I love autumn. At our farm, the leaves change and this is the most beautiful time of the year.
Blue Ridge roads in autumn
Yet cold winds, dry and brittle, come with the glory and splendor of the leaf change. Viruses travel more easily in dry conditions so cold and influenza (and I suspect COVID) activity often increases in October.
There’s no guaranteed way to stop viral infections and there is plenty of conflict of thought being waged over the value of vaccinations.
Here’s a couple of tips that can enhance our immune system and improve the odds, of viral or bacterial risk, in our favor.
These ideas are based on theories of how disease evolves from an Indian and Andean health care point of view.
Both sciences see health as a balance of three parts of our body. I’ll call these parts air, fire and water to keep the theory simple.
Air is the aspect of movement, all things in motion from our electrical-chemical system, the energy moving through our nerves into receptors, our breath and especially the energy that moves from the base of the spine to the brain. Fire is all things transformational, seeing, hearing, digestion, etc. Water is the solids and fluids within our system.
The theory starts with the idea that most disease begins with air imbalances. Air is the most easily disturbed part of our physiology and the spinal energy is perhaps most important of all. Its flow is required for life.
Chop off a finger, hand, arm, leg or all of them. The energy to the limb is interrupted. Life may be challenged, but not stopped.
Sever the body energy anywhere along the spinal column and death is pretty much assured. Consequently the body provides special protection for this spinal air energy.
Autumn is a cold, brittle time
Autumn is a bad time for colds and flu and such viral infections. Air energy is easily disturbed and is vulnerable to the cold, brittle, autumnal winds. However it’s not the wind or the dry or the cold that leads to infections.
The body’s protective response is the culprit.
When we go out into the cold, the dry, the brittle, especially without some warming attire, the spinal energy can be disturbed. The body’s response is to dampen the area (throat and nasal passages) with mucus.
Those warm mucus filled areas are perfect cultures for bacteria and viruses to grow.
The simple preventative step is to stay out of the wind and chills, or dress adequately so the body does not feel that the spinal energy is threatened.
Enjoy the beauty of autumn, but stay warm.
There is another threat to the spinal energy.
Another way we get too much air in our system is through fermentation in the digestive system via poor eating.
Eating the wrong food or the right food at the wrong time or chewing in the wrong way leads to build up of internal gas. The body’s reaction is the same as to dry, cold, windy air. The body dampens down the throat and nasal passages with mucus.
Too much mucus creates a downward health spiral.
The philosophy is that such air imbalances (if uncorrected) lead to digestive problems. The mucus drains into the stomach and dampens the digestive fires which hinders digestion. Poor digestion leads to increased fermentation which creates more gas (more air) which leads to more mucus.
If still uncorrected, the digestive problems grow and lead to kidney and liver stress (due to excess toxins created by the poor digestion). If the air imbalance grows, skin problems follow, as the body tries to evacuate excess toxins through the skin.
If still unchecked, these toxins finally lodge in the body and create real illness. If the toxins lodge in the joints, arthritis and joint problems can follow. Toxins lodged in the blood vessels, artery and heart create pulmonary ailments. In other places, the toxic build up can create cancer and varies other illnesses. In the brain, Alzheimer’s, etc.
The toxic buildup, and the mucus laden air passages, increase the odds of a bacterial or viral infection.
There are a variety of easy ways to stop or slow the air imbalances before they start.
One Indian trick is to sip warm water through the day away from meals. This is calming. Try this simple remedy and you will see. We have seen people’s lives change when they have a thermos of warm water on their desk, sip it all day (away from meals)!
More importantly the warm water expands the blood supply in the digestive track and improves digestion. Sip four cups of warm water a day, one in the morning, one mid morning, one afternoon and one in the evening. Even better, use the water to replace caffienated tea or coffee.
Your results will run from great to miraculous. Some people have shed fat, others altered their entire personality. At the least you will feel calmer, better and have more energy regardless of how good or bad your diet is this will make your outlook, your energy and your looks better!
Andeans use herbal tea instead, sipped at room temperature. A Yatchak explained to me that the teas worked better because the body sees them as food and digests and absorbs these liquids.
I have used both these techniques with great results.
Organic coffee, tea and cocoa are great purifiers rich in antioxidants.
However stimulants can increase air imbalances so caffeinated coffee and teas are avoided in the Andean diet. If (like me) you won’t give up coffee, focus on moderation and try to drink only organic coffee and tea. Also drink coffee and tea without mucus inducing milk.
Here are some of the teas regularly used in the Andes:
#1: The Andean shamans brew a cleansing tea made from cinnamon, black cardomom and chamomile.
#2: Chamomile. This tea has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and sedative properties and encourages sleep.
It is used as a treatment for fevers, colds and stomach ailments because it has antiseptic, antispasmodic, antipyretic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiallergenic action. Chamomile is sipped daily in lieu of coffee in the Andes.
#3: Lemon Balm is another tea regularly used. Lemon Balm has been employed against bronchial inflammation, earache, fever, flatulence, headaches, high blood pressure, influenza, mood disorders, palpitations, toothache and vomiting. A tea made from Lemon Balm leaves is said to soothe nervous agitation, sleeping problems, functional gastrointestinal complaints, menstrual cramps and urinary spasms.
Like Chamomile, Lemon Balm helps reduce anxiety and insomnia, plus helps mental focus and concentration.
#4: Mint tea is another sipped at room temperature. Mint is known to soothe the digestive tract and reduce the severity and length of stomach problems.
Two other air regulators are to chew and breath in the correct way.
Correct chewing releases nutrient molecules so energy from food is more quickly released and assimilated. This allows the brain to recognize flavors and release the correct digestive juices for that food. Proper chewing does even more because it stimulates the body’s sphincter (or ring) muscles that surround the various orifices of the body.
Ring muscles include the muscles around the eyes, the nostrils, anus, urethra, genitals and the mouth. In a healthy body, all sphincters work together, contracting and relaxing simultaneously. They also activate the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the musculoskeletal system and the urogenital system. Ring muscles are ultimately responsible for putting all the other muscles and all the organs of the body to work.
Chewing correctly stimulates the ring muscles and consequently improves digestion as well as helps exercise all our muscles.
This chewing exercise comes from Israel. This profoundly powerful method of mastication stimulates the body’s sphincter (or ring) muscles that surround the various orifices of the body.

Ring Muscle Chewing
Ring muscles include the muscles around the eyes, the nostrils, anus, urethra, genitals and the mouth. In a healthy body, all sphincters work together, contracting and relaxing simultaneously.
They also activate the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the musculoskeletal system and the urogenital system. Ring muscles are ultimately responsible for putting all the other muscles and all the organs of the body to work.
Chewing correctly stimulates the ring muscles and consequently helps exercise all our muscles.
Chewing should be done with the lips closed, but with the oral cavity open as wide as possible. When chewing is done correctly the lower sphincters and intestines can be felt working in rhythm and causing the abdomen to contract.
You exercise the neck, chest, abdomen, all the way down to the butt, just by chewing differently.
It also important to chew on both sides of the mouth.
Overeating is a very common problem today and this is fundamentally a result of poor muscle tone of the oral sphincter.
When our sphincter muscles are out of balance the body tries to restore them by chewing. Thus what seems to be the body’s craving for food can be the body’s craving for proper exercise of the sphincters.
Too much food creates fermentation in the digestive system.
With proper exercise the sphincters return to normal operation and there is no longer a demand for more food than the body needs. It is possible to eat enough without the fear of getting fat. All you have to do is to make sure to open your jaws widely enough with each chew to bring all the sphincters muscles into action. This will reduce your body’s craving to eat and will also enable your body to burn up more calories more efficiently.
The flu season is here. No one knows what this autumn will bring, a surge in the pandemic, increased social unrest, economic chaos. Whatever comes, we have to face it. The healthier we are, the better we can meet and beat the challenges.
These three simple steps, dress for the weather, chew correctly and drink warm water and or herbal tea can add protection at the root of our vitality and health. The cost is almost nothing. There are no risks I can think of, so why not start these steps now and gain extra protection from autumn’s disease?
Studies showed that reduced body fat creates a 25% lower chance of developing cancer.
Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.? I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.
First, body fat, COVID-19 and cancer? Let’s ask why?
Part of the answer is toxicity.
Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body. Our blood and kidneys flush them away.
Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system. Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them. The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble). This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways. When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead. These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.
The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation. Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.
Burn Fat to Burn Toxins
When you burn fat you turn on the body’s detox fuel. Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy. Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins. As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.
This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features a special tea that can help reduce body fat.
The Key is in the Hogberry
I would like to send you a report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my three Natural Health reports described below.
This reoort is only available with my three Natural Health Reports.
These three reports are about:
In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.
The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries. Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes. There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse, with the added complication of COVID-19.
When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own. The very people, institutions and establishments that we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.
Ancient health wisdom accumulated around the world, over the millennia, can fill the gap.
The way to escape the dangers of high cost, deteriorating health care, is to not need it. Declare health independence… and create natural good health. There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.
Ancient health wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.
For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived and worked around the world. During this time, we checked out just about every source on natural health care. We even spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying the lessons they offered.
We took thousands of readers to Ecuador, met with shamans in the Andes and Amazon. We helped other readers visit India and also learn great health care ideas from China and beyond.
Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Natural Health Reports that can help improve the power that your body has. These reports are concise and to the point. In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.
We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.
Our health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy, self sufficient – providing our own good health.
The first report is “Sunski?”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.
We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found that a blend of Indian and Andean shamanic nutrition helped them kick start their health with weight trimming.
Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition. The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!
Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating. Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process. One chapter in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.
Sunski combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with all types of Western healers, ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.
We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.
The “Sunski” report was 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.
We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.
But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health was on the line. So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health. We spoke with holistic MDs, osteopaths, chiropractors, Indian vidyas, Andean yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live a naturally healthy path every day.
Don’t let the simplicity fool you… years of research went into these reports.
And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.
We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.
Why re-invent the wheel? Especially when time is NOT on our side.? We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.
Imagine… never worrying about what you eat and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.
A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:
#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.
#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.
#3: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day while chewing in a special way.
This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment).
One of the recipes is for high protein Chocolate Quinoa Pancakes.
- Carrot Cake Quinoa Brownie with Stevia
- Thermos Quinoa Kichiri
- High Protein Veggie Almond Savory Cottage Pie

- Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.
All of this information is in “Sunski” the first of the three natural health reports.
These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.
The second report shows you how to purify and detoxify existing poisons that have accumulated in your system.
The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.
Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles
This third report unveils one exercise that energizes and coordinates the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles, not while you are in a gym, but when you eat! The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.
The third report reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body. Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.
The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Here is what others have said about this information:
“Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon
“The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut
“You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity. Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia
“I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed. The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California
“The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all. What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.) But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida
“People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty. People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada
Good health is the most important asset in stressful times. Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.
