Anyway, it is important that we welcome the newcomers and help them get a basic idea of "what we do." The basic intent of the newsgroup is to study, research, and report on the work of Carey Reams. Reams taught over and over and over that all disease is mineral deficiency and not a shortage of drugs. Reams was astute enough to know that medical doctors are trained to push drugs of all sorts, so he tried to avoid getting in the path of that juggernaut. Instead he advised people to eat a very wide variety of foods, drink enough water to wash out waste products, and take mineral supplements to close the gaps in their nutrition. He adapted simple chemical analysis developed for testing soils and instructed people how they could rebuild the "soil of their life," not just physically, but mentally and spiritually as well.
Here are a few resources that have proven useful in the past.
1. Thomas Giannou's transcription of a class that Reams taught using Dr. John Black as an assistant
2. The Brixman.com website devoted to all aspects of Reams' work
3. And, of course, everyone should read Reams' book "Choose Life Or Death" (CLOD). The most inexpensive place I have found to get a copy is from Pike Agri. The horribly overpriced versions that show on Ebay are an aberration.
4. Finally, the archives of the forum are a gold mine of information. Often you will find hundreds of prior posts concerning something that seems entirely new to you.
