Since I have been part of the Kalcker Parasite Protocol [as featured in the book, Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, by Kerri Rivera] I am often noticing how much easier [and pleasurable] it is for me to breathe. Easier to feel the desire to take some deep breaths throughout the day. It is less and less of an effort, happens much more spontaneously, more frequently.  I am without doubt that Conscious Breathing is an enjoyable and necessary adjunct for any kind of healing. This is true for everyone, on whatever road they are taking to get there. Hope you read the rest.


It is very confusing for some people to hear me admit, especially as a yoga teacher, that I did not find it comfortable, natural, or enjoyable to breathe. Not surprisingly, I found it hard to teach breathing to others. What do you mean you did not like to breathe? Well, it is more of a sense of annoyance when people would bring up the importance of Conscious Breathing in healing. One more thing to remember! What a very telling response. Hello, this one here has spent many days breathing shallowly. The Breath, an amazing gift, is so intrinsic to our existence. Annoyed is just how I felt when Conscious Breathing was reminded to me, recommended, and urged for me to do.  Why annoyance?  Well, it is easy to feel annoyed when nerves are frayed from the exposure to a very unfriendly internal environment. One that is oxygen deprived.


Breathing more deeply is a distraction from what is “really” important, like getting things done. Are you one of those people that feels better for checking one more thing off your “to do list”?  The beauty and release of deep tension from the breath is not understood or felt by most of us who live that way. The Breath is not recognized, or deeply appreciated, as the extremely necessary, invisible life line of energy that it is. We enter the world looking for our breath. We leave the world because it is no longer there, or maybe because it is no longer needed.


It is true that our major way to detoxify, on paper, is through Breathing. Unfortunately, the  condition of our air, indoors and outdoors, does not inspire deep relaxed breathing. Also, the lack of awareness about breathing creates a completely unaware and pretty ignorant population. So much time staring at cell phone, computer, play station and TV screens creates very shallow breathing. The focus is outside of us, not within. Staring at a screen does not connect people to their Breath.  Most importantly, in this world we all live, it is unlikely that deep breathing ALONE can not detoxify an unhealthy body by itself. Is it possible? I would not close my mind to it. What I can say for sure is that Conscious Deep Breathing certainly will expedite the process of any kind of healing. Physical and emotional. Emotional for sure.

I know for damn sure that most people do not know anything about the importance of Conscious Breathing for healing. It is so very important. If you do not consciously breathe you are putting great pressure on all organs and body systems. At a certain point, years of not breathing enough, exposure to  environmental toxin, poor diet, etcetera causes a backlog of toxic waste to accumulate throughout our bodies. At that point breathing is just barely passing as a rudimentary body function. More like sniffing than breathing. A function that is performed unconsciously. Onethat is taken way for granted. Without breathing, quite obviously, we can not survive. To breathe deeply is to flourish. Breathe more often and know you are doing the best you can for yourself  in this present moment.


A Cyclical Detox Program is designed to help the Organs of Elimination work more efficiently. To take pressure off of all Systems of the body. Behavior that once felt normal begins to feel not so normal. The robotic response to do more, think more, buy more, talk more, becomes less helpful. The idea of being in the present moment suddenly makes real sense. It is not only an idea in a book by Eckardt Tolle [ The Power of Now, A New Earth and others]. Breathing is one way of connecting to the present moment that benefits us physically and mentally. Conscious Breathing gives the word “Soul” a meaning you can feel for yourself. Soul is no longer some religious, or spiritual concept. Like Breathing, our soul becomes part of who we are.


Peace Arnold and Dan Brule. I have worked with Peace when living in NYC and on Skype. Peace is a big proponent of the work of Dan Brule.

From a Yoga point of view: Donna Farhi is an author [The Breathing Book] and Yoga Teacher. There are many others. This is a book I happen to like.

Thank you to Kerri Rivera and all the people involved in getting the word about one kind of deep healing. Check out the CD:Austism site to learn more.

Within the study of Traditional Medicines of different cultures, there is a deep and functional correlation between the Lungs and Large Intestines. Learning more would benefit anyone who is interested. The text,Between Heaven and Earth provides insight into the relationship between these two organs. Authors: Beinfield and Korngold.

The Klinghardt Mercury Detox Protocol, as described in this link, succinctly spells out the steps for Mercury Detox. If you are feeling overwhelmed, reading this protocol can help reduce that feeling. Overwhelm is the feeling associated with one more thing to do, often when a person is not in good health. The lightening of this feeling may not happen the first time you read it. The second on third going over will unveil The Klinghardt simplicity. Also, more and more people are realizing that creating better health is a lifetime process. With that acknowledged, the steps in the Klinghardt Protocol have definitley helped me feel less overwhelmed.  Some of the ingredients involved in this Mercury Detox Protocol may be familiar. It is the quality and amounts of the prescribed ingredients that make a difference. All one can do is experiment. The other option is to confer with a Klinghardt Practitioner. Ultimately, we are pretty much on our own, no matter what kind of healthcare or sick-care we choose. If you trust your intuition you are never really alone in any decision making process. I have to remind myself of this often. Anyway, as of right now I am using the Chlorella, Cilantro and Omega 3 aspects of the Klinghardt Program.


I have been aware of using Chlorella and Cilantro for years. I like Cilantro, but I always disliked the taste of  Chlorella. My experience tells me we often do not like what we need, especially in a therapeutic situation. Other programs that I have been involved with do discuss Heavy Metal Detoxification. The Longevity Now Program by David Wolfe centers around it. Some others are the Body Ecology Diet, Andreas Moritz’s Liver Flushes, Dr. David Jubb and Dr Fred Bisci,  and The Unique Healing Program. The Program I am presently involved in is The Kalcker Parasite Protocol. The Kalcker Protocol is presented by Kerri Rivera in her book CD: Austism. As a current participant in the Kalcker Parasite Protocol Program, I am finding that the Kalcker Program has helped enhance the ingredients used in the Klinghardt Mercury Detox Program. I feel less turned off by the use of Chlorella.  Also, the Liver / Gallbladder flushes have never been as effective for me since doing the Kalcker Parasite Protocol. For me it is about 5 months of doing the Kalcker Program as presented in Kerri Rivera’s book. I have done many Liver – GB Flushes beginning back in 1999.


My deduction is that parasites, bacteria, viruses hang out in the Gallbladder and Liver. How do they end up there? The Liver can be described as #The Buck Stops Here Organ. The Liver is a filter for toxins, and it is a protector for the rest of the body. Until those pathogens exit in a way that does not compromise overall health, the “unwanted guests” will remain congesting the Gallbladder and Liver. These stored Gallbladder / Liver toxins will make it hard for other Detox Programs to  be of any real help. These other cleansing modalities may be effective in the beginning, but then that often wanes or comes to a dead halt. Please read about the Kalcker Protocol [CD : Austism]  to understand what is involved.


Biopure and Health Force, from my experience and research, sell a very clean Chlorella. Biopure Cilantro also looks like it is top notch. I am using Herb Pharm Cilantro Tincture. I would greatly question the Chlorella that Mike Adams gushes over. From his website it looks like he is selling it and that could greatly corrupt his opinion. Judge for yourself.

Directions to apply the Cilantro tincture to the wrists, ankles and groin should NOT be discounted. I think it can have a positive detoxing effect. Applying the Cilantro on these areas is part of the Klinghardt recommendations.

A Zeolite Product is often recommended as an absorber of Heavy Metal toxicity. I am using Health Force Drawing Formula. Health Force has a Zeolite Powder, as well. BioPure does, too.

It is easy to discount the power of Chlorella and Cilantro. I have cut my dosage in half, still three times a day. Sometimes only two depending on the day. I did that because I felt the cleansing reation was picking up. A slight metallic taste in my mouth at times. The Chlorella and Cilantro have added to a slight decrease in appetite. This seems to be improving the longer I use Cilantro Tincture and Chlorella Tablets. As I mentioned before, I am presently using Herb Pharm Cilantro.  Health Force Chlorella Tablets is my present choice.

Environmedica [once LL’s Magnetic Clay] has a Mercury Detox Clay that I use and find helpful. How? I feel lighter, more energy, can think more clearly. Do some research on their site to understand what is involved in using their effective products.

Mercury and other Heavy Metals are substances that we are all constantly coming into contact with through our earth, water, and air. Taking action is imperative for better health, for healing. Is the Klinghardt Program the only way to go? No, but aspects of it are time honored with many testimonials. Do some research and find out for yourself.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but no one is going to spoon feed us what to do. It is easy to not fully understand this because if the unhealthy relationship that has been encouraged with “The Doctor”. There is no one to tell us what and when to do things exactly the right way to regain or improve our health. Again, isn’t that what the Western Medical Paradigm claims to do? That was part of the sales pitch for The Unique Healing Program. The UHP had many contradictions. Everything will be just fine if you just follow the instructions was one of them. Even if it takes 5 years of drinking copious amounts of clay.

There are many notyourrawmama posts that discuss The UHP. I have written from my point of view, and from what I have heard from other participants of The UHP.

Since my starting the Kalcker Parasite Protocol my experience has not been without major ups and downs .  I did not expect it to be smooth sailing all the way. Cleansing symptoms and discomfort were there before, for sure. Since starting the PP I have seen and felt some improvements in symptoms. Symptoms that drew me to doing The Kalcker Parasite Protocol in the first place. Please check out other posts where I discuss all of this. There are many of these posts. Just go to the search box at this blog site and type in what you are looking for.


What I have noticed, as I have mentioned in another recent blog post, is that the Liver / Gallbladder Flushes have yielded better results for me since starting the Kalcker Parasite Protocol. Why? Parasites do make their home in the Liver and Gallbladder. The Kalcker Protocol helps to clear them out. This enables the flushes to have a deeper effect. The Liver and GB are less bogged down with Parasites and their toxic waste. Yuck!  Anyway, I found a Blog of Dr. Mehmet Oz that acknowledges  that the Gallbladder and Liver are often home to Parasites. Dr. Oz Blog link for his blog post on Gallbladder Parasites.


If you are not in the USA, Dr. Oz is a popular television host with a well regarded medical reputation as a surgeon. He has an open and curious mind, especially for a traditionally trained physician. He also has a fun and  creative presentation. His show mostly discusses issues that many people have questions about, but feel uncomfortable asking their doctor. Assuming they have a primary care physician overseeing their care. One who is willing to address “off the grid” types of health questions. A doctor who is able and willing to make the time for a dialogue. Time to educate and empower their patients. The chance of this happening is low, partly due to the huge increase in an unwell population.

Through this blog, I hope to  encourage all people to take charge of their own health. If we do not take action it is much more likely that we could end up in a Medical Emergency situation. A situation where someone else will make decisions for us. Steps that may not ultimately be in our best interest long term. On a more positive note, it could be the wake up call that changes our lives for the better. This is not a gamble worth taking.

Dr. Andreas Kalcker and Kerri Rivera: Parasite Protocol as outlined in her book: Healing The Symptoms Known as Autism.

Andreas Moritz: The Amazing Liver Cleanse. Information outside the Western Medical box about healing the Liver and Gallbladder. Helpful to read whether you decide to do one or not. As you may have guessed his books are available on Amazon. Youtube video of Andreas Moritiz on his Liver / GB Flush here. Just take what you can from what he says and discard what does not resonate with you.

If you are involved in a Parasite, Viral – Heavy Metal Detox Program you may at times feel mildly to very unhappy. Other adjectives such as agitated, grumpy, frustrated, angry, disgusted, and just plain down in the dumps. If it helps, you are SO not alone. When making big changes in life, through detoxifying, these feelings are normal. They are part of rebalancing your blood and brain chemistry. Using food, alcohol, caffeine, drugs and other addictive ways of dealing with these ups and downs only makes things worse. Often, the only way to find this out is to go down the road of Self Medication. To return to the same substances that have helped cause and added to the problem. It is called being human. I am not recommending you do that, but it happens. In the beginning of this road to health it can happen more than you may like.


As a child my parents would drive the three of us from New York City to visit my grandparents in Chicago. We would navigate through Pittsburgh, Pa. and get a grim glimpse of the steel mills and railroad yards. It is not a happy sight, or memory. It is a sea of Heavy Metal toxicity. Smokes stacks spewing big gray and dark black wafts of toxicity. How people have chosen to turn a blind eye to the effects of all this is disturbing, sad and angering. Al Gore nailed it,  An Inconvenient Truth is one phrase that sums it all up.


The house I grew up in, I can most certainly say, was infested with Mold. Picture Mold. It is not pretty or uplifting. Dank and musty, very often growing and going unseen due to where it is located. Mold is air born and invisible. The spores entering into the lungs, blood, the large intestines, and skin. Everywhere.


Having lived in New York City most of my life I have most definitely been exposed to Heavy Metals. At this point, on this amazing planet, almost every single person is exposed to Heavy Metals to one extent or another. If you are doing research for someone else on either of these subjects, Heavy Metals or Mold, take a look at yourself and your own exposure while you are at it. This is no joke.


I have written other posts making the point that people are not depressed. People feel depressed. That separation is crucial in order to be sane, self forgiving, and understand others. All of us are carrying joyless, toxic, inorganic Heavy Metal substances in our bodies. Our exposure to them, daily and in increasing quantities, determines how we feel and behave. We are not all the same and that very much involves our MENTAL CONDITIONING as children, and throughout our lives. Examples of mental conditioning, other than the family, is school, religion, the military, organized group sports, gymnastics, and disciplined dance studies. A very short list.

With many people, feeling depressed is not acceptable. This is usually due to a heavy social stigma. Not understanding that feeling down is a natural response in life. Getting stuck there is a problem. These individuals are often able to distract themselves from their feelings by focusing on how sick others are and using food and other substances as a buffer. They have not reached a breaking point. If they have children, their children may have reached theirs.

Please do not identify with feelings of hopelessness. At times, this can be very hard to do. Using strategies from the Klinghardt and Kalcker Protocols are ways to start the process physically. Of course, there are other programs out there. Most that I know of have similar ideas and strategies. Improving general health through lessening of Heavy Metals through strengthening Digestion and cleaning up Elimination. This is not a one shot deal. The way things stand today this is a lifetime commitment. Yes, a lifetime.

The Unique Healing Program is one method to investigate, but I can not recommend this program as it presently stands in structure and direction. The videos have some good information. The creator, Donna Pessin? Well, come to your own conclusions.


Enemas with Chlorine Dioxide, as discussed in the Kalcker Parasite Protocol [Kerri Rivera: CD Autism] are helpful for many. I hear from people that their mood lifts after doing them. This is my experience, as well.

The Klinghardt Protocol, along with the daily steps, has products they recommend. I am not talking about supplements. These products as well as the Klinghardt Regime for Cancer, Auto Immune, Lyme Disease, and other Poor Health Issues address removal of Heavy Metals, Parasites, Bacterial Overgrowth, Viruses. The whole gamut.

Environmedica / LL’s Magnetic Clay for Detoxing Heavy Metal through Clay Bath and Pack concoctions that can be very effective. You will only know if you try.


Do something already! Do something to address your health concerns. Otherwise, you may end up in a situation where you have no control. I have seen it happen many times. It is a self fulfilling prophecy that many have in the back of their minds. Sometimes it is something they just won’t shut up about. This happens either through their words or actions. Take action to change, or life will take action for you. I know this one first, second, and third hand.






Some people are just finding Donna Pessin and the Unique Healing Program, while others are done. Maybe both can glean something from this post.

If you feel like you have been left high and dry by Donna Pessin, you are not alone.  I get feedback from Unique Healing Clients talking about this, and it is totally understandable. Good news for those who do not already know, there is UHP support on facebook. Some good information can be found there to inform and improve your experience. If you are doing well on UHP, possibly boost your results. Some of the information on the forum is not part of The Unique Healing Program as presented in the UHP books and videos. Having an open mind when researching the forum is essential. Also, be willing to search the archives of information on the sight. If you expect responses from the people who are part of this CLOSED group, you may be disappointed. Due to Donna Pessin not being in communication with her audience, people have moved on from UHP. Some are just sick and tired of people not doing their own research through The UHP books and videos. Mostly, disgruntled UHP forum members are disturbed with how Donna Pessin “jumped ship”. However, the monitor and founder of the page is very knowledgable, and does attend to the page regularly.


In an email to her private clients and those who have ordered products, Donna Pessin has shared about a close  family member having an advanced Cancer. Donna did not seem hopeful for their recovery. There has also been a history, for about one year, of Donna experiencing burn out, and taking time off. Time to reassess how to handle things. Sadly, all this was not handled very well by Ms. Pessin. Many people were left feeling abandoned, some hurt, and others very pissed off. The investment financially can be great for someone taking high doses of UHP products. For an entire family to take part is very costly. Many attracted to UHP really depended on DP’s guidance and support. Poof, gone.


Communication is everything with clients, and Donna Pessin has failed in this way. I do not like to using the word failed, but the shoe fits. Having a person (staff) to do some basic damage control would have helped. As of now, and as far as I know, products are still being shipped. Many of us have come to the conclusion that a healthy person would not handle things so badly for so long. What does this say about The Unique Healing Program? About Donna Pessin? Well, it does not look good. For many of us it feels worse than it looks.

Crazy as this has played out, it was her ballsiness that drew many of us to Donna Pessin. A take charge quality that she has not shown in making provisions for her clients. Rudely handled by many accounts, it has turned a good number off. Withdrawing and not saying anything is a form of communication, a very passive aggressive one. At the risk of repeating myself : Hire someone to do damage control. Most clients understand crisis and do have compassion, even if they are hurting.


If I were someone wanting to know more about the experience of others on The Unique Healing Program, I would go to the facebook page and see what is available through the archives. Again, do not depend on the members of the forum to answer questions. Most have no patience for curious”newbies”. No Donna Pessin in the house has caused a loss of interest on the forum. Some have left. The days of getting a quick answer to a question that has already been asked multiple times is over! Many have gathered information through reading the testimony of others, sharing their experience, and the discussions that followed. Check it out.

Best Wishes to all!

Through my personal experience with pain, and with others clinically, I have learned that most people believe that where they feel pain is where treatment is needed. This is not the complete long or short term reality. Immediate treatment on an injured area is necessary and makes sense. Stepping on glass, an oven burn, bitten my an insect, or worse. Still, those situations involve much deeper nerve responses linked to Axions, Dendrites and much more. The smartest people I know do not seem to understand this concept of the origin of physical pain. “Mommy, make the pain go away” ain’t just for children. It takes an adult in pretty bad straights to call out loud for their Mother. War is one example. Advertisers, Big Pharma, and the AMA really understand this. They know our weaknesses better than we do. They know deep down most everyone wants  to be mothered, whatever that means to the individual. Please, just make the pain go away.


Welcome to the world of drugs, also known as Medications. Here in the USA Oxycontin was just approved to be okay to prescribe to children as young as 11 years of age by the FDA. No comment on the FDA from me. They sadly speak for themselves. Okay, incredulous is what I am feeling.

BTW, Pharmacies are often called Drug Stores in the USA. You have to have a sense of humor.

If you have been following some kind of Parasite or Bowel Cleansing Protocol and have intuitive concerns about detoxing Heavy Metals, you may find the Klinghardt Mercury Detox Protocol of great interest. I received this information about this protocol from someone involved with the creation of the Austism CD Program. Some of the ingredients may be familiar to you, and some may not. DO NOT DISCOUNT THE SIMPLICITY OF THESE INGREDIENTS. Especially in conjunction with the CD Austism Parasite Protocol, any other Parasite Protocol, or Bowel Cleansing. The effects of this Klinghardt Protocol can be powerful.


Clay is not THE primary Heavy Metal Detox agent. Other ingredients are necessary for detox. This is especially the case for people who can not tolerate clay, and for those who can. So what does that mean exactly? Well, I am not only referring to those who presently have Mercury / Amalgam fillings remaining in their mouths. This goes for those who have had them removed with the proper safeguards, and those that were not removed with those safeguards. Why? Because most people do not follow, or are not advised to take short and long term steps to detox from toxic substance that enter the bloodstream after the removal of these fillings. These toxic substances are released into our blood, cells, tissues, etcetera during the removal of the Mercury/Amalgam fillings, no matter how well the job was done. Toxins that leach out run the gamut. This, of course, includes bacteria surrounding the Amalgam filings. We can also be effected by other dental work materials (other than Mercury) remaining in our mouths. Just in case you may not know this, chewing, eating hot foods and other ingredients that enter our mouths often cause toxic materials to leach. This means that there is a constant exposure to these toxic materials daily. The real story is that we are all being exposed, on a daily basis, to Mercury and other Heavy Metals within our environment. With this information it would seem that everyone would benefit from some kind of Heavy Metal Detox. I am soft pedaling this warning.

There is so much more to say on this subject. It is complex for a myriad of reasons. One of those reasons is because parasites seem to be drawn to places in the body where fat is located. An example would be the Myelin Sheath surrounding our nerves. When a person does a Parasite Protocol they can often feel more nerve pain. The reason being that the parasites, virus, infectious material is drawn away from where the fatty Myelin Sheath is, or should be. Exposed sensitive tissue is what is left after the infections material is gone, or in the process of leaving. So, often what is left is partially or completely exposed nerve endings where the Myelin Sheath once was, or is in decline. A person may feel edgy, grumpy, easily startled, sharp pain, shooting pain, kind of dull – toothache, numb pain in extremities, etcetera.


Companies such as Remedy Link that make EDTA Suppositories, LL’s Magnetic Clay [ now called EnvironMedica] recommend taking some kind of Calcium Supplement when detoxing from Heavy Metals while using their products. I know there are people who do not look favorably upon taking Calcium Citrate and other inorganic minerals. For decades I was one of these people. Taking them while detoxing from Heavy Metals is a different story. I learned this first hand. This is one of the areas where Donna Pessin and her Unique Healing Program  had some helpful information. Donna has a direct clinical understanding of how Calcium Citrate can work while healing. Donna Pessin understands that Cal Cit and other inorganic minerals do not have to be life long companions to people. For those that it works for, Cal Cit and some of the other “Crutches” Donna Pessin talks about, are way better than using anti inflammatory prescribed and over the counter medications. N’est pas? Let me know.


Eating Sardines, Dulse, Using Sea Mineral, Sea Water, Celtic Sea Salt, Superfood Powders, homeopathics, Blended Salads, etcetera help replenish minerals. Taking HCL with Pepsin for better digestion is very helpful to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. These are  just a few things a person can do to rebuild and remineralize while detoxing.

It can be very easy to use family, friends, job, lifesyle, etcetera as an excuse to avoid the initially difficult changes that are necessary to heal. These changes are ongoing, and impact us in every way. Our belief systems and those around us are greatly challenged. My observation over the years with myself, clients, friends and family is that some people make changes in their lives unconsciously knowing that their relationships may not survive their decisions. On the other side, there are the select few that are able to be  in a completely different “lane” than the people around them. This may be a possible scenario for some to live and thrive in. As observers we think we know why people make the decisions they do. This is a pretty arrogant assumption. I have been more than guilty of this. What I am writing here are repeated observations of myself, and of others. Experiences that people have shared with me over a period of 30 years or more in clinical and non-clinical situations.

Author Carolyn Myss is a great storyteller in her books and lectures. I listened many times to at least one of her books on recording. I strongly remember her sharing one observation about change. A encapsulated version: When a person is presented with a possible lifestyle change both eyes either both go left, right or up. Then they run that change past their “tribe”. They then decide whether they can or can not make that change accordingly. This is the same tribe that supports all our addictions and deep seated patterns. Going against our tribe will cause a whole lot of disruption. The backside of these decisions is often break – up, divorce, loss of friends, relocation of residence. Change of job and career. This may sound scary, but is often extremely emancipating. It is all how we view it.


Do the people making the changes always do the leaving? No. Sometimes people leave those who are knocking over the applecart. They do this by not being willing to open their minds to new ways of living. Remarkably, there are those that are not interested in participating, but are willing to be a silent support. That kind of relationship may be able to withstand just about anything. People have such different needs. Not everyone needs to be surrounded by like minded people. What has saddened me the most personally is the making wrong tendency others have of something that threatens their addictions. By the way, this works on both sides. Understanding fear of change, and of loosing control, can make it easier to accept others choices and move on. Moving on does not necessarily mean leaving, but letting go of expectations that they will join you in the pursuit of healing.

The bottom line, if there is one, is to not see others as being in our way. It is really our fear about changte that creates stumbling blocks. Those fears are legitimate, and facing them is part of the healing process. At least that has been my experience. What is yours?

If you are on a search for information about the subject of improving overall health through healing the gut, there are some posts at this blog site that you may find interesting and helpful.
