These formulas are extremely valuable tools in an effort to achieve the most valuable possession in life, ultimate health. Taking the time to master the principles covered in this program will provide the most valuable knowledge in the world (how to become and remain ultimately healthy).

Note: Recognizing abnormal symptoms are the body's early warning signs of internal biochemical imbalance (not in a healthy state). Prompt corrective action is essential to avoid oncoming illness and serious health compromising, even life shortening and threatening disease.

To gain and maintain optimum health one must closely monitor internal biochemical state but the presence of any abnormal symptom which are the body's signs of oncoming illness and disease. When any ill health symptoms appear, quick prudent mediating action to quickly remove internal toxicity that are the foundational cause of ill health symptoms. Taking allopathic prescription drugs to mask symptoms is not the solution short of immediate life threatening health problems. All drugs are toxins and serves to add more toxicity to an already toxic internal biochemical environment.

    Failing Health Formulas & Recipes:

    Note: It's important to remember the success of any program or regimen is dependent on consistency, discipline and dedication. Prompt corrective action is essential to stop the progression of acid buildup, premature biological degeneration, illness and disease.

    To achieve success, you must develop the discipline, stay the course toward internal biochemical balance, optimal health and vitality. All blended and juiced recipes, should be consumed immediately. Remember, these powerful health restoring tools must be used in consort with a well planned strategy to create a consistent state of internal biochemical balance to produce maximum health benefits.

    Liver & Gallbladder Flush/Cleanse:
    Main Ingredients (makes 1 qt. or 1 liter);
    1. Distilled Water (steamed only) (24 oz. or ¾ qt./liter)
    2. Olive Oil (organic virgin cold-pressed only) (5-15 tbs., start with 5 and increase) (stimulates gallbladder & bile duct to contract powerfully and expelling solid particles kept in storage for years)
    3. Grapefruit (3-4 large pink tastes best), 4-6 Lemons/Lime, 4-6 Apple or Orange juice to start
    4. EPSOM Salts = Magnesium Sulphate (2-3 tbs.) (strong laxative, may cause diarrhea-like symptoms) (relaxing smooth intestinal tract muscles and bile ducts)
    5. Garlic Clove (5-15 cloves, start with 5 and increase)
    6. Ginger Root (about 3-4" long)
    7. Cayenne Pepper (powder or tincture, starts mild and increase to as hot as you can one stand)

    Additional benefits;
    1. L-Ornithine (non-protein amino acid, help sleep)
    2. Black Walnut (kills liver parasites)
    3. Milk Thistle (clean and rejuvenate the liver)
    4. Barberry Bark (correct liver function and promotes bile flow)
    5. Wild Yam Root (tones and nourishes the liver and helps balance hormone production)
    6. Cramp Bark (nerve sedative, treats high blood pressure and circulatory conditions
    7. Fennel Seed (open obstructions of the liver, gall bladder and spleen)
    8. Catnip Herb (nourishes the stomach and nerves)
    9. Peppermint Leaf (dissolve gallstones, muscle relaxant and reduces inflammation)

    1. Quart jar (glass) with rubber seal lid (Mason is excellent)
    2. Blender (2-3 HP electric is best)
    3. Juicer (electric is best)

    Should drink as least 8 oz. of formula each day to start and increase up to 32+ oz. (1 qt. or liter) each day for best results. Remember, the more green chlorophyll blending and consumption the better, so the sky is the limit.


    Colon/Bowel Cleanse:

    Note: Herbs have been used safely for centuries and work a little slower than enemas or colonics in detoxifying the body, however in time can achieve excellent results. Different herbs perform different actions, and therefore produce different results, so it's important to identify your goal when choosing your herbal colon cleansing strategy. Some colon cleansing herbs like senna and cascara sagrada work like a laxative or drug by forcing activity and may cause biochemical dependence, while herbs such as peppermint encourages digestion and peristalsis. I favor working with natural biochemistry rather than forcing activity. Also, working with nature to encourage natural biochemical balance has few if any negative side effects like drugs and hard action herbs like senna and cascara sagrada. If you choose to use senna and/or cascara sagrada, it is prudent to use it sparingly for a short period of time. Long term use can compromise health.

    Some perform a scrubbing action that eliminates fecal matter and prevents toxic build up, and others kill harmful bacteria and parasites. While others soften the stool, add bulk and improve the function of colon muscles that promotes healthy and regular bowel movements. Many pre-mixed combinations also include other herbs that help flush and enhance the functioning of the liver and or kidneys as well. Most include some sort of herb that promotes bile flow and stimulates the liver. Herbal colon cleansing products come in a variety of different forms which may include teas, tinctures, extracts, leaf, capsules or powders. Herbal colon cleansing products come in a variety of different forms which may include teas, tinctures, extracts, leaf, capsules or powders.

    Most Common Colon Cleansing Herbs;
    Strong laxatives; (forced activity)

  • Cascara Sagrada has been used for a long time by Native Americans and is one of the most popular colon cleansing herbs used today. It contains compounds called anthroquinones that work as an herbal laxative and helps to strengthen the muscle tone of the walls of the colon. Stronger muscle tone leads to elimination of constipation.
  • Senna is another strong herbal laxative with many beloved admirers. It too very works quickly; usually shortly after you've taken it. This herb is usually taken in tea form and also works as a purgative and stimulates peristaltic contractions, thus moving the fecal matter out of your colon and cleansing naturally.
    Caution! Some people report that Senna causes nausea. Adding a little ginger or cinnamon to a blend can help relieve this symptom.

    Stimulate digestion; (enhancing activity)
  • Alfalfa leaf - Nourishes the blood
  • Aloe Vera - Soothes and heals the intestinal lining
  • Buckthorn Bark - Increases digestion and is a herbal laxative
  • Chickweed - Another great herb for relieving constipation and cleaning out the colon is Chickweed. This is a relatively fast acting herb and will usually cause a bowel movement within several hours. It also flushes out toxins and helps strengthen the stomach muscles and the colon which helps build long term success in preventing constipation.
  • Fennel Seed - Enhances digestion, reduces gas, and relieves lower abdominal pain
  • Flax Seed - Nourishes and moistens cell membranes and reduces inflammation
  • Grapefruit Pectin - An antimicrobial and used for intestinal infections
  • Guar Gum - A water soluble bulk forming fiber and laxative that speeds the removal of wastes and toxins
  • Licorice Root - Detoxifies poisons from the blood and liver, reduces inflammation and pain, and heals the lungs and digestive tract
  • Marshmallow Root - Nourishes the lungs, coats and soothes the urinary tract
  • Papaya Fruit - An excellent source of digestive enzymes that dissolve compacted wastes materials
  • Peppermint Leaf - Soothes the intestines, throat, lungs, and stomach through a mild anesthetic action, which stimulates peristalsis
  • Psyllium Seed Husks - Is likely the most known and popular colon cleansing herb currently on the market, because of it's fiber and ability to strengthen the intestinal lining
  • Rhubarb Root - A laxative that drains inflammation from the liver, kidneys, and large intestine. Do not use if pregnant or if suffering from gout. It should not be used in large doses but is very safe in smaller doses when mixed with other colon cleansing herbs.
  • Slippery Elm - It is very effective for both constipation and diarrhea. It normalizes the stool while it soothes, coats and heals the lining the intestines. It is most effective taken with lots of water
  • Uva Ursi Leaf - A strong diuretic, anti-inflammatory, that reduces infections

    Colon/Bowel Cleansing Herbs that Kill Parasites;
  • Clove
  • Wormwood
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Pumpkin Seed
  • Black Walnut Hulls
  • False Unicorn Root

    Caution; Keep in mind that many herbs are very powerful agents that can produce negative side effects. They frequently negatively interact with prescription drugs as well so caution must to exercised. If you're taking any drugs, discuss these potential negative reactions with your health care practitioner or doctor before taking herbal formulas.

    Do not continue usage of a product if you develop excessive diarrhea, or abdominal pain. If you develop nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, joint pains, headache, rashes, irritation in the rectum area or just plain don't feel good, you may be cleansing too quickly. Discontinue usage, if this occurs until you feel better and then resume therapy at a more comfortable pace.

    "Illness and disease are optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen

    Important understanding
    It’s important to understand that optimal health can only be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).

    The following are the cornerstones of success with anything in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you will achieve excellence in anything you do. 

       Personal responsibility encourages excellence,
    requires personal excellence,
    advances positive action,
    strengthens personal power,
    promotes success ~ Dr. Skip Hellen 

    1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
    2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
    3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
    4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
    5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
    6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
    7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
    8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
    9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence

    Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity, denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death. DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, WHO WILL?

    The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely true when it comes to health.

    Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment) are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments. Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

    Perhaps the hardest part of achieving optimal health is changing unhealthy behavior habits to healthy habits.

    YOU provide the Courage, Dedication, Commitment and Action,
