Toe To Head Pain
Sometimes heel pain is due to heel spurs, sometimes it is not.
Heel spurs are due to deposits. The usual heel deposits are uric
acid and various phosphates. Uric acid deposits become a
breeding ground for bacteria. The phosphates give the deposits a
rigid structure that is hard to dissolve. You may have to choose a
pain killer, get specially built “orthopedic” shoes, or stop your
daily walks to get relief from the piercing pains. These will not
cure the problem but may “buy you some time” while you make
basic changes in your lifestyle.
Stop drinking tea and cocoa because they contain oxalic acid.
Stop drinking coffee, decafs, fruit juice and soda pop because
they are contaminated with solvents. All of these must be
detoxified by your body and eliminated by your kidneys. We
should spare the kidneys these extra tasks when we wish them to
clean up heel spur deposits. You must first dissolve the deposits,
then help the kidneys eliminate them.
To dissolve them, you alkalinize your body's pH, watching
over it carefully with pH paper or Nitrazine paper. To help kidneys
eliminate them, use the Kidney Cleanse and drink lots of
water. Only water, not a beverage, helps the kidneys to eliminate.
Drink a pint of water upon rising in the morning, and a pint of
water between meals.
Do not buy “special” water. Use your cold tap water only. If
you don't like the taste of your own tap water, get it from some
body else's tap. Use only glass or reused polyethylene jugs.
Polyethylene is opaque, not clear. It has already lost its plasticizer
into the water that stood in it earlier. (Somebody drank it!)
Purchased water has traces of solvents from machinery and
sterilizing equipment used in its bottling. Your own tap water is
not pure (indeed it may have 500 toxic elements), but it never
contains solvents in amounts I can detect.
Traces of solvents are worse than traces of other toxins.
Water filters are not the solution. They trap the pollutants
and then allow a tiny amount to enter the water on a daily basis.
Chronic toxin consumption is much worse for your health than
periodic surges of toxins. You can use a small filter, that gets
changed every month without much risk. This would dechlorinate
the water, at least, and improve the flavor. The pitcher variety (it
should be made of hard, inflexible plastic) and the faucet variety
are listed in Sources.
Bottled water is popular,
and tasty, and has appealing advertising, but it is just not safe.
Why is it easier for everyone to spend dollars per day, for the
rest of their life, buying water instead of insisting that their water
pipes are metal-free?
Another reason not to drink water from bottles, however
convenient, is that it is stagnant and is soon contaminated with
our own bacteria from contact with mouth or hands. Staphylococcus
(Staph) and E. coli are commonly seen. The solution is
not to add still more chemical disinfectants, the solution is to
drink from a flowing source, such as our faucets. If you must
carry water, use glass containers; plastic is porous and much
more difficult to wash clean (sterilizing in a dishwasher is effective,
By drinking a total of four pints of water in a day, the kidneys
will notice the assistance. (Any single herb tea without added
salt or sweetener counts as water.) The urine will stop having
any odor and will become very light colored. This is especially
important while you are dissolving the heel deposits since your
body is now carrying these in the circulation.
Killing bacteria with a zapper may give you instant pain relief
and is, of course, beneficial to your body. But you can't expect
the pain to stay away until the deposits are gone and the
source of bacteria is also removed. Go after the usual sources:
teeth and stones. Another source is dairy food contaminated with
Salmonella and Shigella bacteria. Sterilize all of it by boiling.
Even the amount put on cereal in the morning or used in
scrambled eggs is enough to reinfect you! Butter and heavy
whipping cream also need boiling. Stop eating yogurt and cheese
which can't be boiled.
Phosphate deposits are a mixture of three phosphates:
monocalcium phosphate (CaH2 PO4), dicalcium phosphate
(Ca2H PO4) and tricalcium phosphate (Ca3 PO4). They are
formed by eating too much (way too much) phosphate relative to
Our high phosphate foods are meats, carbonated beverages
and grain products like rice, cereals, breads, pastas and nuts.
The body's normal elimination tactic for phosphate is to
combine it with calcium and magnesium in order to neutralize it
first. Unneutralized phosphate is very acidic and would burn the
delicate kidneys. But where shall the calcium and magnesium be
taken from? Magnesium is often in very short supply since it
comes from green vegetables in the diet and is not stored up in
any special organ. So it falls on calcium to be used for this purpose
since it is stored up (in your bones and teeth).
The acid condition created by phosphates dissolves your
bones and allows large amounts of bone structure to be washed
out with the urine: this can be directly seen with an analysis of
urine (you can ask your doctor to order this at a lab). If you catch
all the urine in a 24 hour period you can measure all the calcium
you have wasted. You should not lose more than 150 mg calcium
in a day because this is all you can absorb in a day!4 If you do
lose more than 150 mg in a day, you are dissolving your bones at
a fast clip. This also means there is too much calcium in your
blood and lymph, from dissolving so much bone so quickly.
Once you have dissolved your bones it is not so easy to put
the calcium back into them. Your body will try to put it back as
soon as possible—as soon as your acid condition is gone. But
your bones can't do this without vitamin D. Vitamin D may
“come from” sunshine and from vitamin D in milk but it isn't that
simple. Vitamin D must be activated by your kidneys before it
can go to work! Remember, though, it was the kidneys that had a
problem in the first place, allowing deposits to form! With old
kidneys, clogged with crystals, hampered by heavy metal and
mold toxins, and beleaguered by bacteria and parasites, is it any
wonder that sunshine and vitamin D fortified milk don't supply
large amounts of activated vitamin D? It takes large amounts to
put back into your bones the large amount of calcium that
dissolved out during the acid state you put yourself in by over
consuming phosphate food.
If you can't put the calcium back into your bones promptly
where is it to go? It may attach itself to tissues that were never
meant to be used this way. Your arteries fill with “scale,” your
4You absorb 5 to 10% of what you eat. If you eat 1 gram (1000
mg) you absorb 50 to 100 mg. But you absorb 25-40% if it comes from
kidneys form calcium phosphate crystals, heels form spurs, joints
become knobby with deposits.
Young persons and children, with healthy unclogged kidneys,
make–that is, activate–ample vitamin D, so even if they consume
too much phosphate and develop an acid condition that dissolves
their teeth and bones, they can put the dissolved calcium back
in its proper place. They don't develop hardened arteries, heel
spurs, and knobby joints, at least not at first. Their bodies can
take a considerable amount of abuse without showing it.
In general, people eat way too much phosphate. Meat eaters
eat too much meat. Vegetarians eat too much grain. Most everyone
drinks phosphated beverages. In this way we set the stage
for hardened arteries, joint disease, calcified tissues that no
longer have flexibility. We all get kidney crystals that become
stones. This is aging. All these deposits invite bacteria to live in
them and on them, creating pain.
Old age and pain go together as if they were true partners.
Yet it is just the result of bad food choices.
Try to undo as much of this false aging as possible.
1. Reduce your meat consumption. Switch to fish which
supplies calcium in the tiny bones. It is true, these bones
are made of calcium phosphate and one might expect,
logically, to be getting a less effective calcium source.
Logic isn't necessarily biologically correct. The bones of
fish work nicely as a calcium source and their phosphate
content is not too great. Such a diet has worked for many
primitive societies. Further, I have never seen a case of
mercury toxicity from eating fish; amalgam tooth fillings are
our truly significant source.
2. Reduce your grain consumption. Instead of cereal for
breakfast, add fruit and reduce the cereal to half. Cut bread
consumption in half. Cut pasta consumption in half. Cut rice
and corn consumption in half. Eat more bananas and other
fruits. Eat more vegetables; always choose potato (not
potato chips) instead of rice or macaroni. Always choose a
leafy salad instead of pasta salad. At any restaurant or
salad bar ask yourself: is this wheat, rice or corn? If so,
choose potatoes or other vegetables. Choose coleslaw.
Choose mixed fruit. You don't need to go off the grains,
only reduce them to improve your condition.
3. Take vitamin D as a supplement. Nothing less than 40,000
units has any real impact by the time there are problems.
This strength is available by prescription only (usually
50,000 units, which is close enough). To avoid getting a
polluted product, ask your pharmacist to follow the recipe
on page 560. (In the past some cases of poisoning by
overdosing resulted in this regulation. If you overdose you
will get joint and muscle pain and nausea but it is reversible.)
Take one a day (not more), for the first three weeks,
then two a week forever after.
4. Finally, toss the carbonated beverages right out of your diet
or make your own (see Recipes). It is not the carbonation
that is harmful, it is the added phosphate. Drink water, herb
teas, homemade fruit and vegetable juices, milk or
Milk, like fish, is full of calcium in the form of calcium
phosphate. Again, logic might speak against the effectiveness of
this form of calcium. Again, logic is wrong. Evidently, the calcium
and phosphate story must be much more complex than I am
Milk works best as a calcium source, in spite of its phosphate
content. Possibly the lactose and other complexities of its
composition contribute to this. My recommendation when deposits
have formed anywhere in the body, such as heel, toe, arteries,
joints, is to switch to milk as a beverage. Compare the
calcium level of your urine before and after the switch (allowing
several weeks first). Also compare calcium levels in your blood
serum. It should move towards normal. This means up if it is too
low (below 9.2). It means down if it is too high (10). If you are
monitoring the effectiveness of the kidney herb recipe in
dissolving away your phosphate crystals, notice that drinking
milk keeps them from reforming. Taking calcium tablets does not!
Taking nothing lets them reform the quickest.
The milk must be 2% or higher in butter fat to be effective.
With your body fluids at their proper acid level, with your
kidneys able to flush out acids, with heavy metal toxins no longer
settling in, with your bone-dissolving stopped, your heel deposits
can shrink. Bacteria have no place to feed and breed. You can
kill them several times more with your zapper to catch stragglers.
And your heel pain becomes history. Be careful not to bruise the
sensitive tissue with too much walking or running immediately
after the pain is gone. Wear cushioning socks and well cushioned

Walter Jones, a man of 67, was diabetic for 14 years. His feet and
upper legs hurt so much for the past 13 years he could barely
shuffle along now. They were also cold and clammy. The herb,
juniper berry was added to the Kidney Cleanse recipe to make it
even more effective for him and he was advised to stop smoking,
using alcohol, and caffeine. He also started the parasite killing
program (at that time an herbal parasite program was being used
instead of a zapper) and a liver cleanse that yielded several hundred
small gallstones. Three months from his first visit his legs
were better and feet OK, although he still had some trouble walking
due to pain in upper thighs.
Dinah Sagun, a minister's wife, had a lot of walking and standing to do
besides traveling a lot. She had knee surgery 15 years ago to remove
deposits but now they were getting bad again. Also her heels
were sore. My tests showed she had phosphate and oxalate
deposits in her kidneys. She was started on the Kidney Cleanse
followed by the parasite program. She stopped using benzene
polluted items, especially her Chap StickTM. Her diet was changed
to include milk and leave out store-bought beverages. In 4½
months her heel pain was gone along with the bad headaches we
had not even started to work on.
Julie Fernandez came with a list of 10 serious problems including foot
pain and ankle swelling. Her urinalysis showed crystals. My test
showed they were uric acid crystals. Her parasites included Trichinella.
There was a house cat. Her toxic metal test showed tellurium
and platinum accumulation from metal dentalware and
arsenic from pesticide. She was to start on a Kidney Cleanse and
add the parasite program two weeks later. She was to remove all
roach hives and other pest killers from her house and arrange for
dental metal replacement. At her third visit, four weeks later, she
could walk without pain although she still had Trichinella and arsenic
problems. Two months later she was aching all over again
and her kidneys hurt. She still had Trichinella and some dental
work to do. She was to do a 5-day high dose parasite treatment
and treat the cat also and repeat the kidney cleanse. This relieved
Dorothy Shelley had numerous pains including foot pain in the arch,
lower back pain and cramps with her period. She had oxalate and
uric acid crystals in the kidneys so was started on kidney herbs.
Three weeks later her foot pain and low back pain were gone.
Paul Longtin had toe cramps, calf cramps, and heel pain. After cutting
down on smoking, quitting caffeine and soda pop and taking niacin
(250 mg time release; 1 capsule each meal and upon rising in
morning) and doing a kidney cleanse, all in three weeks, he was
much improved and didn't even need his arch supports.
Juan Onley, age 58, came for his gout in both feet and one hand. He
could hardly walk, in spite of soft shoes and pain killer. It started 7
years ago. He also had prostate pain and couldn't sit comfortably.
My tests showed his kidneys were full of uric acid, oxalate and
cystine stones. His prostate was full of Gardnerella and Campylobacter
bacteria. His wisdom teeth were harboring plantar wart #4
virus and Coxsackie B4 virus. Gardnerella often comes with fluke
parasites and indeed he had intestinal flukes in his kidney! He began
with the kidney herb program, then the parasite killing program.
It took five months to clear them all. Then he could walk and
sit without pain.
