SHOCKING STUDY IN 2016: Chemo Kills up to 51% of Patients within 30 days

cause of death

For decades now, many scientists have been raising red flags that chemotherapy can oftentimes do more harm than good, and in a surprisingly large number of cases, it simply does not work.

Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former Professor of Medical Physics and Physiology at Berkeley, California, studied the impact of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery on the survival rates of cancer patients, and found that instead of prolonging lives, these treatments actually make the patients die almost four times sooner. This was found more than 40 years ago, and yet not much has changed in the way the hospitals treat cancer.

For terminal patients as well, a 2016 study in the peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society CANCER found that living at home instead of being treated at the hospital prolonged their lives by about 45%.

And now, a new study was just published earlier this month that analyzed 30-day mortality rates caused by the treatment itself: chemotherapy and chemotherapy plus radiation.

Cancer Study: Early Mortality Rate Caused by Chemotherapy

The study, published in The Lancet’s Oncology, looked at 23,228 breast and 9,634 lung cancer patients in England.


The results showed high death rates linked to the treatment, increased use of SACTs (systematic anticancer therapies – cytotoxic chemotherapy). The researchers stated it was due “poor clinical decision making.”

“Patients dying within 30 days after beginning treatment with SACT are unlikely to have gained the survival or palliative benefits of the treatment, and in view of the side-effects sometimes caused by SACT, are more likely to have suffered harm,” states the study.

The researchers write that while there a few patients who may have benefited from SACTs, there were too many who were harmed by it, or even killed by the treatment.


In 2014 , the year the study was researched, almost 1,400 patients in England died within 30 days of their first chemotherapy treatment. In some hospitals, the mortality rate was significantly higher than in the others: up to 51% of breast cancer patients died in Milton Keynes (although the number of total patients was small), and up to 29% of lung cancer patients died in Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

“Simply reducing doses of or avoiding SACT altogether would reduce or eliminate instances of treatment-related early mortality.”

The study was done after noticing a clear lack of data analyzing the risk versus gain of using chemotherapy and mortality rates caused by it in the first 30 days of treatment. As the researchers state, this is the first time this topic has been brought up and investigated at a national level.

The “million dollar questions” (or perhaps “billion dollar” since this is the cancer treatment industry we’re talking about) raised by the researchers included: is chemotherapy use still advocated based on small clinical studies — most sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry?

And it has never been fully studied how well it works in a real hospital setting?

Do Most Hospitals Know What They Are Even Doing?

The study points out two problems. One is that mortality rate is high due to poor clinical decisions. Perhaps because in most hospitals chemotherapy is given in a one-size-fits all manner or a fixed-dose with no consideration to a patient’s health history, and characteristics such as weight and age.

In England’s database, it was found that for many patients, the doctors did not include why the chemotherapy was given, and the overall health of the patient and the severity of their cancers was never recorded.

Both of these factors, as the study points out, could significantly change the outcome for these patients.

In America, another study found that doctors gave palliative chemotherapy to terminal cancer patients, and in at least two-third of cases, the patient did not know that the treatment could not cure them, but it only alleviated some symptoms, such as pain.

Knowing that the treatment could not help them in the end, would they have searched for alternative options that may have worked better?

Death Rates from Chemotherapy Are Rarely Properly Documented

The second issue the study found is that mortality rates are hard to analyze because they are not well or properly recorded.

In England’s case, many dates of deaths were simply missing from the national database. Some were documented twice, and the two dates did not match.



In America, the national statistic of cancer mortality comes from the death certificates. This is what the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) along with the doctors use to see how many people are die from cancer, and how many people die from the treatment. Unfortunately, the National Cancer Institute reports “cancer” as the cause of death for almost all cancer patients, regardless of what actually caused it, as pointed out in a 2002 article.

This article raised concern that “cancer death rates are systematically underestimated, in that many patients who die as a result of cancer treatment do not have cancer recorded as the underlying cause of death.”

For example, they studied patients who died within one month after a cancer-surgery between 1994 and 1998, and 41% of these deaths were not properly recorded. The authors write that cancer treatment was the likely cause of death.

“…Many deaths subsequent to 1 month after cancer-directed surgery may be similarly miscoded.”

Unfortunately, even though the study points out that many death certificates quote some condition other than cancer as the cause of death (such as liver failure), they want the cause of death to be just “cancer.” That would lead to further incorrect data as many patients do die from cancer treatments, and liver failure that would not happen from cancer, is often caused by the toxic chemo drugs. But what this study does show us, is that because of a 1999 revision in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), instead of a cancer or cancer-related death, death certificates now have to show the “underlying” cause of each death, such as: thromboembolism (blood vessel obstruction), infections, organ failures, and hemorrhage (excessive bleeding).This leads to improper classification and underestimated cancer death rates and statistics.

How many patients die from the treatment instead of cancer?

That is hard to say until every doctor and hospital begins classifying the causes of deaths correctly. Until then, it is important to keep studies like this in mind when considering pros and cons of starting a chemotherapy treatment.

There are more and more alternative options out there – and for many, they do work. (Just look up testimonials from the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute, or even studies on carotenoids antioxidants derived from natural sources, and even IV curcumin and sodium bicarbonate).

“I think it’s important to make patients aware that there are potentially life threatening downsides to chemotherapy. And doctors should be more careful about who they treat with chemotherapy,” writes one of the study’s co-authors, Professor David Dodwell, Institute of Oncology, St James Hospital, Leeds, UK.

Global Warming and Body Warming Both Caused By Acid!

Global Warming and Body WARMING MAY ALL Be Caused By Environmental, Dietary, Respiratory and Metabolic Acid!
The above picture shows the acidification of blood which causes degeneration of the red and white blood cells, internal blood clotting and chaining of the red blood cells. This condition of the blood leads to light headedness, cold hands, cold feet, forgetfulness, muddle thinking or brain fog, stroke, heart attack, tumor formation and internal bleeding, just to name a few.
I have been studying the acid/alkaline conditions of the blood for over thirty years and have determined that all sickness and dis-ease or body warming is caused by the over-acidification of the blood and tissues.
Scientists have been studying the acid/alkaline conditions at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. Natural carbon dioxide vents on the sea floor are showing scientists how carbon emissions will affect marine life.
Dissolved CO2 makes water more acidic, and around the vents, researchers saw a fall in species numbers, and snails with their shells disintegrating because of the increase of acid C02.
Writing in the journal Nature, the UK scientists suggest these impacts are likely to be seen across the world as CO2 levels rise in the atmosphere.
Some of the extra CO2 emitted enters the oceans, acidifying waters globally.
The only way of reducing the impact of ocean acidification is the urgent reduction in CO2 emissions.
“These same principles of acidification of the ocean also apply to the acidification of our body and the causative reason for the increase in cancer, heart disease, diabetes and all other
degenerative diseases,” states Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist at the pH Miracle Living Center.
“Studies have shown that the seas have become more acidic since the industrial revolution,” states Carol Turley. of the Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
Research leader Jason Hall-Spencer from the University of Plymouth said that atmospheric CO2 concentrations were now so high that even a sharp fall in emissions would not prevent some further acidification of the ocean.
“It’s clear that marine food webs as we know them are going to alter, and biodiversity will decrease,” he told BBC News.
“Those impacts are inevitable because acidification is inevitable – we’ve started it, and we can’t stop it.”
Corals construct their external skeletons by extracting dissolved calcium carbonate from seawater and using it to form two minerals, calcite and aragonite. Molluscs use the same process to make their shells.
As water becomes more acidic, the concentration of calcium carbonate falls. Eventually there is so little that shells or skeletons cannot form.
The oceans are thought to have absorbed about half of the extra CO2 put into the atmosphere in the industrial age. This has lowered its pH by 0.1 pH is the measure of acidity and alkalinity.
The vast majority of liquids lie between pH 0 (highly acidic) and pH 14 (highly alkaline); 7
is the midpoint of the pH scale. Seawater is mildly alkaline with a “natural” pH of about 8.2.
The IPCC forecasts that ocean pH will fall by “between 0.14 and 0.35 units over the 21st Century,
adding to the present decrease of 0.1 units since pre-industrial times.”
Around the vents which Dr Hall-Spencer’s team investigated, in the Mediterranean Sea near the
Italian coast, CO2 bubbling into the water forms a sort of natural laboratory for studying the
impacts of acidified water on marine life.
Globally, the seas now have an average pH of about 8.1 – down about 0.1 since the dawn of the
industrial age.
Around the vents, it fell as low as 7.4 in some places. But even at 7.8 to 7.9, the number of species present was 30% down compared with neighboring areas.
Coral was absent, and species of algae that use calcium carbonate were displaced in favour of
species that do not use it.
Snails were seen with their shells dissolving. There were no snails at all in zones with a pH of 7.4.
Meanwhile, sea grasses thrived, perhaps because they benefit from the extra carbon in the water.
These observations confirm that some of the processes seen in laboratory experiments and
some of the predictions made by computer models of ocean ecosystems do also happen in the real world.
“I can’t count the number of times that scientific talks end with ‘responses have not yet been
documented in the field’,” said Elliott Norse, President of the Marine Conservation Biology
Institute (MCBI).
“This paper puts that to rest for several ecologically important marine groups.”
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) suggests that without measures to restrain carbon dioxide emissions, ocean pH is likely to fall to about 7.8 by 2100.
This suggests that some of the impacts seen around the Mediterranean vents might be widespread.
“I think we will see the same pattern in other parts of the world, because we’re talking about keystone species such as mussels and limpets and barnacles being lost as pH drops,” said Dr Hall-Spencer.
The IPCC suggests that some areas, notably the Southern Ocean, might feel the impacts at lower
concentrations of CO2.
Last month, scientists reported that water with CO2 levels high enough to be “corrosive” to marine
life was rising up off the western US coast.
Bottom water naturally contains more CO2 than at shallower depths. This scientific team argues
that human emissions have pushed these levels even higher, contributing to pH values as low 7.5
in waters heavily used by US fishermen.
“If [pH 7.8] is a universal ‘tipping point’, then it indicates that sections of the western coast
waters off North America may have passed this threshold during periods when this upwelling of
waters high in CO2 occurs,” commented Carol Turley from Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML), who was not involved in the Mediterranean Sea study (PML is not affiliated with Plymouth University).
Organisms such as coral are also damaged by rising temperatures, and studies are ongoing into the combined effect of a warming and acidifying ocean.
Seagrasses were among the few beneficiaries of more acid waters. There is much to learn. And
during the coming week, scientists will announce the inauguration of the European Project on Ocean Acidification (Epoca), a four-year, 16m euro (£12.5m) initiative aiming to find some answers.
Studying the impacts may prove easier than doing anything about them.
“The reason that the oceans are becoming more acidic is because of the CO2 emissions that we are producing from burning fossil fuels,” observed Dr Turley.
“Add CO2 to seawater and you get carbonic acid; its simple chemistry, and therefore certain.
“This means that the only way of reducing the future impact of ocean acidification is the urgent,
substantial reduction in CO2 emissions.”
According to Dr. Young, “ocean acidification is the macro view of our oceans becoming sick and tired and the primary causative factor in global warming. The death and extinction of marine life is the result of this acidification which can be prevented with alkalizing measures.”
“Body acidification is the micro view of our internal oceans becoming sick and tired and the
primary causative factor in body warming or all sickness and dis-ease. The death and extinction
of the human race will be a result of an over-acidification of the blood and tissues due to an
inverted way of living, eating and thinking. This is what scientist have determined happened to the
extinction of the Mayan Race. We can prevent all sickness and dis-ease (cancer, heart dis-ease,
diabetes, etc.) and the potential extinction of the human race by learning how to maintain the
alkaline design of our body.

Is Body Warming Trashing Your Body?

How To Live Beyond 100 Years Healthy and Strong Physically and Mentally! The following article appeared in the Toledo Free Press by Diana Patton on how we create “global warming” or “Acid Rain” from within the body.

We’ve all heard of global warming. Its premise is that the build-up of trash and waste we generate produces toxic gas that is causing the Earth’s atmosphere to deteriorate — which is literally heating up the Earth. What you may not know is that something quite similar happens when trash and waste build up in your body. Toxic acidic fluid forms, causing your body to deteriorate — leaving the body chronically sick, tired and diseased. I’ve coined a new term to describe the phenomenon: “body warming.”

Dr. Robert O. Young, microbiologist, scientist, nutritionist and author of “The pH Miracle” and “The pH Miracle for Weight Loss,” has studied the human body at the cellular level for more than 25 years. The premise of Young’s work is the human body must remain in balance in order to thrive. The balance he’s referring to is your pH balance; pH means “potential for hydrogen.” Your body is 70 percent water. Young says, to be in optimal pH balance, the fluid within your body (your blood) should test at 7.365, to maintain a healthy alkaline/acid balance. Think of pH imbalance as your own personal form of acid rain. But instead of damaging Earth’s soil and lakes and, eventually, the fish, trees and plants that thrive in them, pH imbalance damages your internal “environment.” That’s why I call it “body warming.”

If you are too acidic over time, your immune system becomes severely sluggish. Your endocrine system gets out of whack. Your vital organs begin to shut down, and your bones become brittle. If this acidic state continues, the result is chronic disease, even death. How do we get to a state of body warming? – Too much stress and negative thinking. If you are very stressed and “feed” yourself a steady diet of negative thoughts, you will eventually produce massive quantities of acidic trash and waste in your body. In turn, they produce the toxic “liquid” called acid.

Dr. Young says negative emotions are capable of creating two to three times more tissue acidity than foods or liquids we consume. Tissue acidity results in sickness and disease or dis-ease. – A reversed way of living and eating.

Dr. Young suggests we are polluting our bodies with too many acid-producing activities, among them smoking and drinking too much alcohol. We also produce acid because of our excessive intake of acid-producing foods, such as dairy products, sugar, animal protein, processed grains and junk food.

And, finally, Dr. Young says we lack activity and exercise. Over time, all these factors add up to produce the toxic liquid called acidity, causing “body warming.” But not all is lost. Just as proponents of “global warming” “go green,” we can “go green” to counter body warming.

Here are five easy-to-stick-with tips to help you achieve pH balance and enjoy better health:

1.Change the way you think. List a half-dozen past experiences that brought you happiness, joy and/or excitement. When negative thoughts arise, think of those past experiences. In addition, incorporate more prayer and/or meditation into your life.

2. Try a simple detoxification plan and increase activity. By detoxification, I mean temporarily remove certain foods that cause acid build-up, and sweat enough to release your body’s toxins. For example, replace pasta or bread with extra broccoli portions for 10 days. Increase your activity by devoting 30 minutes a day to build up a sweat; try 10 minute intervals of a brisk walk, jog, a moderate walk or whole body vibrational exercising.

3. Eat more alkaline fruits: Enjoy lemon in your water, grapefruit in the morning and avocados with your salads.

4. Water rules: Drink your body weight in ounces (e.g. 130 pounds of weight is 130 ounces of water). If that’s too daunting, start with half your body weight in ounces and work your way up. And make sure the water that you are drinking is alkaline.

Test your pH every single morning. Purchase pH strips at: When you first wake up in the morning, pull off a strip and test your first morning urine only. The urine color should be no lower than 6.8 but ideally above 7.2. To help increase your urine pH and in turn your tissue pH may I suggest the mineral salts.

The Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine an Abject Failure!

Herd immunity is the clarion cry to press everyone into vaccination. It’s trumpeted by every health agency, in spite of the abject failure of the MMR in both measles and mumps. Even the vaccine’s failure is used to demand that everyone be vaccinated. There is no absurdity too great that it won’t be used to press for forced vaccination.
by Heidi Stevenson
(with appreciation to Hilary Butler’s insight into this issue)
The mumps portion of the MMR vaccine is failing, according to Public Health England (PHE).[1]Therefore, according to the Guardian, they say that all those who are unvaccinated should be vaccinated.[2] Seriously! The PHE says:
[S]ome waning immunity may be contributing to transmission.[2]
So, the failure of the vaccine is somehow the fault of people who choose not to vaccinate!
But the insanity doesn’t stop there. During the recent measles outbreak in Wales, the death of a young man was blamed on measles, though it was later admitted that the cause of death was unknown. Now, though, they’re returning to the original claim that he did die of measles. The reason is that the official cause of death was giant cell pneumonia, which is generally believed to be caused only by measles.
It’s now reported by the pathologist Dr. Maurizio Brotto that he tested positive for measles. There’s a good deal more about this story, though, which we’ll discuss a bit later. For the moment, we’ll simply note that, for some reason, they were unable to come up with a positive measles test until after it was confirmed that he had died of a disease presumed to be cause by measles.

Herd Immunity: Moving Goal Posts

Herd immunity is the belief that, if enough people (or animals) are vaccinated for a particular disease, then everyone is protected from that disease. The problem is that the percentage of people who must have antibodies to provide that herd immunity is a moving target. Over time, the figure has increased. At various times, it’s been believed that everyone would be protected from measles if 55% … 76% … 85% … well, maybe 95% of the population were vaccinated for it. [4]
A 2010 estimate for mumps herd immunity by the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) Dr. Preeta K. Kutty was that 90 – 92% of the population must have mumps antibodies to protect everyone.[5]
Whoops! Wales’ MMR vaccination rate, according to Health Protection England, is 95 percent.[1]Apparently, herd immunity isn’t doing Wales much good in preventing the current outbreak of mumps!
So, although PHE has admitted that the MMR vaccine does not last long enough to produce herd immunity, they continue with their policy stating:
The immunity that MMR gives is probably lifelong. We know that people remain immune for at least 30 years against measles, 23 years against rubella and 19 against mumps.
Of course, that’s just plain ridiculous, so there’s a fair amount of shuffling going on. They would like to change the question, “Is MMR protection lifelong?” to “How long does protection from MMR last?” To that, they want to respond:
Most studies suggest that protection following MMR vaccine is very long lasting. For measles and rubella almost all people (more than 99%) will be protected after two doses of vaccine. In contrast, protection against mumps after two doses is a little lower (90-95%) and appears to gradually decline.
In other words, they would like to issue mealy-mouthed propaganda and pressure the unvaccinated to get vaccinated! Of course, they never even consider the fact that a vaccinated person could come down with mumps and be the first person to spread it around to others. In fact, they have not identified the first person who got mumps in Wales, so they cannot possibly claim that the outbreak was started in an unvaccinated person. But still, they blame the unvaccinated for the outbreak.
So, they just resort to using deceptive language, à la Brave New World—and, of course, blame the people who are actually paying attention and not falling for it, the unvaccinated.

Blaming Measles for Failure to Treat a Serious Illness

The young man who tragically died during the Wales measles outbreak died of giant cell pneumonia, also known as Hecht’s pneumonia, which is usually believed to be an adverse outcome of measles. Therefore, the pathologist blamed his death on measles and stated that he had confirmed measles. This is odd, since earlier, when the health department was coming under criticism for promoting his case, the public was told that they had not been able to confirm measles in him … but there’s more to this case than that.
Hecht’s pneumonia usually strikes only the very weakest and immune compromised, like people with leukemia. It’s virtually never seen outside of such severe underlying ill health.
The young man in question was in very poor health. The pathologist called him, “extremely underweight”. He had asthma, and on top of these problems, he was an alcoholic being treated with a detoxification drug for alcohol withdrawal.
I will not stand in judgement of this young man. No one knows what stresses he had to deal with. Nonetheless, the fact is that his health was far from good. But to make matters worse, it’s difficult to make a case that he was properly treated medically.
This unhealthily thin young man with asthma and an obviously severe alcohol problem went to three GPs the day before he died. His mother stated that he could barely stand. He was simply sent home. He went to a hospital. The inquest found that he had complained of a rash, fever, and hallucination. He was clearly extremely ill—but he was sent home.
And found dead the next day.
What was the cause of death? Measles? Hecht’s pneumonia? Alcoholism? Detoxification? Or could it have been lack of proper treatment by several doctors who saw him? No history was taken. He was not diagnosed with the pneumonia he had. Nothing that the hospital should have done was done. He might have survived if he’d been diagnosed and treated properly, but he stood no chance because the doctors turned him away—sent him home.
But there’s even more to this tale. It’s so very easy to simply say that Hecht’s pneumonia is a sequela of measles, but the truth is that it isn’t necessarily the case. It’s actually an opportunistic disease that can happen only to someone with a severely weakend immune system, such as that described by people with an AIDS diagnosis.[6]
He may have been vaccinated with the MMR, or he may not. His mother originally said that he had been, but the doctors now say he wasn’t—and, of course, blame the lack of a vaccination for his death … though they apparently never considered whether he had a wise GP as a child who determined that his health was not robust enough to handle that vaccination.
So what caused this young man’s death? It’s easy to say that it was measles, but that’s simplistic. The young man’s health was severely compromised. On top of that, his lack of even a diagnosis on entering a hospital so ill that he had hallucinations and could barely stand suggests that the doctors should, at the very least, have acknowledged that his death was largely due to lack of proper treatment.

Who to Blame? Why, the Unvaccinated … of Course!

But it’s ever so much more convenient to blame measles … and then, to take just one more step and place the blame for measles on people who choose not to be vaccinated. And that is, of course, what’s happening. Those people who believe that health is not found artificially in vaccines and are not willing to risk the potentially terrible adverse effects of the MMR, such as autism, are now being blamed.
What they’re saying is that people who have damaged immune systems—even if they’ve done it to themselves—should be protected by forcing everyone else to be vaccinated. But what happens to those people who are maimed or even killed by their sacrifice? Is there any help for them? Do they get medals for their sacrifice?
No. They’re ignored … brushed aside as so much excess weight on society. These people—usually children—pay horrific prices to save the lives of others. Surely they deserve at least a bit of acknowledgment for their sacrifice, don’t they?
And those who suggest that the unvaccinated are responsible for people with weak immune systems also ignore the fact that even the vaccinated succumb to the diseases. They ignore the fact that their vaunted herd immunity has never been shown to work. It’s nothing but a theory, and the goal posts for it keep getting pushed farther out. They presume to have the ethical right to force the risk of harm on some to protect others. But they never explain why those others are more deserving of protection than the innocent child who is sacrificed on the altar of herd immunity.

Detoxing the Liver and Gallbladder Naturally of Acidic Stones!

Cleanse Your Liver and Gallbladder To Help It Take Care Of You

Cleanse your Liver

Cleanse your Liver
The liver is important. We should treat it like our best friend. A healthy liver screens the blood for toxins, viruses and bacteria, detoxifies alcohol and certain drugs, and plays a major part in the supporting the body’s immune system. The liver uses Kuppfer cells, a type of white blood cells, to remove acids, bacteria, old blood cells, and other substances being filtered through the liver.
When the liver is damaged, its ability to carry out functions are compromised like the ability to: remove dietary and/or metabolic acids, manufacture essential anti-acids and proteins, secrete bile to alkalize food, absorb and store vitamins A, D, E, and K, manufacture and regulate hormones, and to remove acidic waste.
The liver can be damaged by recreational and prescription drugs, a build up of acidic toxins absorbed into the body through the skin, breathing, or ingestion of foods containing toxins. The liver is also damaged from dietary, metabolic and environmental acids leading to symptoms, such as hepatitis and cancer. Cancer does not usually start in the liver, but the acids that cause cancer are commonly transported to the liver from the colon, breast, lymph glands, lung, pancreas, and stomach. Our bodies are taxed because of the large amounts of acidic toxins present in the air, our food, our water, and our environment that are absorbed into our bodies and our livers which then reduces the livers ability to clean the blood, and remove the acids that cause cancer, including liver cancer.

Symptoms of a Damaged Liver

  • Fatigue, lack of appetite, loss of energy, weakness, weight loss and nausea.
  • Jaundice: The liver can’t remove bilirubin from the blood, which causes a yellowing of the skin and white part of the eyes
  • Nails become curved and white rather than pink
  • Digestion problems resulting in a loss of appetite, weight loss, and anemia
  • Lighter stool due to the lack of bile production
  • Blood clotting takes longer because the liver’s ability to make the clotting protein, fibrinogen, is compromised
  • The body retains water and becomes bloated because its ability to help the kidneys remove water is compromised

Cleaning the Liver & Gallbladder

First thing, the liver is a wonderful organ. The liver is incredible and regenerates its cells to repair damage and heal itself every 4 to 6 weeks. This function helps us even more in working towards restoring our livers. The large amounts of acidic processed foods, toxins, and stress makes it hard for the liver to do what it was designed to do, clean the body and restore itself in the process. You can help support the liver by giving it a break by eating more raw alkaline foods, removing recreational and prescription drugs from your system, reducing and stopping alcohol consumption, and by drinking plenty of alkaline water at a pH of at least 9.5.
There are varying versions of liver and gallbladder cleanses and the one that I recommend is based upon the New Biology and the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet.
Gallstone blockage in the Gallbladder
Gallstone blockage in the Gallbladder
Biliary ducts in the liver carry bile to one large duct called the “common bile duct.” The liver makes 1 to 1.5 quarts of bile a day, a digestive juice that emulsifies fats. Bile flows from the liver to the common bile duct, where it is then stored in the gallbladder. When we eat protein or fat the gallbladder squeezes itself empty and the bile travels to the intestine. As shown in the picture, the gallbladder and ducts can become blocked impeding the flow of bile which interferes with normal digestion. The build up of gallstones cause back pressure on the liver and cause the liver to slow its production of bile. With the accumulation of gallstones much less cholesterol leaves the body, and cholesterol levels rise. Gallstones are solidified dietary, metabolic and environmental acids which are porous and can pick bacteria, cysts, and parasites being filtered through the liver. These stones become a constant supply of harmful substances for the body.

Cleaning Your Liver & Gallbladder

You should clean the kidneys and the colon before you do the liver cleanse. The kidneys remove liquid waste and the colon removes solid waster. Cleaning the kidneys and colon first will help optimize the liver cleanse.

I recommend to follow the pH Miracle Whole Body Cleanse in Chapter 11 of the pH Miracle revised and updated book for at least two weeks before you do the liver and gallbladder cleanse, because it is more difficult to remove gallstones without removing acids first.
I also suggest to drink plenty of fresh green juice (up to 4 liters a day) made from organic spinach, kale, celery, parsley and cucumber for 2 weeks before the cleanse.  It is important to be on a liquid feast for at least 2 weeks which includes all liquid or pureed green fruit and vegetables.
Since the liver cleanse causes the gallbladder to squeeze itself it is possible that gallstones can become lodged in the opening of the gallbladder. Because of this, it is suggested that the procedure should only be done under the care of a health practitioner.

Liver & Gallbladder Cleanse

picture from


  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil Extra Virgin (The original recipe calls for olive oil, but many people have difficulty swallowing the olive oil without getting nauseous. The important thing is to use an oil to stimulate the gallbladder to contract, so you can use another oil. It is easy to swallow unrefined coconut oil, and sometimes you can drink one to two tablespoons for quick energy. Try using unrefined coconut oil if you have difficulty swallowing the olive oil.
  • 3 lemons or 2 medium size Rancho del Sol pink grapefruits I  recommend grapefruit juice over lemon because it mixes better with the olive oil.
  • 4 tablespoons Epsom salts
  • 3 cups of alkaline water at a pH of 9.5

Purpose of Ingredients

  • Lemon or grapefruit juice helps to dissolve the cohesion between gallstones.
  • Epsom is used to relax bile ducts to let stones pass easily.
  • Olive oil is used the make the gallbladder squeeze itself to push out gallstones.
  • Lemon juice or grapefruit juice is used to cut the taste of the olive and to make it easier to swallow.
Choose a day like Saturday for the cleanse, since you will be able to rest the next day. Take no medicines, vitamins or other supplements that you can do without; they could prevent success.  Eat an alkaline no-fat breakfast. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.
2:00 PM. Do not eat or drink after 2 o’clock. If you break this rule you could feel quite ill later. Get your Epsom salts ready. Mix 4 tbs. in 3 cups of alkaline water and pour this into a jar. This makes four servings, 3/4 cup each. Set the jar in the refrigerator to get ice cold (this is for convenience and taste only).
6:00 PM. Drink one serving 3/4 cup of the ice cold Epsom salts. If you did not prepare this ahead of time, mix 1 tbs. in 3/4 cup of alkaline water now. You may also drink a few mouthfuls of alkaline water afterwards or rinse your mouth. Get the olive oil (ozonated, if possible) and grapefruit out to warm up.
8:00 PM. Repeat by drinking another 3/4 cup of Epsom salts.You haven’t eaten since two o’clock, but you won’t feel hungry. Get your bedtime chores done. The timing is critical for success.
9:45 PM. Pour 3/4 cup (measured) olive oil into the pint jar. Add 5 drops of puripHy to raise the pH and lower the ORP.  Wash your grapefruit twice in warm water and dry; squeeze by hand into the measuring cup. Remove pulp with fork. You should have at least 1/2 cup, more (up to 3/4 cup) is best. You may use part lemons. Add this to the olive oil. Also add 1 scoop of pHlush powder to help break up stones. Close the jar tightly with the lid and shake hard until watery (only fresh Rancho del Sol grapefruit juice does this).

Now visit the bathroom one or more times, even if it makes you late for your ten o’clock drink. Don’t be more than 15 minutes late. You will get fewer stones.

10:00 PM. Drink the potion you have mixed. Take 1 scoop of L-Arginine Max in a small glass of alkaline water which contains L-ornithine to make sure you will sleep through the night.  Take 2 scoops of L-Arginine Max if you suffer from insomnia. Drinking through a large glass straw helps it go down easier. You may use avocado oil and lemon salad dressing, or straight grapefruit juice to chase it down between sips. Have these ready in a tablespoon on the kitchen counter. Take it all to your bedside if you want, but drink it standing up. Get it down within 5 minutes (fifteen minutes for very elderly or weak persons).
Lie down immediately. You might fail to get stones out if you don’t. The sooner you lie down the more stones you will get out. Be ready for bed ahead of time. Don’t clean up the kitchen. As soon as the drink is down walk to your bed and lie down flat on your back with your head up high on the pillow. Try to think about what is happening in the liver. Try to keep perfectly still for at least 20 minutes. You may feel a train of stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles. There is no pain because the bile duct valves are open from the Espom salts. Go to sleep, you may fail to get stones out if you don’t.
Next morning. Upon awakening take your third dose of Epsom salts. If you have indigestion or nausea take 1 scoop of pHour salts and then wait until it is gone before drinking the Epsom salts. You may go back to bed. Don’t take this potion before 6:00 am.
2 Hours Later. Take your fourth (the last) dose of Epsom salts. You may go back to bed again.
After 2 More Hours you may eat. Start with fresh green juice. Half an hour later eat a grapefruit. One hour later you may eat regular alklaine food but keep it juiced or pureed. By supper you should feel recovered.

How To Prevent or Reverse Cataracts

What causes cataracts?

The answer is simple – dietary and metabolic

So what is a cataract?

A cataract is a dietary and/or metabolic acid
that has been buffered or chelated with an
alkaline buffer, such as calcium.

Simply stated a cataract is a stone in the eye.

How do you prevent or reverse cataracts?

Reduce acidity and increase alkalinity.

Women who have higher dietary intake of lutein and
zeaxanthin — compounds found in yellow or dark, leafy
vegetables and green fruits like avocado — as well as
more vitamin E from food and supplements appear to
have a lower risk for developing cataracts, according
to a report in the January issue of Archives of
Ophthalmology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.


Because lutein and zeaxanthin are alkaline buffers
of dietary and metabolic acids.

“The oxidative hypothesis of cataract formation posits
that reactive oxygen species can damage lens proteins
and fiber cell membranes and that nutrients with
antioxidant capabilities can protect against these
changes,” the authors write as background information
in the article. Vitamin E, vitamin C, beta carotene,
lutein and zeaxanthin are all believed to have
antioxidant or anti-acid properties. Lutein and
zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids — yellow or green
plant pigments — present in the lens of the human eye
and may also protect against cataracts by buffering
dietary and metabolic acids.

William G. Christen, Sc.D., of Brigham & Women’s Hospital
and Harvard Medical School, Boston, and colleagues
analyzed dietary information from 35,551 female
health professionals who enrolled in the Women’s Health
Study in 1993. The women were then followed for an
average of 10 years, and the diets of those who
developed cataracts were compared with the diets of
those who did not.

A total of 2,031 women developed cataracts during the
study. When the participants were split into five groups
based on the amount of lutein and zeaxanthin they
consumed, those in the group who consumed the most
(about 6,716 micrograms per day) had an 18 percent
lower chance of developing cataracts than those who
consumed the least (1,177 micrograms per day). The
one-fifth who consumed the most vitamin E from food
and supplements — about 262.4 milligrams per day —
were 14 percent less likely than the one-fifth who
got the least (4.4 milligrams per day).

“In conclusion, these prospective data from a large
cohort of female health professionals indicate that
higher intakes of lutein/zeaxanthin and vitamin E are
associated with decreased risk of cataract,” the
authors write. “Although reliable data from randomized
trials are accumulating for vitamin E and other
antioxidant or anti-acid minerals and vitamins,
randomized trial data for lutein/zeaxanthin are
lacking. Such information will help to clarify the
benefits of supplemental use of lutein/zeaxanthin
and provide the most reliable evidence on which to
base public health recommendations for cataract
prevention by vitamin supplementation.”

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, a research
scientist at the pH Miracle Living Center, states,
“one of the best sources of lutein and zeaxanthin
is from avocado. Avocado is also a good source
of Vitamin E and other healthy oils that can help
reduce the formation of stones or cataracts by
reducing dietary and metabolic acids.”

Here are just a few of the avocado products you
can choose from to increase dietary and
supplemental lutein/zeaxanthin.

1) Freshly picked Rancho del Sol avocados the
day of your order.

2) Cold-pressed Rancho del Sol virgin avocado oil.

3) Low-heat dehydrated avocaodo powder with other
green veggies and fruits.
