High Impact Biological Medicine

The Most Potent Healthcare Solution for Everything from Addiction to Cancer

High Impact Biological Medicine (HIBM) is the top shelf tier of holistic medical procedures that deliver transformative results toward health and well being in a relatively short period of time. It a combination of the crown jewel of allopathic medicine; diagnostics, and state of the art and science of organic and orthomolecular holistic medicine which serves to actually repair organ and bio-systems function by removing all routes of toxic exposures, detoxing and then providing the raw materials the body and brain requires to repair itself. The patient participates in a comprehensive treatment program where the he/she is “unplugged” from their daily life for the time period required depending on their condition, to launch and deliver them to their intended health goals.

High Impact Biological Medicine acknowledges and directly addresses both the toxic assault on living beings in a toxic world and addresses the resulting conditions with specific detoxification and biological reconstruction of the human ecology.

Some of the treatments considered HIBM are:

  • Oxidative therapies: ozone, hydrogen peroxide
  • Infrared sauna
  • Intravenous Nutrition (NIV)
  • IV Chelation
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth Organic Diet (SIBO)
  • Proper repopulation of Gut flora

At the very minimum, nutritional therapies should be focused on:

  • Feeding the mitochondria (improves health of all organs through providing those supplements required for optimum mitochondria function- the mitochondria is the energy producer of every cell in your body!)
  • Liver, kidney, skin, & lymph detox support & health renewal
  • Improved oxygen to the brain
  • Resolution of Bacterial Dysbiosis / Candidas Albicans and focus on general GUT health
  • Robust antioxidant support
  • Heavy Metal Detox
  • Radiation detox and protection
  • Chemtrail detox and protection
  • Fluoride Detox and protection
  • Pesticide detox and protection
  • Weight loss (if required)

The unique CORE value of HIBM is that it recognizes and utilizes scientific and clinical evidence that toxic exposures that can begin as early as in the womb diminish reproductive integrity that later, when compounded by chronic exposure to toxic foods and continued disruptive environmental exposures develops into various conditions ranging from addictive biochemistry to cancer.

The toxic environmental exposures we endure from birth on that levy such oxidative stress on our nervous system (pesticides, aspartame, Chemtrails, lead, mercury, fluoride); neuroendocrine system (BPA/phthalates, soy, radiation, hormones fed to livestock); and our Immune and Gastrointestinal system, (GMO and everything you put in your mouth that isn’t supposed to be there including psych and illegal drugs, alcohol, synthetic sweeteners, etc.) are causing the escalating epidemic adverse health conditions of our times. This includes everything from addiction and anxiety to diabetes and cancer.

The bottom line is that toxic exposures and denatured diets are the #1 cause of disease today because metabolizing toxins levies an enormous nutritional tax on an organism that is not getting enough nutrients to provide for repair and replication in the first place. As nutritional stores diminish biological functions diminish resulting in cellular, tissue and then organ death.

Toxic exposures to humans, domestic and wild life are so prevalent and accepted as a true “condition” that there is even a name for it: Body Burden. ‘Body Burden’ the term used to calculate one’s bioaccumulated toxins. In a study conducted by the Environmental Worker’s Group of pregnant women giving birth, whose umbilical chords were tested, various amounts of approximately 300 toxic chemicals were found. And that is a population that is generally taking better care of themselves! And I’d like to remind you, these chemicals were never meant to be coexisting and were not tested for safety in an organic environment such as your body. Meaning they are reacting inside you with each other, causing even graver damage and more oxidative stress than their isolated capacity!

High Impact Biological Medicine is supremely effective for any adverse health condition because it not only provides the best of holistic medicine for clinical body burden detoxification of all body systems and tissues but also focuses on fortifying and replenishing the internal ecology to its divine design, which restores healthy biochemistry thus healing tissues and organs.

High Impact Biological Medicine is an organic science-based medical model which restores that natural biological blueprint of the organism (body) which has been developed during the course of 3 million years of coexisting with the natural raw materials the human body used to develop into what it is today and operate the way it must to survive in its natural environment. Clean air, nutrient dense food, water with robust balance of about 1500 TDS (good minerals) and food intake that matched activity. The HIBM medical model is an orthomolecular, environmental medicine one that thoroughly detoxifies the body to get the nutrient robbing and disease causing toxins out of the body, and restores a nutritionally robust environment within the body and mind so the cells can thrive and do what they do best; repair and replicate.

The fact is, is that various diseases have more in common that you might think. They all have one thing in common and that is oxidative stress. This is caused by toxic overload which causes free radicals; ergo, oxidative stress. Free radicals chemically interact with cell components such as DNA, proteins and lipids, stealing their electrons in order to become stabilized. This, in turn, destabilizes the cell component molecules, which then seek and steal an electron from another molecule, therefore triggering a large chain of free radical reactions. When this becomes chronic the body begins to die – first was metabolic disorder caused by massive nutrient loss, then the cellular damage because they couldn’t get oxygen, food and water in efficiently; and then this progresses into tissue damage which results in organ failure if not addressed before it’s too late. The area (biochemical function or organ) hardest hit or genetically the weakest, will begin to be symptomatic first.

After 20 years of working in Addictive Biochemistry and 10 in psych drug tapers, I began seeing many other conditions go away while my patients were in treatment. The addiction model was so thorough in cleaning people out, I realized that much of their problems with addiction, beyond the cravings created by long term use of alcohol or drugs, was in fact due to the toxic load they were carrying and the symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, and inability to relax it created that they were self-medicating. I began taking clients in for various other diseases, put them on the same clinical detoxification program with nutritional and adjuvant therapies focused on their specific metabolic disorder such as arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease and cancer, and they began resolving their specific health issues as well.

HIBM removes the cause of the dis-ease or metabolic disorder and then restores the internal environment to one that supports necessary cellular functions and healing. It couldn’t be more common sense or simple.

I like to use my petri dish story to help my patients understand the process of oxidative stress which causes dis-ease and the process of repair and replication that causes health and well-being: “If you take a living cell from a nutritionally correct, healthy culture in a petri dish and put it in a dish with any toxin in it, you can watch it literally fray and begin – molecule by molecule fall apart. If you put it back into a healthy culture where it can draw the raw materials it needs to repair and replicate you can watch it literally rebuild itself.” This is a true healing event, not a masking or managing of the condition with drugs.   Managing a condition with drugs, be it physical or psychological comes at a very high price: loss of quality of life and a shortened life.

Remove that which is harming it and give it the environmental (external) and internal (nutritive) support it requires to do what it has been doing for 3 million years… the only thing it knows how to do; repair and replicate. It’s as simple as healing a wound: Healing is a natural course of events when the body is expressing its blueprint operations.

Highlights of HIBM

  • Diagnostics – lab tests to find the root cause of disease and adverse metabolic conditions.
  • Strategy – based on clinical findings and lab results, a comprehensive corrective analysis is performed and HIBM strategy provided to address all findings and deliver the person to Total Body & Mind Wellness.
  • Intensive Clinically Assisted Detoxification
  • Nutritional and Environmental Fortification (targeted nutritional therapy, supportive environment, heart-based healing – the heart is 9 times as powerful as the brain in EMF output which all cells of the body respond to every second of the day)
  • High Impact Biological Therapies evidenced to resolve the patient’s condition.

This strategy results in Orthomolecular Biochemical Restoration focused on returning your body ecology to the “divine design” where healing is a natural product of biochemical events.

Hi Patients, Readers & Fans!

Great news. We have now settled into Topanga and I am deeply engaged in writing, researching and finishing my next book: High Impact Biological Medicine… (not sharing the sub title just yet ;). This is great news because while I develop the chapters, I will write articles about HIBM treatments as well as what is causing the epidemic physical and mental health decline of all people on the planet and submitting them to the newsletter.

This way you can protect yourself and family as well as have an in-depth knowledge about the HIBM options you have to address any condition you may find yourself or a loved one faced with.

By staying tuned and reading these, I guarantee that you will receive the most up-to-date science-based education in cutting edge treatments for TODAY’s physical and mental health issues.

I did not make these therapies up – so no ego medicine here. There is a long and distinguished list of scientists and “old school” doctors – meaning those that were educated before big pharma took over medical schools, who were actually educated and trained in science-based medicine, that left their legacies in their successes and advancements in medicine. Those advancements have nearly been completely wiped out by mainstream media and even via internet access as the FDA and other regulatory bodies harass and intimidate those “in the know” from creating websites that share the real deal and practices in what I call Biological Medicine. Contributors to Biological Medicine were Tesla, Einstein, Pauling, Hoffer, Beck, Rife, Price, Revici… just to name a few.

All I’ve done to add to the body of knowledge that these Greats provided, is practiced them and learned their applications in today’s biologically assaulting circumstances. Such as there was no GMO food in Einstein’s time – nor Pauling’s, so I will cover in the book how to use their knowledge base for your healing from the Gut & Mental issues GMO’s are known to cause. Same goes for addiction and Hoffer’s work, I recognize the many assaults on the body and mind of today that are destroying our own pharmacist within that his medical practice did not address. Reviewing all the toxic assaults and endocrine disruptors plaguing us and initiating Addictive Biochemistry, I have pulled from his and many other scientists and doctors contributions to create an evidence-based comprehensive program that addresses all addictions on all levels.

Unfortunately, there is a long list of toxic exposures robbing you of your health and creating every disease from fibromyalgia to cancer and diabetes to addiction that I’ll have to cover.

However, there is no better time in history to be informed- no matter how frightening nor sad the truth may be.

So I am thrilled to share this information with you because I know it will help relieve the suffering of people during these very health challenging times. I am equally thrilled to finally have the time to finish my most treasured project of the last three years while continuing to care for my patients!

In service we shine,

Be sure to purchase the fluoride filters if you live in an area that fluoridates the municipal water.

Water: So Many Choices, So Few Options

Berkey, The Supremely Best Water Filter

I find myself eerily dismayed by how people can be led to believe that drinking reverse osmosis, distilled or tap water can be healthy.

The fact is; humans evolved on freshwater which is known to have a general total dissolved solids (TDS) of 1500.  This is an indication of mineral rich water. Minerals that your body requires in the balanced bioavailable form that nature has delivered to our cellular structures for millions of years!

Our soil has not been nutritionally competent to maintain our health since the introduction of monocrops.  Monocrops deplete soil minerals in just one year. Hundreds of years of this form of farming have made conventional farming soil nutritionally void.  Senate Document 264 of the 74th Congress, 2nd Session 1936 reported 99% of Americans were deficient in minerals, can  you imagine what kind of shape we are in now? You can read more about this report here:

Pesticides further deplete nutrients (and poison the body) in produce as well as reduce the medicinal value of plants used for medicine.  Add to this the amount of processing and heating to make them FDA approved for on the shelf marketing in stores and you’ve got a recipe for a very poor delivery of a traditional medicine that could have been very helpful if it was made fresh from an organic source in the way it was produced by the ancients.  You are not getting the minerals you need from conventional produce.

You require both plant-ingested minerals from your food as well as sea and soil derived minerals from your water.

Unfortunately, water is the common denominator for every injustice we have inflicted on the planet.  Industrial pollution, agricultural waste, psych drugs, new GMO food pathogens, Chemtrails, radiation, oil spills etc… have all come together to entirely poison our earth’s water.  Bottled spring water is a tragedy for many reasons – costly on the planet as oil is used to make the bottles, deliver them and take them to landfills where they will sit for tens of thousands of years.  And because it is so minerally void and toxic it is also acidic now and you can bet that that is due to the chemical exposures.  Acidic organisms are vulnerable to a long list of diseases ranging from cancer to pathogenic infections.  Tap, most bottled spring water , RO and distilled water (which are all mineral deficient) are also acidic and known to cause the body to leach calcium from the bones in an attempt to maintain the alkaline balance it is designed to maintain.

So in reality, those doctors that are telling you that you should be able to get all the nutrients you need from a well balanced simply do not have a clue about what they are talking about.  Do not allow the denatured media to kill you with false information! Remember, their lights are on due to big pharma, crap food, sugar, landfill, and car sales!

So if you are eating conventional foods and drinking tap or even spring water, you are deficient in vital minerals.

Humans evolved on freshwater. If you look up the scientific reports of what freshwater contains you will find that it is rated as having 1500 Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). This is a combination of seawater (from rainfall) and ground minerals picked up from the streams and rivers that it ran through delivering water for eons to humans.  We developed a need for these minerals as a result of evolving with them. We would look and function entirely different had we evolved as organisms with a different combination and potency of them.

Many people will say, well – I get my minerals from my organic food. While organic is certainly much better, it still does not measure up today to what real food was before the chemical destruction of the planet.  Today, even organic food is assaulted with Chemtrails, radiation, pollution and exposure to other toxic fallouts such as agricultural waste. All of these toxic routes of exposure deplete nutrients in the plants in an era that we need more nutrition to metabolize the daily onslaught of toxic chemicals and pollution we are exposed to!

The bottom line is that you need a healthy dose of 1500 TDS alkaline freshwater every time you raise a glass to your lips.  You are 77% water on a good day so you can only imagine how important the quality of water is to your mental and physical health.

Now, how do you get these minerals and make a well-balanced TDS of 1500 from your alkaline filtered water?  You start with a thoroughly filtered alkaline water source.  I recommend Berkey and so does the prepper and survivalist communities.  Berkey is by far the best filter because not only are the filters themselves superior in getting the bad VOC’s, and other toxins out, they make very effective fluoride filters for those in fluoridated areas and they are approved for use with non-potable water. This means that if you found yourself without treated tap water, you could use spring, river, rain, or lake water and your Berkey will remove all the pathogens!  You can also purchase an extra top tank and make an earthen filter to remove radiation if you ever found yourself needing to do, which is right around the corner for those living anywhere on the west coast of Canada and the US.  All countries anywhere near Japan should be doing this!

After filtering your water with your Berkey, you add a combination of ground minerals and pure seawater to “treat” your water and you!  My formula for what I call “Jesus Water” (a formula I developed to be similar to that of the water of Jesus’s time- before the destruction of the earth’s blood) is two tablespoons of Concentrace Minerals by Trace Minerals Research and 1 tablespoon of pure seawater (Himalayan Pink Salt) brine.  You make brine by putting a few large rocks in two cups of water and let sit over night. Use a chef’s tablespoon measurer (professional one) and scoop it from the liquid.  You will notice that the rocks will not completely dissolve in this much water. That is because they stop dissolving when the water returns to its natural state before drying and is electrically neutral. Meaning it is now exactly how it was 25 million years ago! And pure! Do not use today’s ocean water sea salt! Sea salt is entirely polluted today with radiation, oil, plastics, etc., unfortunately this list is far too long.

Do not take your water quality lightly. Mineral deficiency is the root cause of disease. This was stated by two time Nobel Prize Winner, Linus Pauling.  We are organisms that convert energy to chemicals which are converted back to energy. This process is electrical and entirely dependent on a balanced charge (homeostasis) created by the minerals we infuse ourselves with.  There is a mandatory extracellular and intracellular potency of specific minerals needed for our cells to communicate well with each other, and their cellular environment in order to bring minerals and oxygen in, cleanse and carry on all bio / neurochemical processes of the body. It is useless to drink anything but derived from nature mineral rich water because if you are not, you’re not actually hydrating which is the purpose of drinking water.  To get water molecules into your cells you need to infuse yourself with the correct balance of minerals to achieve the intracellular and extracellular electrical charge that produces ionic exchange.

A good organic, fresh, whole food diet with nutrient rich freshwater is the best way of maintaining the structural integrity of your biochemical blueprint. It is the foundation of your health.  That with exercise, sunlight, enough rest and plenty of hugs is the best insurance you have for a happy and healthy long life!

Dr. Mercola also provides an excellent video debunking the salt scare tactics expressed in mainstream media. You are made of salt and it is necessary for your health. Do not believe the misinformation!  Dr. Mercola gives an excellent history of salt, its health values and the political agenda that started over 40 years ago to scare people.  Remember, this is about true, unprocessed, pure salt in its natural form, accompanied by all the other minerals your body requires- balanced by nature- God’s Pharmacist 🙂

Green Mental Health Care: How to Get Off & Stay Off Psychiatric Drugs

In memory of all whom have been murdered at the hands of someone on psych drugs (including their own tragic suicides), and to help create the change that will ensure these senseless killings never happen again, I have decided to take down all the sales links to my book “Green Mental Health Care: How to Get Off & Stay Off Psychiatric Drugs” and give this ebook away free from this day forward – forever. The Sandy Hook incident has equally enraged me and broke my heart- as well as all the other macabre school shootings- it seriously seems to me that pure evil is unleashed without any restraint. As if the gates of hell are opened up to the eyes of young children instead of a kiss goodnight and a hug. I can not stand by and watch this kind of madness be unleashed on the most innocent and vulnerable without doing something to try and stop it from happening again. If you download this book and it helps you or a loved one, please consider giving even just a small donation to a non-profit that is pro-Green Mental Health Care and against drugging our children. If you need a list of these hard working angels, email us and my assistant will be glad to give you some suggestions.

I promise I will be educating people every chance I get about the connection between psych drugs and these heartless massacres. Here is the link to the book that I wrote to help anyone rich or poor find their way out and reclaim their lives from the chemical torture inflicted upon them in the name of medicine– PLEASE READ IT, SHARE IT AND POST IT every chance you get! You will be helping to save lives as well as humanity from the drug-centric medical system!

The War On Drugs Has a New Battleground –

Your Doctor’s Office

 Genita M. Mason (Petralli), H.H.P., N.C., M.H., Medical Director of The Biosanctuary

The BioSanctuary -High Impact Biological Medicine

The so-called “War On Drugs” has a new battleground – your doctor’s office, where the unholy alliance between the pharmaceutical and psychiatric industries presents a pseudo medical model that inflicts addictive, chemical abuse on innocent victims while lying to the public with sales science and calling it medicine.  Their drugs are nothing more than variations of the very same illegal drugs the government has spent billions of dollars fighting—not because they care about you, only to preserve pharmaceutical sales.  Make no mistake; a drug is a drug—pushed or prescribed.  They are all toxic, and psychotropic pharmaceuticals are far more toxic to brain tissue and the liver; diminishing quality of life, causing multiple addictions and ultimately resulting in disease and death—never health and wellness!  

My life is dedicated to reclaiming lives from psychiatric drugs and exposing psychiatry for what it truly is; nothing more than a gang of white collar drug pushers robbing our society of every resource that supports it right down to our future; the children.  

 As a scientist and licensed practitioner I want to educate all those interested in what is causing the epidemic mental health crisis of today, how to avoid it, how to get off of psych drugs if you are on them now, and why toxic drugs should not ever be called medicine.  

My work is toward a medical model for all mental health issues to be based on patient outcomes and not profit. This is accomplished with Orthomolecular Neurochemical Rehabilitation (ONR) using High Impact Biological Medicine.   

 I wrote the free guide Green Mental Health Care – How to Get Off & Stay Off Psychiatric Drugs because the psychiatric patient with Prozac in his/her medicine cabinet is in even more danger than the crack head smoking crack. This is because the crack head knows they have to stop smoking crack to get well—the psychiatric patient thinks they are taking medicine and that their condition is the best they can hope for—when neither is true. They don’t recognize the fundamental truth that drugs injure the body and mind – prescribed or pushed.  

To sit on the sidelines and do nothing while I watch people suffer from the effects of psychiatric drugs is not an option.  I know what these drugs do to cells, tissues, critical organs and brain function and I can’t just turn my head because everywhere I turn I see more pain and suffering while Big Pharma continues to make bank and control society.  They are literally using our money against us because they use it to force out all the evidence-based holistic options that should be sponsored by public medicine like their drugs are, and they are using our taxes and out of pocket cash spent on their drugs to buy lobbyists in Washington to get their laws and forced medical practices pushed through such as the Mother’s Act.  Come on, the notion of giving an antidepressant to a pregnant woman?  These drugs are extremely harmful to grown adults; can you imagine what they do to the development of a fetus that doesn’t have the functional maturity to even try to protect itself from them?  They will stunt every process of development in that child and already have been shown in numerous studies to cause birth defects.  

 Psychiatric drug use is particularly destroying the youth in our society.  The vast majority of the mass school shootings are done by young adults on psych meds (see  People will say, “Well, that’s why they were on meds, there was something wrong with them” or “They weren’t taking their meds, therefore they went crazy.”  Don’t believe this for a second, kids have been going through all the challenges and discomforts of adolescent bullying, ostracism etc.… since the beginning of time and it wasn’t until our toxic health care system started drugging them that they started taking guns to school and initiating mass murders.  

Psychiatric drugs are responsible for increased car accidents, incarcerations, domestic violence, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, diabetes, cancer, aneurisms, tardive dyskinesia, they are more abused by school children today than their illegal counterparts.  As the damage that these drugs do to the health of our global citizens takes its toll, they turn once productive people into parasites of society as we pay through our taxes for their subsidized housing, health care costs, and SSI/Disability payments monthly.  Is it their fault?  No- after all, they were told to take their medicine to get better—the only fault is that they believed their doctor whose practice is dictated by the  “standards of care” created by a corrupt Big Pharma.  We are all suffering the deluge of destroyed lives by these drugs and humanity as a whole is becoming crippled by them.  I want to help stop the pain and suffering these drugs cause and teach what is causing their symptoms, how to find out what is the root cause, and how to cure it and live this one precious life we all share in the full spectrum capacity they were born capable of living it.  I want to see humanity flourish and witness the beauty we are capable of creating on this planet… I want the planet to be inhabitable by my grandchildren and I don’t want them forced onto drugs for being children.  

Government agencies are now forcing children to take drugs if a psychiatrist labels them with a “mental illness.”  And they are calling those who speak against the government’s toxic health care initiatives “terrorists” and “crazy,” incarcerating and drugging them.  The day I always feared has now seen its dawn; we are losing our right to refuse “medical care”, even with the volumes of evidence piled up that proves it is harmful, toxic and does not deliver its recipients to health.  The people are too fog-brained by and addicted to their pushed and prescribed drugs in their food, environment and medicine to see what is happening and reclaim their lives and the potential of humanity that “God” is capable of.  People are literally chemically lobotomized today and it is a pandemic. 

You are no longer a freethinker if you are addicted to a drug, be it pushed or prescribed, and people are becoming more and more compliant as legal drugs become more and more prolific in our society.  Only someone addicted, misinformed and symptomatic would find it plausible to believe that a toxic drug is a medicine and that that “medicine” has any chance of producing health and wellness.  Big Pharma has done a very good job at creating masses of people who are addicted, misinformed and symptomatic in a very short period of time.  The drug companies now have undue influence over our medicine, standards of care, our government and the FDA.  They have become so powerful that they run our government to the point of using our own police to enforce laws that are unconstitutional that require parents to drug their children if their child is diagnosed with a mental disorder.  Parents have had their children taken away for refusing to give them psychiatric medications!  Yes, our own police officers have removed children from homes because their parents wouldn’t give them legal cocaine (Ritalin)!  

This book is my contribution toward helping them get well and bring them from the dark corners they have quietly suffered in, into the light of health and wellness, hope, and the empowering feeling of being embraced by the love and compassion that those of us have for those harvested by the pushers of toxic “medicine.”  With each person I detoxify and help to natural mental health, I am building an army of healthy environmentalists.  By making the decisions you need to make to get well—starting with the needs of an individual cell to get well, you will by default become an environmentalist helping the planet detoxify and survive as well.  When we discontinue the demand for the products that are making people crazy, we take their power and ability to buy Washington, the FDA, the NIH and their front people, psychiatrists (grants, ghost writing payoffs, schools, etc.) away.  Our medicine and laws will become patient outcome driven as opposed to profit driven and those toxic chemicals that are causing disease, death and loss of quality of life will no longer be pushed upon us and offered at every turn of our head.  

Believe it or not, we live in an era of “harvesting” and people are being harvested by psychiatry for future income. The pharmaceutical companies that are making the laws that force their drugs into people now pave the way for psychiatry’s methods.  Psychiatrists are being sent to grade and intermediate schools to evaluate our children, they are the first “doctors” people being incarcerated see, elderly people in senior homes are being drugged to death.  If you lose a loved one and are sad you get drugged, if you get in a car accident you are drugged, if you have anxiety about finals in college you get drugged, if you are going through a divorce you get drugged, if you’re not good at math you get drugged, if you speak against the government you are crazy and drugged.  Psychiatric medication prescriptions skyrocket for those 65 and older, psych drugs are being pushed on television, in newspapers, magazines and through schools… the unholy alliance between Big Pharma and psychiatry is causing more deaths yearly than any illness if you consider not only the suicides and murders, but the diseases they are associated with.  

The unholy alliance between Big Pharma and psychiatry is literally sucking the life out of humanity and destroying the ability to achieve the quality of life people hope to reclaim when they go to their doctor. Making the decision to get off of psychiatric drugs is not only a responsibility to yourself and family so that you can be present in this life and enjoy quality of life with those you love and who love you, but it is a responsibility toward the preservation of the human race!  

If you would like a free copy of the pamphlet version of my book, Green Mental Health Care -Staying Sane in a Toxic World, please visit  

This article was intended to raise awareness about the true health, social, and economic crisis’ psychiatric drugs are inflicting on every aspect of our lives. This article will be followed by a series of three more intended to provide the many valid reasons you never want to get started on psychiatric drugs; how to identify and naturally heal the underlying physical causes of mental health issues of today; and if you are unfortunately on psychiatric drugs now, my final article Green Mental Health Care, How to Get Off & Stay Off Psychiatric Drugs will provide all the information needed for a safe and sustainable journey to mental wellness and freedom from the bonds of chemical poisoning.

What You Can Do:

  1. Discontinue calling psychiatric drugs “medicine”. They are more toxic than their street counterparts and actually cause more damage to society in all the categories given to the cost of the individual and society as a result of drug usage
  2. Educate your children about the dangers of psychiatric drugs and advise them to never take a psychiatric test at school.        
  3. Practice the five pillars of a healthy lifestyle to maintain good mental health: organic food; fresh, clean mineral water, plenty of rest, exercise and sun daily.    
  4. Remove the invisible crazy-makers from your diet: sugar, caffeine, processed foods (MSG, aspartame, etc.), conventional foods (pesticides are neurotoxic!) GMOs and packaging products that contain endocrine disruptors (BPA, phthalates) such as cans and plastic bottles.
  5. Discontinue use of conventional personal hygiene products that contain neuro and excitotoxic chemicals – use non-toxic organic (you can research zero toxicity products at the Environmental Worker’s Group website Transdermal and oral contact with toxic chemicals go directly to the blood stream and can cause mental health symptoms – especially in the chemically sensitive.

The Invisible Crazy Makers

How Our Toxic Environment Affects Mental Health

Genita M. Mason, H.H.P., N.C., M.H., Nutritional Biochemist and Medical Director of The BioSanctuary Detox & Health Spa

In my previous article, The War on Drugs has a New Battleground: Your Doctor’s Office, I pointed out the destructive influence that psychiatric drugs have on your body, brain /mind as well as on the environment and community we live in being responsible for a significant percentage of violent crimes such as murder, aggravated assault, home invasions and nearly all school shootings; suicide, car accidents, domestic violence calls and the decline of productive citizens due to the disabilities they cause.

It certainly wouldn’t be fair to expose this enormous problem that is tearing away at the very fabric of humanity and that we are all affected by without providing solutions to minimize and hopefully one day extinguish it permanently. These solutions would have to of course relieve the cause of the symptoms that send people to psychiatrists and doctors who will prescribe psychiatric drugs as opposed to utilizing the brilliant capacities of western medicine’s diagnostic tools to help them identify the root cause of their symptoms and heal the condition.

While there is no truly scientific empirical evidence to prove that BiPolar exists or any of the other labels given as a result of subjective diagnosis used only to justify prescribing drugs, there is certainly an epidemic of adverse mental health symptoms today and there is one very prominent reason why: the toxic food and water we ingest and environment we live in. So this article will focus on what I call, the invisible crazy makers; the neurotoxic and endocrine disrupting chemicals in our food, water, air, and soil that are robbing millions of people of their mental health and landing them in psychiatrists offices in droves. It is my hope that once people know how harmful they are they will begin to practice environmental hygiene and protect their bodies and minds from these substances so that they can reclaim good mental and physical health. At Shangri-La, we call this Green Mental Health Care. To give an example, if a patient were to go to a doctor complaining of profound mood swings and frequent agitation, they would most likely be labeled “Bipolar” and given a toxic cocktail of drugs to mask the symptoms. However, a more productive and ethical medical practice and one that produces far better patient outcomes at a fraction of the cost would be to run metabolic and functional lab tests – in addition to many possibilities two specific areas of concern given today’s world would be toxic bioaccumulation of neurotoxic excitatory and endocrine disrupting chemicals in our food and water, and blood sugar and adrenal function. Adrenal fatigue alone can cause extreme mood swings and when you combine that with aspartame, or caffeine and a processed food diet promoting blood sugar dysregulation you have a good case for mood swings and many other adverse mental health symptoms. There are very well established and successful ways of responding to these adrenal fatigue, blood sugar management and malnutrition psychosis (caused by nutritionally inadequate, processed food diet) which would relieve the mental symptoms via healing the physical underlying cause. And yes, many people today with full bellies are suffering from malnutrition psychosis! Given the toxic load of many processed foods and chemically contaminated water, people are ingesting products that can actually take more nutrition to detox and metabolize than they provide the body!

The next installment in this series will focus on how to detoxify thoroughly from each category of toxic assault below and then after that I will discuss how to get off of psychiatric drugs safely and with minimal transitional discomfort if you are already on them. However, contained herein is the information you need to get started right away on the path to living life in the capacity you were born capable of living it – thriving!

Most everyone knows that the majority of the chemicals in this article are linked to every cancer imaginable as well as other life threatening diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, obesity, fibromyalgia, lupus, liver and heart disease but few are aware of their impact on mental health and that is what this article is to shed light on. Please keep in mind as you educate yourself about these highly toxic chemical bullets that I am only exposing their adverse effects on mental health, however, they should be avoided for many other life and quality of life threatening reasons. I urge women of child bearing age, pregnant women and new parents to truly become Invisible Crazy Maker Police to provide the best developmental environment for your children and protect them from the mental and physical suffering these chemicals cause.

I would like to note here that exposure to neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors can create addictive biochemistry as well and be the root cause of addiction to any legal / illegal drug or alcohol. When a person is chronically symptomatic psychologically, physically or emotionally they will reach out for relief. It is human nature. One must find the root cause of the symptoms, which is most of the time toxicity – diet and environment related and remove the cause of the symptoms to correct the metabolism and heal addiction. Remember, a drug is a drug under the skin – the body does not care if man has legalized it, it is still toxic and it will be destructive to the biochemical processes that sustain life- your life. All drugs carry a very high risk potential for disease, and they ALL take away from quality of life.

The Invisible Crazy Makers – Identified!

Primary Routes of Human Toxic Exposure:
GI / intestines (food, water, drugs (including “medications”)

Types of toxic chemicals with significant impact on mental health:

A neurotoxin is an organic or synthetic substance that destroys neurons – cells of the brain and nervous system

An endocrine disruptor is an organic or synthetic substance that disrupts or harms the endocrine glands (heart, adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, sex glands, pancreas) that produce the hormones your body requires for instructions on how to function both mentally and physically.

Most Common Neurotoxic and Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in our Environment & their sources:

Pesticides – All conventional foods and many water sources
Hormones, drugs, antibiotics ~ Conventionally raised meats
MSG, Aspartame, Sugar, and 2000+ other Food Chemicals – Processed foods
GMOs ~ Conventionally grown produce, meat and processed foods
Artificial Sweeteners (aspartame)~ Processed foods, candy, gum, baked goods ~ They are everywhere!
Fluoride, Chlorine, Psychiatric Drugs, Chromium-6 ~ Tap water
Bisphenol-A, Parabens & Phthalates ~ Food & water containers are the major source, however, these endocrine disruptors can be found in children’s toys, common household wares, most anything plastic.
Mercury /Heavy Metals ~ vaccines, amalgam tooth fillings, high fructose corn syrup, fish, nose sprays, eye drops, cosmetics ~ mercury is showing up in more and more places – makes one wonder how is it getting there?
Mold and Fungus ~ Airborne

Where are the Invisible Crazy Makers & What do They Do?

When pesticides were first tested for safety and toxicity the focus was on their cancer causing potential (most of them are very carcinogenic). Evaluation of the extent of their neurotoxicity – or potential to cause nervous system and brain tissue damage and safety for use under that umbrella of consideration was really not given much attention. Today we have epidemic anxiety, panic attacks, ADD, and depression as well as hyperactivity and deterioration of mental functions as a result of their accumulative effects. Pesticides are only now beginning to get the real scrutiny they deserve for their neurotoxic properties and contribution to epidemic mental health symptoms that were rarely heard of, especially in children just 50 years ago.
It was clearly the monied power of the chemical companies that got approval for neurotoxic chemicals that were used in bio-warfare tactics to subdue the enemy to be repackaged as pesticides and added to the foods you eat today.
The descriptions of the four most common classes of pesticides are cited from the Environmental Protection Agency’s website – this is not pissed-off hippie stuff, this is straight out of official government documents – although I am one very pissed off hippie!

Neurotoxicity of Pesticides Used on YOUR Food that Cause Adverse Brain Function Abnormalities, & Adverse Mood, Focus, Intellectual and Behavioral Changes

Organophosphate Pesticides – Organophosphate and carbamate pesticides act primarily at the synapses, altering the regulation of the transmission of the signal from one cell to the next. These pesticides affect the nervous system by disrupting the enzyme that regulates acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Most organophosphates are insecticides. They were developed during the early 19th century, but their effects on insects, which are nearly identical to their effects on humans, were discovered in 1932. Some are very poisonous (they were used in World War II as nerve agents).
Organophosphates kill insects by interfering with cholinesterase, an enzyme required for the proper functioning of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine regulates nerve cell communications. Organophosphates inhibit cholinesterase to cause toxic levels of acetylcholine which creates the continual cell firing which results in death of the neuron. Inhibiting enough cholinesterase can cause paralysis and numbing. Organophosphates deregulate acetylcholine neurotransmitters and damage dopamine receptors which is a big contributor in the learning disabilities children are given drugs for today. Also, since acetylcholine facilitates nerve communications in the brain and is responsible for helping to build neuro-nets of memory during study, it is likely that their incineration by over-toxicity is going to cause loss of neurochemical communications involved in learning and retaining information. When you learn, you create neuro-nets made of neurons that retain that information. If you can’t retain that information because you are constantly killing the cells as well as inhibiting new cells from developing, it is going to be very difficult to learn and be able to recall the information. Also, it takes a certain amount of calm to be able to focus, and who can focus with all this firing going on in their heads?
Damaging dopamine receptors can cause elevated dopamine which will create symptoms from OCD to learning disabilities and clumsiness to mental lethargy. Many children experiencing hyperactivity, hyper emotionalism and hyper sensitivity have high dopamine levels which are likely due to the damaged receptors and possibly even the enzyme required to regulate it.
For a study on damaging effects of organophosphates on the dopamine system, visit: Pesticides On the Brain: The Environmental Factors Behind Parkinson’s Disease at . Another very well researched study is published here regarding how organophosphates dysregulate dopamine signaling, glutamatergic neurotransmission, and induce neuronal injury markers in the striatum area of the brain
Organophosphates are neurodegenerative neurotoxins and endocrine disruptors, both of which have significant impact on mood, learning, and behavioral neurochemical mechanisms.
The toxic effects of organophosphate poisoning will vary not only with the route and extent of exposure, but also the chemical structure of the agent and other general health, diet, lifestyle, environmental exposure, genetic and more so, epigenetic influences.
The EPA named organophosphates and carbamates the most threatening of all insecticides, yet they account for approximately half of the insecticides used today. Animal tests of organophosphates show that a small single dose on a critical day of fetal or newborn development can cause permanent damage in neurotransmitter receptor levels in the brain and hyperactivity. Mothers-to-be and moms with the little ones at your ankles, step away from conventional produce – it is damaging your children’s’ brains and yours and the child’s peace of mind!

Chlorpyrifos – is the most widely used pesticide in the United States and is an “organophosphate banned for most home and garden uses because of its threat to children’s health, but which is still used in agriculture. Chlorpyrifos have been shown to decrease DNA synthesis in the developing brain (reducing protein synthesis and cellular development), reducing total brain cells”. Epidemiological data shows that 82% of adults and 92% of children have measurable concentrations of the primary metabolite of Dursban (Chlorpyrifos) (3,5,6-TCP) in their urine.
Please visit the Pesticide Action Network at for an introduction to the link between chemicals and learning disabilities. By the way, Chlorpyrifos cause cell loss in the prefrontal cortex (and many other areas of the brain) – this alone can account for learning disabilities and what you’re able to do with information if you get a chance to learn it!

Warning for women of child bearing age – please read this article: Long-Term Effects on Hypothalamic Neuropeptides after Developmental Exposure to Chlorpyrifos in Mice. This is an extremely enlightening article regarding the neurotoxic effects on fetuses and young children and offers scientific data linking lack of focus (ADD), hyperactivity etc… directly to pesticides.

Organochlorine Insecticides were commonly used in the past, but many have been removed from the market due to their health and environmental effects and their persistence (e.g. DDT and chlordane). These insecticides are still being found in human tissues, umbilical chords, milk and other body fluids – therefore they still pose a great threat to our mental health and should be tested for along with the other more common ones used today. They are also still approved for other than agrcultural uses.

Organochlorine pesticides act primarily by altering the movement of ions across the nerve cell membranes, thus changing the ability of the nerve to transmit (and receive) an impulse. I call this altering of nerve communication a “chemical lobotomy”. In a standard lobotomy a knife is used to cut communication between nerve centers of the brain, in the case of toxic poisoning, chemicals are used to produce the same effect.

Pyrethroid Pesticides were developed as a synthetic version of the naturally occurring pesticide pyrethrin, which is found in chrysanthemums. They have been modified to increase their stability in the environment. Some synthetic pyrethroids are toxic to the nervous system.

To find the most commonly used pesticides in your area go to (Australia’s list of registered pesticides is found at this link: or google “pesticide use report (your state or country)”.

Hormones, Drugs & Antibiotics

Below is a list of hormones, drugs and antibiotics that are used in the livestock of animal farms-for-food and their potential effect on mental health.

rGBH is a hormone used to increase milk production in dairy farm cows. It is an endocrine disruptor as well as a potent carcinogen.

In addition to rGBH, the six natural and artificial hormones used in beef production today are the naturally occurring—Oestradiol, Progesterone and Testosterone—and three synthetic which are—Zeranol, Trenbolone, and Melengestrol. These hormones are transferred to the consumer and are not only directly linked to cancer but are endocrine disruptors which negatively affect the hormone balance in the consumer thus brain chemistry resulting in adverse mental and emotional stability. A healthy body will produce the hormones it requires for healthy functioning in its environment, when synthetic or natural exogenous hormones are introduced it creates an imbalance in the organism (human) and symptoms will result.

Antibiotics used on cattle and other farm animals intended for consumption are transferred into the body of the consumer. Not only is this known to cause antibiotic resistance, but many other health issues such as Candida Albicans which causes a plethora of mental health symptoms including depression and anxiety.

Most human exposure to dioxins comes from animal fats. Dioxins are neurotoxins which impose oxidative stress on the nervous system and brain, causing death to neurons; ergo, potential mental health issues depending on level of exposure.

Aspartame, MSG, Artificial Sweeteners, Sugar, Coffee, 2000+ Food Chemicals

Aspartame (Nutrisweet, Equal, Spoonful) converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which causes metabolic acidosis. The methanol toxicity produces identical symptoms to multiple sclerosis. Because of this, many people are being misdiagnosed as having MS. A few years back I had a patient that was diagnosed with MS. She did the Body Burden Detox eliminating aspartame entirely from her diet while taking nerve and brain tissue nourishing targeted nutritional therapies, modified her diet to support healing, engaged in mild exercise and she was well inside of two months.

Aspartame has been found to be the progenitor of other conditions such as Lupus and even Epilepsy because it causes seizures.

Aspartame is a potent neuro– excitotoxic, endocrine disruptor and is one of the most prevalent deleterious toxic chemicals on the market today. It is added to thousands of processed foods, drinks, gums, candy –even children’s vitamins! It is the most problematic substance ingested by my patients and with its discontinuance comes relief from mental health issues ranging from acute anxiety and chronic depression- to mood swings and schizophrenic symptoms such as hallucinations and voices. Aspartame degenerates neurons (killing brain tissue) and damages the liver and kidneys and because of this and its plethora of adverse effects on the brain and nervous system, it is by far the most dangerous food additive on the market.

Here’s a short list of the conditions it is linked to: fibromyalgia, lupus, multiple sclerosis, cancer, (seriously, ANY neurological disorder or degenerative disease) diabetes, tinnitus, lack of focus, anxiety attacks, blurred vision, paranoia, depression, memory loss, slurred speech, headaches, shooting pains… If you have ANY condition, you would be well served and increase your chances for recovery tremendously by discontinuing all neurotoxins in your diet, personal hygiene, home and work environments – with Aspartame at the top of the list!

Many books have been written regarding the neuro and excito toxic health risks linked to Sweet & Low and Splenda. Sucralose belongs to the same family as PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and DDT. It is linked to a plethora of very serious symptoms and conditions such as brain lesions, enlarged kidneys and liver, skin reactions, joint paint – the list goes on! If you don’t have enough information to be removing these very dangerous and mental health robbing artificial sweeteners completely from your diet I suggest you pick up Sweet Misery – it’s a good start.

NutraSweet, a former asset of Monsanto, has developed a newer, more toxic version of Aspartame; Neotame. What is possibly worse is that the food labeling requirements required for aspartame do not exist for Neotame. Neotame does not have to be listed on the ingredients for processed foods; not even USDA Certified Organic foods nor Certified Kosher products with the letter “k” inside the circle.

Neotame is manufactured by combining aspartame with 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde, which was added to block enzymes that break the peptide bond between aspartic acid and phenylalanine, thereby reducing the availability of phenylalanine.

This is direct from the Material Safety Data Sheet for butyraldehyde of 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde: “The substance is toxic to blood, liver, mucous membranes, upper respiratory tract, skin, central nervous system (CNS), eye, lens or cornea. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage.” It is absolutely criminally irresponsible that the MSDS report for this substance states the it may be harmful if absorbed through the skin, yet the FDA has determined that it and aspartame (under the Neotame label), which has proven to be linked to adverse mental health issues, neurological disorders, brain tumors and disease does not have to be listed on the labels of foods that you may eat.

Since this product is new to the market, and its health risks will not be easily traced because it is not on labels I cannot report any direct links to mental health issues. However, it is considered to be more toxic than aspartame, so common sense without the data should be sufficient for you to completely avoid this chemical.

MSG and Asparate are neurotoxic excitotoxins that are found in thousands of processed foods and drinks and in many restaurant dishes. These chemicals cause brain damage at even low dosages, as well as endocrine disorders (hormonal imbalances, obesity and reproductive disorders), behavior disorders and neurodegenerative disease. Symptoms include anxiety, panic attacks, inability to focus, learning disabilities, headaches, flushing, dizziness, A.D.D., A.D.H.D., insomnia, restless leg syndrome, rage, hostility, mental “dullness”, and heart palpitations which cause anxiety and fear (this is a short list).

Microscopic photograph at left shows normal brain area called the arcuate nucleus which is a collection of neurons in the hypothalamus. Photograph at right shows same area after exposure to MSG at 1 g/kg. White areas are dead brain cells resulting from the MSG exposure. Brain tissue death results in brain function decline and adverse mental health symptoms.

Sugar is neuro – excitotoxic and disrupts the endocrine system and is in my opinion, the true gateway drug. Diets high in sugar, especially at an early age, leads to many neuroendocrine disorders including adrenal fatigue and hypoglycemia. The symptoms of which send tens of thousands of people to psychiatrists, where instead of receiving an ethical medical work up and diagnostics to determine the root cause the anxiety, depression, mood swings, rage, hyper-emotionalism, etc… diets high in sugar are known to produce, they will receive usually a cocktail of drugs that will push them into the revolving door of toxic drugging called medicine by the pharmaceutical and psychiatric communities. However, most of the time these symptoms will develop at middle and high school and your young sufferer will find their relief in street drugs.

The addiction to sugar is actually interchangeable with alcohol because they both unleash a cocktail of GABA, serotonin and beta endorphins in the brain which at first may be very appealing but the exaggerated release of these natural feel-goods come at a very high price. The “high” is short lived and the come-down can be agonizing. Not only have you “emptied your tank” of the raw materials required to maintain a sufficient steady flow of these God-given goodies. Sugar travels identical biochemical pathways in the brain as alcohol which explains the high sugar and coffee (releases glycogen from the liver) intake members of Alcohol Anonymous are known for. Which is also the underlying causation of alcoholism being a progressive disease in that community – when it doesn’t have to be.

Excess caffeine causes irritability, mental fatigue, anxiety and insomnia. If you must have it and you are not symptomatic, keep it to one cup a day of organic and have it after lunch when your blood sugar is nice and stable for the day. I never understood why people want to jump out of bed and cancel out that nice, calm, rested feeling for a coffee buzz!

Food colorings are mostly made of petroleum products. They are linked to brain tumors, hyperactivity, anxiety and inability to focus.

There are over 2000+ Food Chemicals being put in processed foods – many of which the food companies don’t have to put on the label! Of course I could never do justice to this topic in an article – it would require a tome at least a mile wide to document historic and current damage chemicals used in your food do to rob the health of your mind and as well as the animals and the struggling earth that is subjected to their harmful toxicity. Leave it to say that all of them from preservatives to food colorings have an enormous negative impact on your mental and physical health. They are all toxins that were never meant to be in your body so don’t put them there!

In part two of “The Invisible Crazy Makers” I will expose the neurological health risks promoting adverse mental health symptoms linked to GMOs, tap water, BPA / phthalates, mold and fungus and then introduce how you can effectively detox your body and mind of all environmental and dietary chemicals that have accumulated in your body. Body Burden detox is the holistic medical treatment that will be required in the near future even more so than today to maintain good physical and mental health!

Genita Petralli – Mason discusses the many benefits of infrared sauna and why she uses them at The Biosanctuary – her environmental medicine health spa and detox retreats in Malibu and London. For more information call (877) 285.9266

Infrared sauna offer many benefits for health and detoxification over conventional steam and dry saunas. For one, you would never want to go into a public or private steam sauna that uses tap water! Tap water has many volatile organic compounds in it such as chlorine and fluoride. When you heat these compounds to a steam you are creating gases from them and breathing them, this levies an tremendous amount of oxidative stress to the lungs and every organ throughout the body through via the blood from both absorbing through the skin and breathing it. One significant advantage of infrared saunas is that they break down water clusters of molecules from the regular 11 to 13 to 3 to 5. This helps water get through the dried, hardened outer layer of your cells and helps to cleanse them faster resulting in a much faster detoxification. Here’s a list of some more of the many benefits of infrared sauna:

  • Infrared saunas penetrate deep into the skin killing parasites and pathogens.
  • clinically established to boost mood.
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Improve blood circulation, especially in the microcirclatory are of the brain. Delivering oxygen and nutrients and flushing out waste.
  • They activate the immune system due to raising core body temperature via the inside out.
  • Raise the metabolism- improving weight loss efforts.
  • Provide pain relief by reducing inflammation
  • Improve sleep

Everyone has a unique response to infrared reporting even more benefits. Our infrared and ozone infrared saunas are a core treatment at The Biosanctuary’s Detox Health Spa.

Sovereign & ASAP Colloidal Silver Get a Thumbs Down – Not Advertised Potency

colloidal silvercolloidal silver ASAP

At The Biosanctuary Detox & Health Spa we use a considerable amount of Colloidal Silver for boosting the immune system and assisting low micro current blood electrification for getting rid of parasites, pathogens and cancer cells floating around in the blood.  The strength or potency of the solution is extremely important in its efficacy.  Thank goodness we make our own at The Biosanctuary because for integrity of process. I tested a couple of clients’ products and was alarmed at what I found.  Alarmed because they had been using these products for years and not only wasting their money but if all the others bottle they had purchased had such minute amounts of actual colloidal silver, it was unlikely they were receiving any benefit at all.

I was very disappointed this week to find that the popular Sovereign Silver product I purchased tested to be just 5ppm as opposed to the 10ppm advertised on the packaging.  The ASAP, which is less expensive, tested to be 6ppm when advertised to be 10. I used a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter. Now there is a lot of very good scientific data out there about the inability to test a colloidal – or suspended particles with a TDS meter. However, even suspended it would create an electrical current which a TDS meter measures.

Another concern I have on the other end of the spectrum is that Sovereign prides itself in being a small particle colloidal silver manufacturer (smaller the particles, the better). So really, if you want to go along with the questionability of a TDS meter being able to measure colloidal silver- and there are indeed many variables here when it comes to the measure of colloidals, the closer to zero would be the best scenario across the board meaning all of the silver is suspended. So what do we want to go with here? What the TDS meter is picking up on then is actual silver particles. I say make your own- it’s the only real way of knowing what you’re getting. You don’t want silver particles if you’re using it long term and I’m not ready to trust this company especially after the conversation I had with them earlier today- see below.

What’s even more concerning is that the expiration date is 11/16 on the Sovereign.  By then there would likely to be very little if any colloidal silver in the product. They assured me that they have a way of preventing loss of colloidal silver over a three year expiration date. This is getting interesting.

Companies that do not ensure that you are getting what you think you are purchasing, especially health products as they directly relate to your quality of life, are cheating you at the very core of your existence. It also disappoints me because they give good biological medicine a bad name as people will buy these products and use them for the intended healing event and experience nothing of the like. Then they go off thinking that biological medicine is quackery and most likely will become victims of the dark side of allopathic medicine- especially when it comes to viral and bacterial infections: antibiotics.

Taking this product as you really should at 10ppm it would last only two days and this bottle cost nearly .00! Sovereign & APS, you need to do better quality assurance checks and at those prices you certainly should be able to staff for it!

In general these days it is important to focus on your immune system simply because we have the constant threat of being hit by one of the unknown bacterias that are developing from GMOs – a man in New Zealand has already died from a documented “unknown bacteria” and there will be many more to follow.  It is even more important to boost your immune system while detoxifying because the process taxes the immune system on all levels during the initial stages and then of course boosts it once the detox is actually accomplished.

I will make it a point to test as many products as I can in my lab and share my findings with you, the health consumer in need of effective products, so that you can get the results you are investing in and benefit from authentic biological medicine!  In today’s world your immune system is your lifeline- you are better off making your own colloidal silver.

I will be showing you how to do that this week!

PS- Got a call from Sovereign Colloidal Silver today – May 14th, 2014. They are going to send me some data as the accuracy of TDS meters have been put into question before regarding their product. What I’m a bit concerned about is that he said “I would like to settle this amicably rather than any other way”. I asked him if he was threatening me and he said “no”. How would you take that?

What I’m finding as the bottom line here is that there is no real extremely accurate way for the common consumer (except for the fact that I know there are actual dissolved solids in their product which also concerns me) to test the integrity of this product because it would take an Atomic Absorption Analysis Mass Flame Spectrometry test and that piece of equipment is easily 50 to 100k.

Make your own, it’s the only way of knowing exactly what you are getting.

Each and every one of the epidemic diseases of today has its roots in environmental toxicity and excess and many people are looking for health spas that specialize in detoxification but very few are actually practicing true biological medicine to provide the client what they are looking for: a true, thorough, detoxification of the body and brain evidenced and facilitated by before and after laboratory testing.

Cancer, fibromyalgia, Leaky Gut Syndrome (all GUT disorders), diabetes, heart disease, addiction, Myopathy, Multiple Sclerosis, fatty/sluggish liver, etc. as well as conditions such as mental and physical fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia and obesity are direct results of our toxic food chain, environmental toxicity, drugs called medicine and excess appetites we develop for all the bad substances out there to try and cancel out the symptoms of dis-eased conditions within our bodies and minds which produce chronic symptoms that our own pharmacist within can no longer effectively mediate.

Because there are literally hundreds of toxic exposures inflicted on the average human today whether it be lead from your plumbing, arsenic from rice, radiation from fukushima, petroleum byproducts from the Gulf oil spill, cesium and aluminum from Chemtrails, VOC’s including fluoride and chlorine from tap water, aspartame in your gum or diet coke, MSG in your food or Genetically Modified Organisms from biological and chemically altered “food”, you must get lab testing done to establish exactly what you have been exposed to as they all levy different nutritional taxes on the body which kills tissues they have an affinity for and destroys biological pathways required for physical and mental health. There are carcinogens which cause cancer, neurotoxic chemicals which have an affinity for the nervous system and brain, endocrine disruptors such as Obesogens (yes, chemicals which cause weight gain and make it nearly impossible to lose weight) which disrupt the endocrine glands; a very sophisticated system of checks and balances of your sex, adrenal gland, pituitary, heart, hypothalamus, pancreas, thyroid and parathyroid hormonal output and degradation and excitotoxins which literally “burn out” the brain and nervous system by causing excessive neuronal cell death much like neurotoxins.

Once you have established what you are being poisoned by through organic acids testing for gut and brain related health issues; toxic metals, cancer markers, environmental toxicity, yeast, bacteria and mold infections; and you have tested your heart, liver, kidney, thyroid, brain, lymph, bone and pancreatic function, you can establish a targeted nutritional therapy to both assist a thorough deep detox and reconstruct those damaged and malfunctioning biosystems.

With thorough laboratory testing and a targeted nutritional therapy in hand you can check into a holistic detox center such as The Biosanctuary ( and begin completely unloading the bioaccumulated toxic waste in your body.

The key treatment checklist for a High Impact Biological Medicine Detoxification would be:

Diet: Your detox diet should be based on Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) removal.  I have helped patients clear everything from psychosis to cancer using this diet.  Due to GMOs, chemically drenched foods, toxic assault from numerous routes of exposure and over-eating (as well as not allowing the GI and colon to self cleanse by refraining from eating a minimum of 4 hours between meals) bad bacteria, yeast and mold provided ideal conditions to create colonies and grow in the gut and colon. This condition is known as bacterial dysbiosis and yeast overgrowth which are associated with everything from psychosis to cancer.

I will be taking each of the treatment topics below and fleshing them out much more in blog topics to follow this and next week.

Ozone Treatments:  Ozone is anaerobic specific so it goes after the bad bacteria, yeast, mold, cancer cells, viruses and boosts the immune system.  It also goes a long way in quickly cleaning out the terrain of the brain and improving blood flow to microcirculatory systems such as the brain which helps to get the oxygen and nutrients in and the waste out.  I will go much more into this in my next blog.

While treating a cancer patient at my MASH* unit detox health spa in Australia I demonstrated how exactly how ozone goes after the bad tissue and leaves healthy tissue alone.  I was helping him get rid of a brain tumor deep inside his head (what the neurosurgeon couldn’t get out) and the incision where they drilled to start the cut through the skull had become infected and oozy.  I put ozone oil on the infected part and then blew ozone from the generator directly on the wound.  Within two days the infection was gone and the cut began to finally heal.  I explained to him that this is how ozone works inside the body as well; going after the anaerobic organism such as cancer and injured tissues and leaving the healthy neurons and tissues of the brain alone.

Infra-red Sauna:  Infra-red sauna raises core body temperature, killing bad bacteria, parasites, yeast, mold and viruses. It improves circulation and mood, boosts the immune system and has been tested to release far more toxins in the sweat the conventional steam and dry heat saunas.  It also breaks down water clusters from 11 to 13 molecules to 3 to 5, allowing water to more easily enter hardened, polluted cells and rinse out those conditions.

Cold Laser Therapy:  Cold Laser Therapy works on the Rife Technology principles of creating energetic coherence in an area of discord the body is suffering and matching the frequency of certain organisms to cause them to die, such as bacteria, parasites, yeast, cancer. Essentially, any unwanted organism polluting the body. They are also used to tune in brain frequencies known to produce joy, calm and optimism.

Food Detox Spa:  It took me a long time to get behind the ionic detox spas until I actually helped a client start walking again after three years in a wheelchair.  She had had a toxic reaction to a popular antibiotic which unleashed a bucket load of uric acid crystals and bacteria that damaged her muscle and nerve tissues.

The Detox Foot Spas are great for relieving the toxic load (all the large molecule toxins are forced to the feet via gravity).  It’s not like a fasting sort of detox, but what it does is remove toxins from the feet that the blood picks up and relocates all day long.  It is also very relaxing and when  you are relaxed,  you are healing!

Colon Hydrotherapy:   People are horribly impacted today.  The average treatment session at The Biosanctuary detox and health spa is 10 days.  Those that just juice and have a SIBO pureed green soup during the day for those ten days  can still be eliminating old waste!  It is extremely important to have multiple (we do 5 in 10 days- some people do more) colonics during a detox.  Old waste builds up in the colon and continually recirculates throughout the body and brain all day and night. Bioaccumulating, becoming more and more toxic.  This waste is linked to everything for fog brain to cancer!

You also want to make sure the detox spa is going to replenish your colon with healthy probiotics for the colon.  At The Biosanctuary we use ozone after colon hydrotherapy to kills off all the exposed bacteria and then one hour later do a probiotic insert.

HeartMath:  The heart is the driving energetic and conscious force of the body and mind. It puts out 9 times the energy than that of the brain.  We in Epigenetic Treatment Models (ETM) understand the scientific concrete evidence which supports that the heart’s energetic output is the most influential energetic environmental factor for health or disease of the body and mind.  The energy coming off the heart will produce either coherence which facilitates efficient homeostatic functioning of every cell of the body or if it is in discord, will cause the cells to struggle for survival consuming far too much energy and nutrients until both are exhausted.  It is the heart that needs to be focused on for your healing event.

Think about it, when a technician does an EEG to test electrical pulses from the brain they have to put the transducers ON the skull to get a read from the brain’s activity.  When they do an ECG of the heart, the technician has to leave the room and go behind a sealed door or his/her heart output could get into the patient’s.  Heart electrical activity can be read up to 8 feet in the normal person and has been recorded up to 16 feet in yogis meditating on gratitude, compassion and love!

Nutritional IV Therapy:  Is necessary especially in the beginning of a detox because it is important to bypass the digestive process.  Nearly every patient (especially those on psych and “choose your mood” drugs) that walks in my door has a compromised digestive tract.  IV therapy is excellent for quickly re-establishing a health nutritional status to assist both detox and biorepair of organs.

Organic Supplements & Super Foods:  There is a significant difference in usability, possible toxic and GMO exposures, treatment accuracy and likelihood for a successful healing event between organic and synthetic supplements.  Many people do not know that 95% of vitamins at the health food store are petroleum byproducts.  Remember, anything made by nature that you put in your body comes with many components that help break it down and utilize it – bioavailability is a huge factor in the success of your targeted nutritional therapy.  A health spa should be focused entirely on detox as opposed to adding to your toxic load with toxic sourcing, binders and fillers.

Live Blood Cell Analysis:  Is an excellent way of reviewing the condition of the blood which is a literal hologram for that of the body.  You can also get a very clear picture of the level of toxicity your body is suffering.

Nature: The best Detox Health Spa is going to be in nature.  I have facilitated detox, addiction, med tapers, cancer, and various other treatment models in every setting imaginable from the sterile environment of a hospital clinic to the jungle of Costa Rica and I can testify from years of first hand experience with patients that nature; the ocean, trees, mountains and peacefulness of being hugged by the harmonic energy of nature is medicine in itself.  It improves and expedites the healing process in measurable and very rewarding ways.

Organic Food:  Unfortunately most health and detox spas that serve food actually provide conventional foods dressed as “healthy” because they may be vegetables as opposed to meat based meals, but that are toxic and even genetically modified! This becomes a real problem when the veggies used to juice are full of pesticides!  Think about it, you are getting a strong dose of pesticides, Chemtrails, and even possibly GMOs known to literally rip holes in your intestines!  Make sure the detox spa you sign up with is entirely organic. No exceptions!

Education: Every detox spa that is really in it for the best possible patient outcomes will educate you in both food preparation, juicing, and the many routes of toxic exposures you need to know about to protect yourself.  Spending a ton of money for at a detox spa to only reintroduce yourself to your old toxic environment without a good education about diet and food preparation is a huge waste and doesn’t provide for a sustainable healing event which is really what your investment is all about.

Spa Services:  You should never put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t eat! Be sure your detox spa uses only organic (preferably freshly made) facial products.

Massage oils should be organic as well.  Your skin absorbs everything put on it which bypasses the liver and goes directly to organ tissues.

Doing your homework before selecting the best Detox Health Spa for you can make the difference between a true healing event and a temporary sub-optimal experience that does really no good toward protecting you from today’s epidemic health issues.

You can make a difference, you already have!

Laboratory Testing

Here are some of the common tests we consider at Shangri La BioSpa & Resort. We use these tests as a foundation for our research into your individual needs for a successful healing event from both your addiction and the conditions that brought you to it.  While we start with these, we will sometimes order additional tests to further evaluate biochemical and bioenergetic weaknesses/excesses and deficiencies based on the individual patient’s health history, current lifestyle, diet, symptoms and drug/alcohol use.

Complete Blood Count (CBC): Thyroid Profile, Lipid Profile, Liver Profile, Kidney Panel, Minerals and Bone, Fluids and Electrolytes, and fasting blood sugar.

Metabolic Analysis Profile (MAP):   The methylation cycle is key in determining a patient’s ability to detoxify. It also provides concrete evidence about the availability of certain nutrients for sound mental health. The Metabolic Analysis Profile is an excellent test to establish the functional biochemistry of the methylation and Krebs cycle.

Environmental Chemical Overload:  Many mental distresses, such as anxiety and panic attacks, are caused by nerve-damaging toxins in the environment, known as neurotoxins. They sometimes cause people to medicate themselves either professionally or on their own.  We test individuals for chemical overloads that could be causing mental distress that leads to drug/alcohol addiction.

Food Chemical Overload:  Today’s standard diet is becoming more chemical than nutritional.  Monosodium glutamate, Aspartame and literally thousands of other chemicals are poured into our food supply by the billions of tons yearly.  Many people are developing a toxic overload of these chemicals. They can damage the liver and cause many of the mental health distresses diagnosed by psychiatry as everything from bipolar mental illness to attention deficit disorder. These chemicals are implicated in neurotoxicity. Digesting them provides them direct access to the very delicate organs of the neuroendocrine system that are responsible for providing healthy states of mind and homeostasis experienced as peace of mind.

Amino Acid Assays: Today’s conventional /processed diet simply does not have either complete proteins or adequate amounts of protein’s sub units known as amino acids, the fundamental building blocks of the neurochemicals required for mental health.  An amino acid assay can expose deficiencies that need to be corrected for the fundamental requirement of raw materials available for the production of neurotransmitters and hormones.

NutriEval: A comprehensive nutritional evaluation provides assessment of:

  • Oxidative Stress
  • Organic Acids
  • Amino Acids (FMV)
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • Toxic and Nutrient Elements
  • Malabsorption and Dysbiosis Markers
  • Cellular Energy and Mitochondrial Metabolites
  • Neurotransmitter Metabolites
  • Organic Acids for Cofactor Need
  • Creatinine Concentration
  • Krebs Cycle
  • Neurotransmitter Metabolism
  • Amino Acid Analysis
  • Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acids Markers (RB Cs)
  • Fatty Acid Metabolism
  • Toxic Elements
  • Oxidative Stress

*This profile also provides assessment of gastrointestinal dysfunction and detoxification impairment.

Toxic overload, stress, legal and illegal drugs use, alcohol, excess caffeine and sugars, illness, processed foods—all tax what little nutrition people are receiving today in their diet and can actually result in malnutrition.  In fact, many people on what would be considered a good diet could be suffering from malnutrition due to the toxic load placed on the body to metabolize their intake.

Many people suffer from malnutrition psychosis that is labeled as other things by psychiatry, without considering one biochemical/functional test to determine the root cause of a condition or drug/alcohol use before prescribing additional toxic drugs.  The NutriEval test provides concrete evidence of what raw vitamins, minerals, etc. are required not only for neurotransmitter and hormone synthesis, but for the fundamental function of all cells. When they are provided the essentials they require, cells can repair and replicate themselves in a healthy way.

Autism Spectrum Analysis:  A combination of the tests presented here and some others when indicated are excellent tools for developing a functional integrative medical approach to alleviating and curing those individuals on the spectrum.  The effects of mercury toxicity in vaccinations are directly linked to many of the symptoms people self-medicate today.

Vitamin D:  Considered by many naturopaths today to be the number one deficient vitamin in the U.S.,  Vitamin D is crucial to healthy neuroendocrine function.

Pyroluria – Many mental health conditions diagnosed as schizophrenic are truly pyroluric cases that can be corrected with targeted nutritional adjustments in vitamin B6 and zinc.

HPA axis Function:  The axis of the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal (HPA) glands is where neurochemical adaptation (addiction) resides.  It is the health and communication between these organs of the neuroendocrine system that must be brought back to balance to heal addictive biochemistry, provide neurochemical rehabilitation and ultimately heal and stabilize the entire neuroendocrine system. This process is key to bringing long-lasting mental health free of cravings, mental distresses and other symptoms that lead one to alcohol/drug abuse.  The HPA axis is your internal pharmacist and when it doesn’t show up for work, you don’t get what you naturally need for the blessings of feeling good inside your own skin and mind.

At Shangri La BioSpa & Resort we test every patient for how their HPA axis is functioning. We check levels of serotonin, GABA, dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, beta-endorphins, enkaphalins and the hormones DHEA and cortisol. We use the results to help us to prepare a sophisticated treatment strategy to bring you and your life in balance.

Heavy Metals:  Heavy metals toxicity—particularly mercury—  is connected to anxiety, autism, ADD/ADHD and many other mental distresses and performance issues as well as cancer.  High copper status is directly connected to “voices”, hallucinations and paranoia.

Liver Function:  A Functional Liver Detoxification Profile (FLDP) assesses the performance of the 6 major detoxification pathways of the liver. If the liver isn’t detoxifying the system efficiently, the brain and all other organs suffer  and this can certainly lead to symptoms and cravings.  Analyzing the functioning of the liver provides us the evidence we need to target key areas of the liver that may be weak, so we can  bring the liver back to health and promote mental/physical wellness in general.

Hormone / Neurotransmitter Assay:  Amino acid assays establish whether there is enough protein in the diet, how amino acids (protein subunits) are being utilized, and if they are being successfully made into neurotransmitters.  Toxic overload, processed food diets, stress, and many other factors  cause the depletion of key “cofactors” such as vitamin, minerals, EFAs and enzymes. Toxic overload can disable the process of actually producing the neurochemistry required for natural mental health even if your protein intake is sufficient.  Neurotransmitter assays identify key nutritional deficiencies that could be causing symptoms that encourage one to seek relief in drugs/alcohol.  

Hormone Panels:  Hormones are very powerful mind and body regulators and any excess or deficiency would indicate a propensity for symptoms that would encourage one toward self-medicating or seeking legal drugs. For example, the hormone cortisol is naturally released by the adrenals to raise blood sugar and provide a chemical stress buffer when needed. Your adrenals may not be producing enough cortisol due to today’s processed, empty carb, chemically poisoned diets and over-stimulating lifestyles.  If this is so, you can experience stress much more profoundly than one who has a healthy set of these very important organs for good mental health.  Increased perception of stress caused by a lack of cortisol can make one hyper-reactive, moody, and stressed to the point of feeling they are going to break. Testing for cortisol and other key hormones for good mental/physical health is fundamental in establishing an evidence-based treatment strategy. The test is very effective in establishing exactly what you require to begin making your own natural feel-goods again.

IV Chelation Therapy

What is Chelation Therapy?

One of the most toxic assaults that people are experiencing today is that of toxic metals coming up in everything from chocolate and cereals to nose sprays, psychiatric drugs and vaccinations. The only way to avoid the plethora of metabolic disorders and diseases they cause, as well as the long list of symptoms (including death) that go with them is to first chelate, then find out where your routes of exposuer are and eliminate them.

Chelation is the process by which chemicals bind with minerals. This is a common occurrence, and nature uses it frequently. Hemoglobin is the best example: it binds with iron to provide oxygen to the tissues. Plants use chlorophyll in much the same way. Many vitamins have chelating properties, including R-alpha lipoic acid, selenium, zinc, Vitamin C and A. There are also excellent plant sources that aid in removing toxic metals from the body such as garlic, cilantro and chlorophyll.

However, none of the oral applications come close to what IV Chelation can do for removing toxic metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, aluminum and barium; the latter two becoming more and more problematic in individuals today due to Chemtrail spraying which deposits aluminum, barium and many other questionable things into our air, water sources and farmlands. More and more of my clients today are coming in with extremely high aluminum bioaccumulation and this of course puts them at high risk for a plethora of diseases discussed in the aluminum section of this chapter.

Chemtrails is just one of many heavy metal toxic assaults being inflicted on living creatures and the planet itself. Our world is becoming more and more polluted with toxic metals and they are showing up in the strangest places making it very hard to avoid them unless you know where they are lurking. And since there are involuntary exposures that you don’t have any control over such as aluminum and barium from Chemtrails, you need to know how to quickly remove them from the system so they can’t bioaccumulate in your cells and tissues again after you have chelated them out.

View the chart below; how can mercury be in Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup? And why would they put it in eye drops and nose sprays where it would have direct access to the brain? This is extremely irresponsible food science and OTC product production science. But the fact of the matter it is they are there and if you are not avoiding these items and practicing good daily chelation methods to keep toxic metals from being absorbed into tissues it is going to bioaccumulate and advance into high disease risk while robbing you of your quality of life due to the biosystems they disable and the symptoms they cause.

Symptoms, Tissues Effected and Routes of Exposure of Toxic Metal Body Burden

Below is a short list of the adverse health effects caused by each of the more common toxic metals found in my patients.


Aluminum is becoming more and more an issue due to Chemtrails being sprayed into our air and water supplies and onto our farms – including organic farms.
Sources of exposure: Aluminum is a naturally occurring metal that has been utilized by humans for a number of years. The body does not need or use aluminum for any of its biochemical processes.

While acid rain, plants grown in aluminum contaminated soil, coke cans, deodorants, amalgams (silver fillings), vaccinations, antacids, aluminum cookware, buffered aspirin, canned foods, lipsticks, prescription and over the counter drugs and aids, toothpastes and tap water are all concerning sources of aluminum, today Chemtrail spraying is the most dangerous of all of them. Chemtrails are allegedly the product of a Geoengineering effort to reduce global warming; however, what it is doing is causing more health related and other problems than natural global warming would ever cause the planet and all living creatures, plant and animal alike. Chemtrails have been proven to deposit aluminum, barium and strontium into every living creature in the area of the spray. This includes the water you drink, the food you eat and the air you breath.

Please view this scientifically validated documentary video on the content and chemical pollution Chemtrails are causing:

There is also a lot of useful information at the site.

Target tissues: Aluminum accumulates primarily in the brain and bones contributing or causing Alzheimer’s and osteoporosis.
Depending on the source of exposure aluminum can be absorbed through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract or the lungs. Following aluminum inhalation deposition occurs primarily within the lungs.

Signs and Symptoms: Aluminum toxicity can produce a number of clinical signs and symptoms. Common are excessive headaches, flatulence, abnormal heart rhythm, anemia, depression, numbness of the hands and feet, and blurred vision. In chronic dialysis patients there are four major causes of hypercalcemia: hyperparathyroidism, aluminum intoxication, vitamin D intoxication, and bed rest. Ergo; aluminum has a direct adverse effect on the parathyroid which manages calcium levels and kidney disease which can advance to renal failure. It is also linked to the cause of and symptoms related to neuromuscular disorders, respiratory diseases, fatty degeneration of the liver and kidneys, skin and blood disorders, and damage to the reproductive organs and stomach. Aluminum has been directly linked to reduction of both synthesis and release of the Parathyroid Hormone PTH, causing hypoparathyroidism and resulting low serum calcium which leads to osteoporosis.

Evidence suggests that inhaled aluminum may contribute to the development of pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary granulomatosis

I have personally worked with hard core addictive biochemistry patients and witnessed a complete turn-around in drug and alcohol seeking due to the alleviation of anxiety, paranoia, worry and mental stress caused by aluminum toxicity.

Aluminum has been linked to the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, Dialysis dementia, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), senile and presenile dementia, neurofibrillary tangles, clumsiness of movements staggering when walking and an inability to pronounce words properly.

Targeted Nutritional Therapy

Targeted nutritional therapy is the science of using laboratory testing of all major biochemical processes of the body to establish an evidence-based nutritional therapy for health issues when nutritional deficiencies known to cause them are exposed. Examples of tests that are helpful in establishing a cause for addictive biochemistry include the methylation cycle, brain chemistry analysis, amino acid/vitamin/mineral/EFA assays, Krebs cycle, metabolic profiles, liver function, heavy metal and other environmental toxicities. Results of these laboratory tests establish your individual nutritional deficiencies, providing concrete evidence for the selection of the nutraceuticals required to repair and re-establish healthy biochemical and metabolic processes required for restoring your physical and mental health. Each patient at Shangri La BioSpa and Resort is assessed for which tests need to be completed and a highly sophisticated, individualized formula is provided both orally and intravenously.

Intravenous targeted nutritional therapy provides nutrition directly into the cell, bypassing intestinal malabsorption and other digestive disorders. It is standard for anyone who has been addicted to pushed/prescribed and/or alcohol to have impaired digestion. In addition to gastrointestinal damage, many people with a long-term addiction to any pushed/prescribed drug and/or alcohol suffer from pancreatic dysfunction. This reduces enzyme production and makes it impossible to benefit from the nutrient dense diets that many well meaning holistic practitioners will prescribe for those suffering from drug toxicity and mental distress.

Additionally, it is very difficult to get nutrients in and waste out because toxins are locked in the cells due to poor and damaged cellular mechanics. Cell walls are hardened from excess sugar and hydrogenated and indigestible fats bonding to proteins. During detoxification and withdrawal it is extremely important to quickly get the cells the help they need to detoxify and intravenous treatment is the best way to do that. The path must be cleared quickly so that cells may use the raw materials in amino acids, vitamins, minerals, EFAs and enzymes to stabilize the patient, minimizing withdrawal and transitional discomfort and delivering the patient to natural mental health in the most humane and quick way possible.

Intravenous targeted nutritional therapy is key in ensuring minimal transitional discomfort during withdrawal. It also is the most effective way to provide the “pharmacist within”—the neuroendocrine system—the raw materials required for producing the natural neurochemicals responsible for “green” mental health experienced as peace, inner joy, inspiration, enthusiasm and a renewed ability to embrace life in a fully present way. When the body can produce it’s own “feel-goods,” then cravings and drug dependency for relief of distressing physical and mental symptoms disappear- and the cure to addiction is achieved.

NOTE: Oral chelation begins upon arrival and intravenous chelation begins during the second month for those staying for the suggested 2 months. Intravenous chelation can not be initiated until all detoxification systems are working well, and drug toxicity is minimized. IV TNT begins after testing, usually in the 6th week. Special arrangements at an additional fee can be made for continuous intravenous TNT from the date of arrival on a case by case basis.










Orthomolecular Medicine

A Comprehensive Guide to Mental Wellness in a Toxic World

Founder & Medical Director of Shangri La BioSpa & Resort, Genita Petralli H.H.P., N.C., M.H. provides an 18 hour lecture series over the 6 week program on all aspects of Green Mental Healthcare based on her new book, Green Mental Healthcare A Comprehensive Guide to Mental Wellness in a Toxic World

Twelve 90 minute lectures on the most prevalent topics of today for staying healthy in the toxic jungle:

1) Introduction: Fractal Environmentalism – As above, so below – Protecting and healing the earth through conscious consumption and healing yourself.

What is causing the Epidemic Mental Health issues today that often lead to addiction and relapse?  How the heart of humanity’s survival mechanism, the ability to adapt to the environment which is the function of the neuroendocrine system,  is being overworked and unable to keep up with the rapidly changing environment and the chemical abuse of both the earth and all its inhabitants.  When homeostasis is lost as a result of the organism not being able to adapt and the tank being empty (deficient raw materials for the cells to function) physical and mental symptoms develop which often lead to drugs and alcohol in an attempt to do what the body and mind can no longer do for itself.

Green Mental Health Care – Sustainable health care that utilizes, assists and respects the natural healing process allowing the body to heal and maintain health naturally as it was designed to do.

2) Introduction: What is Orthomolecular Medicine
? – “Use Ford parts to repair a Ford” – Dr. Linus Pauling – father of orthomolecular medicine and two time Nobel Prize Winner (chemistry & peace).
Ms. Petralli lectures on the application of Orthomolecular Medicine, what it is, it’s history and why it is the superior treatment / curative model for both you and the earth.

What is Orthomolecular Neurochemical Rehabilitation? – Drug and alcohol addiction are not a disease; they are metabolic disorders resulting from a very elegant and necessary survival mechanism – adaptation.  Addiction at its core is neurochemical adaption.  The mind and body, in order to maintain homeostasis and survive, have adapted to a drug to compensate for its effects on the body so the body doesn’t shut down.  Conversely, it is what is causing the symptoms that is the true dis-ease.  Sometimes it is as simple as the damage recreational drinking and drug use / abuse can do that serves up the cravings and mental distresses people seek relief from, but other times it can be a list of causes from heavy metal toxicity and poor diet to childhood and/or sexual abuse that will certainly put enough stress on the neuroendocrine system that it becomes deficient in naturally medicating the body and mind and maintaining symptom-free, sound mental and physical health.

Orthomolecular Neurochemical Rehabilitation uses the principles of Orthomolecular Medicine to make the cell’s environment nutrient dense and correct deficiencies in order to “awaken the physician within” and provide a means to get the nutrients in and the waste out so that the cell can do what it does best to heal itself, the organs, and the mind and body as a whole – repair and replicate and.  At this time neurochemical rehabilitation has occurred to the point of once again being able to use the natural elements in the cells environment for the cell to function healthyfully.  Neurochemical Rehabilitation involves detoxing the body/mind and then repairing the damage done by the toxic abuse.  It then employs full laboratory testing and counseling to discover the root cause of the attraction to drugs / alcohol in order to provide a full spectrum Orthomolecular treatment to heal the root cause and free the person once and for all from both the addiction and the symptoms that drove them to it.

Orthomolecular Medicine and Neurochemical Rehabilitation also involves the art and science of Environmental Hygiene, Functional Counseling (Integral Institutes Integral Life Practice) and Mind/Body energy healing techniques to create an environment for the organism as a whole (the person) to heal. 

The science that demonstrates the phenomenal results achieved by the mind/body energy healing treatments provided at Shangri La BioSpa & Resort such as Cranial Sacral, Cranial Electrical Stimulation, Acupuncture / Medical QiQong, Infrared Sauna (stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system) and Integral Life Practice Counseling will be presented.

3) Environmental Stress
– the inability to adapt – How the neuroendocrine system and particularly the HPA axis is showing signs of not being able to keep up.  The heat is on with the windows open.

4) Causes of today’s epidemic mental illness

5) Why Green Mental Health Care to address epidemic mental distress and addiction?

  1. What psychiatrists call medicine are toxic drugs that do not heal; they are linked to growing numbers of health issues, death by disease, violence, and suicide.  They cause hundreds of thousands more deaths yearly than illegal drugs.
  2. What is green mental health care? And why is it necessary for good mental health?
  3. What are the mechanics of and steps to neurochemical adaptation?
  4. What is orthomolecular neurochemical rehabilitation?  Detailed presentation showing the science of using natural substances to achieve what drugs are sought out for.

6) Food – the right criteria for the right choices.

7) Water – filters, wells, springs, and waterfalls

8) Environmental Hygiene: from toxic people to t.v. – Monsanto and Smith-Kline Free Living

9) Home – are the cleaning agents in your home making you sick? Cancer rates for those that work from home are higher than those who leave for the office and scientists are pointing to the toxic products used around the home and in the garden.

10) Personal Hygiene – all conventional products on the market today contain some if not many forms of neurotoxic, carcinogenic, and chemically poisonous products that are bypassing your liver through direct entry into the blood system through your skin.

11) Exercise – The average healthy person is exposed to over 3,000 toxins daily.  Established by a study where health conscious, pregnant women’s umbilical cords tested positive for this number of toxins.  

12) Adjunct Therapies: the value, virtue, vitality received by the practice of ancient and current mind/body healing methods that we call therapies that were once considered ritual. 

Live Blood Cell Analysis

BloodAt Shangri La BioSpa & Resort we are committed to providing the most effective evidence-based healthcare and treatments possible from the minute you arrive. While we wait for your lab results to return from the States & Germany, we employ live blood cell analysis to support an aggressive Targeted Nutritional Therapy that immediately begins correcting any conditions that may present themselves in the blood cell analysis. Live blood cell analysis is an excellent complement to our extensive list of laboratory tests we perform on our patients. It is just one of our many diagnostic procedures we use to provide a truly evidence-based treatment for you.

There are many conditions directly related to alcohol and drug addiction that can be verified with live blood cell analysis, and we can therefore immediately stabilize our patients to both begin the healing process and minimize transitional discomfort (withdrawal). Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products are a very common condition for those with a history of legal/illegal drug and alcohol abuse.  Hardening of the myelin sheath (cell wall) causes waste to be trapped in the cell and nutrients unable to get in as well as dramatically reduces communication between the cells. All this can be quickly corrected within the first few days to expedite your detoxification phase of treatment and any transitional discomfort by softening the cell walls and assisting nutrient delivery. Live blood cell analysis quickly identifies nutritional deficiencies while we wait for your other laboratory results from the U.S.

AGE is just one condition known to those with a history of toxic overload. There are many other conditions of the patient’s health and biochemistry that can be discovered through live blood cell analysis. This method supports further research and diagnostics to develop a truly individualized and accurate treatment to cure the addiction and its underlying cause.

Live blood cell analysis can also expose other health conditions that may complicate or impede your full recovery. Some examples are yeast overgrowth, bacterial infections, immune system issues, fungal infections, oxidative stress, infectious disease and degenerative diseases. These can be quickly identified and addressed to assist your full expeditious recovery.
Our “Aligned with Nature/Supported by Science” approach to your health is what makes our scientific approach so appealing to patients at Shangri La BioSpa & Clinic. We take all the guesswork out and put your confidence in. And when we have your confidence, the belief system is incorporated into treatment. This is the most powerful contributor to each and every successful treatment strategy.

Live blood cell analysis is used not only at the beginning of your treatment, but also as an effective way for you and your healthcare practitioner to monitor your progress throughout your treatment program.

Live Blood Cell Analysis is carried out by placing a drop of blood from the fingertip on a microscope slide under a glass cover slip to keep it from drying out.  The slide is then viewed at high magnification with a microscope that forwards the image to a television monitor.  Both practitioner and patient can then see the blood cells.  The results are then used as a basis for anaylsis.  A single drop of blood contains a mass of information which can be used to assess an individual’s current state of balance/imbalance.  This procedure is also called live cell analysis or nutritional blood analysis.   

Blood is the most important organ in the human body.  It provides every cell with the oxygen and nutrients it needs.  It is the system through which toxins and waste products are carried to the organs of elimination.  So it stands to reason that if the blood is not in an optimal state then this will affect the rest of the body.

Normal Red Blood CellsNormal Red Blood Cell (RBCs)
The circulatory system is the means by which oxygen, nutrients, antibodies, and hormones are transported to the cells to keep them alive and functioning. This is how our blood looks when we are experiencing optimum health. The Erythrocytes (cells) are round and separated and move through the capillaries very easily. The average size of healthy RBCs is 7.2 microns

Protein LinkageProtein Linkage
This condition is the first sign of cell stickiness and may progress into rouleau if not corrected. Protein linkage is a sign that excessive protein is being consumed or the protein is not being digested completely. As the cells start sticking together it becomes harder for the heart to push the blood through the veins and arteries.

When the blood gets to this condition the amount of oxygen that can be transported is severely diminished. This condition is caused by high fat and protein diets and high acidity. Your blood will look like this if you drink one soda and will stay that way for at least two hours. Because your cells are not getting oxygen you will feel tired, have poor digestion, and skin disorders.

Erythrocyte AggregationErythrocyte Aggregation
This condition is one step worse than rouleau. This is often seen in people with degenerative diseases. This is caused by undigested fats and proteins and high acidity. Degeneration of tissue always follows low oxygen and acidity. This condition can precede a blood clot which can cause a stroke or heart attack.

This condition is caused by free radicals. This also lowers the bloods oxygen carrying capacity and shortens the life if the cell. RBCs don’t have nuclei, so they will not mutate, but the fact that there is free radical damage signifies that there will also be damage to the nuclei of tissue cells which is the beginning of mutations that lead to cancer.

These are small RBCs having a diameter of less than 5 microns. These cells have less hemoglobin than normal cells and is often seen in people with iron deficiency anemia.

These cells are greater than 10 microns in size. Macrocytes are often seen in people with hemolytic anemia.

In this condition there are variations in the size of the cells. This is mostly seen in people with low levels of the vitamins B12 and folic acid and the mineral iron.

Target CellTarget Cell
These RBCs are deficient in iron and therefore hemoglobin, which is the part that carries oxygen. The symptoms produced in the body are tiredness, poor digestion, and anemia

This is literally the destruction of the red blood cell. This can be caused by bacterial infection or any number of toxins introduced into the blood stream. The hemoglobin goes out of the cells interior and diffuses into the plasma.

Fat, Protein, and Liver Congestion 


Normal Thrombocytes (Platelets)
Platelets are small disk shaped components of blood that have an important role in blood coagulation. When a blood vessel is injured the platelets adhere to each other and to the injury to form a plug which stops the bleeding. Platelets number approximately 200,000 to 300,000/

Thrombocyte Aggregation
When the thrombocytes (platelets) aggregate when there is no injury a very dangerous situation develops. The aggregated platelets can form a clot which can block an artery causing a stroke or heart attack. This clot is called a thrombus. Diets high in fats and proteins or high sugar consumption can create this situation

Spicules (Fibrin)
Fibrin are platelets that have changed in shape that form a net-like substance in which blood clots are formed by the entrapment of red and white cells and platelets. When they are formed in the blood when there is no injury there is an imminent danger of a blood clot that can cause a heart attack or stroke. This is caused by liver stress due to incomplete digestion of proteins and fats. 

Chylomicrons are small particles of fats in the blood after the digestion and assimilation of fat in food. The presence of chyomicrons in the blood after a 12 hour fast indicates a condition known as hyperlipo-proteinemia, This can lead to atheriosclerosis, coronary artery disease, and enlargement of the liver and spleen.  

Atherosclerotic plaque is one of the most dangerous conditions in the blood. It can adhere to the artery walls narrowing and hardening them. These crystals are formed when the system becomes acidic and the fatty acids from simple carbohydrates crystallize.  

Uric Acid Crystal
Uric acid is a byproduct of protein metabolization and urea. When the body becomes acidic the urea forms crystals that can lodge in the joints or in the tissues. Uric acid is the cause of gout and one of the causes of fibromyalgia. These crystals are shaped like knives and is the reason it can cause so much pain for people with either of these disorders. 

Cholesterol Crystal
Cholesterol is an important sterol in the body that is the precursor for many important hormones. Only when the body is acidic does the cholesterol crystallize and become a problem. This is probably the most seen crystal in blood analysis, but it’s important to realize that cholesterol is not the problem when you see the crystals, acidity is.  

These are red blood cells that have a thorny appearance. This is usually indicative of kidney stress and crenation (the shrinking of the cell by dehydration). 

Immune System, Parasites, Bacteria, and Fungal Forms

Healthy White Blood Cell
These cells are made up of lymphocytes and leukocytes. They form the basis of the immune system. There are approximately one or two white cells for every 500 red cells. When there is an elevated count it is usually a sign of an infection. The white blood cells protect us from infectious diseases and will destroy any cells that have mutated.  

A fungus that feeds on undigested food and sugar in the blood. The principle yeast found in the blood is Candida Albicans. It is usually found in people with cancer, fibromyalgia and those with chronic fatigue. This condition is also indicative of over acidity as yeast cannot live in an alkaline environment. 

L-Form Bacteria
This is a bacterial infection (it’s hard to see in this picture) that is shaped like a butterfly. This usually signifies a condition of low immunity and high blood sugar.  

 Rod Form Bacteria
This is an advanced form of a bacterial infection and is regarded as a serious indicator of a weak immune system. These bacteria produce very toxic acid byproducts as a result of their metabolic processes. 

Parasitized Red Blood Cells
This is bacteria or parasites that get inside the cells. Of course the cell will die, and unless they are stopped by the immune system, they will continue to attack other cells.  

Fungal Forms
Fungi can spread throughout your body through the blood and develop colonies. They usually develop slowly and are hard to diagnose and usually resistant to treatment. They are seldom fatal and most of the time go unnoticed. This is a sign of poor assimilation of nutrients and an acidic condition in the body fluids.


Acupuncture has a powerful effect at reducing the craving for drugs and healing the damaged neuroendocrine’s symptoms that encourage drug and alcohol use

Acupuncture is rapidly increasing in popularity as an effective aid in the treatment of many addictions—from alcohol and pushed / prescribed drugs to nicotine and overeating because it works!

Scientifically substantiated clinical evidence supports the use of acupuncture for addiction in both reducing withdrawal symptoms as well as activating those centers in the brain which produce the natural neurochemicals those who seek relief in drugs and alcohol are deficient in producing themselves.

The first acupuncture detoxification clinic in the United States opened in 1974, at the Lincoln Memorial Hospital in the South Bronx section of New York City. At first, acupuncture was used as an adjunct to methadone treatment, but such good results were obtained with acupuncture that methadone was dropped from the program. According to the clinic’s Director, Dr. Michael Smith, the success rate with acupuncture is substantially higher than that of more conventional programs. Unlike methadone, which is itself a highly addictive drug that is used primarily as a heroin substitute for those addicted to heroin, acupuncture is a natural procedure with no side effects, and it can treat a wide range of addictions because it actually stimulates the body to produce its own opiates and other inhibitory (feel good) neurotransmitters.  It works equally well for cocaine, crack, heroin and alcohol addictions, users of psychedelics, and people addicted to barbiturates and amphetamines. Because psychiatric drugs follow along the same biochemical pathways as street drugs (and are even more toxic in many cases) acupuncture is equally effective for psychiatric drug addictions and is very helpful in aiding the repair of damaged brain and other organ tissues from the toxic effects these drugs inflict on the delicate organs of the neuroendocrine system. 

Those suffering from neurochemical adaptation (addiction) report a marked reduction in craving for drugs, a relief from symptoms of withdrawal, and feelings of relaxation along with improved sleep. The success of acupuncture in the treatment of addiction has inspired the opening of public-funded acupuncture detoxification programs throughout the US.

There is strong physiological evidence supporting the use of acupuncture for push/prescribed drug and alcohol addiction. Research has shown that acupuncture can raise the level of endorphins in the nervous system. Resembling opiates in structure and function, endorphins (gr: morphine within) are the body’s natural opiates (pain killers) and are displaced and down-regulated (less naturally produced by the body) by regular heroin, opium and alcohol use which is why there is such a profound withdrawal from these drugs if reversal of the neurochemical adaptation is not supported properly by providing the body and mind (brain) everything it requires to produce it’s own again – quickly.  Their level is also increased by exercise, and they are responsible for the phenomenon called "runner’s high", a feeling of euphoria.  The key to maximize endorphin production is found in diet, exercise, environmental hygiene (avoiding situations and people that cause stress) and for many, spirituality.  Many adjunct therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, CES etc… also stimulate the body’s beta-endorphin and enkephalin production and nutritional therapies such as D-phenylalanine actually serve to preserve what is made by reducing the enzyme activity that digests beta-endorphins.

Cravings and withdrawal symptoms experienced by people giving up smoking, drugs (legal / illegal) or alcohol can be quickly alleviated by raising the level of endorphins in the nervous system. Some researchers postulate that one mechanism that drives the desire to eat is also mediated by the endorphin level in the brain, which would explain why acupuncture helps dieters to control their appetites.

Chinese Medicine has its own explanation of how acupuncture works. Chinese medical theory is based on the concept of yin and yang, which are dynamic and complementary opposites observed in all the processes of nature. In the human body in regards to homeostasis (natural mental health) this can be observed as balance of the parasympathetic (inhibitory) / sympathetic (excitatory) nervous systems.  In a healthy individual, yin and yang are in relative balance (homeostasis). Many drug addictions are encouraged by a deficiency of yin (parasympathetic nervous system) because it is burned out sometimes very early in life by trying to keep up (maintain homeostasis) with the over stimulating effects of neurotoxicity (over stimulating – causing nervous system damage) found in pesticides, MSG, aspartame, high sugar and processed food diets, caffeine, heavy metal poisoning, reactions to chemical sensitivities, and unrealistically demanding and over stimulating (stressful) lifestyles. All of these have a very profound effect on the neuroendocrine system which causes deficiencies in the body’s natural feel good neurotransmitters and hormones.  Chinese medical theory, which comprehends the body metaphorically, relates yin to substance, quiescence, and the element of water. Yang relates to function, activity, and the element of fire. Yin nourishes, and yang consumes. When yin, or the water element, is deficient, fire is not held in check and rages out of control. Since it is the product of a deficit, it is called empty fire because it has no substance to fuel it. On a psychological level, such an imbalance creates feelings of anxiety, depression, panic, acute perception of stress, emptiness and desperation. Physiologically, it manifests as frenetic mind/body hyperactivity. The afflicted is driven to self medicate, but the drug exacerbates the fire and further depletes the yin.

Acupuncture treatment for drug / alcohol addiction involves nourishing the yin by treating points on the outside of the ear and other key areas to stimulate detoxification of the liver, kidneys and lower bowel.  At Shangri La BioSpa and Resort our patients receive superior benefits from acupuncture treatment because the diet and TNT they receive in conjunction with their treatment serves to provide the raw materials required to produce the endorphins and other neurochemicals acupuncture is used to naturally stimulate in order to bring up yin therefore balancing yin/yang.
