A DESPERATE MESSAGE PLACED IN A BOTTLE
Good day, when I desperately sent this email, I gave it a last glance just as one does when throwing a bottle into the sea in desperate search of help, thinking that no-one would receive it. It was the 20th of April, but this didn’t happen. The bottle didn’t get lost. I immediately started to change my diet, without doing any fast though. In a few weeks I was already feeling the benefits.
AFTER A 2 YEAR NIGHTMARE, I AM SEEING THE LIGHT AGAIN
I can actually feel it physically (it’s not a mental illusion) and the more I move towards the vegetable world, the more my muscles, tendons, cartilages and everything that blocked my upper limbs, are relaxing. I’m able to sleep at night and don’t feel pain like before, even though I’m working quite hard in the garden. Thank you Valdo, even though I’m sure this is not the end. Thank you infinitely. I had an incurable crippling disease: it was a sad two and a half years, best forgotten.
But I’m still afraid. What else can I do?
MY 11 YEAR OLD NIECE HAS PAINFUL PERIODS AND EPILEPTIC CRISES
Another problem that weighs on my heart, is my 11 year old niece, my sister’s daughter. Nine months ago she started her periods and 4 months later she had the first strong epileptic crisis, followed by a series of milder recurrences. Then monthly more crises, though not as strong as before. The girl also suffers a lot from migraines. We have taken her to two specialized centres in North Italy. The doctors say it’s all part of growing up, and that most probably just as it came, it will all disappear in time.
WILL MY SAME VEGAN RAW FOOD DIET ALSO BE GOOD FOR HER?
My sister is very afraid. And to complicate matters the little one also suffers from allergies which started last year in spring. The doctors gave her Ventolin. I was very sorry. The girl is very sensitive and I believe the whole family is finding the situation very distressing. I would like to suggest the same kind of diet which is helping me so much. But is it possible? What can one do in these cases before turning to invasive medicine? Thank you for giving me even more of your time. Iole
FEARLESSLY CONTINUE ON THE ROAD YOU HAVE TAKEN
Dear Iole, I can’t advise you to do anything except going on without fear and hesitation, on the road you have taken. Already the results you are obtaining are an important signal. Maybe you doubt it but this is a completely different ball game. You have been tormented for more than 2 years, convinced that there was no precise way out. I can imagine the doctors’ comments. People arrive with pains here and there, and they simply don’t know what to do, so they just prescribe routine medicines, preferably cortisone, liquidating everything with generic diagnoses like “auto-immune disease” or “iatrogenic disease”, caused previous doctors and previous drugs.
WHAT IS LACKING IS HEALTH CULTURE
We need a health culture which replaces the disease culture which dominates on all levels today.
Health culture is one that underlines the body’s power to heal itself. Health culture is one which urges you to appreciate and love yourself, and not to be afraid of the complex and delicate machine which you carry around.
Health culture is one which teaches you to understand and to positively interpret disease, rather than fighting it as if it was an arch-enemy that invaded your house, that arrived from far away, that arrived thanks to a bacteria, a virus, a curse, an evil eye, a nuclear cloud, a chemical trail, or the latest pandemic doing the rounds.
THE RESPONSIBILITY IS ENTIRELY OURS, LET’S NOT SEARCH FOR ALIBIS AND EXTERNAL MONSTERS
Thus the key word is assuming complete personal responsibility. Admitting to ourselves that we have completely misused our body until it was impregnated with toxins. Obviously the poisons from birth and childhood are to be attributed to parents and paediatricians, but those that were assumed later can’t be blamed on anyone else except ourselves.
Even though we live in a malicious society that does its best to make us all sick, we have to know how to look after ourselves. All person who drive a car are obliged to know the rules of the road and of the traffic, and even to know some basics about their vehicle, how the engine functions, which fuel to put in, and what maintenance needs to be done.
AN ENGINE FED WITH ITS SPECIFIC FUEL NEVER BREAKS DOWN, NEVER GETS INTO SERIOUS DIFFICULTY
The culture of natural hygiene teaches us to observe our bodies dispassionately, looking at it from a scientific and functional point of view, without prejudice and without obsessions.
Thousands of important independent scientists of yesterday and today have established certain things which are fundamental and beyond any shadow of a doubt.
And these are that man is a being conceived, designed and structured (bio-chemically, mentally, spiritually and aesthetically) to eat a fruitarian, vital raw food diet, due to which simply by respecting these characteristics, our psycho-physical apparatus functions at its best, in perfect equilibrium, without collateral effects called diseases.
OUR HOMEOSTASIS TRAVELS ALONG A CORRIDOR OF TOLERANCE
The culture of natural hygiene teaches that the physiological and mental equilibrium we call health, travels along and around an imaginary straight line with sinusoidal or wave-like fluctuations which move continuously between high and low, but always within a corridor of tolerance, bounded by precise individual limits of tolerance, beyond which we are not permitted to go.
When one goes beyond the limits of tolerance to poisons, to carelessness, to villainy, to disobedience, to disharmony and unfortunately also to accidents along the way, the body becomes ill and enters into pathological states.
THERE’S AN ABYSS BETWEEN NATURAL HYGIENE AND INVASIVE MEDICAL PRACTICE
The culture of natural hygiene teaches that the majority of painful signals and both palpable and apparent manifestations, physical annoyances, mucous, local inflammations, external fever and un-noticed internal fever, putting on weight, loss of equilibrium, disturbances in the endocrine system (thyroid), metabolic disturbances (hepatic, nephritic, colitic), mental disorders, and even heart disease, kidney stones, cysts and tumours, are all symptoms, red warning lights, and NOT the real disease that we have to fight; not the real cause of illnesses themselves.
Here is the big difference between hygienism and interventionist, invasive, symptomatic, allopathic and homeopathic medicine. This explains the abyssal difference between hygienism and all the other alternative therapies, even those that call themselves natural, without however obeying the laws of this nature itself.
NO SCALPELS AND NO DRUGS, EXCEPT IN RARE EMERGENCIES
Natural hygiene speaks of the cure of the non-cure, and the cure of non-interference. Zero scalpels and zero drugs, except in rare emergencies. Obviously an accident victim must be attended to immediately. Sometimes someone who is about to die can be saved with minimal of banal cures, or substances that impede a cardiac arrest, and this should be done, of course. Dental surgery (without strange mercury-laced amalgams, let us be very clear) is to be performed because teeth are needed both aesthetically and for chewing well.
THE HYGIENISTIC CURE OF THE NON-CURE
The cure of the non-cure means putting the body in the best position to cure itself, by reinforcing the dormant, or almost decapitated, powers of the guardian angel, the internal doctor, the immune system which is found in all of us, in the form of diverse internal connections which terminate in 200 central lines of lymph nodes localized above all in the digestive apparatus.
WHEN ONE SOWS WELL, THE HARVEST ARRIVES
The cure of the non-cure means regularizing respiratory, skin perspiration, and circulatory processes. It means restoring the functionality of the digestion, of the renal-pancreatic-hepatic group, and of the entire metabolic-cellular apparatus. When one does all this, one doesn’t need any of the fear that manifests itself.
We should not live in a continuous state of agitated tension, seeing that stress ruins everything and also aggravates the eventual pathological situations.
EXTREME ATTENTION TO WHAT GOES INTO OUR MOUTH
Having said all this, which is valid for you and for everyone, let’s pass on to your 11 year old niece with precocious menstruation accompanied by typical epileptic manifestations. Precocious menstruation makes me think of precise family food choices. I remember some years ago there was a wave of panic amongst Chinese parents in Hongkong. They all found themselves with precociously developed 7-10 year-old girls with breasts like adults. Enquiries came to precise conclusions. For months they examined all the growth and precocious aging practices used against infantilism. The famous crazy races to make their children grow more and more quickly. We’re talking about vaccinations, artificial bottle feeding, about horrible homogenized baby foods, about eggs and chickens raised with hormones, about meat with estrogens and foods with added vitamins and supplements. We’re talking about children impregnated with toxins.
INTENSE PATHOLOGICAL MANIFESTATIONS
It’s clear that in those conditions painful, dramatic menstruations finds all justifications possible. In that case the disease is not represented by spring allergies, strong migraines and epileptic crises, but ever and only by an excess of toxins in the system, by blood which is lipo-toxic before its time. Menstruation is a precious, cyclic, natural purification process. The higher the pollution of the blood, the more painful, abundant and demanding it will be. Accompany such a situation with a healthy and reactive immune system (typical of a person who is growing fast) and it is logical to find oneself facing a very intense pathological manifestation.
THE REAL NAME OF THE DISEASE IS NOT MENS AND NOT EPILEPSY
So, where is the source of the evil? What is the real name of the disease? Not menstruation, not migraine, not epilepsy, but an explosive intoxication in search of dramatic ways of expulsion. In order to recover from any intoxication, we need to detoxify urgently. Thus the importance of the choices we make, the importance of the shopping trolleys we take to our cars parked at the supermarket, the importance of the content and the smell of our refrigerators.
IN THIS CASE THE DOCTORS WERE PERFECT
In this case, the doctors at the two hospital centres you quoted were up to the situation and saw things correctly. This doesn’t mean just doing nothing however. There are collaborating methods which are able to ward off every aggravation and in any case to temper the intensity of the phenomena. And there are life-styles which take us directly to the maximum of all possible health.
THREE PRECISE THINGS TO BE DONE
The first thing to do is to remove the congestion in an intestine which is definitely overheated, and this is obtained by a very light digestive process which does not unleash leukocytes or create intestinal dysbiosis (or putrefaction from animal originated food) and also by some innocent beneficial external measures such as a nightly cataplasm of mud on the abdomen during acute phases. Secondly we need to reactivate the epidermis’s power to perspire. Exposure to the sun and adequate aerobic physical exercise. The third thing is a decisive change of mentality and family food culture, with the subversion (undermining the power and authority of an established system or institution) of certain inveterate habits which have never been subjected to serious examination.
Get all animal proteins out of the fridge, out of the pantry and out of the cupboard. Fresh fruit and fruit with shells, horticultural fruit (vegetables) and greens in abundance; and drawers full of whole grain cereals and seeds, potatoes, turnips and other tubers always ready and at hand.
AIM AT HUMAN-COMPATIBLE FOOD, RATHER THAN AT THE CARRION OF POOR SLAUGHTERED ANIMALS
I attach to the present text a selection of articles from my blog, hoping that the bottle which was thrown into the waves, will even once more become the harbinger of health and harmony. No more Ventolin or other drugs. Aim exclusively at healthy food and not robbing food, at vital food and not dead food, at human-compatible food and not food for hyenas and crows.
You also need true serenity and confidence. Because let’s be very clear, fear is the worst disease of all.
