Natural Healthcare - Liberty Bell, Declaration of Independence

A Natural Healthcare Approach to Health Optimization and Immune System Support

1. Natural Healthcare and Health Optimization Defined

The use of naturally occurring, bio-active, bio-compatible substances, activities, therapies, energies and thought processes (including visualization and the mind's effects on health and healing, and the postive effects of prayer and faith), and other safe, effective interventions to promote optimal health and healing.

2. 100,000+ studies in support of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare as primary healthcare interventions for healthcare concerns, including immune system support

The following books highlight up to 16,800 research studies per book in support of the use of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare as primary interventions for healthcare concerns, or as additions to other healthcare interventions:

3. The anti-infective nutrient

There are currently 41 nutrients classified as essential nutrients by the U.S. government (the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine, of the National Academies): 14, vitamins, 15 minerals, 9 amino acids, 2 fatty acids, and water. Do you know which one was originally called the anti-infective nutrient? And, a better question: why has this information not been communicated to the public? Hints: it’s not a mineral, an amino acid, a fatty acid, or water. So, it’s a vitamin. And, it’s not vitamin C, or vitamin D. The answer is vitamin A: Highlighted research article: "Revealing the targets and mechanisms of vitamin A in the treatment of Covid-19": Dandelions greens (commonly growing in yards and parks) are a top source of vitamin A (actually, plant source precursors to vitamin A called carotenoids, including alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin and others):

4. Have you heard the news about zinc?

Zinc has over 2,000 currently known essential functions in human health. It is involved in virtually every aspect of immune system function, and it is a common deficiency, especially for seniors, One common cause of deficiency: seniors are often taking 5-10 or more pharmaceutical drugs, which commonly deplete 2-15 essential vitamins and minerals for health per drug (, and each essential nutrient has hundreds to thousands of currently known, essential functions in human health. The drug hydroxychloroquine helps cells uptake zinc more effectively, but it comes with side-effects, (although possibly not a major concern for short-term use, which is common for use for covid-19 treatment, together with zinc: A naturally occurring nutrient, quercetin (contained within many fruits, citrus, apples, berries, greens, other foods, and nutritional supplements in higher potency) has been shown to produce a similar effect, without the side-effects Some of quercetin's food sources and known health benefits: Common covid-19 symptoms are loss of taste and smell, which are textbook zinc deficiency symptoms. Related research:,

5. Vitamin C has been proven to be effective against every virus it has ever been tested against

Vitamin C has been proven to be effective against every virus it has ever been tested against (as long as it is given at an effective dose, which is the same for other healthcare interventions), including polio (60 out of 60 cases cured in the 1930s, and it was written up in Time Magazine, at the time; see the below list of links for related info), HIV and covid-19: a recent study showed 2/3 less deaths from covid-19 with the use of this one nutrient, See also: Nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare are, of course, much more broad and extensive therapies than the use on one nutrient for healing. In fact, each plant has over 10,000 nutritional components, and over 100,000 nutritional, healthful components of food have been identified! So, there is simply no nutritional supplement, no drug, no vaccine, no medical therapy, etc. that can replace or substitute for the positive health effects of a diet which contains a variety of unrefined foods in their natural (ideally organic) state. See and for the latest news and research in support of vitamin C against covid-19.

6. Vitamin D (and natural healthcare) -- bad news for covid-19

A growing list of studies have found that incidence, severity and death from covid-19 is inversely correlated with vitamin D levels:, Similar research is available for vitamin C, zinc, vitamin A, magnesium, selenium and other nutrients, which is essentially (or a large part of) the natural healthcare approach for healthcare concerns: focus on promoting health, and most conditions will go away on their own, or be prevented. One way to promote health is to regularly obtain high levels of nutrients known to promote health! Related info in the below video:

Video: The two most basic vitamins, part 2, Vitamin D, by Jonathan Wright, MD, ND (Hon): This video includes information on vitamin D studies showing the lowering all cause mortality (lower deaths from cancer, heart attacks, stokes, diabetes, "whatever the problem, you less likely to die of it, if you have more vitamin D," with the exception of deaths due to physical accidents and harm, such as car accidents or being run over by a truck, "even if that truck is loaded with vitamin D, you're still dead!";;; a vitamin D dependent method our bodies use to lower blood pressure; vitamin D's role in helping our bodies produce our own germ killers ("yes, our bodies can make what we would loosely call antibiotics, if we have enough vitamin D, and if we don't have enough vitamin D, our bodies can't make those -- this is for real; we can actually make our own germ fighting substances in our own bodies [cathelicidins] if we have enough vitamin D"; 80% less type 1 diabetes (for infants given 2,000 IU for 1 year after birth,; beneficial effects on hormonal balance for men and women; reduction of rates of breast cancer and fibroids; the slowing of genetic signals that lead to multiple sclerosis; and vitamin's D role in pain reduction, and even a reduction in falls in the elderly. "Vitamin D is required if we are going to live as long and as healthy as we can." The doctor states that studies suggest that 60-100 ng./ml. is the optimal level. See also:

Over 2,700 currently known functions of vitamin D have been discovered, 300 of which are directly related to immune system function. And, vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies.

A name you may be hearing a lot about soon: Robert Edgar Hope-Simpson (a physician born in 1908, who lived to be 95 years old) -- Is Susceptibility to Flu (and the above links strongly indicate possibly covid-19) a Seasonal Vitamin Deficiency Symptom?

Wiki quote, 3/10/21: "His career-long interest in the manner of transmission of the influenza virus was first stirred by the great epidemic of 1932–33, the year in which he entered general practice. It culminated in a book, published in 1992, which questioned the theory of person-to-person transmission being enough to explain the simultaneous appearance of influenza in places far apart. His initial hypothesis proposed that the cause of influenza epidemics during winter may be connected to a seasonal influence. His later research suggested that the correlation may be due in part to a lack of vitamin D during the wintertime, after documenting that influenza A epidemics in temperate latitudes peak in the month following the winter solstice. His findings were based not only on observation in his practice, but also on extensive historical research into past epidemics."

Recent researchers have come to the same conclusion: "Epidemic influenza and vitamin D: "We conclude that vitamin D, or lack of it, may be Hope-Simpson's "seasonal stimulus" (the seasonal-related factor, causing low levels of vitamin D, and an increase in flu cases).

  1. Before the discovery of vitamin C, it was commonly thought that scurvy was an infectious disease. It turned out to be a deficiency of vitamin C.
  2. Currently, on, there are over 80 clinical trials for vitamin D for prevention or treatment of covid-19:
  3. An excellent article signed by over 200 scientists and doctors, calling for increased vitamin D use to combat Covid-19, due to current research studies indicating a highly positive impact in prevention and treatment of covid-19:
  4. Related quote from Richard H. Carmona, MD, the 17th Surgeon General of the U.S.: "We are often enamored by high tech treatments but the history of medicine is replete [filled with, or abundantly provided] with examples of commonly overlooked basic nutritional physiology. I applaud the [above document's] signatories' efforts and dedication at raising international awareness about vitamin D. ... [T]heir encouragement to consider widespread vitamin D supplementation has little chance of harm but a tremendous potential for good."
  5. Our bodies produce the most active form of vitamin D and other health-promoting photoproducts from sunlight:
  6. Place mushrooms in sunlight to greatly increase vitamin D to high/very high levels (a top food source):,,
  7. For those who would like to know their body's level of vitamin D, "25-OH Vitamin D" tests are available from and other labs for about $70, and blood draws can be provided from places such as and sent to the lab, and the results will be sent to you by mail within 1-2 weeks' time.

7. NIH, 2012: "In healthy individuals...pathogens cause no disease."

Health promotion and optimization as methods of disease prevention and treatment:

The number of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens in, on and around us all of the time: "If all the 1 × 1031 viruses on earth were laid end to end, they would stretch for 100 million light years [a light-year is a unit of length used to express astronomical distances, and it is equivalent to about 5.88 trillion miles; 100 million light years x 5.88 trillion miles/light year = 588,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles. Put another way: 148,372,445,117,335,352 times the distance of the diameter (width) of the earth.] Furthermore, there are 100 million times as many bacteria in the oceans (13 × 1028) as there are stars in the known universe." Possibly the germophobes are missing a few (or a few trillion trillion)! Should we stop swimming in the oceans?

8. "All essential nutrients are essential for immune system function."

Article on the immune system supporting benefits and anti-covid-19 research on vitamin D, vitamin C, quercetin, NAC, zinc, selenium, B vitamins, and vitamin A.

Healthy cells for healthy immune system function:

9. Organic food (food in its natural state) or food + pesticides for health?

“With respect to nutrient content, organically grown fruits and vegetables - on average - appear to contain about 15% higher levels of nutrients than conventionally grown fruits and vegetables.” See the Environmental Working Group’s list of the foods highest in pesticides,, and the foods lowest in pesticides: See also:, and select any food on the right list, to see the many non-food, harmful ingredients added to non-organic food. For information on the adverse health effects of pesticides and other toxins, see The Toxin Solution -- How Hidden Poisons in the Air, Water, Food, and Products We Use Are Destroying Our Health -- And What We Can Do To Fit It, by Joe Pizzorno, ND, and Clinical Environmental Medicine -- Identification and Natural Treatment of Disease Caused by Common Pollutants, by Pizzorno and Walter Crinnion, ND (, item #'s 4.2 and 4.3). Studies by Dr. Crinnion on organic foods, nutrient levels, and adverse health effects of toxins:

Additional information on supporting the body's detoxification systems:

10. Raw foods vs. cooked foods

Various food cooking and processing methods leave little nutritional value left in foods. For example, approximately 30% of the vitamin C in foods is lost when food is frozen, and 50-80% or more is lost through common cooking methods. In general, about 40-50%, or more, of the vitamins and minerals which have been determined to be essential for human health, a strong immune system, and prevention (and treatment: see for thousands of supporting research studies and nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare research summaries for healthcare concerns) of many healthcare concerns are lost when food is cooked, including all of the enzymes contained in food (enzymes are more heat-sensitive than other nutrients; they are destroyed by cooking foods above 118°F, such as during most cooking methods and during pasteurization, canning and microwaving: Enzymes are catalysts for reactions in our bodies, and they help digestion, support the immune system in multiple ways (including by breaking down the protective coating on certain viruses), help prevent nutritional deficiencies, help normalize inflammation, and help promote detoxification and the elimination of waste products.

Make your own produce wash solution, from Eating Clean for Dummies, by Jonathan Wright, MD and Linda Larson (, #1.2): 1 C white vinegar, 1 C water, 1 TBS baking soda, 1 tsp of salt in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray on fruits and vegetables. Let stand 5-10 min. Rinse well and eat. "You can store this for about a week before you make another batch. You can also rinse your produce, sprinkle it with baking soda, and then gently scrub it using your fingers. Just be sure to rinse your produce well with water before you eat it."

11. Saying goodbye to processed foods, and hello to improved health and improved immune system function

Research indicates that the majority of the food consumed by Americans is in the form of highly processed foods (57.5% of calories, according to one large study; vs. a diet comprised of foods in their natural state, with 0% of calories from highly processed foods. These "foods" are missing large portions of the over 100,000 nutritional components (health promoting substances) known to be contained within different foods (10,000+ healthful, nutritional components per food).

12. Natural Healthcare and Biblical Healing Philosophy

13: 100,000+ studies in support of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare

100,000+ studies in support of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare as primary healthcare interventions for healthcare concerns, including immune system support: The following books highlight up to 16,800 research studies per book in support of the use of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare as primary interventions for healthcare concerns, or as additions to other healthcare interventions:

14. Welcome to the Field of Orthomolecular Medicine

Orthomolecular medicine means correct, or right molecule medicine -- the use of nutrients and substances normally present in the body in therapeutic amounts to promote optimal immune system function, optimal health, and healing (rather than the use of synthetic, man-made, patentable substances that do not occur in nature, such as pharmaceutical products). The term was originally coined by Linus Pauling, the vitamin C advocate, and two-time Nobel Prize winner. The website highlights information from physicians and researchers from around the world with expertise in the use of naturally occurring substances for health promotion. For current orthomolecular medicine news articles, scroll 1/2 way down this page:

"Dietary supplements, including vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, flavonoids, herbs, and accessory food factors, are among the most valuable and safe substances for prevention and treatment of serious chronic and acute diseases associated with mortality, as well as everyday health problems that cause discomfort and disability." Health effects of nutritional supplements on healthcare concerns, including virual healthcare concerns, brain function, heart health, blood pressure, vision, diabetes and longevity:

15. No deaths - none - zero (or, extremely close to zero) - from vitamins and minerals

16. Outstanding video: The proven roles of nutrients in healthcare

Video: Alan Gaby, MD, speaking on the proven roles of nutrients in healthcare, including for viral healthcare concerns such as coronavirus/covid-19. Dr. Gaby is the author of Nutritional Medicine,, which cites 16,800 research studies (out of the 100,000 studies that he and his associates have compiled) on nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare for over 400 healthcare concerns.

As Dr. Gaby says, when others say there's no evidence for the natural healthcare approach, "They will quickly change their mind, if the 8 lb. book is dropped on their foot!"

17. Outstanding video #2: 85 years of history and the proven roles of nutrients in healthcare

Video: Timeline and Results of Vitamin Therapy - 1935 to Present, by Andrew Saul, PhD. Research study referenced information on the essential roles of nutrients in health promotion, treatment and prevention of disease. Dr. Saul is the editor of the (orthomolecular medicine) website.

18. We live on a green planet. Eat something green every day!

Greens are more nutrient-dense than other food groups. In fact, if a large green salad with a variety of nutrient-dense greens is consumed daily as a (or the) major meal of the day, the average nutrient intake for the 41 essential vitamins and minerals listed above is often 3-6x the RDA/RDI of each essential nutrient -- real health promotion, and real immune system support! See also:

19. Sunlight, exercise, oxygen and fresh nature air

Sunlight, exercise, oxygen and fresh nature air are good reasons for taking a walk (even a very short one, around the block, or .25, .5, .75 mi. or more) or jog daily, at sunrise, or in the afternoon sun. Oxygen was used as a therapy for greatly reducing deaths during the 1918 flu, and it has been used as an anti-cancer therapy since the 1920s ( Catching a walk or jog daily helps increase oxygen levels in the body, helps digestion, increases the body’s production of the most active form of vitamin D (and other health promoting photoproducts produced in our bodies when exposed to sunlight), improves circulation, promotes the elimination of wastes, improves the mood, helps promote a healthy bodyweight, improves circulation, helps promote the elimination of wastes, improves the mood, helps promote a healthy bodyweight, and helps reduce anxiety -- all kinds of health benefits (,, And it’s free. Consuming a diet high in raw produce helps provide much higher levels of nutrients, such as potassium, vitamin C and B vitamins, which are involved in muscle function, energy production and helping provide needed nutrition for physical activity and health promotion.

An interesting case that is not being significantly covered in the news: Life Tabernacle Church, in Baton Rouge, LA, has continued to hold church services in person every week during 2020/2021, standing on the Bible verses instructing them to do so (Psalm 35:18; Hebrews 10:25; 2 Timothy 1:7; Acts 2:1; Exodus 20:3; Psalm 91 and others), and standing on the 1st Amendment as it is written. The church uses 33 school buses to pick up 600+ people for Sunday church services, feed everyone weekly, and hold mid-week church services and Bible study classes, for the church of 1,100+ members -- without masks and without social distancing (for the most part), and no one has died of the coronavirus/covid-19.

"Unfortunately, there are no medications and no surgeries that have ever or will ever cure lifestyle-induced diseases." Brenda Davis, RD

"The most pervasive and silently accepted crisis in America today is the ill health of our people. We must change our fundamental approach from a traditional disease-driven, treatment-oriented medical model, to one that deals with the real problem of improving people's health." Joe Pizzorno, ND

"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." World Health Organization Definition of Health

Orthomolecular medicine: "The preservation of good health and the treatment of disease by varying the concentrations in the human body of substances that are normally present in the body." Dr. Linus Pauling, on his concept of healthcare, which he termed orthomolecular medicine. Ortho is Greek for "correct" or "right"; orthomolecular medicine literally means the "correct molecule" or "right molecule" medicine.

"If we are going to stay as healthy for as we can for as long as we can, it's super simple: all we have to do is copy what nature does. What I'm saying is, if we have a certain machine, and it's broken, do we get parts for that machine? Or, do we get parts that don't fit the machine. Our bodies are made up of nature's molecules - proteins, carbohydrates and fats, and a whole lot of other natural stuff, but you know there isn't one molecule of a patent medicine, which is also called a drug. But, I prefer to call them what they are. Because you see, we cannot patent nature's molecules, by law. Therefore, if we're going to make megabucks, we have to patent something. So, what scientists are in the very bad habit of doing, and this has been going on for the last century, is taking a natural molecule, and changing it just a little bit so it isn't quite natural, and now we can patent [the molecule} , and we can afford to pay los federales at the FDA 1.2 billion dollars, which is what Forbes magazine says it costs to get approval from FDA." Jonathan Wright, MD,

"The truth of our medicine will always win out, the truth of what we are doing will always survive." Dr. John Bastyr, naturopathic doctor, and namesake of Bastyr University. Key principles of naturopathic medicine:
- First, do No Harm
- Identify and Treat the Causes
- The Healing Power of Nature (supporting the body's healing systems)

"Iaomai" - the Greek word used in the Bible to describe healing.
- "Healing, particularly as supernatural and bringing attention to the Lord Himself as the Great Physician."
- "Draws the attention to the Lord, the supernatural Healer, i.e. beyond the physical healing itself and its benefits."
- "To heal, make whole, to cure, to perform healing."

"The Liberty Bell got its name from being rung July 8, 1776, to call the citizens of Philadelphia together to hear the Declaration of Independence read out loud for the first time. Inscribed on the Liberty Bell is: 'Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.'" Leviticus 25:10,

Organic foods generally contain an estimated 5-20% higher levels of vitamins and minerals - nutrients essential for health, energy, vitality, and prevention and treatment of disease.

Organic food production standards also prohibit the use of genetically modified seeds:

Currently, over 20 billion/year is spent on government (taxpayer) subsidies for non-organic farming methods:

5.2 Nutrition-based Medicine

For true healing and health improvement (and reduction in healthcare costs), it's essential to address the cause(s) of illness, and not do harm. Harm being caused by our current healthcare system, which is primarily focused on the use of drugs, surgery, and related therapies and treatments:

Books citing thousands of studies from the major medical journals supporting the safety and the effectiveness of nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare:

  1. Textbook on Natural Medicine, by Murray and Pizzorno, with contributions from many other physicians and healthcare researchers: The top textbook on the field of naturopathic medicine, a field of medicine primarily based upon nutrition-based medicine and other natural healing therapies. Over 10,000 studies are referenced in this book.

This book contains extensive information on the science in support of a raw, plant-based diet (over 900+ studies referenced), information on the diet's positive effects on many major healthcare concerns (cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, weight loss, fibromyalgia and more), and detailed information on how to utilize a diet based upon raw plant foods (or increased consumption of raw plant foods) to improve health and promote healing, prevention and cures for many of the most common healthcare concerns. 40-50% of nutrients in food (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other healthful components of food), or more, are destroyed by cooking.
    1. World's Healthiest Foods: The Force for Change to Health Promoting Foods and New Nutrient-Rich Cooking. Contains detailed information on the top 100-125 most nutrient-dense, inexpensive, readily available foods (animal and plant-based foods, cooked foods and raw foods). Written by George Mateljan, founder of Health Valley Foods, and one of the founders of the organic foods/natural products industry, and his outstanding/world-class team of nutrition and healthcare researchers.

As co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, John Mackey has likely been exposed to as much, or more, information on diet and nutrition than anyone. The book makes the case for eating whole foods (not refined, processed foods; and ideally organic food), and more plant food (90% or more plant food), while highlighting research showing that healthcare conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, excess body weight, type 2 diabetes and cancer can all be improved, and, in many cases fully cured, with the use of this diet. Also provided: profiles on the longest-lived population groups in the world, and outstanding information on making dietary changes successfully -- quickly, and for the long term.
  5. Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide. The top reference book for information on the many different healing therapies available from the fields of alternative medicine, integrative medicine, nutrition-based medicine and natural healthcare. Provides information on healing cancer, vision improvement therapy (behavioral optometry), dental care (biological dentistry), and many other safe, effective natural healing therapies not found elsewhere within one book.

9.1 Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) attend 4-5 years of graduate school (the same amount of training as medical doctors) specializing in nutrition, natural healthcare, and drug-free interventions for improving health. They are licensed as primary care providers on the whole West Coast, and about 1/2 of the states. In Washington State, it's law that their cost-effective, preventative medicine services must be covered by insurance companies. Licensing of naturopathic doctors in all 50 states would help enable greatly improved access to natural healthcare, preventative medicine, cost-effective healthcare, and drug-free healthcare services.

Naturopathic doctors attend a similar level of educational training as medical doctors, but the medical training is focused on nutrition-based medicine and other methods of natural healthcare. Close to 1/2 of the States (and the whole West Coast) license naturopathic doctors on the same level as medical doctors (as primary care family physicians). Naturopathic physicians are trained in nutrition, natural healthcare, promoting natural childbirth, and many other natural healing therapies -- in addition to standard medical training in anatomy, physiology, biology, chemistry, etc.

Molly Neidermeyer, ND, was the Dean of Women’s and Children’s health at the top (or one of the top) naturopathic medicine school in the U.S., And, she received recognition for being one of the top 25 graduates from the school. She is likely available for phone consultations for any questions, including answering questions related to possibly working with a local naturopathic doctor during and after pregnancy, answering questions about vaccinations (pros/cons, ones to possibly consider, ones to possibly avoid), and other healthcare questions. Her website, and the web site of a few other naturopathic doctors (and one medical doctor) who are also experts in women’s and children’s health are listed below:

11. Declaration of Independence

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."
