I am not sure anything specific “went” wrong.  A Major Red Flag was zero testimonials from people that have finished The Unique Healing Program. A Red Flag that I brushed aside. As far as I know there is no one who has completed The Unique Healing Program. At the time after finding UHP I did not care enough to pursue a search for anyone. Some others have and came up with zippo. All I knew was that the basic elements of UHP made sense to me on many levels. Both clinically and personally. The premise was not unfamiliar and very similar to other cleansing programs I have done. The amount of clay and herbs on UHP were much larger. I was willing to give it a gamble, especially since I had done similar things and had experienced positive results. It made sense to me that maybe the amounts of sodium bentonite clay and herbs were not strong enough in these other programs. The other programs were for  much shorter lengths of time.


So where are the people who have finished UHP? Well, Donna Pessin avoids answering questions about any of that. Another ignored Red Flag. A few other people got the same run around. More raised doubts of the long term value of The UHP. So, the bottom line question is this: Was The UHP worth doing for the two years I invested? For me the answer is yes. First off, I had immediate relief from constipation. Second, through my constipation relief I was able to be more stable in all aspects of my life. Thirdly, if I had not found UHP I would not have recognized the value of Kerri Rivera’s Program. I would not personally understand the value of clay. Would I suggest that anyone do The UHP? I would have to say NO at this point. A large part is because Donna Pessin does not have a staff to do what she is unable to.  What is that? Answer basic questions, help with product questions. Donna Pessin needs to be self reflective about what The Unique Healing Program is missing and fix it! BTW, last time I checked she is not receptive to feedback or suggestions. From what I can glean from her mass emails and limited past personal correspondences with me, correspondence with others relayed to me is this: Donna Pessin is NOT interested in being aware of the limitations of her program as it presently exists. Understatement!


The Unique Healing Program videos have made a great deal of sense to some people. These videos fuel UHP product sales. They feature Donna Pessin marching out in front of her video recorder and delivering her message. Very bare bones and straightforward. So what happened? How could something seemingly so simple and direct go so wrong? Primarily, it is a big mistake to tell people to ingest large amounts of Sodium Bentonite Clay when their livers are sluggish. People do UHP because their livers are biting back anyway. Some do okay with it, for awhile anyway. Others do not and feel nauseated from the get go, or very early on. My solution to the liver sluggishness was doing colonics while on The UHP. I had a few other tricks, too. Donna Pessin insisted that colonics were not necessary. Okay, they were for me. My bowels were moving without the colonics. However, I needed help in  dealing with cleansing symptoms that all her “Crutches” could not alleviate. Colonics saved me. More clay is not an answer long term, although on paper it seems to make sense in absorbing toxins. Obviously, it makes sense to Donna Pessin. More clay adds up to large clay sales. I am hesitant to think that money is her main motivation. Through my dealings with her I do not think it is a consciously motivated money making decision. This is harder and harder for some to believe. I may be joining them.


I started writing about The Unique Healing Program because it initially helped me. Where UHP was failing me, I met others, through this blog and FB Support Group, that UHP seemed to be working for. Because of all I just mentioned I continued to write about The Unique Healing Program. I understood that decades of exposure to toxins could take a few years to see a complete healing. All this made sense until I had a solid block of time where I felt my immune system was constantly under siege with no improvement in sight. I began using Chlorine Dioxide / MMS while on The UHP. Chlorine Dioxide – MMS immediately helped with my symptoms. What was lacking in The Unique Healing Program, besides a leader, and taker of her own advice? Yes, I am talking about Donna Pessin. One thing is a strong enough Antifungal agent. Colloidal Silver just does not cut it. I have covered this subject in other blog posts. There is a search box above where you can find them.


Crazy as it may sound the weakest link in The Unique Healing Program is Donna Pessin. For me, her explanation of her own program, in her videos and book, was the initial selling point. Early on in her program it became clear to me, during private consults, that there was little room for change in her approach to problems I was having. Through correspondence with others I learned I was not alone! Anything that more clay, herbs or CS could not take care of was of no to little interest to her.  This behavior created lots of stress for the Client and the Practitioner. No wonder Donna Pessin finally cracked and had to take a “sabbatical” that seems to have no end. She is presently on another “time out”. This one, as of now, may be permanent. We all have problems to face and solutions to create in life. Sadly, Donna Pessin has hit some major rough spots. How she handled these difficulties, as I have said in other posts, is flat out totally unprofessional. The worst is that  I don’t think she cares, or  is aware of what others think about her behavior. Hard to believe, but seems to be true. The  only thing that will change all this is if she feels it in her wallet. With the internet giving Donna Pessin a constant base of new orders I am not sure when, or if  monetary loss will happen. Maybe by the time you read this things will have improved with her and her handling of matters. If that is the case, read some other of my past posts about The Unique Healing Program, there are many. I am sure these posts could be helpful to you in navigating your way through the process of healing. A process that may or may not involve the approaches of Donna Pessin or Kerri Rivera.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi


  1. You nailed it about Donna. Can’t help but start to question after seeing her erratic behavior…would a truly healthy practitioner act this way? That being said following her program for 2 years, I did get some good results…alleviated ferocious Candida symptoms and got me more on my feet, and am grateful for Donna for helping in that respect.
    Am very interested in trying MMS…where can it be purchased?

    • Hey David, Thanks for your input. You can find MMS / CD at They have good prices. You might want to buy the HCL activator. The site owner is timely in returning emails. They have MMS / CD and activator. There is no religious connection to MMS or CD, but you will see it linked to a church due to the FDA and some other issues Jim Humble has had over the years. Appreciate you reading. Mary

  2. Glad I found THIS post. Had read some of your earlier ones praising the program. Just purchased Unique Healing 2. Sounds to me like she has SOME sound concepts. I am thinking of combining the bentonite (which I bought bulk and will put in capsules myself) with other protocols by Dr. Jennifer Daniels. Her’s will address the liver concerns and what I believe will be a much better answer to candida than Donna’s herbs or than MMS. I was turned off to the possibility of trying MMS by what I read of it on Dr. Daniels has a free Candida cleaner report. Her site is I HIGHLY recommend looking it up.

    On a different note, I also don’t like “religion”, but I love God and love Jesus. He came to restore us to a love relationship with God the Father and free us of all our religious attempts to please God by our own efforts. Not trying to start an argument on your blog. What I said may make no sense to you, or may hold no interest for you at all. I wanted to leave it as food for thought, though.

    Thanks for your blog.

    • Hey Laura,

      Thank for your reading, your response and the links you sent me. I fully intend to investigate them.

      I do believe in Christ Consciousness. I admire the behavior of kindness, forgiveness and love that Christ exemplified. Thanks for sharing your your thoughts.


      PS I want to add that, from the beginning, I gave my honest – personal account of The Unique Healing Program. It was not all praise and glory. I recently reminded people that the only way I did The UHP, with any success, was doing colonics, a clean diet and some liver cleansing techniques. I implemented all of these from the earliest days on The UHP as I had done for years before finding it.

    • I am super ill and I am currently seeing a nueralgist I don’t what’s going on with my health but I have peace that surpasses all understandings just like the scriptures say you are so right sister turn to the creator Jesus Christ and while your going through your struggles with your health enjoy perfect peace it sounds crazy but true. Peace out.

      • Well thanks for your words of wisdom. I am not a proponent of any religious organizations. I do most strongly respect the beliefs of all people, as long as they respect the beliefs of others that do not involve harm to others in any way. Peace to you.
