Your Step-By-Step Guide

Step #1: Kick Your Excipient Habit

Excipients are non-nutrient substances used to ease the manufacturing process.

The worst excipients are flowing and anti-caking agents like magnesium stearate, maltodextrin (sugar), sodium caseinate (milk), silicon dioxide (sand/glass) and talcum powder (illegal in most countries) used to simplify flowing small grained, powdered material into capsules.

When products from Goji Berries, to salt, to powdered herbs are mechanically packaged into bottles, bags and boxes the powdered material is required to flow through a variety of hoses and capsule injectors. This process works easiest when product is dry and chalky.

Until June 2006, Yemiah and I ignored the excipient issue as all our products are excipient free. Then Dr. Bob Marshall challenged me to do some excipient research.

You can read over my excipient articles and here's the quick summary:

Research indicates excipients destroy T-Cells (immune system function) and block nutrient uptake.

After becoming aware of this, Yemiah and I went back to our small group of clients who seemed unresponsive to any experiments. In all cases, we identified they were using multiple excipient laced products.

Once these clients ceased taking their excipient laced products 100% became hyper-responsive to all the formal experiments we did. In other words, when they were using excipients no upgrades produced change. Once excipients were removed all upgrades, even the smallest, seemed to produce noticeable change.

If you have concern related to your immune system strength and speed of response or you seem to be doing everything right with no noticeable change, chances are excipients are a primary contributing factor.

After this experience in our client practice, I recommend your first step be Kicking Your Excipient Habit!

Step #1: Summary

At best excipients are non-nutrient substances which are fillers. In other words, you're paying for non-nutrient fluff.

At worst research suggests excipients destroy T-Cells (immune system function) and block nutrient uptake.

Because of the new fast mutating viruses - SARS, Bird Flu, Ebola, etc. - to me my best choice is to only use 100% Natural State, Whole, Raw Super Foods and nutrients. Anything else goes in my garden or trash. If you're concerned about your own peak longevity and immunity, you may be served to consider a similar approach.

Step #1: Action Plan

  1. Excipients fall under the trade secrets act, so may be legally omitted from labels, so you're best served to only do business with companies like Radical Health and Premier Research Labs which specifically state they are excipient free.
  2. If you're taking prescription meds, keep taking them and if they are tablets are caplets (hard pills without capsules) these are the worst of the worst. Tablets and caplets are worse as extreme heat and pressure are used to create these, which fuses material into rock hardness, which is usually indigestible. If you're taking prescription meds request your pharmacist switch to a powdered, encapsulated version if one exists. And partner with a health practitioner who knows how to assist you transitioning off meds onto Natural State alternatives. You may require a new practitioner.
  3. Enjoy Natural State, Nutrient Rich, Raw Super Foods which nourish your body past any requirements for remedials (drugs and drug like substances).

Step #2: Kicking Your Isolate Supplement Habit

Isolate supplements are non-nutrient, synthetic substances which mimic natural substances. This includes most supplements like amino acids, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, etc.

Vitamin B12 is one of the worst offenders, as B12 is the physical substance from which DNA (our cellular blueprint) is synthesized. Using synthetic B12 is a recipe for disaster, as the DNA synthesized from synthetic B12 alters slightly during every replication sequence.

Cancer developing in people who are "doing all the right things" has been a mystery till recently. Some researchers now believe this type of Cancer comes from "replicative fading". The slow denaturing and mutating of DNA integrity due to long-term synthetic B12 use from "so called" supplements and injections.

Synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbates, primarily ascorbic acid) is also extremely challenging.

Ascorbates are synthetic chemicals and are very different than Natural State, Berry Based, Vitamin C. Each ascorbate (there are many) leech a specific mineral out of tissue. Ascorbic Acid leeches copper and magnesium. Hidden ascorbic acid used in most processed foods as a preservative and may be a contributing factor in many immune dysfunction and depression dis-eases.

Step #2: Summary

Isolate synthetic vitamins and minerals are right up there with excipients for me. At best they're non-nutrient fluff you're paying for.

At worst synthetic B12 may contribute to Cancer and synthetic Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) may contribute to Cancer and seratonin related depression.

Step #2: Action Plan

Same as with excipients, simply upgrade your eating style to only include Natural State, Raw Super Foods and other pristine nutrients.

Step #3: Ensure Your Optimal Hydration and Alkaline pH

Hydration and alkaline pH tightly coupled, as they revolve around salt balance. The quality and quantity of salt/water intake determines hydration, as...

Salt and Water are the basis of life.

Quantity and quality of our salt intake determines quantity and quality of our hydration.

You can read our Super Food Product Quality Guide to learn more about the wide variations in salt.

How much salt? Each individual is unique and your body will notify you about your correct salt intake by your salt desire. If you've been eating processed food and denatured, excipient rich salt for years when you start with high quality salt you may experience intense salt intake temporarily as your body exchanges old, downscale salt with new, upscale salt.

What water is best? Personally I prefer the most acidic water I can enjoy. Water pH is set by mineral levels. As mineral content decreases, pH becomes more acidic and hydrating. As mineral content increases, pH becomes more alkaline and less hydrating.

To me, the purpose of water is to emulsify, dissolve and leech out downscale, inorganic mineral deposits. Drinking alkaline water, saturated with inorganic minerals, means our bodies must first detox the inorganic minerals which are creating the waters alkalinity, before moving on to detox inorganic minerals in our tissue. I prefer my water as pure H2O, which is acid pH, which is most hydrating and cleansing. My food has all the minerals I require.

The usual promotional feature of alkaline water is the change to it's wetting angle, which relates to surface tension and how easy water uptake can occur.

The cheapest way to enhance water's wetting angle is to add a pinch of Sun Fire Salt, fresh citrus juice or citrus essential oils. My favorite is Orange Oil.

Step #3: Summary

Salt and Water are the basis of life.

This is why we created Sun Fire Salt from the most luxuriant salts available - Himalayan Salt, Bolivian Rose Salt, Hawaiian Alaea Red Clay Salt and Chinese Sea Salt.

Step #3: Action Plan

Remember about salt from our Raw Super Food Product Quality Guide. Many "so called" (expensive) health salts are ground with low quality nickle grinders. As soft nickle grinders grind hard salt rocks, the resulting salt is filled with nickle dust.

Along the toxicity continuum there's mercury, nickel then cadmium. Nickel is far more toxic than mercury, especially in the quantities found in some Himalayan Salts. Be sure to contact your salt source and ask them about their grinders. If they have no information on their grinders or have no clue what you're talking about, upgrade to a more upscale salt source.

  1. Use highest quality salt you can find.
  2. Prefer acid pH water (only H2O without inorganic minerals) and have your minerals come from nutrient rich Raw Super Foods.
  3. If you much balance pH quickly salt washes or Cacao washes work well.

Step #4: Your Fast Start With Raw Super Foods

Your fastest starting point is to choose one of the packages from Our Super Food Catalog, preferably using our auto-ship program which include several additional free products.

The big win using Raw Super Foods is you'll eat way less which translates to more money in your pocket, more eco-friendly (less garbage) for our planet and less volume (calories) to digest and eliminate.

If you have budget considerations a minimum starting point is Coco Chai + Vanilla Agave Nectar with Sun Fire Salt and Digestive Enzymes.

Coco Chai is our premium chocolate drink mix with 96 Natural State, Raw Super Foods. Vanilla Agave is really Raw, processed between 110-115 degrees, with 100% Natural State, Vanilla Bean Powder free of sugar and other fillers.

My primary foods are Turbo Chai and Super Soup. I make large quantities of these and use them during the day. Here are my exact recipes.

Turbo Chai Gallon Recipe
1 Cup Vanilla Agave
4 1/4 Cups Pure Water
1 1/2 Cups Coco Chai Drink Mix
1 Cup Activated Nuts like
Pistachios, Walnuts, etc.
2 Tbl Pristine Guarana
1 Tbl Pristine Yerba Matte
Blend till smooth and add
10 1/2 CupsPure Water
10 Drops Pure Essential Orange Oil
Refrigerate & drink all day
Super Soup Quart+ Recipe
1 Cup Frozen, Shelled Edamame Beans
5 Cups Warm Water
4 Tbl Premier Tomato Powder
2 Tbl Premier EFA Oil Blend
Olive, Flax, Sesame, Borage)
1 Tbl Pristine Maca
1 Tbl Pristine Hemp Seeds
2 Tbl Pristine Pine Nuts
1 Tbl Pristine Sun Fire Salt
1/4 TspRed Pepper Powder
1 Tsp Cumin Powder
1 Tsp Sage Powder, Poultry Seasoning
or other seasoning of your choice
Blend till smooth

Using these recipes has dramatically changed my daily schedule. 10-15 minutes in the kitchen and the majority of my food is done for the day.

For every glass of Coco Chai I drink I usually drink an equal amount of pure water.

Vanilla Agave

Super Soup is extremely versatile. It's great with Avocados. You can use it as a salad dressing. Alter spices for different flavors - Oriental, Thai, Italian, etc.

It's great with Veggielicious Spice dehydrated veggies, Activated Nuts, Raw Crackers or Raw Chips.

Another fantastic addition is Sauerkraut or Raw Sour Cream.

A great way to satisfy your desire for crunchy, heating and drying foods is the Veggielicious Spice product from WholeFood Farmacy. They have a 5pack of these called VeggieHUNA Spice, which is your best investment.

If you've been considering experiments with Internet Marketing using a Network Marketing Company, I suggest you experiment with this product line. Once people try Veggielicious Spice, they're hooked for life.

Their Veges are low temperature dehydrated. The only less than 100% Raw component is their low temp roasted corn. It's a great transitional food while your upgrading your Raw Food Diet intake.

Step #4: Summary

Eating Raw Super Foods...

  1. Saves our planet by reducing garbage.
  2. Saves money as we eat way less.
  3. Saves kitchen time as Raw Food Prep and cleanup is way faster than cooking.

Step #4: Action Plan

  1. Start with our Simple Gourmet Raw Food Recipes.

Step #5: Reboot Elimination Strength & Speed with Salt Washes & Cacao Washes

The smooth and easy way to reboot elimination speed and strength is with Salt Washes and Cacao Washes.

About Salt Washes

A Salt Wash (or Salt Flush) is 1 Tbls. of high quality salt, preferably Sun Fire Salt or other nickle dust free salt, mixed into 1 Quart warm water. Hold your nose and down it goes.

You can think of Salt Washes as a "quarter colonic". Where colonics only clean the colon, Salt Washes clean stomach, small intestine and colon.

Salt Washes give most people rapid, full elimination within 15-30 minutes. If no flush occurs, this usually indicates a person is extremely salt deficient. In this case, I'd personally drink another quart of water and wait a day to do my next Salt Wash. If no flushing occurs in a few days, some people increase up to 2 Tbls. or more of Sun Fire Salt.

Water retention may occur with Salt Washes, which is good. Water retention only occurs to accelerate removing toxins from tissue. When a body with stored toxins registers the availability of high quality salt and water, it will retain both. Water is held in contact with tissue to leech out toxins. When the water saturates (toxins begin to precipitate out), then this water will be expelled.

As a body comes upscale this process can progress into 'rapid cycling', where salt and water are retained for a few hours then expelled. This process continues until mineral quarantined toxins are completely expelled. This may create rapid weight swings, with the final swing to optimal weight.

It's very important to only use acid pH water if cycling begins, otherwise energy will go to detoxing minerals out of the water if alkaline pH water is used. Read section above on salt and water for more details.

How long to keep up Salt Washes? My preference is one/day until water expelled with my bowel movements is clear. Then a Salt Wash every few months seems great maintenance. I follow my intuition on when to do these.

About Cacao Washes

Cacao Washes are a bit different. Where Salt Washes clear out easily removed digestive tract material, Cacao Washes go after more deeply, encrusted matter.

A Cacao Wash (or Cacao Flush) is 1/4-1/2 Cup of low shell debris Cacao Powder, Coco Chai or Chocolate Silk in 2-4 Cups water and down it goes. If you're using Cacao Nibs target 1/2-1 Cup of Nibs.

Be sure to only use Cacao Powder and Cacao Nibs which have had the majority of shell material removed. Cacao Bean shell contains many toxins designed to encourage bugs to steer clear. The Cacao products we source have all had the majority of Cacao Bean shell removed.

Think of mineral sediment encrusted around the interior of a pipe. This material is extremely hard to penetrate and once penetrated, water behind this sediment easily cleans the pipe.

Cacao Washes return our digestive tract's full elasticity (flexibility) and peristaltic (squeezing) strength. This action is directly tied to Cacao's extreme magnesium content (highest of any food), Chromium/Copper content and opiate receptor friendly alkaloids.

Think of your digestive tract expanding and contracting like inflating the deflating a balloon. This action tends to break up and expel encrusted petrified fecal matter in a few minutes.

Salt Washes and Cacao Washes are the cheapest Colonic money can buy. And where Colonics only clear the colon, these washes cleanse stomach, small intestines and colon.

People with extreme magnesium deficiencies may experience intense cramping, as magnesium reserve levels come back to peak and peristaltic (squeezing) strength returns.

The easiest way to do a Cacao Flush is with 1/4 Cup of Cacao Powder or 1/2 Cup Cacao Nibs. You can mix these in with your Coco Chai or with Vanilla Agave and Whole Coconut Flour and eat it by the spoonful.

Using downscale Cacao can create massive headaches, adrenal crash and nausea.

Be sure to read our Super Food Product Quality Guide and use only upscale Cacao for Cacao Washes.

Step #5: Summary

Salt Washes (Flushes) and Cacao Washes (Flushes) are fast, cheap ways to reboot elimination to peak.

Step #5: Action Plan

My rules of thumb for myself about washes are:

  1. I used Salt Washes until I had clear water come out with my bowel movements.
  2. I used Cacao Washes until I had no change in peristaltic (squeezing) sensation.

Step #6: Maximize Your Digestive Fire

Digestive Fire relates to how fast and completely a person is able to reduce complex foods into component nutrients, then transfer those nutrient components across the intestinal track wall.

Recently manufacturer's of expensive designer cleanse programs and candida killing products have fostered the perception candida is bad and interrupts digestion.

Candida, parasites and other microbial entities are like ants, pill bugs and rats. They only express themselves as a secondary cleanup facility when our primary cleanup facility of normal digestion and elimination go offline. They only become a negative force when people persist in continual downscale, life habits giving these entities opportunity to entrench and remain operational for extended periods.

In many cases, candida and parasites may be the only thing keeping a person alive or at least upright and functioning. Killing candida and parasites can cause a variety of extremely negative effects. Better to support them finishing their cleanup function and rebooting digestion and elimination, so microbes leave intact and under their own locomotion.

For more information read the article Candida's Healing Power.

Digestive Fire can be greatly increased by using excipient free, plant based...

Digestive enzymes which reduce complex food into simpler component nutrients.

Prebiotics, such as Natural State Raw Agave and Blue Green Algae, which create an ecology (environment) where Probiotics multiply and implant into our intestinal tract walls faster.

Probiotics are primarily intestinal wall implanted, aerobic (oxygen breathing), friendly flora (bacteria) which further reduce food components and facilitate their transfer across the intestinal tract walls into our blood streams.

Using these together, especially taking one each of Digest, Salivarius & Crystal Manna with and between each meal, supercharge Digestive Fire to continuous, peak efficiency.

Another contributer to optimal Digestive Fire are seaweeds as:

These three glands are the Holy Trinity of Energy and work together to manage energy metabolism in our bodies.

Goji Berries have a place here also, as Goji Berries seem to boost HGH (Human Growth Hormone) production and regenerate the HGH release pathway. HGH has been called the Fountain of Youth as HGH is a primary contributer to our youth. This applies to our internal experience and externally in quality of skin, hair, nails and eyes.

Step #6 Summary

When elimination and digestive fire are at peak, our entire experience of life changes. Gone are food comas and mood swing. In their place, we enjoy great comfort and continuous peak energy and mood.

Step #6 Action Plan

There are many great enzymes and probiotics available. The only real difference is price/performance.

The way to tell how many enzymes are required for a specific meal is to eat enough enzymes to retain a lite feeling after eating.

If you require 5-10+ enzymes to feel lite, then it's time to upgrade your enzymes. Our enzymes are more expensive by the bottle and usually one is equivalent to 5-10 of most other enzymes.

The same applies to Probiotics, though the effects are more subtle.

Step #7: Ensure Optimal Nutrient Intake

Optimal Nutrient Intake expands our consideration of Raw Super Foods to include products like Vitamin C Complex, Vitamin B Complex, Flora loaded with nanoized nutrients (Nanoized products) and all supplement-like substances to only be in a Natural State form.

The two really big wins here are Berry Based, Vitamin C Complex and Nanoized B Complex. People with deficiencies in either of these usually feel instant exhilaration the first few times they use these.

Super Indium is another powerful synergist, which can increase nutrient uptake by 75%.

Step #8: Optimize Your, Deep Continuous Sleep

Here are my primary considerations for enjoying deep, continuous, sleep:

  1. Quiet Sleeping Area which encompasses removing all sensory input. Sound. Light. Electrical Fields.
  2. Clear Lymphatic System which can be optimized with Vitalize. Lymph Fluid is pumped by movement and can only pump when lymphatic passages are clear. Vitalize dissolves the 'glue' which holds together lymphatic sediment in cases of lymphatic passage blockage which is referred to as 'stagnant lymph'.
  3. Adequate Tryptophan which can be found in nuts, seeds and is especially high in Edamame Beans. Many dairy and turkey cravings relate to Tryptophan deficiency. For most, shelled, organic, non-GMO, Edamame Beans are usually best. If Tryptophan deficiency is occurring, a simple test of eating a handful of Edamame Beans will tell the tale. People who start eating them frozen, by the handful, usually have raging Tryptophan deficiencies.

Another contributer is adequate movement/exercise. If lymph fluid is moving a long walk every day is usually enough to move lymph fluid and stimulate production of hormones.

Hormones are another large contributer. Using Coco Chai with additional Goji Berries, Maca, Bee Pollen, Hemp Seeds, Whole Coconut Flour and Pure Vanilla Powder is great. Each of these Raw Super Foods contributes specific nutrients to hormone production, release, transit and uptake.

Skip expensive, isolate, synthetic melatonin and HGH and try Natural State, Raw Super Foods first. You may be surprised by how energized you are when you're awake and how deeply you rest during sleep.

Vitalize User's Guide

My preference for using Vitalize is to start with six capsules 2-3 hours before bed with 16 oz. of water. This will fully rehydrate the herbs and allow sufficient time for you to expel the water before you sleep.

Most people will have a strong 'sleep response' for the first few days, which is a nice way of saying they pass out.

It's extremely important to do this before bed, as driving or other activities may become hazardous if a person becomes drowsy.

Then after the initial 'sleep response' dissipates, usually 3-4 days, I'd finish the bottle at three capsules before bed.

Then I'd keep another bottle handy for any nights I felt sleep might be long in coming.

If I felt stimulated, rather than relaxed, I'd switch over to using Vitalize in the morning until the stimulated feeling passed. This happens rarely and is usually an indicator of chemicals/metals purging from lymphatic system. If this occurred and I was desiring to sleep, I'd take three caps of Pure Radiance Vitamin C, two caps of Chem-Free and two caps of Metal Free. Many times this combo will neutralize free floating chemicals/metals, especially mercury, which usually brings a body back to relaxation.

Step #9: Rapid Candida Flushing

One of the most common questions I receive is about Pathogen Flushing. In general, either Candida or Parasites. Along with pathogens people many times ask about chemical/metal flushing.

Candida is a powerful partner to us, which becomes active as our secondary digestive system when our primary digestive system atrophies or crashes.

When people ask me, "How do I kill my Candida?", I respond by "You better hope you fail, because the only thing keeping you alive may be your Candida."

Candida 'turns on' when it's required and 'turns off' or goes dormant when it's activity is complete. A better way to think of Candida is, "How can I support and accelerate my Candida to compete it's mission as fast and smooth as possible?"

The answer is to reboot Digestive Fire to it's maximum along with maintaining Optimal Hydration, Elimination & Lymphatic Flushing. Increasing digestive enzymes and increasing intake of Natural State foods like Coco Chai and Super Soup can be used to reboot primary digestion if it's compromised.

Step #10: Rapid Parasite & Chemical/Metal Flushing

Accumulations of parasites, chemicals and metals are tightly coupled. In general, you're served to go after all these together. Many of the previous steps in this guide address the heavy lifting of flushing large, intestinal parasites. Parasites referred to here are partitioned in biofilms and cerebral/spinal fluid where no white blood cells are available.

This process can be extremely intense and is best started after continuously implementing all the previous steps for 3-6 months, preferably until eye color has become light and energy/rest cycles are at continuous peak.

Biofilms are compartments which surround parasites, protecting them from our immune system. Biofilm based parasites are neither recognized nor effected in any way by our immune system. Many times these biofilms have chemical/metal accumulations and fibroid tissue integrated into their structure.

The point here is to mobilize and rapidly eliminate all these materials together. This is extremely important as our bodies are very intelligent about partitioning chemicals and metals so they effect us as little as possible.

If chemicals and metals are mobilized in a downscale system, with 'stagnant lymph' and slow elimination. If these substances spread through a body becoming lodged in lymphatic passages (stagnant lymph) or reabsorbed (slow elimination) symptoms can range from mild discomfort to organ damage to death.

The general components used, in addition to 3-6 months continuous use of the previous steps in this program are:

  1. Vitalize in use during entire process to keep lymphatic passages free flowing.
  2. Sun Fire Salt & Seaweed Energy supports peak adrenal, thyroid & parathyroid function.
  3. Allicidin (Garlic) to dissolve biofilms.
  4. Oleuropein (Olive Leaf) is a natural, wide-spectrum booster of anti-biotic, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal activity.
  5. Protease is an industrial strength, protein digesting, enzyme which tends to break down pathogen cell walls so our immune system can more easily recognize and destroy them.
  6. Chem-Free is a powerful chemical chelator.
  7. Metal-Free is a powerful metal chelator.
  8. Pure Radiance Vitamin C is another powerful metal chelator, especially for mercury.

Chelators are substances which attach to and temporarily neutralize chemicals and metals during their transit and elimination. Drinking Pure Radiance Vitamin C with a pinch of Sun Fire Salt, Pure Organic MSM and Vanilla Agave makes an industrial strength medium to supercharge chelation. The Camu Camu and other berries in Pure Radiance greatly ease and accelerate chemical and metal flushing.

Chemical/Metal Flushing is best done after eye color is light, and until all colored eye rings/splotches are cleared. Eye rings occur between pupil and iris. You can see these by shining a flashlight in the side of your eye at and angle.

If I lived in an extremely polluted, urban center I'd personally use Chem-Free, Metal-Free and extra Pure Radiance C on a daily basis.
