Keep an open mind about drugs and surgery


Before getting into this there is a definite given that must be understood.

When an idealistic and caring individual embarks upon his/her medical training and enters medical school he/she is totally unaware of the fact that the curriculum they will study has been funded by Big Pharma. So, from the get-go they will be continually indoctrinated with the “take-a-pill” and the “cut-it-out” dogma.

While in medical school, and to show that the school is “all encompassing”, they will offer, at max, two hours of nutritional education.

If you multiply a medical school education by four years of study and a minimum of two years of residency, it should come as no surprise that a physician knows squat about alternative, nutritional therapies.

Ultimately, the aim of healing is to remove the cause of disease and not merely treat a symptom with drugs or surgery because only when the actual causes of disease are removed can real health be achieved.

We know that many health problems can be cured with natural therapy and in articles to follow; many symptoms will be addressed with natural solutions.

That being said, there still will be times when the use of drugs or surgery may be necessary, even lifesaving.

If an arm or a leg is fractured you need it placed in a cast, not a comfrey poultice, and it might even have to be surgically pinned.

Say your kid wets the bed due to congenital problem; he or she would probably need reconstructive surgery and not grape abdominal packs.

So surgery, in its proper place, is probably one of the most admirable of medical achievements.

But, in many cases, the uses of drugs and surgery, both necessary and unnecessary, are the results of ignoring early signs and symptoms of disease.

Even tonsils that are greatly enlarged and severely scarred may cause enough stress to warrant removal, but may never reach that state if the early symptoms are addressed and treated properly.

Appendicitis, which is an acute surgical emergency by anyone’s standards, may never develop if the diet or the early digestive malfunctions are attended to promptly.

So, many surgical procedures are necessary only because the individual has not listened to the disease’s voice- mail until it is too late.

In my opinion, drug therapy, as well, is also mostly preventable. People with high blood pressure or high cholesterol or type-2 diabetes, for openers, could be cured without drugs. Yet, the very life of some people may totally depend upon drugs.

Getting back to surgery, the usual cause of this dependency were years and years of ignoring or improperly treating the first signs of the aforementioned maladies that caused the blood pressure or cholesterol to rise. In the case of type-2 diabetes, this is a fat disease. Eliminate fat and type-2 diabetes usually reverses within three weeks.

With many chronic diseases the improper treatment of acute disease acts as the major factor in their development to the point where drugs are required to keep a symptom in check.

Antibiotics however, fall into a separate and unique class of drugs, as they are a double-edged sword. They are essential in some stages of infection and at the same time detrimental in terms of human ecology.

Nearly any infection anywhere in the body can develop to the point that the use of antibiotics is a wise course of action.

This, however, usually occurs if the earliest signs of infection are ignored, or if a person’s vital energy and immunological resistance are so depressed by poor diet or other factors that the body is no longer capable of self-cure rapidly enough.

The times when antibiotics come into play must be carefully and seriously considered.

If you reserve antibiotics for those few times in your life when an infection is life threatening, or presents a serious threat to an organ system, their use is clearly justified.

But now, these drugs are used for nearly every bacterial infection that arises and even for viral infections over which they have absolutely no effect.

What this does is to reduce the future effectiveness of the antibiotic when it really might be needed, which then leads to and favors the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Hello MRSA drugs!

Another bummer about antibiotic overuse is that the most common aftereffect of the use of antibiotics is a bacterial or fungal infection.

Antibiotics, nonspecific to a large degree within the body, are developed to have a specific effect on specific bacteria.

In doing so, they can also destroy most of the beneficial bacteria within the body that either have a physiological support function, like those that produce vitamin B-12 in the intestinal tract, or provide a protective service against invasion by more dangerous bacteria or fungus.

Therefore, the decision to use surgery, drugs, or antibiotics must be made as the very last resort, or if no other alternative exists. When coming to that point there are no general comprehensive guidelines to follow.

Each case must be considered individually by a practitioner fully aware and proficient in natural alternatives as well as more orthodox methods.

The major problem with the drug and surgical approach to disease is that it generally deals with the end of the disease spectrum and concentrates on localized manifestations only.

Bear in mind that most processes have their origin long before drugs and surgery are required. But what we do
is to push the body toward catastrophe by ignoring or suppressing acute disease beginning in early childhood.

If the language of disease had been heard and treated properly at these times there would very little need for drugs or surgery in our lives.

What many people fail to realize is that a plant-based diet supplies the body with all the necessary vitamins, minerals, (except the sulfur that the Rockefellers depleted from the soil), and probiotics necessary for the body to function properly. It’s simply putting unleaded fuel in the gas tank so the engine can run smoothly

It is NEVER too late to become healthy. It all starts with the first bite.

Since going on the radio in 1981 these are the only products I began to sell because they work.
Oh yeah, going to will allow you to read various parts of my book – “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”, containing a wonderful comment by Mike Adams.

In Hawaii, the TV stations interview local authors about the books they write and the newspapers all do book reviews. Not one would touch “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Why? Because it goes against their advertising dollars.

Hesh Goldstein
When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
