October — the “Lost Month”
Several of you have been kind enough to ask “Where are
you?” I really appreciate your concern. I’m fine. The
last month has been full of challenges and opportunities
for me. I’ve taken advantage of one of the joyful aspects
of retirement — flexible deadlines.
In late September, I went to Michigan for my youngest
grandson’s wedding. It was a truly joy-filled family
reunion. Two days after I got back, my wife left for
four weeks in Spain with her Mom, brothers and sisters.
In addition to “baby-sitting” our 14-year old, I have been
busy with Red Cross volunteering, Big Brother volunteering,
and a trip to Little Rock, Arkansas this past weekend for
a chorus contest.
So, I’m back at the old stand. I’ll try to get back in the
groove and publish one of these every two weeks or so. I
certainly have plenty of information I’d like to pass on to
all of you.
Thanks again for caring!
Blood Tests — Get Smart About ‘Em
You’ve been having blood tests all your life. But did you
realize that they are full of vital information for you about
Did you realize that your doctor probably has not given you
any of that information — probably because he/she doesn’t
know what it is?
I’ll share my recent experience with you, in hopes that it
may awaken you to some opportunities for prevention and
regaining glowing health and energy.
On September 23rd, I had a routine annual physical. Blood
was drawn. A few days later, I picked up a copy of the
blood test results at the doctor’s office. You don’t do
that? Better start. Here’s why.
Several items on the blood test results were “out of limits.”
Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count, Hemoglobin and Hematocrit were
all low. The Albumin, Serum and Albumin/Globulin Ratio were
both slightly low. The Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) was
12.6. The doctor wrote on the blood test results “Copy PSA
to urologist. Repeat CBC 1 month.”
The doctor didn’t call to discuss the test results with me,
When I had heard nothing from his office about a repeat test,
I called them this morning (37 days later) and rescheduled it
Was I surprised? No. I don’t remember ever having a doctor
discuss blood test results with me. His staff ignoring his
instructions for a “repeat test” didn’t surprise me either.
Remembering an offer I’d had several months ago from one of
my network of experts, I decided to send the September 23rd
blood test results to Cy Bursuk in Tucson, Arizona. Cy is
a true expert on nutrition and blood chemistry, among other
things. He had kindly offered to give me an example of his
blood chemistry “profile.”
The same day I faxed the blood test results to Cy, he faxed
me back an eight page form called a “Bionutritional Blood
Test Profile.” Each one of 33 elements of the blood chemis-
try is described. Both the “Optimum value” and “Optimum
range” are shown, along with a description in plain English
of what it means if that element is “Increased” or
It was very interesting that for all 33 “Elements,” the
“Optimum Range” was much tighter than the “Limits” on the
standard blood test. For example, item #1 is Calcium. The
standard blood test limits were 8.5 to 10.6. My 9.2 reading
was well within limits. On Cy’s profile, however, the
“Optimum value” was 9.9 and the “Optimum range” was 9.7 to
The explanation for “Decreased Calcium” in Cy’s profile said:
“May indicate poor enzymation (chemical changes) of fatty
acids and improper protein digestion in the liver.”
Cy says that the normal blood test limits indicate that when
you are outside them, you have a “clinical” condition — i.e.
something which needs to be “treated” by the doctor, no doubt
with some type of drug. What Cy tries to do, with the 15,000
people he has worked with to date, is to catch sub-clinical
conditions which can be treated and corrected with changes
in diet and supplementation. A very different approach.
Several other items in Cy’s profile confirmed that I have
weak liver, pancreas and spleen function. All three need
support. Interestingly, according to Cy, I do not need
to “detox” the liver. In fact, he said that would just
aggravate the condition. The liver, pancreas and spleen
need “support.” I have taken a three step approach to this.
First, I took Cy’s advice and ordered another blood test from
Direct Labs. See my newsletter article “Get Your Own Blood
Tests” in Newsletter #22, May 2, 2002 at:
The reason for this was that the standard blood test my doctor
ordered left out several critical elements – phosporous, uric
acid, lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), iron and thyroxine (T-4).
Second, I have sent the results of this second test to Cy for
his comments. I am awaiting his response. Interestingly,
two of the missing elements — iron and LDH — were both
well out of limits, both on the Direct Labs more “relaxed”
limits and Cy’s Profile’s more strict limits. The uric acid,
T-4 and phosporous were fine.
Both the iron and LDH numbers seem to confirm pancreas and
liver deficiencies. Interestingly, looking back at my blood
test results from two and a half years ago, I can see that
there is a trend here. The elements which are out of limits
(at least those included in a “normal” CBC) have been gradually
getting worse. I’m awaiting Cy’s comments.
Third, I will visit my local nutritionist, Dawn Blem. Cy has
agreed to consult with her on what I should do to correct my
The good news was the PSA. If you remember, on my first test
on September 23rd, it was 12.6, which is quite high. I have
had readings between 9 and 13 for the past 16 years. I’ve
had four biopsies of my prostate — all negative. I have BPH,
which simply means an enlarged prostate, like most men my age.
On the second test (the one from Direct Labs), the PSA was
6.86 — reduced almost in half from a month before and the
lowest reading I’ve had in 16 years. What did I do? Only
one thing. On about October 8th — 15 days before the Direct
Labs test — I started taking one tablet a day of artemisinin.
It is the 100 mg tablet from www.hepalin.com

Moral of this story:
1. Taking charge of your own health includes understanding
your blood tests.
2. Normal blood tests give you no clue about sub-clinical
problems which can be dealt with before they become disease.
Even if they did, your doctor is unlikely to know how to
treat them — except to treat the symptoms with some kind
of prescription drug.
3. The “normal” blood test your doctor gives you is limited.
Almost all doctors work under the “eagle eye” of an HMO. The
more complete blood tests are more expensive. Draw your own
4. Most degenerative disease (like cancer, diabetes, arthritis,
etc) has given clues in the blood chemistry long before it is
diagnosed by medical doctors. In most cases, it can be headed
off by changes in diet and supplementation.

Feel Better Fast!
I don’t usually like to give you information where I cannot
fully cite the source. I will make one exception here and
quote an interesting message I received recently from a
friend I trust. Take it for what it’s worth. It can’t hurt
you. To me, it makes a lot of sense.
Phil Dyer, a friend who publishes a newsletter, says:
“If you do not feel well, and I would go so far to say for
almost any reason, try this deceptively simple game plan.
Go out of your way to promptly get to saturation of the
following four key nutrients: niacin, vitamin C, water, and
carotene. It is uncomplicated, fast-acting, and very effective
on a wide variety of illnesses.”
Certainly, cancer is one of those illnesses. Here’s the info
Phil is referring to [source unknown]:
“1) GET TO NIACIN SATURATION, which is indicated by a mild, warm,
pink-eared vasodilation known as a ‘flush.’ If you are feeling
stressed, anxious, depressed, worried or just plain ticked off,
Immediately take 100 to 200 milligrams of niacin (not niacin-
amide) every ten minutes until you feel warm and happy. If
you think this will not work, it’s because you have not tried
it. While we’re at it, Some FEARLESS FLUSH FACTS:
If I had a dime for every person worried about the ‘flushing’
they experienced when taking large doses of niacin, I’d be a
rich man. Niacin flushes are harmless. Some people (including
me) enjoy them, especially this time of year, as they are
accompanied with some welcome warmth. Dr. Hoffer says that the
more niacin you take now, the less you will flush later.
Time needed to see improvement: less than an hour.
2) GET TO VITAMIN C SATURATION, which is indicated by bowel
tolerance. That means, take a few thousand milligrams of
vitamin C every ten minutes until you get, or feel like you
are about to get, diarrhea. This will both clean you out and
jump-start your immune system. Vitamin C in quantity is the
best broad spectrum antitoxin, antibiotic and antiviral there
Time needed to see improvement: less than a day.
3) GET TO WATER AND CAROTENE SATURATION. This can be simultan-
eously achieved by twice-daily juicing a big stack of vege-
tables, such as carrots and any green or orange vegetable.
Yes, green as well as orange veggies are absolutely loaded
with carotene. Yes,you really do have to drink it. What are
you afraid of? When’s the last time a person died of vegetable
overdose? Saturation of carotene is reached when your skin
turns a partial-pumpkin,lovely orange-tan color. Called
‘hypercarotenosis,’ it is harmless. Looks cool, too, much like
a suntan. Abundant water intake is guaranteed by abundant
juicing. When your tummy is full of juice and you have to
urinate a lot, you are at water saturation.
Inside your skin, you are an aquatic animal. Water is good.
Veggie juice is better. If you are worried about getting
enough trace minerals, relax. Most are amply found in the
Time needed to see improvement: less than a week.
If you think I have lost what’s left of my marbles, think
again. I have never been more serious. When I work with very
sick people, the first ‘homework’ I give is to go flush, reach
bowel tolerance, hydrate, and turn orange. Sounds preposterous,
doesn’t it. But people who do so feel better immediately. Their
tests improve immediately. And they learn something of lasting
Go thou and turn orange!

If you don’t remember my friend Art Brown, let me reintroduce
him to you. He is a very valuable source of information. He
has a book and a web site chock full of information for cancer
patients. You may want to read my article “Art Brown, Consul-
tant” in Newsletter #18, February 16, 2002. You’ll find it at:
Last week, Art posted an interesting message on a new technique
for curing cancer. It is called “Exercise With Oxygen Therapy”
or EWOT. Here is his message on it.
“…the acronym stands for Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. A person
simply spends about 15 minutes a day on a treadmill while breath-
ing pure ozygen. The oxygen under pressure is what does the
trick, being forced into the body while the exercise circulates
it around. There is a certain O2 pressure required, certain
vitamins to take 1/2 hour ahead of time etc.
People seem to be claiming all kinds of wonderful rejuvenating
effects for this treatment, especially among the elderly. Robert
J. Rowen MD of California, is one of its strongest proponents.
In his former state of Alaska, he was primarily responsible for
getting the USA’s first state-wide laws enacted that protect
alternative practitioners from relentless attack by the conven-
tional medical crowd.
I can’t help but think this type of therapy might be highly
beneficial to cancer patients. It is well established that
oxygen is one of cancer’s worst enemies.”
Here’s more on it from the web site:
“William Campbell Douglass, M.D. highly recommends EWOT. Exercise
With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) is doing light exercise, such as on a
treadmill or stationary bicycle, while breathing pure oxygen.
EWOT produces the benefits of hydrogen peroxide therapy and you
can do it at home. Set the O2 flow at 6 liters per minute, hook
the little tube to your nose, and exercise at a moderate pace
for 15 minutes while breathing pure oxygen. As part of your
cancer prevention and health maintenance program, do this at
least once a month. If you are ill with any disease, do EWOT
more frequently. In particular, do EWOT after operations,
chemotherapy, radiation treatment, x-rays, and burns. EWOT
should be offered by every spa, clinic and health club in the

THE CLASS REUNION
Every ten years, as summertime nears,
An announcement arrives in the mail,
“A reunion is planned; it’ll be really grand;
Make plans to attend without fail.”
I’ll never forget the first time we met;
We tried so hard to impress.
We drove fancy cars, smoked big cigars,
And wore our most elegant dress.
It was quite an affair; the whole class was there.
It was held at a fancy hotel.
We wined, and we dined, and we acted refined,
And everyone thought it was swell.
The men all conversed about who had been first
To achieve great fortune and fame.
Meanwhile, their spouses described their fine houses
And how beautiful their children became.
The homecoming queen, who once had been lean,
Now weighed in at one-ninety-six.
The jocks who were there had all lost their hair,
And the cheerleaders could no longer do kicks.
No one had heard about the class nerd
Who’d guided a spacecraft to the moon;
Or poor little Jane, who’s always been plain;
She married a shipping tycoon.
The boy we’d decreed “most apt to succeed”
Was serving ten years in the pen,
While the one voted “least” now was a priest;
Just shows you can be wrong now and then.
They awarded a prize to one of the guys
Who seemed to have aged the least.
Another was given to the grad who had driven
The farthest to attend the feast.
They took a class picture, a curious mixture
Of beehives, crew cuts and wide ties.
Tall, short, or skinny, the style was the mini;
You never saw so many thighs.
At our next get-together, no one cared whether
They impressed their classmates or not.
The mood was informal, a whole lot more normal;
By this time we’d all gone to pot.
It was held out-of-doors, at the lake shores;
We ate hamburgers, coleslaw, and beans.
Then most of us lay around in the shade,
In our comfortable T-shirts and jeans.
By the fortieth year, it was abundantly clear,
We were definitely over the hill.
Those who weren’t dead had to crawl out of bed,
And be home in time for their pill.
And now I can’t wait; they’ve set the date;
Our fiftieth is coming, I’m told.
It should be a ball, they’ve rented a hall
At the Shady Rest Home for the old.
Repairs have been made on my hearing aid;
My pacemaker’s been turned up on high.
My wheelchair is oiled, and my teeth have been boiled;
And I’ve bought a new wig and glass eye.
I’m feeling quite hearty, and I’m ready to party;.
I’m gonna dance ’til dawn’s early light.
It’ll be lots of fun; I just hope that there’s one
Other person who can make it that night.
