One way to suppress nutrition and its health benefits is the establishment of a nebulous, arbitrary and meaningless standard of measurement such as the RDA or “Recommended Daily Allowance.”
The purpose of the RDA hoax is to get the public to accept it as the gold standard. This is what has happened.
A prime example is in the case of vitamin D. The RDA for vitamin D has indeed practically wiped out rickets in the United States. But this is a camouflage for the need of much higher amounts of vitamin D—1,000 to 3,000 units daily even up to 10,000 in the case of tuberculosis (TB)—as proven therapy for patients with cancer, heart disease, dementia, autoimmune disease, influenza A, chronic pain, depression, gingivitis, the common cold and dozens of other diseases associated with vitamin D deficiency.
Laboratory evidence shows that TB can be prevented with vitamin D. Then straight off the press, a controlled clinical study showing vitamin D resulted in a 100 percent cure rate for TB patients, but they treated TB patients with 10,000 units of vitamin D a day—not the RDA 400.
Of course “orthodox medicine” screams toxicity. If you can experience natural healing therapy, you don’t need drugs. As Royal Lee, M.D., said, “One of the greatest deceptions is the treatment of symptoms with drugs instead of nutrition.” Starvation is being treated with drugs instead of nutrition.
As in the case with vitamin D, a certain amount of nutrition is required to get a therapeutic result—many times a large amount. This is not supposed to be known to the public.
The RDA for iodine is outright deception. The medical establishment, Institute of Medicine, says 150 micrograms per day for adults and less for children.
Guy Abraham, M.D., at UCLA School of Medicine and researcher of iodine says that 12.5 milligrams per day (that’s 12,500 micrograms) is the optimal dose, and that’s 83 times more than the RDA. Chances are very high that most of us are not getting nearly enough iodine.
We think in terms of overdose but the risk of underdose may be the highest risk when taking nutritional supplements. The big exception to this would be taking mega doses of synthetic vitamins. When we use synthetic instead of natural or organic, we go from food to pharmacology. Pharmacology is chemicals made in the laboratory. It is not food or nutrition.
The high risk of public fixation on the RDA is that we underdose on vital nutrition as in vitamin D and iodine.
We have to think of iodine in the United States as a dietary supplement because there is little in the soil that would translate into food production. The Japanese consume more iodine mostly from seaweed and they have much lower breast cancer. In fact, they have much lower rates of all cancer including prostate cancer.
Forty percent of the U.S. population has hypothyroidism, which is low thyroid function leading to a multitude of illnesses including heart disease and cancer.
So many people are on thyroid medication (hopefully on Armour natural thyroid), but all these people should also be taking iodine. The reason is that unless we get enough iodine with our thyroid supplement, we may be raising the risk of breast cancer and prostate cancer. The fact is if we had enough diet iodine, we wouldn’t have low thyroid function and wouldn’t need medication.
Hypothyroidism is a nutritional deficiency of the vital mineral iodine. It is extremely fundamental to health.
You can check your own thyroid function. It’s simply a matter of body temperature. The normal body temperature is 98.6º F.
Take your underarm temperature in the morning before you get out of bed and as you wake up, preferably with a shake down mercury thermometer. Leave the thermometer on the nightstand or table by your bed at night. Take your morning temperature at rest, underarm temperature for five days in sequence and record your average—which you get by adding them up and dividing by five.
If you are as much as one degree under 98.6, you are hypothyroid and you at least need daily iodine supplementation. I can’t go into it here, but conventional blood tests in a doctor’s clinic do not accurately show your thyroid function. Tens of thousands of people are struggling daily with low energy and obesity just because a blood test showed “normal” thyroid function. Do the body temperature test on yourself and your family.
If your thyroid is two to four degrees low, you need thyroid hormone by prescription from your doctor. Ask for the Armour natural. You should also take daily iodine supplement (see below for sources and amount).
Iodine displaces or flushes chlorine, bromine, fluorine, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and mercury with safety. In today’s world this is huge!
Sources and Amounts
I have never read of any injury because of iodine but don’t take more than 12 to 14 milligrams daily. Japanese researchers say that they have found cases of hypothyroidism caused by excess iodine, 20 mgs daily or more.
Lugol’s iodine is an old favorite. Two to four drops in water for an adult would be okay.
Iodoral from compounding pharmacies and some health food stores—one tablet daily.
Another choice is Prolamine Iodine. This is an all-natural, vegetarian source.
All three can be purchased from Amazon.com.
Iodine is powerful and can be used in many ways. It’s an excellent water purifier. It can cure infection.
From The Cure for All Cancers by Hulda Clark, Ph.D.: “Salmonella and Shigella are two stomach and digestive tract bacteria. Six drops of Lugol’s solution can end it all for Salmonella and Shigella. If you have gas and bloating, pour yourself ½ glass of water. Add six drops of Lugol’s exactly, stir with wood or plastic and drink at once. The action is noticeable in an hour. Take this dose four times a day, after meals and at bedtime for three days in a row, then as needed.
“Notice how calming six drops of Lugol’s can be, soothing a manic stage and bringing a peaceful state where anxiety ruled before. Lugol’s is perfectly safe (if not allergic) to take day after day when needed because of its peculiar attaching property. It arrives in the stomach and then reattaches to everything in proximity. Doomed are Salmonella and Shigella; doomed also are eggs (cysts) of parasites that might be in the stomach.”
Unless we read a lot (which I recommend), we go by the RDA hoax. As you can see in just two examples of vitamin D and iodine, the RDA leads us into, or keeps us in, a deficiency state and disease.

Seborrhea. Half the people have some form of it. Seborrhea is a common skin problem. It causes a red, itchy rash and white scales. When it affects the scalp, it is called “dandruff.” It can be on parts of the face as well, including the folds around the nose and behind the ears, the forehead, and the eyebrows and eyelids. On the body, seborrhea often occurs in the middle part of the chest, around the navel and in the skin folds under the arm, below the breasts and in the groin and buttocks area.
Who gets seborrhea? Infants may get seborrhea and it is known as “cradle cap.” Cradle cap goes away after about six months. It may also affect the diaper area and look like a diaper rash.
Seborrhea also affects adults and elderly people, and is more common in men than in women. It occurs more frequently in people with oily skin and is also common in patients with Parkinson’s disease or AIDS.
The cause of seborrheic dermatitis is not fully understood. It is likely that a number of factors such as hormones and stress can cause it. A yeast-like organism plays an important role.
Treatment will help keep seborrhea under control. It’s important to keep your body clean. The best treatment I have found is Neutrogena®T/Gel®, (which was passed on to us by a reader.) It kills the itch.
Congress has passed a $787 billion spending bill aimed at—congressional Democrats said—stimulating the U.S. economy. But it won’t stimulate anything other than the green ink and paper industry. Because it is an excuse for the Federal Government to turn its money-printing presses on full speed and keep them running 24/7.
This type of stimulus package is doomed to fail. The French tried something similar in the 18th Century when John Law was retained to advise the government in economic policy. He advocated that money was credit and credit was determined by the needs of trade. Therefore, the money in existence is determined by the supply of credit in the economy rather than the imports of gold or in trade balances. So Law proposed the establishment of a state-chartered bank with the power to issue unbacked paper currency. Sound familiar?
Within four years France’s Banque Générale collapsed following a run on the bank, and France and the rest of Europe were plunged into a severe economic recession. The result of Law’s banking schemes so traumatized the French people that until recently the very word “banque” was anathema to the French financial community.
A similar experience hit Germany in the early part of the 20th Century. From 1918 to 1923, the Weimar Republic began printing money at a dizzying rate, setting off hyperinflation. Prices were rising so fast that workers receiving their pay would immediately run to the store to buy foodstuffs before prices climbed again. In trying to keep up with the falling currency rate, Reichsbank printed a 1,000-billion Mark note that was so worthless that when it was spent few bothered to collect the change. By 1923, with one dollar equal to one trillion Marks, the collapse of German currency was complete.
Fast forward to 2009 in the United States. Less than a year after the Fed authorized spending $850 billion to spur the economy the Congress is already doubling the spending. Where does the money come from? Thin air.
It is fiat money, based on nothing. And it dooms the country to an economic collapse.
There’s one way to prepare yourself, and you need to begin immediately. Buy gold, as its value is about to soar! How do we know? We use history as our guide.
At the peak of the bull market in the 1920s, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was more than 20 times higher than the price of gold. When the market crashed it bottomed out at about 36, roughly a 1-1 ratio with the price of one ounce of gold. The next boom came in 1966, and again the Dow was worth 20 times the price of one ounce of gold. When the bottom of the next recession hit the Dow was worth about 850 points and gold was about $850 per ounce.
Next came the bull market that began in 2003. The Dow peaked at 14,164.53 on Oct. 9, 2007. That month gold hit $750 per ounce, which was Dow-to-gold ratio of almost 19-1. Since then the Dow has lost almost half its value and gold is climbing. Look what gold can do as it approaches a 1-1 ratio.
Gold doesn’t even have to reach a 1-1 ratio to give spectacular returns. Consider, with gold at $940 and Dow at 7,000, the ratio is at 7-1. Even if the Dow contracts another 1,000 points, gold at 3-1 would more than double in price to $2,000.
It’s difficult to argue with history, but if you’re still afraid to go with gold you have an alternative. Buy stock in green ink.
A vaccination is a method by which diluted disease agents are introduced into the system by avoiding the natural defense mechanisms of the body. They are in a sense, parachuted behind enemy lines. Without any means to expel these agents (pathogens), they (the viruses) are eventually incorporated into the cells of the body.
This creates a profound confusion throughout the entire organism as to what is actually the organism (self) which is to be protected, and what is foreign (nonself), which is to be expelled. At some point the immune system will begin to attack cells within the body to rid the organism of the foreign substance. This results in chronic auto-immune disease.
It is no mystery how much autoimmune disease there is in America today.
The "people" who perpetrate the "immunization" crimes are well versed in psychological warfare. Mass crimes are created under the altruistic phrase "for the greater good." You who read my articles are able to translate "for the greater good" to always mean a transfer of more power to the corporate state.
They know that there are several years between the "immunization" shots and the appearance of autoimmune diseases. This is the perfect crime based on confusion of cause and effect.
Nazi Germany started mass compulsory immunization in 1940. The number of cases of diphtheria increased from 40,000 to 250,000 by 1945, virtually all among immunized children.
Bottom line for you: Mass inoculation and immunization is nothing more nor less than commerce via an alliance between big government and big pharmaceuticals. Further, this is an assault upon the people under a medical pretense.
Reference: "DPT; A Shot in the Dark" by Harris Coulter.
The literature states that homeopathic physicians can antidote vaccinations. See "The Case Against Immunizations" by Richard Moskowitz M.D.
Modern Americans can be persuaded to believe anything. It is not enough to lead a man toward the sale of a drug. He must also believe that a drug and the doctor who prescribed it will help him. Illegal drugs are on the fringe but legal drugs have subdued the whole population without one in a million suspecting it. The drug business is a commercial enterprise that has nothing to do with benefiting public health.
The following is “Statin Woes”:
"Go to www.askapatient.com and click on ratings and then Lipitor®, where you will find almost 700 comments on the cholesterol-lowering drug. What is interesting is the very high number of patients reporting side effects, including severe fatigue, joint pain, digestive problems, craving for fatty foods, difficulty breathing, thinning hair, depression, lack of concentration, memory lapses, thoughts of suicide, nightmares, peripheral neuropathy, paralysis, dizziness, painful charley horses, weight gain, blurred vision, headaches, insomnia, difficulty walking, rashes, blisters, slurred speech, eczema and ‘itching all over.’ Yet most of the ratings are positive, with patients expressing satisfaction at bringing their cholesterol levels down, and persevering in spite of the debilitating side effects. Such is the level of cholesterol anxiety engendered by the phony lipid hypothesis. Perhaps ‘complete decline in the power of reason’ should be added to the list of side effects from cholesterol-lowering drugs." (Quoted from Wise Traditions, Fall 2006 Volume 7 Number 3)
Cod liver oil is all-natural and cheaper than Lipitor®, and can even boost your memory.
The Federal Government is proposing an $787 billion economic stimulus plan to energize the economy, but will pumping that money into the economy stimulate anything other than the speed at which currency collapses? The simple answer is no.
The only way for true economic growth is by the transfer of services, goods or wealth between people (or businesses) who actually produce something. In other words, if someone provides a service and gets gold or silver (actual wealth) or widgets for compensation, both the service provider and widget maker has benefited and each has something that has bettered his standard of living.
If the one who performed the service uses the widgets to acquire trinkets which help him to perform his service, then the service performer has benefited. The trinket maker has also benefited, and can put the widgets to use. This sort of transfer has worked from the beginning of time, when the farmer took his produce to market where it was sold or bartered in exchange for wealth, tools, supplies and seeds so he could begin producing food for next year.
But the Fed produces nothing but more paper money, and it takes from the producers. Therefore, its only solution for the collapsing financial system is to steal wealth from the producers of goods and services through taxation and provide more and more fiat money and credit. This can only mean final and complete collapse of the U.S. dollar. Everyone should be aware of this and move as much as possible out of the dollar.
A second and primary concern of the Fed is their control of public perceptions. They must keep the crowd quiet. They positively do not want a panic and run on the banks. The very last thing central banks want is transparency. The vested interest (the paper money crowd) will color the news more and more.
Historically, the propensity of governments is to debase the currency. Americans now know what a sector collapse looks like. This chaos will continue for some time as businesses continue to cut back on inventories, production and numbers of employees or die altogether.
This should cause alert people to see the urgent need to move quickly to protect what they have.
Yes, I can easily believe that the crowd is still asleep but you readers are not.
Up-to-date Emergency Recommendations:
- Have some cash at home.
- Have some 1 oz. gold coins at home.
- Take delivery of long-term holding stock certificates if you have them. They are not tied to any broker. Your dividends will come straight to you.
- Have some silver coins at home.
- All major companies like GE and GM and the big banks are major derivative dealers. In these times small banks and small brokers may be safer.
- Avoid internet financial services, i.e. brokers and banks and be careful how you use the internet. The government is snooping and thieves are watching. Better to use fax or mail. This may not be private either, but better. Use the phone for travel plans.
- Consider a Swiss annuity denominated in Swiss francs. Call 1-800-331-0996 and give your name and address for more information.
- Buy oil, energy, uranium, and commodity related assets/stocks, including gold and silver stocks.
- Store gold coins in the Perth Mint if you have the funds. Get details on the web at www.perthmint.com.
- As always have basic food and water stored at home.
