It has been about seven years since MH, the Master Herbalist, first began discussing his principles of health on the CureZone forum. Many times, he has mentioned he would possibly phase out his Ask Barefoot Herbalist Forum. Therefore, I thought it would be essential to gather information here so that others could gain access to his archived posts. There is a lot of valuable health remedies there and he still responds to questions every day in the public forum.
He even creates his own herbs the Dr. Christopher way – the proper way it was originally intended without fillers and cheating the public. He also has invented many of his own herbal formulas that obey nature and seek to stimulate healing.
While juice fasting, your nervous system and digestion can take a break and have a chance to heal properly. When I did my 21 day juice-fast I slept only about 4 to 5 hours a night, lost a pound a day, and when I was working in the classroom there was no entropy coming from my students. That means none of their emotional reactions could affect me. Their energy of neediness and anger and so forth would literally go right through me.
When the body’s karma is taken care of through this Juice Fast it clears the way for deep introspective work such as meditation.
Even Dr. Paul C. Bragg, in one of his books, reported actually seeing evidence of himself expelling quicksilver (mercury) in his stool while fasting. That in itself is quite amazing. But, to become an experienced faster, the first thing you need to do is gather the right information. They say that “knowledge is power” and you have to work hard at unlearning all the false information that has been imposed on you from society. As the Master Herbalist succinctly puts it:
“Humans die from having 900x too much calcium rock in their body that makes them shrink and turn HARD. IF we die when we reach 900x too much calcium, then fasting properly extends your life, that SIMPLE.” — MH
This juice fast is taken from a very important pioneer in the medical field named Dr. William Howard Hay. In the early 1920s, the doctor himself became severely ill with a condition known as dropsy. He had no way to heal himself as it was considered an incurable condition. The only recourse he had, was by taking immediate action by fasting to cure himself completely on his own. After he regained his health, he quit his medical job and set up a seminary where he could really benefit others. This was a place where others could experience the same results by eating raw foods and juice-fasting.
The reason the Juice Fast is recommended over a water-fast is that your muscles won’t fatigue or atrophy like Gandhi’s body did; because you are eating 20 almonds a day for protein.
I recommend that you download Dr. Hay’s book here called: Health via Food. It will be a real eye-opener once you read it. He had a cure rate of a 100 percent as long as they followed his nutrition protocol. He assisted 60,000 people with various sicknesses ranging from mental illness and emotional problems as well as the deep physical cancers and tumors. Once I heard about this, I literally spent four months on the Barefoot Herbalist’s Forum reading about six or seven hours a night! I needed to find out the truth of these health principles in order to prepare myself properly for an extended fast.
The School of Self-Applied Prevention is the Master Herbalist’s new website. This is a great place to read, research and watch videos. If you are serious about health, then these steps are required for regaining optimal health:
- Read and research what MH suggests for getting back to health.
- Invest in buying yourself a good water distiller.
- Begin taking the LBB (lower bowel balance) herbs to exercise the colon and move impurities down and out.
- Prepare yourself for doing 3 good liver flushes following the Dr. Hulda Clark’s recipe.
- Deworm and remove candida/parasites for 30 days straight with MH’s dewormer.
After that, you are ready to do a juice-fast which can be for 3 or 7 days for the beginner. Most have gone on to do a 14 day juice-fast with no problems at all. The intermediate and advanced practitioners have accomplished 21 or 40 days worth of juice-fasting respectively. Natural orange juice itself will supply you with plenty of minerals when it is freshly squeezed. MH says these are some of the benefits of juice fasting:
“A 21 DAY PROPER ORANGE JUICE FAST GIVES YOU A NEW HEART
IN MY OPINION, A 40 DAY ONE GIVES YOU NEW ORGANS, INCLUDING YOUR SKIN, WHICH IS YOUR LARGEST ORGAN…PROVIDING YOU DO IT CORRECTLY….THE 21 DAY NEW HEART IS MEDICALLY RECORDED AS TEACHED IN THE SCHOOL FOLDER ON MY WEBSITE USING THE ORIGINAL MEDICAL WRITTEN BOOKS.” — MH
Some observations I made when drinking distilled water is that, surprisingly, you can drink more of it than you ever thought possible. You just can’t do that when drinking regular spring water. You’ll soon notice that your body was dehydrated for so long and wonder why you drank anything else. Some people are told that you should avoid distilled water because it leaches the beneficial minerals from your body but this is a big misconception. The truth is that it naturally chelates (removes) only the non-organic minerals stored in your cells.
To determine the benefits of distilled water can be known either through self-experimentation or scientifically. Either way, the cause of much confusion here is the result of using the wrong litmus test. The paper PH strips should NOT be used to determine the acid/alkaline state of the water. This way to determine the purity of water is always going to be inaccurate. The correct way to determine the PH of distilled water is by using the liquid PH test kit. If you use the paper litmus strips you will get the wrong reading every time.
The first herbal product that is absolute necessary is the Lower Bowel Balance (LBB) to repair your colon and MOVE the toxins down and out. The other is optional because it has garlic and is not for everybody. It is called the 2010 Longevity Spices. The great thing with the Longevity Spices is you will begin to notice an effortless willpower developing for curbing your ravenous appetite for wrong foods. You’ll get out of the bad habit of indulging in the bad foods you always wanted to give up but just couldn’t on your own.
The main herb that will assist your body in creating HEAT and CIRCULATION is called the Lower Bowel Balance (LBB). This formula is key for regaining health for a number of reasons. When you improve the digestive flow downward and out the toxins such as heavy metals and lactic acid (acidic buildup) can move out the elimination organs easily and successfully. Furthermore, the overflow of candida and parasites can flush out easily with the assistance of this unique herbal formula.
Without the LBB the dreaded Herxheimer reaction happens to most of us. This means the rapid die-off of the candida causes excessive irritability and then unusual hunger pangs. This would lead to binging on the foods that contributed to the over-growth of the fungus or yeast in the first place.
It is important to know that without the LBB you will have to take a daily enema each day you fast. Most would rather take the herb. Either way one must know the following protocol to ensure safety and results:
The Dr. Hay Rule while fasting is knowing that one bowel movement per day is absolutely NECESSARY or else it is dangerous as toxemia will set in.
So, get educated first before attempting a serious fast and try to avoid all water fasts – as they can be the most dangerous without real guidance, self-confidence and spiritual integrity. Always research it well, ask questions, and consult your physician if you are concerned about your current health.
