with its excessive gas and burping is another plague of the elderly. They would
rather not go to church nor visit a friend than embarrass themselves in that
It all begins with the stomach although chewing food well is essential for really
good digestion. Dentures should fit perfectly so the mouth does not develop
sores. Using denture cream is not a good substitute for correct fit and is toxic.
Denture plastic is often toxic, even containing mercury in its composition!
Toxins in plastic can seep! Such toxins lower the immunity of the mouth and
throat and stomach since it all flows down into the stomach. Low immunity in
the mouth permits throat infections to be chronic. If your elderly loved one
has a red-looking mouth or throat, instead of pink, an infection is going on
in spite of no coughs and no complaints.
It will do no good to keep zapping bacteria when reinfection is so easy. First
kill the bacteria in the dentures by soaking in 70% grain alcohol. Then test
the dentures for toxins. Soak the dentures in water for several hours.
Rinse and soak again in fresh water. Repeat a third time to insure that any
toxin found came from the dentures, not the saliva. Save this water for testing.
Search for heavy metals in the denture water. If you find any, you know the
dentures are toxic! Get new ones, made of uncolored methaciylate (see
Dental Cleanup, page 409).
The denture-soak should kill bacteria each night. Plastic has tiny pores where
bacteria can hide. Use 70% grain alcohol which you make yourself or plain vodka
which is about 50% alcohol. Since alcohol evaporates and is expensive, use a
wide mouth jar with close fitting non-metal lid for all this. Fish them out
with your toothbrush so it gets sterilized too. It only takes minutes to kill
everything. Commercial denture cleaners are much more toxic than grain alcohol;
dont use them.
Use food grade hydrogen peroxide or salt water to brush teeth in your mouth,
never toothpaste. Toothpaste has toxic metals (tin, fluoride, strontium) besides
benzene pollution. See the section on brushing teeth (page 532) for details
and sources. If you are responsible for this daily chore, use homemade floss
(2 pound to 4 pound nylon fish line) first; then
brush. If your loved one is seated they may be able to handle the brush by themselves,
giving them pride in the achievement.
If an elderly person refuses or cant wear dentures, provide food that
is soft and without chunks since this decides whether the stomach can digest
it. The stomach is the weak point of the digestive process for the elderly because
nearly all dont produce enough acid to get the job done.
The body produces hydrochloric acid (HCL) which gets pushed into the stomach
from the blood! The enzyme, carbonic anhydrase, a zinc enzyme, is involved.
Not many ways are known to stimulate this whole process. Drinking water before
meals stimulates it in unknown ways but is hard to do for the elderly. Next
best is to provide acid.
Because strong HCL would dissolve teeth it is not available as a solution to
aid digestion. Ask a pharmacist to make a 1% I-ICL solution and use 10 drops
of it in a beverage at mealtime once a day. HCL as a tablet (Betaine HCL)
is available but doesnt have enough HCL in it.
Using a lemon or vinegar and honey beverage helps with digestion although this
provides citric or acetic acid, not hydrochloric. These acids are completely
metabolized so they dont add to the body acid level. But the fact that
it is not hydrochloric means that it cant kill bacteria and parasites
in the stomach like regular hydrochloric acid could. The stomach becomes a haven
for Salmonellas and other bacteria and this is the biggest digestive plague
of the elderly. Salmonellas dig deep into the stomach wall, safe from antibiotics
and stomach acid and arent washed away with the food. When they take over
the region near the top of the stomach, it weakens the esophageal sphincter
and food keeps coming back up a bita most uncomfortable development, especially
after supper or when lying down.
When the Salmonellas spread out further to invade the diaphragm around the sphincter,
the diaphragm weakens, and lets a bit of the stomach up through the hole.
This causes hiatal hernia distress. Dont settle your loved one
in an easy chair after supper. This presses the stomach upward and the food
up, too. Leave them sitting at the table a while, then walk a bit, to get the
food down lower. The food will sink lower if some of it can leave the stomach
at the lower pyloric end. But if Salmonellas are entrenched here, too,
the lower end does not have enough action to push the food through the valve.
Drugs like ReglanTM are given to speed this up.
What helps most is getting digestion completed. This sets up the natural cues
for emptying. Digestive enzyme tablets have been in popular use to help digestion.
But they may not be safe since they have not been sterilized. Always try the
vinegar and honey method first. Coughing during eating is a sign that the diaphragm
is irritated (by a hiatal hernia). If drinking water starts the coughing, omit
it at the beginning of meals. Work in sips during the meal.
Salmonella and Shigella
Some Salmonella infections can bring dizziness to your elderly
person. Dizziness is another plague of the elderly, keeping them from
going shopping, getting to church and even from getting around their own homes.
Drugs such as Antivert are given but only take the edge off the problem. Feeling
dizzy can make your loved one home bound and stuck to a walker for every move.
Salmonellas, along with Shigellas, produce very toxic substances
that cause dizziness. There are three common Salmonella varieties: Salmonella
enteridiuis, Salmonella paratyphi, and Salmonella typhimurium (386,
380, 354 KHz). Kill Salmone/las daily for a month by taking Lugols
iodine (6 drops in a half cup water, after meals and bedtime, see Rec4ws).
Unfortunately, this will not kill Shigellas; follow the Bowel Program
(page 546) to get them.
During this time set up a system of sterilizing all dairy products (see Milk,
page 425) since this is the source of reinfection. Set up a system of rinsing
fingers (and fingernails) in 10% grain alcohol in the bathroom. Deli food and
restaurant salads carry Salmonellas and Shigellas, too. Kill them,
routinely, after eating such food due to necessity. A warm stomach full of food
at a neutral pH is just the right culture condition- for these bacteria. Its
like putting yeast into a bowl of warm water, flour and sugar. In half an hour
it is overflowing with growth.
Once Salmonella is entrenched in an organ it is difficult to eliminate.
Only an electric zapper can kill them all (in an organ, not the bowel). If your
body has the right conditions (like a low acid stomach) to let them grow you
dare not swallow another one! Shigellas arrive with dairy foods, too,
but prefer the lower intestine as their headquarters. Indigestion that starts
right after eating is probably due to Salmonellas. If your indigestion
comes in the night, this suggests Shigellas, since theyve had time
to reach their favorite place further down.
Campylobacter and E coli, other digestive bacteria, are sometimes the culprits.
The Bowel Program is effective against these also. Besides getting digestive
improvement you get mental improvement, less depression, less dizziness, less
irritability after clearing these up. Remember that eating bacteria and killing
them later will not solve the problem. Stopping eating them will.
Digestion problems that remain after eliminating bacteria can be diagnosed
in a rational way. Ask these questions:
Is the stool orangish-yellow, or very pale, instead of greenish brown?
If so, bile isnt getting delivered to the small intestine from the liver.
Is there abdominal pain? (More about this on page 97). It may be due
to Ascaris, flukes, or other parasites.
Is there constipation? This wilt let wastes accumulate, all the longer
for bacteria to thrive on them.
Is there bloating? This is due to gas made by bacteria.
Does the stool float? If so, it must be lighter than water and contain
fat or a great deal of undigested material.
Bile is necessary for digestion. Absorption of fat and calcium depends on bile
mixing with the food. When fat isnt absorbed, it stays in the intestine.
Fat is lighter than water; it makes the stool float. Feces should not float.
When the stool floats you can assume that calcium isnt being absorbed
either, leaving the blood in a deficit which will be taken from the bones.
If the stool floats or is orangish in color prepare your elderly person for
a liver cleanse (page 552) to clear a bile duct of obstruction. They get quite
fond of these cleanses and will ask to have one. Liver cleanses are completely
safe, even for persons in their 80s. One of the stones pictured on page
554 came from a woman age 97. The general rules apply to the extremely elderly:
kill all parasites first by upper if possible, otherwise by herbal parasite
killing. Do a kidney cleanse (page 549) first, using half a dose instead of
the regular dose, for three to six weeks. Attend your loved one in person for
the liver cleanse, have a commode at bedside, protect bedding from accident:
use paper underwear if necessary. Share the joy of getting gallstones out painlessly
with your loved one; let them see and count them if they wish before you flush
them (use a flashlight).
Be extra careful with the skin cleansing. Hot water soothes and heals. Use starch
skin soother to dispense onto the wet paper towel, besides borax solution and
alcohol. Dont use ordinary soap. The starch skin softener gives the smoothness
of soap, and prevents the pain of friction. An elderly person may have no diarrhea
at all with the Epsom salts! Evidently the body absorbs all the magnesium so
eagerly, none is left in the intestine to absorb water and create diarrhea.
It is especially important though to rehydrate your elderly person after a diarrhea.
This time they do not balk at water consumption. The liver cleanse, it seems,
gives them new thirst as well as new appetite. But it doesnt last long.
As the stones from the far corners of the liver move forward, they compact into
larger stones and plug the ducts again. Their previous symptoms return. Try
to give a cleanse once a month until the dark color of the stool returns and
it no longer floats.
The benefits of a liver cleanse will last longer if valerian herb is taken the
day after the cleanse and from then forward. It may be preventing spasm of the
bile ducts. Use 2 oz. of the herb (cut) in 3 cups water. Simmer for 5-10 minutes,
let settle or strain. Add honey to sweeten. Give a few tbs. every 4 hours (or
6 capsules) for several days followed by a daily dose at bedtime.
If constipation is a problem, use an herbal product rather than a drug until
you have removed the cause. Cascara sagrada (half dosage) or prunes work for
many people. Adding roughage to the diet is a good solution but often doesnt
work. If you try bran, you should add vitamin C and boil it, first, because
it is very moldy. But even eating tree branches for supper wont move a
bowel that has the wrong bacteria in it.
Bacteria are part of the cause; and part of the result! Constipation increases
the bacteria level which causes further constipation! You may solve the constipation
problem immediately by zapping. Even though this kills some good
with some bad bacteria, no harm is done. The stool is recolonized
in one to two days.
Poop Your Troubles Away
Two bowel movements a day are the minimum necessary for good health. The first
one should be in the morning. The morning cup of water, drunk at the bedside
has the magical ability to move the bowels. Cold water may fail. But the water
effect only works in the early morning. Waiting until after breakfast may not
work. Notice the energy lift your loved one gets from this most primitive body
cleanse. Take advantage of this to exercise them. Go immediately for the morning
walk. This might be the only time of day they can enjoy their walk.
Walking and liver cleansing are the most health-promoting
activities you can do for your loved one.
Make walking as essential as eating. Walking is not merely walking about the
house or shopping. Walking should be done outdoors. Walking is a brisk exercise,
done as speedily as possible and lasting at least A hour. Only if the
weather doesnt allow outdoor walking can an indoor walk be substituted.
Dont let your elderly person choose whether they will walk that day. To
overcome resistance, find a cheerful neighborhood person willing to do this
task for pay. The need to respond to a new stranger energizes the elderly more
than your persuasion can.
Diabetes is a common development in the elderly. If your loved one is already
on a pill for beginning diabetes, take this as your challenge never to let it
get worse. It is not a chronic metabolic deterioration. It is a destruction
of the pancreas (specifically the islets) by the pancreatic fluke which is attracted
to the pancreas by wood alcohol. Zap flukes and eliminate wood alcohol as described
in the section on diabetes (page 173).
Use no artificial sweetener and no beverages besides milk, water and the recipes
given in this book. This is one regimen your loved one will not resent. They
are well motivated to prevent the need for giving themselves daily shots of
insulin. Use this motivation to acquire the taste for new foods and beverages.

Burping, bloating, and being gassy are signs that your digestion isnt
perfect. What has gone wrong? Burps are gases escaping upward. Bloating is due
to bubbles of gas causing pressure. Your body does not make gas! Gas can only
be made by bacteria. The immediate conclusion is that bacteria are growing in
your digestive tract (stomach and intestines) that should not be allowed to
do so. They are likely to be the common enteric (digestive tract) bacteria:
Salmonellas, Shigellas, E. colt, Bacteroidesfragilis.
You may wish to identify them before killing them with the zapper. Or you can
sweep through the whole bacterial and viral range killing all with a frequency
generator. The good effects can be felt in an hour, although the last gases
may take days to get rid of Salmonella and Bacteroides fragilis are two bacteria
that can eat bile, and can do without oxygen, so they are cornmonly seen in
the liver. Bacteroides probably escaped from its roundworm host, Ascaris. Salmonella
probably came with non-sterile dairy food.
If you have an intestinal problem involving digestion or pain, start immediately
to boil all dairy foods. Stop eating those that cant be boiled: cheese
sandwiches, yogurt, ice cream. It must be boiled for 10 seconds. The bacteria
are in the liver because your liver attempted to strain them out of your blood
and lymph in order to kill them with bile. Instead, they turned around and ate
the bile, turning it brown as evidence. Now, every time the liver lets down
bile into the intestine (and stomach), a population of these bacteria goes with
it. The intestine becomes a seething mass of bacteria, bubbling away as they
produce C01, SO2, I-12S, Co (carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide,
carbon monoxide). Some of these gases are quite toxic.
Help your liver expel its bacterial overload with liver cleanses (page 552)
until all the bile is a beautiful bright green. This is evident as dark brown
bowel movements. Without the green color of bile added to your intestine, the
bowel movement remains light colored, such as tan, yellow or orange! By stopping
eating polluted food, killing bacteria and cleansing the liver, digestion becomes
Of course, there must be enough acid in the stomach and digestive enzymes produced
to make good digestion possible. Otherwise, leftover food goes to feed the waiting
Persons with a chronic digestion problem may also find they harbor lead, cadmium,
or mercury in the intestine! This is very good in a sense. Your body has kept
these toxins in the intestine, preventing it from going into your vital organs.
The bad news is that their presence in the intestine could start an intestinal
disease. Toxins in the intestine would inhibit your immune system (here the
white blood cells are in clumps called Peyers patches), from gobbling
up the bad enteric bacteria. Maybe the good bacteria
found your intestine too toxic to live there. Clean up your dentalware. Search
for lead and cadmium in your drinking water. After improving your lifestyle,
continue to do liver cleanses. Keep your goals high: a flat tummy that feels
energetic, no burps or gas.
Stomach ache (page 98) and hiatal hernia (page 133) are also digestive problems
but are dealt with under pain. (See also lower abdominal pains, page 97, and
appendicitis, page 100).
Alan Barth had his two young Sons with him. One of them had a very sensitive
stomach, a poor appetite! wanting nothing but sweets or chips to eat. The 16
year old had aches and pains that were keeping him out of sports. The father
had a tonsil problem; they swelled if he drank milk. One problem was obvious.
Their milk was tainted with Sa/mone f/as and Shigellas, setting up throat problems
for the father, stomach problems for one child and a pain syndrome for the other
child. Boiling all their milk, not bringing raw chicken into the house (Salmonella
source) and stopping eating yogurt and cheese was the solution. There were traces
of lead in their tap water and the house air had vanadium in it, announcing
a gas leak. They were all heavily parasitized. When these problems were cleaned
up, the whole familys health improved.
Kae Nakajima, middle age, had a history of ulcers and stomach problems. She
took a lot of Zantac and Tagamet over the years. She was drinking coffee, tea
and colas. She had Ascaris and cadmium in her stomach. Five months later she
had cleaned up everything except dentalware and was feeling very good. She didnt
need any medicines. She still had arthritis and sinus problems but felt so encouraged
she had the dental work scheduled.
Sven Lippencott, age 4, had been tube fed for several years due to weak stomach
action. He was quite underweight for his age. He had a population of intestinal
fluke in his stomach along with arsenic (pesticide). The rest of the family
also had intestinal flukes. After killing parasites and washing the upholstered
furniture, Svens appetite went up so he ate more by mouth and grew immediately.
But he soon picked up Ascaris and cat liver fluke (there was an indoor cat).
Then the whole family got intestinal flukes again. They all, including Sven,
drank carbonated beverages whenever they wished. With both parents working it
would not be possible to discipline the habit. Sven had wood alcohol, methyl
butyl ketone, hexanedione, methylene chloride and toluene buildup making his
