Over the last 30 years or so, the medical profession and the medical community have progressed to unprecedented heights and achievements in areas of reconstruction and surgical procedure. Yes, you will need all the professional help you can obtain from the Medical Community. If you decide to go home early, rejoice, for the Father prepares a place for you. Various pathogens can cause gastroenteritis an inflammation of the stomach and small intestine. These digestive hormones , including gastrin , secretin , cholecystokinin , and ghrelin , are mediated through either intracrine or autocrine mechanisms, indicating that the cells releasing these hormones are conserved structures throughout evolution.

As the cells produce metabolic debris, the blood carries it to the organs of detoxification. These organs are the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, many of the mucous membranes, and the colon. If these organs of detoxification are themselves filled with debris, they of course cannot accept any more toxins. In such a case, the blood cannot accept further debris from the cells and, before long, there are 70 to trillion garbage cans completely full. It is like the city dump being filled to capacity and not accepting any more garbage trucks.

Before long, the entire community has become bogged down. The liver is the major organ of detoxification, and also the most stressed by our modern lifestyle. One cannot live long without the heart, brain, kidneys, or pancreas, yet it is proper liver function, which prevents these organs from becoming diseased. Here, in addition to metabolic wastes, is where environmental contamination, food additives, and all other chemical pollutants are removed from the body.

You should be just as much or more concerned about the condition of your liver as about the condition of your heart. If you have had hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, infectious mononucleosis, or other liver damage, you should become very protective of this vital organ. The intake of anything that places undue stress on the liver should be eliminated entirely. Such a list would include: Unrefined oils, or butter for sautéing, can be used without creating peroxides and free radicals, which are toxic to the liver.

Metabolizing essential fats cholesterol, triglycerides, lipoproteins and thus preventing their accumulation in the bloodstream where they often form deposits on blood vessel walls atherosclerosis. Secreting a fluid bile which stores in the gall bladder or the enlarged bile duct and empties into the small intestine. The bile acts as a carrier for all liver wastes. It is also essential for the proper digestion and assimilation of fats and all fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, K, lecithin, and essential fatty acids.

The gall bladder is a hollow muscular organ which stores and concentrates bile and is attached to the undersurface of the liver. When a meal is eaten, especially if it contains some fats or oils, the gall bladder is stimulated to contract and should freely expel its contents into the small intestine to emulsify fatty nutrients for proper absorption, and to allow poisonous wastes which the liver has removed from the body to be eliminated through the intestines.

Many people living in our society today, even those in their teens, fail to have free, unobstructed flow of bile from the liver and gall bladder in response to food entering the small intestine.

Eating refined or processed foods, eating fresh food which is mineral deficient because it is grown on depleted or chemically treated soil, lack of regular vigorous exercise, stress, multiple distractions during meals, and many other unnatural aspects of our lifestyle have combined to alter the chemistry of bile so that formation of solid particles from bile components is a commonplace occurrence among Americans.

These solid particles remain in the gall bladder or the base of the liver for many years and become progressively harder, sometimes calcifying into "gallstones. When a significant number of solid bile particles accumulate, the free flow of the gallbladder is diminished, causing progressive stagnation and congestion of the liver.

The body begins to suffer the effects of poor assimilation of fat-soluble nutrients, which may play a role in the development of eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, falling hair, tendonitis, night blindness, accumulation of calcium in tissues, and sometimes prostate enlargement in men. Hemorrhoids due to blockage of the portal vein draining the liver are often the result of this congestion.

The importance of cleansing the debris from the liver and gall bladder, thus keeping the bile free flowing, cannot be overemphasized. This can be effectively accomplished by doing the Liver-Gall Bladder Flush a form of which at one time was widely used at the world famous Lahey Clinic in Boston, MA , which is necessary even if one has had their gall bladder removed. The four basic active principles in this procedure are:. Apple juice high in malic acid or ortho-phosphoric acid, which acts as a solvent in the bile to weaken adhesions between solid globules.

Epsom salt magnesium sulfate , taken by mouth and enema, which allows magnesium to be absorbed into the bloodstream, relaxing smooth muscles. Large solid particles which otherwise might create spasms are able to pass through a relaxed bile duct. Olive oil, unrefined, which stimulates the gall bladder and bile duct to contract powerfully, thus expelling solid particles kept in storage for years. Coffee enemas, which consist of a coffee solution retained in the colon.

They activate the liver to secrete its waste into the bile, enhancing bile flow and further relaxing the bile duct muscle. The Liver-Gall Bladder Flush is one of the most important procedures for persons over 15 years of age. The steps in doing this are not difficult and are as follows:. For 5 days prior to the "Flush," consume as much apple juice or cider as the appetite permits, in addition to regular meals.

Nutritional supplements should also be taken during this time. The first preference for juice would be freshly juiced organic apples, and secondly, apple juice or cider unsweetened and preferably organic if possible purchased either from the health food or grocery store. A person should be sure to read the labels carefully and obtain a juice that has no additives whatsoever. If one is a severe hypoglycemic, is diabetic, or has difficulty tolerating the juice or cider, he or she may take 20 drops of HRT Phosfood Liquid or Super Phos 30 with each meal 60 drops daily in RO filtered water or distilled water or some type of juice other than apple.

Due to the high acidity, it is wise that one brush his teeth or rinse out his mouth with Milk of Magnesia or baking soda solution after taking the ortho-phosphoric acid. At noon on the sixth day, one should eat a normal lunch and take the Metabolic Formulas scheduled for that time.

Two hours after lunch, 1 or 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt magnesium sulfate dissolved in 1 to 3 ounces of warm mineral water, RO filtered water or distilled water should be taken. The taste may be objectionable to some. If so, the mixture can be followed by a little citrus juice if desired freshly squeezed if possible. This should be retained for 15 minutes and expelled. The coffee should be made as strong as one can tolerate but no stronger than 6 tablespoons of ground coffee per quart of water.

Five hours after lunch take 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt, dissolved as the previous dose Step 3. Six or seven hours after lunch, one may fast if desired. However, it is preferable to have a fresh fruit salad, using as many fresh fruits in season as possible. Use heavy, unpasteurized whipping cream as a dressing on the salad, whipped with a little raw unheated honey if desired.

One can eat as much as desired of the whipped-cream-covered salad. If fresh fruit is unavailable, frozen berries such as strawberries, blueberries, boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc. These should also be covered with whipped cream and a large portion eaten. Take citrus fruit or juice after the cream and fruit meal, if desired.

For hypoglycemics, the cream should balance the fruit. However, each hypoglycemic should adjust the amount of salad eaten to his individual tolerance. At bedtime, there can be 1 of 3 choices Note: Olive oil stimulates the gall bladder and bile duct to contract powerfully, thus expelling solid particles kept in storage for years.

All juice should be freshly squeezed if possible: Take 4 tablespoons of unrefined olive oil or 4 tablespoons of Formula F followed by 1 tablespoon of citrus juice every 30 minutes until 6 ounces of oil have been consumed. This choice is preferable for those who are unusually weak or who have had gall bladder problems in the past. It has been found helpful to rinse the mouth with an alcohol base drink like Sherry to cut out the residue of the oil taste.

If an alcohol base drink is unobtainable, try a natural carbonated drink, or club soda. Do not swallow the alcohol drink or the carbonated drink. If one should vomit during the consumption of the oil and juice, the procedure should be continued until it is finished. It is not necessary to make up for the amount that was vomited. Immediately upon finishing the oil and juice or while taking it , one should go to bed and lie on the right side with the right knee drawn up toward the chin for 30 minutes before going to sleep.

If there is a strong feeling of nausea the following morning, one should try to remain in bed until it subsides somewhat.

Vomiting should not be forced. Upon arising, one must take another strong coffee enema with Epsom salt in it or, 1 hour before breakfast, take 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt dissolved in 1 to 3 ounces of warm mineral water, RO filtered water or distilled water. If one continues to feel nauseous or very sore in the upper abdomen even after the enema, a light diet of sprouts, fruit raw or steamed , yogurt or kefir, and freshly extracted vegetable juices especially with beet greens in them should be resumed.

If one finds that the Metabolic Formulas cause discomfort immediately after the flush, they may be omitted for three days.

Taking one hydrochloric acid tablet at bedtime will help reduce any nausea during the night. If you have a tendency to get nauseated from the oil, take 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera juice after your doses of oil and citrus juice.

Placing a hot water bottle over the liver area under the right ribcage during the night also helps relieve nausea. One should not be frightened by the above references to nausea, vomiting, soreness of the abdomen, etc.

Many people complete this procedure with minimal discomfort, and nearly everyone feels much better after completing it. Flushing the liver and gall bladder in the manner described if the gall bladder is present stimulates and cleans these organs as no other process does. Oftentimes, persons suffering for years from gallstones, lack of appetite, billiousness, backaches, nausea, and a host of other complaints will find gallstone-type objects in the stool the day following the flush.

These objects are light to dark green in color, very irregular in shape, gelatinous in texture, and of sizes varying from "grape seed" size to "cherry" size.

If there seems to be a large number of these objects in the stool, the flush should be repeated in 2 weeks. The fast should last one or two days. We are now giving the body a rest and an opportunity to cleanse itself of much waste on the individual cell level.

Each day of the fast one quart of fresh carrot juice and one pint of celery juice should be taken, along with all the RO filtered or distilled water desired.

It is best to dilute the fresh juice with equal parts RO filtered or distilled water. It is important to remember that unless sufficient fluids are taken the poisons become concentrated and are not eliminated in the natural way.

If there were only one kind of pill that would help everybody, the cancer patient or otherwise, it would be "Okra-Pepsin-E3" made by Standard Process, Inc. Certain foods, such as pasteurized milk and many cooked foods, cause the mucus buildup on the wall of the small intestine raw foods do not cause this mucus buildup. The mucus coats the villi on the wall of the small intestine. The villi are like tiny fingers that stick out from the intestinal wall to absorb nutrients from the digested food, which is primarily liquid.

The mucus on the villi blocks the absorption of nutrients from the food. Sometimes the mucus gets so thick and tough it is almost like a plastic film. Almost no nutrition can get through to the body. He or she would be starving and therefore would want to eat more food including protein. That would lead to more of the pancreatic enzymes being used to digest the protein even though it could not be properly absorbed. When all the pancreatic enzymes are used up, there are none left in the blood to destroy cancer cells.

The okra is a very sticky, gooey, vegetable material. It tends to stick the pepsin enzyme to the mucus on the intestinal wall long enough to digest some of the mucus. The E-3 is a powerful tissue repair factor. It was originally developed for the patient with stomach ulcers or colitis. If the Okra-Pepsin-E3 capsules are taken for a few days to several weeks, one after each meal reduce the amount of capsules if diarrhea occurs , the mucus will gradually be digested.

The blood can then receive more nutrients from the food, even if it is from a poor diet. Then, once a year, take the Okra-Pepsin-E3 capsules again for a few days or a week to keep the mucus from building back up. The mucus blockage varies with different people. Sometimes it blocks minerals and larger molecules only, while in other people it partially blocks all nutrients.

While taking the Okra-Pepsin-E3 capsules people who have heavily mucus-coated intestines might find mucus coming out with their stool, convoluted like the intestines. Kelley has had people who have been taking the capsules call him to say that they think they have just passed their intestines and what should they do?

One year-old patient called Dr. Kelley to report that the Okra-Pepsin-E3 capsules worked a miracle by relieving reoccurring pain that she had suffered with for years.

The pain would come and go apparently without cause and felt like bricks were pressing against her internal organs and lower back and at the same time her right side and leg would feel numb. On the morning of the eighth day, after taking one Okra-Pepsin-E3 capsule with each meal for a week, she spent 45 minutes sweating, straining and pushing to have a bowel movement, and when it finally came out she could hardly believe what she saw — long, intertwined black ropes or collapsed tubes of mucus filled the toilet!

After this bowel movement and the disappearance of her pain she realized that there must have been a connection to eating a large meal and the pain — food passing through the intestine would push the mucus-coated intestine onto nerves, which caused the pain and numbness. The Okra-Pepsin-E3 is indicated for both underweight and overweight people. In both cases nutrients are not being absorbed.

Even if they are taking enzymes to digest the food they eat, they absorb only the smaller carbohydrate molecules while the larger protein molecules are blocked. In underweight people the carbohydrates are used efficiently burned for energy, not turned into fat , but the person becomes thin as they lose muscle mass from lack of protein absorption. In overweight people the carbohydrates are not used efficiently they are turned into fat , and this causes the person to become overweight as they also lose muscle mass.

A high, retention enema, using coffee, should be taken to aid in the elimination of toxic waste material from the body. After 35 years, Dr. Kelley still takes his daily enema. The coffee enema, besides stimulating liver detoxification, also has beneficial effects in cleaning the colon.

Coffee is an excellent solvent for encrusted waste accumulated along the walls of the colon. The caffeine also directly stimulates the peristaltic muscle to contract more powerfully and loosen such deposits, which are occasionally visible as hard, black material and "ropes" of mucus.

Gradually, as the protein metabolism of the body improves, the muscle tone of the bowel becomes normal and thorough evacuation is possible without the aid of the enema. Essentially, the coffee enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed — that of elimination in 1 or 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature. At first, most people dislike enemas and have psychological barriers against them.

Ignorance of the purpose and function of the enema, as well as misunderstanding of the proper procedure for taking it bring about this aversion. I have observed, however, that the persons most opposed to enemas soon reverse their prejudices and become the most avid supporters of them! In many cases, the enema relieves distress and gives a sense of well being and cleanliness never before experienced. The proper removal of toxins and debris from the colon is absolutely essential in all conditions of disease and ill health.

Enemas using coffee in the afternoon or evening may interfere with sound sleep. If enemas are needed at these times, many patients prefer to use only warm pure water omitting the coffee. But it is better to take coffee at these times also, and a weaker solution to permit sleep would be better than not using coffee at all. Just before bedtime each day, make a pot of coffee 1 quart.

Unplug coffeepot and allow to cool to room temperature. It is best to arise early enough each morning to allow time to take the enema in a relaxed, unhurried state. The coffee must be regular, non-instant, non-decaffeinated coffee.

Aluminum or Teflon should not be used at any time! We have found the coffee that is unboiled or prepared via the "drip method" is preferable. Use 3 to 4 tablespoons of ground coffee to 1 quart of Filtered Reverse Osmosis RO or distilled water. Any water that enters into the body should be RO filtered or distilled water. Avoidance of city water supplies always chlorinated, which has been strongly linked to hardening of the arteries, and often fluoridated, which has been strongly linked to cancer and thyroid disease is most essential to removing stress from the kidneys.

Pure RO filtered water or distilled water should be used for cooking and drinking — and even for preparing enemas, since a significant portion of the enema water may be absorbed and filtered through the kidneys.

Even if one has a well, it should not be assumed safe. Often toxic amounts of copper, cadmium, and lead are picked up from the plumbing even if the well is pure. If one distills water from a city supply, one must remember that certain hydrocarbon contaminants have a lower boiling point than that of water.

The distiller should have a valve to permit their escape as they gasify. If not, they will concentrate in the distilled water and will need to be removed by filtering through activated charcoal. An acceptable Distilled Water System: H 2 0 Only, Inc.

Filters breed deadly bacteria. If your water supply is dirty a filter will get dirty in less than 30 days — A filter should be changed every 30 days even if your water supply is clean. If a coffee enema makes a person jittery, shaky, nervous, nauseated, or light-headed, the coffee solution is too strong. The amount of coffee can be adjusted from 1 teaspoon to 4 tablespoons per quart of water as tolerance level permits. The high, retention coffee enema should consist of 1 quart of coffee, held for 15 minutes.

Some people, children especially, can take and retain only a pint 2 cups of enema solution at a time. If this is the case, one must take 2 enemas each time, one right after the other, and hold each for 15 minutes as directed.

Upon rising each morning plug in the coffeepot for a few seconds to bring coffee to body temperature; unplug and take the morning coffee enema. Before the enema do some form of mild exercise if possible, such as walking briskly. If one is extremely debilitated and weak, this step will of course need to be omitted until strength returns.

Attempt a normal bowel movement. The enema is much more effective if the colon has been evacuated. In many cases, not enough bulk collects to instigate a normal bowel movement. When no normal bowel movements are forthcoming, the enema cleans the colon adequately. After the normal bowel movement, if one is forthcoming, or before taking the coffee retention enema, most people find that taking an enema with 1 quart of warm RO filtered water or distilled water is very helpful do not retain this enema.

This procedure begins the cleansing of the colon, removing large particles of residue and most of the gas. When it is completed, the coffee retention enema may be taken. The warm water enema is optional and does not need to be taken if the coffee enema can be retained for the desired period. Place 1 quart of coffee in your enema bag or bucket. You may use a Fleet enema bag, which is a disposable large volume plastic bag, an over-the-counter item from the local pharmacy or hospital supply outlet.

This enema bag lasts about 2 years. The enema tip on the end of the hose is not adequate to give a "high enema. This colon tube is a soft flexible rubber-like tube around 30 inches in length. It follows the curves and flexure of the colon. The colon tube is usually inserted about 12 to 20 inches into the rectum.

It is difficult today to find a colon tube. However, a plastic rectal catheter or tube about 18 inches long may be ordered from your pharmacy as an over-the-counter item. The enema bag should not be over 36 inches higher than the rectum. If it is placed too high, the coffee runs into the colon too fast and under too much pressure, causing discomfort.

There are several positions that can be used while inserting the colon tube. There is also the knee-chest method, with chest and knees on the floor and buttocks in the highest position possible. Most people, however, find it easiest to lie on the left side until the solution is out of the bag or bucket. The enema should never be taken while sitting on the toilet or standing.

Often, if a little bit of the solution is allowed to flow into the colon as the tube is being inserted, one may comfortably get past these kinks. If a kink bends the tube too much and stops the flow of liquid, then the tube can be inserted only as far as it will go, still allowing the liquid to flow freely. Sometimes, if one hits a kink that stops the flow of the liquid completely, the tube can be pulled out slowly just to the point where the solution is felt flowing again.

Frequently, the tube can be pushed back in, past the turn that previously stopped the liquid. Regardless of the position used up to this point, one should now lie on the left side for at least 5 minutes, then on the back for another 5 minutes, then on the right side for at least 5 minutes. Those who have excessive gas may leave the tube in the colon with the hose clamp open.

This allows gas to escape through the enema container. Frequently, the coffee will go in and out of the enema bag or bucket until the gas is relieved. After the enema is retained for 15 minutes or longer, it may be expelled. If you find you have a lot of gas and it is difficult to retain the enema, try putting 2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses into your coffee solution. If you get a sudden gas bubble causing an urge to expel the solution, breathe very fast through your nose using your abdominal muscles like a bellows.

This usually helps the colon wall break up the gas bubble. If you find that a little coffee leaks out, place an old towel under your buttocks. Occasionally, the intestinal tract will become obstructed. Usually under these circumstances, no food or feces will come through. After a few days, one becomes extremely nauseated and starts vomiting. He or she will be very sick and will normally run a high temperature. This should be watched quite carefully, for in such cases immediate emergency treatment is absolutely necessary.

One should never allow themselves to become extremely toxic. But, in order to distinguish between a healing toxic reaction and an intestinal obstruction, as soon as nausea or vomiting develops and no food is passing through, all supplements and food should be stopped for 5 days.

Water and juice may be taken during this time. If there is no vomiting, food is passing through, and the temperature remains below degrees, the diet and normal routine may be resumed, as one may assume there is no obstruction. If, during the 5 days off the supplements with no solid food intake, one begins to vomit and has abdominal pain with high temperature, the physician should be consulted so that he or she can check for intestinal obstruction.

The kidneys are vital organs of detoxification. They filter approximately 4, quarts of blood daily. Many drugs are eliminated through the kidneys, especially the common pain-killing drugs that can be extremely damaging to these organs. Such drugs include aspirin, phenacetin and acetominophen.

The kidneys should be flushed each day with liberal quantities of fluid, either RO filtered water, distilled water or fresh fruit and vegetable juices preferably organic.

Parsley tea is excellent for strengthening the kidneys. Those with kidney problems should avoid ordinary commercial teas and coffee as a beverage. Herbal teas are acceptable. For those who tend to retain fluid, watermelon is an excellent diuretic. If the melon is organically grown, the rind should be juiced and sipped first thing in the morning and then the red fleshy part of the fruit may be eaten. Two mornings a week, one may take the juice of a whole lemon in warm RO filtered water or distilled water as a diuretic citrus should not be used more than 2 days a week, as it tends to upset the calcium-phosphorus metabolism if used more frequently.

Shavegrass or horsetail tea is a good diuretic and also good for the skin and hair. An excellent diuretic salad may be made by combining cabbage and onions — finely sliced — with crushed raw garlic, parsley, and herbs like sage, cumin, and juniper berries, if available. Cover this mixture with very hot RO filtered water or distilled water and place a lid over it for 10 minutes. Drain the mixture the liquid is good to save for soup bases, grains, etc. It can be eaten as is or refrigerated first.

It can also be mixed with other salads. In kidney disease the protein intake should be limited and extra vitamins and minerals taken. Life is dependent upon the adequate exchanges of gases in the lungs.

The most significant are the removal of carbonic acid and the flow of oxygen into the blood. The lungs give off many other gaseous wastes.

No amount of toothpaste or mouthwash will remove it for long, since it comes from the bloodstream. One can be assured, however, that this is only a phase and that the poisons are leaving the body. Mucus-forming food should be avoided if mucus is a problem. These are principally dairy products, with the exception of butter and cream, and baked flour products. Anti-mucus foods such as raw onions and garlic, cayenne pepper, freshly ground black pepper, fresh ginger, and horseradish should be eaten liberally.

Most people overlook the skin as an organ of detoxification. But it is sometimes called "the third kidney," since many of its functions in fluid and electrolyte balance are similar to those of the kidneys. When great amounts of poisons flood the body, all systems are overloaded and this function of the skin is sorely needed. As the skin is utilized, all sorts of eruptions, odors, colors, and blemishes may appear.

These conditions will disappear as the body becomes purified. One can quickly assess the relative efficiency of elimination through the skin by looking at his iris the colored portion of the eye. The skin is represented by the outermost part of the iris. If it is very dark and dense, the condition is called a "scurf rim" in iridology, and it means that the skin is relatively blocked as an organ of elimination.

To open it up, skin brushing before a shower and vigorous use of a loofah sponge in the shower are recommended. A good quality vegetable-bristle, skin brush should be purchased from the health food store or pharmacy. One should brush up the front of the body and down the back, over all exposed skin surfaces, until a warm glow is felt. Then one should take a warm shower and rub briskly with a loofah sponge available in most health food stores to remove the layers of dead skin loosened by the brushing.

We have found it best to take a hot shower each morning. Castile or other pure soap should be used — but in a minimal amount, since heavy soaping will wash all the valuable skin oils off and can cause the skin to overproduce oil in order to compensate.

The hair should be shampooed frequently with a non-chemical soap or shampoo, which can be found in health food stores. At the end of the shower, one should turn the water to cool, then to warm. As one becomes accustomed to the temperature change, he or she may go from hot to cold and back several times.

This exercises the tiny muscles in the skin, which control dilation and contraction of the pores. As they become stronger, they can respond better to the physiological demands of the body.

After the shower, one can sit in a tub of water with a cup of apple cider vinegar added, to restore and strengthen the acid mantle of the skin. Afterward, the body should be dried and rubbed briskly with a towel until a warm glow is felt. Epsom salt baths may also be used to help draw toxins out of the skin. These baths are especially beneficial if one is going through a "healing crisis" and is especially toxic and feeling bad.

Such a bath works best after the skin brushing and use of a loofah sponge. A tub is filled with warm to hot water and 4 or more cups of Epsom salt are dissolved in it. This bath is quite relaxing and good for tense, sore muscles, and may be taken as often as needed. Every fourth night the cancer patient should be rubbed from head to toe with a mixture of olive oil and castor oil in equal parts.

Then a hot soaking bath should be taken for 15 minutes to allow the oil to penetrate. This is followed by going to bed under heavy covers for about one hour to sweat the poisons out. Then a cleansing shower is taken. This may be discontinued after three months. Salt-water irrigation of the nostrils is very helpful with nasal mucus and sinus congestion alike. Mouth breathing places incalculable stress on the lungs, nearly equivalent to that of cigarette smoking if one lives in urban pollution.

To irrigate the nostrils, dissolve 1 teaspoon of sea salt in 16 ounces of warm water in a bowl of appropriate size. While bending forward, block one nostril and place the other below the water surface in the bowl. The water should be gently pulled up the nostril until one can taste the salty mixture trickling to the back of the throat; then it should be blown out.

This should be repeated with the other nostril and alternated several times. Breathing exercises should follow the cleansing of the nostrils. If done on a regular basis, these yield tremendous benefits. Deep breathing yields a multitude of benefits through maximum use of lung capacity.

Rapid breathing is an energizing exercise, which promotes flow of energy into the lungs and digestive organs. It should be done before meals, after being in a stuffy room, or whenever a lift is needed. Alternate-nostril breathing has a calming effect on the nervous system. It can be used effectively to overcome anxiety states and insomnia, and sometimes to relieve headaches. Breath is the external manifestation of our life force.

It is our very life. We can live for a while without food or drink, but not without breath. In almost every case of cancer, particularly those cases of long standing, the protein from the muscles has been used to maintain life. In other words protein metabolism has been so poor that the body had to take protein from the muscles and, to a very great degree, the muscles have been consumed. After the cancer is destroyed, the muscles begin to rebuild. This takes approximately three years.

If the muscles are exercised strenuously during this time a hernia may develop. For this reason we have found it best to replace strenuous exercise with a brisk walk at least once a day for three years following therapy.

About the year BC Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, made the statement, "Your food shall be your medicine and your medicine shall be your food. This is particularly true when it comes to the successful treatment of the cancer patient. It never ceases to amaze me at the number of learned as well as ignorant persons who scoff when diet is mentioned. They all seem to believe that no matter what is placed into the body, by some magical process, it makes for perfect health. Yet these same people are very fastidious and concerned about what, how and how much food is fed to their pedigreed dogs and cats and their registered cattle and horses.

It is ironic that they cannot see that their own health is equally dependent upon a proper balanced nutritional process. From the first printing of this book in we have called our diet the "Kelley Almond Diet" because the principal protein is almond and vegetable protein. Raw almonds are a very good source of protein and may be used as directed: A mixture of raw almonds, cashews, pecans, filberts, Brazil nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds is recommended to supplement protein during the first six months when meat proteins are severely restricted.

These should be eaten any time up to 1: Cashew nuts are desirable, especially if the patient is also suffering from hypoglycemia low blood sugar. Nuts, seeds, and grains should be stored in closed containers in a very cool location. Refrigeration is best if one has the space.

Some enzyme researchers do not recommend the use of raw seeds or nuts, claiming that the enzyme inhibitors in the seeds or nuts make proper digestion difficult.

But if nuts and seeds are chewed well or soaked overnight in RO filtered or distilled water the activity of enzyme inhibitors is greatly reduced or nullified. Should you have difficulty chewing whole raw almonds, you may substitute two tablespoons of pure raw almond or sesame seed butter.

We have maintained throughout this treatise that cancer is nothing more than a pancreatic enzyme deficiency. The greatest cause of this deficiency is the amount of cooked protein mutated amino acids fed into the body. The pancreas simply cannot manufacture enough enzymes to digest the large volumes of pasteurized milk and cheese and cooked meat we eat and have any enzymes left over to digest the foreign protein we know as cancer. If people would not eat protein after 1: However, a cancer patient should never give up all protein, as they might be tempted to do when they first learn that too much protein in the diet prevents the pancreas from ridding the body of cancer.

The pancreatic enzymes themselves consist of protein amino acids , and unless the body is fed adequate protein, the pancreatic enzyme production will stop and the cancer tissue will make a very rapid growth. The total withdrawal from protein has been the fallacy of many cancer diets, such as the "Grape Cure.

Yet, over prolonged periods of total abstinence from protein, the pancreas fails. Proper balance and regulated intake is the answer. It is not only imperative that the correct kind and quantity of protein be eaten, but of equal importance, it must be taken at a specific time.

We have found that regular proteins should be taken at breakfast and lunch only. When this is strictly observed the pancreatic enzymes, used in digestion of protein, are used only about 6 hours.

This leaves 18 hours for production of pancreatic enzymes to digest cancer tissue. By mid-morning they are ravenous and have a candy bar, peanuts, doughnuts or sweet rolls with a soft drink or coffee. For lunch they normally have a roast beef sandwich, or chicken fried in "trans-fatty acid" vegetable oil, or a hamburger. By mid-afternoon they are again hungry and have been attacked by low blood sugar, so they perk themselves up with coffee or a soft drink.

Dinner consists of a charbroiled steak, or a piece of roast beef or other cooked meat with white flour gravy and cooked-to-death vegetables. Longo c Michelle Harvie d.
