I have discovered an amazing new way to free up my time so that I can devote more of it to posting blogs regularly and more often, researching new treatments, expanding the types of wellness topics I write about, responding to personal email questions, and writing that cancer book I’ve been talking about.

Best possible scenario is that the move works so well that I can hold limited trials for specific treatments like cancer, open my own wellness center, and maybe start marketing my own supplement products. All of which are long time goals. The possibilities are unlimited, and I’m so excited!

Until now I have concentrated on diseases and disorders, and the supplements needed to control them. But after this move I’ll also be talking about:

Exercise & Fitness • Anti-Aging Solutions • Pain Management • Food & Recipes • Pet Health • Diet & Nutrition • Beauty Tips • Increasing Longevity • Children’s Health • Relaxation & Anti Stress • Health In The News • Weight Management • Oral Health • Infertility • Best Spa Treatments • New Health Discoveries • Geriatric Medicine • And More….

Unfortunately, to make this move work I will have to shut down Lynn Capehart Wellness Project 2011-2018 to the public. In fact, if you are reading this, the site is probably already dark or will be very soon, except for the three essays, which can still be accessed. I will not write any new blogs on the word press site, but it will be accessible to those who join me as members on the new site.

My blog is read in 146 countries, because it is unique and informative, and because the treatments really work. The problem is that I get zero to no compensation for it, meaning I have to work a day job to stay afloat, meaning there is no time or money for the other pursuits I mentioned above. By working in a paid membership platform I can devote myself solely to writing and researching wellness.

The cost to you each month for access to the new stream on Patreon.com, as well as, the original 54 blogs on WordPress is less than you would spend for a large bag of chips. Unfortunately, my requests for donations over the past five years, in order to keep the WordPress site public and free, were ignored. In order to survive, I have to make this move and start charging for my blog streams.


Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators of content to get paid for their work.

Many writings, paintings, and other works of art we enjoy today, those by daVinci, Botticelli, Dickinson, Michelangelo, Picasso, and countless others, only exist because of the support of wealthy patrons who paid their bills and put food on the table, enabling them to concentrate on their work and not have to take a job with the local seamstress, blacksmith, or fish monger.

Sometimes a single patron made it possible for an artist or writer to have the time and freedom to produce work that still enchants, enlightens, and informs our souls today. It isn’t easy to find anyone nowadays who can afford to do that, or who is willing to do so even if they can afford it.

But if an artist is lucky, they can find a lot of people willing to give a little on a regular basis. That’s what Patreon is all about and what I am looking for.

Patrons join Patreon and agree to support a specific artist or writer and pay an agreed upon amount to the creator monthly, or each time they publish.

I am going on the monthly plan with a goal of creating one or more blogs a month. Your credit card will be charged each month. You can cancel membership at any time.

When you register on Patreon as one of my patrons, you will have access to all my new blogs posted there. I will also add your email to the word press blog, so that you can access it any time by simply signing in under that email.

I am hopeful that most of you will be able and willing to follow me to Patreon and continue to receive my blogs. But in order to make this move workable, I will only be able to answer private emails from my Patreon patrons.

For anyone wanting to make a tax-free donation without joining Patreon, you may still do so through paypal.com to the account of lynncapehartnonprofit@outlook.com. And I thank you in advance.

I’m not sure about the link so please go to www.patreon.com and type my name into the search box.

I wish you good health and a long life. I look forward to continuing our relationship and interacting with you on Patreon. I have a lot more to share with you. If you are unable to follow me on this new journey, please wish me good luck and safe passage. And I wish you the same.




You can go to a hundred places online and find weight loss pills, helpful diet hints, food plans, and another walk through the food pyramid. You won’t find much of that in this blog. But you will gain a deeper understanding of the natural forces that drive you to overeat. It turns out that it isn’t entirely your fault after all if you’re overweight. Not entirely.


The first documented primate to humanoid link began evolving into present day humanity about six million years ago. Two million years ago the Homo group, including our own species, Homo Sapien, began its turn on the ladder of evolution. It is believed that our modern human sub species, Homo Sapien Sapien began evolving only about 200,000 years ago, from the genetic threads of those who went before.

That means that the biological unit whose weight you are trying to manipulate got its first programming instructions on how to handle food, famine, and feast about six million years ago. Unfortunately, those ancient instructions cannot be overridden or ignored.

This is the core issue of weight control, so let’s be clear. Your body has been programmed by evolution to have its own agenda independent of your consciousness. It doesn’t care what you would like it to weigh. It cares only about survival. Because of this programming, your body’s set point is going to lean toward being overweight, rather than under.

If you want to control your weight, you have to make it happen within the confines and parameters of this prehistoric programming. Your body will never change. So you have to. Weight control has to happen in your head in conformity with your biology. You have to mentally overcome your body’s coding telling you to consume as much food as you can and more than you need. In other words, to overeat.

But first, more on the evolutionary aspect of trying to lose weight.


Every living creature on Earth depends on the planet for sustenance. Whether it’s access to plant matter or the opportunity to devour each other, Earth provides. But not always enough.

1. Famine

In earliest times, in a pre-supermarket environment, when your next available meal was actually on-the-hoof and roaming free, or growing on the side of a cliff that you had to risk your life to get to, this meant that people sometimes went hungry. Those periods of sustained deprivation, the famines, could last weeks or even years. If the human body had not been programmed by evolution to store resources consumed at an earlier time, it could not have survived the scarcities. And humanity would quickly have gone extinct.

2. Feast

In that same vein, when there is plenty of food available, when there is feasting, the body is coded to push you to consume more food than you need at that moment. Because only by consuming more than it actually needs during feast times can the body have resources to put away for the inevitable famines it has been programmed to expect.

3. Food Storage

Our modern problem is that it’s always feast time in our culture and the body has no real shut off switch when it comes to storing your over consumption. If the body had a true shut off concerning appetite and satiety, you wouldn’t hear about people having walls removed so they could leave their houses. These people are deep in the clutches of unfortunate evolutionary forces that cause them to store resources to a life-threatening extent. The food storage mechanism meant to save them is destroying them instead.

Definition: Satiety: A simple feedback mechanism is responsible for telling your brain to stop eating when you are full.

As you eat your stomach wall expands and two things happen:

(1) The expansion signals your brain that you are filling up and it’s time to stop eating;

(2) A hormone produced at the start of your meal telling your brain that your stomach was empty now stops sending its signal.

The result is two impulses reaching your brain at the same time. One telling you that your stomach is full, and the other telling you that your stomach is no longer empty. This dual mechanism is suppose to make you stop eating when your are full.

As far as Boss Evolution is concerned, that mechanism is just an update on your stomach contents. It has no compelling powers to make you stop eating.

But Boss Evolution can compel you to eat beyond satiety. How many times have you been eating something delicious and simply ignored those signals? Just kept right on eating. Your stomach is designed to stretch to accommodate overeating during feast times, so it’s easy enough to do.

When you diet, you push back against millions of years of coding via evolution. Isn’t it true that when you diet you often feel like you are engaged in a battle with your body? That’s because you are. All your body knows it that you are trying to rob it of its resources and hack into its “savings account.” It’s going to fight to protect its fat stores.


It appears that humans are programmed to overeat for their own protection. Just in case. If you weren’t designed to overeat, why would your stomach be able to expand? The simple truth is that if you weren’t designed to overeat, you wouldn’t be able to.

And it follows then that a propensity for being overweight has been predetermined for the human species. Pity the poor person trying to control his weight. He is living in a culture where it is always feast time, while he is trapped inside a body that is continually storing nuts for a hard winter that never comes.

And yet this is an efficacious system that has worked successfully for eons. In fact, the body’s ability to store calories eaten today for emergencies that may occur tomorrow is the primary reason humans have survived. In prehistoric times, when all the plants died due to drought or other devastation, and the prey disappeared, all humans had between them and the dark oblivion was the fat that had been stored during the feasts.

That primitive compulsion to eat more than you need is why it is so hard to control your eating habits, especially as you are surrounded and bombarded by images urging you to eat. That compulsion is why despite the horrendous statistics on obesity, especially in the U.S., many restaurants still serve single dishes that should be able to feed two people.

Overeating wasn’t a problem when our programming began. Overeating was and is a safety mechanism, a survival tool. Unfortunately, our bodies were not designed for a world of plenty. Today, many humans are at far more risk from having too much to eat than too little. And that’s sad, because there are still many people who go to bed hungry.


The same food compulsion discussed above manifests in other collective ways.

The TV award shows are very popular, as are the nasty fashion police that follow like jackals after the herd. I have watched numerous times as hosts fret on air about a celebrity being too fat or too thin. Both seem to be equally offensive to the camera and to tribal sensitivities.

Large people complain about being stared at. What they may not know is that very thin, anorexic-looking people get equal attention. Did you ever wonder why people are so vexed by the sight of someone being above or below what is considered “normal” weight? It has to do with tribal genetics.

Picture this: You live in a long-ago plains tribe of 30. Each person has specific duties to perform to ensure the tribe’s well being. As always resources are limited and monitored closely. In such a small group, everyone has close knowledge of every other person.

One day it is noticed that Jamal has gained weight, and has developed a tummy paunch. This immediately signals alarm throughout the tribe. Several members report it to the chief. The alarm is caused by an evolutionary perception that since Jamal has gained weight, it can only mean that he is taking more than his fair share of resources, and therefore threatens the safety and survival of everyone. Jamal is therefore suspected of wrong doing.

Or conversely, Ania is whispered about because she has gotten so thin you can clearly see the outlines of her bones. The tribe perceives that she is taking less than her fair share of resources, and is therefore putting them in jeopardy of losing her and her skills as a member resource. Likewise, Ania is suspected of wrong doing.

Both situations threatened the tribe’s resources and welfare equally. That is why it is ingrained in us even today to be suspicious of people who weigh more or less than the tribe intuitively believes is safe. That ancient attitude is based on the same storage programming that compels you to overeat. It was important when the tribe was small. Now that it has grown into the billions, we no longer have to obsess if someone is heavier or thinner than we think is acceptable.

The only factors to consider nowadays are (1) is the person happy and comfortable with their weight and their body, and (2) is the person’s weight such that he or she can be healthy at that size? Health trumps all other considerations.

Health wise, obesity leads to many other disorders that make an individual’s existence painful and unhappy. It also costs the tribe in many ways. If someone doesn’t take care of their own health when they are able, in the end others are forced to do it for them.


When Marilyn Monroe appeared in The Seven Year Itch in 1955, in that now famous scene over the subway grate, with her white dress floating up sensuously to expose legs and hips, she was a size 14, and considered to be the ideal woman. Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model expanded its demographic one season by selecting two “plus-size” models who were, you guessed it, size 14.

But due to vanity sizing today Marilyn would be a size 6 with the same body as when she was a size 14. It seems that the clothing industry caved in to cultural sensitivities about weight and size. In 1958 a size 8 had a 24 inch waist; today a size 8 has a 30 inch waist. And a size 20 from 1958 is now a size 12.

Definition: Vanity Sizing: This is the practice of reducing tag sizes of larger clothing to make women feel that they are actually thinner than they really are.

Thanks to influential pop figures like the Kardashians, the world has slowly come to accept a more authentic woman figure as ideal. One that is robust and rounded and real. And it is no longer uncommon to see overweight female leads in movies, or held up as sexy figures. Not every body type has to conform and look the same. Our differences are what give us an evolutionary advantage, what make us stronger as a species.

This shift in thinking to a real-woman ideal is healthy. But make no mistake, it can’t be taken too far without back firing. You don’t get a free pass from illness if you are overweight, no matter how much acceptance you receive from your peers. You will still pay for it with serious health issues and a shortened life.

When is the last time you saw an obese senior? There aren’t many, because the obese die young, with a low chance of surviving into old age. Obesity is still the number one preventable cause of death in the U.S., because it factors into so many other disorders.

The right size for a human being is a size that lets you eat and enjoy food without endangering your health. But don’t worry about looking like anyone else. Each of you is beautiful in some way, and there is always someone else who will notice and appreciate your beauty. Just be yourself so they fall for the real you. And practice a little discipline about what and how much you put in your mouth.


Okay, so now we know why it is so hard to lose weight. But there are behaviors you can use to lessen the impact of the biological imperatives we’ve been talking about.

First There Is The Practical • • • •


Portion control is the hardest part of dieting, but it has to be done if you want to control your weight. If you could conquer this one single step you could weigh what you please without changing anything, including your food choices. You could pretty much eat whatever you wanted, no matter how high in calories or fat, if you restricted yourself to a small enough portion. Sometimes this might mean only a couple of bites, but you could have them guilt free.

It would be better if you could be attracted to healthier foods. That would mean you could eat more, stay healthy, and still lose weight. An important step toward weight control is to start eating a portion size that supports the weight you want to be, not the weight you are. There are things you can do to make portion control easier.

  1. Use Small Dishes 

This is more helpful than you might think. It fools the brain, and consequently the stomach, into thinking you are getting a whole plate or bowl of food. You’d be surprised at how the brain’s perception can effect your sense of reality. You are filling up a plate, but, since the plate is smaller the portions have to be. Over time you will get used to smaller portions. You will actually eat less at each meal, but possibly feel just as satisfied. Without trying very hard you can lose weight over time, while not feeling like you are actually dieting.

  1. No Second Helpings No Matter What, Where, Or When 

Think about it. If you don’t apply this logic to your regimen, you could use a small plate or bowl, but load it up over and over until all advantage of using a smaller dish has been lost.

  1. TV Dinner Portion Sizes Can Provide Guidance

If you can’t get the hang of small portions, buy a low cal TV dinner (around 400 calories). When it is cooked remove the food from the container and place it on your “small” plate. Take a good look at the portions as they look on the plate you will always use. Take a photo. Hang that photo on the refrigerator door. Refer to that photo every time you eat a meal. Always keep your portions that size.

  1. Better To Eat More Small Meals Daily Than Fewer Large Ones

Smaller meals burn off faster, and don’t so easily end up as stored fat. Larger meals take longer to digest. They slow down your digestive system, and are more likely to cause a higher percentage of fat storage. People are discouraged from nibbling between meals, but I know thin people who nibble their way through the day. Nibbling only adds weight if you are eating three regular meals a day on top of the nibbling. If you don’t eat that way there is no harm in nibbling.

  1. Eating Smaller Portions Has Other Benefits Besides Losing Weight

In the 1960’s there was a particularly interesting experiment done on appetite and food consumption, as it relates to good health and longevity. Rats were separated into two groups. Both groups were fed the same food, what was described as a “typical American diet.” The difference was that each group was given a different portion size. But everything else was the same.

One group got several meals a day, plus between meal snacks, as much food as they wanted, anytime they chose. The second group got just enough food to satisfy their daily nutritional needs.

Which group do you think all died early and sick?

It was the group that ate as much as they wanted. The group that had their portions controlled lived a much longer and disease free life. Keep in mind that they ate the same food. Only the portion size was different.


When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, it covered Pompeii in tons of ash and pumice rising 20 feet. When excavations began, scientists gained detailed insight into the lives of its citizens by studying the remains. The scientists separated the bodies into the servant class and the ruling class right away. I was intrigued by this. How bodies dead for centuries could give up that kind of specific information.

It came down to the shape and strength of their respective bones!

The servant class had strong, dense, non-porous bones. The aristocracy had weak, thin, porous bones. Servants had stronger bones because they had to stand, bend, lift, pull, stretch, push, and carry in the process of caring for the lord and lady of the manor. The lack of movement found in the sedentary life of the rich, caused bones to weaken and growth to slow down or even stop.

It is the movement of muscle across bone that signals the body to increase bone growth. That’s why exercise makes your bones grow. Extra muscle movement over the bones tells the body that more is needed from that part of the bone structure. The body then gets busy bulking up the effected bones.

If you’re trying to lose or control your weight, exercise—movement—is essential. It burns calories. It makes you look better and thinner right away. Even if you don’t actually lose much weight, you can “visually” lose five pounds just by exercising regularly for a week. Meaning, you may weigh the same but you will look thinner.

You’ve heard it before but it bears repeating: weight is simply calories burned versus calories consumed. If they are equal you maintain your weight. If more goes in than is burned, the extra is sent to storage and you gain weight. The only way to lose is to burn off more calories than you consume.

Note: I don’t like to exercise. I certainly don’t like getting cleaned up and dressed and driving somewhere just to exercise.

My solution is the Body Rider stationery bicycle. It is such a simple, incredibly effective machine. You get a great heart healthy aerobic workout without stressing your knees. It burns a lot of calories. It retails online for around $100, with free shipping. It uses no electricity, only the raw energy that you provide. It works not only the legs but the upper arms, which switch over every time your legs do. It has a built in fan, and a computer LED type display that gives you information on speed and distance traveled.

Another fine feature about any bicycle is what it does for the butt and lower back. It strengthens the lower back, and practically overnight lifts and firms the butt, making a noticeable difference. That and the Abs of Steel sculpting workout I memorized keep me home in my PJs and out of my car. I exercise almost every day, just take the six steps across my bedroom floor and I’m at the gym.

If you want your body to remain vital you have to keep it moving. Fifteen minutes a day on any kind of bicycle or other strong aerobics, plus fifteen minutes of floor or free weight exercises, four days a week, can keep you healthy and looking good. If you can’t do 15 minutes of either, start at 1 minute and move up 1 minute a day from there, but you must keep moving.

Then There Is The Counter Intuitive • • • •


I’m working on a book called Dieting With Dessert, based on the following concept.

Because of the compulsive programming we discussed above, it is important when dieting to make sure your body never gets the idea that you are going hungry. If it finds out you are dieting it’s all over. It will lower your metabolism to ensure that fewer calories are burned, and the less you try to eat the slower it will run. You can still lose the weight but it will be hell.

If you were traveling with Han Solo on his space ship, and a malfunction caused his craft to start losing power, he would power down all systems except life support and defense, to preserve power. Your body is the space ship carrying you through life.

If your body senses that it’s power source has been compromised it will lower the rate at which it runs to preserve its stored resources. This ensures that fewer calories are being burned from its “savings account.” There is no way around this except to make your body believe that you are not dieting, while still actually dieting.

The secret is dessert. As long as you eat dessert once a day, your body is less likely to lower your metabolism, because dessert signals feast not famine. It is very hard for your body to process the dichotomy that you are simultaneously dieting and also eating chocolate cake. In other words, if you’re eating dessert there is nothing for your body to fear.

The dessert serving should be a reasonable size (200-350 calories), and of course no seconds. But there are no limitations as to choice. Have any dessert that you want, but know that the richer and more “expensive” it is in calories, the smaller must be your portion size.

This practice can be fun and motivating. Planning your diet around small daily servings of the most delicious desserts can be the reward that gets you through a tough day of food denial. It also helps you stick with your diet. It is the “carrot” that can keep you on the treadmill. But this only works if you are otherwise seriously dieting. 


You should not continually go on and off diets. Every time you diet, you signal your body that you have entered famine conditions. Every time you enter famine conditions, your body lowers your metabolism to slow down the expenditure of calories. After a number of diets, weight loss becomes nearly impossible because your metabolism is set so low. This result after so many attempts can be disheartening and can ruin one’s initiative to lose weight.


Your body is willing to let go of the stored fat from “short term feasting,” without putting up a struggle. This is the fat and stored calories resulting from short term overeating, say, as you would during holidays. You can get the weight off fast if you attack it as soon as the event is over. Your body will only easily give up that weight it has recently gained. You don’t want to do this short term dieting often or for long, or it may trigger the sluggish metabolism associated with serial dieting.

If you wait too long to lose the holiday weight, until after your body has oved the fat from “short term savings” to “long term savings,” it is much harder to get rid of. That’s when your body will really wage battle against your diet efforts.


If you are part of the 99 percent you have to watch what you spend. If you are trying to lose weight you have to watch what you eat. In both cases you are dealing with categorical units—money and calories—that can be kept track of. Money, you want to increase and hold on to. Calories, you want to decrease and let go of. 

To be successful when dealing with money or calories you have to control yourself most of the time. The lesson is that you can be naughty some of the time, and get away with it. If you’re a spendthrift or glutton 15 percent of the time, you can still get ahead or stay healthy. But if you’re a spendthrift or glutton 85 percent of the time, you’re going to be poor or obese.

But when you are bad occasionally you can make up for it by balancing your over-the-top excessive spending or eating, with short term conservative behavior to bring things back into balance, i.e., build the money back up in your checking account by passing up other purchases that you would like to make. Or quickly get rid of the extra pounds you gained by eating dinner salads for a week.

Just try being as careful with your calories as you are with your money.


Sometimes it feels like the body is winning that war we talked about earlier. That’s the time to dig deeper and get creative. Sometimes you have to resort to drastic, but never harmful, measures to control your appetite.

One example: It was hard to eat properly during the first year of law school due to the all day and most of the night schedule of class and studying. The result was that you noshed on comfort foods day and night. The only exercise you got was lifting a legal tome off a library shelf. At home I kept finding myself standing at the open refrigerator door, staring in. When I turned around I had a law book in one hand and some sort of food in the other.

That’s when I bought my first length of chain and a padlock.

Every night at 8:00 I wrapped the chain around my refrigerator and snapped the padlock. I chose that time because I’d read somewhere that eating close to bedtime sends the calories directly to storage. I also put any tasty morsels from my cabinets in the fridge before I locked it. I had a roommate so I had to leave the key in easy reach.

I lost the 15 pounds. By the time I graduated law school I had given up the chain. (I won’t say that I haven’t resorted to it again from time to time.) You may be wondering what kept me from sneaking in anytime I wanted since the key was right there. How stupid would a person feel to go to all that trouble and then sabotage their own efforts? No sir. The chain was sacrosanct once it was padlocked. I unlocked it at 7:00 each morning.


At the top I said that if you were overweight it wasn’t entirely your fault. Now that you know what your evolutionary weaknesses are when it comes to controlling your weight, and why they exist, you have a duty to try harder to overcome them for your own sake.

Please be nice to each other, and look for my next blog: Blog 36: Entry 1: Cheryl’s Cancer Log, where you can follow this breast cancer survivor through a six-week natural cure that worked.

Thank you for your support.





I am happy to report that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service has granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status to Lynn Capehart Wellness Foundation, Inc., meaning that any donation given to support our goals of curing disease and promoting wellness and longevity through natural drug-free treatments is a tax exempt contribution to a public charity, and a write-off on your tax return.

You may make a tax-free donation to LCWF with a credit card or a bank account through www.paypal.com to the email address lynncapehartnonprofit@outlook.com. If you want to send a check or money order, please contact me directly through the same email. We are actively seeking donations and would appreciate any help you can give. There is a lot we can do to educate people and show them how to take control of their health and live longer, happier lives, if we have the funds.

All donations will be placed in our General unrestricted account, and from there disbursed within the guidelines for non profits, to one of three areas:

Area 1. WELLNESS   

We will continue to implement new programs, but for now we would like to concentrate on the following: 

A. Nutrition Grants: We will provide partial and full supplement-cost grants based on need. Depending on the disease or disorder, the monthly cost to control it with food supplements can be $35-$250 or more. Many people cannot afford this, even though it would mean being completely healthy. Some of them have health insurance but the companies won’t cover food supplements, even though it would mean lowering their overall costs. This program will also permit us to compile statistics from each participant that support the premise that nutrition heals all on its own, which will feed into our clinical studies.

B. Educational Forums: We will educate people to remain disease free through completely natural means. Too many people know too little about what’s happening inside their bodies. And it’s not all that complicated if you have the proper education. These workshops, seminars, classes, and interactive lectures will explain how to use food and supplements to prevent and eliminate any disorder.

They will include treatments for specific diseases like cancer, asthma, arthritis, and other disorders. Participants will also learn how to feed and train their children to stop childhood obesity. There will be lessons in shopping held right in the markets, and cooking classes to show how to  prepare food for maximum nutrition. There will be anti-aging workshops to explain what happens inside the body as it ages, and easy techniques to slow it down. Plus, many more subjects.

C. Clinical Studies: We will fund studies for specific diseases, and the publication of the results. For a long time I’ve been adamant that my theories on healing are more efficacious than any medical techniques available today. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to support my statements—I’ve cured thousands—but I keep getting requests for actual “studies.” Physicians, especially, clamor for those kinds of  results. Even though the logic is staring them in the face, they want to see it written down and corroborated.

D. Research & Development: We will research other subjects that impact health, such as new ways of delivering high doses of food supplements to people unable to eat and/or take the amount of supplements they need for whatever reason. We would also like to develop and market effective natural products.


This may not sound glamorous, but it’s important and pays for the nuts and bolts administrative costs—communications, salaries, office equipment and supplies, insurance, marketing, postage, rentals, legal, and accounting, among other things, and without which we cannot operate.


Money in this fund will go towards the purchase of a space to house the Lynn Capehart Wellness Center, in San Diego, California, where people can come for natural treatments, workshops, seminars, classes, interactive lectures, yoga and targeted exercise.

Currently, it is estimated that there are from 12,000 to over 100,000 documented diseases, some of which affect a handful of people, like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare degenerative brain disorder that affects one person per million per year worldwide, to others that affect millions, like cancer, which kills almost eight million people annually worldwide. These diseases are separated by the medical industry into four types, pathogenic, deficiency, heredity, and physiological, but actually all diseases are deficiency based and can be treated and cured with nutrition.

Regardless of how prevalent a disease is or which type it is labeled, all diseases can fit into one or more of seven categories. Let me put that another way: there are only seven things that can go wrong with the body, not 100,000. From the outside looking in, they may appear to be 100,000 different disorders, but in fact, every single one of them can fit into these seven categories. The human body is not nearly as complicated as you have been led to believe. Just the opposite, it is a simple machine, easily maintained in peak condition with proper nutrition.


I figured out the seven category theory by studying Albert Einstein’s theories on relativity. I often wondered how Dr. Einstein could be stuck here on Earth and still theorize correctly about our universe. How could he know for certain without being out there? He was able to do so because he made an important assumption at the start, on which he based all his subsequent theories. That assumption, which turned out to be correct, was that our universe is a “constant.” Dr. Einstein realized therefore, that if he could formulate a theory and prove that it worked here on Earth, since the universe is constant, he knew that the same proven theory would work equally well anywhere else within the same universe.

Dr. Einstein studied and theorized about the “larger outer” universe. The human body can be viewed as a “smaller inner” universe, and follows the same constancy rule relied on by him. The human body is a closed and constant system. Therefore, if I find a food supplement that works to open a blockage in a lung, like congestion, I know that same treatment will work to open a blockage anywhere within the same closed system, whether in an artery to prevent heart attacks, dementia, or erectile dysfunction, in the liver to prevent fatty deposits, in a toe to prevent gout, in the sinus cavity to prevent headaches and post nasal drip, in fact anywhere that a blockage exists within the same closed system.


A healthy body is your second most precious gift after life itself, yours to nourish or neglect. The organic vessel you occupy needs a certain amount of continual care and upkeep. It isn’t an appliance you can plug in at birth and forget about. It will withstand a lot of physical abuse from its person before it succumbs to illness, disease, and premature aging, but the trip there is inevitable if it isn’t provided with enough nutrition. But that’s all it needs. With proper nutrition you can walk through life unscathed by disease.

The following are the seven things that can go wrong with your body. They can all be treated effectively with nutrition and the additional support of food supplements. You need the additional support of food supplements, because you can’t get enough nutrition from your diet to avoid all disease. But there is no disease or disorder that does not fall into one or more of these seven categories. Remember that all disease is directly attributable to your diet, and what you do and don’t eat.


This is where all disease and bodily malfunctions begin for ailments such as Type 2 diabetes and obesity, which are caused solely by malnutrition. When things first start to go wrong they often go unnoticed as resulting from simple malnutrition, because they are seemingly insignificant. Disorders like bleeding gums, constipation, and forgetfulness don’t seem serious and most people experience these health problems from time to time without giving them a second thought. They think this sort of malfunction is normal, just part of being alive. But it’s the first step toward more serious diseases.

Bleeding gums signal a worsening condition of weak blood vessel walls, due to a lack of Rutin, which could lead to a brain aneurism stroke. Chronic constipation means poor evacuation and subsequent retention of rotting matter in your colon from a lack of enough fresh food and Magnesium that could lead to cancer. Forgetfulness could signal a growing blockage from a lack of Lecithin that will end up as dementia and the premature loss of mental function. If these ailments are not treated properly and early with the correct nutrition, they will develop into one of five other categories. The seventh category is hormonal disruption that comes with aging and is not directly associated with malnutrition, but is still easily avoided with the correct food supplement.


If simple malnutrition goes untreated long enough it can develop into inflammation, which grows out of a lack of foods high in antioxidants, and a failure to supplement your diet with Beta Carotene and other antioxidant supplements. Without enough antioxidants, free radicals grow exponentially. When free radicals reach a threshold of oxidation, also known as decay, it triggers the body’s defenses, which manifest as inflammation, and present with pain, swelling, tenderness, and redness. Once inflammation is present, you are susceptible to any number of infections and inflammation based diseases, like cancer, asthma, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s Disease, diverticulitis, and even failure to heal properly, among others. Rampant free radical growth and inflammation are also the result of radiation poisoning, which can be treated with Beta Carotene in massive doses. Both infection and inflammation stem from exponential free radical growth.


Untreated simple malnutrition can also result in blockages throughout your body, which form a whole subset of diseases. When you eat something your body has trouble processing, like sirloin steak with butter sauce and a fried egg on top, baked potato with bacon bits, butter and sour cream, fried broccoli with blue cheese dressing, and ice cream with whipped cream, without also taking an emulsifier, your body has trouble breaking it down.

Without an emulsifier like Lecithin, your body can’t eliminate the organic deposits which settle in your arteries and form plaque and blood clots, in your lungs to form congestion, between your joints to cause stiffness and loss of mobility, in your penis to cause erectile dysfunction, in your eyes to cause glaucoma, in your jaw to cause TMJ, as well as, many other areas throughout your body. Once again, all these disorders appear to be independent of each other but are in fact classified under the category of blockages, and they can, therefore, all be treated with the same supplement, Lecithin.


Another large class of diseases stem from an inappropriate reaction of your immune system, which is designed to fight off pathogenic intruders. It is your defense mechanism against diseases caused by bacterium, virus, and other microorganism. It is the moat around the castle, the army at the gate to keep out the infidels. But sometimes the army gets confused and starts attacking the castle itself, its host body. An auto-immune disorder arises when the immune system sees danger in substances, organs, and tissues normally present in the body—ones it is supposed to defend.

Unfortunately, the only treatment the medical industry has for an auto-immune disease is to suppress and sometimes completely shut down the immune system. The problem with this is obvious: yes you stop the particular inappropriate reaction by putting the system to sleep, but you also disable the body’s entire defense system, making it susceptible to all sorts of other pathogenic attacks. What would happen if you gave knock out drugs to the army at the gate? All sorts of intruders would walk right past them and gain entry. That’s why so many people living with an auto-immune disease and taking prescription medicines to suppress the immune system end up in the ER, with sometimes life threatening problems unrelated to the original disease.

The list of auto-immune diseases is extensive and includes disorders as common as seasonal allergies, to type 1 diabetes, eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Graves’ Disease, vertigo and dizziness (Meniere’s disease), lupus, and Addison’s Disease, among others. Again, despite the differing nature of these disorders, since they are all auto-immune based, they can all be treated with the same food supplements and prevented, controlled and eliminated. The idea is not to shut down or suppress the immune system but to calm it down so it stops overreacting and attacking its host. This can be done with the correct combinations of food supplements, including Bee Pollen and Monavie Active.


A virus is any infecting agent that multiples inside the body, corrupting systems and causing disease, sometimes even death. The list of viral based diseases is extensive, including the flu, hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, yellow fever, mumps, shingles, rubella, chicken pox, Epstein Barr/mononucleosis, herpes—both genital and cold sores, even smallpox, among others. The mistake that the medical industry makes is to believe that each of these diseases needs a different type of treatment and drug.

We have to start thinking like the body does. A virus gets in and does damage in different ways, but they all have one thing in common. Despite their origin or behavior, a virus has to replicate repeated generations of itself, or it dies and you get better. Therefore, the key is to disrupt a virus’s DNA replication cycle. If you can do that, you will prevent it from spawning more generations…you will kill it off. But that’s all you have to do to end any virus: stop it from reproducing!

You see, a virus’ life span is too short for it to do any real harm inside your body. Therefore, it must replicate itself continually, so that the new generations can continue the bodily harassment against you. L-Lysine will disrupt the replication cycle of ANY virus. Any virus! Meaning, that whatever virus you contract, that same supplement can be used to stop it, because all you’re trying to stop is the reproduction cycle. We may distinguish between viruses but as long as you are able to stop them from breeding, it doesn’t matter to the body.


This category occurs when your body becomes saturated with toxins, much like the soldiers who returned from Operation Desert Storm in the 1990-1991 Gulf War, with a disorder that was subsequently named, Gulf War Syndrome. The body has many cleansing mechanisms but when they become overloaded by too many toxins, the body will break down and present with a variety of illnesses. The women and men who were there faced an unrelenting barrage of toxins, mostly from the burning oil fields. Their lungs, livers and other organs were inundated with toxins they could not process or eliminate.

We all have trash and garbage cans in our homes. When they are full up they just won’t hold any more. Left unattended, rot sets in and the stink is profound. The body is the same: when its trash carriers are full and aren’t cleaned out, disease results.

Those of us who are fortunate enough not to have to go to war, thanks to a strong and dedicated military, still face toxin overload in our daily civilian lives. If you smoke cigarettes, live near a factory, live in a large city with a lot of motor vehicle traffic, your body becomes tainted with innumerable toxins. The United States makes an effort to control air pollution, but there are some countries (you know who they are), where it is a minor concern, and their citizens suffer accordingly. The correct food supplements like a combination of L-Cysteine and Vitamin C Complex with other nutritional support can clean out the overloaded body and return it to normalcy.


Regardless of how well you treat your body, a time will come as you age, when your hormonal production breaks down. Think of it as having spent your life on an aircraft kept on automatic pilot. Suddenly, one day you notice that the ground is getting a little closer each day. That’s because the autopilot is failing. For your entire life, your hormonal autopilot has been distributing the necessary hormones throughout your body. Then it slows down and gets confused and sends out the wrong combinations, or not enough. It’s the same for men and women.

Women go through menopause, experiencing mood swings, bone loss, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, a loss of sex drive, dry aging skin and age spots, lack of energy, and perhaps the most psychologically painful—the barrel-waist look that no amount of dieting can get rid of, among other problems.

Men have it just as bad, and experience impotence, low testosterone, lack of sex drive, difficulty passing urine, mood swings, depression, reduced muscular strength, hair loss, bone loss, panic, low sperm count, incontinence, dry aging skin and age spots, and a drooping stomach hanging over the belt, among other things.

The medical industry tried to replace the natural hormone loss in women by giving them hormone replacement therapy. But there were reports of all sorts of problems, including increased incidence of cancer. That’s because the system that produces hormones in both male and female bodies is much too complex to be regulated from the outside.

You can’t use hormone replacement to properly regulate the correct amount of hormones needed by an individual, but you can take a food supplement that signals your body to continue making hormones on its own, in whatever amounts it thinks it needs. The best food supplement I have found for both men and women is DHEA/Youthful You. Depending on whether it’s taken by a man or a woman, it signals the body to continue making the appropriate amount of hormones.


Sometimes, when simple malnutrition goes untreated it worsens and morphs into more than one of the seven categories. Therefore, some diseases will be listed in more than one category, like rheumatoid arthritis, which is listed under auto-immune because that is the trigger, inflammation, which is the body’s response to the trigger, and blockages because it causes organic debris to accumulate in the joints, robbing you of mobility and freedom of movement. You could use Monavie Active alone to control RA, or if you cannot afford the expense, you could use Bee Pollen to calm down the immune system, Beta Carotene to quell the inflammation, Lecithin to break up and prevent the blockages in the joints, and iron and B12 to avoid the debilitating fatigue.

Likewise with asthma, which is listed under inflammation because it is a chronic inflammation of the lungs, and blockages because of the mucus and excess toxins that form in your lungs. You could use Beta Carotene to stop the chronic inflammation, Lecithin to break up the hardened mucus in your lungs, and L-Cysteine and Vitamin C together to remove excess toxins and ease your breathing.


You have been so misled for so long that I know it’s hard to believe that there are only seven things that go wrong with the body, and that they are all capable of being controlled, cured and prevented with simple, inexpensive food supplements, but I promise you that this is true. Staying healthy is easy and relatively cheap. It boggles the mind to watch the numbers being spent, as we throw billions of dollars at diseases like cancer, which can be completely cured with just Beta Carotene and Vitamin D3 taken in sufficient doses.

I know it’s hard to believe, but you have to take over control of your health now, because the medical industry doesn’t know what it’s doing and has failed you miserably. It’s not the diseases, but the ignorance that kills so many people. I read the other online sites and see the same phrases used over and over, indicating that they don’t know what causes diseases. I know what causes every disease and I know how to actually cure and prevent them by using nutrition and food supplements. Never forget that your body was constructed in the womb from the nutrition consumed by your mother. No nutrition, no you. Doesn’t it make perfect sense then that if nutrition was used to build your body, nutrition should also be used to repair it?

A pregnant woman’s body is a biological factory, a product manufacturing site, and a distribution port for the human race. It takes in raw materials in the form of nutrition, breaks down the elements into a usable form, and shunts the majority of those resources to the design floor, the womb, where they are utilized in a combined production, resulting usually in a fairly decent product being shipped. Namely, you.

No matter how you were conceived, naturally or in a petri dish, you came to term inside one of these female factories, having grown and survived after conception on the nutrition that your mother consumed. You’ve heard the expression, “you are what you eat.” Well, in a very real sense, at birth you were what your mother ate. As there is no other way for you to get here, to this reality, it can be said that you—the body you inhabit—are literally, not figuratively, constructed from nutrition. Constructed from the same proteins, vitamins, minerals, herbs, plant extracts, and other concentrated food formulations that I recommend to heal your body and maintain wellness.


The premise for all my theories, the reason for my absolute promise to you that nutrition can heal any disease, is based on the fact that since vitamins created your body, it is logical to believe that the same nutrition can repair it. The particular genetic recipe for each of you is contained in your individual genes. But the instructions in the genetic code cannot be implemented without the addition of nutrition into the process. In other words, your genes need an energy source in order to activate and then construct your body based on your chromosomal blueprint. This energy source is none other than the food nutrition provided by your mother’s own choices and consumption patterns.

The genes you inherited turn off and on throughout your lifetime. This is one way that mama evolution keeps things interesting and ensures that you don’t pass on the same genetics to each offspring. This mix-it-up plan makes better usage of the gene pool from whence you sprang. That’s why your sister can look like dad while your brother looks just like dad’s granduncle, Ted. And you look like your mother’s great-grandaunt, Selendra, the financial investment wizard who died in 1929. Let’s say that you were lucky enough to inherit Selendra’s genes for math and financial projection. Meaning, you have within your genetics specific code for a future on Wall Street, and achieving financial stability in your youth.


But let’s also say that you were conceived in a time of ongoing crisis or famine, and that during your manufacturing process, your mother consumed only 27 percent of the proteins, 16 percent of the B complex components, and 31 percent of important minerals that are necessary to grow an optimal human brain. While the majority of her consumed nutrition was shunted to you in the uterus, some of it was kept and utilized by your mother so she could continue functioning. Call it overhead, like you’d spend to keep any factory functioning, say for gas, electric, and cleaning services. So the percentages of these important nutritional elements were even lower for you during gestation.

In this case, there will certainly be fewer nutrients than necessary to grow the cerebral area pertaining to mathematics. And suppose that the crisis or famine situation includes a toxic atmosphere, which causes rampant free radical growth in your mother’s factory. She is eating only 25 percent of the antioxidants she needs to control free radical activity. So, even though you have the genetics, you come to term without great-grandaunt Selendra’s math abilities due to a lack of nutrition, and already predisposed to free radical inflammation based conditions, like cancer, and multiple sclerosis.

This is certainly a worst case, but I am trying to make the point that nutrition counts at every single step in the process of growing, caring for, and keeping a human body well and free of disease. It especially counts during pregnancy when the new human is under construction, and later when it needs repair.


Pregnant women are notorious for their wild food fancies—from pickle and pomegranate casserole to peanut butter and popcorn sandwiches. But what they eat translates directly into sustenance for the growing fetus. It translates into bone and sinew, into blood vessel and brain matter, fingernails, faces, skin and hair. Every bit of you is constructed by nutrition.

Perhaps one day your mother woke up and unbeknownst to her, her factory was scheduled to produce ears and hearing for you that day. Maybe the production line needed a lot of extra potassium that day in order to get the hearing just right, so you would have perfect pitch. The factory foreman sent resource demands to her brain and your mother spent the next few days stuffing herself to exhaustion with guacamole and corn chips, buttered potatoes and lima beans, and pint after pint of fresh picked blueberries, all good sources of potassium. By the end of the week, the factory had moved on to eyes, and you had the perfect pitch of Yo-Yo Ma.

This transfer of nutrition happens minute by minute while you are in the factory, in the womb. Let’s say that while you were gestating, your mother ate as a snack one afternoon, a 16 ounce broiled sirloin, french fries, sautéed winter vegetables, and three whole wheat rolls with butter. She shared with you through the umbilical cord, a large portion of the nutrition she consumed at that meal.

From the steak you received, in addition to the calories—a lot of protein to help grow bone and tissue, iron and cobalamin (B12) to facilitate the flow of oxygen and to help regulate how your cells were differentiated, zinc to assist in brain cell formation, and B6 to produce hemoglobin and grow your nervous system.

From the vegetables you received, in addition to calories, protein, and fiber—an enormous assortment of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A, C, K, E, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), folic acid (B9), potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium, among other trace elements.

Each vegetable has these nutrients in varying amounts—e.g., a cup of dried seaweed has 1527 mg of potassium, while a cup of raw spinach has 167 mg. A cup of pumpkin has 12,230 IU of Vitamin A , while a medium baked potato has 17 IU. A cup of parsnips has 1.56 mg of Vitamin E, while fennel and mushroom have none. It’s important to eat a variety of vegetables because they work together to make up for what they each lack.

From the whole wheat hard rolls you received, in addition to calories, protein, and fiber—carbohydrates, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, folic acid, magnesium, selenium, manganese, and important fats, plus other trace elements.

From the butter you received, fat and calories, which are also important in a growing fetus’s diet. You’ve heard the term “baby fat.” It is nature’s gift to a newborn, a nutritional reserve to live on in case there is crisis or famine when it is born.

And that’s just one meal. Think about all the nutrients Mom consumed while carrying you to term. All the raw materials by way of nutrition, that rolled into the factory and were used to make the body you’re parked in right now.


There is plenty of evidence to support agreement that the human body is constructed from nutrition. Once that is established, it’s not such a big leap to the conclusion that when that body gets sick, it makes sense to utilize the same elements to repair it that were used to create it in the first place.

Suppose you came outside one sunny morning, coffee cup in hand, and discovered that Roxanne had dug several holes in your lawn while looking for a lost bone. You love this lawn and repair it immediately with like material: seeds to grow new grass, or a patch of grass to cover the damage. You wouldn’t use cement, or carrots, or velvet, to repair the grass.

If your tire went flat you would repair it with a rubber patch because the tire is made of rubber. If you tore a hole in a denim shirt you would repair it with a cotton patch because the shirt is made of cotton. If an oil derrick arm broke down you would use steel to repair it because it is made from steel. If the sidewalk in front of your house cracked and needed repair, you would use cement because the sidewalk is made of cement. If the road in front of that sidewalk needed a repair, you would use asphalt because the road is made from asphalt. Et cetera.

I think you get the picture. Common sense tells us that when the human body breaks down, gets sick in any way, we should use nutrition to repair it because, say it with me now, “it is made from nutrition.”

Please be nice to each other, and look for my next blog: Blog 27: Asthma, where I tell you how to toss the inhaler for good and get on with your life.
