Chicken Pox, Measles, Mumps and Whooping Cough are all waiting to encumber little kids. Before turning to Big pHarma to encumber them further, let’s take a look at what they are, how they come about and alternative therapies.
Chicken Pox is a common acute childhood disease caused be a virus. It presents itself by a small sac filled with fluid that will eventually erupt and crust. Each sac will last 2 to 4 days, leaving a pink scar, which will eventually disappear but the pock mark could remain.
Measles is an acute viral infection that is common is kids from 6 months to 5 years old. It starts out like a cold but includes a cough, fever, and inflammation of the eye area resulting in sensitivity to light. Usually the fever goes down within a day or two but suddenly rises by day 5 or 6. With this rise in temperature comes a blotchy rash on the forehead, then appearing behind the ears and the rest of the body. The rash will fade within 3 to 4 days but the skin affected will peel. Bear in mind that during the first signs of rash the symptoms are at a peak. The fever could be strong and bronchitis may occur. In rare cases, the possibility of an ear infection with temporary loss of hearing, possible pneumonia in the bronchial area and convulsions may occur.
Mumps are an acute viral infection characterized by mild fever lasting only a couple of days, feeling really crappy, having a sore throat, and swollen glands. All this could last from 2 days to a couple of weeks except for the fever.
Whooping Cough is bacterial disease with a real crappy cough. It starts out with a mild fever, cold-like symptoms, and a mild cough that gets worse. This illness could last up to a month. If complications manifest, watch out for convulsions and/or nose bleeds.
Unfortunately, all of the above are contracted by nearly all children, but to varying degrees. Some will show little or no symptoms and the results are passed off as a mild cold or cough. Others, unfortunately, will suffer more and become somewhat permanently damaged by the complications.
It’s this individual difference in resistance and vitality that is the single most important factor in understanding and addressing acute disease.
Germs and viruses are always around us and the body is usually capable of maintaining a proper balance when they attack us because the body’s self-defense mechanisms fight back and remove these dangerous attackers before they can take hold.
The secretions form the protective boundaries, the glands act as filters, and the cell walls act as the barriers. So, the entire cell, tissue, organ and body VITALITY act as our protectors.
But, if we let our defenses down through poor nutrition and deficiency, poor circulation or lack of oxygen, the shit hits the fan. Then, if we continue to clog our tissues with too many toxins or change our pH (acid/alkaline balance), it gets even worse and opens the door for infection.
There is no one factor that opens the door to disease for our kids, but rather a multitude of insults on their bodies. And, diet takes the most blame.
The Rockefellers conning the farmers to switch to the petro-chemical fertilizers, under the guise of spending more time planting and harvesting crops instead of shoveling doo-doo, killed the mineral sulfur in the soil depriving everyone of essential oxygen to keep them well. That’s why the organic sulfur crystals are such a wonderful blessing.
The FDA, banning raw, organic, unpasteurized and non-homogenized milk and only allowing liquid fat full of GMOs, growth hormones, antibiotics, and the remains of the other dead, dying, diseased and decayed animals, contributed to the problem.
The Big Food industry, with their processed foods to extend shelf life for years and pushing refined grains, which are anything but normal, added more insult to injury.
It is not a vitamin deficiency that the kids suffer from but a “green vegetable” and a grain in its “natural state” deficiency.
The poor kids are weaned too soon and subjected to 100 percent crapola made up of soda, candy, cookies and anything else advertised on TV or kept at their eye level in the supermarket. Why? Because understanding that the balancing and cleansing effect of fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds is essential for good health, is no where to be found.
Dietary habits are just that. Habits! And where do their “habits” begin? From their parents, that’s where.
If the kid is well-fed, don’t you think he/she will be strong enough to deal with an infection in a successful way? If the child is well-nourished they will likely not catch common childhood diseases, only mild cases. And if something takes hold, it won’t last long because of a strong immune system fighting back.
My daughter, who is in her late 20’s, has never been vaccinated, has been a vegetarian since being in her mom’s belly, and has never had the flu or any of the serious diseases mentioned here. When measles hit her, she had a high fever that was short in duration, she sweated a lot with a good rash formation, rather than having a lower fever, little perspiration, and a slowly developed rash. It allowed her to be over and done with her complaint soon and outside playing again, instead of dealing endlessly with ear problems and bronchitis.
So, the treatment of many childhood diseases is pretty basic. The first priority is a liquid diet of pure water and fresh juices in the acute stages with the later introduction of fruits and vegetables. The fever should not be suppressed, but moderated according to the needs of the child, with gentle hydrotherapy because the establishment of perspiration with the fever is essential. The bowels must be kept open and herbal laxatives or enemas may be needed and the use of herbal medications can prove useful at various stages of the diseases.
The major concern with chicken pox is the pock scarring, which can be modified by simple baths and applications. And, of course, scratching is a no-no.
The bath should be tepid with baking soda or apple cider vinegar. The applications can include green clay, bentonite clay, goldenseal or burdock. The clay will form a barrier and the herbs should be dabbed on frequently. The botanicals can include nettle, fruit juice, vegetable juice, clear vegetable soups, vitamin C and propolis.
With measles the treatment needs to be treated a bit more vigorously due to the fact that complications can likely occur due to nutritional deficiencies, suppressive treatments, or over feeding during the illness. Tepid baths are good and hot baths are good to bring out the rash that has not yet manifested. Steam baths to induce sweating work also. Wild clover is good for cough, Yarrow tea is good for sweat, and 15 to 20 drops of Sundew three to four times a day. For diet, the recommendation is fruit juice lemon juice and Himalayan salt, citrus juices, and vitamins A and C to bowel tolerance.
Mumps looks worse than it is. The general therapy is that of any fever with plenty of fluids and bed rest during the acute stage,
Whooping cough needs the most attention because any cough is extremely disturbing. A light diet is essential because overfeeding prolongs the whooping cough and could cause complications. When it is whooping cough, a full fruit juice fast should be started, with lots of citrus juices. After the fast, follow up with a diet of fruit juices, carrot/apple juice, and fresh clear vegetable broth. Down the road, fresh whole fruits. Vitamins A and C again.
To play it safe, when any of these occur, find a naturopath and keep it simple and natural.

When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.
Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.
After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.
Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.
I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.
So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".
Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.
I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.
But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.
The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.
But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.
So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.
Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.
I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.
Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.
A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.
In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.
My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.
I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.
Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.
The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.
Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
