After years and years of immersion in Reams-think it is hard for me to see the world through medico eyes. Below is a story about a kidney failure. God alone knows exactly how much money will be spent on this one case. I'll bet a donut and a cup of coffee that Reams simply would have made the man drink his water---no drama whatsoever. Does that "protein build up" sound like huge numbers of delta and omega cells stacked up and waiting to get out? Are we talking extreme congestion? Should we add some lemon at the right time and some goldenseal to be sure everything gets out? Of course we have to run the risk of the medical-lobby screaming that we are "practicing medicine without *our* license" as they try to throw us in jail. Pointing to a happy guy with both kidneys intact means little to them.
Below is a horrifying story from Mike Adams as reported on his Natural News site. It is a report about the hugely profitable organ transplant business and how it corrupts doctors along with hospitals.
The story concludes with a call to protect our organs so as to keep us off operating room tables as either donor or recipient.
So why is such a story appropriate for a RBTI blog? I think it serves well as a background to once again emphasize that Carey Reams taught us how to rebuild our damaged or sickly organs. This is a concept that surgeons should understand, but they have no financial incentive to do so. Actually, when you stop and think about how a few dollars of minerals can casually take the place of a quarter million dollars of high tech "modern" medicine you can understand the reluctance to fix things the natural way. And besides---where is the glamour?
I can only imagine the thunderclap in the lecture room the first time Reams informed his audience that a heart attack victim could easily rebuild the damaged organ with something as simple as asparagus. The RBTI is like that: it leaves the listener gasping. Or how about Reams explaining how the diseased liver can be made whole with supplemental calcium, water, iron, and iodine. What "paid by the organ" surgeon can sign up for such teaching?
A few have signed up. No, there will be no news articles about their heroic deeds. Those few doctors who quietly climb aboard the USS RBTI will save many organs and very few outsiders will ever know. That is the biological way. Read the below article and then decide whether you prefer to keep it simple or lay on that brightly lighted table.
So the real question I see in the forum posts is whether genetic mutations are a form of disease anyone has seen "melt away".
"Genetic" is a term used by people who can't come up with a reason for whatever or whichever disorder. As best I understand it, Reams didn't think there was any such thing (*). Yes, he saw many doctor-described "genetic" diseases, but he noticed they were in families who ate at the same table. And, yes, he saw those same "genetic" diseases melt away when each family member ate/supplemented so as to get their numbers in line with the perfect equation. On the other hand, I think Joe...
My doctor finally came up with the ideal to test me for MTHFR a few months ago, and sure enough had a positive result.
I'm still not sure if this "MTHFR" is a joke because it looks like texting shorthand for a word not appropriate in this forum. :)
The basic rules are that if you are working with a regular medical doctor and they have diagnosed you with something or the other, you can't come here and ask for a plan of treatment. Almost all US state laws are written such that any direct advice here could be considered "unlicensed practice of medicine."
Carey Reams was gifted the knowledge that ALL disease is a mineral deficiency and that is all we really discuss here. Yes, we are forced to often use the medical terms so that one person knows what another is talking about, but there is no diagnosis and no treatment for symptoms as such allowed on this forum.
We heal nothing and we cure nothing. What we do is analyze the urine and saliva for 7 important factors. We then work with basic calciums (which happens to be the most abundant mineral in the body by weight and by volume). By doing so, the other needed minerals usually ride in along with it. Sometimes there are special minerals such as easily assimilable iron added. But mostly it is calcium---primarily in food, but frequently with supplementation.
We are not responsible for all the ills that magically melt away when the urine/saliva values are kept within the perfect health parameters. It is not our fault. It is simply something you have to get used to. OK, so the doc said you had lumbago (or whatever) and it went away once you held your numbers right for a while. Yes, we understand you didn't actually tell him about this number stuff because you knew he would think you were talking gibberish. Please don't blame us or credit us. "Bye, bye, lumbago" is just your body doing what it automatically does when you are drinking the right amount of water and the minerals are present to allow for the replacement of ageing cells.
I'm sure your licensed doctor has suggestions for treating this "MTHFR" (or any of the other diseases listed in the PDR). We don't, we won't, and we can't treat things that way because we are not licensed to do so. We have no magic pills and we wouldn't tell you if we did. We can only offer the urine/saliva analysis and help you gently nudge your numbers to be more in line with the perfect health numbers. You (and your body) are on your own after that. If your licensed doctor says your disease (by whatever name he calls it) has "regressed," that is between you and him/her. Sure, you can later tell us about it, but please don't say that we "did it." We do nothing, we heal nothing, we cure nothing because we can't legally do so.
In 1936, Rex Beach who lived in Sebring Florida at the time, wrote a short article about the work of Dr. Charles Northen. Northen (not Northern) had stopped his doctoring work and shifted to agriculture because he felt he could help many, many more if their diets were improved.
Beach's article, Modern Miracle Men, was published in
Few members of the RBTI Yahoo group are aware of how long I have prayed for a comprehensive compendium of all the RBTI materials out there. My own efforts to develop such a tool kept falling short. One day the thought came that perhaps there was someone in the community who could undertake (and finish) the job. And then young Joel Horst came into view.
Rex, you said.... "Min-Col is nothing more than the
calcium-rich purified remains of marine organisms"
Doesn't Reams say that Min-Col is the essence of bone meal?
He did say that. Being as "bone meal" is where they steam off the fat from slaughtered animal bones and then grind up what is left, I suspect he mis-spoke, unless to him "bone meal" meant the remains of ancient marine organisms.
At the bottom of each RBTI message from the Yahoo server is this note and link.
FUN RBTI QUIZ: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/11543729/RBTIquiz.exe
If you click it, a short quiz will download as an executable file. When you open the quiz, you will be shown 20 simple random RBTI questions (from a current database of about 200). After you finish, you will see your score and the CORRECT answers to each question. You can then take another test of another 20 random questions if you wish.
The questions are drawn from general RBTI literature and should be a big help to each of you in building your basic RBTI knowledge.
So how do the thoughts and ideas of a man finally make it into the Quackwatch spotlight? Obviously, this is a first step in being singled out by the American Medical Association as a target. Interestingly, Carey Reams, although mentioned, has never made the cut while one of his wayward students, Gary Martin, rates a full page. Wayward, you say? Yes, while Martin did attend at least one of Reams earlier classes, he has long since moved on to his own thing which has earned him a "bogus" rating from some of the more staunch RBTIers.
Actually, Reams tended to find himself in the sights of local medical societies instead of the national AMA. This usually came about when too many of their patients started preferring gentler, kinder treatments that zeroed in on bodily dysfunction via analysis, rather than diagnostic guessing. While Reams steadily denied he was a medical doctor ("neither am I posing as one"), he did have an ego and was not so inclined to turn away a loving "Doc" now and then from a grateful client. Guess what?---that can get you charged.
Trying to explain away the charge in a courtroom to a letter-of-the-law judge is a tough job. And only a foolish person would think that having one or more people testify of the incredible help you got from "Doc Reams" might mitigate "practicing medicine without a license". No, that merely proves the charging document is true. You can almost see the glee in the eye of an AMA representative sitting in the back of the courtroom as a prosecutor lets the defense make the prosecution case.
From my seat it appears that if you truly wish to help your fellow man through dietary reform, then the most safe path to avoid the wrath of the AMA is to openly practice Unlicensed Practice. This book has merit even if you are a licensed MD and you wish to use urine/saliva analysis in lieu of the long-dominant cut/burn/poison paradigm urged by such as the PDR.
Yes, there is a way to help your fellow man but you are not apt to avoid trouble if you think you can simply photocopy a form in a book and use it as a shield against laws originally intended to keep you from competing with an established money machine. Do your homework.
Most folks who venture into our little internet corner are ailing and also wary of the drugging scene. Only a few will understand right off the bat that all disease is some form of mineral deficiency. Actually, they have had it hammered into their heads that sickness is a DRUG deficiency. We are talking quite a leap and I'm never surprised when a couple of people quickly bail out because the chasm is just too vast.
More than likely, our new visitors have a lifetime of being taught that all food is the same and that what you or I eat doesn't have anything to do with one's health. Although some have abandoned the drug scene (legal or illegal) because of the harm they have witnessed and the dependency they wish to avoid, a few will only rise to the level where they start thinking that this or that "secret" fruit cures this or that disease and some "rare" juice is the remedy for arthritis---or whatever. In other words, they will climb out of the void---but only so far.
No one will force feed them anything here, but they do now stand a chance of learning, starting with the idea that worn out soil with scarce minerals produces food of nutritional nothingness and that there are several ways out of the wilderness. One, actually the best, is to grow or find food of superior nutrition---the foods that their ancestors took for granted. Trust those of us who have been here a while. That is one tough task.
An alternate path is what RBTI is all about. If you decide to walk our straight and narrow way, you will learn that you gain most of the benefit of superior high Brix foods by eating a very wide diet---a great variety---buffered with small amounts of special condiments and carefully selected mineral supplements.
Both ways out of the jungle require proper water drinking and digestive assistance from the common ordinary lemon.
When the simple RBTI urine and saliva analysis shows improvement, you will have your proof that the old dead or dying cells clogging your body are being steadily replaced with fresh new high energy cells. You should experience that "aha" moment, as so many before you have, when you realize that "disease"---whatever disease is---is going out with the yucky and useless.
It is a good moment. Of course, there are the few who go back to the comfort of a pill for every trouble. It's OK.
