weeks to two months, harvest and squeeze out on the full moon, you have heart medicine.


Anybody with a heart problem should just order 25 pounds of hawthorn berries and use them any way and every way they can. Make a strong tea every day with their hawthorn berries, put them in their food, put them in their smoothie drinks, learn to know that plant well. You could plant a hawthorn tree in your garden.


“Hawthorn lets your heart survive on less blood and oxygen, so if you have a severe heart disease, you're not going to have a heart attack.”


BISER: That's a good idea.


SCHULZE: Yes, they grow well in almost every climate.


BISER: What species would it be to grow in the garden?


SCHULZE: The classic hawthorn is called crataegus oxyacantha.


BISER: And they can get that plant and grow it?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It's all over the place. All over Europe, all over the United States. And then there are local types of hawthorn that have the same effect. If you think some of these juniper berries are bad, you should see the hawthorn berries out there.


I didn't even recognize them. The best way to describe it: Have you ever bought one of those peanuts, it's like a caramel sugar-coated peanut, it's a reddish brown with sugar on it? That is what the hawthorn berries look like that I see on the market.


A hawthorn berry should look like a holly berry, bright red and succulent and loaded with pectin. You don't even have to put pectin in it for jam. It just jams up on its own. That is what a hawthorn berry should be like. Get your hawthorn berries organically grown.


The berries grow on the western coast and all over. It's amazing, these herbs grow everywhere.


Hawthorn binds to your heart cells and makes you require less oxygen and blood. So, if you have a condition, a heart condition like blocked coronary arteries, angina pectoris, whatever, get that hawthorn in and it will buy you time.


The way I like to think of it is that it buys time for a person who's a heart risk. It lets your heart survive on less blood and oxygen; so, if you have a severe heart disease, get that hawthorn in and while you become a vegetarian, use your other herbs and clean your blood, and you're not going to have a heart attack.


Secondly, if you do have a heart attack, all tests show that your heart cells repair themselves much quicker and are less damaged when you have hawthorn in your blood stream. So it's an amazing plant. It’s like milk thistle for the liver, hawthorn for the heart. Protects and repairs.


One thing that's very interesting is that it grows in many areas of the world and we used to think you only used the berries, but modern science is telling us that the leaves and the flowers are also very potent in the chemical properties that are heart protectors.


Hawthorn won't work if your diet is junk.


SCHULZE: People go out and enjoy themselves. Then they're shocked when they have a heart attack on hawthorn. Well, these herbs are very powerful, but they're more powerful when you add to them a healthy life-style and environment.


The bottom line is: if you still keep smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day nothing might keep you alive. So the modern herbalist is very lazy, and they don't get you to do your other homework.


Hawthorn Syrup Recipe.


Soak whole hawthorn berries in distilled water.


Use approximately 2-1/2 pounds of berries. Fill distilled water up to one inch above the berries. Put this in blender or food processor, crack the berries, then soak for a day. If you have no blender or food processor, you can put the berries in a cheesecloth, and pound with a hammer until they arc crushed.


Using medium heat, bring berries and water (do not change the water, use original soaking water) up to boiling — but do not let it boil hard. Just a slow simmer for 30 minutes on low heat. Then turn off stove and let them steep for 30 minutes.


Strain hawthorn berries, saving the precious fluid. Set this fluid aside and refrigerate when cooled.


Using a blender, crush the hawthorn berries a little at-a-time. Use water (distilled) with the berries in the blender — so that, when crushed, it makes a mushy consistency.


When you've done this to the whole batch, you should have a big potful of the “mushy” hawthorn mixture. Again, bring this up to boiling point — but, at no time let it come to a hard boil — just a simmer. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes — then let it steep for 30 minutes.


Using the strainer, try to separate the solid pieces from the liquid (syrup). This is the hard part. It is often necessary to use a fine but strong cheesecloth bag to put this mixture in so that you can manually squeeze the juice from the solid matter. It is important to extract as much of the juice as you can from this hawthorn “mush” because this is the juice that actually makes the hawthorn syrup. I have been using an hydraulic press that comes with the Norwalk juicer. This does a fine job.


When you have all the juice extracted, combine with the strained water from the first simmering. Now measure the total volume of both batches. Let this simmer on low heat down to 1/4 of the original volume.


When mixture is down to 1/4 volume, measure again and determine the quantity of 1/4 of this volume. For example, if mixture amounts to 4 cups, then add 1/4 cup of that — one cup — of the following two ingredients: brandy and pure vegetable glycerine.


Generally speaking, the rule is, with a quart of hawthorn concentrate, you'd want to add eight ounces of vegetable glycerine.


And then brandy about the same. The brandy should not be cheap brandy. It's your heart. Put in the best brandy you can afford.


This is your final hawthorn syrup! Pack in sterilized bottles and refrigerate. This syrup should keep indefinitely. Use six to twelve tablespoons per day.


Many people use hawthorn syrup as a remedy in itself. Richard Schulze only uses it as a base for a much more powerful heart tonic.


Dr. Christopher's remedy is the hawthorn berry syrup. That’s very nice, but as you and I know, it's not strong enough for people in the nineties. The bottom line is, if you or I had a heart attack, we'd want a heck of a lot more than the hawthorn berry syrup. Here is Richard Schulze's heart concentrate formula...


8 ounces Hawthorn berry syrup (as above)

1 ounce Motherwort tincture

1 ounce Ginger root tincture

1 ounce Cactus grandifloras tincture

1 ounce Cayenne pepper tincture


All the herbs we talked about, except for the hawthorn berry syrup, are tincture form. The hawthorn berry is in a syrup form.


Fill half of a two-ounce bottle with the hawthorn berry syrup. Then mix the other tinctures separately. Finally, add the mixture of tinctures to the hawthorn berry syrup, and stir together.


Dosage: Use 1 teaspoon 3 to 8 times daily.



Chapter 28:  Strokes and Head Injuries


“I have had absolutely hundreds and hundreds of stroke cases. My methods cured them --- when they were so stiff they were almost dead.”


SCHULZE: In many cases, there's no life in half that body.


It's what I call beyond paralysis. This is a major stroke. I've seen all those people come back.


I think the thing we have to acknowledge is that the brain does regenerate itself. It just needs help.


You know, you don't get a stroke. You earn a stroke. It isn't something that just happens to anybody. They've done everything from stress to high-salt diets, to high-fat diets, cigarette smoking; so a big part of it is to stop doing that immediately and get onto these healthier programs. But I have seen everybody come back from strokes.


I had one guy who worked for Kodak. He had a major stroke. Some people will get a paralysis where they can't move very well. This guy, half of his body was dead. He couldn't move it at all.


He lost most of his memory...didn't even know who he was.


His blood pressure went so high, he not only had a stroke, but he also did damage to his kidneys. He was on dialysis when his family brought him to see me. At this point, he couldn't do anything.


You have to imagine, here's a guy with half of his body that's absolutely dead; he can't move it. He can't talk; he can't swallow very well. His one kidney has failed, and he basically can't even think of much. So it's not like I have a cooperative patient here.


But his family was supportive. They put him on the full incurables program. I think it was in about a year's time that he was speaking fine, swallowing OK, slight limp; and in about a year and a half he had a full recovery.


And he was one of the worst cases I have ever seen, and again, he couldn’t even do the incurables program, he had to have his family do it for him.


Woman paralyzed and blinded in one eye — cured!


SCHULZE: I had a young woman in her forties, about my age. She had a stroke and she was paralyzed in her arm. She could barely move it. But she went blind in one eye because the stroke burst a blood vessel in her retina, which is not that uncommon.


Your blood pressure builds up so high, and then wherever you have the weakest pipe, it's going to burst. So she was blind in one eye.


We treated the eye with eye-wash, and we also worked on her paralyzed arm and in six months, her eye was OK, and she had full vision back and her paralysis was gone.


In the old days, medicine used to always say that brain cells don’t regenerate. You know, all the new medical studies now show that the entire brain, in every molecule, every cell, will rebuild itself in about a year or less. Of course, that's what I've seen with all my stroke patients. In fact, most of them, in six months or less, are better. But, if it's been absolutely severe, they have taken around a year.


Brain damage in 30-year-old man hit by a car. Cured totally.


SCHULZE: I've had lots of patients with brain damage, too. I had a young man who was about 30 years old, who was hit by a car when he was riding a bicycle. The car knocked him down and it drove right into his head.


They removed part of his brain; they put a steel plate in his skull. He had paralysis, slurred speech, brain damage, not from a stroke, but actually from an injury. He was 90% back within six months and they said, once they put the plate on his brain, because they had removed brain tissue, he could have some speech therapy but nothing's going to get better.


But in six months, I'd say he was about 90% better and he was so excited he didn't want to do any more work. He just quit at that point. He had a little bit of slurred speech, but that didn't bother him and his paralysis was almost gone.


Hitchhiker had brain crushed by a car, but recovers too.


SCHULZE: I even had a younger guy who was hit hitch-hiking and had a similar situation where part of his brain was removed.


BISER: He was bit by a car?


SCHULZE: Yes, hit by a car, and the driver was drunk and just drove over him and crushed part of his skull. I remember seeing him very soon after he got out of the hospital. He could barely talk, barely move his arm and...


BISER: Did his skull look like it was crushed?


SCHULZE: Well, they had to cut a piece of his skull out, remove the part of the brain that was demolished underneath, put a metal plate in his head and put it all back together.


And he, again, had severe problems: paralysis on his right side, couldn't hold anything in his hands, couldn't walk at all; and he had a complete recovery. In fact, he's a professional drummer now.


He plays the drums and obviously you can't play the drums with paralysis in your right leg and your right hand. These are major components needed for playing drums. And he had 100% recovery, even though the doctors said he was going to have paralysis all his life.


So, it's the same type of problem as strokes, only worse. Cayenne and ginger for strokes and brain damage.


BISER: What do you do for them other than the straight incurables?


SCHULZE: If I could have one thing, it would be cayenne pepper. Because cayenne pepper and/or ginger stimulate the cerebral circulation.


BISER: How much cayenne?


SCHULZE: This is a first-aid for stroke, because cayenne immediately reduces the blood pressure and stimulates the circulation. I've had patients I got to within hours of having a stroke. I immediately administered cayenne. I would say a tablespoon three times a day at least for the first couple of days. Then you can stay on a teaspoon three or four times a day. Cayenne pepper is the first thing you want to think of, and ginger. Ginger is also very effective.


BISER: How much ginger?


SCHULZE: The same amount — as much as the person can tolerates.


BISER: What does the ginger do that the cayenne doesn't?


SCHULZE: Well, it's felt that ginger goes to the smaller blood vessels and capillaries and increases your peripheral circulation, and that cayenne goes to the heart more.


I would suggest for readers to grow their own cayenne peppers. It's very easy. The best thing that everybody can do - it's very easy - you just go to your garden shop.


You ask for some cayenne pepper plants, some hot chili peppers, any kind of hot chili peppers will work. If you can get the plants already started, you can have chili peppers in 30-40 days. Then you can just chop them up and make your own tincture; dry them, powder them after they're dried, then you can have a whole year's worth of cayenne pepper off 3 or 4 chili plants. You can buy them for about a buck apiece in a nursery.


Yes, the second herb would be ginkgo. Ginkgo is becoming famous for increasing blood and circulation for the head.


BISER: Well, everybody's heard about ginkgo, and if they hear you stay it, they'll say “Oh yes, we've heard of that,” What are you doing with it that they're not doing?


SCHULZE: Well, basically, just taking larger doses. I would suggest to use a ginkgo tincture or extract, and I would suggest using about 60 drops 5 times a day. Ginkgo is not an herb that you can take too much of or overdose on, so again, most people are just pussyfooting around.


BISER: What kinds of doses are most people doing?


SCHULZE: Most herbal doses of tinctures that I see people suggest are 5-15 drops, two to three times a day. I mean, that's not enough to do anything. I'm talking about 60 drops 5 times a day. We're talking about 5-10 times the dosage these people are suggesting. The biggest problem is that people pussyfoot around with these herbs. We're talking about a stroke here...brain damage. Of course, we're not even figuring that most of the tinctures available are almost useless — even the ones that claim to be scientifically tested and super-potent.


I suggest making your own.


BISER: One reader told me that he had a blood pressure reading throughout his life of 120 over 80, but he started using cayenne pepper and it went to 140 over 90. He stopped the cayenne but the higher reading persists.


SCHULZE: I've never heard of that. I would suggest that he needs to take a look at his life and see what else he was doing.


When people start taking herbs and something goes wrong, or when something generally goes wrong with their life-style, they usually blame the best thing it is they do.


You know, I would take a look at all the other things that cause hypertension such as nicotine, not only from smoking cigarettes, but from other people's cigarettes. That's one of the most powerful constrictors for arteries.


BISER: But he was saying that it raised his blood pressure and now it won't go down.


SCHULZE: That's ridiculous. The cayenne is the best thing he's doing. He'd better take a look at the second-hand smoke, the coffee, the tea, the animal food, or even the stress.


BISER: Well, how come it wasn't raising it until he took the cayenne?


SCHULZE: It was just coincidence, and again, when something like that happens, they always look at the best they're doing and blame it on that.  How about stress?


Stress releases epinephrine out of the adrenal glands, and that constricts your arteries and raises your blood pressure better than anything.


Most people take too little cayenne to cure themselves.


BISER: What do you do for heavy cases of strokes?


SCHULZE: I would suggest at least two capsules 6-8-10 times a day. You can take a couple of capsules every hour on the onset of a stroke or damage like that to stimulate the circulation. See my comments in the incurables section regarding cayenne pepper and how weak most commercial cayenne is in healthfood stores.


Stroke cases need to thin their blood.


BISER: OK what do you do for paralysis?


SCHULZE: Garlic and red clover both contain chemicals that stop the-red blood cells from sticking together and actually thin the blood right down. In fact, garlic is a specific drug in Japan and many other countries of the world for hypertension.


The person not only needs to become a vegan immediately, they need to go onto juices.


Go on a juice and water and potassium broth fast for about the first two weeks, and of course, for the incurables, it would be at least 30 days. That's going to dramatically reduce the blood pressure and the (?) level. I would also have them do what I've always done, which is, hydrotherapies to the head and also to the paralyzed areas. Getting that hot and cold right on there.


BISER: Would most people go out and not make it hot or cold enough?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. When I say hot and cold, I mean, when you get into that shower, you want the hot so hot it feels like it's going to burn your skin, and then, I'm talking about turning that hot all the way off and you've got full cold going up in the area. Of course, you can use good sense and get info this slowly with warm and cool water, but in the long run, you can't pamper the body or you will stay sick.


BISER: What else?


SCHULZE: I like the deep tissue repair oil we explained in the chapter on arthritis. Put it over the areas that are paralyzed to bring the blood back there, and also to heal the nerves.


A warning on stroke cases.


SCHULZE: You've just got to be careful around the beginning, once you've just had the stroke, to not do anything too extreme for the first couple of days that will raise the blood pressure up really high.


Of course, a hot bath can do that very quickly, or doing any extreme, like slanting your head down. You wouldn't want to use gravity boots. That's too extreme. Too much blood to the head. You've got to let that area repair.


For the first few days, just do cayenne and juices before you add hot and cold showers and slanting. Live on cayenne pepper and fresh juices.


BISER: Would you do hot and cold for the first few days?


SCHULZE: Well, you can do hot and cold, but take it easy with it. But a hot bath can be more damaging.


Hot and cold is fine because it just increases the circulation and flushes. I'd watch too hot a bath, and also you want to start slanting immediately, but you don't want to use something like gravity boots.


For the first week, you've got to take it easy. Not too extreme of a push. But the main thing is to stop eating all food. Just stop eating all food and get onto those juices.


“A woman was thrown out of a car and bounced 100 feet on the pavement. She got off Dilantin with natural healing.”


SCHULZE: She was thrown through the window of a car and bounced on the pavement for about 100 feet. I saw her 6 years later, and, since that injury, she had been on Dilantin, the anti-seizure drug, and phenobarbital.


Every time she went off it, she had a seizure. The injury damaged something in her brain; doctors didn't know exactly what. Doctors sand, “Hey, stay on Dilantin and phenobarbital for the rest of your life.” Well she didn't want to do that, but every time she tried to stop, she got ill. So, we used the works.


We used not only hot and cold to the head, we used the brain oxygen-stimulating herbs, and we did put poultices in, and fomentations in the base of her skull and her head.


BISER: What kind of fomentations to the base of her head?


SCHULZE: You use two different nerve formulas. You use them as a tea to drink, and to bathe in, and to use as fomentations on the sick areas.


Here are the two formulas. The first is my version of Dr. Christopher's B and B tincture. The formula is:


one part of each of the following herbs: black cohosh, blue cohosh, blue vervain, skullcap, lobelia, and skunk cabbage, one of the greatest anti-spasmodic herbs.


The second formula is my Nerve regenerating formula, for nerve stimulation and repair.


4 parts                              Skullcap herb

4 parts                              Oat seed

2 parts                              St. Johns wort flower

1 part                               Celery seed

1 part                                  Lavender

1 part                                  Coffee bean

1 part                                  Kola nut

1 part                                  Ephedra (optional)


You can use these herbs as a tea, a teaspoon of herb mixture to a cup of hot water. You can use them as a tincture, using the methods for making tinctures discussed in an earlier chapter.


And, you can use these herb formulas as a fomentation. To do that, you add a heaping handful of either herbal mixture to a gallon of water and heat. You put the fomentations on the afflicted area, and you can also apply a tincture of these formulas around and in the ears, and take them, internally, 2 dropperfuls, 6 or more times a day.


BISER: How do you make a fomentation with those herbs?


SCHULZE: What you do is you have a short sleeve T-shirt and you just make a very strong herbal tea of the herbs you would use.


Like two quarts or more, very strong, of the Dr. Christopher B, F and C, if that's what you were going to use, or whatever herbs that you want. I like skullcap and oats for stimulating the nerves...


I also like kola nut, which is a caffeine herb, but it has an affinity to stimulate the brain more than it does anything else. And, again, these caffeine herbs are good when they are used as medicine, not when they are used as a daily food. So I use kola nut.


Then you dump the T-shirt in this thing, and you take the sleeves of a short sleeve T-shirt and you just tie them behind the head.


BISER: Oh, and that's it, then it covers you?


SCHULZE: Now, you're sitting here with a soaking T-shirt covering your head. This goes all the way down to your back.


BISER: All the way around, it looks like an Arabian thing!


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: Let's go back to the woman who got thrown out of the car.


SCHULZE: Oh yes, we got off-track. Well, we put the nerve herbs in her ears, put them in her mouth, she drank them as tea, and made them as fomentations. I weaned her off Dilantin and her phenobarbital.


Thirty days later, she had one seizure and I said, “Hey, you knew, your body might have needed to have one; I mean, the body has a seizure for a reason”. We have to remember that. It's like a circuit breaker blowing. It might be important in healing.


But, after that, she never had a seizure again. Okay, so we weaned her off the drugs. Doctors said that she had swelling of the brain, and so we used the whole incurables program.


What's fascinating is that glass came out of her forehead. Years later, we were putting some drawing poultices on her head, and right out through her skin came a hunk of windshield glass from six years earlier.


BISER: Oh my God, this is hard to believe! Drawing herbs like what?


SCHULZE: Bentonite clay is one of my favorite drawing compounds. Out through the forehead came a piece of glass from being thrown through the windshield.


The clay stimulates blood circulation. If I were to put a clay mask on you tonight, within a half hour you would feel like. “Baa-boom, baa-boom.” I mean, your face is pounding from the blood that is being drawn to the surface.


Brain tumors and Bentonite clay.


BISER: Have you ever done that in brain tumor patients?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. We use a lot of clay poultices around here. I try to think of any way that I can ignite this person. You know, light them up. Make more blood flow to the area, and make more flow out of the area.


Marshmallow root for gangrene.


BISER: How long do they soak the gangrenous limb in marshmallow?


SCHULZE: At least a half hour in very, very hot water. Dr. Christopher was very specific about making sure that water was really cooked.


BISER: It's not going to burn tissue, is it?


SCHULZE: No, when you put those extremities in incredibly hot water, of course they turn bright red, and that is what you want to do. We have to get blood to that area. Dr. Christopher was very fanatic about making that water as hot as you could stand it. Always add cayenne and ginger.



Chapter 29: Regenerating Bones, Muscles, and Nerves


Natural healing can regenerate tissues that are damaged or missing. Medicine cannot do this.


Natural healing supplies the body with its needs, and these organs and tissues regrow. Medicine creates artificial body parts.


The body contains all the instructions for growing tissues, you just have to use the proper natural healing procedures to activate them.


In this chapter, I introduce two formulas for regenerating tissues. One of them is Dr. Schulze's deep tissue repair oil, with modifications. The other is the old B, F and C formula of Dr. John Christopher. Both of these formulas can re-create body tissue where there is none.


We begin by talking to Dr. Schulze about how he regrew tissue on his severely burnt hand. This was introduced on video Volume Eight. In Dr. Schulze's discussion, you will learn many important principles for regenerating tissue. It is not just a matter of a certain herbal formula.


“When your body is in trouble, you STOP eating food. You juice fast immediately.”


SCHULZE: When your body is really hurting, whether it's a degenerative disease or whether you've had a massive trauma, you need all the energy that your body has, to heal.


So, you're not going to be eating big meals. The first thing I did after I burned my hand was I juice fasted for the first two weeks. Now, people say that you need a lot of nutrition to heal.


Yes, but you don't need it from potatoes; you don't need it from heavy grain dishes that take you six hours to digest. All that blood and energy is going to your digestive tract. That's why you use the Incurables Program with any trauma.


BISER: Even trauma? That's not a disease.


SCHULZE: Even trauma; just stop eating food.


If you get appendicitis, stop eating food: you burn yourself badly, stop eating food; you break your leg, stop eating food.


When in doubt, stop eating.  When you're not well, stop eating.  You just stop the food coming in and you go to juices.  So the first two weeks, I juice fasted.  That's the greatest way to get nutrients in because you're flooding yourself.  I use carrot juices, fruit juices, vegetable juices, wheat grass juice, etc.


BISER: What about the pain?


SCHULZE: The first thing you've got to know about burns is that for the first couple of days you don't feel anything.  You think, “Oh, I can deal with this.”  But then, in about two to four days, a pain will come on that you can't get away from.


Now the problem with using narcotics is that they will constipate you.  Codeine is one of the ones that are prescribed and it will constipate you.  It slows all the functions of your body down. So it slows down your healing.


A real helper is ice. We used a ton of ice. In fact, I used to go to bed with an ice pack, but on and off, on and off. Ice works wonderfully on burns.


BISER: You couldn't use lobelia for the pain?


SCHULZE: No, not for this type of pain. Just use ice and ice packs to freeze the area, to cool it, to calm it down, so you're not in pain and it works fine. I had fourth degree burns and ice worked fine. I didn't have to use any pain relief.


BISER: If you did nothing, what would your hand have been?


SCHULZE: I shudder to even think about it. BISER: Would you have been able to use the hand?


SCHULZE: Oh, I don't think so. I think I would have had to have skin grafts if I did nothing. That's what they said. When this spot finally came off, I could see the bone. They said I would have limited usage; that this finger wouldn't work properly. I healed it all.


Now, as I said, fasting was important, but so was keeping those bowels cleaned out. I didn't have a bowel movement on my own for about 7 days, because when you are traumatized, your bowel shuts down.


“You must cleanse the channels of elimination to regrow lost tissue.”


BISER: You had to do an enema?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. My bowel wouldn't work. I was so terrified, my bowel wouldn't work on its own. So you have to make sure that the elimination channels are working.


Then, what did I put on my burn? Okay, Dr. Christopher's burn paste is good. There's no doubt about it.


BISER: Is that what you used?


SCHULZE: Part of the time. It contains comfrey, wheat germ oil and honey. The problem is that the wheat germ oil nowadays is a little bit rancid. It's hard to get good quality wheat germ oil. And honey probably isn't as good as it used to be, but it's a good formula. It works really well. I used that, along with about 20 other things, and that's what I'll cover right here.


One of the first things I did is, whenever I made carrot juice, if I made carrot juice, I took the carrot pulp of a little carrot juice, and I put it on the hand. So I not only drank it, but I put it on the hand. Why? Carrots are high in vitamin A. Vitamin A is a great healing vitamin and it's anti-infective, and carrot juice is loaded with calcium.


When I made wheat grass juice and drank it, I put the wheat grass pulp on my hand. In fact, almost every juice I made, I soaked my hand in that same juice.


I think one of the greatest things beyond the burn paste is aloe vera. I think it's even better. The reason we like comfrey is because comfrey has allantoin in it, but aloe vera has more.


Okay, that's the bottom line. Plus, aloe vera is a gel, and it's proven to be more effective for burns. You can't use the stuff that's in the stores. The stuff that's in the stores is like Dippity-doo hair setting jel. I mean, it's junk. You have to use the fresh cactus. I had holes in my finger and I took that gel and just laid it over, and wrapped gauze around it, and it's like, “Ahh.”


I would wake up in the morning, and there wouldn't be anything there. It was all absorbed right into my body. This gel goes right into your body. Your body soaks it in. Aloe vera has got to be one of the greatest things I know of for burns.


“There will be no infection if you use only the right natural foods as you heal.”


BISER: Didn’t all these things you put on cause infection? You’re putting on foods.


SCHULZE: The doctors said that the burn was bad, but the infection I was going to get was going to be even worse.


They said that you have to get some sulfa creams on there, your skin has been compromised. Your immune system is going to be attacked directly. They also suggested I take constant antibiotics for weeks.


I never had any infection, not one pin drop of pus. I am so convinced infection comes from the inside. Plus, when you have things on there like honey, honey is a great anti-bacterial. It's hard to get an infection with aloe vera. I was consuming probably six cloves of garlic a. day, keeping my garlic up. Also. I was not eating foods that were laden with bacteria like animal products.


I never had a drop of infection. And of course, apples and grapes have pectin, and pectin is incredibly healing to the skin. Then I used various oils. Sometimes I just soaked my hand in olive oil — just pure olive oil.


Exercise was very important. I went out every day and did my exercise. Sometimes, when I was running, my hand would be bleeding through the sling, and I just had to put more gauze on it. I just kept up my exercise, because you need that circulation. Within a week, I was doing hot and cold on it. Right from the shower — hot water, cold water.


BISER: Hot water directly? But it wasn’t washing into the bone?


SCHULZE: One thing I learned is, don't worry about the stuff coming off. The meat. If you have a severe burn, everything that's burned is ging to come off eventually. I saw parts of my hand come off and it scared me to death. Like I said, my thumb casing eventually came off.


My hand swelled up. It looked like a catcher's mitt; and then one day the skin split, and liquids came out. Eventually it gets to where so much material comes off, it doesn't look like you are going to have a land left. But then it starts healing.


Then a point came where I started getting this gelatin stuff filling in. It looked almost like a jelly substance filling in, and then it almost looked a little cottage-cheesy. It was lower layers of skin that just all grew right back.


BISER: Sounds like a miracle.


SCHULZE: It was. All my nails came off, you know I lost my nails. But they grew back, too.


“Scar tissue is the body's way of reinforcing the weakness in a damaged area.”


BISER: The hand healed perfectly. You did everything right. Why is it still damaged?


SCHULZE: A lot of people would say, “If you had used aloe vera, there wouldn't be any scarring.”


First of all, if you break a bone, you can't break it again in that same place. The body not only repairs it, but it lays down an extra 25% one tissue. The body doesn't skimp when it comes to healing. I think that part of scarred tissue is that you have tougher skin in that area.


I think that scar tissue is necessary. It's the way the body heals.


1 used so much fresh aloe vera cactus. I was swimming in it. I drank a pint of it some days and put it on my hand. It's not true that aloe will stop all scars. The body naturally creates scars. If we're talking about a cut, okay, I agree. I've had people who had severe lacerations and we healed them naturally. They don't have a scar.


But there wasn't anything here for the body to work with. The body had to put something back there. In different parts of my hand, it looks different. And in some areas, it looks just like my original skin. This hole, that's my bone. It went right down to the bone. And the bone was white. It had charred spots on it. There was a hole there and that hole filled in. That's now the most perfect skin.


Now I'm a burn specialist. I'm an absolute burn specialist. But people won't do this, they are too frightened. They are too fearful. They are not believers. That's what Dr. Christopher was. He knew he was a believer. He was a believer in God, a believer in nature...


BISER: People do believe in the medical way, even though it's barbaric.


SCHULZE: I would have had a skin graft.


BISER: A skin graft couldn't put muscle tissue together,


SCHULZE: Absolutely not. They said that I would have problems for the rest of my life working this hand.


BISER: How could you avoid problems with no muscles?


SCHULZE: You couldn't. Doctors suggested taking some ligament material out of cadavers and putting them in my ringer. That's when I thought, “This is sounding more like Frankenstein every second. I'm getting out of here.”


How Dr. Schulze's blown-apart kneecap was restored with natural healing procedures.


BISER: Dead ligaments from cadavers and put it in your hand?


SCHULZE: Yes, they said my ligaments were gone.


I not only healed my hand, but I put my knee back together. I got into skiing, I did the races. I was going downhill as fast as a human could go, and I turned the corner, and it was sheer ice. It was the end of the day, and the bottom of the mountain froze. I was doing my last bamboo pole, and my knee was like this when I heard a pop.


BISER: What was that?


SCHULZE: I tumbled into a snowball.


BISER: So your knee was toast?


SCHULZE: Yes, they said that all my medial lateral ligaments on the inside of my knee were ripped in half. There was about a five-inch space between the broken part and the rest of the knee. I also tore my anterior cruciate ligaments. My cartilage was torn and my meniscus was separated.


They said that I needed surgery, so I went to see a friend of mine who's an orthopedic doctor. He looked at me and he said, “I want to heal this naturally, but there are some things that you cannot do.” He said, “These ligaments are five inches from where they need to be. They need to be reattached.”


He said, “If you even walk on this leg, you'll tear up your cartilage.” He said, “You need arthroscopic surgery. It's not a big deal. We just give you a light sedative, and I go in there with the needle. Then I can see in your knee, and I do everything right in there. This is not a big deal.”


And I said, “I am going to heal myself naturally.” So I went to my bodyworker friends. I even talked to physical therapists, conservative physical therapists, and they said, “Those ligaments will reattach to each other. They know how to find each other”. We did a lot of deep tissue repair oil, bodywork every day, massage, hot pack, cold packs, the works. A lot of herbs.


I went from juice fasting to stretching. It got to where I could start moving my knee, then I put some weights on it. It was some own physical therapy. The long and short of this story is, I went back to my physical therapist in about 40 days, walking with a slight limp. I walked in and he said, “This is unbelievable. This is amazing.'”


There was a man lying in the bed in the hospital, in the physical therapy room right there, and as I'm waiting for my physical therapist, be said to me, “Whoa, what happened to you?” We got to talking and he said, “I did the arthroscopic surgery.” He goes, “I got a staph infection from it, and I went into intensive care for 17 days with an infection in my knee that went through my whole body.”


I rest my case on that one. That's what they wanted me to do.


I don't have any limp at all. They said I would always have a limp. They said the cartilage would be destroyed in my knee because it was going to grind on itself, since I don't have any anterior ligaments. Wei they grew back. That's all I can say.


Dr. Schulze developed his own simplified formula for trauma and tissue healing, based on the work of the ancient native healers.


BISER: What compress did you put on that causes regrowth?


SCHULZE: As you know, I don't use a lot of B, F&C. It was probably one of the great formulas of Dr. Christopher, and I've heard the testimonies from it, but it seemed a little too complicated for me.


BISER: So you simplified it. What's your simplified regrowth formula?


SCHULZE: I'm a big fan of the trauma herbs. I use the deep tissue repair oil we covered in our arthritis chapter. This contains arnica, St. John’s wort, and marigold. Again, when you look into the old herbals, the herb of choice for bruises and bangs was arnica.


BISER: This is more than bruises and hangs, these are fractures of bone and ripped tissue.


SCHULZE: Arnica was considered the greatest external trauma healer, even for broken bones.


BISER: Today it has a reputation for a soothing herb, but not a healing herb.


SCHULZE: Arnica, marigold, and St. John's wort, for some reason, have a reputation for being lightweight. But I have seen traditional people in Spain use arnica after they set the bones, wrapping the area in fomentations of arnica.


Throughout history and throughout the world, it's considered very powerful for healing bones and tissue, and soft tissue and cartilage. But for some reason, it's gone out of vogue. As I said, people think it is lightweight.


This is how a lot of herbs are looked at today. Unfortunately herbs such as slippery elm, peppermint, and a lot of others are very powerful. These herbs are looked at as lightweights, but they are very powerful.


BISER: They are looked at as stomach soothers.


SCHULZE: Yes, exactly. But again, I have had a patient who recovered from malignant cancer with large doses of peppermint tea. You can’t underestimate what these herbs can do.


“Use aloe vera as a substitute for comfrey.”


BISER: Could somebody use this tissue repair and either mix it with aloe or put the aloe juice on first and then put this on?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Use aloe in any way that you want. They could also just add one part comfrey root and leaf in there with the St. John's wort, the marigold and the arnica. My patients mix and match a lot of things. They could mix it with some comfrey ointment, or they could whip it up with aloe in the blender. I prefer aloe.

Both comfrey and aloe contain the same substance, allantoin. This accelerates cell repair by five or ten times.


I put fresh aloe in the blender and put the deep tissue repair oil in there and whip it all together. My own experiences with many patients is that you don't need anything beyond the tissue repair oil.


BISER: Do you ever have them take aloe and chop it up and eat it?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It's great in blender drinks. It's a little bit mucilaginous, but you don't notice it in a smoothie.


I like aloe vera better that the comfrey. I'm not saying comfrey is a bad herb; I've seen hundreds of people healed by it. I just didn't feel a lot of energy with comfrey, and yet it was one of Dr. Christopher's first herbs. It seemed prickly to me, and I'd put it on open wounds, and it would irritate them. Comfrey can be very irritating to an open wound. However, his formula will heal in spite of that.


However, aloe is soothing in an open wound, so aloe just became my favorite instead.


Here is Dr. Christopher's famous B, F and C formula,


Dr. Christopher has oak bark in his B, F and C (bone, flesh and cartilage) regeneration formula as an astringent to tighten up the area. Now, if you feel like you need something to tighten up the area, like the skin is flapping loose and you've got to, like, stitch it back together, oak bark is brilliant. It's the greatest. And I use that. Here is the formula.


6 parts Comfrey root

6 parts Oak bark

3 parts Gravel root

3 parts Mullein

1 part Lobelia

2 parts Wormwood

3 parts Marshmallow root

1 part Skullcap

3 parts Walnut bark


The comfrey in the formula brings bones together. Another name for comfrey is knit-bone. It can re-heal and re-form bones that have been shattered or eaten away by disease.


Here are the instructions for making this formula:


Use a large stainless steel pot. Never use aluminum. Use distilled water. Put 1 gallon of distilled water in the pot. Add 1 cup of loose tea mixture. Mix the tea in the water. Let this mixture sit in the water overnight in the refrigerator. You can even let it sit a few days. The longer you let it sit, within reason, the stronger the tea will be.


Heat the tea, but not to a boil. Let the tea simmer. Pour the strained tea back into the pot. Simmer this solution down to one-fourth its original volume. Use this for herbal compresses over the affected area.


Soak a flannel or wash cloth in the hot tea and apply as a hot compress. Use a thick flannel or washcloth for your compress, or else it will not hold much tea. Cover with plastic to retain fluid and heat — then cover with a towel to retain body heat.


You can also put deep tissue repair oil on the skin first, then add the B, F and C formula as a fomentation on top of it.


(NOTE: It is very important that you keep the treated area wrapped and the rest of your body warm. This ensures that you do not get a chill as the tea cools down. Warmth helps the herbs to penetrate better.)



Chapter 30: Nervous System Degeneration


Nerve disorders can be cured — but it takes total, dedicated natural programs to do it.


In this chapter, you will read about people with various nervous system diseases who were cured. Doctors may say these people were in remission, but between you and me, they were cured.


There is no wonder substance or “herb in a capsule” that will correct these disorders.


And I can't believe people are so ignorant as to believe that drugs can cure these diseases, or that they ever will.


Nervous disorders are total system breakdowns. To think you can cure them with a drug is as nuts as believing that some gasoline additive can “cure” a car whose motor is worn out.


If you have one of these diseases, you need a complete overhaul. You need the whole Incurables Program. Do not be tempted to pick some herbs from this chapter and try them first. Do the whole program, or don't waste everyone's time.


That means the cold sheet treatment, the hot and cold showers, the juice fasting — all of it.


First. Richard Schulze and I will go into a long discussion of the various factors that are specific to curing these diseases. Then, we will discuss several cases in detail so that you can see how these principles are applied.


“Immune abnormalities are behind a lot of neurological breakdowns.”


SCHULZE: I'll give you just a little bit of background here. With all of these diseases, the cause is unknown. You'll look in any medical book and it will say ‘cause unknown.' The most recent 1993-94 medical books say “neuromuscular disease. Cause unknown.”


But — they all say “immune abnormalities are suggested and revealed.” In other words, they're starting to look at multiple scleroses, myasthenia gravis and what are called neuromuscular diseases as immune system diseases, and that's important.


That's one of the ways we've treated them in natural healing for ever. Your average medical doctor isn't even going to know this. But medicine is just starting to say, “Yes, we're noticing under multiple sclerosis, it'll say Immune abnormality is suggested”.


This means they find increases of certain immune cells in the body — knowing that there's an attack. They also go on to say that the infection is probably caused by a slow, latent virus.


So, nowadays, neuromuscular diseases are being looked at more and more as immune system weakeners, also as probably viral, maybe even bacterial, maybe even parasitical in nature. We know that the immune system isn't working, and it's being attacked. And that's considered the new cause of neuromuscular diseases.


Also, the immune system may be attacking you. These are being called auto-immune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and myasthenia gravis. Now muscular dystrophy; I think the only reason they won't say this about muscular dystrophy is because there's so much money being spent on research by the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation. So they say the same thing “cause unknown, no therapy”. They don't talk immune system with muscular dystrophy that much yet. But, there's a few people suggesting it.


Obviously, when anybody has any neuromuscular disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis or others, it is the Incurables Program. That's where everybody has to start.


Two key herb formulas, and mistakes people make.


SCHULZE: Besides the Incurables Program, there are two key herb formulas. One is the nerve stimulator, which would be the oat seed, the celery seed, the skullcap, etc., what I call the nerve restore formula. [This formula is given in the chapter on strokes and head injuries.]


BISER: Right, like a nerve builder.


SCHULZE: Yes, the nerve builder, the nerve stimulator. It wakes up the nervous system and sends an electrical charge down there. That's the big herb formula.


The second one is the immune stimulators, because we've always used those as part of the Incurables Program. The second thing is high doses of the immune stimulator, specifically echinacea or an echinacea-immune combination, because there's some attack going on.


A lot of people make a mistake here, and use what we might call the anti-spasmodic and nervine herbs, and that's not the way to go.


BISER: That's not the cure for these diseases?


SCHULZE: No. In fact, that could even make them worse. People with these diseases don't need to slow down or sedate, they need to wake up their nerves and move them.


BISER: So we don't need valerian.... what kind of herbs are they taking?


SCHULZE: Valerian, passionflower, hops, wood botany; your classic nervine herbs are not indicated. We want the nerve repair, and stimulators, like oats, or St. John's wort, skullcap, celery seed and kola nut. These are the nervous system stimulators.


BISER: What are high doses for people with these kinds of disorders?


SCHULZE: The average dose for a tincture for a normal person is one-to-two dropperfuls three times a day. In the Incurables Program. You could triple that, where we're talking about one-to-two dropperfuls or ten times a day.


Basically, every hour or every other hour you are awake, you are taking what would be considered a dose of tincture, one or two dropperfuls. A constant barrage of these.


“Other herbalists don't even come near the high doses necessary to cure these diseases.”


BISER: Now your other herbalists, if they heard that, would they all go blow-out some fuse?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Even if you corner them, they'll tell you that there are no toxic doses for these herbs and you can't take too much, but all of them use minuscule dosages.


I think one of the reasons they use minuscule dosages here in this country is because of sales and costs. In other words, they're charging $15 for this bottle of herbs, and they think that it would be too outrageous for someone to take that entire bottle in a period of one or two days.


So they set you up on a dosage that'll last for two weeks.


BISER: That problem is in their heads. Patients don't care.


SCHULZE: Yes, patients don't care. You know, most people who are incurable need to take a bottle every other day.


BISER: In order for me to feel anything on your liver formula, I to take half a bottle a day, and I know it's already strong.


SCHULZE: Exactly. Now that's what we would call a therapeutic, 'incurable' dose. The average person who has a little history of some gallbladder stuff and is doing some liver flushes, and wants to do a cleanse of the liver, that's fine. But you are kind of like me. You want to feel some therapy right away, and you also have a long-term chronic problem that you're dealing with, so you're using a high-therapeutic dosage.


We look at it, okay, a $15 bottle of herbs every other day or $7 a day. My God, you could spend that in antibiotics alone. This is not a lot of money. The old-style doctors would put bottles of this stuff down people.


You know, when you look at tonics; if you bought tonics around the turn of the century, they were large bottles. They were eight-ounce bottles, and you'd use that in a week. Now, everything is in one or two ounces, and that's supposed to be for two weeks. It doesn't make any sense.


More on nerve stimulators versus nerve sedatives.


BISER: OK. First, they're using the wrong nerve herbs, and then when they do use the right ones, they don't use enough.


SCHULZE: Yes, most people, if they buy a nerve formula, it's going to be the nervine sedative herbs. They need to use the nerve stimulators, the nerve repairers. And a lot of times, you know, most herbal formulas that I see out there obviously aren't made by an herbalist because they just put any herb in that they think is for the nerves. It's kind of like mumbo-jumbo.


Then, the third thing to consider is B vitamins.


You know, when you look at myasthenia gravis, it says that the immune system is eating up the acetylcholine receptors. Acetylcholine is a B vitamin. It's called a neuro-transmitter, and it's a B vitamin complex.


The vitamins that will absolutely reduce stress and give us more energy and make the nerves work better are the B vitamins.


The B-vitamin diseases, like beri-beri and other B vitamin diseases, were discovered because they're neuro diseases. They're diseases of the nervous system in the brain, and they're what happens when you run out of B vitamins.


The main thing that a person with any neuromuscular disease has to remember is that they can't afford to run out of B vitamins. In fact, they should have two or three times the B vitamins in their system at all times, so their body can draw on whatever it needs.


BISER: But you don't mean pills?


SCHULZE: No. Never. What you want to use is food. Dr. Jensen used rice-bran syrup; and old-time doctors used to use molasses, a high-B vitamin liquid. And they're good, but they're also very sugary. They're sugar-sweet, and sugar is not a good food for the nervous system.


In fact, it can be detrimental. So that's why, for years, I've been using nutritional yeast, and I have seen unbelievable changes in people with multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy on this food.


It actually makes their speech better and makes their twitches- go away. I can't underplay the nutritional aspect of this, too. A lot of these people, because of the stress they're under, when you put B vitamins into their system from a natural source, I've seen where it's almost gone away.


“Oh, I've had patients who have had numerous diseases for ten or twelve years take three or four doses of that superfood mixture I gave you the recipe for, and they're 80% better in a couple of days, just by getting the food they need.”


SCHULZE: Nutritional yeast is a single-cell plant, which means that it goes into your blood stream predigested. Spirulina is the highest source of natural vitamin B12 on the market. There's no higher source of B-12, and the second highest is nutritional yeast; that's why I use them both.


They both go into your body before they even hit your stomach, because they're single-cell plants, which means you don't have to digest them. It's just like whales sucking plankton; they don't have to digest it. It just goes right into their blood stream. So this is a key factor.


A lot of people who have these diseases just don't have good digestion. The cranial and thoracic nerves are affected and these are the nerves that affect the digestion. So if they take a B vitamin tablet, they're just going to poop it right back out.


BISER: The old-time herbalists had rice syrup and molasses, and that was it?


SCHULZE: Yes, that's what they used. And I'll tell you, it's really good but you've got to consume a lot of it.


BISER: I remember Dr. Henry Bieler, the old healer, used to use baking yeast for people.


SCHULZE: Yes, and it works. The only problem is, you know, in the 60's you'd go in the health food stores and they called it Brewer's yeast. And that is the yeast people make beer from. It's very high in B vitamins but, of course, it can also give you diarrhea.


Theoretically, if you have Candida, it can affect you adversely.


Now, an interesting side-note is that in Europe, they think that it cures Candida. In this country, they think it's the death food. I tend to believe the Europeans. You go to Germany and they believe that the live yeast is very healthy in building up your system. I think they're right.


BISER: You think that the old-time healers used to use yeast, even before they knew about B vitamins?


SCHULZE: Oh yes, they used to use Brewer's or baking yeast. And the only problem is because it's live, it can give you the bloats. I mean, you take a good dose of brewer’s yeast, and the next thing you know, you have to take your belt off. But, nowadays, they make specific yeast, just for nutritional consumption, that is non-fermenting.


Healing results from nutritional yeast.


BISER: So you’ve seen results, in how long did you say?


SCHULZE: A day. Twenty four hours. I mean, it's unbelievable. Take myasthenia gravis, for instance. The immune system is eating up the acetylcholine. The acetylcholine is the nerve transmitter. A nerve can't fire without it.


It's like the gasoline for your nervous system. Acetylcholine is also called a B-vitamin complex nutrient. In other words, it's in rice bran syrup, molasses, and very high in the new nutritional yeast. You give that to a person with myasthenia gravis, and the nerves are going to fire.


It's unbelievable how fast you can get a response. Immediately, in 12 to 24 hours. I've seen people improve from 80% all the way to 100%, to where they didn't even know they had the disease anymore.


BISER: What kinds of diseases?


SCHULZE: Myasthenia gravis and multiple sclerosis. Again, when I say B. vitamins I'm never talking about vitamin tablets. It's unfortunate because vitamins got a bad name. That's why I call it super-food. That's not .vitamins. It's super-food.


BISER: What you’re talking about is bringing back another neglected form of healing?


SCHULZE: Sure, and molasses is a very old form. You know, what they would do in India? They would take sugar cane, they juiced that on the street corner and you'd drink sugar cane juice. You're not only drinking sugar, but you're drinking the highest sources of B vitamins. Ok, that’s a B vitamin blast.


But then what they do is, they manufacture it and take out the B vitamins and make refined sugar.


So, cane was used. I remember when I was a kid, my mother used to give me a dose of molasses for B vitamins. This is what the old healers used, molasses and even sugarcane, sugar beets, high B-vitamin foods, even yeast. European tradition was to use lots of yeast. They would give you all types of yeast products. (See chapter on Incurables).


Bowel cleansing and neuromuscular disease — it causes dramatic healings.


BISER: What's the next thing on your list that they need to do?


SCHULZE: The key a lot of people forget, and I have seen dramatic results with this, is cleaning out the bowels.


You know, it's part of the Incurables, but a lot of people think rhat cleansing the bowels is too messy for people who are crippled. They can't walk very quickly, so they all originally resist cleaning out their bowels. They say, “If I have to go. I won't be able to get to the bathroom in time.” OK, who cares? I couldn't care less. I mean, that's not my worry.


BISER: So go to a bedpan!


SCHULZE: Absolutely. But I've heard this from the relatives, and from the patients themselves. The ones who have worked on their bowels with intestinal #1 and intestinal #2. It's part of the Incurables Program. The people who have done that have, absolutely, seen results.


In fact, I've seen these people get better just after getting their bowel good and cleaned out. I mean, a week of good strong bowel cleansing where they're using a whole bottle of the #2.


I've seen one group of people who have the various diseases respond just from that.


When you put these all together, the nerve stimulators, the B vitamins and the bowel cleansing, and the Incurables, the results are staggering. But you can't listen to the patient's complaining about how hard the program is. I'm a butt-kicker and proud of it.


You know, these old German and European nature cure doctors didn't take no for an answer. Nowadays, everyone's responding to the patient's whining.


The untold story: constipation and nerve diseases.


BISER: So the whining determines the treatment?


SCHULZE: Oh God, I hear this all the time from people with neuro-muscular disease. “If I use the bowel cleansers, I might not make it to the bathroom.” You know what happens? If they poop in their pants, who cares? Clean it. It'll give them something to do. It's part of the program. You've got to get this bowel cleaned out. And I'll tell you something. I had a couple of people with cases of multiple sclerosis, who couldn't even walk. When they cleaned their bowels out for a week, my God, the stuff that came out of them was E-N-O-R-M-O-U-S.


A lot of these diseases, like multiple sclerosis, affect the pelvic girdle. In other words, these people don't walk well because the pelvis gets a little frozen. The nerves going to the pelvis are being eaten up. Well, my God, those are the nerves that are making the peristaltic action also; so these people become very constipated, and who's to say which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Which came first, the constipation or the neuromuscular disease?


In fact, the fecal matter can press on those nerves. You get that bowel cleaned out, and that alone improves them, I would say, 50-75% in a week.


BISER: Now, when you say cleaned out for those kinds of people, are you talking 8 ounces of intestinal formula #2, or do you mean several?


SCHULZE: Well, I would say for a start, working up to whatever their dosage is with intestinal #1. Then, at least 8 ounces of the #2 formula in five days, or a pound in ten days.


BISER: What about someone who is really dedicated. They don't want to screw around?


SCHULZE: Oh, like last night, myself. I took my one evening dose. I took a couple of tablespoons, and my stomach hurt a little bit. I mean, I'm like you. But that's about it, I mean that's a lot. If a person will take at least a couple of ounces per day, it's a good dose.


Bodywork and neuromuscular diseases.


SCHULZE: One of the classic things for neuromuscular problems was Swedish massage. That was in the beginning. But everybody knew this. John Harvey Kellogg used massages and skin brushing for neuromuscular diseases; and all the clinics in Europe used bodywork and hydrotherapy to stimulate that nerve circulation.


BISER: But over here, they don’t even touch bodies?


SCHULZE: Oh God, they just let you lie in a bed. You know; I've been in health spas in Europe, where they put you in a steam room for all your pores to open, like a Turkish sauna, and then whip you with stinging nettles. You know, most people who have brushed with stinging nettles, it burns so much it'll make you cry. They open your pores and they whip you with stinging nettles.


BISER: What, does it make you bleed?


SCHULZE: No, but it feels like a burn over your whole body. It doesn’t do any damage, but it would be kind of like going into a Turkish bath, and then going into a hot cayenne bath.


BISER: Everybody here is kind of wimpish. They're thinking of potential lawsuits.


SCHULZE: No, no. I'm not talking about having someone smear oil on your body. No, we're talking about someone purging the lymph, moving the blood. Imagine...we used to have the idea that a Swedish massage was a 300 lb lady, who would throw you on a table and beat the hell out of you. That was what a Swedish massage used to mean.


BISER: Of course, today, what does a Swedish massage mean?


SCHULZE: Today, a Swedish massage means putting oil on your body and rubbing it around. It's a treatment for nurturing the skin.


BISER: What did it used to be?


SCHULZE: It used to be like World Wrestling Federation. They'd throw you in the ring with the Incredible Hulk.


I mean, that's what you felt like. You felt good when it was done because they had stopped. That's what bodywork used to be.


They also skin-brushed. In Turkey, they'd put you on a marble slab, throw a bucket of hot water over you and scrub you with a brush that looked like it would take gum off of a tile floor. I mean, they're not fooling around; they're taking the top of your skin off, but they're also moving your lymph and your blood. So, hydrotherapy and massage is a very necessary part of this.


BISER: It looks as though we’ve abandoned almost all of the old-world views.


SCHULZE: Oh God, yes. I've been to some of these clinics, and I've seen them dropping ice water from 30 feet above the room, and seen the pressure of that. I mean, they're not fooling around.


BISER: It looks as if we've got wimpy treatments everywhere!


SCHULZE: Oh, all across the board. You know, one of my good friends is an OB/GYN and he says that whenever he delivers, the first thought on his mind is, “Am I going to be sued?”  So it's rampant, not only in medicine, but even among alternative practitioners.


All herbalists in our country focus on how to be good little boys and girls. The good bodyworkers I know are all underground.


BISER: But this is the kind of person who our readers have to seek out when they're that sick?


SCHULZE: You know, it's not someone who comes and puts an amethyst crystal near your ear, and puts some nicely scented oil on your body, and smears it around as a good emollient for your skin. This is relaxing, even beneficial, but not therapeutic.

We go through massage therapists here like water. We're just: next, next, next, and try to find anyone who's even mildly acceptable. So, that's the next key. These people need to get their muscles working.


Excess stress and neuromuscular diseases.


SCHULZE: And the final thing is, these people need to reduce their stress. This is probably one of the major factors in getting their diseases.


BISER: But as soon as they hear this, they’re going to say “I know that”.


SCHULZE: They can say they know that — but they don't know how to do it.


I think anybody with these diseases doesn't even know the meaning of relaxation. This is one thing we've seen across the board; they don't know how to relax. And they say “Oh, I used to play golf.” Golf is not relaxation. You don't know relaxation, Sam, and neither do I.


When I go on vacation, we go down to Costa Rica. We go down to the ocean. We're in the middle of nowhere and my wife pulls all her clothes off and lays in the sand for eight hours where the waves break. Can you do that? I can't do that. I can't do that for 15 minutes.


These neuromuscular people, they don't know the meaning of it. So when I say they're going to have to work on it for the rest of their lives, they really have to work on relaxation. In other words, doing nothing. Having some meditation, or some time when they absolutely chill out and stop.


BISER: It's not a cliché, they really are stressed out?


SCHULZE: Oh, it's unbelievable. Even if they seem relaxed, you don't know what's going on inside, their inner dialogue...what's happening there. I've found that all my people with neuromuscular diseases are over stressed, just absolutely over stressed. They're the type of person who would usually try to do too much, take on too many commitments, that type of thing.


So, these are some of the things across the board...and a lot of people say, “Oh yeah, I know, I know, clean out the bowel.” But yet, when you tell these people to clean out the bowel, they don't want to.


BISER: What happens when you tell them they've got to calm down the stress?


SCHULZE: When you say that to a person with a neuromuscular disease, it's like trying to describe the color purple to a blind person who's never seen. There's nothing there.


So, just telling them that won't do it. You have to give them specifics. You have to give them little projects to do, that type of thing, as I described on the videotapes.


Those are just some of the general things that I wanted to tell about. I know that these are all part of the Incurables, but I wanted to accentuate them with the neuromuscular diseases.


Dr. Schulze uses full-spectrum programs practiced by Dr. Jensen and Dr. Christopher, but which are not done today.


SCHULZE: The biggest thing I learned from Dr. Christopher and Dr. Jensen is that their approach is what we could call full-spectrum. Everybody else I studied from, said, “For this disease you do this, and for this disease you do this.”


But with Dr. Jensen and Dr. Christopher, it was like a Claymore mine blew off. I mean, it wiped out everything. Everything from one end to the next.


You had tubes going in your butt, juices going in your mouth, skin brushing; and this is why it works. All these things people might say “Well gosh, I've done that.”  But they've never done it all at once and in the dosages we suggest.


These programs work, without a doubt, but you know what you find? Half-way towards doing all of these things, and at this intensity, the person or the practitioner will wimp out.


And only the boldest practitioners and the gutsiest patients will take it the other 50%; and the next thing you know, they're well.


BISER: At what point do they wimp out? What causes them to wimp out?


SCHULZE: I would say most of them right at the beginning (laugh) before they have to do anything. I mean, it's horrifying, it's so quick. I find that one of the hard parts is bowel cleaning. Because some of these people have already lost feeling in their bowel.


Now, you think that would have been a sign because they go “Well gosh, I don't know when I have to have a bowel movement, .and I've almost had accidents:" And so they go, “I don't want to do anything that's going to increase that.”  And that's their biggest gripe, and what you've got to do, you've got to get that bowel cleaned out.


A woman with myasthenia gravis is cured.


SCHULZE: When she came to me, she had noticed that her vision was blurring, her coordination was off, and she was starting to notice her facial muscles drooping, and she had a problem with swallowing.


She went to the medical doctors and after a couple of diagnoses they finally diagnosed her with myasthenia gravis, which is basically a neuromuscular disease.


BISER: And it gets hard to swallow?


SCHULZE: Yes. In fact, what it is, it's a multiple sclerosis, but it only affects the face and the nerves for the eye. From the eye to the throat to the face. So, the person starts going blind.


They said she would eventually go blind. She was already seeing so double that she couldn't even walk. By the time I saw her, her vision had doubled, and the doctor had even made these special glasses for her that were supposed to correct that, and they didn't work.


BISER: Would you say they could breathe? Do they choke to death?


SCHULZE: She was having problems breathing, problems swallowing and her facial muscles were drooping. In other words, they just hang, so her face looked pretty distorted. And the doctors basically said she had an autoimmune neuromuscular disease, myasthenia gravis.


It was going to kill her. She was going to go blind and eventually choke or suffocate to death, but they could prolong it by taking out her thymus. And of course, your thymus is one of your main immune organs. It's where your T-cells are “educated” by the body.


At that point, the patient and her family were totally horrified. That's when they walked into my office.


We did all the things that I talked to you about. I think in two days her father called me and said they had a miracle.


And one thing I find is that these diseases usually have an initial response that is quite dramatic. Because the body is really starving to death for the B vitamins, for the immune system to be stimulated, and for the nerve stimulators. In two days her vision had normalized, and they said, for all intents and purposes, most signs of the disease were gone.


They couldn't believe it, because the doctors had said again and again and again, “You're going to die. We'll take your thymus out, but you're going to go blind and choke to death or stop breathing.” You know, the classic medical nightmare.


She had some ups and down after that.


They kept worrying about going back to the doctor, and they'd go back to the doctor and he said, “Oh, it's normal to have positive lapses”, and he said, “This will go away, and you'll get worse”. And as soon as he said that, it did! You know what I'm saying? He scared her into getting worse.


They would come back here, and I would get her better again, but the long and short of it is, it was an uphill climb, and I would say in a matter of three or four months, ending about last Christmas, she was cured.


BISER: What did she say when she was cured? What did she tell you?


SCHULZE: Just absolutely amazed, but really I had to talk to her. One thing I have to do with neuromuscular disorders, is really counsel the people on not going back to their old way of life. Because I am convinced… know what they'd call this in the old days?




SCHULZE: A nervous breakdown. It's exactly what myasthenia gravis and all multiple sclerosis is. It's a nervous breakdown.


BISER: I think that's what Richard Pryor got — a nervous breakdown.


SCHULZE: That's right. Absolutely. It's too much stress. I have to tell these people they have to learn how to say the word “No”. Cut their commitments down. These are the types of people that you'll call, “Can you help me out?” And they go, “Yeah”, even though they don't have any time in their life; it's overloaded. I have to talk to these people about that, and reducing their stress. I mean, it's absolutely a gigantic factor.


But I have had many other cases of myasthenia gravis, and the worse thing, of course, a person can do, I mean imagine, is have a thymusectomy. The standard medical procedure for myasthenia gravis is to remove the thymus glands, which are a major immune component. Once the person has those glands removed, they no longer have the immune strength they used to. It's just a nightmare.


I've had numerous people come to me with myasthenia gravis who have recovered, but it's that classic old situation. You reverse what you've done to make yourself sick, and you get in your new programs and you get better.


Negative beliefs from doctors have killed many.


SCHULZE: When they tell someone, you know, “This is it,” people believe them. And especially when the doctor says you have multiple sclerosis. All that does is make you weaker.


And, I've had many patients come to me who couldn't get beyond that doctor's death sentence.


BISER: You mean, you couldn't get them better?


SCHULZE: No. They just didn't believe they could get better. Every visit they'd go, “But I can't believe I can get better.” And if you can't believe it, you won't. Nothing will happen, if you don't believe it.


BISER: So, were they doing the program or just a little?


SCHULZE: No, not really.


BISER: Because they believed they couldn’t.


SCHULZE: They believed they couldn't. They believed it was a waste of time. So why would anybody have, say the energy to do the Incurables, if they believed that it isn't going to work. Who's going to go with all that bother? I would say that some of my worst belief patients were ones with neuromuscular disease.


On the other hand, there are the dedicated ones who get well. There are those who have walked in the doors, limping on one leg and waddling, and hardly able to get up the steps. I used to watch one guy park his car a half-hour early. And you know how short it is from the street to my clinic.


BISER: It's nothing!


SCHULZE: Half an hour, it took him. I'd see him park, and I'd see him straining, and I didn't go out and help him. These people have to be ready to kick their own butt, if they want to get better. I would watch and it would take him a half hour to get to my door. And then another five minutes to get into my bathroom. That's the first thing he'd have to do is get to the bathroom.


But he believed. Because he was going to another healer who had helped him to a degree, and they said that I had helped people totally recover from multiple sclerosis. And he believed it, and he worked his butt off, and he did everything that we said, and of course, the bowel movements were a problem. You can imagine, it takes people like this ten minutes to get to the bathroom. They're afraid that if they clean out their bowels, they won't make it in time.


Who cares! This is the point that they have to get to and he got to that point. And he had a few accidents. OK, what's so bad about that?


BISER: He had MS, right?


SCHULZE: Yes. You haven't lived till you've pooped in your pants a few times. My God, we're talking about getting healed from multiple sclerosis here. So you have a few bowel movements in your pants. If that's the worst-case scenario, my God. So he did! He pooped in the bed a few times, and pooped in his pants a few times.


But the first thing that he started noticing was that his gait got better. He could walk up to the house.


Anybody who has muscular dystrophy or multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravis, or any neuromuscular disease has to realize they've had a nervous breakdown. Literally, their nervous system has broken down. It's not transmitting. These are called diseases of neuromuscular transmission. OK. So they've had a nervous breakdown. The circuit breakers have popped up. They're not transmitting positive nerve force to their nervous system, so they need to reduce their stress.


But that doesn't mean not doing anything or not moving. They need to reduce their stress level dramatically, but they also need to keep moving. They need to keep moving their body. Even though they walk funny keep walking. Even though they can't see well, keep reading and focusing.


BISER: Just don't compete, though.


SCHULZE: Yes, exactly. There's a big difference there. A lot of my neuromuscular disease people got there because of too much competition. Whether it was in school or taking too many courses. You know, I've had people1 come to me because they are taking a year and a half’s worth of college in a year, trying to graduate early. A lot of these people, across the board, have had tremendous family stress, job stress, and school stress put on them.


I see more and more college-age people with these diseases than ever before in history and it's because, I think, college students today have more stress on them than ever. All students do! My God, they do testing in the first grade now.


We never had tests in the first grade. We just tried not to poop on ourselves or throw up too much. Nowadays, they're having tests in the first grade, so, all the way across I think we're destroying the youth of our country because of so much stress and pressure.


And I think it's one of the reasons why we're having so many nervous breakdowns and neurological diseases than ever before.


BISER: OK. What do you use more on these people, the nerve regenerator formula or the B & B tincture of Dr. Christopher?


SCHULZE: The nerve stimulating formula. The B & B's kind of a strange formula. You know, I used a lot of it when Dr. Christopher was alive; but you know, he's been dead now for thirteen years, and I would say that the knowledge of nervine herbs has grown considerably.


And in the B & B he had black and blue cohosh, which are definitely anti-spasmodic herbs, and he had lobelia which is definitely an anti-spasmodic herb, and then he had skullcap which is kind of a nerve-stimulating herb. So it was a mixture going in both directions.


The B & B is still an OK formula, but I would put that in the anti-spasmodic category. So I look at that as a better formula for people with epilepsy.


When I look at people with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and neural transmission diseases, I look more at the nerve stimulators. I think these people would even do better with a cup of coffee, which is a great nerve stimulating herb.


Herbs with caffeine can help these diseases.


BISER: Yes, my wife Sandy has found that if she has, like, a small cup once a day, overall, she's better.


SCHULZE: Yes, it's a great tonic. It's kind of like echinacea. You want so take a break from it. You don't want to be on it everyday for the rest of your life. You want to take some weeks off, here and there.


But there's no doubt about it, it's a tonic. Cocaine is a tonic, used by the Indians. They chew the coca leaves. Kava Kava in the South Pacific, is a tonic. These are herbs that stimulate our nervous system and they're good.


Especially important for Sandy is to use coffee along with the B vitamins. The worst case scenario is to have it stimulate your nervous system, but not have the food it needs. But if she's piling in the super-food recipe and then has a cup of coffee every once in a while, that's a good nervous system stimulant routine. And there's nothing wrong with that at all. It's when people have ten cups a day that we get problems.


BISER: Have you ever had the people on the nerve breakdowns have a little coffee?


SCHULZE: No, but I have them use the caffeine herbs that are in the nerve stimulator formula.


BISER: How are they using the nerve formula. In the ear?


SCHULZE: No, just internally. Now, with myasthenia gravis, yes, then I go on the face and in the ear. But with the others, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, just internally is fine.


BISER: Do they do any compresses of nerve herbs?


SCHULZE: No, not unless they have a real localized area, but many times the MD and MS people don't have an area that you can put your finger on and say, “It's right here.”


You know, it's just an overall muscular problem, just over their whole body. Sometimes if it's localized around the hips, or the knees, or the shoulders, (it seems to be those three areas), then you can work specifically on those areas. If you can find a place you can put your finger on, then you can apply it.


BISER: If you can find a place, what do you do with it?


SCHULZE: Well, they can use the nerve stimulators right on that area.


BISER: And if they didn’t have one herb, they can use another?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely and the hot and cold applications right on that area. And then bodywork.


BISER: Does castor oil have any effect on these people?


SCHULZE: I always use castor oil as an external fomentation. It's one of the greatest, so why not? Then bodywork, too. These people really respond well to bodywork and exercise. They are two very important parts of the program. With a lot of people, the minute that body starts shaking, they stop exercising, which is the worst thing they could do.


BISER: So, this guy got better?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Occasionally he has a little, kind of a setback. But I think it's more emotional than physical. But, he's done 10 kilometer races here in Los Angeles.


I'm going to say he is 48 or 49 years old. It started when he was about 40 years of age, and he never knew what was going on for about the first year, until he was diagnosed. He's doing great.


Muscular dystrophy.


SCHULZE: The other disease in the group would be muscular dystrophy, which is again a progressive muscular disease. This one has less known about it than anything. There's no known cause, no known therapy; and they just lump people into this category.


I have had probably more people with muscular dystrophy come here than multiple sclerosis and myasthenia gravis put together. It's the biggest group.


If you have any senility these days, you get lumped into Alzheimer's disease. This is a big group of people. They're all very different. I would highly suggest that people, if they get diagnosed wish this, to ignore the diagnosis. It's just that they're lumping even-body into this group of muscular disorders.


BISER: And they just need the Incurables Program?


SCHULZE: That's right. Absolutely. Because I've had so many different people with muscular dystrophy over the years.


BISER: Were you able to cure them or just help them?


SCHULZE: Well, you know, it goes away. They don't have any symptoms of the disease anymore.


I was teaching a course for a couple of days and there was a woman who came up there to get healed with muscular dystrophy. I had her walking better in 24 hours, because I told her what a bunch of sh— it was. And she was feeling better and walking better.


Of course, we put massive herbs into her. And I'll tell you, every other therapist who had been up there was frightened to death by her. They wouldn't suggest anything. And she was the first one I latched onto. God, please give me the crippled. I want something I can sink my teeth into.


So I started working with her right away, and she was doing some hot and cold showers, large doses of the nervine herbs and I gave her a gigantic attitude adjustment, and the next day she was walking better in class, already.


So many of these people become crippled in the mind after what they go through, because the doctors tell them they have a progressive muscular disorder, and that they're going to waste away.


BISER: What's the largest dosage you've ever had to use of the nerve herbs?


SCHULZE: I would say about an ounce a day an ounce bottle a day. That's about five dropperfuls seven to nine times a day. And there's nothing wrong with doing that.


The only down-side to the nerve stimulators, is, of course, you get a little bit stimulated from them, ok? The only down-side to the antispasmodic herbs is that you can throw up.


So if you throw up on the antispasmodic herbs, mainly because of the lobelia, I'd just back off a little bit, or enjoy your vomit. (laughs) And if you get overstimulated with the nerve-stimulating herbs, just stop taking them that late at night. You know, try and cut the dosage down after about 6 o'clock.


I may go through a period where I stop the stimulating herbs, and put them on some nervine herbs and antispasmodic herbs for a couple of weeks for them to get relaxed.


The sedative herbs just take the edge off and allow your system to expand, but the stimulating herbs tighten it back up again. You need that. It's like hot and cold showers. That's the way Samuel Thompson used lobelia and cayenne, because you can call cayenne a nerve stimulator in a way, and I put it in the nerve restorer, and then he used lobelia as the antispasmodic.


BISER: Is lavender one of the sedative herbs?


SCHULZE: Yes, and lobelia's a great one. Lobelia can almost be thrown in either formula. It is an antispasmodic, but it can almost be used with either the nerve sedatives or the nerve stimulators. There's no real side effects to these herbs. Like I said, vomiting with the lobelia, over stimulation with the other ones. Probably the biggest problem is that people just aren't taking enough.


All in all, many of my patients have been in remission for years. Twelve years and more.


BISER: That's not the cycle where they go in and out of it?


SCHULZE: Oh, the cycle where they go in and out of it may be a week, two weeks. On the long end, maybe a month. Then you're going to get hit again hard. It's usually like a two-week to a 30-day thing.


BISER: So doctors can't say your recoveries are a temporary cycle?


SCHULZE: Yeah, well, they just say. “You're one of those lucky ones; that you've gone into remission.”


But you know, if you look at it from that standpoint, and I've mentioned this before with you, then I'm in remission with my heart disease. Doctors will never say to a cancer patient. “You're cured.”


BISER: So you're in remission?


SCHULZE: Yeah, exactly. I'm in remission, you're in remission, we’re all in remission, according to doctors.


I'll tell you; 3, 4, or 6 months go by of their remission and they're absolutely blissed-out, and that brings power. The more time goes by the more they throw the doctor's ideas away, and they grow right out of it.


“When the man with Parkinson's came in, his leg was tapping the floor so hard, it sounded like a jackhammer.”


SCHULZE: When he was in my office, I thought he was hammering something. I realized that it was the combination of his knee hitting the top of the desk and his foot bouncing on the floor. He was pretty uptight, but he couldn't stop, and his right hand was shaking.


BISER: What did you do for the shaking?


SCHULZE: I think the thing that we did different for him would be the nervine herbs; but we did a lot of hot and cold, which really helped.


I had him get a lot of body work down the spine, and on that arm, and on that leg to free up any muscles that could be tight. We all have tight muscles that pinch our nerves. We also did the herbs externally; also, we did a lot of the anti-spasmodic herbs like lobelia fomentation.


BISER: You did lobelia fomentations?


SCHULZE: On the leg, on the arm. We cooked a big pot of strong lobelia tea. I would say a quart pot — we probably had a handful of fresh lobelia. What we did is bring that pot to a boil, put the lobelia in, and shut it off, because you don't want to simmer lobelia. You just want to put it in boiling water and let it go.


BISER: Did you soak towels in it?


SCHULZE: Yes, we soaked towels in it and that gave him great relief. He was actually having pain on the nerves. He also had herpes zoster shingles. That was quite painful, and the lobelia really helped with that. Then, we also started adding in black cohosh, skullcap, and we used these herbs internally, too.


BISER: Why black cohosh?


SCHULZE: Black cohosh works very well internally for any type of nervous disease or spasm.


I've used black cohosh and I've seen epilepsy go away, where a person doesn't have any attacks due to brain injury or brain tumor.


With him, he felt relief even though, the next time he came, I didn't detect much of a difference. But he said there was a tremendous difference. He said he noticed a 50% difference. Maybe it was just when he was sitting in my office, you know, and I wasn't used to seeing someone banging their leg so much and moving their hands.


I would say with him it was about 30 days into it when I started noticing it. By the third time, I was noticing that he could breath, relax, let his muscles relax, and there would be vibration. But it wasn't like smashing the floor and the desk in my office.


We had him on large doses of black and blue cohosh, blue vervain, skullcap, lobelia, skunk cabbage, wild yam, the B&B tincture, separate doses of lobelia, a lot of juices for him. He also did some deep bodywork on the spine.


BISER: Did you put the fomentations along the spine?


SCHULZE: He did them on his whole body. He really got into it. He was even taking baths in these herbs.


BISER: Oh, so people can do that?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. If you've got a lot of areas to cover. He would fill up a bathtub about halfway and put in some salts and things, and then toss in that whole pot with the lobelia, cohosh roots — the whole thing right into the bathtub — and take an herbal tea soak.


BISER: Blue vervain or just the cohosh?


SCHULZE: We used them all. We used the whole B&B formula. The key four are black cohosh, the lobelia, wild yam and skunk cabbage.


They are real miracle workers. Blue vervain and the blue cohosh. I don't use blue cohosh that much, except for women. It's the old squaw root. It is a really good one right before they are going to have a baby. Ii does have a great history, but the black cohosh, the lobelia,' are just wonderful for the spasms. And, of course, his thing was he was a horrible eater. This guy had horrible digestion — and constipation.


BISER: You took care of all that.


SCHULZE: You know, it's amazing. To get your system to function this badly, you must have had years of minor dysfunctions that were ignored. He had hemorrhoids from constipation. Instead of doing something about it, he had the hemorrhoid operation.


BISER: Did he ever get cured?


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. No doctor ever said, “you don't have it anymore,” but he got to where he had no tremors at all. No tremors in his leg. No tremors in his arm. He was thrilled about it because he didn't want to retire, but he couldn't write anymore. When he tried to write it looked like an electroencephalogram across the piece of paper.


BISER: But he got to where he could write?


SCHULZE: He got to where he could write, walk, and had no twitching.


BISER: How long? Over a year?


SCHULZE: I'm going to say in less than that. I'm going to say 6-8 months to where it was gone, but then occasionally, at night, he would be sitting in his chair and the tremors would come back.


It was up and down, but it was all going downward. I think in about 6 or 8 months he had no tremors at all. They would come back once a week, then once every 10 days.


I'm sure by the end of a year he wasn't having anything. He again had some relapses. Of course, it was when he had gone to someone's house for his birthday or whatever, and eaten some horrible food and gotten a little constipated. I always see this.


One thing that's great is when your body gets this ill, you can get it better. But if you get too far off track, the same thing just comes back. But what's amazing about it is when the patient sees that.


BISER: They get the point, huh?


SCHULZE: They get the point really good.


A man cured of Lou Gehrig’s disease.


BISER: This is one man you mentioned on the videotapes.


SCHULZE: That's right. He couldn't speak when he first came to see me. That is what the person who brought him said. But I got him talking. It was like “awwawwwaww”. He just didn't want to speak. And he was absolutely convinced that he was going to die.


I can't remember; for some reason, I think he was a dentist. But whether he was a dentist or a doctor, he practiced, I believe, at UCLA, so he knew that once you're diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), you get worse and you die. And he had it, I think, 3 years before I saw him.


BISER: Why did he come to you if he knew he was going to die?


SCHULZE: Relatives. Relatives pushed him to come. He didn't want to. He didn't believe in it. As many times along the treatment as he started getting better, he would say, "Well, it's just a temporary remission."


One day, I finally just threw him out of my office. I said, “You know what, you're getting better. Everybody around you knows you're getting better. Your symptoms are reduced. But, you know, you're such a non-believer.”   I said, “Get the hell out of my office.”


And he said, “What are you talking about?”  And I remember I grabbed him right by the back of the jacket, and threw him out my front door, and shut the door.


About 5 minutes later, I heard a knock on my door and I opened the door, and he said, “I want to come back.”  And I go, “Why? You don't believe you can be well.”  And he goes, “Well, no.” And I said. “Get out” and I shut the door again.


We did this about 5 times until he finally said, “Okay, okay.”  He came in and sat down. And I said, “Look, there's only so much the herbs and the foods and all this is going to do.”  I said, “If you don't believe that you can be well because of your stupid medical training, you're refusing to look at the symptoms that you have.”


I said, “You're getting better. Your speech is better, your facial muscles are better, the strength in your arms is better, you're walking normally.” And I said, “You're just refusing to look at this.” He finally started looking at it. His big thing was he couldn't abandon everything he had spent a hundred thousand dollars and 10 years to learn. It was too much....


BISER: So what resolution did you and he come to?


SCHULZE: We came to a resolution that he could keep everything he's learned in medicine, except the fact that maybe you can get better from this one disease. I said, “You can believe everything else you want from medicine, but maybe there's one area where they're wrong.” And so he said, “Okay, maybe you're right.”


Quadriplegics & paraplegics: can they be cured with natural healing?


BISER: Richard, have you ever had quadriplegics paralyzed from the neck down, or is that really hopeless?


SCHULZE: Let me put it this way, we'll have to go back to what Dr. Christopher said. He said “There's no incurable disease, just incurable people.”


I don't meet them immediately. I meet them after years and years of being in this situation; and every doctor, every neurologist, every neurospecialist they've met has told them that they'll never move for the rest of their life.


And so that “food” is hard to go against. I mean, they've digested it and they've assimilated it, and it's like, even with people with multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy, or any of these where the doctors have said, “There's no cure, you're going to get worse and die...”


You know, quadriplegics and paraplegics have been given a heavy sentence of paralysis from the doctors, from the so-called specialists, and they don't believe a cure is possible.


When you’re moving a muscle, an arm, a leg, or a foot that is cut off from its nerve supply, you can't imagine how hard that is. It goes beyond thought.


You have to psych yourself up. I relate this to the martial arts, because I was the 1971 brick-breaking champion of New York State, and you can't put your fist through a dozen concrete blocks with just strength any more.


It has to come from somewhere much deeper. The Japanese call it “ki”, the Chinese call it “chi”, the Indians “prana”. You have to go inside and find this internal energy or God, but you can't just do it from fear.


BISER: So, you’ve never had such a case that's recovered?


SCHULZE: Yes, I have, but it's rare, because those people have had so much bad programming. You know, I've seen even some quick results. I think I told you about this kid, I'm going to guess he was about 12, in Utah. I wheeled him in his wheelchair right into the stream, and we gave him big doses of the nerve restorer, and within 12 hours he had a twitch in his leg.


BISER: Was he a paraplegic?


SCHULZE: Yes, a paraplegic, paralyzed from the mid-thoracic vertebrae down; no movement in his legs.


BISER: So within 12 hours after nerve herbs and cold water...


SCHULZE: Yes, and he had been paralyzed since he was about 2 months old and he was now 12. But, now, we're dealing with a kid. This kid looked at me and I said "This can happen" and he believed it, but when you're dealing with a 30-40 year old, it's different.


BISER: So even though you've never done it, you believe it can happen?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely, absolutely. In fact, I've met people that it's happened to.


BISER: Oh, you did? You mean they've told you, “I was a paraplegic”?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. One of the greatest things about being a teacher is in my travels where I teach, people come to me to tell me what they've done. I'm going to say dozens of people recovered who were not supposed to walk again, usually with spinal injuries, who were paralyzed from, let's say, the navel down.


A man recovers from total paralysis from the neck down.


BISER: Have you ever met anyone who recovered from paralysis from the neck down?


SCHULZE: You know, there was a surfer in California. I don't have all the pieces to this story, but he drove his head right into the sand, broke his neck and was paralyzed.


He was a quadriplegic. He had some massive internal injuries, too, and I remember hearing on the street that he was up and about. And he said that he had basically broken his neck, but he believed he could be well and put himself back together.


BISER: Did he use herbs?


SCHULZE: Yes, but nothing like what we would talk about. He used mainly things internal. This was actually in Solana Beach, down in the north county of San Diego, and he was a big believer. I met him in a juice bar down there, and he was a big believer in juice therapy, but he had done nothing much beyond that. Oh, and a lot of bodywork.


BISER: And his nerves in his neck regenerated?


SCHULZE: Yes, and he got everything back. He was paralyzed. He limped. At first, he had nothing from the neck down, but then he worked himself into moving arms, moving legs, getting lots of bodywork, and I think he juice-fasted for something like half a year, and put himself totally back together. But that's quite rare. I don't mean it's rare to be able to do it, I just think it's rare to find someone.


BISER: Anybody who can fight that hard?


SCHULZE: Yes. But I'm going to say a couple of dozen, with paralysis from the mid-navel down, who have brought it back. I think the biggest factor is that you really have to work at it.


I mean, I've had some injuries, and I couldn't move the area, and it doesn't matter how much you think and how much you want to, it's hard to imagine. It's like you're frozen. It's like a dream. And those people just need to put out 110%, and of course, you have every doctor saying it can't happen.



Chapter 31: Children


The programs in this SAVE-YOUR-LIFE Collection cure children whom medicine cannot help. They cure children who would be killed by barbaric “anti-healing” drugs and surgical programs used in hospitals.


On videotape Volume Twelve, you learned how to adjust an adult dose downward for children. You also learned that, in serious cases, the child may have to get onto the adult dose as fast as possible.


In some cases, procedures have to be modified for children and for the elderly. That is the purpose of this chapter.


Childhood leukemia and garlic.


BISER: Have you had any children with leukemia?


SCHULZE: Yes, and children are harder because Dr. Christopher said you are paying for the sins of the parents.


Children are born so genetically weak that they have leukemia or something that started genetically back with the parents.


I have had a lot of child survivors. I think one of the reasons is that the kids don't buy into all of the negativity. They are not so affected by what the doctors say. That is a great blow to older people when doctors tell them they are going to die.


The toughest part with the children is getting them to absolutely make a 100% change in their food program. I've had a lot of three and four-year-olds with leukemia who were pretty much given the death sentence who have pulled out, who responded — but this is the key here — an absolute change.


We are talking fruits, vegetables, juice therapy. It's very powerful and the parent has to take everything away from the child. No treats, no junk food, no animal foods. And, of course, the herbs. The herbs are so powerful for changing the blood.


And garlic is a big one and you have got to get it into the kid.


Garlic is specific for leukemia.


SCHULZE: One of the big things is getting that garlic in large amounts into the kids.


BISER: What kinds of amounts?


SCHULZE: At least 3 cloves a day — even for a four-year-old.


You have to chop it up and put it into gelatin capsules and get it down them. Garlic absolutely inhibits the growth of leukemia in the body. It stops the white blood cells from clumping together, which increases the spread of leukemia. A lot of people lighten up too much with the kids.


I almost think it's worse with the kids because they didn't start with a chance. They were crippled by what their parents did before them. These kids die really quickly of leukemia. Medicine has a very low success rate with them.


BISER: I thought medicine was successful with childhood leukemia?


SCHULZE: Oh no. Not like you think. They are killing them left and right. Otherwise, why would parents bring their kids to me with childhood leukemia? Sometimes it's because the prognosis is so horrible. Other times, all they have to do is walk into the Ronald McDonald wing of Children's Hospital to these cancer centers, and see the nightmares that are going on in there. That makes them want to do something different.


A 3-year-old with leukemia has a clean blood test after six to eight months on the program.


BISER: Do you remember any kids, specifically?


SCHULZE: I had a little boy 3 years old with childhood leukemia.


His parents were not Christian Scientists, but they really didn't believe in a lot of medical intervention. Also, I think they had some relatives who died after chemotherapy and that is usually a good sale.


The boy was just at the beginning stages of it; he wasn't anemic yet, and hadn't had any blood transfusions. It was nice because he hadn't had any medical therapy. I've had kids who have had the chemotherapy and don't have any hair.


BISER: How bad was his leukemia?


SCHULZE: He was given 3 years to live with therapy.


They never really say. They say he could live 3 years; he could live 5 years; he could be dead in a year.


It depends on how quickly it advances, and that is why they use the chemotherapy. His parents didn't want to go that route.


They had already lived a fairly healthy life-style. He worked really well on the program, and I think within 6-8 months his blood tests were clean.


In four months, all the blood that is in your body is gone and you have new blood. What determines the quality of the new blood is what you are doing during those 4 months.


Personally, I think that if anybody with leukemia does the right work, they should not have it in 4 months.


Medicine says you can grow new stomach lining in 5 days, and I've had people with bleeding ulcers be totally well in 3 days. I think we can do it even faster, and I don't see any reason why anybody should have leukemia four months from when they begin the program.


He was fine. One of the things about leukemia is that kids don't notice much, except all of a sudden they become anemic, and they have a loss of energy. Adults sometimes don't notice much of anything. However, there are always 20 different signs and symptoms that they have ignored


Leukemia is also diagnosed because the actual cell can be seen. You can see the mutated blood cell. The question is really, with any type of cancer, especially leukemia, why isn't our immune system taking care of us? And it's not taking care of us because it's been beaten down too much by our life-style and our environment.


Brain tumors and leukemia in children.


BISER: Richard, any advice for parents who have children with brain tumors or leukemia?


SCHULZE: Work hard. Don't think that by giving your kids some treats, you are going to make them better.


Most of these kids are tougher than you are.


I'm amazed. When I put kids on these programs, they do them more diligently and without the drama you see in the parents.


Most of the time, the parents are thinking, “Oh, I can't do this to my kid,” but the kids don't have any problem with it.


We've had thousands of kids on the full Incurables Program. It’s going to take a lot of work.


The incidence rate of childhood leukemia was almost non-existent prior to vaccination. You know, I think what's happened: We’ve bombarded these kids' immune systems with so many toxins, so many poisons, and they weren't even that strong to begin with when they were born. So they are just overloaded.


We have found that the kids tolerated these cleansing programs just fine. Start out light, unless they're dying on you, and then increase it as far as you can. These kids are tough. It's amazing what they put up with and what they can do. We have the kids do the full incurables program and put many of them on the adult dosages of everything in the program, and I'm talking 4, 5 and 6 year olds.


BISER: So that's your main advice for the parents: "Don't go easy on the kids."


SCHULZE: Yes, don't go easy on them. They know what's going on.


These kids are pretty smart and they're willing to take that strong role in their own healing process.


And I have kids doing castor oil packs, and hot and cold showers, and enemas, and raw food programs, and carrot juice, and garlic in capsules, and intestinal corrective herbs and all these things. Kids tolerate it fine. The parents are the ones who wimp out.


BISER: Do the parents of these kids ever not use enough castor oil in the packs, and things like that?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. You know, they tend to lighten it up. I find that the grandparents initiate the programs better. So, sometimes they say for the parents to get out of the way a little bit, and let the grandparents come in. I find that a lot more grandparents read your newsletter.


Now; this is something that's important for everybody. Staying the same is OK. In other words, a lot of people think that we should see dramatic changes. What we don't want to see is changes for the worst. But staying the same isn't that bad.


A lot of times, it takes the body a long time to build itself up, to really get in there and start making some changes.


But, they felt they wanted to see something different, and then they started worrying that he or she wasn't getting enough protein, and started in with some animal foods, and went to a "psychic", and the psychic said she needed beef or something, and so they started fooling around with the program, and it was very interesting.


These kids are doing very well, but the minute they start fooling with the program, they get worse. The problem is commitment.


BISER: So the kids don't get the program the way you wrote it out?


SCHULZE: No, and this happens so often. Usually, the grandparents are a little better at it, because they have a little less faith in medicine. Natural healing comes a little more digestible to them because of their age.


The cold sheet treatment for children.


BISER: What's the youngest you've seen get cold sheets? Babies?


SCHULZE: Six months old. There’s no reason they can't do it. I've worked with thousands of small children with the cold sheet treatment. It saves them from death.


You start out with an enema.


BISER: What about the rectal insertion of garlic?


SCHULZE: Well, that is one thing you lighten up on. That's step number-two. So step number one, everybody gets an enema. That's across the board. Everybody can get a catnip enema, red raspberry enema, or use any type of herbal enema they want.

Now the second step is the apple cider vinegar and water base with the garlic cloves in it. You modify that for the very young.


You can't do that with a baby. What you could do is a very mild solution of that if the baby was quite sick. This would be, generally speaking, for the adult cold sheet treatment: eight ounces of apple cider vinegar, eight ounces of distilled water and put that in a blender with about eight or ten cloves of garlic. That's enough to really send an adult into a good cleanse. And that's a mild way of putting it.


For a baby, you could use the tiniest bit of garlic. Use the same amount of base, eight ounces and eight ounces, even though you're not going to get anywhere near that into them, and you could use just a sliver of garlic in there — just to get an essence of garlic in.


But that's nowhere near a whole clove. Not even half a clove. And you could do the same for an older person. Everything we are saying far children applies to elderly people.


BISER: What about putting the six-month-old baby in the tub with that water?


SCHULZE: Oh, that's fine. Once you do the garlic injection, which nobody holds onto long, and a baby will let out right away, then the next step is the hot tub.


Now, the full dosage formula is the hot tub with at least an ounce of cayenne, ginger and mustard powder in a muslin bag, so that the whole bath is a hot tea; and you cover your genitals with vaseline.


For a baby or an old person, you can just use a hot bath and forget the cayenne, ginger and mustard. For a baby, that's too irritating. Now, again, it depends. If this is a baby dying of pneumonia, and you're in the middle of nowhere, hey, what do you have to lose?


But, for most people who are reading this and their baby's running, we'll say, a hundred and two or above fever, that would definitely be a time to do the cold sheet treatment. Skip the herbs in there and just run a hot bath.


The baby still takes the hot bath, and you start it out warm. Once the baby's in there, you add more and more hot water. Babies can take the same temperature water that we can. And then while that baby's in there, give it a bottle with some herb tea in it.


BISER: Yarrow, or not?


SCHULZE: Yarrow is a little bit too strong for them.


BISER: What do you do?


SCHULZE: What we're trying to do with the baby is just rehydrate them.


Make sure that they have plenty of liquid in them.


So you can use a little catnip tea, or a little ginger tea, if you want a digestive, you can get some peppermint in there. A little bit of lavender even works really nice.


Babies like it mild. But almost any herbal tea will do. The key with kids is to dilute it to where it's almost like colored water. And then have them drink as much as they can drink, and usually, you know, we put it in a bottle. The only time we use a bottle is with herb tea.


BISER: How long is the baby or the old person in?


SCHULZE: A maximum of fifteen minutes — that's about it.


BISER: How long is an adult in?


SCHULZE: An adult, you keep in until they're begging you to get out, and then even longer.


BISER: But when is that?


SCHULZE: Very rarely does anybody make it past the half hour. And then, you know, of course the next step in the cold sheet treatment is to get them out and wrap them in a cold sheet.


BISER: What about this ice thing with the baby?


SCHULZE: It's also a little bit too intense. To modify that what I do is just get the babies out and, run a warm shower, and then just slowly turn that hot water off till it gets cool and cold, and then a little full cold blast on the baby.


So, with babies, a cool to a cold wash. But not for long. You give them about a minute of that.


BISER: And you cover them up?


SCHULZE: Then wrap them up and put them in a nice warm sweatsuit natural fibers, of course.


You don't have to do the garlic paste on the feet with babies. It's almost impossible, but what I would suggest is to make sure that you get these babies breast feeding. So mom needs, at this point, to have consumed, oh, we'll say, ten cloves of garlic over a day's period.


Garlic is one of the few things that will penetrate through that breast milk. You could put a garlic poultice on a kid's foot, but it's not going to do that much, and it's very difficult to do.


BISER: Because he's going to wiggle all the time?


SCHULZE: It's a nightmare. I've done it. The best way is just have mum load herself up with raw garlic, ten or twelve cloves, as much as she can get down during the day, and then just keep breast feeding that baby. And the key is, to put that baby on the nipple constantly during this, because the only fear, to anybody with a fever, is dehydration.


BISER: The baby's parents are going to worry. You know what they're worried about? “I'm going to kill my baby by doing this.”


SCHULZE: Oh, yeah. The real key is, if you want to kill your baby, take him to the hospital, because they'll suppress the fever with one thing or another. The bacteria or virus will overgrow, and then, you'll have a dead baby on your hands and they'll claim it was the disease.


BISER: You know that someone will frighten the parents into thinking that they are harming their child.


SCHULZE: Oh God, not at all. In fact, it's a brilliant routine for children. Just don't tell anyone you did this, because the laws concerning children are becoming more and more medical. The health authorities would consider this a dangerous treatment, if they knew you did it. They could take your kids away, or you could go to jail.


Diabetes in children.


BISER: Richard, any advice for children with diabetes?


SCHULZE: The main thing is that the kids are so subjected to sugar. Their food program is very high in sugar.


BISER: Doesn't everybody know this?


SCHULZE: You'd think they would. Do you know how many diabetic kids I've seen drinking Coca-Cola?


People don't realize that Coca-Cola has about a teaspoon of sugar for every ounce of Coca-Cola. I see all these kids on their sweetened foods, and of course, a lot of parents think that, well, honey or maple syrup is OK.


Hey, sugar is sugar: and when you have a hard problem using sugar, you've got to get off it until your body can handle it -again. That's all sugars. Even sometimes your really sweet fruits like raisins. Even your juices, whether you're using vegetable or fruit juices. I'd dilute them half and half with water. Otherwise, they're even too intense for these diabetics.


But with children who are diabetics, it's quite serious because now they're dealing with what Dr. Christopher said are "sins of the parents'. So. the first thing, you've got to get them off the sweet foots program and get them onto a good solid healthy food program.


BISER: Does garlic help children with diabetes?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely, yes. I've worked with it with a lot of kids.  In fact, everybody who comes to me with diabetes has to get on a program of garlic; and it works really well.


I easily get three cloves a day into kids. Just chop it up and put it inside capsules. We've had a lot of kids with diabetes start down that path, where the doctor says, “We need to take some pills,” and then the next thing is, they're suggesting intravenous. We've turned it right around. Right back to nothing. But you know, these kids have gotten off to a bad start and it takes a little bit of work to correct it. But, once they're on the right track, oh gosh, they never have a problem again.


BISER: Now, Richard, does garlic have a mild blood sugar-lowering action or a strong one?


SCHULZE: I think it's incredibly strong. Of course, when you're testing for your blood sugar, you can see results every day. I've seen people reduce their insulin by half in a week.


Children and heart disease.


BISER: What can you tell me about children and heart disease? We’ve talked about adults; we’ve talked about packs on their chest and all that. Anything special on children?


SCHULZE: Yes, a couple of general thoughts. It used to be thought that heart disease in children was genetic... obviously a child couldn't develop hardening of the arteries.


Nowadays, with more children dying and having autopsies, doctors know that arteriosclerosis starts at 3 and 4 years old. So, with children, we're also dealing with high cholesterol levels.


I've had kids in here with cholesterol levels of 200 and 300. Obviously, children's diets today are worse than ever. The key is to give them tremendous amounts of the heart food, like hawthorn berries. They can be on a steady diet of it.


Hawthorn berries have a lot of pectin in them. You can use them easily to make baby food. So you can take hawthorn berries and either soak them in water and/or other herb teas, and churn it up into a mash. It makes a gorgeous baby food. Babies love it. You can spoon it right down.


It doesn't work well in the bottles because there's so much pectin in the hawthorn, but when you get babies who are about six months old, they're going to want to put things in their mouth anyway, and they love hawthorn. You can always mix it up with a little bit of banana and some other fruit. Banana and hawthorn really work well. Babies can be on an almost steady diet of that for their heart.


BISER: You’ve saved babies with congenital heart disease?


SCHULZE: Oh God, we've had them with disease that makes my own case look wimpy. We have had them with holes in their hearts.


BISER: And hawthorn healed it?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. I can't praise that particular plant enough.


The chemists acknowledge now what hawthorn does to protect the heart. I always like to use the's like milk thistle for the heart. Everybody goes, “Oh, yes, milk thistle binds to the liver cells and protects them.”


Well, hawthorn does the same for the heart. It prevents any future damage from occurring, and if something does happen, then there is less damage to the heart. It's highly documented and works great. The old herbalists from England knew this, and it has always been the most popular heart herb throughout Europe. It was really Dr. Christopher who got it going in this country.


Another thing I want to mention is that I have given two-day and one-day-old babies cayenne tincture.


Cayenne tincture saves a six-hour-old baby.


BISER: Oh you have? For what?


SCHULZE: When they weren't going to live. Too much birth trauma, or mom and dad weren't healthy enough, and these babies were on the edge of not breathing.


BISER: You thought they might not live?


SCHULZE: Yes. In fact, I did it for the first time about twenty years ago, and the mom was absolutely collapsed. She had hemorrhaged during delivery, and so the midwives were taking care of her. Dad was just overloaded. He just couldn't handle anything. And I was there with the baby, and the baby wasn't breathing well. It was about, oh, I'm going to say, about six hours old.


I gave it one drop of cayenne tincture, which every book I've ever read said, “Don't. That's contra indicated.” But when you're sitting there with a six-hour-old baby who's not going to make it, you have to do something.


BISER: And you gave it one drop?


SCHULZE: I gave it one drop, and boy, it's eyes opened up. It started screaming; it coughed probably an eighth of a cup of mucous out of it's lungs.


I did it probably about ten more times in the next twelve hours. And that kid's now eighteen years old and hates me. But I've used it with lots of babies, and now it is standard practice with the midwives in Utah. Because I told the story so many times, the midwife organizations have adopted it, and now they all do it.


They, in fact, use my cayenne balm on the babies after they're born to rub in their spine, and they say it's the greatest thing for bringing around a baby.


One of the top midwives, the head of a midwives association, says that with every baby they put a little cayenne salve on their hands and rub it into its back. They say it is the greatest for bringing babies to the planet.


You don't have to be afraid about giving the baby a little cayenne tincture. It's quite intense, and they'll scream and cry, but it'll get them to cough up stuff. You can always dilute it a little bit if you want to.


We've handled a lot of cases of babies with extremely high fevers, like 103, 104 fevers, all the way to severe tonsillitis and infection. We use the cold sheet treatment.


When you start treating the body the way that it wants to go, these things go away very rapidly, usually as rapidly as they come up. The only time I ever see the horrible things happen is in the hospital.


BISER: Is that where the infection goes so fast that the baby goes into cardiac arrest?


SCHULZE: Yes, exactly. And much of this occurs because medicine goes against what the body is trying to do.


Our first lines of immune cell defense are called macrophages. When they go and find infection, we'll say bacterial or virus, and they start to eat it, but it's kind of like in the old cowboy movies, where they looked up and were chasing four Indians and they came over the hill and found four million and they went “Holy sh--!”


Well, when the macrophages go “holy sh—“, they run back to the deep immune areas of the body to find the T-cells and the B-cells to tell them that there's a major invasion. But all along the way when they're running back, they're, like, wetting themselves...


I'm trying to draw an analogy here; they're pissing on themselves. What they're wetting themselves with is a chemical called interleukin-1, which, when it's released by the macrophages, stimulates a fever to heat up your body. This is what actually starts the fever process.


Again, for every degree of temperature rise in the body, the .macrophages can go twice as fast back, and the T-cells can go twice as fast forward to kill it. So, if there's a big infection, the macrophages keep excreting interleukin-1 and the fever goes to 101, 102, 103 to create the healing process.


That baby goes in the hospital, and the first thing they hit it are drugs to reduce the fever.


BISER: Then the next thing is the white blood cells slow down...


SCHULZE: That's right. And then the white blood cells slow down and the bacteria and the viruses go absolutely wild. Without realizing it, doctors have done the best thing they could for the bacteria and the-virus — not for the baby.


This is absolutely against what your body is trying to do.


The biggest danger to a kid that's this ill is a doctor or a hospital.


Medical procedures are absolutely against what the human body is trying to do, and needs to do. This knowledge is in the immune test books today, but most people don't read them.


Oh, into the year 2000, I guarantee everybody is going to look back on the second half of the century and see it as the absolute Dark Ages of medicine. We have killed millions of children.



Chapter 32: Pain


Incurable diseases can have incurable pain.


The information in this chapter can stop that pain, often in seven to ten days. Natural healing is not a therapeutic runt.


It can cure pain that morphine cannot quench. Learn how


BISER: Let's say people are in horrible pain from cancer or other diseases. Is there anything in natural healing that really helps pain, or is there nothing much to do?


SCHULZE: Lobelia can be effective, but it's more of an anti-spasmodic. St. John's wort is an effective herb toward nerve pain, and in other types of pain. Take it internally and put it externally right on the area. Of course, you have your salicylic acid plants for inflammation, like willow, meadow sweet, even wintergreen. So it really depends on the type of pain.


BISER: I am talking about really bad pain. We're talking about incurables. They are in big trouble. I heard about one man who was in a car accident who was just screaming and yelling from pain.


SCHULZE: Lobelia relaxes the body, and it tends to ease the pain dramatically But unfortunately, most of the good herbs for pain, which would be opium and marijuana, have been made illegal for everybody to use. So unfortunately, we are very limited in what we can use.


The ultimate pain reliever that God has provided for us is the opium poppy.  It has so many alkaloids, science doesn't even know all that's in it. It includes morphine, codeine; and heroin is synthesized from it, too. A little bit of opium is wonderful for relieving the pain, but no one is going to be able to get it.


BISERYou’re not going to get it in the hospitals, am I right? No doctor is going to prescribe it.


SCHULZE: They are going to give you something that comes so far from opium that it can't be recognized.


I've found chat in extreme pain, the only thing chat works is ice. Ice gets you through it. Where tissue is missing and you have a hole us your body, ice is about the only thing you can use to virtually freeze the area. And it's limited on how much you can use it, but it will get you through it. There is no doubt about it.


So I'd suggest, stay away from prescription drugs and just use ice and ice packs to freeze the area, to cool it, to calm it down so you're not in pain. It works fine. I had fourth degree burns and ice worked fine. I didn't have to use any pain relief.


BISER: So that works even better than St. John’s wort?


SCHULZE: Yeah, it works better than anything. The ice is for when the pain is absolutely extreme.


For me, it was the only thing that would stop the pain.


BISER: How long do you use it?


SCHULZE: Well, I would put an ice pack, not directly against the skin but put the ice in a pack and wet it and I would put it right on the hand It's a matter of applying it for 10 minutes, and then taking it off, and then applying it again.


But it will get you through the crisis of the pain. Some nights I used to go to sleep and leave that ice on and I would absolutely wake up when the packs melted or fell off, and I would be in quite severe pain.


BISER: Even with all the herbs you knew, it came down to ice.


SCHULZE: Absolutely: Normally, in another country, what you would use would be a tincture of opium, which used to be available in the United States.


In other countries, it would be cannabis. Those are the two. Opium is the drug of choice around the world. Even in many countries in Europe, you can still buy cannabis and tincture it, and that's usable as an herbal remedy for pain.


BISER: But that helps, even in horrible pain?


SCHULZE: Yes, medical doctors in the United States are allowed to prescribe cannabis for the pain of cancer.


BISER: But don't they normally just use morphine and not even worry about marijuana?


SCHULZE: They found that marijuana seems to work better for cancer pain, and so they actually prescribe it more for certain types of cancer. With other types of cancer, they use morphine.


Yet, in the final stages when a person has been really tortured, burned, mutilated by medicine, there is nothing that helps. There are cancer patients that lie in bed and scream until they die. They can't control the pain at all. "


BISER: In those cases, nothing helps?


SCHULZE: Nothing. But that is because of the medical intervention.


That is, obviously, not because of any natural therapies that were done. These people were burned from the radiation, and poisoned from the chemotherapy and cut-up. Many times, unfortunately, that is the end result of working with medicine.


The relatives of those people always undergo natural healing, because they have seen their loved ones die in so much pain.


Generally speaking, I find that people who undergo natural therapies have very little pain. It's the people who go under the chemotherapy and the radiation who have the real pain.


“Within a week, I've had many people off their morphine altogether. And they couldn't believe it.”


BISER: In a lot of cases, herbs could help?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. It's not so much an herb for pain — it's just the general overall program.


By changing the food program, starting the cleansing and detoxification process, cleaning out that liver, and getting the bowel working, I find the patient's need for morphine reduces dramatically.


Just cleaning and detoxifying the body and stimulating the elimination in an indirect way took the pain away. I've had that happen with hundreds of cancer patients.


Many of my patients, when they start taking the natural treatments and doing the Incurables Program, don't even have to use the pain medication. I've had numerous patients with cancer on morphine, who I have had off the morphine in a week's time. I've had numerous patients on morphine who didn't need it anymore. We started lowering their dosage right away.


I had one man who was in agonizing pain with his prostate cancer. This man was on morphine 3, 4, and 5 times a day. And he was off his morphine in less than a week. This is the one thing that is so powerful about the Incurables Program.


I would say 7 out of 10 of my patients in the first week are totally off the morphine. They are amazed.


The body starts to applaud your efforts. For maybe the first time in your life, you stopped doing things that you were doing that are irritating, and you've added in all these wonderful things that are helping. You have taken the pressure off.


Menstrual pain: use hot water on the pubic bone.


SCHULZE: Just when it's really hurting, take a very hot water bottle and put it on the pubic bone between the navel and the pubic bone. Just put it over that area. It's unbelievable. It just adds such relief. Many times it stops the spasm in the uterus right away because it's heat. And you are drawing your blood right out of the uterus to the surface of the skin.


BISER: So, you don't have to do hot and cold, just hot?


SCHULZE: Just hot. It's a miracle. You can also use this to ease intestinal cramping.



Chapter 33: Conclusion


It's time to go now, but I want to leave you with something.


I want to take you through the front door of “healing techniques” all the way to the back room of philosophy, where it all begins.


Natural healing is a different philosophy — not a different set of medicines. Herbs are not natural replacements for drugs, although many people seem to use them that way.


Natural healing and medicine have a different comprehension of the human body Natural healing, as taught in this SAVE-YOUR-LIFE Collection, believes that the body is intelligent and can kill its own tumors and regenerate its own damaged and lost tissues.


Medicine believes the body is stupid — or intelligent only to a point. Medicine does not believe the body can kill tumors. It believes that when it comes to tumors, the body is stupid and helpless. It believes that it must poison or irradiate cancerous bodies to kill the tumors the body won't deal with.


Medicine does not believe the body can regenerate lost tissue, like a damaged hip. So, it concentrates on creating artificial body parts, hips and hearts, and whatever else it can manufacture.


Natural healing, as taught here, believes that the body contains, within itself, all the genetic plans and specifications to repair and regenerate any tissues — including brain tissue. What medicine regards as incurable, natural healing can cure through an expanded awareness of body powers.


I know a woman who is being poisoned to death to cure her cancer. What are doctors doing to strengthen her body? Nothing. I see television shows of children suffering with leukemia and bone cancer, and I see the horrors the children and parents go through. This is called scientific and advanced, while the natural healing I believe in is called primitive and useless. I laugh at my critics.


Again, what is being done to strengthen the bodies of these poor children? NOTHING. Absolutely nothing! I see pictures of them eating french fries, milk shakes, burgers, and jello. How will these foods build the children's immune systems and help their bodies kill these cancers? They won't. If only Richard Schulze could introduce his methods into these backward hospitals.


Whenever I am ill, friends of mine say, “You had better go to the doctor?” Why — to get an inferior kind of healing? For a diagnosis, maybe, but that's it. I once went to an internist when I had a flu that was out of control. To me, it seemed more like a stress breakdown than a flu. I had not eaten for days, because I was too nauseous.


The doctor told me my blood sugar was surprisingly high for someone who had not eaten anything. Yet, in spite of that observation, she recommended lots of sugary Gatorade which made my blood sugar worse. It was only when I used natural methods to lower the blood sugar that I cured myself.


As this and many other examples have shown me, medical technology is not a substitute for a healing philosophy More big medical centers are not the answer to the pains of mankind. If the poor are suffering, the answer to their inability to pay for operations and other care is not free medicine for all.


Give natural healing to the masses. Teach them how powerful their bodies are. Teach the poor to heal themselves at home. Give them the power that now belongs to the men in white coats. That is the purpose of my SAVE-YOUR-LIFE Collection.


Drugs versus herbs: are herbs as powerful?


BISER: People think that if you want to affect a serious disease, you have to use a drug because natural healing is not strong enough.


SCHULZE: I know they think that, but they are wrong.


Drugs were designed by taking one chemical out of an herb, isolating it, concentrating it, and giving it to a person in extremely large doses. Because of that, we have the Physician's Desk Reference with 3,000 pages filled with the diseases, the cancer, the heart disease, the liver disease, and the mutated children that are caused by doing that.


BISER: That is the legacy of isolating ingredients!


SCHULZE: That's right. It's an unsafe thing to do. Nature has put these things in a form that is usable for us.


So what we do is, we blast ourselves for 20 years with beer and pepperoni and cigarettes and chocolate and ice cream, and then we want to turn it all around in a week. Part of natural healing is, you have to be patient and you will get the results.


Those who use the isolated drugs will get the results, but they will get another disease. Guaranteed. They will fix the liver and wreck the bowel. Or, they will cause new diseases that will be called “side effects.”


BISER: Let's go into those words “side effects” for a moment, and see why they are mild words for medical catastrophe. Tell our readers what you were telling me about the causes of the polio epidemic.


SCHULZE: Doctors are starting to think that the massive polio epidemic of the 1940's and 50's was caused by the high number of tonsillectomies done in the 1920's, 30's and 40's.


Now they've discovered that the only area of the body that can synthesize the antibody to poliomyelitis is the tonsils. If you don't have tonsils, you can't fight off polio.


BISERA lack of tonsils allows polio to grow?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. This is the classic medical domino effect.


First, they took out the tonsils, a critical part of our immune system.


Then they gave us the polio vaccine, which is now being recalled. The polio vaccine was developed in the late 40's from infected pig kidney pus. They cleaned it and sterilized it.


In the 1970's, they looked back at the polio vaccine with new microscopes and found 149 live viruses in it. One of the viruses they found was examined by Harvard. They named it the SV-40 virus, and they said it's inside every cancer tumor they find. The cancer rate has gone up ten times since the polio inoculation.


Here we have cancer going back to the polio vaccine — and none of it would have ever started if they had left the tonsils in the throat. This is a classic medical nightmare that's created when we snip out a part of the body This is just the tip of the iceberg of the medical nightmares that have been created. I find that most medical books nowadays back up natural healing. I know, because I go into their libraries and read them.


Most people stay ill because they use partial programs.


SCHULZE: I get people in my office, and I'll say to them, “I think you need to drink a couple of glasses of fresh carrot juice every day” and they say, “I did that.” and I say, “Well, what about hot and cold showers?” and they go, “I've done that before.” You go through the whole list of herbs, and they say, “I've done it before” But they have never done it all at once. They haven't put this entire program together.


In spite of the great results, it still amazes me how much people try to cut corners when they are on these programs.


BISER: Even people who believe in it!


SCHULZE: Absolutely. They are just not doing it often enough. They are not doing enough of it, and they are not doing a wide enough spectrum of the program.


Today's society has been brainwashed into believing that only the medical community can cure.


SCHULZE: We have been brainwashed by medicine. I don't want to get too political with this, but medicine in our country has been on a crusade over the last hundred years to wipe out every other form of medicine.


One of the things they did that was unique was they lobbied to make words legal only for them to use.


Today, in the United States, only a medical doctor can diagnose a disease, prescribe something, and cure you. Nobody else can say “diagnose”, “prescribe” and “cure”. That means that nobody can cure you but a medical doctor.


That is why you see TV advertisements for Monistat 7, the anti-fungal medication to destroy yeast in a woman's vagina. They say, “My doctor said this is the cure,” and they use that word all the time on those commercials. “This is the cure. My doctor said it's the cure.”


They know we can't say that. I can't say, “Chaparral is the cure for a tumor.” I can't say that garlic is the cure for cholesterol or high blood pressure. They have made that law. So that makes me look stupid, impotent, and it makes the herbs look weak and wimpy


I can't, as an herbalist, say that an herb will cure, even though a lot of the prescription drugs are made from those herbs.


This was a tactic by the organized medical industry to wipe out the opposition, by making them look silly and impotent.


Herbalism's march into hell.


BISER: So these people now control the high grounds?


SCHULZE: Well, they have the words. Absolutely, they control the high grounds.


They can walk out and say, “Yes, if you take this drug, you will cure yourself.” But they hired the lawyers and got the government behind them.


If I say that, I go to jail. It isn't because the herbs don't work and the drugs are better, it's just because they have more money, they lobbied more and got the law passed in their favor. That is why people get this idea that herbs don't cure you.


BISER: And nobody in natural healing can say otherwise, because they go to jail.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. What they have done reminds me of going into a casino in Las Vegas. These casino owners have done everything possible to get the money out of your pocket.


There are no clocks, there are no windows, and you don't know what time of day it is. And you end up walking through the lobby and spending $5,000. They are professionals at it.


In the same way, The American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical industry are professionals not only at sales, but at their image. They are also experts at making laws to protect them and male every other form of healing illegal in our country.


BISER: The natural healers buy into that by sticking to trivial conditions, by using junk formulas and by being politicians!


SCHULZE: And by saying, “We won't use chaparral for a while, because the AMA says that it may be dangerous, and the Food and Drug Administration is suggesting we don't.”


They don't realize the Food and Drug Administration and the pharmaceutical industry and the doctors are laughing their asses off at the herbalists — knowing that they have won.


BISER: Knowing they have made one of the best antioxidants of all times illegal!


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Pharmaceutical drugs are killing hundreds of thousands of people every year in our country. In spite of that, they claim that two people were hurt with chaparral, so they have taken it off the market. And those claims aren't even substantiated. And the herbalists are saying. “Okay,” because they are hoping that will get them recognized.


BISER: What they don't understand is they are using the same appeasement tactics that people used in Nazi Germany. '”Let's keep Hitler quiet. He's just a little angry today, so we'll calm him down.”


SCHULZE: These people think they are doing some good, and then they are going to get recognized. They have no understanding of whom they are playing with.


BISER: They don't understand that, in the eyes of the law, they are no better than a dope dealer or a pimp.


SCHULZE: The AMA and the pharmaceutical industry are bigger than IBM. Bigger than Eastman Kodak. It's the biggest money-making industry in the United States. Nine hundred billion dollars a year. These people are not going to roll over and play dead. They are just intimidating the herbalists, and the herbalists think they are doing some good by not using these plants. It's an absolute joke.


BISER: Then there will be more plants placed on warning lists, and the herbalists will issue more warnings, everything will be gone that they used, and then, finally, they will be accepted.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. They will get down to where they are using only peppermint and lemon balm.


BISER: Right, for nasal drip. And that will be the legal boundary for herbalists.


SCHULZE: That's right. They are trying to pass laws in various countries in Europe that say to herbalists, “If anybody comes to you who is sick, you have to refer them to a medical doctor first.” Why would they do that? For money. Absolutely, for money


BISER: The people in natural healing think, “If we could just clean up our act and get rid of people like Richard Schulze, we could make it big. He is going to screw up our whole program of sucking up.”


SCHULZE: Their focus is getting recognized. My focus is helping people get well.


BISER: So you are not interested in whether natural healing schools get accredited.


SCHULZE: All I am interested in is the 4-year-old girl in my office with a malignant tumor on her brain stem that is killing her.


All I am interested in is the man who was in the office, on the day left town, with perforated intestines that they wanted to take out. I ever lose sight of that focus, the people getting better.


Ancient religious leaders were big on natural healing.


SCHULZE: John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist church had hundreds of natural cancer treatments using herbs and natural methods. But, do you think any Methodist knows about that today? They wouldn't even know about John Wesley, if you mention him. And he was a vegetarian and a nature-cure fanatic.


BISER: The founder of the Methodist Church?


SCHULZE: Yes, John Wesley He wrote over a dozen books on water-cure, herbal-cures and natural healing for the body and getting rid of degenerative disease. But, you can run into any Methodist you want today and ask him that question, and they'd never know it.


We could run into any Mormon and tell them that Brigham Young was a vegetarian and a Thomsonian herbalist, and they wouldn't knew what you're talking about. They're sitting there drinking a Coca-Cola and eating a Big Mac.


A lot of the religious leaders of the past knew that the way to keep their flock healthy was to do cleansing programs. John Wesley wrote volumes on how to clean the body using herb and natural healing. Add I used to collect all these books: John Harvey Kellogg, Henry Lindlar, Benedict Lust.


The true power of natural healing: a man recovers from massive throat cancer after using Dr. Schulze's methods.


SCHULZE: Doctors did a needle biopsy of his throat, because he had a large mass that had developed in his throat. They diagnosed it as malignant cancer of the thyroid which had incorporated the vocal cords. And it was strangling him.


BISER: Strangling him?


SCHULZE: Yeah, he couldn't swallow; He couldn't breathe properly. It was going to kill him. It was 10 cm. in size, which is about 4 inches, or the size of a small grapefruit.


BISER: How old was he?


SCHULZE: I'm going to say about 48 years old. And when they stuck the needle in and pulled it out, they said there was a ton of debris, chunks of tissue that it had eaten up. They used that word “worst possible scenario.”


There was all sorts of tissue that had been dissolving inside of the tumor — thyroid, vocal cords, and part of the throat.


BISER: So it was eating up his whole throat?


SCHULZE: Yes. He didn't want to have it cut, because, to cut it out, they cut you almost from ear to ear. And he said, “I'm going to go to this natural place and learn how to heal this. Can I have six weeks?”


And they said, “You don't have six weeks. You don't have six days.” They said, “This is the worst malignancy we've ever seen in a throat. It's dissolving your vocal cords and your thyroid, and if you don't have it out immediately, you won't be alive in six weeks.”


He was being strangled to death. They said that the operation, unfortunately, would probably leave him with no vocal cords, so he wouldn't be able to talk anyway. And they would just put one of those boxes he'd blow through in his throat. He came to the course, and when he showed up, we immediately put him on the whole incurables program. We had poultices on his throat. We did the whole thing. By the end of two weeks, it had shrunk to 5 cm, which was half its original size.


Then he went home and continued on the program. He said that he could feel it sometimes, and not feel it other times. It kept going down. At the end of six months, there was nothing in his throat. Then he was checked and he had zero cancer.


He just came over for the continuing education program that we run. He looks great and is happy as can be. In fact, he stood up the first minute of class and gave his testimony. His speech is fine. He sounds perfectly normal, and his thyroid is absolutely perfect.


These are the kinds of cures your readers can expect by following the procedures in this SAVE-YOUR-LIFE Collection.


People say these cures are not possible with natural healing. But, that's because they've never seen it, and have never clone it themselves.


Natural healing is more powerful than medicine. But, to see that power, you have to go all-out and not be afraid. That's what I did, and I cured thousands who were dying.


Your readers can now duplicate my success in their own homes.


We have given them the tools.

Appendix B: Final Words from Sam Biser


There are three major things I need to tell you.


1. Water and salt can be more powerful than any herb. Without salt, your body will dehydrate no matter how much water you drink. The use of salt and water in healing is so basic that it comes before any herbal therapy.


It would take a volume the size of this manual to explain it to you. I urgently recommend that you get a copy of the new, revised edition of the book, “Your Bodies Many Cries for Water”, by Dr. Batmanghelidj, which may be ordered from Global Health Solutions, PO Box 3189, Falls Church, VA 22043. The cost is $14.95 plus $3-00 shipping and handling.


Water and salt therapy is essential whether you have colitis or cancer.


2. Differences in metabolism can completely change the herbs you need. For example, some people have a hot metabolism and cannot tolerate cayenne pepper or garlic because it will make them hotter. Other people will have completely opposite reactions to herbs than what you expect. An example: one person was given a strong herbal sedative that would have put anyone else to sleep. In this person, the herbal sedative acted like a strong stimulant that made the person more awake than he had been all day long. Therefore, any recommendation in this manual is not for all types of metabolisms.


The 'Superfood' recipe, given earlier in this manual, is a good example. The 'Superfood' recipe is high in potassium and iron. Some people will feel marvellous from taking it, others will get ill from the same recipe. I think that some people need a 'Superfood' recipe high in natural calcium and sodium, not potassium and iron. Again, this is a subject an entire volume could be written on. More later, but for now, listen to your intuition more than anything you read and more than anyone you ever talk to.


3. I do not believe that all people are genetically destined to be vegetarians. My friend Richard Shulze says that a person should be 100% vegetarian until they are 100% well. I do not believe this, because with my own eyes, I have seen differently. I believe there is a small percentage of people who will not get well, or who can die, unless they eat some animal products. I believe that some people need foods like chicken broth, lamb broth, beef broth, egg whites and whole eggs, and yogurt to make it possible for them to recover. You cannot change your genes by willpower, or because someone told you to eat according to their standards.


People are not better or 'higher' because they are vegetarian. Be true to your own metabolism.


Appendix C: Last Minute Additions


Lost Garlic Cloves


BISER: We have had a few readers write, and call, who took your advice and inserted fresh garlic cloves into their vaginas, and lost them.


SCHULZE: They used too small of a clove. The clove size must be large, and what I mean by large is — BIG — the size of your thumb; and no less than 1/2 the size of your thumb. Small cloves can get lost and be hard to remove. Large cloves just settle and can be pulled out easily. If you put in a small one, and it does get lost, douche until it comes out. Some people want to tie a piece of string or thread to it, but this is not necessary. I've had thousands of women do this successfully Just use very large cloves!


BISER: Is this really effective?


SCHULZE: It is the best there is. The chemical properties of garlic are powerfully, broad spectrum, anti-bacterial. They will destroy both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Garlic is also an extremely potent anti-fungal agent and, also, a powerful anti-viral agent. There is no other herb that even comes close to garlic's cleansing and healing abilities in the vagina.


I had a woman of 45 come to see me with endometrial cancer. She was recently diagnosed, and entertaining the thought of surgery. As usual, the doctors said to hurry up and cut. She decided to try natural methods first. I put her on daily vaginal garlic implants, with garlic douches at night. Then, after the douche, inserting another garlic clove at night followed by another douche in the morning. In two weeks, she had no sign of cancer.


BISER: What do you mean garlic douches?



28 ounces of distilled water

2 ounces of raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar

The juice of 1 organic Lemon or Lime

1 clove of Garlic

(Blend all ingredients in a blender, strain, and use as a douche)


Optional — 30 to 40 drops of Tea Tree (Ml.


BISER: Did the cancer expel?


SCHULZE: Nothing was noticed. It just disappeared. When she went back and asked for a check-up, the doctors said, “Why? You should be in a hospital.” She said, “Please check”, and they couldn't believe their eyes. Sure enough, the cancer had disappeared.


I have seen thousands of miracles with this plant. I've seen other women who the cancer peeled right off of and discharged. Garlic kills and removes cancers, inside and outside of the body, period!


Colitis and Related Conditions by Sam Biser


Intestinal inflammation can kill you. The most important thing to do in a situation like this is to correct dehydration and the salt deficiency that goes with it. This is primary and comes before any herbal therapy.


Drinking water is not enough. Fear of salt, and the failure use it, will cause water to leave your body before it can be used. Also night sweats can occur as the body excretes water to keep it in balance with your low salt levels.


After consultation with F. Batmanghelidj, MD., a medical expert on dehydration, I recommend the following for such cases.


1. Drink a glass of water every hour on the hour while you are awake. With every glass of water, dip your fingertip in some salt and put the salt under your tongue. When you wake up at night have additional glasses of water and salt. You will be consuming a little more than a half teaspoon of salt per day. If possible, Celtic salt is recommended.  Available from: “The Grain and Salt Society”, PO. Box DD, Magalia, 95954 — phone 916 873-1294. The salt you are taking will neutralize the acid wastes that your body is full of. Additionally, salt is an antihistamine that will reduce inflammation. Beware, in cases of severe demineralization such as colitis, distilled water may be harmful as it can remove minerals from the body.


2. Do not eat any fruit or fruit juices during the critical phase of your illness. Fruit will ferment in your intestines promote more growth of fungus. If your body tolerates it, you may have plain yogurt with live bacteria. Also recommended, is 2 or more glasses a day of carrot and celery juice made in your juicer.


3. Have someone prepare chicken broth for you, made with fresh whole chicken, salt, onions, carrots, and celery. Add spices or seasonings. Drink several cups a day.


4.  You can have white bread toasted, but no whole wheat bread.


5. A good food to eat is Basmati rice, which can be added to your chicken broth or eaten separately for additional calories.


6.  Every two hours, while you lay in bed, you need to do isometric exercises for five minutes. Contract your muscles, squeeze them, and release them. This will send a message to your body not to cannibalize your muscles. It will also send a message that you are “serious” about rebuilding yourself.


7.  After several days of this routine, or when your colon is showing dramatic improvement, you may add any light, white fish for lunch or dinner. You may also have steamed vegetables like spinach or squash.


8.  Go to bed at 9 or 9:30 p.m. every evening. Do not allow yourself to become over-exhausted by staying up late.


9. Do not make telephone calls, or take telephone calls.


10. If you watch movies, do not watch anything that is overly exciting or emotional.


11.  Do not attempt to work during the critical phase of your illness, or you could end up in the hospital with a colostomy


12.  Once you have moved past the worst phase, you may have 2 to 3 poached egg whites, once or twice a day with salt. This will supply albumin, an essential protein for your blood. When your body has begun to have formed movements, with no blood, you may have a whole, poached egg with toast.


13.  Once you begin working, do not work more than one hour twice a day. The greatest danger in a colitis case is the threat of relapse due to over-stress and over-exertion. A cure that would take 4 weeks with proper food therapy could take 12 weeks if you allow yourself to go into a relapse. Do not resume the same lifestyle that caused you to become ill in the first place.


Remember, as I said in the beginning, intestinal inflammation and ulceration can kill. It is not necessarily a minor condition. Consult your medical doctor before you engage in any self-help treatment. For more information on water and salt therapy, please refer to the book, “Your Body's Many Cries for Water”, which is mentioned on page 427 of your User Manual. This book also comes in a 5-pack for $50, including postage, and a 10-pack for $100, including postage.


Herbal information on colitis: In addition to information covered on the videotapes, please be aware that Richard Schulze uses large doses of high quality aloe juice, many cups a day, plus licorice root, a half bottle of capsules or more per day, mixed together in a blender drink with slippery elm powder. However, in my opinion, by using a program of water and salt, and food as medicine, these herbs may not be needed. As always, use your own intuition. It is there to guide you. No manual can substitute for that inner voice.


Cold Sheet Treatment


The last step of the cold sheet treatment is to apply a garlic paste to the bottoms of the feet. Dr. Christopher used to cover the feet with olive oil and then apply a thick paste of Vaseline petroleum jelly and grated garlic. I feel that the Vaseline is toxic, a very poor substance to use, and allows very little garlic, if any, to be absorbed by the body.


In my version of the NEW Incurables program, I suggest a minimum consumption of 3 cloves of garlic a day, if not 6. Because of this, and the problems with toxic petroleum products which I noted above, I suggest you completely skip this step of the cold sheet treatment. I have had wonderful, even miraculous, results, while omitting this step.


If someone really desires to use the garlic paste, here is what I suggest. First, apply copious amounts of olive oil to the entire foot, rub it in well, then apply more. Then make a paste of 1 cup of slippery elm bark and 10 fresh garlic cloves. Blend this mixture in a blender, adding a little 50% raw organic apple cider vinegar and 50% distilled water to make a thick paste. Apply a very thin layer of this paste to the bottoms of the feet, cover with gauze, and remove in two hours. Rinse feet and check for any burning. If okay, you can apply this for additional 2 hour periods.


Advice on using nutritional yeast


In the Incurables chapter, we mentioned an outstanding, quality nutritional yeast. Please refer to page 30 in your manual. In that chapter we included yeast as part of a superfood recipe.


You should also know that this yeast can be used separately in tomato juice or other juices. For some people, such as myself this does more good separately than when it is combined with other ingredients-which do not suit me as well.


Appendix D: Herbal Quality


This information horrifies the herbal industry, but it can save your life.


Herbal Quality


I wish I didn't have to write this chapter.


I'm so mad about what's going on, I can hardly calm down. Can you blame me?


As you'll learn in a moment, the only thing high-potency about today's herbal products is the marketing and the graphics on the labels.


I have bad news and great news, and I'm going to give you the bad news first.


The bad news: Herbs and herbal products that should save lives are now- so inferior and lacking in potency that people are dying instead of getting cured.


The great news: By the end of this chapter, you will learn how to make kitchen herbal tinctures that will blow out of the water the garbage you're now using.


Without wasting any time, let's jump into the fire.


“Many of the herbs in your healthfood stores come from third-world countries, where they use pesticides that are outlawed in the U.S.”


BISER: The perception today is that the potencies are stronger than ever because we've gotten rid of all the old-fashioned methods. Things are standardized with double, triple extracting...


SCHULZE: Yeah (laugh). That's all I can do is laugh.


There's a lot of reasons why herbs and herbal products on the market right now are pathetic, as far as their ability to work. I would say that they range from the best being “poor quality”, all the way down to "absolutely 100% impotent and won't do anything”.


BISER: How can that be?


SCHULZE: 99% of the herbs the American companies are using and selling do not come from within the U.S. They're imported from eastern European countries like Czechoslovakia, Poland, Rumania. They're also imported from Egypt, India, China, and Mexico and many third-world countries.


“I've been overseas and seen toxic waste dumps burning plastic, right next to the fields growing the herbs you use.”


BISER: But aren't these far-out areas more ecologically pure?


SCHULZE: Give me a break. Haven't you been reading the newspapers? We're a paradise compared to them.


I've travelled to these countries for years. And I've never seen an organic farm. Never. These countries use loads of insecticides and pesticides, if they can afford them. I have seen aerial spraying done in many of these countries, and the biggest horror, of course, is that these countries mainly use organo-phosphates.


The organo-phosphates, we have to remember, all were developed from after World War II from Adolph Hitler's nerve gas. It was discovered that nerve gas destroyed insects in smaller dosages.


They still use DDT, even though it's outlawed in the US. It's used widespread throughout, especially Asia. Mexico uses it.


So anybody who has any type of neurological disorder, especially whether it be muscular dystrophy, multiple-sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, or any other neurological or neuromuscular disorder should absolutely stay away from anything that might have nerve gas sprayed on it. It'll deteriorate them further.


“Sometimes the most toxic thing in a person's diet is the herbal products they are using to detoxify.”


BISER: I'm sure the big companies would never allow those kinds of things into the country. They have a good reputation and that would never happen.


SCHULZE: The big companies so specialize in selling herbs of this type: There's no restriction and it's cheap. They can buy these herbs for pennies a pound from India, from Mexico, from China, from Egypt.


These same herbs would cost twenty-times more if they bought them organically grown or wild-crafted in the U.S., so these herbs are loaded, everybody knows that, with pesticides and insecticides. And it even goes further.


You know, in our country, the National Cancer Institute has said that farmers that use and are around pesticides have a 7-8 times higher-rate of cancer than the public. There's another reason these herbs are toxic.


The pollution in these countries is unbelievable. I have been to areas where they're growing herbs for commerce in third-world countries. They had dumps next door where they were burning plastic.


This was not only going into the air, but the rain-water was carrying it into these fields. I've seen many of them next to large roadways. I've been in Spain where they do aerial spraying that looks like a 24-hour-a-day bombing attack from the airplanes. I've seen them doing it on plants that they were using to make essential oils in herbal products.


In Eastern Europe, where I've been travelling recently, pollution is a disaster area. And, if you look through general herb catalogues and you ask them where they're getting these herbs, about 10% of them come from eastern Europe. Many companies are selling Juniper berried from eastern Europe.


BISER: These are American companies?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. American companies. All anybody has to do is pick up a newspaper or magazine today to understand what has happened in the last 40-50 years since World War II in eastern Europe.


Basically, with the Soviet rule, there were no pollution standards. no environmental control, and they dumped toxic wastes directly into the rivers. In fact, it's estimated that it's going to take hundreds of years to clean up eastern Europe.


Eastern Europe is in a crisis situation right now. There are so many rivers that are polluted with medical wastes and radioactive materials. There's still a radiation overload left over from Chernobyl, which was years ago in eastern Europe. It's one of the most highly-polluted areas in the world right now.


BISER: You mean people are actually ingesting herbs from there?

SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. In fact, you can look in many modern herb catalogues today. If they dare state where the herbs are from, they'll mention these countries: Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Rumania. I see it all the time. Sometimes, it just says “E. Europe”, meaning eastern Europe.


It's so sad, because most of us want herbs to de-toxify our body, to clean our body out of unwanted chemicals, and to heal us from degenerative diseases caused by toxins. Instead, we're getting more toxins.


For example, in China, India and most of Asia, they use human feces to fertilize the fields they grow herbs in. Many herbs that are imported into the U.S. have been found to be contaminated with E. coli bacteria.


In fact, recently a major manufacturer of herbs discovered that one of their formulas was contaminated with E. coli bacteria.


BISER: But, surely people check for all that?


SCHULZE: Many smaller companies don't have the facilities to check for that, so some state governments and soon the Federal government is going to make the larger companies who import this have to put antibiotics on the herb, or some type of antibacterial sprays. That's because many, many herbs coming from India and China are contaminated.


Another example, gotu kola is a plant that grows in damp ditches. In India, damp ditches are the open sewers in many areas, and almost every gotu kola that's come into this country has been found to be contaminated with E.coli bacteria, because that's the bacteria from feces.


BISER: Readers don't realize that there's just very few sources for a lot of these herbs?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. Most of the herbs that come into the U.S. come from about three companies, some-times only two. I would say 80% of them come from just two companies.


Every healthfood store that I go into has various brands of herbs that are sold bulk, but all of them are coming from different companies and all those different companies….and I know this for a fact….are buying them from the same importers. It's all the same stuff.


BISER: People are getting infatuated with Chinese herbs, thinking they are a cut above the rest.


SCHULZE: China has some of the dirtiest herb business that I've seen anywhere in the world. On top of it, many of the Chinese herbs are sulfured. Of course, we don't want sulfured apricots and peaches, bur the Chinese sulfur a lot of their herbs.


When they're brought in, they're also subject to our fumigation and irradiation laws also. They would have the same problems as other foreign herbs.


“I have personally witnessed bales of herbs being sprayed, with what looked like a fire hose of insecticides before they came off the ship.”


BISER: Hasn't anyone gone to these companies and said, “Why are you doing this?”


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. But you waste your time, because there’s only one reason why. Because the public doesn't want to spend the money to buy the higher quality herbs. At least, this is what they think.


But we're in a health crisis right now in the country. Why not spend a little bit more and get a product that's going to be non-toxic?


And then….now imagine this...if the herb isn't adulterated, if it's even identified to be correct, if it didn't have human fecal matter put on it, if it wasn't sprayed with pesticides and insecticides, and if the area it grew in wasn't polluted, which is going to be almost impossible, American import laws dictate that all herbs that come into the U.S. are subject to fumigation and irradiation.


So, even if you had a miracle happen, and an herb actually reached you that was high quality and non-toxic, the next thing that's going to happen is the Department of Agriculture, or another federal or state or local agency is probably going to spray that plant or irradiate it.


As you know, anybody who travels in an airplane today knows that when you go out of the U.S., especially to Europe or Asia, they come through and spray cans-full of insecticide. It just happened to me when I flew just down to the Caribbean.


They came through the plane before and after. The last plane trip I was on, the man who came through with insecticide had a gas mask on and I didn't! So what do you think happens to the herbs!!!


Anything that comes from the Far East, India, China and goes through the big docks in California gets it even worse. These herbs are not only subject to federal laws requiring fumigation and irradiation — but to California laws — which are even stricter.


It would be a miracle for you to end up with any herbs that come from outside the U.S. and be of good quality. Anything! Now — we haven't even begun to talk about what the manufacturers do with the herbs. We're just talking about the herbs they bring in.


BISER: It's unbelievable what has happened to herbalism.


SCHULZE: Oh, herbalists in the past used to gather their own herbs. They used to gather them from their area. Nowadays, herbs are procured from toxic environments, grown with toxic waste, and more toxins put on them before they come into the country.


For instance, all fennel seed on the market comes from India. All psyllium seed on the market pretty much comes from India. If your readers got the catalogues from the herbal wholesalers, it says where every herb is from. You'll be shocked. I mean...they might as well say, “Comes from hell.”


BISER: You were telling me about a company in the Los Angeles area you recently visited. They said they don't worry about checking for bacterial contamination, because everything entering the plant is “pre-sprayed”.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. In fact, I visited a company that's a manufacturing company of many herbal products and I noticed that they no longer had a quarantine area, which is required by law with the big companies. They also didn't have any lab facilities to run bacterial tests.


I said, “Well, how can you operate without a lab?” They said, “Well, we don't have to have a lab to test bacteria anymore because the company that we buy our material from is pretreating the herbs. You can imagine what that means....'pretreating the herbs for bacteria'.


Here we all are, not wanting to use antibiotics, and we buy herbal products that not only may they be toxic, but we're also getting antibiotic sprayed. It's outrageous. But it gets even worse than this.


BISER: What do you mean?


SCHULZE: The first step in hoping that an herb product will work is that you're getting the right herbs.


But you can't even count on this. For instance, I've read numerous reports that many ginseng products that are sold in America contain no ginseng at all.


“Most of the cayenne pepper sold is so weak that people in other countries would consider it useless paprika.”


BISER: Well, what do they contain?


SCHULZE: Brown sugar, wheat flour. I'm talking mostly about these ginseng drinks, these ginseng instant packets.


You know, even sometimes what looks like effective ginseng preparations absolutely have very little or even again no ginseng at all. This was done by many people who have tested them in the laboratory, and ginseng is a very adulterated market.


Now, this is done because people want to make more money. But there are other instances where people just don't know how to identify the plants.


It's estimated that the majority of skullcap that's on the market, which is so important when we want to have people regenerate their nervous system, is not skullcap at all, but another similar plant called germander.


So, if you're taking skullcap, hoping it's going to repair your nerves — you're not even getting skullcap, you're getting germander, and the germander is sprayed with DDT. You'd be better off not using herbs. Don't you understand? You'd be better off not even taking the herbs.


This mistake with germander occurs because people picking the plant mistake it for skullcap. These screw-ups can get so bad that I had one of the largest suppliers in the world send me myrrh-gum and swear it was aloe-gum. Of course, these are two very different products.


BISER: But how can they do that?


SCHULZE: In many places, there's not anyone at the facility to check these things.


Or, the person who's supposed to check them has many people working for them that really don't know. Aloe-gum is the dried gel of a cactus that grows in a tropical area. Myrrh-gum is the resin of the tree that grows near northern Indian Himalaya. I mean, we're not even talking the same part of the world.


BISER: You mean the practicing herbalists aren't checking?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely not. I've visited many facilities that either package and sell herbs and/or produce products. The people in the rooms packaging and mixing could not identify the plants if they stumbled over them.


They are pulling one thing out of the barrel that's marked with one label and putting it in a package that's marked with another label, and if there's anything wrong in that process, they're going to mess up.


I've even been in these areas where no-one spoke English, and there was no-one around to check this process to make sure it was right,


BISER: You mean in the U.S.?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: And they didn’t know what they were doing?


SCHULZE: Of course not. If they're going to have Spanish-speaking people working, they should have instructions in Spanish and how to identify them and they didn't.


In fact, at one company, when they ran out of cayenne, they put in beet or another red ingredient. They just used something with the same color. I have seen horrors in the last decade.


Certainly things are getting better, but it's going to be years before the majority of what we see in a health food store is even of what I would call good quality.


BISER: You mean, years before we hit 'good'?


SCHULZE: That's right. That's why I said the best things are poor and down to 100% useless.


BISER: Certainly, the people who make the big national brands are not doing you what are talking about? You're talking about fly-by-night outfits, right?


SCHULZE: I have seen disgraces even with big-name national product?


For example, companies will put infinitesimal amounts of many herbs in a formula because it makes a product sell. In the industry, they call it 'fairy dust'. I have seen formulas where 99% of the formula was one-herb and only 1% of the formula was the other 30-40 herbs in the formula.


You'd get just as much out of it if you just yelled the name of the herb at the bottle. There's nothing in there.


There's a bowel product on the market that says that it contains psyllium seeds, plus cascara-sagrada and barberry? Those are two very bitter herbs. This doesn't taste bitter at all. It says it contains cayenne. But there is no heat whatsoever and you can dilute cayenne a thousand times and it's still hot.


It says it contains golden seal, again, one of the bitter herbs. You can't taste it. It says it contains garlic. Garlic can be diluted 125,000 times, one part in a 125,000, and you can still detect the odor.


I can detect no garlic odor whatsoever, and this is one of the #1 selling bowel-cleansing products in America. It says it contains garlic, cayenne, golden seal, barberry, cascara-sagrada and there's only one thing in it — and that psyllium seeds.


“Many herbal products hailed as some of the best range from poor down to totally impotent. I've personally tested them, and in most, I can't detect any herb activity at all.”


BISER: Well, what do you mean, “detect”? You are not a chemist.


SCHULZE: That doesn't matter, and you'll see why. First of all, some of these products have actually been chemically checked and found to contain none of the chemicals that would be in the herb in this formula.


But there's another problem that's easy to spot: they don't smell, taste and look like they should. Many herbs are what we call a “signature” in herbal pharmacy. In other words, cayenne is hot, peppermint takes like mint.


My great teacher, the late Dr. Christopher, used to say that herbs should have extreme amounts of these chemical products in them, but that in addition, any product that contains those, like a tincture, should even be accentuated beyond what an herb contains.


Dr. Christopher always said that one or two drops of a good tincture should equal a whole teaspoon or tablespoon of those herbs if you made an herb tea out of it. But nowadays, I can't even detect anything.


One of the characteristics of Echinacea is that it numbs and tingles in your mouth. There is a top foreign company that makes an echinacea root juice, a fresh plant extract that I have tested on numerous occasions. I can't detect any echinacea in it whatsoever. That's the top one being marketed here through an American company.


Of the top American echinacea extracts, I can detect very little echinacea in them, if any, depending on the batch. Most of the batches used to taste like none. Just recently they taste like maybe, if I use my imagination greatly and I'm really tired, I think I can taste a little echinacea in them. These are the #1 selling echinacea products on the market.


It's no wonder people say, “It didn't help my immunity”, or they still died of cancer, or whatever.


At my office, I took a dirty echinacea root, a big stalk, a few dried out leaves, and it wasn't even at the right time of the year. I threw it in a blender, turned the blender on with a cup of alcohol, let it settle for less than a minute, poured it out and we tasted it and it was better than any echinacea preparation that I could find on the market.


“Unfortunately, the best way to increase profits in the herbal business is to make weaker products with less raw materials.”


BISER: My next question is why, why, why?


SCHULZE: The reason again is back to money. Herbs are bought from some countries where they can pay very little in labor, so the herbs come in at $1 a pound, but then the company; instead of realizing that these are poor quality, instead of using more, they're using less.


Most of these companies are trying to figure out ways to continually increase their profits and there's only one way to increase profits in the herbal business, and that's to make a product that is of lesser quality. They use more extracting material, but less herbs.


BISER: What do you mean, “More extracting material and less herbs?”


SCHULZE: It's very simple. They use more alcohol, or more olive oil, and less herbs. In other words, a weaker solution. This gives them more production/greater profit.


Also, to reduce costs, they are making the tinctures too fast. Most herbal tinctures made on the market today are made in anywhere from 8 hours to 3 days. I've never seen one made in more than 3 days...or its very rare.


Dr. Christopher was taught by traditional European herbalists how to make a tincture. The minimum amount of time was fourteen days with the lunar cycle — from the new moon to the full moon.


BISER: You told me you've seen these companies, where they pour herbs through a funnel and make a five-minute tincture?


SCHULZE: I sure have. The old process was to take herbs and soak them, blended with alcohol and or other substances, from 14 days from the new moon to the full moon.


Nowadays, they just run the alcohol by the herbs. I've seen many companies that pack herbs into cones and just pour alcohol through them and...


BISER: They just drip it through, and that's the tincture?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. And they are using a tremendous amount of alcohol and a very small amount of herbs and it makes for a much lower quality tincture. It's not the way it used to be done, at least by the reputable herbalists.


“Herb companies lose customers because the people drop dead, instead of getting well.”


BISER: But today, when you ask someone, “Why are you not doing it in 14 days,” what do they tell you?


SCHULZE: Well, they don't have time. That's the real reason, but they tell me it's just as good this way. They say, “It's the new super process that works better, it's more effective.”


BISER: What about the double, triple extracting and all that? They make it sound like it's better?


SCHULZE: What's better is the advertising, not the herbal product. That's what I've constantly seen. It's the way that they word it. The marketing is getting more sophisticated, the process is getting more disgusting.


BISER: High-potency advertising?


SCHULZE: That's right and a low-potency to zero potency herbs. I talk to my patients, and they say, “Well, I bought this product and it says to take 5 to 15 drops.” I tell them to drink the whole bottle and pray and maybe they'll get a little benefit out of it.


There's even a national formulary standard that tells people the ways to make herbal products, and...I think it's absolutely horrible, but people are not even following that. According to the national formulary, you use one part herbs to three or four parts alcohol.


That's not how the traditional herbalists did it. They would put as much herb material into a bottle as they could pack, and then cover it with alcohol, or oil.


The traditional herbalists — their main focus always was how to get the patient well. They never lost sight of that, because they were dealing with their friends, their relatives and the people within their community.


The herb business, like farming, has gotten so impersonal. These herbs are going to go through fifteen hands —- warehouses, wholesalers, distributors, middlemen — before they ever get to the public.


No-one sees, no-one hears, no-one cares. You make so many millions of dollars, you lose a few customers here and there.


“Even though some garlic manufacturers claim their odorless garlic is high-potency, I say they are lying through their teeth.”


BISER: They answer to stockholders only!


SCHULZE: That's right. Now, there's another factor here that's very popular in manufacturing today Instead of educating people on the way herbs should work, they're changing the herbs to make people happy.


BISER: Tell me what you mean, “changing”?


SCHULZE: OK. A classic example would be deodorized garlic. The odor is there because that's the way nature intended it to be.


Science knows that the odor is absolutely bound with the allicin and other properties of the garlic that make it a broad spectrum antibiotic and anti-viral and anti-fungal. They make it reduce your cholesterol level, even clean plaque out of your arteries, and balance your blood pressure.


Garlic is a potent herb, but the deodorized garlics are absolute garbage. I've seen one brand of deodorized garlic tested on ten million dollars of computer equipment for an allicin content and it registered “zero”.


There's no allicin at all in some of these products, and if there is, it's very little compared to what you're getting when you use good organic fresh garlic. But it goes beyond that.


One of the most famous herbal tonics that has been used throughout ages all over the world are bitter tonics. In other words, the bitterness in the herb, before you even swallow it, stimulates your liver to clean itself, and the production of more bile increases your digestive flow.


I've seen hundreds of these bitter tonics added with honey, maple syrup, vegetable glycerin and so the customer will want to take-it. So they're sweetening the bitter herb...


BISER: Which eliminates the bitter reaction, which means the product won't affect the liver like it should.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. A bitter tonic should make you shake and shudder. Yet one of the top-selling bitter tonics has all sorts of bitter herbs in it, but doesn't even taste bitter. And so, here again, these companies are prostituting themselves to make the public happy and selling another worthless product.


Beyond that, many of these companies I go to use heat involves in their process, and heat is the biggest, biggest enemy to herbs and plants.


I see heat used constantly in the herb industry, even in the powdering of herbs. Many powdered herbs that I see are cooked. Imagine powdering oak bark. Oak is one of the hardest woods. Unfortunately, most of the oak bark I see on the commercial market is burnt.


BISER: How do you know it’s burnt?


SCHULZE: Because it’s the wrong color. OK, oak bark should be a very pale whitish color, just like the color of oak before it has any oils added, to it, right? I see oak bark on the market that is dark brown, and you can just smell it and you know it smells just like your circular saw just got stuck sawing a 2 by 12 in half, and the blade stayed there and burnt the wood. That's exactly what these herbs smell like to me — and that's burnt wood.


BISER: Have you seen or felt the heat going through these plants?


SCHULZE: Oh, it gets worse. Even if the herbal product has no heat being used, and even if the herbal product has not been burnt in powdering, the packaging equipment in many factories I’ve seen is incredibly hot.


I stood in front of one production line in a major company in the U.S. and the heat off the machine almost singed off my beard. That's how hot it was. I would estimate it was upwards of 200 degrees.


And beyond that, the light. Light can be a thousand times more destructive to herbs than heat. This is why you always shade-dry herbs, never in the sunlight, and always shade dry them.


Many companies dry them in drums that look like dryers, instead of shade-drying them. You know, herbs are supposed to be hung upside down... just the way, if you went through the tobacco part of the country. You take tobacco leaves and hang them in tobacco sheds upside down. All over southern France, where I just was, it's a tobacco area and they hang it upside-down to dry.


In the old days, all the herbs were picked and hung upside down to dry in drying sheds where air ventilates through. There was no sunlight coming in whatsoever, just fresh air.


Nobody is doing that today. They let them sit in the sun too long. They get bleached out and light absolutely can cause rancidity a thousand times faster than heat in some situations.


BISER: So you see herbs left in the sun?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely... they let them just lie there for days before they were harvested.


I travel all over the world teaching natural healing and herbology. So I visited the areas where they do this in France and Spain. I've seen it in Asia and Europe.


“To get well, we're going to have to take back herbalism from the herbal companies.”


BISER: All the old practices are gone?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. This is the modern era. Who needs them, right?


We're going to have to learn how to identify herbs for ourselves. Everybody should know how to recognize at least a dozen, if not two, medicinal plants that are growing right in their back yard.


Even if you live in New York City, I've seen herbs in Central Park. There's no excuses. You can take a train for an hour up the Hudson Valley and you can still find these herbs. Even if you're in an area you're not sure is clean, you are better off than with third-world toxic herbs.


BISER: I think we've really lost herbalism.


SCHULZE: Oh, it's unbelievable. People don't even know what to expect when they use these herbs, or what's supposed to happen, or what they're supposed to look like.


For instance, thousands of people today use blood-cleansing formulas with red clover in them. Yet I've seen plenty of red clover blossoms in herbal formulas that were dark brown.


BISER: What does that tell you?


SCHULZE: It says that the red clover was harvested past its peak, when it is reddish/violet/purple. When the red clover is dried correctly, it retains its bright color.


You see, the old herbalists knew where everything grew, they knew to watch the time of the year. You see, I myself know exactly the day before my black walnuts will drop off the tree, because I've watched them for years; I know how brown they can get before I harvest them.


BISER: So what does it mean if you get a formula that has this brown red clover?


SCHULZE: Oh, it's absolutely destroyed.


BISER: Where does the potency go?


SCHULZE: Oh, up into the air...or back into the root, because this is a key...


Whenever you want a flower, it has to be when it's at the peak of maturity. If you pick it too soon there's not enough chemical content in the flower, and if you wait, until it's dying, the chemical power of that flower either evaporates into the atmosphere or goes back into the root to prepare for the next year.


This is why you have to pick each part of the plant when it's at its peak potency. The old herbalists knew this. They grew these herbs, they harvested these herbs and they used them only in peak potency.


This is why you use roots in the Spring and in the Fall. You never used roots in the summer time, because in the summer time the plant is flowering and the chemical content is in the flower, where it's needed.


This is one of the problems with gigantic herbal businesses. They're shipping us herbs from one part of the world to a whole other part of the world.


These herbs are just like any fruit or any vegetable. They have a point when they are at peak ripeness, when there's more medicinal chemicals in that part of the year.


Sometimes, it's just a day. The herb, St. John's Wort, traditionally was picked on one day a year and that's on St. John's Day, and I only know one herbalist in the whole world who does that today.


BISER: Why are all these old-traditions being violated today?


SCHULZE: Oh, because everybody's trying to mass-produce. The old herbalists made enough product for their area.


Nowadays they're just mass-producing.


BISER: So really, we need a whole return back to the way herbalism used to be.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. We need every community, every little town have its own herbalist making its products from the herbs of that area and selling them to the people. It needs to be made on a small level.


The thing that has destroyed the quality in our country from A-Z in products has been mass-marketing, cash-crop farming, industrial-level production.


It's taken quality and destroyed it. For instance, do you know than a lot of herb Pau D'Arco on the market is harvested with chain saws and chippers, which is what you see tree surgeons use.


This is supposed to be just the paper thin inner bark of the plant and they're putting the whole tree through — and do you know where they're getting it from?


BISER: Where?


SCHULZE: The deforestation of the rain forest. So we're not only buying a whole tree that's burnt and run through a chipper but we're supporting the deforestation of the rain forest.


And yet, by using the entire tree trunk, we're only getting a pittance of that is supposed to be Pau D'Arco. The rest is wood pulp. When Dr. Christopher prescribed herbs, he would say slippery elm inner bark. He was very specific. He knew the part of the plant.


You can imagine that when you put a whole tree through a chipper, you're going to have a lot more product to sell.


“I have seen big-name healthfood store herbal products that were made from organically-grown herbs, and still useless junk, because they won't make the tinctures right.”


BISER: What's the difference in wholesale prices between commercial-grade herbs and organically-grown herbs?


SCHULZE: The junk-grade juniper berries go on the wholesale marker to an herbal manufacturer anywhere from 75 cents to $1.25 a pound.


These are dried-out juniper berries; they're shrivelled up and hard. You do not smell anything from them and they can range in color from blue-brown all the way to brown.


The fresh juniper berries that I picked in the south of France, when you squeezed them a little oil would come out of them. They smelled like a Christmas tree, they were so strong in that piney smell. They were bright blue to purple and they were about the entire size of, say, my little finger nail, and the color of a blueberry. What a difference!


BISER: And the good junipers, they can be obtained for how much a pound?


SCHULZE: They can range on the market for between $16 and $25 a pound.


BISER: So that's why nobody uses them?


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: What did Dr. Christopher use when he was curing people?


SCHULZE: He carried fresh juniper berries with him in his bag. People read about Dr. Christopher, and they try some juniper preparation and then they say, “Herbalism doesn't work.”


They think to themselves, “He was lying”... or, “He didn't know what he was talking about”...or, “He used something else we don't know about.” Dr. Christopher used exactly what he said he used. It was simple. He just used herbs that were great quality, and many of them, he picked himself.


BISER: Give me an example of another herb and the difference in prices.


SCHULZE: Well, fennel seeds. We talked about them. They range on a wholesale level to the manufacturers anywhere from 75 cents to $1.50 a pound.


The organic or wild-crafted, they can range from $15 to $20 a pound for good quality.


I just paid $60 for a pound of fennel seed for a man to go out and harvest them for me, but he harvested them for me at the right time of the year. They were harvested at the exact 2 or 3 days they were at their ripest.


BISER: Now, you've had results with juniper berries and kidney problems in a day or two...yet, people have taken kidney formulas for years and never got better.


SCHULZE: And I see people take some of these dried encapsulated useless herbal products forever and still have to use antibiotics, they can't shake their kidney infection. And yet given fresh herbs, be cured in days.


BISER: People say natural products aren't that strong.


SCHULZE: And they aren't. Unfortunately, they are absolutely correct. What they're buying is junk.


BISER: What happens when you mention all this to fellow-herbalists?


SCHULZE: No one can argue with me. They think that I'm being extreme, and that I'm going to hurt the herbal business.


BISER: Well, you probably will.


SCHULZE: See, I don't care. I never, ever have lost my focus. I only care about that person who's sitting in my office and needs to get well. My reputation of miracle healing was built on concern for my patients, nor concern for the herbal industry.


BISER: Why are they concerned about hurting the industry?


SCHULZE: They're all in it. Most of these people are involved in the writing about herbs or in the production of herbal formulas. Very few of them have ever been in the front lines of running a clinic.


And now, these same people are telling me not to use certain herbs because the FDA has asked us not to. This is an outrage. Again, their focus is on smiling with the FDA and to get recognized. Their heart is not with the patient who is sitting there sick and dying in the office that needs these herbs.


They've absolutely lost sight of what they were doing in the first place, which was to help people get well.


I never hear anyone in this country talk about the patient. I never hear that being brought up. You know why? They don't have any.


Practical advice on making tinctures.


BISER: What can our readers do to get great herbal products to cure themselves with?


SCHULZE: The first thing is that they've got to get great herbs. I'll give your readers four sources at the end of this interview. These are all wholesalers. They're going to sell you herbs by the pound. So you have to buy a pound. But a pound of some herbs, especially if you're ill and you need them, isn't that much. You can always split them with a friend too.


Get your herbs and place them in a wide-mouth glass jar. Either make separate tinctures, or assemble a formula and place it in the jar. You can place the herbs in a blender with alcohol first, and pulverize them into a mash. Now, cover the herbs with 80 to 100 proof vodka, just enough so that they are submerged. Cover and shake several times a day. Try to start the tincture on the new moon, and wait at least 14 days till the full moon to squeeze it out.


I myself often leave the herbs in for two to three months. Some of my students actually make tinctures, then strain out the herbs, put fresh herbs in the tinctures, and make a double-strength batch.


Press out the soaked herbs through cheescloth into a bowl. You can use dark glass jars to store your tinctures in.


Dr. Christopher used clear glass and put paint on the outside. You can wrap paper around it, or you can just use clear glass and keep it in a room where you're not going to have the light going through. Light does deteriorate these things.


Don't be afraid to fresh grind your herbs. You can buy just a little coffee grinder and you can grind your own juniper berries. You can grind everything in just a little $15 coffee grinder except for the very hard roots.


Your readers need to pick herbs in their own area, or get organically-grown or wild-crafted herbs. I do not recommend the



Appendix E: How to make Herbal Preparations


by Dr. Richard Schulze


I wrote the following information on how to make herbal preparations over 20 years ago and used it for teaching students. This is the first time it has ever been available to the public. I have updated it and simplified it for the lay person.


If I could give you one word of advice it would be not to be afraid to make some herbal preparations. Whether you make every herbal preparation you need, or a few, or just play with it as a hobby it doesn't matter. You will probably find that even your mistakes are better than what is commercially available. And if. God forbid, the day ever arises that you can't get what you need, this information could save your life.


The vast majority of what you need to know is covered on the video tapes; this is just to clarify a few points and give you some specific measurements and formulae.


Herbal Snuffs for Nasal Draining


Herbal Snuffs for nasal congestion have been used for hundreds of years. They are, basically, herbs in a finely powdered state which sometimes have an essential oil added. Most of the snuffs I made and used in the clinic over the years were for decongesting and draining of the sinus cavity.


One of my favorites was goldenseal root powder and bayberry bark powder, with a tiny bit of cayenne pepper and garlic added. This snuff disinfects and decongests the sinus cavities.


Take a small jar and put into it seven tablespoons of finely powdered goldenseal root and 7 tablespoons of finely powdered bayberry bark. The cayenne and garlic add intensity to the formula and the amounts should be judged by your ability to tolerate it. The amounts I added in the clinic were one tablespoon of 150,000 H.U. cayenne powder and one tablespoon of garlic powder. Although this amount may seem a bit extreme, for some it works!


Shake the jar and mix the powder well.




When we speak of infusions we mean making a common tea. Take an amount of herb, pour boiling water over it, and let it steep. An infusion can be made with cold water, as a sun tea, or by using boiling water.


A basic formula for making an infusion is to use one teaspoonful of dried herb or two teaspoons of fresh herb to the cup of water. Pour the boiling water into a cup with the herbs (a tea ball may be used), cover, and let steep for 15-30 minutes. When making a cold infusion or sun tea, let the herbs remain in the water 1 to 4 hours before straining.


We use infusions with herb parts out of which the medicinal qualities are easy to extract, such as leaves and flowers (example: peppermint leaves or chamomile flowers). If we were to simmer or boil these sensitive parts of herbs, we would have their valuable healing chemicals in the air of our kitchen but not in our cup of tea.


When we want to make a tea out of the harder parts of plants, such as the twigs, branches, barks and roots, then we make a decoction.




A decoction is also an herbal tea, but it is designed for the harder parts of herbs such as the barks, roots, twigs, berries, fruit, nuts, etc. With these parts of herbs, an infusion may not extract all the medicinal properties; they are locked into the harder parts of the plants. Therefore, we need to apply more heat for a longer period of time.


A basic decoction is made by adding 1/2 to 1 ounce (1 to 4 tablespoons) of dried herb to 1 1/2 pints of cold water (the extra 1/2 pint covers the evaporation in boiling). It is best to let the herbs soak and re-hydrate in the water up to 12 hours, if you have the time, and then slowly bring it up to a boil. Let it simmer between 10 and 30 minutes.


For infusions, decoctions, and any other herbal preparations you make that require water, it is best to use the emptiest water. Your first choice would be distilled water; a very close second would be reverse osmosis, and then filtered. Mineral and spring waters are very saturated (full) with minerals and, therefore, dissolve less plant chemicals than the empty waters.


Fomentations (compresses)


A fomentation is basically an herbal infusion or decoction applied externally using a piece of cloth, gauze, or towel, always using natural fibers such as cotton or wool.


Fomentations can be made with any liquid at any temperature but generally we use a hot herbal tea made with water. Other possibilities are to make the fomentation with various oils (castor oil is one of my favorites), apple cider vinegar, diluted essential oil, or fresh fruit or vegetable juices; use your imagination.


To make an herbal tea fomentation, you first make an infusion or decoction as previously described. Then, dip a piece of cloth in the solution; the size of the cloth should be in proportion to the area of the body you want to cover. Wring out the excess liquid and apply this cloth to the affected area of the body. You may wish to keep the tea hot in order to keep dipping the cloth back in it and reapplying it when the cloth gets cool; this can be done every few minutes. Also, a heavy towel placed over the fomentation will help it retain its heat.


A nice way to increase circulation to an area is to place an ice cold wet cloth or ice pack on the area for 2 to 8 minutes followed with an application of the hot fomentation for 5 to 10 minutes.


You may decide at some point to leave the fomentation on for a longer period of time (like overnight). In this case, you may want to cover it with other towels or even plastic to keep the area warm and wet. Even a hot water bottle can be applied over the fomentation to keep it warm. Over the years my patients have come up with thousands of ways to keep poultices on all night from ski caps on the head to elastic ace bandages. Use your imagination.


Fomentations are wonderful hydrotherapy and with using different water temperatures you have a wonderful aid for increasing blood flow and circulation. Fomentations can be used for stiff or torn muscles, burns, cuts, bruises, scrapes, broken and cracked bones, internal organs, glandular areas, general pain, etc.


Castor oil fomentations are great eliminative routines. Oil-soaked cloth, usually hot, can be placed over the liver, kidneys, intestines, appendix, lungs, etc., and will assist in elimination.


Using hot water or liquids in a fomentation relaxes tight muscles, draws blood to the surface of the skin, increases circulation in that area, and opens up congestion. Heat is also drawing and aids in pulling impurities from the body. One of my favorites to use is cayenne and ginger with other herbs to really increase the blood flow to an area.


A cold fomentation constricts the blood flow and circulation to the area and drives the blood deep below the surface. It can soothe discomforts caused by too much heat (burns, sunburns, inflammation, etc.) and also increase circulation to reduce unwanted swelling and pain.




A poultice differs from a fomentation in that, instead of applying the herbal tea, oil, or juice to the body, we apply the actual herb itself. This could be in a very simple way, by just “bruising'” an herb leaf and applying it to the skin. The American Indians and primitive cultures all over the world simply chew herbs up into a wet pulp and apply this to various parts of the body.


The most common way is to mix dried herbs together, in a finely cut or powdered state, add water, apple cider vinegar, or some other liquid to it to form a paste; then applying this to the skin. I have found that adding 1/4 to 1/3 of a mucilaginous herb powder, such as slippery elm inner bark powder, makes a much nicer consistency and will also adhere better.


Poultices are great for just about any problem but are mostly used for wounds. When using a poultice on a “hole” in the body or a deep wound, not only would you want to have cleaned and disinfected the area before applying the poultice, but also have added some anti-infection herbs to the poultice such as goldenseal, or, my favorite, garlic (it does burn a bit) or tea tree oil.


Another general rule of thumb on a wound is that once the poultice is dried, it may look like some of it is gone or has been absorbed into the body; don't clean the remaining poultice off unless you absolutely need to recheck the wound. Just add a new poultice over the old one and keep “feeding” the area.


There are other types of poultices, especially a drawing one life my Black Super Draw Poultice that you will want to change frequently: A drawing poultice removes impurities and poisons out of the body and can be more effective if changed 1 to 3 times a day.


But generally, once a poultice has dried on a wound, I consider it a part of the body, just like a scab. It will come off when it's time.


A good example is, many years ago, I was with someone who cut the tip of their finger entirely off. The finger was bleeding profusely, so I dumped a handful of cayenne pepper and just stuck it to the rest of the finger.


I covered the whole area with an herbal poultice mainly made up of comfrey leaf and root, garlic, slippery elm and a few other herbs. After adding more poultice in the next few hours, I finally wrapped gauze around the whole area. The next morning we realized that the poultice had dried hard with the gauze and this person now had a rock hard herbal cast on their finger. I said not to worry; in about 3 days it worked itself off and we found a beautifully healed finger.


The finger tip was reconnected with the finger. Only a slight redness was around the cut area, but we could see lots of cayenne pepper under the new skin between the finger tip and the finger. I assured the person that the body would just digest the cayenne pepper and it did. A month later there was not even a scar.


Other poultices that are wonderful are those for itching and irritated skin, for drawing the poisons out of stings and bites, to heat an area (the famous mustard plaster), and for glandular infections or congestion. You can put a poultice on just about anything you can come up with. A poultice can also be applied between two layers of gauze or light cotton if, for some reason, you don't want the actual herbs to touch the skin.


As a poultice dries, it becomes more and more pulling. To increase the pulling power you can add drawing herbs and even bentonite clay. One of my favorite additions to an herbal poultice is fresh aloe vera leaf gel; it adds soothing and healing qualities, helping your body repair itself 2 to 10 times faster than normal.


Besides herbal poultices, vegetable poultices have also been used widely over the years with potatoes, onions, carrots, beets, garlic, cucumbers, and a wide variety of greens. Cayenne, ginger, mustard and horseradish have all been popular for use in heating and stimulating poultices.


Healing and soothing poultices made from slippery elm, marshmallow, aloes, calendula, lobelia, and mullein have had extensive use. Seed and grain poultices have also been used over the years (oats, barley, flax, etc.) with very soothing effects.


Let's not forget fruit poultices. Bananas, figs, apples, papayas and melons all make excellent poultices. Last but not least is plantain. It grows in most people's yards and is a classic for everything from bites and stings to blood poisoning.


Suppositories, Boluses and Pessaries


Suppositories, boluses, and pessaries are basically herbal poultices used internally. They are generally made with a mucilaginous herb base like slippery elm or an oil base like coconut oil or cocoa butter.


They are inserted into body openings (vagina, rectum, nasal opening, ears, mouth, etc.) to distribute their herbal power to internal areas.


In making your bolus, you will want your herbs FINELY powdered so the bolus will be as smooth as possible. You will want to add something to the mixture to give it a slippery consistency.


A soft bolus can be made by adding slippery elm bark powder to your herbal mixture. Slippery elm is very mucilaginous when mixed with water and is a great soothing, healing, and nutritional agent. If you desire a harder bolus, as is sometimes preferred in the rectal and .vaginal areas, coconut oil works the best.


Take a jar of coconut oil and place the jar in a bowl of hot water: In a short time the oil will melt; Depending on your air temperature, it may already be in a liquid state.


Mix the melted coconut oil with the finely powdered herbs you choose into a dry pie dough consistency. Shape and form the herb mixture into the size and shape of the suppository you desire. (This can vary greatly depending on the area in which they are to be used and the size of the individual.)


Place the individual boluses on a piece of wax paper, stainless steel, or glass plate and refrigerate them. Refrigeration will make them hard. When you want to use one, take it out of the refrigerator, hold it between your fingers for just a few seconds (the coconut oil will begin so melt) and insert the bolus. Use some olive oil to lubricate the area of insertion first.


When the bolus is inside of the body, the body temperature will cause the coconut oil to melt rapidly and the herbs will be dispersed.


Suppositories are commonly used for rectal cleansing, hemorrhoids, vaginal infections, irritation, inflammation, and problems with the whole reproductive area.


Douches and Enemas


Douches and enemas are liquid injections into the vagina and rectum, usually in the form of infusion or decoction, vegetable, nut and seed oils, or aloe vera gel.


These injections can be used to wash out a bolus, to cleanse the area, and to supply the area with herbal, medicinal, and nutritional properties.


Rectal injections can be extremely important. In some cases, when a person cannot accept liquids, food, and medicinal agents orally, they can be fed through a bowel injection.


Herbal Syrups


A syrup is basically an infusion or a decoction and, sometimes, a tincture to which maple syrup, vegetable glycerine, honey, or sugar has been added. These substances are added mainly to preserve the solution, but also give the liquid a thicker, stickier, and more coating consistency and make it much more palatable to children.


I prefer maple syrup over the others and used it successfully in my clinic for years. If you use glycerin make sure it is vegetable, not animal or petroleum derived.


Usually, adding maple syrup (1/4 to 1/2 of the volume) will work perfectly. I can get most children to swallow any herbal tincture just by adding 1/2 or 50% maple syrup.


You can make a very strong syrup by simmering down your decoction to less than its original amount before adding the syrup. If you “slowly” simmer your decoction down to 1/2 its original amount, you have what used to be referred to as a 3 power decoction. If you simmer your 3 power decoction down to 1/2 this amount you will have a 7 power decoction. By adding maple syrup to this you have 3 & 7 power syrup. Always try to find organic maple syrup; it must be 100% pure maple syrup.


Herbal Oils


What I will explain here is the extraction of oil from herbs. I prefer to use olive oil; almond works well, too. A common oil extraction is oil of garlic. There are many other types of oil extractions you can make in a similar way. It is most important that your herbs are either dried or that, when fresh, the liquid in the herbs mixes well with oil. Water in your oil will be a sure way to have spoilage and problems.


In making a garlic oil, you peel, cut, and chop many cloves of garlic; then cover the bottom of a bowl with at least 1 inch of cloves. I use glass or Pyrex bowls. Don't use any container the solution can react badly with, like aluminum.


Cover the garlic with your oil and set it in a warm place for 1 go 3 days. Cover with gauze or cheesecloth to keep bugs out. You can place it in a warm oven that is turned off or over a heat register, as long as it doesn't get too hot.


Occasionally, I like to mash the garlic with a potato masher to squeeze out all the “goodness.” When you feel the oil is right, strain your mixture through cheesecloth or cotton and bottle. If you refrigerate this, it will keep longer.


Oils can be made from any herb bark, stem, leaf, root, etc. With some herbs, you will definitely want to heat the oil to a higher temperature for varying amounts of time but never above 120 degrees. Generally you will want to steep your herbs in your oil for 14 days with the moons, the same way as described in detail in the tincture sections


Oils are great remedies for internal use and wonderful for external applications (wounds, infections, skin problems, massage, etc), Making a good oil takes time and practice. When you turn out a good one, your time and patience are rewarded.


Commercial essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, and thousands of others are usually made by steam distillation. It can take hundreds of pounds of herbs to make only a few ounces. For the moss: part you are better off buying good quality essential oils. They make nice additions to the herbal oils you make. A few drops added to your oils is a nice finishing touch.


Herbal Tinctures


Herbal Tinctures are technically fluid extract of herbs. Where we use water to extract in an infusion or decoction, we add alcohol to the water or apple cider vinegar, when making a tincture.


There are many advantages of tinctures over infusions and decoctions. One is that there are many medicinal properties in herbs that are not water soluble. While many of the chemical properties of herbs do dissolve in water, there are also some important properties that do not. In fact, many essential oils, resins, alkaloids, steroids, etc., dissolve better in a water/alcohol base and some don't dissolve in water at all.


Like infusions and decoctions, the medicinal properties in tinctures can be digested and assimilated easier than consuming herbal capsules or the raw herbs, especially if a person's digestion is bad. The medicinal properties of herbs in a tincture get into the bloodstream the fastest, almost instantly. Unlike infusions and decoctions, tinctures are quick; they are already made up and on hand. This makes them invaluable for first aid kits and emergency applications.


Tinctures are also much more concentrated than teas. As little as 2-3 drops of good tincture can equal and excel the medicinal properties of a whole cup of tea. Tinctures made with an alcohol base are also good antiseptics for open wounds.


The alcohol we use to make tinctures is grain alcohol. This means it is distilled from a fermented grain “mash.” Denatured, isopropyl (rubbing alcohol), or methyl (wood alcohol) are never used because they are poisonous.


Although all herbal medicinal chemicals are best extracted in various percentages of alcohol, the standard tincture solvent solution (base) is 50% grain alcohol and 50% water. 50% alcohol is equal to 100 proof. (Alcohol % x 2 equals the proof or proof divided by 2 equals the alcohol %.)


Many people have used 80 proof (40%) alcohol solutions successfully throughout the years and for most herbs this will make a great tincture. Dr. Christopher always said to use 90 proof (45%) alcohol or better. When your end cost per ounce will be so little anyway I suggest using 100 proof vodka which is a 50/50 solution of grain alcohol and water.


For people who have an emotional aversion to consuming alcohol, I will make the following statements...


Grain alcohol dissolves and extracts certain important phytochemicals (plant chemicals) better than just water alone. For example, the diosgenin in discorea villousa is only soluble in alcohol, not in water. Alcohol also preserves tinctures and gives them an almost indefinite shelf life, at least over 5 years.


The actual amount of alcohol per dosage of 30 to 60 drops is so small that there is more in some mouthwashes. This dosage has been tested on people who are alcohol sensitive with no adverse reactions. It is also a safe amount for anyone in a 12 step program or Alcoholics Anonymous.


Vodka, by law, can be nothing more than grain alcohol and water: this is the reason why it is the choice of most herbalists. It is obviously a very safe alcohol also, because it is specifically designed for human consumption.


Other whiskeys may contain the correct amount of alcohol but also contain impurities, colorings, flavorings, preservatives, and toxic substances. Gin is grain alcohol flavored with juniper, but also may contain other additives. Dr. Christopher used to suggest brandy (distilled, grape wine). Although it has been used for hundreds of years for tinctures, modern brandies usually contain many additives (colors, preservatives, flavors, etc.).


So, vodka is our best and purest grain alcohol base. Everclear, or pure grain spirits, is available in some areas of the United States. It can range from 150 to 190 proof (75-95% alcohol). It can be used straight or diluted with distilled water to make tinctures.


Some herbal properties, such as gums and resins, will release properties better at this higher alcohol content.


Pure apple cider vinegar (acetic acid) is also a good tincture base for certain herbs, especially lobelia inflata. It is not as strong a solvent as grain alcohol. Tinctures made with vinegar are less drying to the skin; they can be nice for liniments, and are slightly antiseptic.


Always use a health food store brand of pure apple cider vinegar. Naturally aged, unfiltered and raw, organic, and not distilled, if possible. One main problem I have with apple cider vinegar tinctures, especially my Super Tonic (garlic, cayenne, ginger root, onion and horseradish) is that they taste so delicious that I drink them all and “eat” my profits. Also, the people who buy them from me don't have colds; they just know a good salad dressing when they taste one.


In most cases, the best way to make a tincture is using fresh herbs. This can be simply done by putting fresh herbs in a blender, adding your water/alcohol solution, and then just turning the blender on. By turning your herbs and solution into this herbal appeases, more alcohol solution will reach individual cells of the plant and make a stronger tincture than if you just dropped a whole root in a jar and covered it with alcohol.


If you have dried herbs and want to powder them, an inexpensive way to do this is with an electric coffee grinder or a mortar and pestle. If you use an electric type of grinder be careful not to “cook” your herbs in the grinding process. You could break the blades off with hard roots.


If you are going to be making many tinctures, you are best off making them all separately. Specifically, you are better off making separate lobelia, valerian root, skullcap, wild lettuce, hops and cayenne tinctures, than putting them all together in one jar. If you make them all together, you have a nice antispasmodic, nervine formula; but, if you make them separately, you could have just a straight emetic formula (lobelia), a stimulant formula (cayenne), a pain formula (wild lettuce and valerian root), an insomnia formula (hops and valerian) or any number of different combinations.


Making the Tincture


The first thing to remember is that making a tincture is fun. You are going to put your love and “good energy” into making this preparation. If you are all “nerved up” and in a bad mood, your tincture will taste like it.

Most proportion rules in the past have been 4 ounces of dried herb to one pint (16 ounces) of alcohol or 8 ounces of herb to a quart (32 ounces). Herbs have many varying weights and densities, which makes this type of formula ridiculous. What I have found to work best over the years is simply my half to full rule. Blend your herbs with your alcohol and then pour the solution into a big glass jar.


I let it settle for a day to see where the herbs end and the liquid starts. You want the herbs to settle at least halfway up to the top of the jar. If they settle to less, add more herbs.


If you want a stronger tincture, then make sure the herbs settle to 3/4 of the way to the top; a really strong tincture could be all pulp, like applesauce. This rule has worked better for me in my pharmacy over the years than all the rules in every herb book I have read.


You need to use your common sense when putting a tincture-together. Eight ounces of mullein or red raspberry leaf may not even, fit into a quart jar, so you have to use your best judgment. Follow my 1/2 to full method and you will never fail.


Common, inexpensive tincture jars are one (1) quart canning jars. A clear glass jar lets you observe the tincture as it's “working” and is okay to use as long as you keep it in a dark place, out of sunlight. Do not plastic, metal, or any other type of container that your base (alcohol) may react with undesirably.


Pour your solvent over the herbs and seal the jar. It should be shaken vigorously for several minutes to make sure there are no clumps of herb that have stuck together.


At this point you can open the jar and usually add more alcohol or herbs. Once your jar is fully packed, it is NOT to be reopened until the tincture is done. From this point on until it is finished, it should be shaken at least three (3) times daily or, as Dr. Christopher said, “every time you walk by it.”


The tincture is left in the jar for two weeks. Start the tincture on the new moon and squeeze it out on the full moon (Many tests have been done by Dr. Christopher and myself as to the strength and potency of tinctures in relationship to the time they “brewed” and the phases of the moon; in all cases, those made in accordance with the phases of the moon made the strongest tincture.)


Obviously, most manufacturers of commercial tinctures nowadays, who use a 3 or 4 day “special process” and ignore the moon phases, are making a highly inferior product.


There are many astrological books and almanacs that give the times of the New Moon and Full Moon, although you may have to || calibrate these times to your local area.


Most herbalists don't get too critical on the time, but go just by the day of the Full Moon. It is nice to keep a record of your tinctures as well as your other herbal preparations. I record the amounts of herbs, where I got them, the amount of base and % of alcohol, the date, and any other pertinent information. This logging of information could lead you to making fairly consistent tinctures.


The big complaint the A.M.A. and F.D.A. have of herbal preparations is that they are not standardized.


Even if you make a preparation the same exact way each time, you can't rely on the herbal medicinal properties being in the same quantity from one bunch of herbs to another. How Wonderful!!! This is nature's beautiful way of adjusting not only the chemical properties of herbs from season to season, but also the chemical properties to the local area for the local people.


We are not all living in the same climate, doing the same things, eating the same foods, etc. Personally, I would rather experiment with a dosage of a natural remedy than take any of the poisonous, isolated, synthesized chemicals the pharmaceutical industry has to offer.


You will first want to filter your tincture well through a natural fiber like cotton or through paper coffee filters (brown unbleached ones only.) Laboratory grade filters work well, too. Let's not forget the old cotton diaper cloth — it works great. If you use a funnel, use a glass one, not plastic or metal.


Bottle your tinctures in amber glass jars with tight lids. Laboratory polyseal are good airtight, leakproof tops. I usually put my tinctures in. 16 oz. or 32 oz. amber glass jars and then pour or mix them into 1 or 2 oz amber bottles with glass droppers as needed. A glass dropper is necessary. You don't want a plastic dropper sitting in your tinctures or you will end up with a nice tincture of plastic.


Always label your tincture preparation jar, your tincture storage jars, and your 1 oz. or 2 oz. dosage jars to identify the type of tincture in them. I also include the base used, % of alcohol, and the date of bottling. An unlabeled tincture is dangerous and can be an unpleasant “surprise.”


Herbal Salves, Ointments and Balms


In the 1970's, the California State Department of Health (and I'm sure this will be followed by the U. S. Department of Health and the Food and Drug Administration) decided that the words “salve,” “ointment," “unguent,” and probably “balm” indicate a medicinal substance and can be used only in a pharmaceutical preparation. You will notice in the herbal industry ointments and salves generally have odd and creative names such as herbal savvy, green goo, and unpetroleum jelly.


Herbal salves, ointments, and balms are the most often used of the herbal preparations. With the oil soluble medicinal properties of the herbs, suspended into the preparations, we have a multi-versatile product.


A general purpose herb salve could be used for cuts, bruises, scrapes, burns, sunburn, insect bites and stings, plant irritations, sore or rough skin, and dry skin. We can also make salves to draw out poisons, vapor salves for the nose, salves for eczema and dermatitis, lip salves — the possibilities are endless! Like tinctures, salves are great for herbal first-aid kits and first-aid applications.


The Base for Herbal Salves


The best base of all that I have used is olive oil and beeswax. Olive oil supplies the medium for the herbal medicinal properties to be placed in and beeswax provides the hardening agent to the olive oil.


Although olive oil is the most generally used oil, other types of vegetable, nut, and seed oils can be used. Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fats and so it has a good shelf life and is naturally healing and soothing to the skin. It also contains many vitamins, including A, D, E, and K, as well as many minerals. Olive oil just by itself is a great medicinal agent for the skin and a nutritious food for the body. Some other oils that are acceptable are almond and sesame.


Petroleum oils and mineral oils are in many commercial “name brand” preparations (for example; Vaseline Petroleum Jelly). In my opinion, they're wonderful for lubricating car engines and packing wheel bearings but who would want to put this garbage on their skin?


Coconut oil and cocoa butter can also be used for salves, but melting and softening them at room temperature makes your salve very unstable and on a hot day your ointment turns into an herbal soup. To make a creamier salve you can replace some of your beeswax with these products.


Beeswax, which is most commonly used as the hardening agent for the base, is available in different forms. Generally you can get it white (bleached) or brown (unbleached). I suggest the brown — unbleached, which is in its natural state and not chemically altered. It also still contains naturally occurring medicinal ingredients such as propolis.


The general base formula I use is one quart (32 fluid ounces) of olive oil with 1/2 pound (8 ounces weight) of beeswax. If you want a real creamy ointment, like petroleum jelly, use the 4 ounces of beeswax.


The temperature of the area where you live will also come into play. I make my heating balm formula fairly creamy for California. In upstate New York, in the winter, its consistency gets very hard; and during my trip to India this Spring, with temperatures in the 120 degree range, it turned into soup.


Herbs in Salves


Use dried herbs. Fresh herbs can be used, but since they contain water, this can encourage mold and bacterial growth — just what you don't want in your salve. This can be somewhat controlled by adding natural preservatives and keeping your salve refrigerated, but it's a big; problem.


Basically, cut your herbs finely like described in the tincture section so that the oil can reach maximum plant cells. It is best to use dried, finely cut or powdered herbs.


Some of the most common salves made are...


* General purpose herbal salves with comfrey, mullein, chickweed, marshmallow, marigold, arnica, saint johnswort, etc.

* Infection salves with goldenseal root & myrrh gum is an old time favorite. Add essential oils like tea tree oil.

* Skin cleansing and drawing salves with plantain, chaparral, red clover blossoms, and poke root.

* Vapor balms with essential oils of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, etc.


How to make Ointments


Some herbalists prefer the old cast iron pots, others prefer stainless steel double boilers. Some use a crock pot plugged into a light dimmer switch which gives me a variable control on the temperature. Whichever vessel you choose, it is helpful to have a food thermometer that ranges from at least 80 degrees to 160 degrees F. You can get one in almost any grocery store that ranges from 0 degrees to 220 degrees F.


Let's assume that your herbs have been brewing in your oil in a jar for the last two weeks; you started on the new moon and it is now the full moon. Strain your oil through a cotton cloth and a stainless strainer. You may want to do this a few times because usually you don't want a “gritty” salve. At this point you have a decision to make.


Dr. Christopher frequently talks of single power, 3 power and 7 power ointments. To make a 3 power ointment, strain the oil and herb mixture when it's done and then add more dried herb to this solution and let it “brew” all over again. When you strain this solution you have a 3 power ointment which is much stronger medicinally than your regular ointment.


To make a 7 power ointment, repeat the process with your 3 power oil and strain. Now you have a 7 power solution. Whichever you choose to make, always strain your oil well, pressing and squeezing the oil saturated herbs because the rich properties can cling to the herbs.


Next, put the amount of beeswax you are going to use into separate, small pan and heat until it is melted, being careful not to overheat or burn it. Some beeswax takes up to 140 degrees to melt.


In the meantime, warm the herbal oil that you pressed out to about 120 degrees and then slowly pour in the melted beeswax and stir during this process. Many try to melt the beeswax in the herbal oil. This works but you have to heat the oil way too hot so the 2 pan method works much better.


You definitely want to make a test pouring, which could save you lot of time and mess. Take a sample of your solution and pour into it a small container or just drip some on the counter top and it will harden quickly. See if it's the consistency that you want. You can always add more beeswax but you can't go the other way


Putting Ointments into Jars


When you feel your consistency is right, ladle or pour your solution (a glass laboratory pipette works well) into your containers. A glass turkey baster works just as well. 1/4 02., 1 oz., 2 oz., or 6 oz. wide-mouth jelly jars — use any container that suits your needs. Don't move or mess with your jars after you have poured your ointment or it will crack and puddle. Leave the clean up for later. Leave the tops off until the ointment is hard.


Seal your containers tightly Dr. Christopher has always suggested that with ointments, tinctures, syrups, or any herbal preparation you want to store for a long time to seal with paraffin wax. You can do this by-heating up a vessel of paraffin wax and dipping your sealed jar or bottle upside down into the hot wax. This makes a long lasting air tight seal.


Making an essential oil ointment is very easy. You can either add the essential oils before you add the beeswax or after. That's all. When making your first ointment, an essential oil “Vapor Balm” is a good one  to start with.

Appendix F: Answers to Readers' Questions,


Dr. Schulze's detoxification cocktail for tough cases, especially cancer.


SCHULZE: I also have a recipe for a detoxification cocktail that I used a lot in my clinic which was: 10 ounces of carrot juice, 3 ounces of beet root and beet greens, 2 ounces of a combination of broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower and you can even add kale to that, one ounce of wheat grass and 2-4 cloves of garlic.


It tastes a lot better than you think it would, especially with that base of carrot juice. That was my detoxification cocktail for everybody to have at least one, 16 ounce a day, if not 16 ounces three times a day, whatever they could tolerate.


Reader's Question: How can the program be implemented for persons who are on oxygen 24 hours a day?


SCHULZE: They can do all the programs.


BISER: Does that mean they can't drink teas?


SCHULZE: No, they would just have an oxygen tube going up their nose, probably meaning they can't do extreme physical therapy. They can still do the hot and cold and everything else.


BISER: How? Maybe they can't get out of bed if they are hooked up.


SCHULZE: They should be able to, because the tanks are on wheels. People fly in airplanes with those tanks. So, they need to get the mobile tank and they can do the hot and cold. They can do everything. They can even go outside for a walk. You see people walking around at the airport carrying those little carts with an oxygen tank on it and the tubes that go out from it. I have had many patients do the full Incurables Program, all of it, while connected to oxygen.


BISER: If they can't move, Richard could they have a person wash the effected part with hot and cold?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Someone applies hot and cold to the area. You lie down and they put ice packs and steamy hot towels on you. Also, if they can't move, do bodywork. Someone needs to massage them; move that limb and move that blood. I would think that would be for all the people on oxygen; you really need to force them to get the idea that they need to move their bodies.


Reader's Question: Is the program safe for someone who had a massive heart attack?


SCHULZE: Yes. The key with a massive heart attack is making sure they wouldn't have another. They stop eating all animal food and get on garlic and red clover right away. That thins the blood. They only had a heart attack because the heart got blocked off by fatty, thick blood. So, once the blood is thinned and they're juice fasting for a week, they are out of most of the danger.


I would say hold up on doing the heavy duty hot and cold and exercise while they juice fast for a week and take lots of garlic and red clover. The blood will be thin by then and they can safely do the hot and cold and exercise.


BISER: So, use intuition?


SCHULZE: That's right. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. Don't do it because the manual says do it. Do it because you feel it is right.


Reader's Question: How do you do the hot and cold treatment if you have a device in your body that administers chemotherapy?


SCHULZE: What about steamy hot towels or ice packs? With chemo, what you want to do is cover that device with plastic so you make sure it doesn't get wet. Then apply ice bags. You can put ice in a towel and wet it. I mean make a real cold ice pack and apply that to the body, then apply steamy hot towels.


There's even something on the market called hydrocolators, these are sand bags which you put in boiling water. They retain heat incredibly well. You put that on the body, or just put hot towels on the body, then ice packs, then hot towels, then ice packs.


Get your feet in hot and cold towels and hot water/cold water.


Reader's Question: Hot castor oil packs are tough to use, as well as poultices. How do you keep it attached to the body all night?


BISER: Why are they tough to use?


SCHULZE: I don't know. I don't know what they are talking about. I mean I don't know why the poultices are hard. If they make the poultices right and they use slippery elm or clay, you can't shake it off the body. It sticks to the body.


Bentonite clay or slippery elm should be 1/3-1/2 of the poultice formula. That's the base — 1/3 minimum to 1/2 maximum. It is slippery. Then you put in the other 50% of the herbs you want — chopped fresh garlic, whatever. If you do that and don't mix a lot of water with it — often people make it too wet and slippery — it should be like gluey mud.


You put that on. It is also important to press it into the body. When you put it on, you work it in. If you just set it there, it might fall off. Work it into the skin. Work it onto the body. Eventually, the glue is stuck so hard to your body you won't be able to get it off. But, don't be afraid to use gauze and tape if you need it.


BISER: So why can't people just put plastic over the area and wrap it?


SCHULZE: If it's a large breast area, put a large bra on over it. If it's on your leg, wrap plastic around it. Use a big plastic garbage bag. Cut it so it's a big sheet. Wrap it around you and use pieces of tape and gauze. The castor oil packs are definitely slippery. But, just cover it with gauze or an Ace bandage. Ace bandages work great. Just get a castor oil flannel on and wrap an Ace bandage around it a couple of times.


Reader's Question: Some people with diabetes claim to be getting poor results from the program, even though they are doing everything correctly and even doubling the dosage for the formula specific to diabetes. Any advice, or something that could be overlooked?


SCHULZE: I know exactly who is writing. There are two people who have written me and have also written the University of Natural Healing. One man who has been a diabetic for 20 years wrote in and said he is very disappointed with the incurables program because, after the 30 days, he only had a 20% reduction in his insulin.


Hallelujah! 20% — that means he is taking 20% less or 1/5 less insulin than he took before and he's been a diabetic for 20 years. What did he expect, to turn into Superman after 30 days on the incurables program?


Come on. This is the incurables program. Thirty days and he's got a 20% reduction in insulin and he's been a diabetic most of his life.


He thought that was disappointing. That's his problem right there. It's his attitude. I think it's thrilling; if he did the incurables program every other month and continued on a 20% reduction, in a year's time or less than a year's time, he would be off insulin. He's disappointed with that? What did he want? A three-day turn around?


Another guy called up and had a 15% reduction in insulin intake and he was thrilled. That just goes to show you the difference of where people's heads are at with their reduction. I think that's terrific.


I think people have the wrong impression. They think that after 30 days of the incurables program, after 40 years of disease and hurting their body, they are going to turn into a perfect individual. It's a step, okay? It's a step in the right direction. Some people will be totally healed, but I guarantee everybody will have a dramatic improvement.


I think a 20% reduction in insulin intake for a 20-year diabetic is a dramatic improvement. You don't get that with taking cedar berries on their own. I've never seen it. I think that's a dramatic improvement, so what people want is medical treatment. Cut this out and it's over. The incurables program works. All right, next question.


Reader’s Question: Do any of the formulas contain any gluten? We know some people's colons are intolerant to gluten.




Reader's Question: In the User Manual, it says 8 ounces of garlic, and then it says you need a full pound of cloves to make 8 ounces of garlic juices. It is a typo. It should say, “To make 8 ounces of garlic juice takes one full pound or more of fresh garlic.”


SCHULZE: Yes, that should be 8 oz. of garlic juice. Some garlic is very juicy and some isn't. But it's more like a pound or more of garlic to get 8 ounces.


Reader's Question: How long do I have to stay in the cold sheet?


SCHULZE: Try to stay in the cold sheet at least an hour, if not all night long; as much as you can handle, depending on how sick a person is. The minimum time to do the whole cold sheet treatment is 2 1/2 to 3 hours.


Reader's Question: What kind of echinacea is good to use?


SCHULZE: They all work fine. Angustifolia is the American standard. Purpurea is the European standard. Either one works great. In the clinic, I used Echinacea Angustifolia root with Echinacea Purpurea seeds.


Reader's Question: A person wants to soak his feet in cayenne for circulation, but has ulcers on his feet. Can he still do this?


SCHULZE: Yes. And it will be great for the ulcers.


BISER: It won't burn or make the ulcers worse?


SCHULZE: No. Not cayenne. Garlic would. Cayenne won't. It'll just bring blood there. If they have any fear, just put a little olive oil on the ulcer. Buffer them a little bit. You can soak your feet. Now, when they're saying cayenne, I'm assuming they mean hot water with a little cayenne in it. Not putting their feet in a bag of cayenne.


We're talking about a handful of cayenne to two gallons of hot water. Their feet will get very hot but it will not burn the flesh. But most important, with any leg or foot ulcer, keep cleansing the bowel. Use Intestinal Formula #1 and #2 until the ulcers are gone.


Reader's Question: Can you make wintergreen oil at home?


SCHULZE: Not likely Wintergreen oil is an essential oil. The oil from wintergreen or birch is distilled out of the leaves and bark and is a very concentrated, essential oil.


For the most part, people can't make an essential oil at home. It is something that is steam distilled. They take thousands and thousands of pounds of eucalyptus leaves, put them in a big contained still and steam off drops of oil. That's why essential oil is very, very concentrated and sometimes expensive.


You can make oil of garlic at home; we talked about that. For the most part, you can't make an essential oil at home.


Reader's Question: What is the lower end of dosage for the number one colon formula?


SCHULZE: Some people take one capsule and it's too much, especially people who have 2-3 bowel movements a day already. They can take half a capsule, a quarter capsule. Just open up the capsule, pour the powder out into a dish and use a half or quarter capsule.


But the average person can start with one capsule.


Reader's Question: People cannot find instructions on how to administer the lobelia, apple cider vinegar, and alcohol formula for Parkinson's.


We'll cover two things here: how to make a lobelia tonic and how to administer it.


BISER: And you use this for Parkinson's?


SCHULZE: Oh, yes, you can use it for everything. Lobelia is the greatest anti-spasmodic. To make the lobelia tincture, your base liquid, instead of just being 40% alcohol or 80 proof vodka is 2/3 80 proof vodka and 1/3(?) Spectrum brand organic raw apple cider vinegar. So it's 2/3 40% to 1/3 vinegar. That's your base for the lobelia tincture. And you use the same measurements that we always use for making tinctures, as how much to put in. Now, if you can get...


BISER: You mean jam in as much as you can.


SCHULZE: If you use the seeds and pods, it will be at least 3/4 of the full weight in the jar. You put your lobelia, whether it's stalks, leaves, root, pods, whatever, in a blender with alcohol and vinegar, blend it up, sad pour that into your canning jar.


The solid matter should settle no lower than 3/4 of the way. That’s your powerful tincture. So that's how you make the lobelia tincture.


How do you administer the lobelia tincture? 5-10 drops at your first administration. See how that feels. It should itch the back of your throat. That's the good sign of lobelia. And, if you can handle that, you can go upwards of a whole bottle. I've seen people take an entire one ounce bottle of lobelia tincture without any detrimental side effects.


BISER: Without puking their guts out? Why did they take the bottleful? What kind of emergency were they having?


SCHULZE: For breathing problems. To dilate the bronchials. Of course, it did dilate the bronchials. They breathed much better. For an asthma attack. For people that are very sensitive, you can take two dropperfuls and puke your guts out. So, you have to find your own individual tolerance. I have to point out that vomiting with lobelia is good and will bring up dead and infected material from the lungs.


BISER: What kind of effect have you seen in Parkinson's relief?


SCHULZE: It stops all muscular spasms.


If you're working with someone with Parkinson's disease, the key is getting the B vitamins. In the Parkinson's chapter, we mentioned getting the nutritional yeast in, so you have the B vitamin foods. We talked about stimulating immunity, also.


Reader's Question: Is the B, F & C the formula for double hernia, or do they use something else?


SCHULZE: To be quite honest, I look at a hernia like a wound. A gunshot wound. With a hernia, you have a tear through the muscles of your abdomen, your intestines are coming out. I suggest people go to the doctor and have it stitched up. I really do.


You've ripped the muscle wall of your abdomen. If you strangulate your intestines, you can kill yourself in a few days. I mean, this to me is like a car accident. I know there are people out there who say they can heal hernias naturally and you can go to them. But this is one of the few times I recommend going to a doctor.


BISER: Okay, once they get back from the doctor, what can they do?


SCHULZE: Then, you put on any general purpose herbal salve. Make yourself a B, F & C salve by following the B, F and C formula given in the Manual. Or they could make the B, F & C fomentation if they want. My favorite is aloe vera and hot and cold.


Reader's Question: How to use the herbal heating oil formula for muscle, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, joint and bone healing?


SCHULZE: Put it on and rub it in. It is an oil. You put it on the area. The key is to rub it in for 5-15 minutes. Give yourself a real good massage in that area. If you want to accentuate it, take a hot shower or bath. Then put a hot towel in the area. Open those pores and put it on. Then, it’s very — I have to caution people — very intense. Take it out of the bottle and rub it in.


BISER: Could you put some on a hot cloth and use it as a compress?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. You can even put plastic over it. But most peaple are sorry they did, it is too hot.


BISER: Did it burn?


SCHULZE: It's very intense, depending on the area you put it; especially don't get it near your eyes or your genitals, but, it will not burn the skin.


BISER: What would it do if you accidentally did?


SCHULZE: It won't hurt you. It will just make you wish you didn't do it. You'll have some agony for a few hours, but it won't burn the skin or cause any disruption.


BISER: How many times a day can they use it if they are really sore?


SCHULZE: All day long. Rub it in every hour — keep rubbing it in.


Reader's Question: For myasthenia gravis, people are confused if they are to use the skull cap, oats, blue cohosh, black cohosh, lobelia formula in liquid or ointment form.


SCHULZE: A liquid. The answer is a liquid.


Reader's Question: Another question I have on nerve diseases. For myasthenia gravis or Parkinson's, are there any herbs that you specifically emphasize for one of those nerve diseases?


SCHULZE: No, because science is lumping them all into a great category now. They are calling almost all of them autoimmune diseases.


In other words, the immune system is eating up the nervous system. The body is working improperly. They all need B vitamins. They all need nerve-stimulating herbs. They can also use the anti-spasmodic herbs like the black and blue cohosh formula and the immune boosting herbs like echinacea. See the chapter in the manual.


BISER: He says, “I have looked for formulas in the manual but could not find one.”  Well, there are two formulas.


SCHULZE: The skull cap, oats and celery seed formula is my nerve stimulator. This is the formula that should be used to stimulate the nervous system. Use two parts skull cap, two parts oat seed, two parts celery seed, one part St. John's wort, one part lavender, one part coffee, or you could use kola nut, either one. That's to wake the nervous system up.


For a nerve sedative, make a formula with valerian root, lobelia, passion flower, black cohosh, catnip, camomile; you can use equal parts of those. But I would use two parts of the valerian, two of lobelia, two parts of passion flower and one part of each of the rest. That's a nervine sedative formula.


The third formula I call Nervine Anti-Spasmodic. It is for spasm. That could be for epilepsy, spasms caused by brain tumors, nervous twitches. This is based on Dr. Christopher's black and blue cohosh formula. I put in equal parts of black cohosh, blue cohosh, blue vervain, skull cap, and lobelia. But, I also add one part each of skunk cabbage root and wild yam which are great anti-spasmodics.


You can use all three of these for the same disease, depending on what you want to do.


For myasthenia gravis or Parkinson's disease, you might decide to use the nerve stimulator all day long and then the nervine sedative and the anti-spasmodic to go to sleep at night.


BISER: Can the herbs be used individually? You said you have people take baths in different herbs.


SCHULZE: Oh, yes. Sure, sure.


BISER: If you were going to use herbs individually, what would you pick?


SCHULZE: Well, for sedation the valerian is the greatest. For all around usage, lobelia, because it is anti-spasmodic. It is a sedative and it stimulates the nervous system.


BISER: So they can take a bath in lobelia tincture?




BISER: How much lobelia in the bath water?


SCHULZE: Oh, a little lobelia goes a long way. You could start out withfive to ten dropperfuls of lobelia in a bathtub.


One thing that's great about lobelia is, when I used to do body work, I would put lobelia tincture on a muscle that's been spasming: and body work it right in. It will stop the spasm right in the muscle. So you can use it. If someone has sensitive skin, always put a little on and try it first.


You can take lobelia and mix it in any type of liniment as a tincture base.


For spasms and muscles, you could put lobelia on first and the herbal heating oil.


Lobelia works internally and externally. So, some key herbs for the nervous system are; valerian to relax, lobelia as an anti-spasmodic and skull cap to stimulate the nervous system. Those would be the three.


BISER: Did you ever use wild oats in the bath?


SCHULZE: Yes, oats is quite a famous bath. It's used mostly for hives; people think it's because it helps with the rashes. It does, but it's also a nervine herb. It stimulates.


BISER: So you use baths of wild oat tincture?


SCHULZE: Yes, you can use a wild oat tincture or just take oats and put them right in the bath.


BISER: But that's not oatmeal that's been ground up?


SCHULZE: They are whole oats.


Also, a great one is lavender. Lavender baths are famous around the world because they smell and the physical action of the lavender going into you is relaxing to the nervous system. Oats is more of a stimulating bath. Oats is a stimulating bath because it is a stimulating herb tonic.


BISER: How much oats in the water?


SCHULZE: A good amount is 2-4 cups of oats; flattened oat seeds or oatmeal, as long as the oatmeal is the whole or rolled oat seeds.


Reader's Question: What is a simple instruction on how to make a plantain ointment?


SCHULZE: It's real easy. This is for blood poisoning, insect and bee stings, and similar toxic blood conditions. First of all, plantain grows in almost everybody's back yard or front yard. The best way to make a plantain tincture, which you can use internally and/or externally is just pick the fresh plantain leaves, fill your blender with them, pour in your alcohol, blend it up and make a tincture.


It's great. You can use it immediately, but if you let it sit for 14 days and use it with the moon's phase, it is better.


To make a plantain ointment, you have to use dried plantain leaves. You can't use fresh leaves to make any ointment. Use very dry plantain leaves and follow our general ointment instructions.


BISER: What are they?


SCHULZE: Basically, you take your dried plantain leaves, take a 1-quart canning jar and fill it with dried plantain leaves up to about 3/4 of the way. Pour in olive oil until it covers those leaves and fills right up to the top of the canning jar. Shake it every day. The oil content may go down a little bit. Top it off with fresh oil. Shake it and keep it in there for 14 days.


After 14 days, put that oil through a clean dishcloth and strain it out; you'll have a very dark green olive oil that has the plantain properties in it. You take 16 oz. of that olive oil and add four ounces of beeswax; that's how you make your ointment. Four ounces of beeswax to 16 ounces of olive oil.


BISER: Melt the beeswax?


SCHULZE: Melt the beeswax in a sauce pan on the side. Get it and bring your olive oil and plantain up to about 120 degrees and slowly pour in your melted bees wax.


Stir it real well to make sure it's mixed thoroughly and pour it off into jars and let it cool. That's how you make your plantain ointment. You can use either tincture internally and externally, and the ointment externally.


Reader's Question: We have a letter from a man who has a son with a cholesterol level of 996 and triglycerides of 4310; these numbers were checked in June 1994. He says his son has been on Dr. Schulze's program for seven months, yet the cholesterol has only come down 100 points. He also says his son is eating all the “good stuff.”


SCHULZE: He's not following the video, because I said to drop this cholesterol, you needed the Incurables Program, a juice-fasting program.


You fast on juices for 30 days. Sandwiches are not juices. It has to be 100% animal free. I guarantee he is not following the program.


Secondly, the biggest step in lowering cholesterol is the liver flush. You have to do the liver flush for two full alternating weeks in incurables program. We are very specific about that. For 14 days you have to do the liver flush. The program is to do the liver flush for 7 days, then the kidney/bladder flush for 7 days, then the liver flush again for 7 days;  the bottom line is he hasn't done the incurables program.


He can lower his cholesterol to 175 in one month, through the incurables program, I guarantee he is not even doing the program one-half of the way.


Reader's Question: I have cirrhosis of the liver. Can I use African Bird Peppers?


SCHULZE: Yes, a person who has cirrhosis of the liver can use bird pepper, cayenne pepper. Absolutely. But also make sure they are doing the liver flush, taking the liver herbs, eating the bitter greens and doing everything for the liver. The Liver Tonic formula given earlier with milk thistle is the best protector for their liver.


Reader's Question: Can the poultices in the bone cancer section be used for chronic osteomyelitis?


SCHULZE: Yes. You want to get inside the body and that's when you really want to deal with the immune-boosting herbs. Basically, you're talking about having inflammation of the bone marrow. We're talking about the organ we call the bone marrow that manufactures all blood cells.


When you talk about osteomyelitis, my first thoughts are to build that blood. Get the juicer out. 80% carrot juice, 10% beets and beet greens, 10% regular greens.


Build that blood with the Superfoods and the immune formulas. We are talking about inflammation of the bone marrow. You can use poultices, but you want to go inside with osteomyelitis.


Reader's Question: Dr. Christopher's formula called for glycerin. Dr. Schulze's formula calls for vegetable glycerin. Is the type of glycerin important?


SCHULZE: Yes. Nowadays, all you want to use is vegetable glycerin. There are only three sources of glycerin.


One is made from melted down goat esophaguses and horse hoofs. That is called animal glycerin. You don't want to use it. It is toxic.


There's mineral glycerin which is just like mineral oil and there is vegetable glycerin, which is the fat removed from vegetables in the soap manufacturing business.


You want to use the vegetable glycerin. It is the non-toxic one.  But you can also use a great replacement anywhere you use glycerin. Maple syrup would be the primary one. You are looking for a sweetener and also a preservative. Second to maple syrup, I would use honey. I would suggest everyone use maple syrup or honey. They are much better for you than vegetable glycerin.


Nowadays, you can get vegetable glycerin in the health food stores, but the quality is less than that of organic honey or maple synsp, so I'd always go to those first.


BISER: So you wouldn't even use the glycerin?


SCHULZE: Only as a last resort.


Reader's Question: Somebody told me that cayenne pepper should not be used with hypertension.


SCHULZE: Wrong. That's just erroneous. Cayenne pepper is the greatest thing for high blood pressure, but the #1 herb, of course, is garlic. Cayenne is great. It's in Dr. Christopher's blood pressure formula. It's in my blood pressure formula. You eat enough cayenne pepper, and you won't have to go to your doctor, because you won't: have a blood pressure problem.


BISER: Some people have written in, Richard, that just taking cayenne has raised their blood pressure. For those people, why don't they just get on a cleansing program? Maybe the blood is moving, but the colon and everything is clogged up?


SCHULZE: Yes; the blood has the viscosity of mud and it's fatty. I've never seen cayenne raise blood pressure.


In order to determine your blood pressure, you have to take it at least three times a day. For example, at 10, 2, and 7 and in the same position; record that in a log over a period of 2-3 weeks and then tell me what cayenne is doing to your blood pressure — if they are just doing cayenne pepper.


BISER: Yes, these people use cayenne like a medicine and do not go on a cleansing program.


SCHULZE: Cayenne is not the cure for high blood pressure. There are a couple of reasons for high blood pressure. One is because your blood is too thick. The answer is thinning your blood.


You can use red clover to do that and garlic to do that, but still that's not going to help if you are filling your face with Big Macs.

You have to cut your animal and dairy products intake in half. That will immediately start thinning your blood.


You have to flush. Do the liver flushes and clean out the liver. Then, use your herbs on top of it. You will see dramatic change.


Reader's Question: A reader wants to grow some hawthorn, but is confused over which kind to use.


SCHULZE: All of them are fine. Any of the hawthorns are fine. There are certain herbs that grow in only a particular country. Hawthorn grows all over the world, different species of it, and they are all good. The latin genus is Crateagous.


Reader's Question: I have had my gall bladder removed. What can I do in place of the Intestinal and Anti-Parasite Formulas? Are there any other formulas I should be wary of taking?


SCHULZE: A person with their gallbladder removed can do all of the cleansing and building programs as normal. Their gall bladder was removed usually because it was packed full (constipated) with fat, cholesterol and stones and the doctors, instead of showing the patient how to clean it out (liver-gallbladder flushes), cut it out.


This person should do all the bowel cleansing first, ICF#1 and #2 and then do the 5 day cleanse with the liver/gall bladder flushing, the liver gall bladder tonic, and the detox tea. They should just cut all the liver and gall bladder dosages in half to start and then work their way up to normal.


The gall bladder is like the rectum of the liver. Fats and other wastes that are processed by the liver are deposited in the gall bladder. Then, when it is full, the gall bladder contracts and empties the contents, via the bile duct, into the stomach/small intestine (duodenum).


When the gall bladder has been removed, it is a sure sign than it has been congested and possible liver disease is around the corner: It is still possible to flush the liver via the bile ducts, although it should be done with a lesser intensity (start with 1/2 dosages and work up to full) and over a longer period of time (two weeks instead of one week) and more frequently (4 to 6 times a year instead of 2 to 3 times a year).


Reader's Question: I am pregnant. Will any of the formulas or herbs harm my unborn child?


SCHULZE: No herbal formulae will harm an unborn child, but like anything else, when you are pregnant, use moderation. Dr. Christopher believed and practiced that a healthy, clean mother was better than a toxic one. He did all the cleansing programs with his expecting morns.



Keep the bowels open. If they get stuck, don't do a dramatic bowel purge. It can bring on labor in the end of the last trimester.


Fasting and cleansing for a few days is good for mom and baby. SuperFood is a must; double up a.m. and p.m.


Watch your weight gain. This causes more problems in the last trimester than anything else. Optimum weight gain is between 28 and 35 pounds total during the entire pregnancy


Keep moving up until the last day. Moms that stay physically active, not marathons but working, have much easier deliveries and healthier babies.


Get a midwife, have your baby at home, and avoid ob's and pediatricians like the plague.


Readers Question: In the SYL, you mentioned White Oak Bark for regrowing teeth, however, no formula was given, what is it and how is it taken?


SCHULZE: I have rarely seen anyone regrow teeth. If they do, it is the final result of years of cleansing, building, and a great healthy lifestyle. I have never seen anyone just rub a little oak bark on their teeth and, then, the tooth fairy brings new ones.


White oak bark contains high amounts of tannins, a naturally occurring astringent phytochemical. It will tighten loose gums and save loose teeth. Bayberry bark and cranesbill root are also very good for this purpose.


To stimulate blood to the gums for new growth, cayenne is the best. For teeth and gum infections, Tea Tree oil and garlic are the dynamic duo.


Reader's Question: Would the cleansing programs be dangerous for someone on anti-seizure medication?


SCHULZE: No, not generally. I have worked with many patients on Dilantin and other anti-seizure drugs because of brain tumors and unknown causes. Many who were good patients got entirely off their medications. Occasionally, a seizure will happen during an EXTREME cleansing program (incurables) but not with a little bowel, liver, or 5 day cleanse.


The best replacement herbal formula for anti-seizure drugs, the nerve anti-spasmodic given earlier in this appendix, is a miracle formula.


Reader's Question: In the SYL, you mention a patient with Leukemia, but little to no instruction is given. Could you outline a program for people with Leukemia?


SCHULZE: It would be the Incurables Program, with extra emphasis on blood cleansing, detox-regeneration, immune stimulating herbs.


Do the blood building; use superfood. eat iron-rich fruits and vegetables. It is the same basic program.


Reader's Question: When on the cleansing program, is it possible to become depleted of needed nutrients because it causes so much elimination?


SCHULZE: Rarely; and if you use a superfood mixture, never.


You can become dehydrated. With the looser stools created by bowl cleansing, more water is leaving your system. Remember a better name for a cleanse would be a FLUSH. Make sure you are drinking a GALLON (128 ounces) of juice, water, and/or herb tea a day.


Reader's Question: Reader has advanced melanoma and used the poultice formula on a large purplish-red lesion on her hip. Soon after she started using poultice, her skin and tumor turned even more purple and became sensitive. She continued to use the poultice until the tumor puffed up and the small node around it became more sensitive. She finally went to the hospital where they feel the tumor is not getting better. She feels that the poultice caused this.


SCHULZE: I believe this lady did not do the incurables program; she just tried to pull a tumor out with the black poultice. She could be feeding it with a faulty lifestyle and no cleansing while she is trying 10 remove it. This is like trying to bail out the water of a sinking ship while the water is still pouring in a hole on the other side.


Reader's Question: Customer has had a colostomy due to rectal cancer. She is unsure about doing the Incurables Program because, with the colostomy, she is unable to keep the formulas in the bowels. How would she do the program?


SCHULZE: A person with a colostomy can do all of the Incurables Programs except the complete bowel cleanse. They can experiment with #1 bowel formula, but probably will not be able to use it unless most of their bowel is still intact.


If their stools are already liquid, say an illeostomy or a colostomy in the cecum, ascending or transverse colon, they should just use the #2 bowel formula to deep clean the parts left, and assure them of no future disease. They should start with a quarter dose and work up slowly.


Reader's Question: What about genital rashes from doing a cleansing program?


SCHULZE: When you start eliminating a lot out of the bowels and then you wipe, the fecal matter that gets on your skin can be loaded with hydrochloric acid and bile salts, which are very acidic and high alkaline substances.


Normally, you are used to your bowel material sitting in your bowel for days; now it's coming out within hours and those very alkaline and/or acidic substances can burn the skin, your rectum, the skin around your rectum, your butt. It can be very burning and it can even burn into the genitals if it gets up there.


One of the best things, of course, is to wash very thoroughly and use a mild soap. And you will notice that when you wash, it will burn. You are actually washing a burn. And the second best thing is put a 9% solution of tea tree oil, mixed in a base of jojoba oil on the area. And you can use that from little babies with diaper rash all the way to adults.


BISER: What would be a good proportion... what to what?


SCHULZE: Nine percent of tea tree oil and 91% jojoba oil. It's great, soothing and disinfecting, so it will destroy bacteria and fungus but it's also very soothing to irritated skin. And it's a great thing.


Of course there are also aloes. Whenever you think of burns or skin irritations, aloes are also very soothing.


Reader's Question: What different dosages do you recommend of cayenne tincture vs. cayenne powder?


SCHULZE: Some people are more sensitive to cayenne than others. If there is no hurry, I suggest people start with a small amount of the-powder, 2 or 3 times a day and work themselves up to 1/2 to 1 teaspoon, 3 times a day. Or, up to 15 to 30 drops of good tincture.


If they are using the tincture from the American Botanical Pharmacy, use only 5 to 10 drops maximum. People who are sensitive to it can start with as little as 1/8 teaspoon of powder or just a few drops of tincture once or twice a day.


For heart attacks: take a heaping tablespoon of powder in a glass of warm water, or 5 to 10 dropperfuls of tincture.


Reader's Question: Please explain the expansion or gelling of the hawthorn berries in the hawthorn berry syrup.


SCHULZE: Hawthorn berries have a large amount of pectin in them, similar to other fruits. When making the hawthorn berry syrup, the amount of water to hawthorn berries can vary greatly, depending on the time of year you get the berries. Are they dried or fresh? What is their pectin content? The formula is just a basic guideline.


Sometimes, when I have made the syrup, the berries are a bit watery. Other times I have a big pot of jello. The best answer I can give would be to quote Dr. John Christopher, one of my teachers and the man who gave us the recipe;


“In making any herbal preparation there is no replacement for good judgement, common sense and careful observations.”


Get as much hawthorn as you can into the formula, it will be a thick paste. If a person is in doubt, try a strong hawthorn berry tincture first. Personally, I believe the tincture is more medicinally powerful anyway.


More Questions and Answers


Reader's Question: Can the detox tea be used the following day or should different batches be made for each day?


SCHULZE: This should be made fresh each day.


Reader's Question: If fresh organic grapes can't be found what should be used?


SCHULZE: Use non-organic grapes, but wash and scrub them thoroughly. Organic, bottled grape juice can be used.


Reader's Question: If a terminal patient feels too weak to do just juice fasting, what should be done?


SCHULZE: Use a vegetarian, non-dairy, diet. The reason for the juices is that your body will spend less time digesting the juice and more time healing. Juices are an essential part of the program, so still drink as much juice as possible.

Appendix G: Answers from Dr. Christopher


For failing kidneys...


Dr. Christopher used to use parsley root, both as a compress and tea, for serious kidney problems. One woman had a sister with dropsy who was as bloated “as an infected pig.” She had only a few days to live. Parsley root was used as a fomentation and tea. It saved her life and she came out of the coma.


One woman had not urinated for 3 days. She was given a cup of juniper berry tea and went straight into the bathroom to urinate.


On curing serious asthma...


In Wyoming, two boys brought their father in at 2 A.M., wheezing and gasping. The father hadn't been able to lay down in bed for 20 years because of asthma. Dr. Christopher gave him one cup of peppermint tea; after ten minutes, he gave him one teaspoon of lobelia tincture. Every ten minutes, he got one teaspoon of lobelia tincture. The man started vomiting up green and black old mucus from his lungs. He kept vomiting for 3 hours.


Then. Dr. Christopher sent him home and he laid down in bed for the first time in 20 years. Later, he got a job as a gardener and never had an asthma attack again.


On mullein for glandular problems...


Dr. Christopher's favorite for glandular problems was a formula of three parts mullein to one part lobelia. One 5-year old boy had crushed testicles from an accident, and they had split open. Doctors were going to castrate. The parents used a fomentation of lobelia and mullein. Within days, the testicles were back to normal size and the scrotum rejoined.


Dr. Christopher also used mullein for bleeding bowels. One man was bleeding from his bowels so much, he needed blood transfusions. Dr. Christopher gave the man one ounce mullein in 1 cup of whole milk, telling him to heat the milk with the mullein till almost boiling. The man had three cups a day for 3 days, then one cup a day for 3 days. The bleeding stopped and the man was healed. A reader tried this and it works. The milk sticks to the colon walls and holds the mullein there so it can heal.


On using plantain leaf for blood poisoning...


A man came in to see Dr. Christopher with his arm fully swollen from an infected wound. He had cut his hand open with a chisel. Dr. Christopher used a plantain poultice over the wound, kept it moist and, in a few days, the arm was healed. A friend of this same man had a similar wound, went to the medical doctor, and had his arm amputated.


A woman cut her foot open on a seashell and her leg swelled to twice its size. She passed out from the pain. Again, a plantain poultice healed the foot. Plantain is also great for neutralizing poisons from bee stings.


A man had lockjaw from infection. Dr. Christopher used lobelia tincture, 4 drops on the lips, and the jaw was unlocked. Then he used a plantain poultice and the poisons were drawn out from a wound caused by a rusty nail.


On how to cure gangrene...


To cure gangrene. Dr. Christopher had patients make gallons of marshmallow tea. He had the person soak their leg or affected area in it for 30 minutes, having added one tablespoon of cayenne pepper to the tea that was being used for soaking. For 5 minutes, the patient put their leg in ice cold water, then back to the marshmallow tea for 30 minutes, and then continue to alternate. When the pain stopped, they used marshmallow tea as a fomentation.


A 98-year old man had bed sores for months. He had been brought home from the hospital to die. He had gangrene in both feet and ankles and doctors could not operate because of his advanced age. Dr. Christopher used the marshmallow tea soak and, also, slippery elm poultices. In 10 days, the man was standing in the living room, completely healed.


Using comfrey to heal dangerous burns...


Dr. Christopher's famous formula for healing burns was equal parts honey, wheat germ oil, and comfrey.


A couple brought in a boy with bandaged hands. He and his friend had been playing with matches and the resulting fire had roasted their hands. Doctors said either amputate or have skin grafts. The skin grafts would leave the hands as useless claws.


Dr. Christopher told the first boy's parents to use honey, wheat germ oil, and comfrey as a paste; apply it over the entire area and pull it off as it dries, but apply more. In months, the boy's hands healed and as good as new.


The other boy, who went to the hospital, had hands that became claws. He always wore gloves and became a recluse.


In another case, an engine block fell and crushed the pelvis 8-year old girl. The parents used comfrey poultices on the entire and she was healed. Comfrey also caused almost overnight healing on little girl who fell and split her head open on a stone fireplace. Comfrey paste not only heals, but causes bleeding to stop immediately.


Cayenne for massive bleeding...


A boy had accidentally shot his brother in the abdominal cavity. The bullet severed the spine and cut through the lungs and intestines.


A neighbor gave a tablespoon of cayenne to the boy. By the time she called the ambulance and sheriff, the bleeding had stopped. When the boy went into surgery, the doctor said it was one of the cleanest wounds and operations he had ever seen. Doctors said the boy would be paralyzed from the waist down. The mother gave the boy nerve formulas and the boy was completely healed. [Editor: See the chapter on nerve: degeneration for Dr. Schulze's nerve formulas.]


Generating bones and nerves...


For this, Dr. Christopher used his famous B, F, and C formula, which is given in the chapter on nerve regeneration. Dr. Christopher originally formulated this for a girl who had horrible dermatitis over 95 percent of her body and wanted to commit suicide. In three days of taking the formula internally and as a poultice, the girl was healed.


I have seen this formula reset a bone that was improperly set years before. It actually softened the bad section of bone, then reknitted it. In another case, it reknitted the bones of a smashed kneecap. I saw is for myself.


Using oak bark to heal gums...


Even when dentists are ready to pull all the teeth in cases of advanced pyorrhea, oak bark powder placed against the gums can brighten and heal them saving the teeth. One woman avoided dentures and kept all her teeth by following this advice.


On the power of slippery elm...


One boy was emaciated from chest to feet. He was sent home from the hospital, dying from dehydration and malnutrition. He could not assimilate any food and could not even drink water without vomiting. His hip bone was sticking through his flesh and he had bed sores on his back where his spine was sticking out.


Dr. Christopher used a gruel of slippery elm and water, a half a teaspoon at a time. He also used slippy elm as a poultice one inch thick on the spine, and on the hip area. Hot wet towels were placed over the paste to keep it moist. In a matter of months, the skin had healed, the boy had filled out, gained weight, and was playing in the yard.


Also remember that in cases of extreme emaciation and inability to assimilate, Dr. Christopher fed the patient through the skin with alternating massages with olive oil for two days, then wheat germ oil for two days, then castor oil for two days, then repeat. People have done this on their scalp and actually regrown hair.


For deafness and hearing loss.


Dr. Christopher used his B and B tincture in the ear, washing out the ear once a week with water mixed with some vinegar. He cured cases of total deafness by doing this.


For blindness...


For this. Dr. Christopher used his famous B and B tincture, which is given in the chapter on nerve regeneration. In one case, a young totally blind boy was given the eyewash formula (given in the eye chapter), plus the B and B tincture for the optic nerve, and months later, Dr. Christopher saw the boy chasing colored marbles across the floor.



Curing Deathly Ill Pets



“My number one rule of pet health: avoid veterinarians. They are worse than medical doctors.”


SCHULZE: The first thing I would tell people is that, after almost two decades of practice, I think half of my patients have had me treat their pets. I mean, I have treated a lot of dogs, cats and horses, even a goat or two.


BISER: Were they really sick?


SCHULZE: Some of them were dying. The vets wanted to put them to sleep immediately. Some of them just had long term chronic ailments.


In fact, with some of my patients, I saw their pets first and only after their pets had some kind of healing or miracle did the people actually become my patients. I actually got patients from treating pets first.


Just as a kind of a funny side-note, I used to often get complaints from my patients because my stethoscope had animal hair on it. And sometimes my office looked like Dr. Doolittle's. I remember once sitting with a patient and hearing all this banging in the waiting room; I went out to find a patient with a goat. It was on its back with bloat, a digestive problem, which was killing it. I'll talk about that later. Another patient got mad because I took the goat first. My rule was emergency first — even if the patients are not human. Some people had a hard time with that. I did see a lot of animals.


What I am going to call General Rule #1 (people are going to see the analogy between this and what we have done with the Save-Your-Life Collection) is to avoid veterinarians like the plague just like they would medical doctors.


My experience with vets is that they are even worse than medical doctors. Generally they are more conservative with their medical opinions and I think it is mainly because they do not have any competition. Medical doctors have to put up with the scrutiny of everybody from the federal government to the FDA to the constant pressure of alternative medicines. So medical doctors have to be more updated and more yielding to patient's desires.


We just go in to vets and say “What do you think Doc — do what you gotta do”. The animal can't talk and the vets... I find that, vs. medical doctors, vets are much more conservative; they lean toward medical intervention of cutting, drugging and poisoning, so I look at them as a much greater threat to a pets life than a medical doctor is to a human's life. So that is the first thing I think people need to know: avoid veterinarians.


BISER: We know this woman whose dog is infested with fleas every year and the vet has her dog on dangerous steroids, rather than get rid of the cause — which is that the house has never been sanitized — the fleas have never been killed. Now the dog is losing patches of skin. It's got colitis and is going blind.


SCHULZE: It will have cancer, it will be dead, but the lady won't have her house disturbed because the vet never said anything.


BISER: The vet even sells things that would kill the fleas in the carpet, but he never told the woman about it. The woman told us “I hope the vet doesn't put the dog back on hormones.”


SCHULZE: Vet procedures and methods of treatments, most of them are from the Stone Age. Very little of them have any testing and the bottom line is that the pet can't talk or complain about how they feel.


My rule is that if you ever take your dog to a vet, NEVER leave them alone with a vet. Never leave them overnight. My God, you don't know what is done. You know, the rule — General Rule #1 — avoid veterinarians like the plague even more than you would a medical doctor.


The positive side to that is that people can treat their pets the same way, with the same methods, the same treatments, and the same herbs they use on themselves.


A pet gets cut, you put some anti-infection herbs on it. If it's got some internal problems, stuff some garlic down its throat. It needs more nutrition, then get out the super foods. Whatever you are going to do, treat it like you would treat yourself.


You'll probably keep it alive and save it better than if you were to walk into a veterinarian's office. We always talked about the danger of going to a hospital or a doctor. Well, I think it is much worse to go to a vet.


The second part of this is that the dogs or the cats do not pay the bills. You do, so the vet's priority is to keep a happy customer, not necessarily a happy pet. If they think you can't handle it, they will make a decision that is against the pet's health and welfare but for you, because they want to keep you — the person who is paying.


A classic example is the one you just told me about. Instead of upsetting this person and saying — “Well, look, you need to move the furniture out of your house for a week and put boric acid down or call Flea Busters or whatever — yeah, we will give the dog or cat steroids and kill it.” This is a classic.


The ultimate, extreme end to this is when the vet thinks you can't handle it, so they say, “You know we need to put the animal to sleep.” Really? That is a nice way to say “murder.” What they are going to do is inject lethal poison into the pet's blood stream and murder it. My experience has been that they do that, not because the last ray of hope is gone for that animal...


...they do it because they think you'll get too upset if the dog has bloody diarrhea once or if it vomits blood or if the cancer tumor spreads a little bit. The bottom line is that, I hope in the last five years of my life that if I hit some bumps, people don't say “Oh well, look, put Ol' Dr Schulze to sleep, just inject some lethal poison into his blood streams.”


“The vets are the biggest killers of animals. I think if we took a look at what is the greatest risk, what is the number one cause of deaths in animals, it is probably veterinarians killing them.”


SCHULZE: So stay out of the vet's office.


General Rule #2 (and I only have two) is that most animals get sick because of the way we take care of them. We are doing something wrong.


“Not enough exercise kills animals. Most animals get sick because they just don't get outside enough; they are too cooped up. They don't get fresh air.”


BISER: I just heard this morning, Richard, that this groomer we took the dogs to goes to a lot of houses where the dogs never go outside. I have never heard of this in my life. They put them down in the basement. They have paper on the floor, the dog pees and poops, then they pick it up, bleach the floor, put new paper down, but the dog never goes out — ever.


SCHULZE: I had a patient whose dog was dying. It had never in its life been out of the house; they used diapers (the kind you would buy for adults with incontinence) for the dog.


They would put those on the floor, diapers and bed pads, and that's where the dog peed and pooped its whole life.


That dog got very ill and the vets couldn't save it; the only thing I suggested was to let it outside, which caused great fear in them, but they finally did it, and it recovered. From just getting outside.


This is one of the biggest ways we kill pets. I mean, get your dogs outside and let them run; if you don't have a yard, take them to the park, take them anywhere, take them to a parking lot at K-Mart, but get them outside — they need the fresh air.


You know, these are animals. They run, they jump. The fastest way to make your animal sick is to keep it cooped up.


BISER: Or don't exercise it enough.


SCHULZE: That's right.


BISER: You walk it around a small block and you think you've walked it.


SCHULZE: Yes, exactly. Because you are sick and unhealthy, you make your dog be sick and unhealthy; if you can't run fast, you can't make your dog do that.


Get the animals out. Get them fresh air. Even what Dr. Christopher said about getting rid of the static electricity in your body goes for animals; let the animals touch the planet. I think the biggest physical and emotional healing for any animal is to get them outside.


BISER: You are saying a lot of patients didn't know that?


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely. Especially since many people who have animals live in big cities. The majority of the people in the United States live in big cities, and in big cities, there are dogs and cats that live on the 37th floor of an apartment building. They only thing they touch is a nylon carpet. The only air they breathe comes out of an air conditioner. This will shorten a pet's life. They get a lot more diseases and it effects their sanity.


You will find that animals start going nuts. I mean cats need to chase butterflies and shadows of leaves and dogs need to get out and bark and bite and run around. That is the fastest way to kill larger animals: put them in pens, which is one of the main things that is done.


“Don't try to make your dog or cat into a vegetarian. They are genetically carnivores.”


SCHULZE: The first error I think of is exercise and the second one is food. Granted, when we talk about dogs and cats, they really aren't wild animals anymore. They are somewhere in-between wild and domesticated. But, we still need to follow as closely as we can, what would be the natural order for their exercise and food program, the same way we do for ourselves.


One of the ways we got into our health crisis as humans is by losing sight of our natural medicine and our natural foods: the plants that grow outside.


We have done that with animals. We have tried to domesticate them. The first thing you have to look at is that, if we are talking about dogs and cats, we are talking about carnivores.


Carnivores have a very short digestive tract. The fastest way to kill a carnivore is to feed them people food. Dogs and cats get the scraps; the owners think it is cute and they laugh and the animals end up with digestive problems, cancer, gas, worms, and parasites throughout their bodies.


Even if you buy professional foods, a lot of them are still horrible because many of them are ground-up animals that have been fed other ground-up animals; that's the way the Mad Cow disease was first seen in dogs.


The dogs had been fed food which was called animal by-products (everybody has to look out for that term — animal by-products) which, many times, means animals like cows that have eaten other cows that have eaten other cows; even in chicken feed now they have other chickens and this has caused disease to run rampant through these animals. Then people give their dogs or cats by-products from these animals.


I think the first thing we have to look at is their food program. They are carnivores; they do need to eat meat. Don't try to turn animals into vegetarians. I don't think that is a good idea.


The normal diet for a carnivore in the wild is basically small animals, rodents, reptiles, even insects.


BISER: Richard, I have seen veterinarians recommend one particular dog food. The first ingredient is corn, second ingredient is wheat. Dogs don't forage for corn or oats.


SCHULZE: That is why we have to go back and ask “What is natural here?” You look at most dog food and it looks good for us. It is a grain vegetable array, avocados, it goes on and on. It looks like pretty good stuff. This is a big problem.


The animals, especially dogs and cats, being carnivores, have quick, very high-acid, short digestive tracts. The biggest problem is we them up with grains and things that are really for herbivores which cause all types of digestive problems, fermentation, and stool problems with these animals. Their diet generally, naturally, is one of raw meat. I think another thing is that carnivores in nature always fast.


You watch carnivores in nature and they don't eat three meals a day. When they eat, they pig out — especially the cats. Look at lions--wild dogs. They pig out, they eat a lot of food, and then rest for a day or two.


So, not only getting the diet straight with dogs and cats, but I found that it is really helpful to fast them once in a while. Shut a dog or cat off from food for a day, or even a half of day. That rests their digestive tract. One of the problems with the food of dogs and cats is that, not only do we give them people food instead of animal food, but we feed them too much. We over feed them and we feed them too often. Most carnivores need to eat and rest.


“Make your own pet food with super nutritious foods. Don't feed them commercial products.”


BISER: What does this boil down to in practical suggestions?


SCHULZE: Well, I think that people should make their own dog and cat food. I know I have seen you do that Sam, and I think that is the best thing. It is probably cheaper in the long run and for most pets you can even buy meat scraps. You can feed them some raw and some cooked.


BISER: Actually, some of the meats that are cheaper (because they fattier) are better for dogs.


SCHULZE: Absolutely; we have to remember again, they are carnivores. They have very short digestive tracts. You can give them a high fat diet and they are not going to sit down and have a heart attack like we will. They process fat and cholesterol very differently. It goes through them very quickly. With us, it builds up in our arteries and our liver and kills us, but with them it won't. So absolutely, they can eat that kind of meat.


BISER: I have seen people, thinking that they are making the dog healthy, put them on vegetable diets, a lot of grain. Even though they make it themselves, the dog ends up run down, exhausted, with dry skin.


SCHULZE: I see that in California a lot. Many of my patients have tried to make carnivore animals into vegetarians.


BISER: That is a heck of a genetic change in one generation.


SCHULZE: If you do that, maybe over twenty or thirty generations, you could probably accomplish it to some degree.


BISER: Although a high proportion of your pets would die off in the evolutionary selection process.


SCHULZE: We need to look at the basics and that is the diet.


BISER: Ok, how often per day should they feed them, or does that depend on the breed?


SCHULZE: Well, it does depend on the breed and their amount of domestication. Some dogs or cats you'll look at and say, “Well, they haven't changed much in thirty or forty generations.”


An example would be cats: you look at some cats and they want to be outside, they want to eat a rat and leave it's head on your doorstep. You look at other cats and they want to be a little puffy, furry ball and lie under the dresser or on the television all day.


BISER: Are you saying they shouldn't go so far as cutting the feeding frequency?


SCHULZE: You have to take that into consideration. If your cat is an old house, sleepy, television cat and it has been fed three meals a day, you can't change it drastically. It wouldn't hurt to skip a day or a meal once in a while. If it is an outside cat, it is probably doing that naturally itself.


The same with dogs. If dogs are outside a lot, and they are very active, it’s okay to go ahead and not feed them for a day.


BISER: The dogs will whine and complain...


SCHULZE: They will at first, then they will go about their way; the next day, you might want to feed them a little bit more. They will scarf it down and swallow it without chewing.


“Feeding a dog too frequently can weaken its survival instinct, its will to fight and live.”


BISER: What you are saying is that this will even work on sick dogs, it makes them feel better?


SCHULZE: Yes it will. The only animals you don't want to fast are grazing animals like horses (we will talk about that in a few minutes). But, fasting is really good for carnivores. It can really perk them up, really wake them up. You know the great differences I have seen is when people, just one day a week or one day a month, gave their dog or cat less food or gave it no food at all. It makes them want to survive more because this is the way it is in nature. It is survival.


BISER: O.K. so you are saying it doesn't hurt the dog at all.


SCHULZE: No, it brings up some survival mechanisms.


BISER: Which are hormones and the will to live...


SCHULZE: Otherwise, their mouths are at the other end of the kitchen conveyor belt that we have built... there is no survival instinct needed. We are just pumping food into them.


BISER: You are actually weakening their will to live, to fight?


SCHULZE: Absolutely! By not feeding them and fasting them a day, you are waking up that natural survival mechanism. It strengthens them.


“The vet wanted to put the arthritic dog to sleep. But two weeks after following my suggestions, it was humping another dog.”


BISER: So you are talking sick dogs, too?


SCHULZE: Yeah, and I've got a couple dog and cat stories I could go into...Okay.


The first one I remember is a woman I had never seen before she came walking up the sidewalk to my first clinic, carrying a dog that was absolutely slumped. It looked like it had been shot; it looked dead. This was some kind of a collie; it weighed about eighty pounds I thought, “Why is this woman bringing a dead dog into my clinic?”


She was crying; she was a lead actress on a soap opera (I actually remember recognizing her) because she had done a lot of commercials on television as well.


She was hysterically crying. I asked what was wrong and she said “I am so and so, and I just went to the vet; my dog is fifteen years old and the vet said he wanted to put my dog to sleep.” I asked what was wrong and she said that her dog had arthritis which had gotten so bad he didn't even want to move anymore. He was in so much pain.


Of course the vet’s answer to this was to kill it and I thought that there are a lot of things I could think of to do. I have had a lot of patients with arthritis. So we started a program; there are a lot of people out there who have older dogs with arthritis.


Think about it: if we had a person, we would think about some hot and cold applications. Well, you can do that to do a dog; you can put an ice pack on a dog's hip or a dog's spine. Dogs love it. You can give them a hot and cold bath; dogs love the attention.


Also, we would think of a massage if it were a person. Why not get on that dog and massage those joints and get some blood in there? Also, we have pain herbs. I mean a little pain relief for the dog could just give it enough relaxation to reduce the inflammation. Hey, I have had patients that, when the vet's said to kill their dog or cat, all they did was give their dog or cat aspirin and the animal got better.


I am not necessarily suggesting aspirin, but I would rather take aspirin than be killed.


BISER: Pain herbs like what?


SCHULZE: I think one of the best one is valerian; in fact, in Germany, you will find that veterinary medicine is almost purely herbal, especially with horses, but throughout the animal kingdom. They use valerian, hops are a great sedative and pain herbs for pets, also.


“I have always found that herbs work better for pets than for humans, because animals live closer to nature.”


SCHULZE: They are more in tune with nature; they haven't had as many drugs and for some reason I find that pets respond to herbs even faster than people do. So the pain and relaxing herbs work really well and also, if you have an old dog, put him on a lighter diet.


If they have arthritis, they might be a little overweight, which hurts the joints, so lighten their food up a little bit, maybe even fast them. That will wake them up a little bit. That will bring them around from the dead.


But, the funny thing was that this lady started doing some hot and cold, some massage, she got the pain herbs out, I think she even used a couple of aspirin, she lightened his diet; in a couple of weeks sue called me to complain that her dog was mounting the neighbor's dog.


I'll never forget that. I said, “Don't worry about it.” I mean, I didn't know what to do. This was a dog the vet was going to kill!


If I had a buck for every time I heard that the vet wanted to kill; the animal and the patient did barely anything and the next we knew the animal is running around... animals respond quickly, come back to life so quickly. I have seen this so many times.


“Just a side note here: if you want to really make your animals sick, send them to a kennel.”


SCHULZE: I think that if I look at the amount of cats and dogs that have come to my clinic because they were sick I would say that for over half of them, it was after a stay in the kennel. This breaks down into a couple of things.


I think first of all, animals don't have the same sense of reason that we do. You drop them off at a kennel, they think they are going to become pet food. I think it is the most depressing thing that you can do to an animal.


BISER: We have found locally, that there are people (they are not easy to find) who will take care of pets for about the same cost as a kennel.


SCHULZE: That is what I always suggest.


Most people nowadays, they don't want to leave their house alone so they get a house sitter anyway. Well, get the house sitter to watch the pets and feed them a few times a day. I guarantee you, people will say, “Oh won't it be lonely?” Yeah, sure it is going to be lonely but I guarantee you that your pet would rather sleep it its bed, at home, not even getting its meals on a regular basis, than be put into a kennel.


The second thing is the diseases in kennels. Now we might get letters from people that have alternative kennels, but I rarely see them. They are usually filthy places. Your dog is going to be exposed to the other excrement of other dogs.


Everything isn't sterilized the way it should be. Let's face it, you walk into a kennel and it looks like a concentration camp from the 1940's. They are horrible places. They smell like dog vomit and dog poop; almost every time that I remember seeing a really sick pet, I ask what has it done in the last month and the owners say, “Well, we went out of town on holiday and we had to put the dog or the cat in the kennel.”


In California, we are having a big problem with feline AIDS and it is being spread in the kennels. I have treated a lot of cats with feline AIDS. Now that the vets have said that it is spreading in kennels, it is just a bad idea to put an animal there.


I look at a kennel like a hospital. It's a bad place to go, there is a lot of disease, so stay out of there. I just wanted to make that warning: I think it is a real bad idea. Take the pet to a relative's house, take it with you on vacation, whatever, but keep it out of the kennel.


Just some general things, as we finish carnivores, one of the biggest things that happens to animals is that they get worms. They are exposed to a lot of parasites. Dogs even sometimes sniff or eat their own fecal matter or other dogs' fecal matter. They are exposed to a lot of worms.


The best way to worm your animal is with garlic. Garlic is the classic wormer. I have used garlic with all my patient's pets and with my own pets and never had a problem; it works better than any of the toxic material or deadly poison given by the vets.


“Garlic is a tonic for tired animals.”


BISER: We noticed with our dog, Jimmy, the Scottish Terrier, that it acts like a tonic for him. He is an older dog, a little sluggish.




BISER: Giving him garlic almost seems like a vitamin pill for the dogs.


SCHULZE: It absolutely is. In fact, if you go into pet foods stores todays: their foods include garlic or their supplements include garlic.


You must remember that garlic, first and foremost, is probably a strength builder. It has been used from the slaves to build the pyramids to the Spartan warriors of Greece to the Roman warriors. When they thought about building strength, it wasn't Siberian ginseng, it was garlic.


BISER: Raw garlic though?


SCHULZE: That's right, raw garlic — everybody thought of garlic to build strength. Second to that, it works as an antibiotic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and is one of the few things that not only kills parasites, but expels them from the body.


BISER: Use with dogs or cats is fine?


SCHULZE: Oh, it is great. The way that you do it, in case anybody doesn't know, is that you just cut a piece of a fresh clove of garlic, about the size your animal could swallow whole, because that is what they are going to do. Just just open their mouth, put the clove on their tongue, shove it with your finger back as far as you can get it into their mouth, hold their mouth shut, and pet their neck in a downward fashion. They can't help but swallow it.


BISER: Now some dogs are very touchy; they will not let you do that. Do we need to put it into a little bit of meat?


SCHULZE: That is the second way to do it; chop it up real fine and mix it with their favorite food. I can't remember a case where we could not get garlic down an animal in one of those two ways.


We hear the stories that we are supposed to chew two hundred times? Dogs and cats eat so fast, they don't chew. I mean they rip and swallow, and the garlic will not bother them. You will notice the smell of garlic on them. It will expel parasites, it will give them strength.


What I suggest with people, is once a month, fast the dog or cat for a day, then they can either use the garlic before they fast it, or after they fast it. The day before or the day after. Then get two or three servings of garlic down the animal.


BISER: Oh. Especially when they are sick?


SCHULZE: Yeah, some people say, “Don't irritate its digestive tract.” You can't irritate a dog or cat's digestive tract.


BISER: Well, what about this dog I told you about that has colitis?


SCHULZE: That would be an extreme example. If it already has something that hurt it's digestive tract and it's got inflammation or irritation, then easy on the amount of garlic. But, generally, the colitis is probably caused by a long history of improper food, improper exercise and maybe even drugs. Those are quite hard on animals' digestive tracts.


BISER: Could they do that slippery elm mixed with water into a gruel.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Remember the general rule is: when in doubt with your animal, do exactly the same herbal...


BISER: That you would in a human. I would use slippery elm. SCHULZE: That's right — that is the best thing


BISER: Or aloe?


SCHULZE: That's right. Aloe vera you can cut up (the gel) and put it into their food.


BISER: How about licorice?


SCHULZE: Licorice and slippery elm are the best soothers and healers for the digestive tract.


BISER: Have you ever used the intestinal cleansing formula in the animals to make their bowels move?


SCHULZE: No, the intestinal formula No.l is a rare one to use with carnivores, but the intestinal No. 2 formula would be very good. It would be very soothing and cleansing to their digestive tract. It would even coagulate their poop; it is good for poisoning and diarrhea.


You know what is really unfortunate is that a lot of people who live in a more rural area or even an area of the city where they have grass, put out poisons to kill gophers and other rodents.


Many of those poisons are strychnine and if your dog gets into it there is nobody that is going to keep it alive, I guarantee that. By the time you get it to the vet, the vet is going to say that there is nothing he can do. I have seen dogs die because of strychnine poisoning. The antidote to that is the intestinal formula No.2.


Unfortunately, I hate to bring this up, but it happens in the city, you have a lot of angry, sick people that poison animals, too.


BISER: So, even if they don't have the formula, people should keep charcoal on hand.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. Charcoal draws the poisons out of the digestive tract. Since animals, especially the carnivores, have a very quick digestive tract, they absorb and assimilate things very quickly.


BISER: Which can be bad.


SCHULZE: Yeah, so you gotta move fast in these situations. If you see someone with a gopher or mole problem and they have been poisoning them, you probably want to talk to that person and suggest other ways that they handle their gopher problem.


What they don't realize is that they put that poison into the ground, it kills the gopher, but then your dog or cat or the wild birds are going to eat that. One thing about strychnine and poisons like that is that they don't break down. In other words, the animal that eats the gopher dies, the animals that eat the dead animal dies, and when the poop goes into the water, the fish die.


BISER: A pet owner should always have on hand powdered charcoal.


SCHULZE: That's right. Look out if all of a sudden their pet is feeling weird or is looking weird.


Animals tell you real quickly when they are not well. If you are suspect that they either have some type of food poisoning or other type of poisoning, stop the food, get some garlic down them, get some charcoal down them, some intestinal formula No.2 and get them cleaned out.


I have seen some animals survive from a strychnine poisoning when they have used charcoal or the intestinal formula #2.


BISER: After their vet said they were gone?


SCHULZE: Oh absolutely. I have never seen vets really do anything at that point cause it is such a lethal poison. But remember, charcoal will absorb anything.


“How to prepare a dog or cat meal.”


BISER: Now, to wrap up a loose end...How should they prepare a dog or cat meal? What should they do when they go to the store to get the right things?


SCHULZE: I think one of the best things to do is to take a look at your meat as far as whether it has any steroids in it. We talked earlier about the problems with steroids. Well, try to stay away from commercial grade. You can probably find some non-commercial grade; most cities have it now, or they say no steroids or whatever.


Try to find your healthiest, cleanest meat, it doesn't have to be prime cuts, you can get the scraps.


A lot of times, if you talk to your butcher, become friendly with, him, even if it is super market, they will give you bags of stuff that they don't sell for people but works good for animals. If your animal is very domesticated, which many breeds are, I'd suggest that it is lightly cooked or boiled. If your dog is a really wild one, it can eat raw meat, too.


Shocking animals is not a good idea. Just start this as a supplementation and then work it up from there.


BISER: What would you mix it with for their meal?


SCHULZE: Well, a lot of people mix it with nothing. Other people do mix it with some grains; rice seems to be a real popular one.


BISER: Rice and barley seem to be the best of dog grains.


SCHULZE: Yes, they are.


BISER: Dogs and cats?


SCHULZE: Yes, absolutely. Dogs tend to like it. Basically, you can cook it or lightly cook it, boil it; but again, remember, the steady diet of cats and dogs in nature is a mono diet of animal. Occasionally you will see them grazing on grass, but it is a mono-diet.


BISER: Is it okay to add wheat germ oil or things like that?


SCHULZE: Sure. In fact, you know the best things are garlic, and then your super type foods. Anything that you are taking, that you are doing for your nutrition, get animals on it, too.


Believe me, animals love it and that's the biggest way I have seen them boost it. I mean I have worked with a lot of cats with AIDS, you name the carnivore dogs and cats and their problems, but the main things to remember are the super nutritional supplements that they can assimilate. Now there is a good source of vitamins and minerals that you can blast their system with, and this is the superfood mixture you use yourself. You can prepare it at home.


BISER: So you definitely don't recommend the pellet diet?


SCHULZE: No, not at all. Then getting some garlic into them, taking a look at the food, and getting them outside. In 99% of the cases, that will take care of them.


“Taking care of your cat.”


BISER: You haven't mentioned a cat story...


SCHULZE: Okay, the two main things that I see with cats is urinary tract infections (a lot of cystitis, inflammation of the urinary tract) and also stones (kidney stones).


First of all, they have linked it to preservatives put into the cat food, like nitrites. They are loaded with those. This is the problem.


Again, it goes back to our basics; it's either the animal didn't get enough exercise or it is what we are feeding it. Those are really feeding problems with a cat. I would have thousands of those.


The first thing you have to do is get the right food going into the animal. Stop all commercial food and get immediately on your own food program.


Get it on some super nutrition and of course garlic is the greatest antibiotic for the urinary tract. It stops the infection that the cat probably has and then go to your urinary tract herbs.


Dogs and cats will also drink herb tea. If you have a lot of urinary tract inflammation with a cat, you can get it into the marshmallow type tea.


If you want to get it to pee more, used your diuretic herbs like uva ursi. If it's only a little infection, you can use chopped-up juniper berries. You can have them eat the raw herb. You know, I find that cats like it. If they don't, mix a little bit of catnip in it. Cats love catnip and you can mix catnip in with any dried herb powder and they will go for it.


BISER: So marshmallow root is for inflammation?


SCHULZE: It is a good soother for the urinary tract. If you want them to pee more, go to the uva ursi.


BISER: What about parsley? Will parsley root work for them?


SCHULZE: Sure. Parsley root and leaf will make them pee more and it’s good for the infection. Just go right with all the same herbal treatments that you would for a person.


The other thing I have seen a lot of recently is more immune system disorders.


BISER: Leukemia?


SCHULZE: like the feline AIDS, there is a lot of it going around. Also, what we might call, in a human, like a post viral fatigue syndrome or….


BISER: Inflamed musculature?


SCHULZE: Yes, Epstein-Barr, that type of thing. We are seeing a lot with cats. Very depressed immune systems and diseases based on that. One of the greatest immune boosters outside of garlic is echinacea, but there is a warning that goes with it...


BISER: Okay...


SCHULZE: My first experience with giving animals echinacea was with a cat who flipped and flopped and foamed at the mouth. It screamed for fifteen minutes while I tried to convince the lady I did not kill her cat.


“Echinacea is a great one for dogs and cats, but you have to dilute it.”


SCHULZE: It makes them foam at the mouth, which the owners don’t understand and it freaks them out. Then you let your foaming at the mouth animal outside and worry the neighbors, too. So...


BISER: Dilute it how much?


SCHULZE: Take your good echinacea and dilute it about four parts water to one part echinacea. If you have to make it a little candyish, you can even add a little maple syrup to it.


BISER: Do you use it as drinking water or do you squirt it down them throats?


SCHULZE: You squirt it right into their mouth. You take dropperfulls and you squirt it into their mouth.


BISER: How many dropperfulls?


SCHULZE: Just figure the dosage based on weight. Dilute it down so they can tolerate it and then try to get the same amount you'd give to a human, but based on the same weight...


Congestive heart failure in a dog cured with cayenne pepper and homemade hawthorn syrup.


BISER: Take into account your dilution?


SCHULZE: Absolutely. I had a dog that had congestive heart failure. His heart was swollen. We fixed it with capsules of cayenne pepper.


BISER: Putting it into ground beef or something?


SCHULZE: No, we just put the capsules right down its throat. We made cayenne capsules.


Remember, too, if people say “Well, my dog or cat is small — where can I get small capsules?” Usually, you can get them at the pharmacy and you can definitely get them at your veterinarian.


Veterinarians carry capsules for the different sizes of animals that they deal with and so if you have a cat or dog veterinarian, they will have little tiny capsules. If you go to a horse veterinarian, they will have capsules three inches long and as big around as three fingers put together.


So anyway, the vet suggested we put it down. It was starting to have secondary diseases because it couldn't move and was having a hard time breathing; it was panting and it was very sick.


We reduced it's diet in fat tremendously. Remember that dogs assimilate fat the same way we do; when anybody has congestive heart failure, even a dog, reduce it's fat, reduce it's food. We fasted it and pumped it with garlic, which thins the blood.


BISER: How much garlic did you give it?


SCHULZE: We gave it about three pills' worth a day (pills that were about the size appropriate for the dog, about a single 0 capsule size). We also gave the dog super spirulina type foods.


BISER: And what kind of cayenne?


SCHULZE: Your hot cayenne is fine and you can even...


BISER: You mean that was the hot, hot cayenne?


SCHULZE: Absolutely, capsulated, and put it right down their throat.


BISER: Now was that with food or on an empty stomach?


SCHULZE: Both, but it doesn't matter as much with a carnivore, because their digestive tract moves very quickly and it is very high in acid.


BISER: How much cayenne a day?


SCHULZE: Three times a day we did that and then three times a day with the hawthorn berry tonic. The dog didn't have a problem with hawthorn berry tonic; we just poured it into a bowl and the dog licked it right up. Dogs and cats, especially dogs, will go for sweet more. In thirty days, the dog was fine.


BISER: The disease was gone?


SCHULZE: Yes, we cut it's food intake in half and made its food more: natural, got it off the processed food. We had it on hawthorn, garlic and cayenne pepper three times a day and had it on the super foods. I have been trying not to say, “My Superfood.”


BISER: Well, they can buy the ingredients or your formula; it isn't the product name so much as it is the contents.


SCHULZE: Absolutely. With super food, the big thing we want to mention is that it is 50% nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a big one for dogs, cats and horses, any animal. It is high in B-vitamins.


It is a major tonic formula and that is why you see a lot of these supplements containing brewer's yeast and garlic. The problem is that the brewer's yeast that they use here is garbage yeast. It is bitter brewing yeast.


So the best yeast you can get is the same yeast that we have always talked about, that people would use for themselves as well as the same super nutritional foods like spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa, barley, wheat grass...


And then there is seaweeds. You know, animals love this stuff. You can take a teaspoon to a tablespoon of it.


What I make for animals a lot is a health ball; you can make it with ground turkey, for instance, and mix that up with the nutritional yeast and the super foods into a ball, add some chopped garlic into it and they will beg, they will dance for this stuff.


Have the refrigerator full of those and have that as something you would give your dog constantly as a treat. They are going to be getting turkey, half of it will be your super foods and chopped garlic and they love it. It is the greatest thing you can do and get into your pet, and that is what really builds these animals up.


BISER: So this was a dog with classical congestive heart failure?


SCHULZE: Yes, and we treated it the same way as we would a human.


I never set out to treat animals. My patients forced it upon me but I had no idea of how to treat animals, so all I did was to treat them like I would a human and low and behold it works. It is the same thing.


If you think about it, even though their anatomy and physiology are different, it is not alien. Dogs and cats have liver, intestines, they have hearts and those animals respond. The horror, if you think about it, is most of the testing of herbs around the world, has been done on animals.


In fact, the best statistics I have on how hawthorn will bind the heart cells, protect those cells and keep your heart working better, longer and more efficiently and even protect you from heart attacks, was all done on dogs in China.


The horrible torture that they did to the animals! We probably know more about how herbs work with animals as far as clinical testing than even people. Don't hesitate, just because you think the herbs are: for people; they probably have been clinically proven on animals.


What proportions to use when you make your own dog and cat food.


BISER: We talked about proportions. Let's say dogs, cats, they have meat, and the owners cook it up, they have some rice. What proportions of meat to rice, or meat to barley are used?


SCHULZE: I always like to go into the 75% meat range, 25% grains. If the dog or cat isn't used to it, or is used to more canned food, you can go more half and half. If it is a wilder animal, you can go more like 90% meat, ten grain. Seventy-five meat and twenty-five grain is a good average.


BISER: Okay, now I know that the owners themselves, or their vets, will say they are not getting their balance of nutrients the way they would get from a prepared commercial food and the dog will end up with malnutrition.


SCHULZE: You want a story? There is a major pet food manufacturing: company that I walk by once a week.


If you want to see a filthy, disgusting, rodent-filled, rat-filled, bug crawling, hell hole, you go to a place that is manufacturing animal food. Believe me, people say, “Gosh, I don't eat baloney, why?” Because baloney is made from the parts of the meat that they don't sell, like the esophagi and the testicles. What do you think they put into animal food? That is ten grades down from pepperoni. I mean, come on.


BISER: What you are saying is they call these “balanced pellets?”


SCHULZE: Oh Yes, these balanced pellets and these balanced diets...take at a look at the list of ingredients and then watch a national geographic special and tell me when was the last time you saw a wild dog or cat eating that kind of food?


BISER: Eating the pellets?


SCHULZE: Eating the pellets, or eating the ingredients of the pellets. It is horrifying when you start reading what this stuff is made out of. Get your animals off it...


BISER: So when you bad sick dogs, cats, or horses, you took them off commercial feeds?


SCHULZE: First rule: Change their food and change their movement. Get them outside, get them moving more...


BISER: Oh, so you never left them on the commercial foods that they were eating?




BISER: If you wanted to save them?


SCHULZE: Never, never; get them off that stuff. Absolutely, get them off that stuff immediately.


BISER: So if they are eating the meats and stuff, will they get enough minerals? Somebody told me that dogs chew bones. If you are just giving them meats, they are not getting bones.


SCHULZE: You can give dogs bones, because they have the ability to digest things we humans don't.


BISER: What about owners who say that their dog is a pedigree, that he is not used to it, that he will choke on the bone, that it will splinter?


SCHULZE: Go back to the nutritional adding, the sea vegetables. I found that most animals will eat dulse right out of the package. You put kelp, dulse, and the high minerals...


BISER: I have even seen bone meal sold with bone marrow in it.


SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely.


BISER: If they want to do that?


SCHULZE: Yes, sure. They love the sea vegetables and all the high mineral grasses and all that.


BISER: So that is how you can balance the meat?


SCHULZE: With every owner, I have made them make their own supplement with nutritional yeast, spirulina, chlorella, seaweeds...


BISER: And the dogs do better?


SCHULZE: Have a big bowl of that, feed it to their animal mixed into their food and you will never have to worry about them getting a good balance of nutrition. They will get more nutrition than they can use.


“Eliminating hairballs in cats.”


BISER: Richard, any more on cats?


SCHULZE: Another thing you see sometimes is hairballs, where cats have been licking and grooming themselves and get a big ball of hair in their digestive tract, then you can also do a purge. You can either do that with garlic or the appropriate amount of Intestinal Formula No.l.


We've used Intestinal Formula No.l and garlic to stimulate the digestive tract and breakdown and get rid of hairballs.


And the cats have had bowel movements that looked like coyones(?) because they were just twisted hair. Maybe they ate too many rodents or licked themselves, but they had a lot of hair.


It is hard to constipate a carnivore, but when they do get impacted it is very serious and you want to get the Intestinal No.1 right into them.


“How to cure a cat of leukemia.”


BISER: Now, have you had any cats with bad leukemia?


SCHULZE: Yes I have had cats with leukemia and I put it under that same category with the feline AIDS. It would also be the viruses that they get. In fact, I have been finding that one of the biggest categories of cat sickness has involved the immune system.


BISER: Have you been able to help those cats with severe leukemia?


SCHULZE: In fact, my wife Anisha did. Someone Anisha knew called and their cat had leukemia and had a lot of problems associated with it.


It had it for quite a while. Its immune system had broken down. It had vomited some blood and there was blood in its stool. It was anemic and couldn't keep its blood levels up. The vets said basically to kill it, murder it, put it out of its misery.


The first thing we did, I hate to sound like a broken record, but the first thing that we did was to get its blood levels up, especially with anemic leukemia patients. Now with patients (human) we would put them on red fruits and vegetables like beets and cherries, but that doesn't work well with animals so you put them on the super foods. Again, nutritional yeast is very high in iron, seaweed is very high in iron, your spirulina high in B12, high in iron, so you take your super food blend. Get any cat with leukemia on it immediately.


We got this cat on it immediately and saw it perk up in just a couple of days just from getting the extra nutrition.


BISER: What happened to the blood and all that?


SCHULZE: The blood tests started getting better right away. The veterinarian was open to it, and had been treating the animal with homeopathic methods. Now anyone who watches our videos knows my feeling about homeopathy...


BISER: It's not herbalism?


SCHULZE: No, homeopathy is not herbalism. It's an invisible energy dose. Very possibly some of the power of homeopathy is similar to Bach flower remedies, which means that the patient is taking something that they believe is going to work and is almost meditating or thinking consciously about this, like positive thinking.


Well, an animal doesn't work that away.


You are not going to give an animal a Bach flower remedy and they are going to be thinking “I'm going to have better self-esteem.”


It doesn't work and you will find that animals right away weed out what works and what doesn't. I have had things that may work on a psychological level don't work on a physical level. This cat had been treated with a lot of homeopathy and was getting no response at all.


BISER: So what happened, it started getting better?


SCHULZE: Within a week its blood levels were getting better. But, one of the main things, of course, is getting the blood levels up with, nutrition, then going after the actual leukemia with the blood cleansers and detoxifiers.


BISER: So you had used what is in the blood cleansers?


SCHULZE: All the blood cleansing herbs.


BISER: The same as you would with, a person, red clover...


SCHULZE: Red clover, chaparral, yellow dock, echinacea to boost the immune system. The same ones you would use, the same cancer type formulas like the detox for regeneration type herbs.


Of course they are horrible tasting and so you dilute them, you try to disguise the taste as much as you can. With a cat or a dog, use a plastic dropper. They bite on the glass sometimes and you don't want them to break it.


BISER: Good point.


SCHULZE: Yes, so get the plastic dropper, or a turkey baster, and then make your dilution and just open their mouth and say, “Hey, little pretty baby” and they come up, open their mouth and you just squirt it right down. It is so little liquid that they can't spit it out. They will make funny faces with their mouth, but dilute it down and try to flavor it so you don’t torture them.


BISER: Did the cat recover?


SCHULZE: Thirty days.


BISER: I mean a recovery?


SCHULZE: Oh yes, in thirty days its blood changed... Oh and here's the big thing, Anisha told me not to forget this part, it was a house cat, it never went outside, ever. The owner was afraid it would get lost or kidnapped or whatever. But Anisha got chicken-wire, took some of the backyard and fenced it off. Got that cat outside. It chased a butterfly first day and it was like it had a transformation.


You cannot take animals and make them live in houses. Imagine a person cooped up in a house. Between outside, building the blood, the blood cleansing herbs, some garlic, like I said the blood values changed in three to four days. Big changes in a week.


BISER: What did the vet say?


SCHULZE: The vet was just shocked and in fact, as a side note to this, I could have made probably more money in all my years in the clinic if I worked exclusively on animals. The results were that great.


BISER: The results were that good?


SCHULZE: I would have to turn away people with animals we had so many and I haven't even gotten to horses yet. I could have been just exclusively an alternative natural healing vet, easily.


“Curing the goat with colic.”


BISER: Hey, before I forget, the goat lying upside down with colic, what did you do for it?


SCHULZE: The goat with the bloat! Well the first thing is, this actually goes into grazers and herbivores, but we will cover it now.


The first thing you remember with herbivores is that any animal that has a digestive tract has gas. You will even see this in carnivores.


You fill them with your table scraps and you'll hear your dogs lying on their sides with a bloated bellies, in horrible pain, they can hardly breathe and sometimes you will even hear them pass gas and it will be these real high squeaky sounds. Or if you listen to their abdomen it will be bloated and you will hear these real high pressure squeaks inside their...


BISER: I had a dog that had bad colic. It's not like indigestion in people I don't think people understand how deadly it can be...


SCHULZE: No, in fact it can be lethal and so the first thing that I thought of with this goat was to massage its abdomen. You can do this with horses, also. You have to physically push the gas out of there. You just get into that abdomen.


Now if it is a little cat or dog you do it with your hand. If it is a goat, you can do it with your elbow. Watch it because you are going to get kicked, but you've got to get in and massage that abdomen and push that gas around. There is even exercise that we will get into with the horses because that is the big thing.


“How to keep horses healthy.”


SCHULZE: The main thing to remember is with horses you can put them right away into the same two categories that we put dogs and cats. Exercise and a food program. You can do this with any herbivores.


BISER: Okay.


SCHULZE: You know, there are millions of horses in this country and many people have horses in their backyard or they board horses or whatever.


The first thing with horses is that they are grazing animals, any herbivore, like a cow, like a goat, whatever, so these things could be used for anybody who has a sheep, a lamb, etc.


If it is a grazing animal, it walks around almost all day long, it runs around, it is outside; you take an animal like that and put it in a stall, and that is the fastest way you can to kill it. I don't mean that they are immediately dead, but it is the first way you cause disease with a horse.


A lot of people are going to say, “But I live in the city, I board my horse.” Well then make sure someone gets it outside everyday. The number one way you can hurt grazing animals is to coop them up. Thy need that exercise, they need to run...


BISER: Again, going back to the basic conditions of its existence...


SCHULZE: Absolutely.


BISER: In a natural state...


SCHULZE: Look at what they look like in the wild. Are they running in packs, jumping and kicking? They, in fact, need to kick and roll which they can't do in a stall. They need to do that to release the gas in their digestive tract. That's how they do it. They have to get out everyday and the biggest way to hurt them is by not allowing that.


The second thing comes right down to that food program again. I have looked at horse feeds, I mean one big company makes a horse supplement and it's got milk in it. First of all, horses are vegetarians, so when would they be nursing from a cow?


BISER: Right.


SCHULZE: In most of the nutritional supplements I have looked at, the vitamin and mineral supplements have fish meal. When is the last time you saw a horse standing by the side of a stream trying to bite a fish? I mean we are poisoning horses. You see the same type of thing in most grazing animal feeds. We are poisoning them again with animal food and dairy products.


BISER: It is not part of their diet.


SCHULZE: No, it is not part of their diet.


BISER: So people have got to look at that supplement and if there is any animal products in it, forget it.


SCHULZE: Absolutely, any type of fish or dairy is poison. In fact, if you get any type of meat into a horse you will probably kill it within twenty-four hours.


BISER: Do people do that?


SCHULZE: Well, it happens by accident. A lot of times in hay baling, horses will get a rat and you will see botulism go through a barn and kill a dozen horses in a day. They can't tolerate this, but the fish and dairy just makes them sick, slowly, over a long period of time.


Another mistake is, people will feed them a steady diet of grains and alfalfa which are too rich and too high in protein.


In other words, we give them just the good stuff. That is unnatural.


Those are good supplements, but you know, one of the best feeds for this type of animal is the
