I just watched the new video by Donna Pessin about this same subject. There are many variables that can speed up and slow down some people on this UHP journey. Here are a few things to consider:

Stress in our lives such as work, other people : ) raising children, marriage, divorce, all personal relationships, finances, death and sickness in our circles, the “NEWS”, technology and exposure to electro magnetic fields and more. It is how we handle these things that makes a big difference. I can tell you first hand that one year and change on this UHP and I am often handling life stress better, but during that first year I had a tough time. In all honesty, not much worse than  it was before I started The UHP. It is often hard to rewind and remember how things were before starting The Unique Healing Program.

Exposure to pollutants and other variables that we are usually not fully aware of. Don’t focus too much about this one. It can be overwhelming. It does have a huge effect on every aspect of our lives. Living in Beijing, China is a most obvious example of air pollution  and its effect on people and what people are willing to put up with. What many feel they have a limited choice over. I do believe this all is in the process of changing.


I have learned was to lie down and rest. Do nothing except relax and breathe. Yes, it really helps, even for 5- 10 minutes at a time.


I have definitely found that decreasing the amount of clay I was taking was helped by amping up some of the crutches. Helped me feel better and tone down my symptoms. I went from 12-18 tbsp  of clay a day to as low as 6-8. I did hat because I hit a wall and just could not drink anymore and eat. Also, I felt blocked and frustrated. I do use Magnesium Citrate everyday in the evening to help make sure my gut moves in the morning. I think I am going to try going up in dosage with the Clay again soon. Not a huge amount. Keep you posted.

Also, I do know of a few people doing this UHP and doing it at their own pace with 2-4 tbsp of clay, 6-8 herbs, some of the crutches and presently no Colloidal Silver. They seem to be doing okay. Remember, we are all very different and that needs to be understood. We are humans not machines.

Besides the Bowel Strength and Sodium Bentonite Clay, the other crutches that helped me the most were / are the Cal Cit [ just added a bit of Cal Carb to what I am taking], GABA and L-Theaniane and homemade Colloidal Silver. I use the NOW powders for these supplements. Pills are hard for me to consume in large doses. I feel powders are more easily assimilated.

My own experience tells me that  a simpler diet can help most people have less potent symptoms. Wheat, yeast in bread of all kinds, sugar, coffee  and alcohol can tweak symptoms. Sometimes they do not when consumed a few times a weekor on occasion. Coffee is something I can NOT handle well at all and avoid all together. There have been periods on UHP where it was clear that consuming wheat based flour products or any grain was not helping. Time to give it a break.  AT A CERTAIN POINT drinking more clay was not the short term answer for me to feeling better. It may be for you. More Clay has been of help at times. This is where experimentation and patience are key.

Coffee that may work for you and has little acid is something I heard about from a UHP friend. Try to find that info and put the link here. Until then, here is  similar kind of coffee I found online.

If this UHP has taught me anything it is patience, or  how little patience I can have. I think the one thought many of us on UHP or other programs MAY share is – WHY AM I PAYING TO FEEL SO LOUSY? This may not be a conscious thought or one that you may feel is true. Fine, but if you do feel this way, stop,rewind and remember how not so good you felt prior to UHP. As I have written before, things must not have been so good  to even consider drinking clay, eating herbs and all the other things one needs to work towards feeling better without taking drugs or medications. I know drugs of all kinds do not provide long term healing. Long term medication are numbing band- aids.


Also, it is insane that people think drinking clay is insane! What modern medicine asks of  patients seems truly absurd. In the case of Chemotherapy and Radiation the protocol description might go something like this:

We [ the doctors] are going to give you poison. You will very likely feel horrible. These treatments will do some non-repairable damage to your cells and you MAY not live through the treatments. BTW, it will cost a fortune, you will probably loose your hair and look really bad at the same time. This process may involve having some body parts removed. P.S. The cancer may return and we will repeat the whole process over again.

Now that is pretty crazy if I do say so myself. Crazier than The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin Protocol? You tell me.

If you are HIV+ or have been diagnosed with AIDS or Cancer,  I am 100% sure that your digestion is not in good shape. Due to the Immune System being largely contained in the gut, doing anything to improve digestive health can only help your situation. Please read on and know that there is hope for you to feel better whatever form of treatment you are doing.The Unique Healing Program could be an amazing adjunct to any health protocol that is either traditional or alternatively driven. Consulting with the creator Donna Pessin would be a must if you are knowingly dealing with a life threatening illness. Cancer, HIV and AIDS are among the major players. Auto immune illnesses are just as problematic and can become life threatening in a short period of time. This also can greatly helped by healing the digestive system.

The other thing is that even if you do not get onboard to do The Unique Healing Program per se, you can learn a great deal from the UHP videos and books. The more you know the more empowered you will be. One thing that is important is to understand what can trigger more cleansing responses in the body and what exactly that means. This is, without question, something that Donna Pessin really understands. Her understanding and explanation is very different from many other practitioners and can be somewhat confusing at first. Give it a chance.


Somewhere around 1989 I was a volunteer at a place called The Manhattan Center for Living in New York City. It was a center that was designed to help support people diagnosed as having HIV+, AIDS, Cancer and other life threatening illnesses. MCFL was also there to educate and help prevent the spread of a disease that was very new and not understood. Marianne Williamson was on the board of MCFL. MCFL did not last long and those that were devoted created Friends in Deed. Friends In Deed is still very much alive. Film director Mike Nichols, and actress Cynthia O’Neil are two of the primary creators of  this center of healing, love and support for those grappling with their diagnosis, loss of family, friends and so much more.

As a person volunteering my skills at both MCFL and FID, mostly as a Shiatsu Therapist, I met and befriended s number of people. I went to  memorial services and watched members of the dance and theatre, fashion communities, to name a few, drop off like flies. It was a very confusing and frightening time.

Prior to and during that time of volunteering at FID and MCFLI was involved in studying the macrobiotic diet, getting some colonics, acupuncture, bodywork and reading whatever I could about healing. Most of  that information was based on strengthening the immunes system. I was interested in what is now known as Alternative or Holistic Healing. It became clear to me in talking with people who were HIV+ that some  had symptoms, many years prior to being diagnosed, that indicated a weak immune system. Why were some people with similar immune deficiency issues exposed to HIV and did not contract the virus? I was honest enough with myself to see that many of my “minor” maladies were stepping stones to greater sickness. I was vulnerable to HIV, AIDS and Cancer. This really woke me up.

Much time have passed and over the years drugs have been developed that have saved and extended the lives of many people. The side effects of theses drugs are not often discussed openly. This concerns me. AIDS and HIV are not welcome news to anyone and there is unnecessary shame around these illnesses. The drugs for AIDS AND HIV are not sold as cures, but how toxic these drugs are is definitely not stressed enough.  There is a huge price to pay for those who take these medications. However, I have known many people who have gone on to make great contributions to this world and that is due to these medications. Many would most likely say that the side effects are worth it.

I am writing this specifically for those with HIV, AIDS, Cancer and other life threatening medical diagnosis who are looking for some other strategies for healing. A strategy that could possibly compliment what they are already doing. When I first got introduced to The Unique Healing Program and Donna Pessin, at first glance, the focus seemed to be weight loss. Look deeper it is way more than that.

If The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin does not appeal to you, check out The Body Ecology Diet Donna Gates. More information about creating a healthier digestive system and way of eating to heal. The Body Ecology Diet Protocol did not work for me, but it may work for you. I did explore the Body Ecology Diet System for three years and it did not resolve my constipation. I chronicle my path over the past number of decades looking for a resolution for my digestive dysfunction in other blog posts.

Email communications on this subject are greatly welcomed.

This is my experience. I hope those with the persistent symptoms of Candida Albicans overgrowth will consider frequent enemas or buying a home colonic unit. Colonics alone are not the solution. They can help to alleviate symptoms that people incur when addressing candida overgrowth with diet, herbs, clays and other healing protocols. What they can do is help keep a person on candidiasis healing program stay on tract more easily. How? Symptom relief by clearing out the colon of excess waste and acids.


This interview with Matt Monarch owner of the Raw Food World gives some highly pragmatic reasons for colon cleansing link here.

Donna Gates recommends colon cleansing for Candidiasis in her book  The Body Ecology Diet link here.

Andreas Moritz highly recommends cleaning the colon in his book about liver and gallbladder flushes link here.

To buy a home colon cleansing unit from Dancing Cells / Illona Kopacz link here. Illona is a highly experienced, long time colon therapist.

The book, Cancer is a Fungus link here. The idea that Candidiasis is indicative of other very serious health issues is not familiar to many people. I have read about this book. The premise alone  tells me it would be worth reading. Something for those looking for another perspective of how cancer overcomes its host.

Cheers everyone! There is hope!

As a postscript 11/2013: Since writing this post I have discovered The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. What makes this program different is explained on her website and 70+ videos. It is a comprehensive protocol for healing the bowel and all organ systems of the body. I am on this program and it is working for me.  link here.
