Over the past 15 years, for numerous reasons,  I have done hundreds of Liver/ Gallbladder Flushes. The top of the list reason is that I knew my sluggish gut was greatly impacted by my Liver and Gallbladder being bogged down. I could feel that sluggishness impacting how I felt everyday. Of course, I did many other  Holistic therapies to heal my body, and get to the crux of the problem. I chronicle them in many of the 250 posts I have written since 2011. Unfortunately, I was not able to improve the condition of my bowel to any level that I had hoped through the Liver / Gallbladder Flushes, fasting, Colon Cleanses, Colonics, etcetera. Being a colon therapist helped educate me as to the level of digestive dysfunction that so many people deal with on a daily basis. The level of dysfunction that is widely accepted as normal.


Within the past two weeks I have begun using Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD Vitality Capsules. I can honestly say that her capsules aid in emulsifying Liver and Gallstones. Vitality Capsules definitely stimulate the bile flow that is absolutely necessary in improving our overall health. I was NOT  happily onboard to buy these capsules. This is primarily because I have invested so much money, energy and time using other products that did not give me the results I needed. Also, as I read the ingredients of the Vitality Capsules, the combination seemed more laxative in nature. In using Dr. Daniels herbs  I have personally experienced this is not the case. The gut becomes more active, but not MOSTLY due to the herbs that have laxative properties, but due to the activation of the production of bile.

As I said above, I have done many Liver  and Gallbladder Flushes as directed by David Jubb, PHD and Annie Jubb. Also, and most notably, by the late Andreas Moritz. For me Liver / Gallbladder Flushes became more productive while doing the Parasite Protocol of Dr. Andreas Kalcker – Kerri Rivera. Why? I am sure it is because the Liver and Gallbladder are filled with Parasites, Bacterial and Fungal Sludge. Lovely. The understanding of the Parasite life cycle, the New and Full Moon, is the backbone of the Kalcker Protocol. I, and many others I am in touch with, have seen a dramatic release of Parasitic Material be released during The Kalcker/ Rivera Parasite Protocol.

The Liver Gallbladder Flushes can be traumatizing to the body and Psyche. What do I mean? Well, there is a one time consumption of Olive Oil, Grapefruit and Lemon Juice along with some other ingredients that are meant to emulsify stones, trigger the Liver and Gallbladder to relax and release what has most likely been there for a very, very long time. The mention of drinking 4-8  ounces of Olive Oil in a rather short period of time, to most anyone I know, is not inviting. A deal breaker for many. Not everyone finds the Flushes traumatic, but the  cleansing after effects of the Flushes can go on for at least a few days.


My experience is yes. I have personally seen a release of bile, emulsified stones and intact stones leave my body since taking Dr. Daniels Vitality Capsules. I followed the directions and began with one capsule the first day, increasing one more each day. I have seen more bile released since using these capsules than I did when doing full Liver / Gallbladder Flushes. Is this due to the history I have of doing so many Flushes? In sharing notes with two other people using the Vitality Capsules, I am sure that is not the case. Their health history is very different than mine. Most notably neither of them have ever done one Liver / Gallbladder Flush.

So, I have settled on 5 Vitality Capsules per day, for now. I do not feel that Liver / Gallbladder Flushes are a waste of time. I do think these herbs could make them less necessary. The Vitality Capsules would most probably make Liver / GB Flushes more easy going and help in successfully releasing Liver and Gall stones. To learn more about Vitality Capsules and Dr. Jennifer Daniels you can listen to her radio show that is available on Facebook. More important is to read her PDF – The Candida Cleanse .





I am somewhat of a newbie to Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits. So, my experience with using it is limited. I do feel what I say here  may help someone out there looking for information.

There is a very short video that is understated in championing the power of Pine Oil – Turpentine Gum Spirits. I almost did not watch / listen to it entirely because I thought, at first, it was primarily directed toward the “industrial” use of Turpentine / Pine Oil. link here for Natural Turpentine with Dave  Bardin.

As I said, I am new to Pine Oil and at  the beginning stages of personally experiencing what it does. I did buy Pine Pollen from Danny Vitalis, at Surthrival, over 6 years ago. One of the strengths of  Danny Vitalis is his focus and  understanding of the potential of adaptogenic substances. These plants live all around us in nature, and even in more urban environments. An adaptogen, to my understanding, is an immune system strengthener and booster. In order for that boost to take place some internal housekeeping has to be part of the deal. This housekeeping is a house cleaning process that involves our bodies ridding themselves of toxins. The exit points include the skin, most especially if the organs and pathways of excretion are bogged down with waste.


Recently, I have been exchanging emails with someone who is an advisor of the Kalcker Parasite Program / Kerri Rivera, I was told that Pine Oil – Turpentine is mostly for Candida. The way my question was directly posed, and answered, helped me realize that even those who I consider somewhat knowledgeable do not understand that Turpentine is an Anti-Parasitic substance. The above video link with Dave Bardin helps to drive that point home with information about the uses of Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits around the home. In other words “Unwated Guests” are in our bodies, as well as in our homes. The same substances can solve both problems. Dealing with these “Unwanted Guests” can occur in a way that does not up end the ecological balance of our bodies, our homes, our planet.

Diamond Forrest, the suggested place to purchase Pine Oil, has other products made from the Pine Tree. The provider of Pine Oil in Canada is the Balsam Fir Tree. The two owners of Diamond Forrest will probably be able to answer how there products work in keeping a home free of ants, other insects and rodents. Pine Bark may be one. Our internal homes have similar issues as do our bodies. Helpful people at Diamond Forrest.

Do your research on Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits. My short experience with it is showing me it is a powerful healer. Here is one video that gives the basics on how to consume Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits This video is to the point, and informative. The instruction provider guides the viewer back to Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. There are a few interviews with Dr. Daniels on Youtube. She also has a free PDF called The Candida Cleanser, that is instructive as to the use of Pine Oil / Medicinal Turpentine Gum Spirits. If you find you do not like her personality, just try to see beyond her veneer. My feeling is most folks find her likable and engaging.


If you want a quick long term fix – there is none. Period. Medicinal Pine Oil is definitely not a quick fix. There is a back to every front. This is true of all kinds of medicine. However, the back side of Alternative – Herbal – Dietary, etc. Therapies are cleansing reactions. Living out these rough times can lead to a life of non- dependency on Pharmaceutical Drugs and weekly doctor visits as one gets older. Long term use of Prescription, or over the counter drugs, does not lead to healing. I know there are people who believe it does, but their definition of health is different than mine. The bar for health is very low today. As people get older, and some not so much older, the level of our peers health rarely improves. Having cancer is a norm for people of all ages. Even children. The Saint Jude Hospital commercials that flood the airwaves during the Xmas – Holiday season, here in the USA, are a testament to that very sad decline.

Do you believe the body can heal without the short or long term use of Drugs / Medications?  I am not talking about emergency and catastrophic care. I am talking about the drugs that ultimately numb our minds and bodies.  There are many obstacles to healing today. Frustratingly, these obstacles are in our air,water, and soil. It is impossible to not encounter them. With that on the table, I still believe it is possible to heal. I am seeing it in my own body. I am experiencing the benefits of Pine Oil / Turpentine Gum Spirits.





While on my quest to finding ways for living a more elegantly healthy, medication- free life, I have discovered a wealth of helpers. One that I first heard about through Paul Nisson is Moringa Powder Superfood. That was a few to several years ago. Last week, while in Whole Foods, I noticed Moringa Powder, read the label and bought a one size trial pack. When I got home I immediately tried it by placing the contents in a few ounces of water and stirring. The taste, a bit bitter, told me the power of this Superfood. Within a few minutes I felt a lift in my energy. I soon returned to WF’s and bought the larger size. Moringa has proven to be one of my best Superfood purchases to date.


About 15 years ago my husband and I visited a PermaCulture Farm (Cascada Verde)  located on the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, in the town of Uvita. The owner told us to feel free to eat the leaves off certain trees on the property. He said they had a strong medicinal property that helped with digestion and elimination. To get to the point, they did taste medicinally bitter, and they helped improve my digestion and elimination. It was not just the relaxed environment of the farm that got my gut to work better, of this I am sure.


In one interview with Dr. Daniels, she suggests that people can always get an important part of what they need by eating the weeds in their yards. Wow, I guess she thinks everyone has a yard? No, I am sure she does not! But  a person should consider what is being sprayed on that yard, or on the neighboring one.  I guess if one could, or had to, it would be better than what is often available to many in stores. Anyway, when I heard her speak about the power of weeds I thought of Moringa Powder. It is bitter and has that wild-bitter taste that weeds usually possess. Bitter is an important taste in regaining health by cleansing the blood, strengthening the heart, small intestines, liver, and gallbladder.

There are some links to Dr. Daniels on YouTube and she has has a weekly radio show. From what I have read people find them very informative. I have listened to a few and agree.


So, if you do not  feel comfortable eating weeds from your yard or anyone elses. Or, you do not have access to them.  If you just don’t feel well enough, or have the time to go scavenging for weeds anywhere, Moringa Powder is something to try. Also, Parasites do not like bitter. So, if bitter does not appeal to you, or is completely revolting, then it may be an indication of parasites, candida, etcetera having too much of a say in how you feel. All of these entities greatly influence our decisions. This is true in many categories of our lives, not just food. That is a whole other discussion, and something I invite you to think about. It could change your life for the better.

When I asked the late Donna Pessin, as well as some other health practitioners, about how whom we live, exchange body fluids with, where we live, where we work, what we do all day (work) effects us there were some notable reactions. All of which I could completely relate to. With Donna it was a sigh and some nervous laughter. As though I was a five year old asking her where babies come from. In fact, it was that I was hitting a topic of confrontation where no one really wants to tread. Let’s face it, we can only change ourselves, and that is not so easy. If a person is not single and unattached, it is a very difficult task, in some cases not possible, or sensible, to immediately uproot everyone, end a relationship, change work. I am not just talking inconvenience. In most situations behind all this are basic survival issues. Finances are often at the core. The role money plays in our decision making needs to be acknowledged. That is a whole other story onto itself and depends on how honest one is willing to be. Money, and the impact it has on our lives, is something that deeply touches us all.


For any healthcare practitioner, in this case Donna Pessin, this uncomfortable confrontation about sex, money and work is similar to the walking of a fine tightrope. One thing at a time, or you loose a client. You loose the chance to help them, and the income from that client. So, when people are dragging physically – mentally it is easy to perceive everything as a stress. The premise that we see life as we are (feel), and not as it is, speaks volumes of truth. When people are in love, and or are experiencing the initial euphoria of financial success, the world usually appears much rosier. Stress can feel lessened at these times. Our Immune Systems may feel less impinged upon. Life changes are easier when our immune systems are strong. This is not so when we have persistent annoying symptoms, just plain feel lousy, or have been diagnosed with an Autoimmune Illness, Cancer, or a something else.


So, if we are in a relationship with someone who is, or is not, on the same page with us concerning strengthening their Immune System, it is especially imperative to have a plan for ourselves. What to do, and how to move forward. That plan is as individual as each one of us is. I do not have THE answer. I was sadly amused when watching the video with Kerri Rivera, Dr. Andreas Kalcker and Dr. Ruggiero, no one asked them these pivotal question. Not one of them addressed these personal issues. Maybe amusing is not the right word. More like, I guess none of you are going there. However, in all fairness, that video is primarily about Austism at an Autism Conference (2014). The primary audience being addressed concern children, teens and young adults. With all that said, it is an applecart very few practitioners, I don’t know any, are willing to upset. David Wolfe obliquely addresses these issues in his first edition Longevity Now Book, CD’s, and DVD.


Change of relationship, living environment, work are very, very difficult areas of our lives to initiate change. Especially true when energy is needed to heal. Unless the situation is dire, it is hard to make a clear decision when we are not well. On the other hand, loosening – breaking ties and doing something unfamiliar can feel and be a huge unloading of toxic baggage. This feeling of standing up for oneself is sometimes scary, but can be highly emancipating. Finances are often THE deciding factor, at least for awhile concerning change. When people start feeling better, being around other people who are not on the same wavelength can become a their healing and personal growth. Also, you just don’t have much to share on an equal level anymore.

We all make decisions based on fear, loyalty, economics, family, and well being. That is the short list. Probably, the biggest “Aha” moment born from this process is to not judge others for their choices. That alone is one big stress off of our Immune Systems. As unusual an idea as this may sound to some, judging others is stressful. Some people say that there are only two emotions: Love and Fear. Everything else is a spin off of those two. Love is not stressful, but Fear is for sure. Judging others comes under the fear category. I wish I could say I do not judge others. What I can say is that I question my judgements and, when I am conscious, just let them go.  Okay, try to let them go. When life is happening at full speed it is easy to be more reactionary.


I salute, and downright adore the feeling of carefree abandon and freedom. The image of the wind blowing in our hair while riding down that open road in a convertible, or a Harley. That is what the phrase Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll represents in Western culture, and in the hearts and minds of many. So, let the healing begin. With the right intensions good things can happen down the line. The future does seem brighter when we are healthy. When our Immune System has not been delivered a blow that can not be self – treated away, either naturally or through over the counter meds. Still, improvement of health is possible, and it begins with believing that it is possible. Surrounding ourselves with people who also believe it is possible is more than helpful.

Happy Healing to everyone this Holiday Season!





I keep receiving, completely understandable, email questions concerning how Donna Pessin died. Just for now, I want to say two things that may or may not help people who regularly read, or come upon this blog looking for some clarity:

First off, Donna Pessin, in her book generously admitted to her bouts with, and healing from, food (eating disorder), alcohol, and drug addiction. All three of these are big drains on health and weaken – clog up all body functions. Today, everyone’s Liver  is under constant pressure. This is mostly due to environmental toxins that most of us are exposed to. Cleansing the liver and all organs regularly,  even after one has overcome great odds is very necessary. Even more so for those who have had their dance with food, drug and alcohol abuse. Which leads me to….

Secondly, Donna Pessin is very clear in her book that after completing her program one never has to take supplements again. This was something I was not in agreement with, but thought a lessening of supplements might be a possibility. So, if this is what Donna preached it is clear to me that she did not do, what I am sure needs to be done, with  her own health as years went by. Donna did flat out tell me that she did not need her own products. She said this because she had healed herself years ago. I think it is highly understandable that she would feel this way. I also was told by other clients Donna on The Unique Healing Program, through my contact with them via email, texts, and phone calls.


Lastly, just for now, if you look at the later videos of Donna Pessin, she was not looking her best. Drained was more how I saw it. Drained is the open door, or buddy for illness.  Donna’s family has not, as far as I know, made a statement as to how Donna died. She could have had a car accident, or something of that nature. Being highly stressed compromises our instincts and reactions to what is going on around us.

It is a sad and shocking loss. Donna helped many people. I did her program for two years with the help of MMS/CD, and colonics. Donna did not subscribe to colonics. She felt they do not heal. Alone colonics do not heal, but can be a great adjunct to healing. For some colonics are very necessary. Also MMS/CD enemas are of great help to many. They may be necessary for many. I highly recommend looking into them.  Dr. Andreas Kalcker and Kerri Rivera talk about this in length in the book by Kerri Rivera. A link to the PDF is available click here. This PDF was free, but it looks like it may not be any longer.

You are brave if you are looking for alternative answers outside Western Medical box. There is not a whole lot of visible support in the mainstream. Why? A myriad of reasons, but mostly because the alternative to Western Medicine challenges the food, alcohol, drug misuse that is so common today. The new normal. Please know one thing, there are other people like you. They are flawed like everyone else, just trying to find their way. Donna Pessin was one of those flawed people. Thank you, Donna.

I will write more about this. Just wanted to get this out there – please excuse any typos. The Holidays can be a challenge for all of us.





FYI, I began writing this post two months ago. Way before the death of Donna Pessin. Thank you.

Are you one of the many people looking for the perfect healing program? The one that is easy, that makes our lives all that we ever wanted them to be. The program that fills all of our expectations without any fuss or muss? Well, as far as I know it does not exist. Why do I say that? Because being ill, feeling lousy, aching  a bit, detoxing, cleansing are all part of healing [also known as a “healing crisis”]. When feeling crappy while detoxing it is hard to convince people all their suffering will lead to a better state of health. A “Healing Crisis” presents opportunities to fully experience this present moment. How? Well, deep healing brings up discomforts that often have to be faced. It is like peeling an onion to get to the core. Medicating symptoms away, long term, only causes more pain. A Health Crisis can be an opportunity to be in this moment. To fully experience the now. To simply be with the way things are. Sometimes that sucks. Is this a convincing argument for Western Medicine, or what? Doc, Just give me something to make it all better. And make that yesterday.


This is what Western Medicine – Big Pharma – The Doctor – The Hospital is selling: Feel better fast by expunging sickness and discomfort through taking drugs, having pain blocking injections, etcetera. If that does not work surgery is next. That is pretty much what Western Medicine defines as treatment. Well, you may argue that at least a person can feel better now, get out of pain and live life. I honestly understand how that could be very appealing. Unfortunately, for many Allopathic Medicine patients, this is not how things pan out. More often a positive outcome, for Western Medical patients, is not something to count on. This is especially true as the health of each generation declines. When there is a reprieve in symptoms from Western Medical Treatment it often does not last long. Western Medical Treatment, more and more often, is punctuated by a some major health crisis. That crisis may or may not seem connected to the previous one. It is connected in some way, of this I am sure.


At some point people have to pay a price for abusing the quick fix. Pay now with a more Holistic Approach, or pay later with the Traditional Western Medicine way. The price is pretty high either way, but with the Holistic Approach discomfort is part of finding the root cause of sickness, and healing it. The Western Approach can be likened to sopping up a leak without finding out what is causing it. Make it go away, I don’t want to deal with this. That is the mentality of a child wanting their Mommy to make it all better. I get it, and so do the Pharmaceutical Companies. Big Pharma knows the psyche of their audience very, very well.


Again, this post was originally written two months before the death of Donna Pessin.

Donna Pessin often, and very confusingly, talks out of both sides of her mouth without realizing it is a problem. Maybe she is just not hearing her own words being expressed that way. The UHP has at least one thing in common with Western Medicine in one very particular way. AT LEAST! What is it? Ms. Pessin tells her audience that her program will take care of it all. More clay, more herbs and more colloidal silver, plus all her “Crutches”. When that fails to give, the people I hear from on her program, the non-suffering experience she promises she says that one may need to see a doctor. Okay, I am fine with that. Medical intervention may be necessary. However, she claims that there is no such thing as a Healing Crisis. This claim creates feelings of frustration and failure among her followers. Especially when they feel downright sick and none of her “Crutches” work. This may sound familiar to many who have walked the halls of Western Medicine their whole lives. Given false promises to be healed by medications while they eat and drink as they want. If you read The Unique Healing 1 Book you will find it has many contradictions. One of those truly ironic contradictions is that Ms. Pessin does have some information and points of view that can be very helpful in understanding the cleansing process of the body. The irony is that there is so much obviously contradictory information right along side of it.


The Kalcker Parasite Protocol is not a quick fix. One needs to ride it out for at least 6 months to understand the process and follow the directions that are provided. The most powerful strength of the Kalcker Parasite Protocol is the understanding it provides, to those who will listen, that infectious organisms living in the body are at the crux of illness. If you do read Kerri Rivera’s Book [where the Kalcker Protocol is laid out] keep an open mind. Do you believe in your ability to heal? It is possible, even if that is not the message we get inundated with by the Western Medical Culture. Improving quality of health is possible, but the path to healing is unpredictable. The path to wellness is ongoing. True healing involves behavior and lifestyle changes, and that most often takes time to put into practice. For sure.







I am sitting in front of a laptop that I use daily. I do not understand how it works, or many of the components, but I rely on it. It helps me in many ways. There is a long list of things we all use that most of us do not technically understand. We can get pretty annoyed when they do not do what we want. So, I am inviting people who are researching GcMaf to do their due diligence in understanding the instructions before using it. One does not need to become an expert on GcMaf. There are ways to make GcMaf work better and they involve, most primarily, dietary restrictions. Read about them and decide if you are willing to use GcMaf as, I believe, it is intended. If you come from the world of Western Medicine you may view it as a drug that is going to fix everything. I think this is a very big mistake. That is not a realistic approach to anything, and will only set people up for disappointment, or worse.

HERE ARE TWO LINKS TO Gc Maf: click here and here for 1st Pro Engineering. I am not associated in any way with either company.


Some participants on different fb Forums complain about their symptoms after a dose of GcMaf. From what they reveal about themselves, many of them have used Western Medicine in their lifetimes. Some seem to have forgotten the suffering that goes with Allopathic Medical Protocols. GcMaf, as well as other Holistic Protocols, have a backside to it, as does all Western Medicine. The backside of GcMaf  will be made worse by not following the directions, not fully understanding what GcMaf does. Again, NOT complying with the dietary guidelines multiplies the immune system response, and complicates or nullifies the effects of GcMaf.


With Western Medical Cancer Treatment, patients often experience immediate suffering with the use of Chemotherapy and Radiation. Usually there are no dietary restrictions. One can comfort themselves with sugar, alcohol, refined carbs, cake, ice cream, wine.These days Medical Mary Jane is sometimes part of the Western Medical Protocol This is not the case with GcMaf.  GcMaf is like a detective that goes in and finds the root of the issue and smokes it out. Living through that can be uncomfortable. Feeling unwell is often referred to as detoxing, or a healing crisis.

Please take not that there are many ways to find comfort through nourishing foods that work well with taking GcMaf and healing outside the Western Medical Paradigm.

Using Chlorine Dioxide, as written about by Kerri Rivera and Dr. Andreas Kalcker, can be of great help to people using GcMaf and those who are not. Please check out CD:Autism and take advantage of the free download available there of the book outlining this program.

In order to heal it is important to have some support. Whether at home, from friends, and others on the same path. Forums on fb and the internet are ways to get some extra support. Most importantly information. This information must be weighed and measured. Please be aware, if you are not already, that these forums are populated with people that use the internet to gripe, complain and vent their, often hypochondriacal, fears. The combative inner terrain of parasites, viruses, and overgrowth of bacteria are looking for a place to act out. The internet is perfect for this purpose.  This is draining for all of us and does not support healing.
