What is Pain?
Pain is a mechanism in the body to alert us that something is wrong with our body and we need to attend to it.
Sadly, in modern Western medicine, pain is treated as something separate from the condition of the entire body and only focuses on the area with the pain; which makes no scientific sense at all.
The reason this makes no sense is because our body is not a set of random organs thrown together as separate systems that have nothing to do with each other. Our body is a symphony of symbiotic exchange, interdependency, mutual support and overall function; each individual cell contributing to the wholeness and soundness of the whole body.
The latest research by Dr. Paul Pearsall, as found in his book "The Hearts Code" about transplant medicine, shows that the quantum physics principal of "non-locality" seems to govern body systems and organs via mechanisms within the cells and tissue that are not yet fully understood. He discovered in his research that there are communication mechanism between organs, cells, the heart, the nervous system and brain that influence the entire body and that have never before been detected or measured. In other words, they see "the wind blowing" but don't know where it is coming from nor how it is blowing.
Yet, so far the research shows that the heart has more to do with governing the body than possibly even the brain. There is so much that we do not understand about body function. This is why I was forced outside of traditional, Western medicine into the study of ancient medicine forms that have proven the test of time for 5000 and 9000 years and actually work. I educated myself rigorously and was apprentice to the world's top alternative medicine practitioners. I saw people get well as a normal, matter of course. These answers are not being shared with the general public because it is a threat to the money machine that is Western Medicine.
What I have learned is, that if we do not understand how the body truly works; we will not be able to understand how to effectively manage pain nor improve our current state of well-being.
After eons of brainwashing that encourage us to seek out a priest, a shaman, a doctor to give us a "magic pill" or wave a magic wand for every little health concern, rather than arming ourselves with knowledge, behaving responsibly and doing everything we can to maintain our own wellness and well-being; people have surrendered their power to others who have a very narrow and limited approach and have thus limited their options and hindered their own ability to take their health to its highest possible level so they can enjoy the highest quality of life.
Our approach has worked 100% of the time for those who educate themselves, do their work and make the investment into their own wellness and well-being. But, not everyone will do that. So, basically, we can point you in the right direction, educate and support your process with working solutions; but you have to engage with those solutions by incorporating them into your life. Nonetheless, we are willing to provide you with the educational basics on how to reduce and manage pain totally for free.
Or you can just stay miserable, drugged out of your mind on pain meds and handfuls of pharmaceuticals that will only diminish your level of function and quality of life over time; every honest doctor will confirm this fact to you as they did for me. The choice is yours.
This is important because I used to take a handful of pharmaceuticals every day just to get through the day and every night to sleep through the night; I don't have to do that any more and every doctor I see is amazed by this. With your doctor's supervision; you can reduce heavy pain medications too! Click Here to read my story.

"Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food."
Ancient Wisdom Provides the Body with the Building Blocks for Pain Relief!
In order to have the lowest possible pain levels, the body needs to be as healthy as it can be. Here are some basic steps you can take to bring your body back into balance.
1. Eat in harmony with your genetic programming, ethnicity, geographical location, season and blood type...very much the way our ancestors ate.
This doesn’t mean conforming to a strict diet, but rather following the guidelines common sense suggests in a thoughtful, gradual way. Consider an organic whole foods diet with as little processed food and added sugar as possible. 64 oz a day of pure water, sunshine, fresh air, exercise and a healthy mindset are just as essential to reaching your dynamic health potential!
Ideally this means consuming fermented foods, raw dairy (if a safe, local source is available); organic meats; cold water fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel as long as they are NOT from the Pacific (Fukushima); intestine-activating fiber such as exotic grains, raw seeds, legumes, raw fruits and vegetables; superfoods like Bee Pollen/Royal Jelly/Propolis, Maca, Noni, Mangosteen, Goji berries; and no GMO grains (understanding that some people can’t tolerate wheat and other grains at all). A healthy balance of 40%-60% raw diet is ideal. Raw juices are an AWESOME way to give your body a super-nutrient boost and can bring the fastest health improvement ever! A good book to read is "Eat Right for Your Blood Type". To keep it simple: just avoid the foods that are on the "avoid" list.
2. Use foods rather than supplements to treat and prevent chronic illness.
Whole foods contain all of substances the body needs in order to efficiently process the benefits that food offers. The whole foods themselves work synergistically with the body and are far more effective than trying to play "chemistry set" with processed, targeted vitamin supplements that have been stripped of their vital co-factors and co-nutrients. Although less harmful than pharmaceuticals themselves, unless a supplement is actually comprised of a real food (not a bacteria that is fed vitamins), it has the potential to create micro-deficiencies and cause nutrient and chemical imbalances within the body that produce detrimental outcomes in the long run.
Why take the powerful antioxidant lycopene in a pill when you can eat a tomato that contains both lycopene and a number of other antioxidants, along with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that work together to prevent heart disease by decreasing cholesterol and lipid levels and stopping abnormal blood clotting?
3. Combine your healthy eating plan with a program to reduce stress and raise awareness about everything in your lifestyle that is impacting your wellness & pain level...which is everything.
If we received attention for being sick when we were children, or if we have found comfort in the attention that being sick can illicit, we may have a subconscious vested interest in staying sick that is sabotaging our conscious efforts to be well. Also, stress exhausts the adrenal glands, raises the blood pressure and cortisol levels and inhibits and interferes with every aspect of homeostasis and digestive functioning including our ability to efficiently absorb nutrients. Stressed-out people can’t make very good biological use of even the most healthy diets.
An attitude of gratitude and giving one's food our focus and attention while we are eating honors the bounty that we have received from the earth. When we do this we are honoring our Creator and the amazing bodies we were given that are about to benefit from the healthy bounty of our beautiful earth. Learning to eat slowly and mindfully will increase your enjoyment of meals, reduce your consumption of food (most of us eat so fast we don’t have time to register signals from our stomach that we are full), and help you make food choices that are better for you.
4. Find health professionals who will help you begin treatment of chronic pain & conditions with nutrition, therapies that have been around for thousands of years and effective spiritual and emotional stress management (as well as exercise) rather than medication.
Except in life threatening situations, this is the sane, common sense way to go. The prescription antacids, Type 2 diabetes drugs, and antidepressants that tens of millions of Americans use to decrease acid reflux, lower blood sugar, and improve mood, only treat symptoms and do not address causes. And they have very significant and often dangerous side-effects. We believe every one should give the genius intelligence of our bodies the chance to cleanse, nourish and align itself by reducing blockages to design function. After all, we are not suffering from a poison deficiency. Thus, If pharmaceuticals are only prescribed after a thorough trial of non-pharmacological treatment, we believe that they will rarely be necessary.
6. Don’t become a food fanatic.
If it isn't enjoyable, if it isn't tasty...it won't stick as a habit. The least stressful way to get healthier is to make it a gradual lifestyle shift that becomes your daily way of living versus crash diets and cleanses. When we are healthy, our body will AUTOMATICALLY reach its ideal weight. The good news is that healthy food is not only affordable, especially if you grow your own, but it is also delicious if you find good recipes! We have been tricking people into eating healthy for years and they never even realized it because it was done deliciously! Here's a link to some yummy, easy-to-make recipes for healthy food just for starters. For Pete's sake, you have the internet...find good healthy recipes!! you can even take your favorite recipes and adapt them by using healthier ingredients. Use the guidelines we have outlined and others that make sense to you, but don’t beat yourself up for deviating from them. Just notice the effect of a questionable choice, learn, and return to your program without beating yourself up mentally. If you feel like you HAVE TO have something sweet, the health food store has many delicious, healthy junk food alternatives like cookies, cakes, etc. Here's a link to local healthy foods in your geographical area!
And don’t waste your time and energy judging others for what they eat! It will just make you cranky and self-righteous. Remember, stressful emotional states ruin your digestion. And it sure doesn't help anyone else either.
The FOUNDATIONAL AND FIRST ACTION towards pain relief is to improve the overall wellness and well-being of the whole body and self. Every thought and emotion is an electro-chemical reaction in the body. Everything we put in or on our body effects our quality of life. This website is devoted to educating you as to how you can achieve your highest quality of life with maximum drug-free pain relief! So, stay tuned for new posts and information. Our monthly newsletter will also assist you in your journey.

Foods to Combat Inflammation to Lower Overall Pain Levels
"Inflammation is a necessary and important process that happens in the body. The redness, heat, and swelling that happen during injury are a protective response; a response that is designed to quickly repair and heal an injury. The body’s innate intelligence drives this necessary process. However, when inflammation isn’t quick, and targeted, it can cause a state of chronic inflammation leading to disease.
Chronic inflammation has recently been in the spotlight as the root cause of many diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes. Chronic inflammation occurs when your body receives on-going stress signals that activate the immune system to continue producing inflammatory chemicals. This can occur for a number of reasons including poor dietary choices, high stress levels, obesity, low-grade infections and more. The problem is, you don’t know this is happening and there is no blood test for chronic inflammation. But, with heart disease and cancer being the top two causes of death in the United States, it is in our best interest to address the underlying causes of inflammation.
The underlying cause of inflammation isn’t always apparent, however, dietary choices definitely impact the inflammatory status of the body. Common foods like anything genetically modified, wheat, soy, soda, diet soda, refined sugar, refined grains, industrialized animal products, packaged foods, non-organic fruits and veggies and baked goods, can promote increased inflammation in the body. In contrast, foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants, help combat the inflammatory burden in the body.
Omega-3 rich foods are important because the body cannot make Omega-3, it must come from the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are important in combating a number of illnesses including high cholesterol, heart disease, and dementia. Some foods high in omega-3 fatty acids include:
Eating foods rich in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and flavonoids also helps decrease inflammation in the body. These nutrients can be found in most organic fruits and vegetables. It is important to include as many colorful foods in your diet as possible to get a wide variety of disease fighting, age-defying antioxidants. The goal should be to “eat a rainbow” variety of foods every single day.
Spices also have unique compounds that support a proper inflammatory response. There are many benefits of common culinary spices, but some of the healthiest, antioxidant rich spices include:
Food is a primary tool that can be used to combat inflammation every single day. By including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant rich foods in your daily diet, you have the ability to influence the overall inflammatory burden in the body with each bite you take. Check out the recipe below that incorporates many of these anti-inflammatory principles in one dish.

Dr. Schultze's Master Tonic
Taken as a daily tonic, it can head colds, flu and infections off at the pass
The Healing Benefits of a Master Tonic:
This tincture has anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial qualities. Tinctures also have the ability to enter your system within a matter of seconds, much quicker than capsuled dry herbs that need to be digested first.
Use only organic vegetables for this tonic. Layer the ingredients into your jar by type. The amount of ingredients will depend upon the size of the mason jar that you are filling~ whether this is a pint, quart, or a gallon size, you will need enough vegetables to fill the jar 3/4 full with the 5 different layers of ingredients. The remaining 1/4 will be used for the apple cider vinegar.
Store the jar in a dark cupboard or in a paper bag and try to shake at least once per day. Your finished tincture will be ready in two weeks. When it is done, you will need to filter the mixture through a clean cheese cloth. This can be done by lining a strainer with the cheese cloth and then setting the strainer into a large mixing bowl. Pour the mixture into the strainer and let it drain, then with gloved hands you can squeeze the cloth tightly to release the remaining liquid. Transfer the tincture into bottle(s), and store in a dark cupboard as the formula will deteriorate with exposure to light. This tincture will last indefinitely when stored properly. You can use the leftover solids as a marinade or to season salad dressings, etc.
Traditional Dosage Recommendations:
1/2 to 1 ounce can be taken orally two or more times per day, and this can be increased to 5 or 6 times if you are dealing with an infection or illness.
The dosage is 1 or 2 ounces, two or more times daily. Swish and swallow. Don’t dilute with water.
For ordinary infections, a dose taken 5-6 times a day will deal with most conditions. Make up plenty as it does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special storage conditions.
You can dilute this mixture with pure water as this will make this very powerful tincture easier to swallow or use water as a chaser. Please consult your healthcare professional before taking.
Dr. Christopher's "Plague" Remedy Recipe
Tried and True Formula for Addressing Acute Issues
Mix well the following liquid ingredients:
8 parts apple cider vinegar
5 parts glycerine
5 parts honey
2 parts garlic juice, fresh
2 parts comfrey root concentrate
1 part wormwood concentrate
1 part lobelia leaf concentrate
1 part marshmallow root concentrate
1 part oak bark concentrate
1 part black walnut bark concentrate
1 part mullein leaf concentrate
1 part skullcap leaf concentrate
1 part uva ursi, hydrangea or gravel root concentrate
To make concentrates:
Each concentrate should be made individually. Start by soaking the herb in enough distilled water to cover it, for four hours, over night if it is a root. After soaking, add more distilled water so that the total added equals 16 oz. water per 4 oz. of herb. Use a multiple of these amounts for larger batches. Using this amount will make approx. one gallon of Anti-Plague.
Simmer the herbs on very low heat in a covered pan or double boiler for thirty minutes. Then strain the liquid into a clean pan. Put the liquid into a double boiler or on very low heat uncovered and simmer it down to one-fourth of the original volume (4 oz.) Only after all the ingredients have been prepared should the liquids be mixed. (Use only stainless steel pots.)
To make Garlic Juice: for the above amount use 2 1/2 lbs. of garlic - peel, blend in blender with vinegar (do not liquify). Let set for 3 days, shaking several times per day. Squeeze out liquid and measure. If needed add more vinegar to equal the 8 parts. Please consult your healthcare professional before taking.
Pets Need Healthy Lifestyles too!
Save Thousands in Vet Bills and Heartache
After 35 years of active Animal Rescue, we learned that spending the money for the best food possible saved us tens of thousands of dollars at the vet!
Like people, pets need clean air and water, moderate sunshine and exercise, healing, nutrient-dense, natural foods hearkening back to their ancestral diets. Dogs and cats were not designed to eat grains; it's not what they ate in the wild. No matter the type of pet we have; the closer our pets can come to their raw ancestral diets; the closer they will be to exceptional, extraordinary health! We have seen it over and over again in our rescued animals.
Our modern pets are suffering because of artificial-vitamin loaded, pesticide contaminated, GMO grain-based, high ash-low-nutrient foods that also include horrific tumor-laden, kill-shelter carcass "meal', sawdust and other worthless and harmful ingredients. It's so beyond belief what goes into pet food. Let's stop doing this to our babies!
Please enjoy the video playlist from Dr. Becker to the right of this article to explore the possibilities of increasing your pet's quality of life and wellness by simple changes in diet, water and air. Obviously, if you improve the air and water quality in your home, you AND your pets stand to benefit equally! There are so many things in life we can't change, but we have the power to change our food, air and water...the basic elements of abundant life!
Pets LOVE our infrared pads! Pure breeds (with unique health issues), elderly or injured animals will be so grateful if you put an infrared pad in their bed for treatments!
